Thank you for the helpful information on the HARTWELL confusion.
I was sure I had the correct Ann/Ann E/Anna/Annie, to the correct husbands.

Have a wonderful weekend.

RE: Ida Layer English
Hi again!

Gar sent me a lot of information about several of Ida's sisters and brothers, etc. and I've added information and links. If you'd like any of these transferred, please let me know.

RE: Ida Layer English
Thanks, Dorann!

My friend thinks you are right. He checked the 1860 and 1870 censuses, and they both definitely say 'Christian Layer'. (Sorry I confused the two spellings in my first e-mail!!!). he also said he contacted you directly, so maybe you'll have some information to share!

I've changed the spelling to Layer, and am about to add more links to some of these family members. If you'd like any of these memorials to be transferred to you, I'm happy to do so. Just let me know.

Thanks, again, for your help in clarifying this information. I think that's what makes this resource so great - the voluntary work of so many to centrally locate information about our ancestors and relatives.

Ida Layer English
Hi Dorann,

Thanks for your correction regarding Ida's maiden name. I don't mean to offend you, but I want to make certain that you're sure of this maiden name.

I made the memorial at the request of a friend who is tracing and researching his English ancestors. He's the one who told me her maiden name was Layer. I wrote to him today explaining your correction and he said that her maiden name is clearly written 'Layer' in the marriage record, but other than that he has nothing.

I have seen occasions where the handwritten /S/ looks like an /L/. And given that the cemetery stones say 'Sayer' I can agree with you. But I just want to double check your confidence before I change it....
