Bio and Links
Bio Photo Quote from family genealogist:

"The English usually spelled it Pelham and it was pronounced with a silent h. Phonetically it can be
spelled many ways. There were also some German and Dutch Pellems [also dePelhams]. Thus I check Pehlem, Pelam, Pelham, Peim, Pelim, Pellam, Pellham, Pellem, Pellim, Pellom, Pellum,Pelum, even Pillom, Pelhem. However I've resisted the Pu- versious such as Pullum, Pulliam, etc.

Sometimes the enumerator misspelled the name thru hurry or neglect or he may even have been drunk.Recall in the early period he traveled thru sometimes hostile country on horseback and in poor weather. So he probably resorted to a bit of rum or grog."

Almost all of my pages in the Calhoun County, AL, area would not exist or would be highly incomplete without the generous help of Fallen Graver MaryAnnBaggettFerguson

RE: Eola Treadwell
You're welcome. She seems like a lovely lady. I added the GPS coordinate so I (and others) can check back later and update it with her actual nameplate.

RE: Martha Jean Pelham Efurd
You're very welcome. And FYI, I submitted a request to link Martha and husband Joseph's memorials together. I also placed the same two pictures on his memorial.

Re: Eola Andrews
Hi Charles. I'm doing great. I added the link you provided to Eolo's bio. If the wording is not to your liking, please let me know. I'll be happy to transfer the memorial, but I don't mind making the changes you want. It's always a pleasure to help others when I can. Thanks for the update. ~ Shawn

I rearranged the photo order so that the memorial is first again. I think the images of the two family bibles and the family tale written by Rhydonia are interesting. Maybe there is a better location for them to be shown and in a size easier to read. Doing well and working hard on other lines. Thanks for asking.

RE: Bright Byrd
Whatever works best for you. J.B. Byrd is not directly related to me. He was the nephew of my 4x great-grandmother. I have been working on his family (the Byrds) while I was researching her.

If you are related to John, Hello Cousin. John is my 1 cousin 4 x removed. I was wondering about the doc you show with the dates of birth and death. Could you email me the doc? Thanks Marian
