Jan 9 - I will be a bit slower with processing than my magic fast normal. I have just found out I have a cataract, so I will be having it removed in June. But will work on updates as my focas allows. Thanks.
Hi! Welcome to my little part of the world at Life in the Past Lane. [Online 10 years but offline for now]
Honoring the past generations, helping families to find their ancestors and finding out how many of us all have a connection and many more cuzins than we ever dreamed. Finding our ancestors and walking through the lands of times past.

I only work on genealogy on days ending in "Y"

For the cuzins I have met previously "Hi" and for the new cuzins I hope to meet "HI" to you to.
We have many many paths to walk that our ancestors walked, and our time here is in honor to them.

6-2013 NOTICE: PHOTOS of family members of my current lines - DO NOT TAKE without asking!!!! I have recently found my parents grandparents aunts uncles on other personal sites and have NO IDEA of when the cuzin took them or who they are. We are online to share information with family: BUT not without asking .. COPYRIGHT photos of precious parent /family photos etc are NOT TO BE TAKEN!!
Ask and see what happens ;-> !!!!

I leave "Daisys" on all family members that are in my data and lines [direct and extended].
I leave other flowers for memorials I have help link up and/or helped someone else with.
Other flowers also can mean I havent located or logged them in my data . We all have ALOT of branches and trees to climb and exp

RE: re Cecil G HIll 120714522


Ijust went into some of my ancestry files and I have a wife for Richard as Gladys born 1907 in VA.

That surely must be his wife.

RE: re Cecil G HIll 120714522


It just struck me after you finding the middle name as Gladys. I know another female relative named, Cecil and even a mail named Vivian. I bet that Cecil Gladys is his wife. I'm going to do some checking on that basis. I hadn't found a wife for him yet.

Thanks for the help.

RE: re Cecil G HIll 120714522
Thanks Vickie, for removing Cecil.

I have found that many times the Hill clan has joined with other cousins, etc. in buying land or other things ever since they started from NC before 1870 when they got to Va and W.V. and I have no idea at this point who Cecil was but I plan to try and check for him later. Many of the original land purchases that I have found have been by cousins going in together in those early settlings.

Cecil G HIll 120714522

I had asked you to connect Richard Hill to his father James Frank Hill but you also connect a Cecil G. Hill 120714522 that has a strange connecting tombstone. I can see why you might think he belongs also but he doesn't. Cecil was not a son of James Frank. He could be a relative that Richard met that I have not connected to my family but he is not a son of James Frank. As you can see the Hills are a large family. Would you please take Cecil off the connection to James Frank?

Fleming/Phlemon Brown
Hi Victoria,

I recently found your page on Haywood Cox of Grayson County (1814-1892) by way of My third great grandfather was Fleming Brown (born abt. 1842), a "mulatto" who, as an eight-year-old, appears as a member of Haywood's household in 1850 and as a next-door neighbor in 1860. Fleming shows up in the census in 1870, but he has moved with his family to Old Town.

I was wondering, would you possibly have any idea as to why Fleming and his brother Jack lived with Haywood and the Bennetts in 1850? Merely a ward, perhaps? What do you think?

Nathan Ward
The Nathan Ward listed in the 1860 Whitley County census died prior to 1870. The 1870 Whitely County census lists his widow Eleanor Ward along with most of the children listed in the 1860 census. The 1850 census is a transcription error. Note in the original that the census taker tried to correct the mistake and did a very sloppy job of trying to change the name of the head of the household.

Thank you for all the work you do in tracking down tombstones and their inscriptions and sharing the information with others. My granddaughter is 7 generations removed from this grandfather.

Nathan Ward Jr
I've been trying to document Ward Cemtery in Corbin correctly. I'd like to help you locate Nathan Ward Jr, but I cannot find where he might be positioned at in the cemetery. Would you have any more details that I could go on? Right now I'm not even sure he's in this cemetery. Any info on a lead might help. Even if he's in another close cemetery I would like to help you correctly document.
