Margaret Hutchinson Kelley #32167493
As you created this memorial in 2008, I'm wondering if you have any sources for the "Hutchinson" maiden name. I've been in contact with a library in Tennessee and they indicate that her maiden name is Snapp, but I can find no confirmation either way. I'm wondering where you got your information as it would be very helpful to confirm her maiden name.

Thank you!!!

Houston Research
I understand you have done a lot of research on the Houston name. I am trying to document the parents of Jane/Jean Houston who married Daniel Booth. It has been suggested that she was the daughter of James Houston and Hannah (maiden name unknown, maybe Linn) based on a land grant issued to Daniel Booth deceased and his children. See Find A Grave Memorial# 75987662. Would you have any info on this family?

RE: John Robinson #32188892
I think Goodspeed's books were basically done from interviews with the people that he did the bio's on at the time.

Please add to his bio:
John Robinson, the maternal grandfather of subject, was a native of
Ireland, and came to the United States when young. He settled in
St. Francois County, Mo., at quite an early date, followed farming,
and finally died in Washington County, where he had moved. Source: Goodspeed's 1889 History of Dent Co., MO.

I totally understand! If you ever decide to quit managing them, please keep us in mind! We are just glad that someone who cares about them are managing them!

John Patrick Kelley, Sr.
Hi, Dan. As you created this memorial back in 2008, I'm hoping you can help me. John Kelley is my 4th Great Grandfather. I'm wondering if you have any sources for "Patrick" as his middle name? None of the records of marriage, census, etc. show "Patrick". Many people are saying that Patrick Hendrix Kelley is his father's name, but I have no definite proof. Anything you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
