That can't be the picture of a man born in the 17th century! There were no pictures taken then. And even if it were a portrait, it wouldn't be the portrait of a 17th century man! Look at the dress and hair style!!

Thanks so much for reminding me that "many entries on Ancestry do not a fact make". Sometimes I succumb to the sheer number of entries claiming that ABC is the parent of XYZ. You reminded me that I must never do this...

I want to take a minute to publicly thank you for the sponsorship of my great-great grandfather John Christopher Witt's Find A Grave memorial. That was a very kind thing and we sincerely appreciate your kindness. I am curious how grandfather John is related to you kind folks. You can reach me here on Find A Grave or via email at familyhistorian at frontier dot net. Cousin Larry

Thank you for sponsoring the memorial for Emma (Spikes) Fullingim. This is a very meaningful gesture, and your generosity is so appreciated. Emma's husband, Horace Edward Fullingim, was my second cousin two generations removed.

Thank you for the sponsorship.

If you would like transfer of memorial to your care, please send me a note and I will get to it asap. I am not kin, just fortunate enough to be able to photograph the beautiful cemetery and the memory to loved ones.

Minerva (Again)
I'm so sorry that this has turned into a fiasco.

I can delete my entry---if you guys don't mind. I hate that you have sponsored it though.

All of this happened from a "suggestion" from someone else. I wish they would have just left it alone now.

From what it looks like, until your entry is deleted, I can't change the connection of her two children to my entry, because they are connected to yours at this time.

But I hate that we even have to do this at all. I was directed to do this by another person. I should have just deleted my entry when it came up, and it would have saved us both from the complications.

I do appreciate your sponsoring my entry, and that you guys have been so willing to help. I guess go ahead and delete yours, and I've written down who her two children are. When yours is gone, I'll see that the two children get connected to mine--as it looks like they were both entries of mine also.

Sorry for all of the trouble.

Minerva Carmichael
Someone else had emailed me and suggested that you guys keep your entry because someone had sponsored it.

I'm not related to Minerva either as far as I know. But if someone sponsored yours, it means that they paid for that. I wouldn't want them to be disappointed finding yours gone.

I don't mind deleting mine, but I thought it would be nice to keep the info that I had found about her.

(I'm just relaying what someone else thought I should do.) But I'll go along with whatever you think is best.

Are you related to any Lancasters from Floyd Co., Va.???

Hi Guys,

I just got informed by someone that we both have entries for Minerva. Yours had been one belonging to Ralph Garland Tuttle at one time. It looks like someone has sponsored yours--even though mine had been first and has some info in the bio section that you don't have.

Would you mind copying my info from the bio on my entry using the "copy & paste" feature---and add it to yours---then I'll delete mine. I wouldn't want anyone to delete a sponsored entry. But that way my info can be saved also, hopefully making it OK for everyone.

Thank you for sposoring the Henderson memorials. They are my 9 times great grandparents. I saw from a token that you left that you are related as well. If you have any info that can go in a bio I would be honored to add it to the memorials.

Re: Joseph Edgar Grisham
Hi was just curious if you or your husband is related to him. He is my husbands great great grandfather on his dads side. I am always looking for anyone related to his or my side of the family.

Look forward to hearing back from you soon.
