RE: Michael Joseph Rutledge Memorial
Hi Susan,

Ownership of Michael's memorial has been transferred to you. It was my pleasure to have created that for him. My husband and son-in-law worked with Michael at FCI Dublin. Such a good man, taken from us far too soon, may he rest in eternal peace.

RE: Flemming
No, I don't have any more information on that line -- sorry. Thanks for your help with this too.

Thanks for the correction on the birthdate. To answer your question:

We have a letter that has been typed into a booklet called "Record of the Lynds of Ireland, and the Lynns of Tenn. (from there generations before 1769 to 1894). It was written by one of the grandchild of John & Martha Flemming Lynn (not sure which one). A cousin typed it later, in December of 1973. Regarding Catherine Henry Neely it says this: “Catherine Henry was married twice -- 1st to Mr. William Flemming -- they had one child (our Grandmother). Martha Flemming was b. ________ 1765. When a child, her Father died, and Catharine Flemming married Mr. Samuel Neely -- they had two sons viz, Samuel and James. Both sons (after their Father’s death) came to U.S. bringing their Mother with them. They lived in Stanley Valley -- I think they came in 1813 -- or 14. Catharine H. Neely died at her home in Stanley Valley, E. Tenn. Aug. 1828 -- was buried at the Meth. Ch. Grave Yard, Kingsport, Tenn. On her tombstone are the words -- “To die is gain.”

RE: Martha Neely birth date

family of John Lynn, Kingsport
I am John Lynd's (Lynn) 3 times granddaughter thru his son Charles, then his son J.B Lynn, then his son Ward Gaines Lynn Sr. Am so glad this is so up to date. Has helped me tremendously. Am putting my geneology on the back of my tombstone now so my son and his kids don't have to go thru this again.

Thanks for your update on her parents. I've been searching for Daniel, their son, h/o Katherine (Heilman). If you are following this line, I recently confirmed burial of Katherine's 2nd husband, Sampson Lanier #96821641. Thanks again.

Clise Family
Susan, I saw Frederick Clise (1814-1904) listed as a member of a Mecum family tree and then I saw your note on Just learned his son Jacob was killed at Antietam (17 years old). My Dad's first cousin (Lura Coleman) married into the Clise family. If you'd like to share info, please let me know, I'd like to put this together for my cousins.

Some Peck women, maybe other related family

I have a picture of 3 women; one I think is Eliza Jane Morley the other two I'm not sure. Would you help identify these women.
