Bio and Links
Bio Photo Bill decending the steps, St Francisville, LA. one of my Davidson-Irons-Garland grandmas has been in the old family stories as Cherokee, I have come to the conclusion that she was Melungeon. others doing research on her have come to this same conclusion independently of me. most Cherokee grandma stories in the Appalachian mountain states turn out to be Melungeon. I especialy want to thank Jan for sharing her mother's and gma's old family photos. I will gladly transfer your relatives to you, just leave a message telling how you are connected. Please follow findagrave guidelines. please do not copy and post my personal photographs of my family members to other websites without my permission. I will check for messages on here.

RE: Jeremiah Profitt
Nancy, thanks, I do not know much at all. My mom was Nancy Jean Profitt, but unfortunately, when my grandparents divorced, she really didn't know much about her father, John Sherman Profitt.

I was also wondering about the melungeon possibility. Yes I agree the darker complexion makes one wonder. The story about cherokee indian ancestry as well as black foot also left me wondering. I'm hoping to have a DNA test on ancestry done this year. My tree is available also on ancestry.

Re:Roswell E Spencer
Probably not related. I'm from the Althorp line of Spencers from North Hamptonshire. Princess Diana was my 4th cousin twice removed (Not very close that is!)

Re: Samantha Spencer
Hi Nancy

Your best bet would be to go to this webpage and email someone on the contact list. They may be able to point you in the right direction.

Hope this helps

RE: Pearlie Blanton
I had heard something about a baby before marriage but not the details... My aunt knows the history better than I do but this might enlighten her.

Thank you!

RE: Pearlie Blanton
Thank you but I am confused as my grandma Hazel Blanton Johnson is Pearlies's daughter.

Pearlie is sister of Hargis Lee Spencer; Joseph Charles Spencer; William Spencer; Addie Spencer/Brandenburg and Alma Spencer/Ashley

Yes, as I said Contributor Mary Waldren put him in the wrong cemetery. I have requested that she transfer him #17855288 to the right cemetery and I would delete my duplicate, but no luck. I thought that you would like to know where he was buried and I posted a picture on #143260828.

RE: Burle Cobain #86177431
Thanks Nancy. I do have Cobain ancestors, but it's so far back in the family tree that I don't feel the need to "manage" that one memorial. Thanks for being willing to be caretaker.

William Toliver and his wife is buried in the Robert Lee Crouse cemetery and not the Martin Crouse cemetery. I posted pictures in both places and requested that Mary Waldren transfer them to the proper cemetery and that I would delete mine, but as yet this hasn't happened. I've been inventoring a lot of cemeteries and burials are in the wrong cemeteries and a lot of duplicates.
