Mary Elina "Plinie" Dean Sledge Mary Elina "Plinie" Dean Sledge Find A Grave Memorial# 5600266 shows Erastus J. Dean as the father. That is NOT possible. 1900 US Census show three children in his H/H but they are Grand-children. The fourth is show as Philina Dean and she is in the H/H of James William & Savilla HIGGINS Nail, as adopted.
All four of these children are taken to be the children of Charles Jessie & M. A. McGaugh.
C. Jessie & M A married Oct 19 1887 . She died Oct 12 1894. With no one to care for the children - they went to his parents and relatives. William Nail' half brother is married to a Dean
Jasper N. Brandon Hi Clara and Terry, Thanks for you input. I processed the birth date edit for Memorial # 135126211, Jasper Brandon. The edit request said October 1840 but I believe you may have meant Nov 1840. The memorial currently says Nov 1840 for the birth date, let me know if you think that's incorrect.
But, more importantly....... have you been able to located the parents of Elizabeth Childress (1809 - 1840) who married Phillip Andrew Brandon? I found proof Elizabeth wasn't the daughter of Joel Childress and Elizabeth (Whitsett) Childress but I haven't located her parents.
I'm a descendant o Phillip Andrew Brandon and his wife Elizabeth Childress and would appreciate any information you have on their ancestors. (I'm aware Phillip Brandon's father is Lewis Brandon but don't have solid information past that point.)
Memorial# 11123683 Perlina Luster Wycoff; There some problems here. Perlina Luster Wycoff: I have a copy of her death certificate and I would like to send to you. Missouri State Death Certificate: #2026, St. James, Phelps, Missouri, Perlina Wycoff, married, b. 14 Jul 1845, 69 yrs., 8 mos., 2 ds., birth place - Crawford County, father - James Luster, mother - Mary Clinton, Informant - J,W. Wycoff of St. James, Mo., date of death 16 Jan 1914, cause of death - cerebral hemorrage, Place of burial - Masonic Cemetery, 17 Jan 1914. I found an older transcription of the cemetery. http://files.usgwarchives.net/mo/phelps/cemeteries/saintj.txt "Saint James City Cemetery, aka The Masonic Cemetery, St James, Phelps Co., MO, "Wycoff, Perlina L. 3/29/1844 - 1/15/1914." ------------------------------------------------- My opinion: The informant was John W. Wycoff, Perlina's oldest child. He was born in 1867 and his mother was born in 1845. He can not be held accountable for knowing his mother's exact birth date. I suggest we forget about the birth date of 14 Jul 1845, which was on the death certificate. The older transcription of the cemetery has her birth date as 3/29/44. Your source has 3/28/44. I do not consider this an issue. I do feel the the death date on the death certificate, signed by the doctor, is the best source for the death date. that date was 16 Jan 1914. The old transcription of the cemetery has 15 Jan 1914 and your source has 15 Jan 1917. I'm interested in your opinion. I'm going to post Perlina's death certificate on my tree on Ancestry. I do not want to create more date issues. That is why your opinion matters. Thank you for your time. Judy If you send a email address I will send the death certificate to you.
Georgia McPherson Deeds I've noticed that you left a memorial for Georgie Deeds and was hoping that you may have some more information regarding her family. I'm researching Brent Poynter, whose 1st marriage was to Margaret C. Birdsong McPherson-mother to Georgie (Georgia). That marriage occurred Jan. 7, 1885 in Johnson County, Arkansas. Georgia is listed in the 1900 census for Logan County living with and as a step-daughter to Brent Poynter. I'm kind of going around the bush with trying to find more information about Brent Poynter and so am contacting you to see if know anything about him. I do have quite a bit of info already but hopefully you can fill in some blanks. Thank you for your time. Rhea Gilbert firstname.lastname@example.org (my personal email)

Luster Hi. You seem to have a bit of knowledge about Luster genealogy. I have reached a dead end in my tree at a Luster, and was hoping you might have some knowledge. My 4th great grandmother was Mary Liza Luster, born 1814, most likely in Williamson County, TN. 7 Aug 1839, she married James/Jim Harper, also of Williamson County, TN. I am pretty sure her father was Henry Luster, because he was the only Luster in Williamson County censuses in 1930, and there is a white female in her age group there. The Harper children were: Margaret Amelia, James/John, Henry, William Frank, Martha, Robert, Payton "Pate" Riley, Madison, Louisa/Lou Iza, George W, all born between 1840 and 1865. I know for certain that Mary Liza Luster is correct, because her name appears with Jim Harper's on the children's death certificates, and I have their marriage license. If you have even the slightest information that might help, I'd be grateful. Many thanks.
Jefferson Edward Spell Your notation says Edd Spell had a twin brother. Tolbert Redding Spell. Did he use the name "Shepp"? If he is the Shepp in your notation, are there any other facts about him. Jefferson E. Spell would be my great uncle and his wife Iva Stanley Spell was a great aunt through my grandfather and grandmother.
