I just re-read my message of April 21, 2011 that I sent to you and found I have the name of the cemetery in which she & Scotty were buried is wrong. It should be Pleasant Corners not Grove! (I was working on another relative who's buried in White Oak Grove and got my names mixed up.) I really would like to "talk" to you and share info.

I found you on Find-a-Grave and see that you are her ggggg granddaughter. (I hope I've not sent a message to you before!) My husband/his brothers are ggg grandsons of Isabella & Scotty. Their great-great grandmother is one of the daughters, Margaret Lavina whose daughter Mary Ann (Mollie) Besco Watkins Gray Roberts, is the great-grandmother of the boys. Also, Isabella & Scotty's daughter, Elizabeth is the mother of Joe Roberts who married first cousin Mollie, so they are also ggg grandparents on that side also. Now that I probably have you totally confused, would you like info on those two families? I can also put you in touch with a cousin whose g or gg grandmother was another sister of Margaret & Elizabeth. I'd be glad to share what I have which would mostly be coming forward, and I may have some questions of you, too. Please get back to me -- I'd love to connect with someone else in the family and share info. We plan to go to Pleasant Grove Cemetery in the near future.
