|Jamie Holt||RE: William Hunt???|
Thanks! I was wondering because I read what appears to be a transcribed copy of Rev. Robert Hunt's will and he only mentions having Thomas and Elizabeth. No mention of a son named William Hunt.
I am also descended from the Strother family. My line goes back to Susannah Dabney Strother who married Thomas Gaines. They moved to Stokes County, NC and that is where I live. I am also descended from the Taylor family that produced James Madison and Zachary Taylor.

|Dorsey Barnes Drane||RE: Frances A. Spencer Allen #96352656|
Sorry. I was mixed up in two ways: I was reading Martha Hughes Winfrey's birh date, thinking I was looking at Frances A. Spencer's, and I misread 1806 as 1808.
Thanks for fixing the marriage order. By coincidence this morning I went through the exact same sequence of steps for a different relative.
Frances A. Spencer Allen #96352656
How can Frances Winfrey, born 1808 be their "first child?" Martha Hughes Winfrey was born 1806 and there is "no birth date" for their other daughter, Annie Lee Winfrey. Jesse Winfrey, RWS is now shown as Frances A. Spencer's "1st., husband as you requested.

|Jamie Holt||William Hunt???|
In Find A Grave Memorial# 34448375 you have William Hunt linked to Rev. Robert Hunt of Jamestown as his father. Is there any proof of this?
I am descended from Valentine Allen whose mother was Mary Hunt Binge Allen Jefferson, Find A Grave Memorial# 51828343.

|Dorsey Barnes Drane||RE: Frances A. Spencer #96352656|
I never noticed the age spread you mentioned. I've checked my sources and I've not made a typo. I will check farther though.
What bothers me is they were married in 1791 and their first child, Frances, wasn't born until 1808. That just doesn't seem right!
By getting her marriages in order, I was hoping you'd make her first spouse link be to Winfrey, and her second one be to Allen. Now they appear thus:
John Tyler Allen (1770 - 1821) # 96352376
Jesse Winfrey (1745 - 1815)* # 96352936
You have to unlink the Jesse->Frances link,
then on Frances' page, move the Frances->Allen to second place and insert a Frances->Jesse link in first place. Then they'd be thus:
Jesse Winfrey (1745 - 1815) # 96352936
John Tyler Allen (1770 - 1821) # 96352376
Frances A. Spencer #96352656
Per your request have included her "birth year." Her marriages are in correct order, please refer to "bio." By the time their daughter, Martha Hughes Winfrey was born Capt. Jesse Winfrey was 61 yrs. of age and Frances A. (Spencer) Winfrey was 40 years of age. Are you sure her "birth year" is correct?

Thanks, Carol. I didn't see Elise Meyers listed anywhere on the memorial page. Do you mind pointing me to where you saw that so I don't make the same mistake again? I don't see her listed as managing John McElheney or the New Hope Cemetery. I'm new to Find A Grave and still learning how it all works.

|Moira Mclean||Martha Hunt|
I am wondering where you got the name Mattie Hunt as wife to Robert Rivers and daughter of Thomas Hunt.
I do not see her name in the will of Thomas Hunt.
You are so brave to tackle "southern surnames". It has been my experience that the children of a given family go on to give their children the same family names. It can get very confusing. (big smile)
Thank you for all the hard work and effort you have done that allows our children to get in touch with their roots.

Oops!! Hit the wrong key. I just went to my tree and checked....William David Starr is my ggg uncle and Betsey Elder is my ggg aunt. He was a brother to my John Henry Starr and sister to my Mary Polly Elder. They were siblings as well as in-laws. All of their kids would have been double first cousins. You don't get much closer than that. Diane

|Diane Jones||RE: 66219927|
Your Janie Starr daughter of William David and Betsey Elder Starr is my relative. William David is my kin through the Starr's and his wife, Betsey, is also kin to me through the Elders. I believe she is my gg grandmother's sister. My gg grandfather, John Henry Starr married Mary Polly Elder.
The Benjamin F. Harper who was Janie's second husband, is a gg grandfather of one of the girl's in my UDC unit and we just recently obtained her certificate for his Confederate Service. I was just in the cemetery at Bethany UMC last week taking pictures of some of the graves that I needed for the soldiers. Bethany is about 5 miles or so from where I live in Tyrone, Fayette Co., GA. Where do you live? If you are local, we would love to have you come and visit our UDC Chapter. We meet the 2nd Sat. of each month, except for July and August. This Saturday is our meeting and if you are in the Atlanta area, you might really enjoy what we do. I can see from all your posts that you have a real passion for those who have gone on before us and the UDC honors the service of our Confederate Soldiers. If interested, my private e-mail is email@example.com. Message me and I will get back to you. Thanks for all you do. Diane Starr Jones
