William Francis
Hi Kathryn! Can you tell me more about Willam Francis, Find A Grave Memorial# 14067729? I am unable to find my FIL's great-great uncle, and I am wondering if this might be his final resting place. Thank you in advance for your help!!

RE: Roberts question
Thank you so much.
Im one of those great grand children :) hello cousin.

I will add this into my research and hopefully get more information from my aunt (she is currently looking into her stuff and sending me pictures as well). If you have any duplicates would love them as well.

Roberts question
I read your research regarding the parents of William Edwards Robers (1870-1946) You put his father down as Brown Cody Roberts. I went and read all the work you had done there. The 1880 Census does list a William but it is A and not E Roberts. Is there any other reason you are basing the connection?
I really appreciate this, The Roberts side has been harder to trace, I think because of the commonality of the name (although Myers isn't much easier).

Shannon :)

You're very welcome. I could not believe all the trouble you were having trying to get that photo! I'm glad I could help.

RE: Tattershall entries
I received Terrell ancestry to way back in the early 1000's from a descendant of Joseph Terrell, but I'd have to ask him about sending it to anyone else. I haven't much about Carolyn though.

You requested photos for Robert, Rosa, Marion, Donna, and Robert. My sister and I were able to find them and Alice, Laura and Roy. As I uploaded photos I found that you have created a duplicate for Rosa/Robert, spelling the last name Terrel, while the other Rosa/Robert is Terrell. If you do a search for Terrel, you can see all of them. The Terrell ones have some additional information. I hope this helps you in your search. Good luck!

Timothy Connell Terrell
Kathryn, there is a duplicate memorial for Timothy at #68032151. This person has their messages disabled so I couldn't contact them to let them know about your memorial.

However, Skip has a link to Timothy's second wife, Mary Ann (Cloud) High Terrell (1838-1913). This is memorial #40306857 and contains extensive information on Mary Ann.

Hello Kathryn,

Stumbled on memorial 63716702 which from her death certificate she was the daughter of William and Rebecca McGrail Taylor. Rebeca is a sister to other siblings who married into the Talbot, Kees, McGrew and Lappin families.

RE: H.G.G.?
Thanks, I have always thought it off that the small pillar is just outside the rock wall and only has the inital's on it. It has to stand for someones name for there is a dot after each letter.

RE: Cora Stone
You are welcome. I am in the process of going through the old part of the cemetery and taking pictures of all the headstones and marking and giving them numbers as to where they are. If I run across Cora I will let you know. Also I have a question. Outside of the main Connell section there is a small pillar, which is a headstone, I think. It is against the back fence just a foot or so away and has three letters on it. It reads H.G.G. Would you might know what it means?

RE: Cole photos
You are welcome, you should look into getting a new headstone for him, since he is a veteran, he would get one at no cost by the government. Then it would be there forever. Let me know if you want help with it. Alvin

RE: Shelton entries
Looking at his ancestry and birth in IL, I am doubting any Native American heritage for Stephen Ellsworth Shelton. His wife Maggie Hunter was Native American, her mother being Matilda "Tillie" Hunter.

I noticed you are descended from John and Esther Boyle McNary. I am descended from James and Jennet Robinson McNary.

My line goes back to Hugh McNary, born in Scotland about 1720, m. Janet Logan in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. Hugh died in Rowa, NC. His son John, who m. Ann Hillis in Rowan, NC died in Kentucky. Their daughter Elizabeth, b. SC and d. in Springfield, Sangamon, IL, married John Blue Jr in Bourbon County, KY.

RE: Moore photo
Next time I am at Fairview I will take an over-all picture of the room for you. The walls are covered in niches from the floor to about 6 feet high. The bottom 2 or 3 rows are these small niches with solid fronts and just plates with a last name. Above them are larger niches, some solid front, but most glass front with urns, photos, etc inside.

The family of David Wayne appear to be in Texas, Spring.

The infant decd 1969 was born and died in Mobile, Mobile, Alabama.

The naming of the boat was about 1983 and his wife was in attendance.

Hi again,

There is a brief obit in the Steubenville Herald Star August 27, 1959 . Her date of birth you have 1972 poss should be 1872.

She passed in Smithfield 26 Aug 1959

Hello Kathryn,

Will do the transfer shortly.

Not sure if a connection could be made given the period is pre 1750 and at best Irish records are struggling to provide adequate details prior to 1850.

The only comment I would make is the popularity of the name is more associated with East Mayo/Leitrim and Sligo areas.Putting it in a historical context and making a sweeping generalization it is more likely that Owen was an indentured servant and to have survived unlike many others and leave a family lineage is to be celebrated.

Frances Hatfield
I just posted a photo of Frances's grave marker and just wanted to let you know that they are burried next to John W., Esther A. and Azoria Hatfield and there is a picture for all them as well.

RE: Connell headstone
I just added memorials for Della's parents as well. You might want to link her to her parents.

Spent 2 hours yesterday taking photos of all the headstones in Mt. Carmel cemetery, so I am glad to add Della's to your memorial.

Best regards, Steve

Timothy Connel immigrated from the Buckeye state to Lawrence County in 1837 and accumulated 1,000 acres of land. His son, John Connell, followed him in 1830 (their dates, not mine) and married Frances, daughter of Ava and Rachel Pennington, who also settled in the county in 1837. The Connells and Penningtons, are of well known families here.
