Sherry Wilson
Catherine/Mary Conaway
Hello, MDG. I wonder if you would share some info with me if you have it.

I found Thomas' 3 wives on another site which also showed that Catherine was the mother of Mary (my GGgrandmother).

Then I did some math and started questioning whether Catherine could be Mary's mother. Mary married Joshua Wilson in 1862 and both of their ages were listed as 21 (meaning she was born in 1841). Most censuses also show 1841 as do other records.

Catherine was born abt 1831 according to the 1850 census, making her 10 yrs. old when Mary was born in 1841. Even if we go with the 1860 census which estimates her birth as 1828, she would have been only 13 when Mary was born.

Do you think Mary could actually be the child of the first wife? Also, do have any info on where Mary was after Joshua died in 1901? I found more than 1 Mary Wilson in Kansas (which would make sense since Emera Ellsworth was there) but there's not enough info to know if she's the right Mary Wilson.

I would appreciate whatever info you could give me.

Aubrey Bickett #88235413
Aubrey & Judy Bickett's only child, Leta Berberich, has asked me to request transfer of management of her father's memorial #88235413 to me (F-A-G Member #47538864) if you would be so willing. The reason is that Leta and I have bios, pictures and parent linkages we want to incorporate. Aubrey & Judy were our next-door farm neighbors and best friends of my parents for more than 50 years, and I am doing genealogical research on Aubrey's mother Nellie Maulsby and her tragic story.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.

John Rosenberry
Thank you so much for the edits and all the info on John. I don't mind the cert on his memorial at all. I like it because it shows proof of the info.

Would you like his memorial? He is no relation to me and I would be happy to transfer him to you as you are researching the family.

Thanks again!

Margaret L (Summers) Cox #108382097
You submitted an edit which I rejected today. Subsequently, I found a death register for her and spouse John Marhsall Cox:

The only info found re: her birthdate is the 1900 census which lists Jul1843 but which conflicts with the birthdate of brother John M Summers, itself conflicted.

1900 WV Murphy District, Ritchie Co

John M Cox Head M 58 Sep1842, West Virginia
Marget L Cox Wife F 57 Jul1843, West Virginia
Calvin Cox Son M 21 Apr1879, West Virginia

[Note: 'Marget's stated year of birth conflicts with brother John.]

John M Summers


Death Certificate, WV Dept of Health, Cert #1142.

b. 19Sep1847 WV; farmer, married, buried: 21Jan1922 Buzzard Cemetery.


[Note: There is a conflict in his birthdate listed on the Death Cert, the 1900 Census, and the headstone. 1843 seems more likely given the 1850 & 1860 census ages.]

Joseph Wilson
Joseph Wilson #86839652 was born in Virginia, probably what is now Ritchie County and he did not die in 1847. His last son James was born in 1848 and he is in the census records thru 1870. Would you please change the place of birth to Virginia and death date 1878 in Ritchie County, West Virginia.
