RE: Mollie L Pleasants
1940 United States Federal Census - Mollie E Johnson
State: Tennessee County: Fayette Township: Civil District No 9Enum. District: 24-15Page: 2AFamily: 25Line: 22

Whew! I found a census with Mr Jesse H Johnson and Jessie Lee CLARK! Finally she is a real person. They had two children at the time. Cecil that died by electrocution. Mollie E and I am stuck there! She is lost pretty much after this census. And she was only 2.
Jessie Lee appears to have had several names I haven't had much luck figuring all of that out but this is my monthly update! lol

Hope you are doing well.

RE: BRANDON Elizabeth Patton Lock
Do you use Ancestry? I have a Steele, Jr., Maple Street Tree That has Brandons, Lockes, some Pattons, etc. Can I help in any way with the Thyatira connections? I live 7 miles from there and visit regularly to do research. Let me know if you think I could help. Also, our Rowan Regional Library has a great history room for research.

RE: BRANDON Elizabeth Patton Lock
So many branches from the immigrant Robert Steele. What a chore to untangle. Then men and women would marry second, third, maybe more spouses. Then just for fun the sons would name each of their sons with the same names as the uncles. With our Ninian Steele, one would think that would be easy to distinguish. Not so while using the naming convention of the earlier years.

I did have Mary Ann Patton on our tree but had not fixed the memorial. I took her name for that from the church cemetery list. Your edit helped me bring all up to date as best I could. Thank you so much. It's nice to have good editors.

RE: BRANDON Elizabeth Patton Lock
Thank you. I'll do my best. My husband's family Steele is also linked to Lockes, Brandons, and Pattons, many of whom are buried in this area's historical cemeteries. This is a very interesting job, genealogy!

RE: Mollie L Pleasants
I do understand. Not knowing my father's family has been such a mystery. They divorced when I was very young. As happened in 'those' days, he vanished. I remember my Grandmother as I did get to visit with her and her second husband.
I say I am a step child of a step child of a step child. Every thing I thought was my family has been re written! lol. I was blessed though. But in writing it has been a mess.
My mother's father was such a mystery to all of us. I have searched for a long time. Talking to her to bring out anything that might be a lead. She passed one year ago Sept 6, 2015. I wish I could tell her how close I feel to finding new information.
Thank You so very much

RE: Mollie L Pleasants
Oh Wow! I have cousins! Wow! I feel like I am about to make a touchdown! Thank YOU! Mollie has been a mystery to me. I do show her as having several kids. Jesse Johnson was the most difficult to find.

Erma was never married to a Williams. Her second husband Willie George Parrish remarried after my maternal Grandmother died and married a long time friend of theirs. A Grace Louine Notgrass Williams. Grandfather Parrish is buried with Erma in Cross Plains. Together Erma and Willie George had 6 kids and my mother. Grace is buried along with her first husband in Monahans, Texas he is Jessie Marion Williams.

RE: Mollie L Pleasants
Mollie Lightfoot Pleasants m Jesse Johnson Jesse H Johnson son

Mollie Lightfoot Pleasants m William Marshall
I don't think children came from this marriage.

Mollie Lightfoot Pleasants m Alexander Eugene Blain Laura Blain dau.

All of this is questionable - Mollie is for sure Jesse's mother and in Census 1930 they with Mr Marshall lived in Franklin, Robertson County, TX

Jesse H Johnson m Erma Dell Dudney Johnson Parrish

Mollie L Pleasants
Mollie is my great grandmother - She was married to a Johnson - they produced at least one son. Jesse H. Johnson. I have had an almost impossible time finding anything about this family. Jesse married my Grandmother Erma Dell Dudney sometime about 1929. They had one daughter Billie Lee Johnson (bc later amended to be Joyce Gwendolyn Johnson. Joyce it my mother. Thank You for all of the work that you do here. When I saw the information on Find A Grave I was so mother was born in Dec 1930 In Robertson County Texas. But she remembered Mollie vaguely.Her parents divorced within 1-2 years of the marriage. At the time Mollie was married to a man named ? Marshall.
Thanks for listening.

RE: Shaarai Shomayim duplicates

Thanks for your response. What follows are the memorial numbers to be deleted followed by the one to stay active. I believe if you try to delete and you say it is a duplicate, they must have the memorial number of the one to stay active.

Riga 80543929 and 169483192

Louis 80542967 and 169483686

Dena 80542727 and 163113570

Any problems please let me know.

I was able to copy your pictures for eventual uploading.

Good luck to you.
