RE: Brenda Allday
Hi Robert,

The links to Brenda Foster Allday's parents are correct. I would suggest either placing in the obit a [sic - Foster] after each parent's name or a note at the bottom of the obit citation that the published obit was incorrect regarding her parents' surname.

Dear Robert,

I have joined the national Vance Family Association, and I believe I am related to the Newton County Vances. I have included the blood line that I believe to be correct.

I am willing to talk genealogy with you with only one potential problem. That is, I have never known any Vances, lived in Mississippi, or have anything in the way of material relating to the Vance Family of Newton County.

That said, how might we proceed?

Thomas "James" Vance Sr. (1795 - 1879)
is your 4th great grandfather
James Jackson “Jack” Vance (1818 - 1879)
son of Thomas "James" Vance Sr.
Letitia Vance (1844 - 1928)
daughter of James Jackson “Jack” Vance
Nancy Ann "Nannie" Sessums (1863 - 1947)
daughter of Letitia Vance
Willie Love Owens (1895 - 1969)
daughter of Nancy Ann "Nannie" Sessums
Helen Ruth Hogg (1924 - 2010)
daughter of Willie Love Owens

Boney Usher Williams
I am trying to find the names of Boney Usher Williams' parents. His memorial no. is 26097636, in Causeyville Cemetery. It shows his spouse and children, but not parents. Can you help me? Thanks so much.

Hello Robert,

Thank you for the message. Yes, I am related to the Wall family as distant cousins through my Caraway & Tisdale family lines. Much of my maternal family was born in Mississippi! Wall, Caraway, Tisdale, Addy, Belew, Smith & Johnson are some of my surnames.

Take care,
Ginny Lesak Jakoubek

Thank you so much, Bob. Other than the bible, which I am surprised to hear about, I believe the other instances of the name all came from that same census. I uploaded some photos of Carrie Etta (one with her mother Matilda, her daughter, and grandson, and the other of her alone) - I imagine you've seen those by now. I would love to hear your old stories. I found your "Female Side of Our Family" genealogy on the Lauderdale Historical Society site and am very much enjoying reading through it. I wish the Meridian Star had online historical archives - I would love to read the Alfred Snellgrove Blazed a Trail... article. I'll email you so that you can contact me privately if you'd like to share any stories. I have death dates but no sourcing, so I'll wait to submit those until I can prove them. Thanks again for your quick changes!

RE: Thelma Elizabeth
Thanks for your valiant efforts to correct this obituary. There is still one more correction to make. In the first paragraph of her obituary it says "Thelma Elizabeth Erickson was born to Don Erickson and Helga Lundquist." It should read that Thelma Elizabeth Erickson was born to John J. G. (not Don)Erickson and Helga Lundquist Erickson.Thanks again for trying. I know that it can be confusing when it is not your own immediate family and I thank you for your efforts on my behalf.
Swede was a wonderful and very loving person. I only heard from her once or twice after my husband passed on as we both got busy just trying to live life and take care of our families, but she really was a sweetheart.

Butler Causeyville Cemetery
Hi Robert, I tried to find the cemetery using you directions and could only locate Ebenezer Cemetery. I was at Causeyville Baptist Church Cemetery this afternoon fulfilling a few requests and happened to meet the pastor. He said he's heard of the Butler Causeyville Cemetery. Thought you might want to know. Veloyce

You have incomplete information on her site for the Kewanee Cemetery. She was my grandmother, and she had a total of 9 children. Martha Juanita Miller Brown is buried in York, AL. Her other children still living are: Eugenia (lives in Bessemer, AL), Doris Eloise Miller Sims (lives in Meridian, MS), Ambrose Earl Miller (lives in Meridian), and Melvin Glenn Miller (now lives in Hickory, MS).

Hi Robert ...
No, I am not related. But I knew this family when our family lived in CA for about a year. I was about 6 probably. Greg was a little older than me. (I was born in '54) And I think Gail was older also by a couple years. My mom and dad were friends with the Strattons.
The pic of Greg I found by searching the internet. I now live in Delaware!
