I have been working on my extended family tree for many years. Thanks to everyone who has helped with their contributions here enabling me to locate many of the family members on Find A Grave and the many transfers.
Shutts Bible Hello John, Our family has a Bible that belonged to Ellen V Shutts. In it are family members listed with birth dates of John Shutts and his wife and children. Marriage dates, death dates etc. If interested, please contact me!
Hyder-Vandever connection John, I was intrigued to see your connection to James C./Eliza Dawson Vandever. I, too, am a descendant and have seen a possible reference to Hyder in my records. Their daughter, Susan Bouton Vandever is my great-grandmother. She was married to Joseph Alonzo Evans, and I think that I saw a reference to his first wife being a Hyder. They had a son, Arthur Evans; the mother might have died in childbirth. Does any of this seem familiar to you? I have never been able to trace anything about Joseph beyond what I just told you. Please let me know any information you might have!
RE: Melvin Walker David, I will transfer Melvin since he is your great grandfather. I have been following suggestion made by find a grave to transfer direct decendants as gggf, gggm, ggf, ggm, and so on, and so forth. As you can see in this note you sent me in a small town, the list could go on forever. Most everyone is somehow related. I will be more than happy to add any bio's or other info that you wish for the others. I will also at this time update all memorials that you have mentioned. Pete
