Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is me MANY years ago. (Where has all the time gone?) I love family history and have met many new cousins in my investigations.

The lines I am doing the most work on are Carpenter, Moorman, Dunlap, Minafore, Frazier, Morman, and Caffey. My lines center in Mississippi and then scatter worldwide. My Minafore line includes mafia from Cicily that settled in New Orleans!!! WOW!

I have a copy of the newspaper article that had his death on the front page (dated July 1872) and reads that they were glad to be rid of him!

Ok, that is all for now. Everyone keep up the good work. Weather and a bad hip causes me problems, but I am out there when I can... :)

Charlie Davis
Photo you added to Marion Seidel Kornegay memorial 11018670
Hi Linda:
My name is Charlie Davis. Marion Kornegay is my maternal grandmother; Frances Kornegay Davis being my mother. I was pleasantly surprised to see the family photo you had added to Marion's memorial 11018670. I'm hoping that you might still have a copy of that photo with better resolution that you could send me? Or, in the alternative, do you remember the source from which you obtained the photo?

By chance, are we related through the Kornegays? I'm just beginning to do genealogical research on them. I'd love to chat with you and share additional photographs of the family, if possible.

Take care, and thanks in advance.

I miss hearing from you. I know you are busy with family but I just wanted to let you know I am thinking about you.

Linda, you will have to ask Cindy Tebbetts Germany to put the marker photo on Nona's husband's memorial. Her name is beneath the photo.

Happy New Year...Bea.

Charles Fred Dawson
I have removed the parents as suggested. I've been told that the correct parents are:
Thomas B. Dawson (1864 - 1929)
Caroline Elizabeth Aston Dawson (1873 - 1936)

Thomas B Dawson is a son of:
William Dawson (1839 - 1923)
Lucretia Tabitha Moorman Dawson (1846 - 1927)

Is this correct now? Sorry. I'm not related and trying to figure out the family history of this family. Thanks. Mindy

Their suggestion:
I do not have this person listed in my family history. Notice the 20 year gap between Lucretia's last child and this one. Also check her age.

There is also an article stating that Charles T is her son and the T stands for Trip.

She had no other child whose name started with a C.

If you have further evidence that this is Lucretia's child, I would be interested in it. The article that he is W T Dawson's child does not relate to William Dawson. I have no evidence that my William, has a middle name.

I am of the carpenter line and was very interested in the photo. Could you please name the people? I have an obituary from the newspaper if you would like a copy.


I wrote back that I have identified all I can. Yes, I would like a copy of the obit from the newspaper. Please add it to the memorial. Thanks!

Paulina Emaline Thomas

I am the granddaughter of Paulina Emaline "Emma" Thomas Roberson Arbuckle, buried in New Hope Cemetery in Tallahatchie County MS. I was wondering if you could correct the name on the Find-a-Grave site.

Just a minor detail. Thank you so much for your assistance.

Please add any obituaries for the family as you said you had one/some available. Also, do you have any photos? The more children and grandchildren of Adam and Melissa that get identified the better. Which line are you? Thanks.

Hi I see where you had listed on John David Ferguson's death as TB. I am curious as to where you found this info. John D. Ferguson was a brother to my Great Grandfather R.M. Ferguson and I am trying to find out as much about John D as I can I see where he was married and had a son, but I don't know what happened to them after he died????? Hope you can help.

Thanks Stacy
