|Bio and Links|
I'm a retired educator, the official County Historian & Archivist, Pres. of the 400 member Polk County Historical & Genealogical Society, founder/editor of the PCHGS Quarterly, and the History of Polk County, and 4 day a week volunteer at the little genealogy library I established here in Benton 18 years ago. I'm the heritage columnist for the local newspaper, the 'Polk County News', and help numerous people to 'find their Grandpa'!|
Although I am not related to the majority of families whose memorials, pictures, or bios I post, I do maintain a lot of them on behalf of close family members who do not 'do' Internet. We have fairly large family files, pictures, and obituaries and I love to share those as I have time. And anyone is welcome to use the bio info and pictures, both markers and people, that I add.
My basic family surnames are Ansel and Rutha Tipton Bailey from Buncombe County, North Carolina; Revolutionary War Patriot Col. William Porter who fought in the Battle of Kings Mountain and was in the NC Legislature for many years after the War (wife Mary Gilkey); The Holdens, Garrisons, and Owenbys from NC to Fannin County, Georgia; and John M. and Jane Ann Rogers Griffith, NC to GA.
Hubby James' side of the family is Jonathan Presswood, Esybous Maynor, Womac, Buckner, Clayton, William and Sophia Moore Dennis, and the 'brick wall' we all have, Harrison and Thaney Clayton Hughes. Harrison married 2nd Elmira Silcox in Polk Co. TN then moved to Arkansas by 1880 with his 2nd family, Price, Burt, Lafayette, Byrum and Sis.

I apologize for not writing sooner. I just realized that I typed in my email address incorrectly. It should be firstname.lastname@example.org. I sent you an email to your comcast account.
I'm looking forward to hearing from when you when you get a chance!
|Inga McCoy||Porters of Buncombe County|
My name is Inga McCoy and I live in Wyoming. I am researching some of my North Carolina ancestors. My third great grandmother was Mary Porter (born around 1811). She married David Rufus Stroupe (1809-1880). One of their sons was my second great grandfather, Solomon Rufus Stroupe (1853-1922). I am wonder if the Mary Porter in my tree is related to your Porter family? I do not know who Mary Porter's parents were. I also cannot find a marriage certificate for Mary and David. However, I found death certificates for several of their children which lists their mother as being Mary Porter.
I would love to hear from you when you get a chance.

Marina, you posted a picture of Mary Rebecca Bruce McNabb FDG#7153067 and her husband Andrew Jackson McNabb. I found that same picture on Ancestry and another lady email me today wanting to know where the picture come from. Are you related to Mary Rebecca or Andrew Jackson? If so do you have the original picture?
Thanks for you help Bev Pritchard.

You requested I add a bio to his memorial which I did, however, I have a question. You stated that he married Martha Emaline Branham but her marker is Martha F Russell. Is the 'F' a mistake?
