I am trying to connect Nancy Isabella Stump to her father Jacob Stump. You have a very detailed history on his memorial. Could you tell me the source of this information? This is for a DAR application.

RE: James Jones (1772-1848)
From Jones families of Va

Richard Jones was the son of Colonel Richard Jones and Sarah Stratton.

Richard Jones was born in 1720. He also was a Militia Colonel, and in 1768 was Sheriff of Amelia County. In 1749 his father conveyed 541 acres to him on the south side of West Creek, adjoining the land he already lived on, joining Reeves line, Daniel Jones, and the Beaver pond of West Creek. He sold 200 acres to Richard Philips in 1767.

His first wife is unknown. His second wife was Elizabeth Batte, and she was the mother of his youngest children.

Mount Pisgah Church Cemetery
Last week, I traveled in search of Mount Pisgah Church Cemetery and found the Church with no cemetery, but I found Clayton Stump Cemetery and Collins Community Cemetery, however, I could not find Mount Pisgah Church Cemetery anywhere. I figure I drove right past the cemetery in Stumptown. Do you have detailed driving directions or GPS Coordinates that you can provide me so I can visit a few of my ancestors. Thank You Kindly.

Thank you for all your work out there! I went to Homestead Manor in Thompsons Station to see about visiting the graves of my 3rd great grandparents, and they didn't even know about a graveyard... said I could come back tomorrow and poke around. Couldn't see it from Google Earth either. You did share that it is at back of property, wondering if you have any other info. Thanks again!

Unable to confirm source for Wales...I may be in error. I did find info that a Dr. Gilbert D. Taylor was a Methodist missionary to the people of color in Franklin and Lawrence counties in Alabama. Was this the same Dr. Taylor as the father of Delia?

Stump Family
I am trying to find information about my family history. I am not 100% sure but some information I have from shows that Michael Stump III was a descendant of mine.

If you have any information on the Stump Family would you mind sharing that with me.

Anne Johnson - Mt. Moriah Cemetery
Her stone is not legible now. I was there yesterday. If you go on and then go to Mt. Moriah - there is a photo of her stone some 8 to 10 years ago.

Thank you for the reply.

Yes, I am checking everything and have found out how often records are incorrect as well as tombstones.
As of toady aI have 77,280 (Seventy-seven thousand two hundred and eighty) names. I have been at this since 1985 when I became disabled. I had to have something to get me out of bed each day

It is by the dedication and good work of those like you that help.

First let me apologize for asking:
Just in case you might be able to help. I understand if you do not care to do so.
I have a dilemma. My aunt married a Sutton and for days I have been trying to straighten out a fact about his (my departed Uncle’s ) kin.

While looking for Sutton links (that is how I ran in the J D Sutton book-which, by the way, in my family files, I have all the data about the book and it is a source citation with all the information—when the source citation is opened it gives all the data.)

Also, before I forget to ask are you a descendant of Benjamin LeMasters-one of my REV WAR ancestors (of 12). My great grandmother links me to the LeMasters and to the Boggs as she was a Boggs.

My problem:
Two Albert Ellison Suttons: (One the nephew of the other)

One Albert Ellison Sutton was the uncle of the other, One was apparently (I say apparently because something is wrong) b. July 1883 an died 8 Oct 1952
Albert Ellison Sutton-son of Sylvester Bell Sutton & Sara Ann Roby married Susan Alice ‘Susie” Barnett-one of their sons was Walter Otis Sutton.
Find-a-grave also has this A. E. Sutton b. 27 Jul 1885 –died 8 Oct 1952 –this death date does not correspond to his death record:

Father Name: Sylvester B. Sutton
Father Birth Place: West Virginia
