Brinkley Davis confusion
Yvonne: Could you contact me privately at rjfelts at msn dot com? I'm tracking the Meredith line and am trying to understand exactly which Brinkley Davis married Susanna Meredith in Lewis County, Kentucky in 1819. I'd like to get the location and date of Susanna's death along with the same info for her husband, Brinkley Davis, if you have it. Thanks in advance.

RE: Brinkley Davis
I cannot recreate a memorial for Lucinda Davis or I would be duplicating a memorial I previously made for her and then transferred to Glen Davis. Please see memorial #89803685. He has since made changes to her name, but it would still be a duplicate because of the photo (at least in my mind). You would either need to convince him to delete the memorial, return the memorial to it's original state (original name and without the link to Franklin), or perhaps best, transfer it to you so you can fix it.

If you want to create another memorial for Lucinda at the Lowell Memorial Cemetery, that's a decision you'll need to make. If you do create one, I can always add my photo to it once you let me know you've created it. Be aware, though, that Glen may consider it a duplicate and you may need to work things out with him. I wish you the best in getting this situation resolved.

So, the Lucinda Davis buried at the Lowell Memorial Cemetery is NOT the wife of the Brinkley Davis buried at the Creston Cemetery--right? I just want to be sure I'm clear on this. Also, how are you related to the Brinkley Davis at the Creston Cemetery and/or the Lucinda Davis at the Lowell Memorial Cemetery? Hope to hear from you when you have the time.

Brinkley Davis
As requested, I did remove the spouse link on Brinkley Davis's memorial (#70985785). I cannot remove the link to the child, Franklin Middleton Davis (#101249695), however, as I do not control that memorial. You will need to write to Glen Davis, the creator of that memorial to have Brinkley removed as his father.

It did make sense to me that the Lucinda Davis you had me remove (#89803685 - now controlled by Glen Davis) would have been Brinkley's wife as she is buried in Lake County, just a few miles from where Brinkley is buried. I guess this just confounds the confusion.

I hope you and Glen can get things worked out as I want my memorial to reflect the correct information for future researchers. Both of you refer to DNA information and it is difficult for me to determine what I should do when I get conflicting information from two separate sources who both claim to be correct.

Please keep me informed as to any progress you make regarding this matter. Thanks.

Hi, I have a lot of Hargrove's in my line and some up in that area. I need to work on them to see if she is my kin before I give her up.

Alzina DAVIS
Could you contact me? This Alzina is not the daughter of the Brinkley Davis who lived in Texas. I'd like to confirm.

RE: Brinkley Davis - Indiana burial record
I'm glad I could help! I'm not related to Brinkley Davis or his daughter, Alzina, and I would be happy to transfer both memorials to you. Just send me a message through the Edit Tab - Suggest A Correction on each of the memorials if you would like them transferred to you.

I corrected Brinkley's birth state (Maryland, not Massachusetts) and added some Bio information. --Indiana Bill
