What I learned in genealogy classes and talking to genealogy experts; Genealogy Without Documentation is Mythology. If You Can't Prove It, Don't Claim It As Fact.

Without sources you can't verify it, and you don't know whether the information came from a reliable source or whether it came from Great Aunt Sarah who may have some of it right, but may have mixed up a lot too. A single unfounded fact can spoil a good tree.

Our Pruitt/Prewitt family reunion in Tuscaloosa Alabama. We had a great time getting to know our family and branches from Tuscaloosa Alabama, Chicago, Dallas Texas, Tulsa Oklahoma, Oklahoma City and California. We had the opportunity to exchange family history, photos and visit the Old Prewitt Slave Cemetery where many of my ancestors are buried. It was an amazing, awe-inspiring experience to stand in the one place on earth which contains their mortal remains and to see important pieces of their life perhaps carved into stone. We are a family running 8+ generations strong and reunions are the anchor to our past, present and future.

During our family reunion we had the opportunity to visit other cemeteries; where our ancestors our buried, and add them to find a grave with photos of their headstones: Ebenezer Cemetery, Cedar Oaks Cemetery, Pole Bridge Cemetery. Holly Springs Cemetery, Greenwood Cemetery, Oak Ridge and several others.

Received my DNA Results from 23 and Me and Ancestry. I am an active member of Ancestry.com.

Willie Hardy, Sr #109826063
Hello, I sent you an SAC on 2 Jan regarding Willie Hardy, Sr (#109826063) and you have not responded. Maybe you accidentally deleted the email, so I am posting the message here.

"According to his death certificate, of which I have a copy, Willie died on 20 Dec 1949 and his parents were Zake Hardy and Marriah Miller.

Also, he was born in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama.

Would you be so kind as to update his bio with the names I have provided for his parents and accept the edits I put in for his birth and death?

Kind regards,
Monica"

The edits for birth/death date/places updated automatically. Would you please update his bio with the corrected name of his parents.

Monica :-)

Prewitt and Taylor
Sometime ago, our family lineages were somehow linked. I was wondering how much information you might have on a James Taylor (SR.) and his wifes family Hall.

My research shows Prewitts married to Taylors. The branch I am investigating ended up in Chicago Ill.

Thank you !

Allan

Sgt Kelly Johnson
Mr. Prewitt,

I served with Sgt Johnson Kelly and I noticed that you posted something on the site here in regards to him.

I will never forget the day he died...I was supposed to be with him and the rest of them when the accident happened. We were both in 324FSB, he lived in the room right next to mine and he was my squad leader.

I don't exactly know why I'm sending this email. I've had Kelly on my mind for many years now.

Respectfully,

Paul Parker

Hi J.D.,

J H Barber is my great grandfather. I visited the cemetery around 2006. My family still own some of the land there. I was told that we were related to the Prewitte's. My grandfather was Harvey Mills and my grandmother was Ada Barber Mills-she is buried at the Holly springs cemetery. I'm sure might be related. My dad Willie Mills and I did the DNA test with 23andme as well. Hope to chat with you soon.

Malissa Pruitt 1906(1910) -1976
Question for J.D. Prewitt

My grandmother's name is Malissa Pruitt (From Northport, AL). I can't locate any info on her parents and the earliest info I can find is the 1920 Census and she's living with her best friend's family (Sanders). You are very knowledgeable about the Prewitt/Pruitt family and was wondering if you could email me so I can give you more info, if you don't mind.

Her Grave info
