I have linked Van with his father. Since he is your family, I will transfer him to you if you want.

I have found some duplicates in the Cook Cemeteries, and I am correcting them as discovered. The dup of your memorial has been deleted. I have not found a memorial for his wife Marian. Please posted it if you have that info. Most of her are buried at Fellowship Cem, Cook, GA; however, their memorials have been posted a a person listing unknown cem. I have requested her to select Fellowship Cem, rather than, Unknown Cem.

Josiah Rucks of Caswell County, NC
Josiah Rucks (1814- )

The 1850 US Census (Yanceyville, Caswell County, North Carolina) listed, in addition to Rucks family members, John S. Grasty (25/clergyman), Thos. J. Brown (45/Clerk of Superior Court), and Calvin Lea (15/student).

By the time of the 1860 US Census, Josiah Rucks and his wife Sallie were operating a hotel in Yanceyville and had twenty guests. Source: 1860 US Census (Yanceyville, Caswell County, North Carolina). This is thought to be what eventually became known as the Kerr Hotel on West Main Street in Yanceyville. See: Kerr Hotel.

Adjacent to the hotel building is a smaller story-and-a-half structure owned by Josiah Rucks that later became the law office of Emerson Scarborough. See: Josiah Rucks House and Katharine Kerr Kendall Article

See Also: Historic District Walking Tour

Note the following provided by the Caswell County Historical Association:

The brick Kerr Hotel is thought by Katherine Kerr Kendall (who grew up in the building) to have been built under the supervision of Josiah Rucks. Ibzan Rice is known to have obtained a tavern license in 1838 for operation from the building. Upon Rice's death in 1848, Rucks apparently took over the tavern and added to it. However, he was never able to pay for it, and in 1858 joined with the Rice heirs to convey the title to Dr. Bedford Brown, Jr. This son of the U.S. Senator Bedford Brown of Rose Hill (an historic home west of Yanceyville) practiced medicine in this building until he became a surgeon of the Confederacy, and later a prominent physician in Alexandria, Virginia. Apparently, the Rucks continued to operate the tavern until the family left Yanceyville during Reconstruction. A Confederate veteran, John Kerr, operated the hotel from around 1890 well into the 20th century. The house is on the National Register as the birthplace of Congressman John Kerr, and has entertained many distinguished guests.

RE: Yvonne Johnson Dickman
I had a friend who was already going to the cemetery so I released the request to him. He is the one that fulfilled your request. Since I couldn't see the note on the original request I forget what your note said. One of us will be going out there again soon so could you remind me of what your note said concerning Yvonne and George?

Thank you, so much! I am going to look at your tree right now. I'm pretty sure I have seen your name there, and I have probably gotten info from you in the hints. I have only been doing this for about a year, and I'm blown away at the amount of information available. As soon as I figure out how, I'll share my tree with you. Who knows? You may find something useful!

Society Hill
Carolina, it seems we are related. Many of my relatives on my father's side are buried at Society Hill in Crawford County, Ga. My grandparents were Thomas B. and Mary Railey Jackson. Sara Blissitt Howell was my aunt, Ford Richard and James Brannen Howell were her sons. Thomas W. Railey and his wives Mary S. and Minnie Hudson Railey were my great- grandparents. Minnie's father was John F. Hudson, his father Joseph Ephriam Hudson was my GGG grandfather. Nancy Ann Tucker Bryant was my GGGG grandmother. I would like permission to use the photographs you have associated with their memorials. There may be others. I will let you know if and when I make connections. Thank you so much for the work you have done.

Carolina, I am not familiar with how the MTDNA (which I what I think a woman's DNA is called) compares to a direct line male descendant. We are ready to compare when you get your results. Benjamin Lee b. 1797 GA descendant.
Thanks for your response.

Ernest Lawrence Talton
Hi Carolina - Bob Brown, a cousin of Ernest L. Talton has brought to my attention my duplication of the memorial of Ernest L. Talton in Melwood cemetery in Stone Mountain. I'll delete my duplicate entry on him; can you add (in his "bio notes") the detail from his military marker - that his full name there is Ernest Lawrence Talton and his military service is shown as "BM2, U.S. Navy, World War II"; his nickname is "Sandy" per cousin Bob Brown, June 2012. I know this info (except the nickname) is in the picture of the military marker, but it's pretty small. I'll delete my entry. Thanks, Ted Brooke, Cumming, GA.

I am the granddaughter of Judson David Partin, son of James Stephen and Sinda Rilla Partin. I noticed that my grandpa is not listed as one of their children, but he is in the picture with there family. He is the little boys in the front row of the family photo. I have information and pics of hime and his dad and some info on his brother that passed away. I would love to get in contact with you if thats ok. I would also like to find out if you know anything about Sinda Rilla Taylor being Cherokee indian? I was told that my great great grandma was full blooded but I have no pics or any other information on her. THanks and have a wonderful day!

Raymond Mann
Daniel James Mann father
It has been quite a while since I've had contact with you. Shannon Mann says that DNA testing has proven our lineage to Daniel James Mann, but that William Mann Sr. does not match up as his biological father. I have heard for many years that William Mann, Sr. was his father (and his mother was William's first wife, 'Sary' or Sarah, possibly an indian woman)as you have reported. Do you have any solid evidence of that? I would like to know. Thanks

I saw you left flowers at Wilma's memorial. Wilma was my great aunt. Her father William J Hendriks, was my great grandfather. She had a daughter named Vivian, and Vivian had a son and daughter (I won't write say their names as this is public. I was wondering if you know of them. I'd like to say hi to them.

Hello Carolina,
I noticed your flower on my memorial for Anna Mae Sheffield Rucks White. I create memorials from photos taken in my wanderings and add them to finish each one with some small amount of research so as to connect families. If you wish, I will gladly transfer Anna & her first husband, Percy, to your care. Please let me if you would like to ammend Anna's bio.
Peace, Louise

James and Mallice Rucks
Hi there, I was wondering if you would not mind if I used the headstone photo of James Anderson and Mallice Rucks in my family tree on Ancestry? I will, of course, give you credit for it. Mallice Lybrand Rucks was a distant cousin to my husband.

Hi ,cousin!
Carolina, we would appear to be cousins, as we share Marshall Croley as a grandparent. Would you care to contact me at timothywleslie at gmail dot com?

I especially appreciate that you have solved a mystery for me - I had Marshall's wife as "Sarah Ann (Bone) Croley" while her tombstone reflects Sarah E. Croley - I couldn't reconcile "Ann" and "E." for Sarah.
