Francis Marion Day
At last we have the answer . Francis Marion is not a Day he is a Spurgeon . The old family rumors were true ,he was adopted by Reuben .My uncle did the male line test at FTDNA . We have no Day matches whatsoever . But we have an exact match with a Leander Spurgeon . Still working on finding the correct father ,but I'm leaning towards Leander's father .

I made a photo of Betty Jean Hollandsworth and posted it on her memorial page. I also made photos of the rest of the Hollandsworth Family there and the Sersey Family and posted those also.

Thank You,

My Line
Jack in the never ending search for the real parent of Francis Marion My line changes as I prove and disprove links . I was premature in sending that because I since have disputed Reuben E being the father of Reuben P. . Anyway I am hoping that through DNA matching i will eventually solve the riddle .

Notice That sometimes he is Preston W. and sometimes he is William P.
The only parts of this I can prove on paper is up to Francis Marion .

RE: Reuben P. Day
Hi Jack !
My grandfather left me a picture of his mother Katherine Mahalia Seals Hayes . Wife of Francis Marion Day . It's posted on my ancestry site . I don't have a picture of Francis Marion though but I'm told my aunt Ruby does . I have asked for it but she is older (93) I think and in poor health so I don't know if I will get it . Also I received pictures of my grandfathers brothers and sister This was a godsend for me with ancestry because they all had their names on the backs -else I wouldn't have had a clue who they were .

My knowledge of Francis Marion's father is only an opinion of mine ,no proof . I believe it is Reuben's son William P - the reasons for this are that He lived in the same area that Francis Marion was born . Also William P's wife had a baby brother who died at age 9 months his name was Francis Marion . It's easy to make mistakes but everything is leading me to this conclusion .Ancestry seems to pop up a whole bunch of new leaves when you're on the right track and as soon as I listed William P as Francis Marion's father I got a whole bunch of new Day's including your Hauck Day that I hadn't heard of before .
I'm willing to share the pictures I have on ancestry and please give that info to Bobbie Martin also . Even though I think I have the answer I'm still researching and won't stop without proof . Speaking of Proof you or you or dad could take the male ancestry DNA and prove the Day line from your limb on back . It's easy you just spit in a tube then wait for a few weeks while they analize it . We've been beating our heads to the wall trying to find a male day over here that could show Francis Marion's paternity but all we have are sisters and The only living boys we can't locate .
I'll be back will copy my line for you .

RE: Reuben P. Day Correction
Jack it seems strange to me that we have connected through both my mother (Egberts) and my father (Days) . But my DNA says that my parents weren't related . Bet those Egberts and Days knew each other way back when .lol
