Hello to my large and blessed Barksdale Family, each year that passes by I am in the unfortunate possition of having to work for the school district here in El Paso, Texas during the time of the reunion the children start school here in late July and it's very hard for me to get away during the time of the reunion. So the best thing that I can say is God bless you all for continuing the legacy of the Barksdale Family and thank God to you Butch Robinson for doing all that you do. Keep on trucking.

Excited to find this forum while researching the Barksdale roots in my family.  My Great Grandmother was Ella Barksdale (TN).  I've heard so many stories about her being mulatto, maybe white or native-american and black.  She was statuesque in height with fine hair so long she used an iron over the fire to straighten it, so I'm told.  She could've passed for white, but she married Isham (Isom) Martin (a dark skin man) from Carthage, TN.  To their union was birthed my grandmother, Wilhelmina Martin (Prince) in 1915 (Franklin, TN-Williamson Co).   I'm striving to learn more about my GGrandmother, Ella Barksdale.  I am told her mother died giving birth to a set of girl twins.  Not sure what state this was in, but was told that the twins were taken by a white family and raised as white.  I'm trying to confirm if the twins were raised by the Perry family.   Overall, this is a site I intend on frequenting to meet and learn more about the Barksdales.

Hello,
I just learned about this reunion from my cousins Willie and Vincent Barksdale. Our parents are siblings so I consider myself to be of the Barksdale Clan. My sister Priscilla and I are planning to attend, but have not yet registered. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and connecting with my cousins from Faison and hopefully, see how we are connected.

HI COUSIN BARBARA
This is the history of the Barksdales. There were three brothers from africa who were slaves. The three brothers were brought to the USA to Louisianna and given the last name of the salve masters' name Barksdale.  He kept one of the brothers and sold the two others. One was sold to a slave master in Tennessee. ond the other brother was sold to a slave master somewhere up north it was either Baltimore or New York. I am leaning more to New York. From these three brother's alone were born hundreds and hiundres of Barksdale all over the states. The Barksdale are very very very big. As so are the Gans out of SharonHill Pa. My wife is the greats 4x niece Her uncle is a boxing Lengend by the NAme of Joe Gans  The Old Master. The first Black man to win a championship belt of any and all division's. I have come to learn both familys live in the same city. I met my wife 29 years ago. In 1990 or 91 there was a big Barksdale Family Reunion in Jackson TN. We were told of this amazing story of our four fathers it was quite a story. Come Join us on my wifes Facebook page  Champagne Thomas and see all of our family together right from Sharonhiill Pa. Just about every Gans you see were either born in Sharonhill. PA or Chester, Yadon, Pa all over the place as well as the BArksdales. Wow we were both so blessed with big big familys the Gans and the Bardsdale wow just amazing. We need all the info and how much each family needs to put in. Because we do not want to miss another one, The last one we have been to was 1990 or91 along time ago. Please feel free to call us . Our children need to know one and all. We are to big and all over the place. We even have all kinds a stars in the fam. Oh we must talk. Billy BArksdale Cowan. 502-365-2110

Hello, my name is Rev. Dr. Wayne M. Weathers.  I was reading these stories and wanted to say that I am apart of the Barksdale family too.  My mother's maiden name is Mary Alice Barksdale and her father who passed away in 2004 name is Clarence Barksdale.  My grandfather had a twin brother named Claude Barksdale who passed away in 1994 and an older sister Mary Barksdale whose married name is Mary Davis.  She passed away in 1997.  My grandfather and great aunt lived in Detroit, Michigan and my great uncle lived in Sharon Hill, PA.  They were all born in Halifax, Virginia.  Many of my relatives live in Lynchburg, VA (Davis/Barksdale family).  Some moved to Detroit, Michigan and some reside in Chester, PA.  (This is where I am from)  In 2001 or 2002, there was a church in South Boston, VA that honored my great-grandfather (sorry I don't remember his name) because of the work he did at the church.  The only thing I know is he worked on the Harlem Tunnel in New York.

Hi there everyone, I've just recently discovered so many Barksdale's on Facebook. Our name isn't common so we're related somewhere along the way. My father Johnny Barksdale(deceased) and my grandmother Daisy Mae Barksdale(deceased). I don't know many of my family members on this side, but I would love to do some research on my bloodline. Hope you all have a blessed time!

Hello to all,

My brother Dewey Barksdale, Jr. received an e-mail from Leslie.  Tracking family roots  has become  very interesing.  The name Barksdale was not a common name and it would be interesting to know how far our families do extend.  My father Dewey Berkley Barksdale and his family came from Halifax VA and my siblings and cousins  wonder if we may be related.  If not, I'm glad I was able to view this site.  Very Nice..   I wish all a happy family reunion.
