RE: Martha Watson
In that case, do you know the family/descendants of George Smith Watson? If not, do you WANT to? If so, I can put you in touch with my contact. She lives in California.

Martha Watson
The Martha I was after married George Smith Watson (1854-1929) in 1882. They lived their lives in Middle Tennessee. Her name was Martha Paralee McCormick Watson. Their children were Arthur Bennett Watson (b.1880), William Oscar Watson (b.1882), and Effie Watson (1901-1942) -all in Tennessee, as far as I know.

Martha Watson
Do you have a coincidental name, or are you related to Martha? She was sister to my great-grandfather.
It would be great to actually find a direct descendant of some of his siblings!

Thank you for adding her maiden name to the memorial. I do like to try to find the women's maiden names. Thanks again, LAMB

Spitler Family
Wow! Thank so much for adding all the additional information and connections.

I'm not a direct descendant to the Spitler family, only through marriage. But, thanks anyway for the offer of transfer, they should go to someone closer. Will let you know if I find more information or connections to this family.

Appreciate your help,

TWA Crash
Just to let you know, I heard from Dave Davis and now hopefully can get the two sides together in working on the National Historic Landmark project.

Hopefully I will get things straightened out with my Almeda Evans. Still waiting to hear from one of my close contacts who supplied the photos on the memorial and whose mother was her first cousin. She had two children and from what I can glean on-line, her husband is 90 years old and still living in Tuscon.

RE: Hatcher 1956 TWA Plane Crash
Yes, I saw the article about the ring and the living descendants. I just tried sending a copy of the e-mail to the old dda.architects address for Dave Davis that I had, in case he's interested.

Hatcher 1956 TWA Plane Crash
How much information do you have on William Wallace Hatcher who died in the 1956 plane crash? The reason I ask is because I heard from the Grand Canyon Historical Society regarding another distant cousin of mine who also died in the crash. (Almeda Evans #63841698) Apparently they are trying to find living kin.

Here is an excerpt:

"I'm a member of the Grand Canyon Historical Society and have volunteered to assist the National Park Service in locating family members of the victims of the 1956 Grand Canyon mid-air collision between TWA and United Airlines. Grand Canyon National Park superintendent Dave Uberauga wishes to notify them that the accident site is being nominated as a National Historic Landmark and as a courtesy to those who lost relatives in the accident, Superintendent Uberauga would like to send a letter notifying them of the park's efforts to nominate the 1956 accident site and be available to answer any questions they may have."

Are you related to Nora since you are maintaining this site? I am related to her sister, Jennie Allen.

Thanks for getting back with me. Yes Nancy C.Hatcher And William Watson are on the "Unconnected Hatchers". We have been trying to fill in the gaps. My Great Great Grandpa is William Riley Hatcher, Nancy C Hatcher/Watson's Brother. Just wondering if you had any information to help me in my search. Thanks Anita

Ferrell family in Calvary Cemetery-Currie, Minnesota
You have a photo request for a (Son) Ferrell in the Calvary Cemetery in Currie, Minnesota. There is a Michael Farrell listed in the cemetery directory as being in the same section and plot as Mary Ferrell. I am not sure if that is the person you are trying to find. There are no individual names or headstones on these plots, only the big stone with the Ferrell name on it.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

More than welcome. If you want any other memorial, don't hesitate to ask.
Have a good day.

Ruckers and Hatchers
Glad to hear the phrase put to good use. Can't claim credit, but heard it from senior family members when I was learning to distinguish cousins from "Cousins."

Fortunately, since I'm doing this "by hand" and not by spreadsheet, there are fewer than 40 folks transcribed in the WCHS 1973 cemetery book (+1995 corrections), but I haven't gotten to the Ruckers yet because I can't... stop... adding... Hatchers.

And to think that, this time yesterday, I didn't know what one looked like.

OK, kidding.

RE: the age card
We have a quote around here for that: those kids and O.C. "share more blood with a mosquito!" Yup, my mom's baby brother and I were playmates, and his kids call me "Aunt", so that'll make for some fun research in another hundred years.

Speaking of what folks call each other, I notice that Octavia Cordelia (O.C.'s child) is nicknamed "Corda" on the Hatcher genealogy site, and "Octie" on her tombstone. Hope I don't offend anyone by going with the tombstone!

RE: Re: Alonzo De Alvarado Rucker
Whew, I thought you were playing the age card on me until I saw the word "fifth"! 1st, 4x away is at least close enough to have a tiny bit of family resemblance, not that I would know.

When finished poking around on Fold 3...will get my subscriptions' worth on this bunch...should have something for you. Let me know if you need anything.

Thanks again!

Another Rucker note
Meant to say that Melinda married her first cousin, which is how I come by some of these folks twice. And then her grandson, my great-grandfather married his first cousin, so I don't have as many names on the tree to worry about as some folks might.

RE: Re: Alonzo De Alvarado Rucker
Thanks for the offer, William, but hang on to -some- of your hard work, at least!

Lucy's sister Melinda is my 3g-grandmother, so neither of us is any "closer." I'm mainly looking around to see who in this crowd is, and was, where. Being in the neighborhood helps. Had also photo'd another daughter recently in Franklin; she has a child buried here, and so have been toying with getting them all posted, linked, photo'd and available.

If I discover anything interesting, biography-wise, I'll email it so you can cut and paste. And if any good photos come to light, I'll drop you a note. Thank you for everything you've done already! I hope you'll enjoy seeing the rest as well.

Your Cookeville crew
And also, thanks for that link. Interesting story, what of it there is. I may know someone who knows someone who may know something about it, and will certainly ask around. Will also stop by the cemetery to pay my respects. It looks like a lovely spot.

RE: Re: Alonzo De Alvarado Rucker
Sorry, I hadn't gotten back to my own messages page when I dropped off that last one.

Was laughing when I looked at the cemetery listing because, except for one, none of the women and children are listed. (I'm using the Williamson cemetery books for reference, too). Since I'm actually fluffing out the family tree, I suppose I'll add them all. :-D

Sure, if you would like to transfer any of the Ruckers, I'd be honored to finish adding the rest of them, get them linked, and maintain them until someone closer comes along. My own Ruckers are of the non-historic, farmer variety, but, like many other folks around here, I do descend from more than one of this group. I will leave it to you as to who you'd choose to transfer, but my ID is #47643935. And I thank you.

The good Colonel looks like he's the first Hatcher, so I should be able to link the rest of them up to him with no problem. If you would like to maintain any of those memorials, once they're posted, just let me know.

And thanks again for all. I do think that stew is starting to bubble! --Harriet
