RE: Rosella Yates Smoot
Smile; same here - glad to meet you. Cousins are a blessing from the Lord for our old age when most or all of our nuclear family is gone. If it weren't for online cousins, I wouldn't have any family at all (except for my husband & children for whom I am grateful)

William Riley Boling was my grandfather Horatio Seymour Boling's brother. So I guess Beatrice and my Mother Goldie May Boling Stanley would be first cousins.

RE: Rosella Mae Yates Smoot
Thank you so much for connecting this family. Isn't Find A Grave wonderful?

Hi there. Do you descend through John H Hensley and Virginia Burdette? I descend through John's brother Norris, and the woman Norris married's grandmother was a Burdett. I also believe Virginia's mother was a Chittum, which would be the name of the second wife of Norris's father.

Hello Ms Robin,

Yes, I believe she is my 3rd great-grandmother on my maternal line. That would make her a member of the mtDNA subgroup T2b15. I am related through her daughter Martha. It seems to be that my mother's side of the family was content to stay in West Virginia until my grand-father's generation.
I have been searching for other maternal descendants. I hope to be able to find links to the other T2b15 lineages, but no luck yet. So far all T2b15 lineages are southern with paper trails that disappear in the colonial period (or more recently).

Hi Robin

Yes it is one of the pleasures of doing this, meeting unknown family. I would really like a copy of the picture to add to my tree, thank you! I have some pictures myself of family members, if there is anyone you are looking for let me know.
Thanks again,
