I ran across findagrave several years ago, and as I have a love for history, and finding out what part my ancestors played in it. And have been continuing genealogical work began by my Grandfather Grant Anderson Pillow. This gives my the opportunity to share with my extended family, the rich history that our family has shared in. Everyone in the Memorial's that I have put up, or manage is related to me. And I am always willing to share what I find with any of my extended family.
Aunt Lily Cater Hi, just a note to say thanks for the extra information on our family tree. I am currently working on building my tree with the help of my 88-year-old grandmother, who fondly remembers your great grandmother, her "Aunt Lily." She says Aunt Lily had a kaleidoscope that she would let my grandmother play with.
My grandmother, Ruby Christine Wells nee Horton, is the daughter of Lena Horton nee Nicholas, who was the daughter of William Marvin Nicholas, who was your great grandmother's brother.
Georgie Stalcup My sister and I walked the Bee Cemetery in Johnston Co, OK yesterday. On close inspection of the stone for Georgie it appears her death date is 9/23/1900 and not 9/8/1900. This would make sense if Baby Georgie was born on 9/18/1900. The stone is broken and laying sideways.
Samuel Newton Smith Hi there: I understand your concern regarding his birthdate, but do you realize the Mary Ann (sister) connected could be incorrect? This sister is not listed on the 1860 census in Giles, Tenn. If she was born in 1857 she would be on this census. Also, the 1900 census, Samuel himself states he was born in 1857. The death cert. states 1857 as well as the cemetery records. For these reasons, I will leave the birthdate as 1857, but I will make a "note" on the memorial as to the discrepancies in dates. Respectfully, Tricia
