RE: Virginia Death Record
No, I haven't seen the VA record you mention for Florence Amanda (Norton) Brooks. If her daughter Estell (Brooks) Robinson was the informant, then yes, it seems likely she would know who Florence's parents were. If the record you mention is on Ancestry, I do not subscribe. Is there any way I can get a look at the record (death certificate?)?
Is the aunt you mention here in Coffee Co., TN?

Brooks (and Norton)
Hi Mike.
We haven't talked in some time. I am connected to the Coffee Co., TN Brooks family through Florence Amanda (Norton) Brooks. We last talked about Florence's Norton family and her brother(we believe), John Thomas Norton, who was my 2nd great-grandfather.
After nearly 4 years of practically zero activity (family issues, family health, etc.), I am slowly getting back in to the game, I hope (genealogy/family history).
Tonight I was refreshing my ,memory about the Coffee/Williamson/Franklin Co., TN Brooks family and found your photos of James Aaron Brooks, James Hillary Brooks, Willie Priscilla (Irvin) Brooks (etc.)on F.A.G. The picture of James Hillary Brooks shows him holding his infant son, Dewey. This picture of James Hillary and Dewey Brooks looks like it is cropped from a larger picture? If so, may I impose upon you for a copy of it?
My recent work has further filled out the descendants of Aaron White and Florence Amanda (Norton) Brooks, and I will be glad to share what I have found if you do not already have this info.
Thanks and best regards,
Greg Keeling

Mrs. Asa Hearne
This might be Easter Mary Jane Benton. Wife of Asa Hearne born in Georgia. She was born in Alabama, married 1823 in Georgia. One son was the Sheriff of Randolph Co.. Where did you get the story of the snake bite?

RE: Harris Cemetery
I know he has a headstone on the grave. I picked it out when I was about 3 years old and my maternal grandparents bought it. I think the picture is of a different grave. His grave is by the tree along the side fence of the cemetery. The headstone has a lamb on one side of it. Thank you though for getting back in touch with me I really appreciate it.

I want to thank you for posting my father's grave up, but I have to admit that I don't understand why you did. Please don't get me wrong as I said I am grateful, just confused as to why and how you even found him. Please let me know when you get a chance.

RE: Guffey
Thank You Mike, I do not have any actual documentation to support who Henry "Hal" Guffey's father is. I've used the book by Joseph Guffey as my guide. He was so passionate about his research and his documentation with his research. Since we may never have that actual piece of paper that can give us a definite link, perhaps one day a DNA test will be able fill in all the question marks for us.

Alexander Govouch McGuffey
Hello omikeo, I was looking at the memorial for Joshua D Guffey 1811-1901, memorial number 47434995. In this memorial it states that Alexander Govouch McGuffey 1681-1769, had a son James 1707-1769, who had a son James Guffey 1734-1786 who had Henry Hal Guffey 1771-1876. I have the book by Alvin Joseph Guffey stating that Henry Hal Guffey's father was Ephraim Guffey and his wife Nancy. Do you have any documents that support Henry "Hal" Guffey being the son of James Guffey 1734-1786? I did find a Virginia Land record for Alexander Govouck McGuffy where he left land to James but I've not found any documentation to support who Henry "Hal" Guffey's real father is. Any help you could give me to support exactly who Henry "Hal" Guffey's father really is would be much appreciated

Confederate at Fort Donelson
I communicated with you about a Confederate soldier you had listed as buried at Fort Donelson National Cemetery, Dover, TN. I forget the soldier's name, and would like to do a bit of research on him while my husband and I are assigned here at Fort Donelson, if this is ok with you.
Please contact me directly at: with the Confederate soldier's name & unit, you said he was from Mississippi, and my husband and I will see if we can get a better understanding of where his unit was and possibly get pictures of where he may have fallen.
