I am new to this wonderful site and there are a couple of things I have learned. 1) There are some guys out there that only take pictures of the headstones, post what they see ONLY. They don't really care about the living, that might be looking for and learning about where WE came from. AND they SAY we the LIVING are not suppose to use this site for TREES and genealogy. 2) then there are us gals that I have "spoken" to that say: THIS SITE IS FOR THE LIVING and YES we can and owe it to those that have gone and, as one person says:" Remember me in my FAMILY TREE-My NAME-My Days-My strife and I shall ride upon the wings of time and live an endless life" And I have PROOF and SOURCES that tell me that my grandparents lived and loved and died and their headstones are out there, the headstone-cemetery "shutter-bugs" just have not found them in the backyards of where they lived 300 or so years ago. (and I do want to thank those "shutter-bugs" for all their hard work)
grandparents I am looking for and trying to find the proof: headstones-Wills-census-death certs-marriage certs are: Greer-Puntenney-Taylor-Finney-Heathcoats-Picketts-Lee-Manis-Toepfer-Budtke-Wahmann-Bartelt-(Buttke-Bartell)-Gaae-Rimer-Poynter-Truitt-Hamilton-Johnston-Saunders-Chapman-Lowe-Day-Groves-Hill. Delph-These are just the ones that i have found the PROOF for. AND NOW< I have a TAYLOR-GREER link back to John Taylor, brother to Ann Taylor who married John GREER> Hope it holds I need proof for 2 generations only the new gramma's names are: Pate-Midkiff-McCrocklin-Davis-Parker--Eunice maiden unk-Crawford-Robinson-Mary (unk)Mason-Mckechey-Tinsley-Ragland- These names from familysearch and CENSUS RECORDS for 1850
The Greer Family TREE I have added to this site begins with my father, Herschel Lofton Taylor. So if you would like to trace OUR family do a "search" of his name and then click on his mother: Lula Greer-Taylor then click on her father Lemuel Greer and all the way up the LINE click on the FATHERS. When you get to James D GREER and wife Elizabeth you can trace either one cause they both wind up in the same spot. then the GREER's changed the name in Scotland from GRIERSON. Where a cuz of mine takes over the trace until he gets to Malcolm Dominus MacGregor, go to "search" again 116315176 to pick up and the name changes again, and again, and that's the way they did it. "mac" means "son of" then there is another break go to #117414831 to go on with the GREER TREE. Hope you enjoy it and if you have anything to add please let me know. ALL MY SOURCES HAVE BEEN LISTED.
The NEW TAYLOR Family LINKs are: "search" Herschel Lofton Taylor again, then go to his Dad, Clarence Lee-then his Father, William H.- (then there is a break cause the creator won't transfer my g-grandfather to me), "SEARCH" 120952956 for William F-to Thomas Littlegrove- then there is a break (inactive) "SEARCH" 120955851 to John Peyton Taylor wife Mary C Davis=John Taylor & wife Ada Parker=Thomas Taylor = John Taylor & wife Eunice (brother to Ann Taylor-GREER) -Arthur Taylor &wife Margaret Hill =John Taylor & wife Margaret Finney. THE END of that lineage info....in Lichfield, Staffordshire England...
