RE: Teddlie, Porter, Shelton, Covey, Brown
Hi Mary,

I don't know about Native American ancestry on y'all's side. I had always heard that about myself but when I did the Ancestry DNA test, nope, none. I think we'll do the DNA with Polly or her brother, Dwight, and see what shows.

Hope all is well with y'all.

Hi Mary Pat,
Please tell me what you would actually like to accomplish. Right now there are duplicate memorial pages in the cemetery for Linda, which is not allowed. We need to delete one of them. The memorial page I added for her has a grave photo attached. I will gladly transfer mine to you if that's the one you choose to keep. Or I will be happy to move my grave photo over to your page and delete my page, if that's what you would like. Just let me know how you prefer to handle this. :)

Mary Brown
Virginia Covey Shelton
Hello! My name is Mary Brown, & I believe we are distant cousins via your grandmother Virginia Shelton's family. If my research is correct, I believe our most common recent ancestor to be William Thurman Stroud. He was my 3g grandfather, as well as being your grandmother's 2g grandfather. I believe this would make him your 4g grandfather. My line going back is Mary Brown - Claud B Brown - Mary L Stroud - Herman Henley Stroud - Ison Jackson Stroud - Wm Thurman Stroud. Again, if my research is correct, your grandmother's line going back would be Virginia Covey Shelton - Carrie Farr Brown - Mary Jane Hines - Martha Ann Stroud - Wm Thurman Stroud.

By the way, I saw the note you left on your grandmother's profile here on findagrave. You have my sympathy - I miss mine, too.

I would love to "meet" & perhaps be able to help each other fill in a few holes in our respective trees.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

Mary Brown
Marietta, GA

William Marion Griffin family
The Francis Marion Griffin #107304613, you are showing as William's son, was actually his brother.

William's BROTHER was Francis Marion Griffin 1839-1911. #107304613
William's SON was Francis Marion Griffin 1875-1947. #46606782

I know it gets confusing when families give the same name to more than one person. The Griffin family has several of those. Please research and make the necessary correction. Thank you.

Errors carrying forward
Francis Marion Griffin born in 1939 could not possibly be the son of the William Marion Griffin born in 1844 as you have listed in eh memorial you created. There is already a correct memorial for F. M. Griffin. Please correct your error as it is carrying forward incorrectly on all the Griffin family it is associated with or delete your duplicate memorial. Please see # 46606782. Thank you.

I think a duplication has occurred. William Marion Griffin only had one son named Francis Marion Griffin. Not two with the same name as shown. Please check your Griffin's. Thank you.

Hi Mary Pat,
Please contact me about your memorial page for Linda Marie Greif.

Better view
Do you possibly have a document that is easier to read that you can post instead of the civil war posting you added to William Marion Griffin #67671909 ? Or can you enlarge it? Several of us can't read it. Thanks.

Scott Warner
Ferschweiler / Greif
Hello Mary Pat,
It would appear we're distant cousins on the Ferschweiler side. I like what you've done here. I met Sue (Greif) Alskog some years back and we were able to connect our two trees. You can go to my profile and write direct if you'd want to work on filling in any of the blanks.

Grand parents request
Is your Grand parents Clarence and Ethel Shelton?
I'd be glad to transfer these to you if you let me know for sure that these are your grand parents.
It works easier if you go to your grand parents memorials and send me a transfer request. Also there some other Sheltons, what about them?
