Bio and Links
The family's I am looking for originated in different areas overseas, but most came through NY/NJ. Moved on to VA and TN. A few in MD, and moved on to NC. My family heritage is rich in TN and NC. I love to not just find my direct line, but cousins, aunts and uncles. I love how there are circles on some of the branches on family trees. It is exciting!
Paternal; Looking for Atchley-Allen-Brittain-Lancaster-Marshall-Martin-Miller and the list goes on.
Maternal; Looking for Hillier-Manery-Horn-Ledbetter and more. These are harder to get confirmative answers on. My Grandmother Hillier was the first born in the states, I know the lineage after they came here, it is before that where I am lost.
The biggest question is my maternal grandfather KEATON. He was adopted by Keatons - I am stuck, and don't know what to do. He and his adopted parents are all gone, and were not talking when they were alive.

RE: Trying to contact you
Hadn't seen any message. We had a hacker get into our computer awhile back, and I don't know if some things may have gotten lost.

I hope you weren't one of the ones that got what looked like email from us---because quite a few people did---and we aren't the ones that sent it. But it caused us some other problems too. Some people would have been insulted by the email!!! Like my husband's boss for instance.

You are most welcome! They were all together, so it was easy to get all of them.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 103688500
I have the City's Oakwood Municipal and it was a database I got back in 2002-2004 timeframe. It only gives the names, burial plots, burial date, etc., and not the DOB, wife or husband names, etc.

That's a big problem with people posting in Oakwood in High Point. Most have posted them to the City's link, but they are really at Oakwood Memorial, and vice versa.

George Whitfield Lancaster
OMG!!! Your're a cousin!!!

George Whitfield Lancaster is also my gr-gr-grandfather. His wife "Docia" my gr-gr grandmother. Their daughter Lillie Lancaster Harger was my gr-grandmother.

But I tried to connect Dayton, Ernest, Lowell and Jeter to entry #3630145 that you sent to me, and it was for another person altogether.

I've never been able to find when or where George, Docia, or my gr-grandmother Lillie died or where they are buried. But I did make an entry for Lillie Harger so that I could connect other family members to her. It was said that she was buried in a family cemetery "somewhere" close to Walnut Cove. But the only real relatives that I know she had with any property were close to Lawsonville. My guess is that she is in the Harger/Frye/Collins Cemetery--but it can't be proved. There were quite a number of field stones in that cemetery. And some could possibly have been hers and her three children that died very young.

After Lillie died, her husband, Walter Lee Harger, remarried. She was Susan Audella (Della) Wood, a lady who was not much older than my grandmother, Kate. I don't think my grandmother appreciated that--so she went and lived with some of her other relatives in Madison, NC. And all of my life that I knew my grandmother--she never once mentioned that she had a stepmother at one time. Unfortunately, Walter Harger died himself in 1916 of tuberculosis. Della was never mentioned to me---ever. But my grandmother loved her father. It was years later when I was researching my family that I discovered Della mentioned in my grandfather's obituary. So I looked her up and actually found her still alive in a nursing home in Stuart, Va. She was very nice to me---but refused to tell me where Lillie was buried---and she had to have known. I think she was afraid we would move either Lillie or Walter so that they could be together--which we wouldn't have done. Della lived to be around 106 years old--and never remarried. She was still in love with Walter Harger after over 60 years!!

RE: Certificate
Some of my ancestors were also Marshalls. But I get my information from many different ways. I used to go to the cemeteries a lot, but so many other people have gotten into this that it's hard to find any that someone else hasn't gotten to first.

So I use old obituaries, death certificates, and info from other websites.

RE: Reid A Marshall - Death Cert.
I've been trying to get you a better copy of that death certificate, but my computer doesn't want to co-operate.

I believe I can forward it to you directly from Ancestry if you can give me your email address.

RE: Brittain Photo
Sorry to be so long getting back to you. Am so busy now, I don't know how I ever had time to work for 50 years. Any info you can pass along about the Atchleys from east Tennessee would be appreciated.

RE: Brittain Photo
Any help you could give me would be very much appreciated. As far as I know, he just appeared some 20 years after his birth in north Alabama. The strange thing is that he went all the way to Alabama to marry a girl who was also from east Tennessee.
