My name is Karen and I am looking for information regarding a picture you have posted on your page of the school children. I am trying to locate anyone who would have information about the Sides family. There are three boys in the picture with the last name Sides and I believe they are related to Burnis Clifton Sides. I would appreciate any information in my search to locate the family. I've included the link with the picture.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,

Karen Sprague

His full name is Doctor Melton Sides. Dates are: "Feb 27 1848 - Nov 11 1929
and Jan 10 1845 - Apr 4 1907".
For his 1867 Voter Registration he gave "Jan 10 1846" for his DOB.

There were 10 children:

James Wiley Sides (1873-1957),
Gadzie (1876-1899),

Karen, Jackie Sides was a 1945 Rockdale High School graduate. I have researched the Sides and several other Milam County families in Ancestry.
