So you said you found some clippings in your grandfather's papers. So how is he related to Capt. John B. Thomas?
Capt. was my gg grandfather, Julia was his first wife and not related to me. He remarried and his 2nd wife, Martha was my gg grandmother.
Mary was my gg Aunt on Capt. side.

Gail, are you related to James McGovney, Sr. of Lisburn, Ireland? His father's name was Thomas. He married Agnes Nancy Crockett. They had ten known children; five sons and five daughters. Descendants lived in Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio (many stayed in this state), Indiana and Illinois. They have entwined several times with my ancestors from Adams County, Ohio area. Let me know if have brick walls, perhaps I can assist you in breaking them down. God Bless. Mary

John Tener
If you study this John Tener family as long and hard as I have, you will see that John Tener was not born in Germany. None of his family were born in Germany. They are the Turner family of Prince Georges Co., MD. His family is closely related to the Turners of Anne Arundel Co., MD. The names Danner, Tanner & Tener are simply variations of the French name "Turner". My Tanner family comes from the true German "Huguenot" Danners from southern Germany and Switzerland. John Tener's family comes from the English "Walloon" Turners from Belgium or Luxemberg. This is exactly where Walloons get confused with Huguenots. Although the Turners came to America from England, this is the only possible explanation (other than simple error) for the 1880 census entry mentioning Germany. John Sr. Tener was probably born in Prince Georges Co., Maryland, USA, a son of William Turner & wife Ann Maynard. Sincerely, Landon Doyle Tanner

Battle of Natural Bridge
Gail, You asked me if B. A. Morris was at the Battle of Natural Bridge. I do not know, but it is possible because he lived very close to Tallahassee. I will let you know if I find out that he was there.

B. A. Morris transfer request

Thank you for adding the gravestone photo for B.A. Morris (C.S.A. inscription) in Roseland Cemetery in Monticello. He is Benjamin Augustus Morris, who was my husband's great grandfather. I have added a Memorial for his wife, Mary Margaret Roach Morris, who is buried next to him (Memorial #106598258). I would like to add his biography, family photos and family links. His Memorial number is 86043782.

Gail, The way the old maps were, Elizabeth may have been born in southwestern part of Pennsylvania, that later became a part of Kentucky. My understanding is that she was not yet three when the family was in Kentucky. So all she may have ever known was she was from Kentucky. Where do you have her siblings born? Especially Nancy? We maybe able to piece this together.

Added by M. Richards on Aug 31, 2012 7:12 PM

Gail, I noticed you have Elizabeth Douglas born in Kentucky, at least if this is same Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Douglas and Rachel Bodkin; she was born in Pennsylvania and raised in Kentucky from infancy. She married James McGovney, Jr. on October 6, 1817 in Adams County, Ohio. They had ten known children; five sons and five daughters. Could be another Elizabeth; but my James only married once and died in 1880, six years before his wife. Just curious, please don't take offense. I'm always making corrections and additions to my family's genealogy.

RE: John W. Tener

I can't answer (yet) about the marker on John's grave. I have started posting from the cemetery records that I acquired at the library. However, I also just made a trip to the cemetery and took a bunch of photo's and I am in the process of posting from my photo's and additional notes. I might end up having a picture of their headstones. Feel free to copy my pictures if I post any. I didn't get all the headstones photo's as I got wore out before I finished. I plan to go back some time - not sure when I'll get there. Would you like me to transfer these memorials to you? If so go into the memorial and choose the edit tab then chose the Suggestion a correction or provide additional information and give me your findagrave number. Check back to this cemetery as I have a lot yet to post. Grandma Patti

I have transferred memorial over to you- as you seem to have more knowledge of individual and family then I do.
Also= just a FYI- anyone can request a photo on any memorial- it does not have to be the creator of memorial- just so's ya know. LOL.

RE: Virgil and Anna
Virgil Howard's death certificate mentions tabes dorsalis - which is a complication of untreated syphilis.

Virgil and Anna
It makes sense to me now. However, one can't be certain who fathered Bidie. Unfortunately her death certificate is not online since she died in 1910 and most in NC are not available before 1913.
Virgil died of complications of syphilis and that MAY have contributed to Bidie's early death if he was her father.
Thanks for your assistance. I've asked the lady with the children's memorials and Anna's memorial to please link them and I have linked Virgil to Anna.
