I am retired and have enjoyed family genealogy research for many years. Should you have any additional information to contribute to my postings please let me know. Just click the edits tab on this page or the edit tab on any of my memorials and leave a message.
I am the great- great granddaughter of Wadeanna Horton, Wade Horton's daughter.
I see by your findagrave info that there were some discrepancies around the genealogy of Wadeanna.
Through ancestry DNA testing, I am a DNA match for the Horton line with other Horton descendants and am included in The Julius Horton DNA circle. So, I believe that Wadeanna was the biological daughter of Wade.
Is H.H. Henry? My 3rd great grand uncle is Henry H Sproles, son of Thomas Sproles, and I'm wondering if that is the same H. H. Sproles of your Memorial# 52714754 who served in the 1st Mississippi Sharpshooter Battalion. Also wondering if we're cousins and if you're in SCV.
Sarah Ellen Wood FAG # 67479522 I visited the graves and on the markers there is a middle initial you are correct. They are not duplicates! I will need to investigate further to find out what Sarah H maiden name is that married Johnathan Sproles and have asked the owner of Find A Grave Memorial# 97871855 to remove the name that is listed to not cause confusion since the headstone reads different. Thank you
Willam H. Allen Mr. Sproles, I am a relative of William Allen who is buried in your family cemetery. I was wondering how it came about him being buried there. I would love to know for my ancestor records.
Andrew Prymer I see you created a memorial for Andrew Prymer and there is a Sproles mentioned in the obit, are you related? I have made a memorial for Alice Riley Prymer, I can't find out much about her. On the 1940 census, they have her as Mary A. Prymer, parents Richard Riley and Beulah Riley, husband Andrew Prymer and born in Mississippi. I would like to make a better memorial, do you have any additional information or pictures? Her parents are not in the West MB Cemetery, unless they are one of my unmarked graves. There are quite a few Rileys in the cemetery. She is the only Prymer in the cemetery.
Duplicates Hello Sam, I am researching the Pippin line which is my family and have run across Find A Grave Memorial# 67479522 which is a duplicate to Find A Grave Memorial# 97871855, the 97871855 is the correct location for Sarah according to her death certificate and the inscription on her marker at the riverview cemetery, JC Sproles was her 2nd husband according to the marriage license date and census. Can you make the corrections and delete the incorrect Find A Grave? I have sent edit request to the owner of the Find A Grave for her date updates and linking to her parents just need you to connect her to JC Sproles and then connect to the child you have her connected to. At this time I have not been able to locate her 1st husband Joseph Abe Branson 1865-1930 (they had about 5 children according to the census )grave. Thanks, Daisy
My ggreat grandfather was adopted by Mary Sproles Casey and husband, Mary being the granddaughter to Miles Casey, I believe? His name was Frank Mauldin. Do you have any other Mauldins in your lines? Trying to figure out if they were related when she adopted him.
This is Laura, Dot & Sidney's granddaughter. Thank you for updating the information about their grave. I made a minor correction -- Mama Dot's maiden name was Quilter, which I've taken as my name. (from Laura Doyle to Laura Quilter).
I hope you all are doing well -- Mark, Brian, and Scott! Please say hello to Mrs. Sproles from me.
Robert Porter Mr Sproles, I would like to find my dad's service records, and I'm running into dead ends. Could you help? Also, my paternal grandmothers maiden name was Lofton. Is the Lofton in your name a family name? Kathleen Porter Wenthold, Roberts oldest daughter.
