Thought I'd let you know I have a 95 per cent confidence DNA match with Don Meggs. We must have a Renfrow connection! Nancy

RE: Alsey Kean/Keen
Good Morning Julie,

Thank you for getting in touch with me concerning Adeline Kean(appears on her stone). My family doesn't know very much about the Kean side but I had added the info about Clary and Minton Jones to my tree some time back. My Dad was unsure if she(Adeline)was Temperance's mother or aunt, I would say mother. We don't even know when William Meggs and Temperance Kean Meggs died or where they are buried. Adeline and Elizabeth Meggs(Temperance youngest child) are buried beside each other in a small patch of trees on the Ross Farm in Anson County, not far from the Edwards Family Cemetery that I take care of. I have visited the site several time over the pasted few years.

I would be honored to see any information that you might share on the Kean/Keen family.

RE: james and esther renfrow
what a happy reply! It prompts several questions and comments on my part. I have found several related memorials in Find A Grave of the Amaziah Smith family and have had fairly good response to my updates. I have summarized the family movements in Amaziah's memorial which I think were significantly affected by the Civil War to include his own service. I was delighted to read about the clarification on Esther's family background. In the family notes i received I see that Arrena Ford, Amaziah's wife, had a previous husband by the name of Hawkins (sic). I had strongly suspected a family connection between Arrena and Esther and was initially disappointed when I saw your memorial. Now am re-energized to fill in some of that detail. I'll have more to say later. on a tight time table here.

RE: Michigan
Julia, It's true, we are in Michigan, born and raised in Dearborn -- now living in Flint. As we approach retirement we are still thinking we'll continue to live in Michigan. we actually do prefer the weather taken in all around the year and our daughters are not yet fully settled in their careers to be confident they won't move again. At first I presumed Find A Grave was New England oriented but later learned their are a lot of significant Mich connections in Find A Grave. Joe

james and esther renfrow
Julia, i see you have found the Renfro cemetery in Lincoln county, TN memorializing James and Esther. My wife's mother's name was Easter Renfrow Smith, granddaughter of Amaziah Smith. Family story is that he while serving in the civil war was captured by the enemy, escaped and was aided in that escape by Easter Renfrow. Is that a story you are familiar with at all? I have been able to confirm by census records that the James Renfrow family and the Amaziah Smith family both lived in Lincoln county TN near Mulberry in the 1850s.

George Bledsoe Wright
No, I'm descended from Bledsoe's brother, Larkin. I've added to Bledsoe's memorial the possibility that Benjamin may have been his son. Please let me know if you find anything else. If you're descended from Bledsoe yourself, I'll be glad to transfer him to you.

RE: Amanda and Lemuel S. Wright
You can transfer this memorial to me if you like. I don't mind taking care of it. All of his direct descendants are now dead if I'm not mistaken and of course, if some surface I will be glad to transfer the memorial. As for the Pinkney Wright material, no you did not send it to me and I would love to have it. I have included this family line in my tree since even though I am not a blood descendant, I am of course linked by my gggrandmother Amanda's marriage to Lemuel. I have a feeling you have what material I have compiled but I will be glad to send you what I have as well. You can reach me at
Many thanks, Rebecca

RE: Amanda and Lemuel S. Wright
I just realized that I never responded to your message. Thank you so much for all the information. I do so appreciate it. I am still working on the Mr. Johnson and Amanda's maiden name. If I have any luck I will let you know!

Amanda and Lemuel S. Wright
Just wondered if you were a descendant of Lemuel S. Wright or related in some way. My gg grandmother was Amanda Wright but my line goes through her previous marriage to a Mr. Johnson, her husband before she married Lemuel S. Wright. My ggrandmother was Artie Mae Johnson Hamilton. Her mother was Amanda. I have tried in so many different ways to find Amanda's maiden name and/or Mr. Johnson's first name. Would you have any information that might help me. Also do you know if Aida Lee Wright Gattis and her husband are buried in the Elora Cemetery. She is a daughter of Amanda and Lemuel. I have info that her husband died in Elora so I thought they might be in this cemetery but they are not listed. I'm curious if the cemetery has been documented in full. Also, do you know where Pinkney M. Wright might be buried -- Lemuel's father?
Thanks so much for any help!

RE: Pleasant Hill
Hi, don't know if I'll get up to Tenn. any time soon, but Sandra Hill Fitts may sometime. She is my cousin and she does much of the research on the Hill side. I am in Northern Mississippi below Oxford, and can look around here if you need anything.

Don't know about James Wyatt Wells. You know how big those families were back then and those families had big families, so it's hard to track down everyone although I try! LOL! As I do more research, I am struck by how many people have the same names! Drives me nuts! But what can you do....

Thanks for your time and if I can ever be of help here in Yalobusha county let me know.

I traveled all over the US as a young person, and lived in California a couple of life times ago! Grass Valley, Sacramento, San Fransisco, several places around LA, and finally Santa Ana in Trubuco(sp) Canyon. It was the '70's and I was kind of a free spirit back then! Now I'm in the smallest, little sleepy southern town you can imagine, teaching science to 8th graders...go figure..

RE: Pleasant Hill
Thank you so much for such a quick response. The Hill's were my great great grandparents. I was researching them on Ancestry and on Findagrave. I keyed in Pleasant's name which brought me to two Pleasants. I checked them both out, and found that he had possibly been moved to the Pauper's Cemetery. Since it only lists Pleasant Hill on the Pauper Cemetery Site I was unsure if it was the correct Pleasant.

While I would love to manage there graves, I had better hold off on it for now, might ruffle family feathers! LOL!

I live near Oxford Mississippi. Relatives are Raglands, Loveladys, Smiths, Hendricks, Wells,and Hills. I will soon, as soon as the temps drop a little, be going to several cemeteries in the area. I want to get some photos of my brother's grave at Yellow Leaf and go to Pine Flat and look for my ggg grandmother on my mother's side. I told Irma that I would try to take some pictures for her.

Thanks again, Diana

Pleasant Hill
I have a question. Pleasant Hill was my Great great great grandfather. Is the Pleasent Hill from the Hill Cemetery in Franklin, Tenn. the same as the Pleasant Hill that is interred at the pauper's cemetery in Franklin? If so I was wondering if all three graves were moved from Hill Cemetery to the Pauper's cemetery? Pleasant's wife was Adelphia Hill.
