|Ruth M. Brown||RE: Calvin Crain|
Well, the doctor evidently put the wrong year either at the top or the bottom. Who can say what it really should have been. You are probably right, so just disregard my edit. Have a great day, Brad. I appreciate your help.
|Tim Burgess||RE: Greenwood Cemetery in East Waco, TX|
Thanks Brad, great site. Tim
|Kevin McCulloch||RE: William Warren Evans|
You're welcome. So glad to know I could help someone out!

Source is from marriage records for Waco; History of Chickasaw County, MS Vol. II; family history records.

He never used middle name of Jasper. All census records show William Willis and his will and probate records do not use Jasper. His son used it
as a middle name that would be William Jasper Willis. I am on a direct line from them.
Would be happy to share my research.

Thanks; If you happen to run across where access to that family Bible could be accessed, that would be helpful to know. Good luck in your searches, too!

I noticed you had William Wiatt (Memorial# 80746453) in colonial Virginia, and mention of a family Bible.
I have a gggg-grandmother from Prince William County, Sarah Wyatt; but I've found where mention of her father was spelled as James Wiatt (she was married in 1790, with her father and father-in-law signing the bond (http://revwarapps.org/w337.pdf)).
Do you have any information on a James Wiatt/Wyatt, who could easily be William Wiatt's brother? Or a cousin?

|Tom Nelson||RE: Jane R. Moorman Anderson|
Good afternoon! You asked about my basis for changing her middle initial to "Robison". Well, I did some more digging and, unfortunately, the earliest document I can find on either Ancestry.com or FamilySearch is a marriage record from 1819; and it only reflects the initial:
Virginia, Select Marriages, 1785-1940
Name: Jane R. Moorman
Marriage Date: 20 Oct 1819
Marriage Place: Campbell, Virginia
FHL Film Number: 31050
Household Members: Name Age
James C. Anderson
James C. Moorman
Jane R. Moorman
She is on a number of "family trees" on Ancestry but some show the middle name as "Robison" and others as "Robinson". So it's probably best to just keep it as "R.".
Finally, wouldn't it be nice if, when they "recode" this site - later this year? - they will give the opportunity for those inputting edit/sac requests to give some sort of rationale for their input?
Thanks for contacting me about this. Tom in Kansas City, Missouri

Thank you. That is sufficient to steer her descendants to the right place. Jerry.
There was a flood of people from Wilson, TN to Waco at that time.
