John W. Burns
Hi, I really don't think John W. Burns and Mary Elizabeth Cunningham were married in 1804 as many have on Ancestry. Many of those same ones have her being the mother to all the children (she would have been about 7 if so)The 1804 has no proof at all anywhere I can find. Why I feel it is wrong is that the last part of children Elizabeth b. 1808 & John W b. 1809 have such a long gap til the next group born George W. b. 1819 William b. 1821. That's from 1809 til 1819 no children. I don't think Mary married him in 1804 and then had several children and then for 10 years none. I have seen a marriage date of 1 Oct 1818 listed by someone which I think is much more realistic. Would be nice to be able to find a marriage record. See if this clears up anything. Thanks

I think this may be a grandfather of mine. Are you related? We have never been able to connect our Gray family back that far.

RE: Thank you!
Dear Vonnie,

Thank you so much for all your hard work. It is a blessing for all those who search for their lost and forgotten family members and are trying to regain their sense of who they are and who they've come from. You do such wonderful and meaning full work!

Hi, Vonnie,

Do you have any family Cantrell members related to Dolly Cantrell who is buried in Hazel Green, AL?

She had a daughter, Cecil B. Cantrell, who married Elden Hastings, Bedford, County, TN.

Thanks, Vonnie! Sure enough, one of those Carotherses is a cousin many times removed. He's also one for whose descendant I just (after we last spoke) logged an atDNA ("family") match on my tree.

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Laban Hartley Sr. #34375320
Morning Vonnie, hope this note finds you doing well.

Laban Sr. memorial looks great. I'm confuse on the connection of his Mother that is listed. I don't think that is his mother, as the person listed was born seven years before Laban.

Re: Find A Grave Memorial# 64677378
Thanks very much for taking care of having the erroneous links removed! So far I have not found pages or gravesites for his parents, and that is after extensive research so it's possible nobody has made pages for Col. George and Mary (Meade) Walker yet. I know the county where they died, or at least where they lived at times of death (Brunswick Co., VA), but not the exact location. If we create Find A Grave pages for them, I have page numbers for several of their children, but I have hesitated to make pages without knowing where they are buried. If you think it's a good idea, let's go for it!

RE: received transfer?
Yes thank you for the transfer and your reply. I hope to visit the King's Mountain area someday and see where John Pierce and many others fought and also be able to visit the memorials at the private memorial park. Thanks again for all of your work. Now, I have some work to do myself on the memorial. Mary

James Reuben Walker
I was the eldest, born nineteenth day of July 1753. The names of his sons after my own, were John, James, Thomas, Joseph, George and Jacob. I like to have forgotten William who was the eighth son, although the fourth in succession, and only now living William, Jacob and myself.

This is from The Memoires of A Southern Gentleman by the Honorable Felix Walker and even you say there were 8 sons, 6 who served in the Rev. War. James=James Reuben who also sometimes known as Reuben.
