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.

William Willis Sr. Died 1851 Upson County Ga Willia cemetery #1
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.

RE: Wiatts of Virginia
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!

Wiatts of Virginia
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 (

Do you have any information on a James Wiatt/Wyatt, who could easily be William Wiatt's brother? Or a cousin?

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 or FamilySearch is a marriage record from 1819; and it only reflects the initial:

Virginia, Select Marriages, 1785-1940

Name: Jane R. Moorman
Gender: Female
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

RE: Nancy Trice
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.
