Bio and Links
I am retired from the US Army. I finished with twenty three years. I am related to the Miller's, Ford's, Anthony's, Godwin's, Calhouns and distantly to the Sparkman's. I now live in Anniston, Alabama. I still have many relatives living in the Poplar Bluff, MO area. Will be glad to answer any family history questions. I have tracked family members back to Germany, France, Ireland and Scotland.

RE: Pinkerton's
I've transferred them to you, thank you for requesting them. I love it when family asks for their loved ones. I wish more would, and hopefully some day they will.

RE: Clyde Pinkeron
I will give you any of these memorials, if you'd like them. After all, that's why I do what I do. If you don't want them, please put the changes under the "Edit" section & they will be fixed quickly. Thank you. :)

Re: R.H. Godwin
By the way, I forgot to mention illiteracy. This was prevalent in the Godwin line. Even my grandfather didn't know how to spell his surname. He wrote "Goddwin" on my father's birth certificate.

He spelled my grandmother's name "Donie Louvinnie Dyldine." Her name was Dona Levinia Dildine.

On another note, thanks for your service. I was formerly Signal Intelligence/Linguist, later reclassified to the Cavalry. I'm 100% disability retired and live in Texas.

RE: re: R.H. Godwin
Sonny,

Thanks for the generous offer, but I've already seen it.

Like many census and other records, his death certificate contains errors.

I looked at all the records I could find. In his census records from 1850-1910, he is listed as Reddick H. Godwin, R.H. Godwin, Redd H. Godwin, and Redrich H. Godwin respectively. Never as Redrick.

His father was Reddick H. Godwin. And his cousin born a few years later was also named Reddick: Reddick Kinchen Godwin.

The given name Reddick came from their cousins side in Bladen County, North Carolina. The first Reddick Godwin was born there in 1767. I know they are cousins due to an exact yDNA match between descendents of the Bladen County, NC Godwins and the Bertie/Hertford County, NC Godwins (some later removed to Hardin County, TN). The latter is my line. Lori Godwin and I figured out this connection and proved it with DNA testing. Her husband is a descendant of the Bladen, NC Godwins.

To illustrate how incorrect Death Records can be, my father's, my grandfather's and even my mother's death certificate had erroneous information on them. And my mother only passed away back in June! I've seen at least 30 erroneous death records so far in my family tree alone.
