I've made the changes to the biography. Hope they're correct. If you have a photo of him, it would be wonderful if you'd add it to the memorial. I love about 2 blocks from Tatum Blvd. here in Phoenix so have at least a passing interest in his story. Thanks!

RE: Herschel O. Prideaux
Thanks! That is a very interesting article about William C. Norwood. I like the part where you were able tell where he lived and what's there today based on the Public Land Survey System (Twp, Range, Sections, Quarters). I'm a big fan of old survey maps myself. Glad to see you made references to the Find-a-Grave memorial. I uploaded a scanned image of the obit in case want a snag a copy of it. I probably have other news clipping about the Norwoods and the Feasters. They were quite popular back in their day.

RE: Herschel O. Prideaux
I could try, but I would much prefer that you contact Jon yourself. He may have questions that only you could answer. If it were my memorial, I would probably mention the birth discrepancy in the bio and make the dates match whatever is on the headstone.

Here's the message that you sent to me in case you want to forward it to Jon:

I'm researching Edward A. Graham. Herschel Otis Prideaux's wife, Mary, was the daughter of Edward. I found Herschel's WWI draft card on Ancestry and it says that he was born July 16, 1888 in Farmton, FL. Farmton is an unincorporated settlement in Volusia County, near the St. John's River and it is only a few miles away from Osteen. He and Mary were divorced in 1930 and she lived, with her son, Edward Herschel, at her father's home in Dade County in the 1930 census. His father-in-law had a fruit grove.

Herschel Otis Prideaux
Hi Jeff. I suspect you're right about the birth year. That would make it more in line with the 1900 census. I noticed on his death certificate (see that it also says he was born in 1892 in the town of Osteen. Whoever wrote his obituary was probably using the information off the death certificate.

By the way, I need to remove my memorial for him. I didn't notice it until now that's there another memorial that predates mine at

RE: John & Rebecca Agnew
Thanks, Jeff!
I'm connected to the Agnews by my 3rd great-aunt Mary Stewart who married Thomas Agnew about 1825 in Hamilton County, OH. Thomas Agnew was a witness to the Last Will & Testament of my 3rd great-grandfather John Stewart (Mary's father) in 1825 Hamilton County. This relationship is not 100% verified, but the 1830, 1850-80 US Censuses and Death records of daughters Lucinda E Lester and Tillie Agnew.
My email addy is:
I look forward to hearing from you.
Regards and Blessings, Robert

Thanks Jeff! I made the changes requested. Good luck on the Agnew lines. Years ago I was assisted in my early Todd family research, County Down, Northern Ire via old letters (KY His Soc repository, perhaps Emilie Todd Helms Coll- offhand?) of a Rev. Samuel A Agnew, Bethany, Lee Co Miss- so I think fondly of that surname.

RE: Gillham infants
They are not duplicates. Eliza had 3 boys that died in infancy. The burial records came from the Madison County Cemetery records. Good luck with your research!

Best, Sandra
