Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband is truly sorry now that he harped about me learning the computer! Thank goodness he did, as I've been able to find relatives on all sides of my family as well as my husbands going back many generations. Have found many relatives still living who have provided photos of people I never met. Also discovered that, on both sides, farming was their livelyhood. Now I know why I and my siblings "love the earth".
Currently looking for info and/or photos of:
Pelkey -- McChesney -- Courtney -- Morfogenis -- Allen -- Kelly

Hazel Allen Knott
I sent the parents to be connected to Hazel and the other sibling only had mother listed so I sent a correction for his memorial. Might take a few days to show up. I am in process of photographing Greenview so look for Georges marker photo. I am transferring him to you. Thanks Joy

RE: Rite Ellis Kelly
Mary Ellis McNeil, was my ggg grandmother and was found by a Captain Ellis as an infant by the Miss River. I have found no additional info on Cap Ellis or his wife. You can read this info on find a grave. Go to Monroe County, Al and the Old Salem Cemetery. I have no other info on the Ellis family.

RE: Mary Ragsdale Courtney
I sent your information on Lafayette Courtney to my source and she replied that Lafayette did marry after his wife Mary died.

Quote Carole Davidson, "Mattie was Will Courtney's Wife. Lafayette was married once after Mary died, but I Never found there first name. Grandpa Courtney Said she was good to him and the others, in the letter j"

My sources memory may not be too good. Maybe you can add to the history of the family.

RE: Willy Gray Kelly
I am related to the Dukes family in Marion Co IL, they all come from Henry Dukes 1817 TN-1878 IL, who migrated circa 1853, but Willy married into the family, so I am related to her by marriage, Now I forgot what your original question was!

A.R. & Laura Courtney
Hi Vergie,
A R (Arlando) Courtney was the younger brother of William N. Courtney, and son of Wm. Lafayette Courtney. He was married to Laura Courtney. Lafayette was Laura's FIL, not her husband. After Laura passed away, A.R. went to live with their daughter Eunice in Oklahoma.
--Gala Marshall (g-g'daughter of William N. Courtney.)
