I have been doing genealogy research for 30+ years and still enjoy it very much.

I am thankful for the many 'new' cousins I've found via the Find A Grave site, and also thankful for the many new friends I've made via this site.

Naomi Mace
Hi Ruth,

Your favorite pest here. I saw in your writeup for Naomi, my 3rd Great Grandmother, that her mother was Sarah Hollifield. Exciting if so, for I only had the Sarah part. By the way, I have a new granddaughter, my first, named Naomi, so she is the fourth Naomi.

Thank you for all the incredible work you have done as a labor of love and respect.

RE: Katie Barlow Photo
Ms. Ruthe, I am so very sorry for the mistake. I apparently mistakenly pressed on Miss Katies page when uploading the picture.

Again, I apologize.

RE: Obituary
I have a lot of information about this family. I honestly don't remember my father telling me his grandfather had 19 children but I'm sure it's in his mothers bible. I just remember the story of the accident and my amazement that he was struck by a car in Bryson City in 1928. I'll add what I have. I am the grandson of William E. Henderson, which is another interesting story.

Ruth I made Nettie and George McMorran a memorial. Please request transfer and I'll be more than happy to. You can then connect to the others. I was just worried that the information/photo might get lost.
