The Bowling Family of Nelson Va.
Greetings from Southern Vermont. I am descended from William Orville Bowlings' brother, John James Bowling. The parents of these brothers were William Bowling and Martha Jane Jefferson Meeks. She was the grand daughter of Antonio Giannini and Maria Modena, who arrived in 1773. Grandfather William Meeks was said to be of English descent and described as an adept and multi talented man. Martha and her family were known musicians who often entertained at Jeffersons. Catherine Gianniny, her mother, who arrived at the age of 2 was the best friend of Martha Jane Jefferson. Hence Catherine named her first daughter with William Meeks after her best friendI. you are further interested, let me know. Much can be found about these folks in searches. All the best, Rose

RE: Thomas Vivian Hudson
You are quite welcome...I was happy to share the marriage date of Beulah Mae (Ingoe) Strickler and Thomas Vivian Hudson. Beulah Mae is my husband's aunt. We visited them out in the country in 1977 in Nelson Co., VA. It wasn't too long after our visit that T.V. passed. It was nice to have met him. A very nice man.

Oletta Fitzgerald Campbell
I noticed that you added a photo of Oletta to her memorial. By any chance are you related to her? She is my fiancÚ's aunt on his mother's (Fitzgerald) side. His mother is Margaret Etta (Fitzgerald) Lucas. They called her "Aunt Lettie".

Interlink Paynes please
Dear Tina,

Here is this better as the EDIT Tab I have tried a few times.

Addison Rucker Payne 76782432 had Two Wives and a few children by/with each.
With his first wife you did link my Uncle Glenn Addison Payne finally. Another Brother who lays next to his wife and near his Father aforementioned and here Addison is George Charles Payne 76782510. Both those Brothers were in the US Air Force.

His, Addison Rucker Payne's second wife, Mrs. Jean Loving Payne 121714285 lays in Amherst near her parents I already had them interlinked.

Again please interlink the Second Wife. Mrs. Jean Loving Payne.

Also the son George with the first Wife 76782369.

If any doubt call Mrs. Jean Payne at the Nelson County Seat of Government in Lovingston, Virginia.

Thank you in advance.

RE: Addison Payne
Dear Tina,

Are you going to ? He is our direct kinsman. I just put his second wife, Mrs.Jean Loving Payne and her parents interlinked too. As you see and saw nobody else has.

That Mrs. many women have fought to have, attain, and as well retain it for centuries. When a Woman is married she becomes a Mrs. .

Regards and love to the families,

Jonathan Robert De Mallie

PS: We prayed for all our family, friends, and kin lost in August of 1969 in that record rains, mountain slides, and flood. Many as you may know are still amissing GOD Bless them all.

You're welcome, and...
Re: Paige Murray Massie Gates Flint

First, you're very welcome regarding the photo request I was able to fulfill- as for the other...

I've reached out to Joan Mays and asked her to review a possible duplication of memorials for your requested photo.

It appears that Find A Grave Memorial# 86765230 may be the original to a duplicate; Find A Grave Memorial# 107515978.

I've also gone in and requested that a spousal link be added for Joseph Flint.

I've asked Joan Mays to relocate her picture so that she may claim your request- credit where credit is due and whatnot. So- please wait a couple of days and I'm certain that we'll see some action on this.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Best Regards.

RE: John Henry Hight
I know you said John Hight was your GGG Granddaddy, but who are the generations between you and him? I looked and saw the Stratton's and they are very much related to me as is the Harvey's, Withers, Massie, Bolling,Mays and many others."

Dear Tina,

I do have a name.

On facts of Family Maam. Have you bought..and/or read the Nelson County , Virginia Books. Even on AMZN :NASDAQ you can purchase one, two or how many you want it will cost a lot less than I lost in the Markets today.

Now on what you wrote me back on the Intra Find A Grave mail:

Please show me you Kin-Lines now too: As so many people did inter-marry as I guess your folks did.


Not John Hight only Maam.
Please do your homework. It is and has been on the Nelson, Amherst, Ablemarle Counties Records. When Custer had control of Nelson Court House at what is Lovingston you may know some records were made inky.. the bloke spilled india ink in the record books.. .

Oh are you in the DAR ? My mother did all the Documentary work for the Lovings. Yes that's why Lovingston is named that. The prior only Nelson Seat was Colleen which also was Amherst County Seat till we spun off it.

