|Gloria Tune||RE: Frances Tune|
Nice to meet another cousin! Regarding our Frances, wife of Travis Tune. I got that name from the DAR, would have to go back and see which submitter, but she had copies of an old bible that belonged to descendants of his son John Tune who married Mary Cooper. The record clearly states Johns' date of birth & his parents, but lists Frances only as the wife of "Travice Tune".
The Milly Daniels marriage record you have seen was to a cousin of our Travis Tune who lived in next door Mecklenburg county. He was James Toone. He died prior to 1800 & our Travis died circa 1827.
Several years ago another researcher & I were trying to sort out the Toones in Mecklenburg for a DAR submission she was doing...she's done well over 100 for her family & friends....when she ran across the James Toone & asked was I certain he was my ancestor. I had used what earlier researchers had put online never knowing it was wrong. They have our Travis as "James Travis/Traverse Tune" & married to Milly Daniels in 1770 Mecklenburg, then with all our Travis & Frances Tune's children. Well, needless to say my jaw dropped wide open.
After further research we found that James Toone died well before Travis Tune, that in fact they were cousins, that Milly outlived James Toone & there is not a shred of a record anywhere for our Travis Tune that shows his name as James, not even on his birth record in North Farnham Parish.
I think what happened is someone just mistakenly mixed these two men into one at some point...I began researching in 1999 & that was already there at that time, so it happened earlier. I have no idea who it was, but when my DAR friend began looking at the DAR submissions, she found the bible records for the person who had submitted Travis' wife as Frances & got copies for me.
I have spent these last few years since discovering that mistake trying to make folks I meet online aware of it & getting it online correctly. I must have gone 10 years with the misinformation & unfortunately gave it to the Halifax County Historical Society long before I knew it was wrong. Sadly, it's in the book they published, and it's also in the Library of Congress in a book published earlier by Frederick Lavern Toone from Mecklenburg.
There's not one single supporting piece of original source document in Virginia that validates that mistake.... just the opposite.
I have all this well documented in my database at http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=gjs4kids&id=I1173
If you'd like to speak further, my email address is located at the database. At some point I will submit to the DAR, but have waited in the effort to identify our Frances, wife of Travis Tune. I have wondered many times if she was a Connolly, Irby, Milner or other of those familiar family names that Travis was associated with. But so far I had yet to make any connection.
I have also not found any trace of a marriage bond in Halifax or adjacent counties, nor in the Northern Neck. It's perplexing and frustrating, but hopefully one day the puzzle with be solved.
|Lora Blankenship||RE: Walter Neal Family Line|
I have very little information on the the Neals at this point. I believe that Walter Neal (b. 1752) was the father of Rachel Neal (1784-1852) who married my 4th great-grandfather, Thomas Wray, Sr. (1776-1843)
My husband's name is Blankenship, so I haven't been researching that name. My maiden name is Little. I've been mainly interested in that line recently/
|Lora Blankenship||Walter Neal descendants|
Just thought I'd say "hi", as I am also a descendant of Walter Neal. He was my 5th great-grandfather.
"I have transferred management of both Oris Davidson and Cora Hicks to you. We are not related to either. We just took a lot of photos while at that cemetery looking for my Cauble relatives."
I think I jumped the gun and thanked you for the wrong family. I do appreciate the transfers. The Davidson belong to my daughter-in-law (not my stepmother). Thanks for all your work.

Thank you very much for the transfers of my stepmother's family. So glad you're doing what you do.

|A Wood||Lovelace line|
Does your Robert Lovelace show a marriage to Sara E Mudd? If not our line does not cross, as Roberts middle name is the source of questions.
Robert J? Robert W? Robert B? Lovelace. Missouri seems to be the only common connection.
DNA not yet.

|A Wood||RE: Asa Lovelace|
Researching Beatrice M Lovelace B: 1884, Daughter of Robert F Lovelace B:1859. Found info on possible link w Asa, so donated info found. May be linked, but still researching.
Lovelace line to Nahm line, to Payne line, to King line, finally to Wood line.
In your research did you connect to a Robert F Lovelace?(Missouri).
Hope this clears your inquiry.
