Zachariah and Francis Westfall
I notice that the picture you uploaded in 2014 for Zachariah Westfall (1810-1877) # 132756466 is the same picture that is being used for his son Francis Smith Westfall (1848-1923) # 48135935 which was uploaded in 2010.

Do you know which one is correct?

Elia. Taylor Pace Wallis
This lady is my 3grm(?) grandmother by her first husband, B M pace. I have researched Pace extensively and have good records proving both marriages, etc., until the time they moved to TX about 1857. Have never searched the Wallis family, though, and am pleased to know that I can honor her if I ever to that area, where my mother was brought. Bm was my mother's 2gr gf and they all settled in Hawkins area.

Jessie Tate Wallis - month-of-birth

Working on my family tree, noticed apparent typo in Jessie's MONTH-of-birth. Shows as January at first line but is correctly noted to have been in July in wording. Just to verify this, I enlarged the marker picture over 200% and the month shows "July" in full (the "l" is hardest to see).

RE: Abilina--Evelina-Abby Carnline
Abilina's Birthdate may be wrong. All of my information comes from my Grandmother Abilina's granddaughter not just census reports. When grandmothers mother Emily Ford passed away it was her Uncle Mit that she lived with for a while and she was very close with both Milton Ford Abilinas oldest son that told the family that Abilina was born in Alabama. We have a lot of written accounts left by Delfina and Milton but only word of mouth left by my Grandmother. As to her date of birth that was in Grandmothers bible but can anyone be sure of her exact birthdate because in those days nothing that was written or passed down or put in Census in positively 100% sure.

Since Milton Ford was her oldest son by any marriage I will keep my files that say she was born in Alabama I have no problem with any date given of her birth and I have seen no birth certificate so I guess we will just have a difference of opinion. I am not saying you are wrong just we have different sources.

Abilina--Evelina-Abby Carnline
Hello my name is John Crager and Evelina Carnline Ford is my 3rd great grandmother. She was married to Tom William Ford and their daughter Emily Ford was my Grandmothers mother. I believe that you have both her birthdate and place of birth wrong. In the 1850 Monroe Co, Alabama it had her being 9 years old and being born in Alabama in the 1860 Louisiana Census she was married to William Ford ( He was called Tom by his children) my ancestor and said she was 18 and born in Mississippi. Daniel Carnline her father was born in South Carolina. 1n the 1870 Census she was widowed and living with her parents in Texas. I know what her tombstone says but according to the early census she was born in Alabama or Mississippi and she was born either in 1841 or 1842. If I had your e-mail address I would mail you the census for here in 1850-60 and 1870. Thank you

Wallis/Wallace family connection
Hi, I see that you have done extensive research on the Wallis family from Chester county, SC. I am very curious to know if you have come across an 'Asa Wallis' in your research?

Asa Wallis was born in 1789 in South Carolina and married Sarah (?) in Chester County in 1808. His grandson (my 2nd great grandfather), Martin L. Wallace (1866 - 1954) was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and passed away in Tyler, Smith, Texas (same area as your Wallis family).

RE: Veturia Delilah
Their marriage record can be found by doing a simple search on the site.

Her name on those records shows "Roberts" - you have it as "Robbins" I believe. I cannot vouch for which spelling is accurate. I just know what it was transcribed as being.

Name: W. J. Tiner
Spouse's Name: Delida Roberts
Event Date: 28 Jul 1897
Event Place: Angelina, Texas

And if you look at them in the 1910 census the marriage date fits, as they say this is the 2nd marriage for them both, and they have been married 12 yrs at time census was taken.

RE: James Mark Smith
C: Thanks, I have recently published a listing of the Confederate Soldiers who died in Nashville during the war and the majority were originally buried in Nashville City Cemetery very near the Federal Soldiers who died there. In 1866 the Federal Soldiers were disinterred and reburied in the new National Cemetery away from downtown (at that time).

The Confederates were later taken up and reburied in a Mass Grave called Confederate Circle in Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Nashville, Tn. The reason I asked is that I notice his wife was from Georgia and died in Alabama. Thus, possibly he was mis-identified as a Federal Soldier, unit unknown, and was reburied in the National Cemetery by mistake instead of resting with his fellow CSA soldiers. During my research I found that at lease 3 dozen or more CSA soldiers were thus mis-identified and reburied in the Nat'l. Cemetery. It seemed that the workmen who were hired to dig up and rebury the Federal Dead were being paid by the body, thus the more taken from City Cemetery to the National Cemetery, the more they were paid.
Thank you for your reply and if I uncover any additional information, I will contact you, if you wish. Thanks, Tim

I am the oldest sister to Helen; John ; Margaret; Ray & Susan. My name is Dianna Burran Wellman. We had the same father, different mothers.
You contacted my once before for the transfer of John Leavings. I just realized we had contacted each other before I found out you had added the memorial page for Bernice.

Amelia Taylor
Let's see if I can get my message done before I accidentally send it again.

You indicate that Elizabeth Taylor Pace Wallis lived with her sister, Amelia Taylor Watts and family after her parents John and Amelia died. Do you have additional information on Amelia and her family?

John and Amelia Dora Holby Stafford are my gggg grandparents as well. Their son, Jesse Taylor, is my ggg grandfather. Jesse was born 8 May 1804 in Jones County Georgia and died 1 July 1855 at his plantation, Emauhee, Talladega(?) County, Alabama. Benjamin Franklin Taylor was my gg grandfather. Albert Malone Taylor was my great grandfather. Alton Wayne Taylor was my grandfather. Bettye Lou Taylor Jones is my mother.

I have that John's parents are Joseph Taylor and Mary Powell. Joseph was born 1730 in the Bertie District, Northhampton, North Carolina and died in 1785 in Halifax County, North Carolina. Mary was born about 1735 in Halifax County, North Carolina and died in 1774.

For Joseph's parents I have Robert Taylor III and Mary Ann Hudson. Robert Taylor III was born about 1688 in Old Rappahannock County, Virgina and died about 1758 in Edgecombe County, North Carolina. Mary was born about 1705 in Essex County, Virginia and died after September 1758 near Halifaz County, Virginia.

Mary Powell's parents are Solomon Powell and Rebecca (UNK). I have no further information on them.

Mary Ann Hudson's parents are William Hudson born about 1680 and Judith Billington born about 1685.

Robert Taylor III's parents are Robert Taylor Jr and Laureney or Luraney Hudson. Robert Taylor Jr was born about 1660 in maybe Virginia and died in Warsaw County, Virginia on 7 Sep 1699. Lauraney Hudson was born about 1667 maybe in Virginia and died about 1688 maybe in Virginia.

Robert Taylor Jr's father is Robert Taylor Sr born in 1628 in London, Middlesex, England.

Robert Taylor Sr's father was John Taylor born about 1610 in England.

Does this information sound about correct to you?

My e-mail address is
My phone number is 214-755-9784.

I look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Ethel Hall
So she's your husbands aunt .....
Since it you, I will transfer her, although I don't have to since she is out of the 4 generation guideline.

There was a time when I'd do "inter-family" transfers but it got complicated and I began to see why Administration has the 4 generation rule. Thus why its rare that I do them anymore. I will be happy to add, update, correct, or link any distant names you may have in the future.
