Your question about "III", etc
I didn't see an answer to your question about the info on a grave stone, regarding the 3rd Son. But was written "III". Have you found any answer?

I work on the premise that a father and a son, with the same name is I/SR, and II/JR. If a family has several William's, Robert's, Joseph's, etc, from different members of the family, I take them by the year born and put a number "I, II, III, IV, V, VI, etc. after each first name. I do not put this on the end of the name or in the 'box', but it definitely keeps the names in order by the year they were born, and you can visually appreciate the amount of one particular name handed down. But 3rd son, might not be a 'III' at all.

Confusing as it may seem, if you have a 'William (IV) David (X) Burns I/SR and his son, William (VII) David (XI), Burns II/JR, you can see that two William's were born before the II/JR was born, of course to a different family.

Did you ever get the answer you needed. on the person in question?

RE: July Ann

You must've forgotten. You came on here and left my grandma flowers awhile back when I told you I joined Find A Grave. It's been awhile. I had been wondering how you were. As to our shared family, July Ann, I am now unsure where she is buried. I need to take the cemetery location off. At one point, I did some research and digging, to see exactly where they lived in the last census records, to narrow down the most likely official cemetery she would be buried in. That seemed to me would be the closest. She could be there and unmarked - as I know they didn't have much money to speak of. But since that came back unknown, she could be buried somewhere in an unofficial cemetery, or even a rented/and or owned farm (some people buried their family on their farms back then). If I found a break in info like that, I would have definitely shared it with you.

RE: Relationships
Hi Terri,

From what we researchers know, Daniel and Mary Cope Miller were married in about 1773. Their children were Mary "Polly", b. Abt. 1774; James Madison, b. abt. 1774 and Samuel D., b. 1780.

Sarah White and Daniel were married in abt. 1783. Their children were: James Davidson, b. 1 March 1784; Thomas, b. 1787; Daniel, Jr., b. 30 July 1789; Silas (my ancestor) b. 4 March 1794; Susannah, b. 1786; White, b. 1798 and Robert Davidson, Jr., b. 24 December 1804.

I would love to have your line but "meld" in with my tree. I will share what you want.

Betty Davidson Hicks, wife of Wade Hicks

Obviously there werre some errors in the obituaries that were posted:

1st - Barbara was married twice. First to an unknown Robinson. Her maiden name ws Finical. I have added a few lines to help.

2nd - I found a marriage for Mrs. Barbara Robinson to Eathen G. Osley, 12/29/1892 in

Hope that helps. I can't find her first marriage, but with name mispellings, that could explain.
