Bio and Links
Bio Photo For you contributors who boast of doing genealogy for 30 plus years and on Findagrave for years... hop to it!! Add your reserarch to Findagrave and make those links... you've had plenty of time... :)

You meet all kinds of people on Findagrave... most of whom are helpful and co-operative. Just spending a few minutes a day on Findgrave can provide a great deal of genealogical input. Thank you for your co-operation! If I can assist anyone, please contact me.

My father, David Kennedy, was an avid genealogical researcher, so you could say, this was one of my inherited interests. He started his search in 1959 after meeting then Senator John F. Kennedy in Washington, DC. He asked my father if we were Catholic or Protestant Kennedys, after which Senator Kennedy suggested that since we were not Catholic, we must have entered the US via Northern Ireland. And the search continues...

Some of my direct lines are Kennedy, Clayton, Merritt, Head, Prothro, Crouch, Wright, Goodwin, Bledsoe, Breazeale, Smith, Guyton, Moorhead, Kirksey, Wyatt, Griffin, Richardson, Meyer, Johnston, Lott, Knox, Gaston, Barnett, Ray, Sharp, Alverson. I have been working on my genealogy since the 1990s. I always try to give credit to those who have done genealogical research ... just a very common courtesy.... Thanks y'all.

Fran

Thank you very much and for letting me know. I will add that info to his listing in the survey and also check for any unmarked graves in that plot to see if that could be where she is buried. Thanks again!

RE: Edward
The online Aiken Standard archive does not have 1910 in it.

Maggie PORTER WEBB BROWN

Edd WEBB. He and our Maggie were together in the 1910 census in Giddy Swamp, Aiken county. They had been married 2 years, his second marriage, her first. He was c58 when they married; she was c32.

No wonder she's been difficult to track down!

Teamwork is cracking the code and solving this mystery.

Maggie PORTER WEBB BROWN

Fran,

Maggie was apparently first married to a WEBB! She was widowed and living in Richland county in 1920 and is in the census there as a boarder, working in a cotton mill.

Puzzle pieces fitting together!

Maggie PORTER BROWN

Fran,

I think the DC you added is indeed for our Maggie. Look who the informant was ... her niece, (her sister Annie's daughter) Mary Lee WEBB MOTLEY.

I wonder why that memorial shows her maiden name as WEBB? Unless I have missed it, that's not shown on the DC you added to her memorial.

Hey Fran,

That's an awesome clue you just gave me! So, Maggie was still alive when Julious died (1940) and living in Columbia.

Looking for Maggie in Richland county in the 1940 census struck gold (I think). Look at the one b. c1877. And, look at who is living next door in the same dwelling number! Isn't that her niece (her sister, Annie's daughter)?

Does that look like our Maggie?

Bob

P.S. BTW, I posted Nelson's DC today on his memorial this morning.