Now on our John Hight aforementioned::: let me do your due dilly.. work here a wee bit..

I hope you knew of my Grandaddy Thomas Bland Harvey, Sr. # 23438673 as he had to raise Three Families, he built the Roseland UNITED STATES US POSTAL Department OFFICE and all his houses too. His only wife was Miss Marion Belle Bowles, she taught and was the US Postmaster in Roseland, Virginia. She was from over in Fancy Hill, Amherst County. Mary Loving was her and Grandaddy Harveys DIL ( Daughter-In-Law) by marring Thomas Bland Harvey, Jr.. Mrs. Offie Gunner was the US Postal Clerk. Thats George Gunner's wife.

Now more than saying on Mr. Hight as once you read the actual and factual documentation. Oh in Nelson County why not go see Mrs. Jean Payne in the County Offices. She lives on Red Hill right next to the Paynes Sky Top on what we call Payne Lane which crosses Louise Payne Crik. That crik flows into not Hatt Creek nor the old Mill Race but the Tye River where Andersons Store had been and Kidds store were prior before the World Record Flood we were in 1969, August.

( TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A Partial ACCURATE Record to follow::)

RE: Addison Payne
Dear Tina,

Thanks for asking.

To provide you accurate and more DATA.

I am Jonathan Robert De Mallie. Youngest son of Mary Elizabeth HARVEY De Mallie, DAR, OES, AAUW, DD :NYSE, etc..etc My mum is the eldest child of Thomas Bland Harvey, Sr. all her siblings are living yet the wife of Thomas Bland Harvey,Jr. is passed as are all my Uncles are too. On Addison Payne who lays across from Preston Parr's first funeral home which was his dads, George Hiter Parr.

My moms sister as we and she is called Louise Payne lives up in the house ( SKY TOP ) next to the Fish Hatchery off Va. Rt . 56 was Addison's Sr. DIL. ANd his son Glenn Payne's wife. You may call her or Anne Rucker Payne ( Youngest Daughter) lives with her and ask about me. Her son Bob, Robert Thomas Payne, owns what was Addison Garage and GMC Truck Dealerhip ( Paynes Garage in Piney River, Va. on Va. Rt. 151 . Addison Payne her FIL, lived next to John Dixon, the next house at Widows Corner in Roseland was Preston Parr and his mom, my Great Aunt Florine Harvey Parr. Yes across from Bethlehem United Methodist Church which my Grandaddy Thomas Bland Harvey, Sr gave the acreage for the parsonage and cem. he had bought as well the acreage at Windows Corner in Roseland, Va. 22967 .Addison Payne had two wives the second wife had three children by him.

You may know we established a Scholarship fund for Nelsonians named ( Addison Payne ) at Longwood University in Farmville, Va. which by the way is one of the Countries Top Ten Masters Level Universities. You may know of the older head of it. he was Commandant where my youngest nephew goes at the USMA , West Point , Orange County, NY . That gentleman was in my cousin's John McConaghy USMA class.

This year Charles Russell Payne, yes Addison's grandson, represented us at the dinner and a Nelson girl was chosen. Charles and his wife Susan Payne attended.

We have provided many funds for the Library of Nelson County too, which are severely needed still.

So you can see not merely words but actions taken for our direct kin.

Hope this is enough DATA for ya. It is as you see nothing is loquacious palaver.

Regards and love to the families,

Jonathan Robert De Mallie

Linda Morrisson
Carrie Skow Boyd Matson
I don't think Carrie is the half-sibling but rather the wife of Waller Massie Boyd Jr.

I have Carrie Skow Boyd Matson in my family tree as the daughter of Soren Peter and Lavina (Lilley) Skow born May 1871 in Kansas (1880 US Census). She married Mr. Boyd in 1894 and had a daughter Alicia. She appears in the 1900 US Census living with her daughter and parents. She then married Walter Matson, lived in Missouri (1920 US Census) along with her mother and sister, then moved to Virginia (1930 US Census). Of these facts, I am sure.

Elizabeth Wright
Hey Ernestine. I have heard Benjamin's wrights wife Elizabeth had the last name Bolling but one name that is more widely accepted Is Jenkins. If she is a Bolling she is most likely the daughter of John Bolling and Elizabeth Blair which would make her a Pocahontas descendant. But I am sure her last name was Jenkins
