I will get another picture for you and will transfer the management to your care. It may take me a while to get out to the cemetery and get the picture.

Thanks for the info....I will change the information on my tree.
Just so you know where I fit into the Adams family, I am the great grand daughter of Lavina Jones Morgan Pell who was the sister of Annie Belle Jones Adams.

I did have the the information that Margaret Adams Annabelle's in James's daughter did Merry Fred Adams. I also found a copy of Fred's death certificate that has his father listed as a Reno Newton Adams and his mother's first name looks like Anti.
I am now Hearing in my head the old theme song from the TV show The Addams Family...

Small World. My grandmother, Erma Bender Trame's family name was Binder two generations before her. Her father standardized the name to Bender. That is why I added those. Sad that someone that young lost his life to leukemia. Sad. My finger is having issues. I may need minor surgery on it to get rid of the nerve pain due to a cyst forming on the nerve. Not fun. I see the surgeon later this week. Thanks for asking.

|P Renee T||Hello|
Hello, Hope all is ok with you.
I figure I would check in.
I have really been busy since school started and starting a new job.
I just have not had much time to work in here.
I did manage to get Moms pictures in Pleasant View cemetery in Laurel Co Ky.
I have to go back and do edits and connections which I will do this weekend.

Thank you for your response. I really wanted to make that connection, however, I will keep researching. So many of the names are similar and the lines are crossing families. It is a great puzzle. Thanks again for sharing what you have on Find a Grave.

I looked at the 1840 census and saw the 3 men and 1 girl, but it doesn't say that they are relatives. It says 3, I believe, are farm workers. I think that is why the author of "STRONG FAMILIES OF VIRGINIA AND OTHER SOUTHERN STATES" is in a bind as no names. The girl is easier to assume since we know about Sarah Strong who was born in 1820 according to my tree.. I also looked at Mahala for the 1850 census, and she reported a son named Alfred Strong born 1833 and died 1896. So we now know two children for sure existed. In 1840, he would have been 7Records are available for him. I started to contact the man at the Brethitt Library but got distracted. Sarah married Granville Chesnut in 1838 so would not have been on their 1840 UNLESS they were living with them. I will look for that census for Granville. I could find no census for Granville except for 1850. He died in 1860, very mysterious. Judging from the ages of people they weren't living with them. I will check whether they may have been living with Rachel Chesnut, Granville's mother.

Yes, Thomas Strong and Mahala Wilson are my 3rd great grandparents. Their daughter Sarah Strong married Granville Chesnut. I come from 9 generations of Chesnuts. My great grandfather Samuel Chesnut had 3 daughters and finally had a son Sidney. He was stabbed in the neck by a friend when 14-15 years old and bled to death. So Samuel was the last male Chesnut in my line. Even while I was growing up many, many years later the family mourned Sidney's death.
I will contact the man you mention as would dearly like to know the names of all of Thomas and Mahala's children.
He was gone a lot as a Longhunter. I do have the Family Record of the children of Sarah Strong and Granville Chesnut. He might also like a digital copy of the book "Chesnut Family Forefathers". Since the time of our first ancestor William, it was spelled Chesnut in his will. I think people didn't know and changed it.
Thank you so much for your help including the hint about the census. Find a Grave is a wonderful resource!
