Bio and Links
Bio Photo "We Are The Story Tellers We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all those who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story."

If you find any errors, let me know. If you have bio or notes to add to my listing, I'll review them and add them as appropriate, I do need documentation of dates or other information before I will list it. I may add the info and use your contributor name as the source.

PLEASE REQUEST TRANSFERS.... Unless related to me, I will transfer management. If you are family or have another good reason, just tell me your relationship or reason. Most transfers will be granted, my transfer rules are more lax than guidelines.

Margaret Ellen Hamilton Griffin
Did you actually see the grave stone for Margaret? I do not want to be taking a trip if she is not buried there. Thanks.

Marriage
Dorothy Mae "Dottie" Bish Fenstermaker
Memorial# 30529379

I haven't worked on this file yet - the info was from the first file manager, but I read it a little different than you:

"Dorothy married Clyde E Fenstermaker. In 2000, 2008 she was living in Ravenna, Portage County, Ohio."

To me the period after Fenstermaker ends that sentence.

The next sentence is saying that in the year 2000 & 2008 she was living in Ravenna.

I will separate the sentences though to make that easier to understand and add the marriage year when I have researched her.

Thanks, JMartin

Mary Wortham George
I see that you are the caretaker for Forney George and Mary Wortham George. I am with the Research Committee of the Burwell School Historic Site in Hillsborough, NC. We are trying to track down folks who are kin (even very distant) to people who studied at the School when it operated 1837-1857. Mary Wortham of Granville County was one of those students. I know that she married Forney George and they had a daughter Mary. Mary Wortham George died young and the daughter was raised by her father, Forney George and his 2nd wife Ann Elizabeth Lash. We would be interested in any information you have on the George family of Columbus County. We are hosting a Burwell Homecoming in June 2014 and want to invite all we can find. If you are kin to the Georges please send me your mailing address and I can send other info. My direct email is kay.singer@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
