RE: Leland M Clay
Dear Dianna,

So sorry to take so long to answer. I just saw your message today. Leland and Jim Clay are the same person. He was my Uncle. The family always called him Jim but his given name was Leland. I really never heard of how he got the nickname, Jim.
Hope this helps.

Frances "Fannie" (Taul, Tall, Tracy,Arnold)
Thank You for posting this information about Fannie Arnold. She was evidently my GGGGrandmother. I was stumped by the same census information you were. Willie Tracy Tapp was my GGGrandmother. I have never known her by any other name than "Willie". I think she was an only child. Her Father's name was William Tracy and it looks like he died before she was born. I don't have an exact birth date for her as of yet, just the year 1854. I hope this helps.

Thanks Again,

Scott W.

RE: Bedingers
George Michael's Father Henry had a sister Elizabeth and this is the story GMB the Kentucky pioneer

Elizabeth, the eldest daughter, married Abel Morgan,
a son of Richard Morgan, a gentleman whose
family came from Wales to America in the seventeenth
century. Richard Morgan, who belonged to an
ancient family of Welsh gentlemen, was one of the
, first settlers in the neighborhood of Mecklenburg, now called Shepherdstown, a village on the banks of the Potomac, in Jefferson County, West Virginia. Abel Morgan, the husband of Elizabeth, was a physician,and during the Revolution he acted as surgeon tothe 8th Pennsylvania. His name is on the list of prisoners
confined on the prison ship Jersey, off the Long
Island coast. He died early, very probably from the effects of this confinement,

RE: Never Mind
Thanks Dianna. Just to give you a little more info. At one time there was a cem in Kingsport, TN known at City Cem. The land was bought by an industrial plant and all the graves were moved to another area which at the time was also know as City Cem. It (as you found on the message board) was later renamed Oak Hill. Take care.
