You noted in Ned's Memorial a son "Estie Tyree (ca. 1888) by his first wife; however, the 1900 census would suggest he was indeed a child of Ned and Mattie Collins Tyree:

Respectfully submitted,

If you take a look at the original image, I think that you will see that "the 1900 census would suggest he was indeed..." NOT "...a child of...Mattie Collins Tyree," because the original image shows that Mattie had 2 children by the time of the 1900 census and that neither was then living. That census also indicates that Ned and Mattie had been married for 5 years, which, in my opinion would suggest that the son Estie (who is listed as 12 years old), was the son of someone other than Mattie.

I have made the correction. Thanks for letting me know. It is a lot easier to make these corrections if you use the edit tab on the memorial.

RE: Ruth 120147859
Thank you for your kind words of appreciation. I have made the changes you suggested. And It makes sense that the elder Omar would be her father and the younger Omar her brother.

I hope I have it correct this time. Thanks for your input. Let me know if you see other errors.
