Nola Foulston
Mary Queen of Scots vs. Bloody Mary
Mary Tudor, daughter of Henry VII was known as Bloody Mary for her attacks on non-catholice clergy. You have incorrectly identified Mary Queen of Scots as the person who ordered his execution.

William Silas Tipper
Hello Darlene,

I believe I have some information that would transfer well into one of your memorials as I believe I have the same individual listed incorrectly (wrong location) and need to delete mine. Plus yours has a great picture!

Yours is # 101834255 William Silas Tipper

The info I have that could be transferred over is:

Birth: Oct. 16, 1853
Death: Mar. 29, 1938

Husband of Sophronia Richardson Tipper. Son of Silas Tipper and Nancy Ann Norwood Tipper. Children: Benjamin Connalway Tipper, Nancy A. Emaline Tipper, Mollie E. Tennessee Tipper, John Wesley Tipper, Moleskia T. Tipper, Myrtle Wlimuth Tipper, and Albert Tipper.

Currently I have it listed under memorial # 7945045

I am happy to delete mine….

Potts family
Hi! I have Potts relation traced back to VA. Ones I've found so far are Sarah (Potts) Bricklesa b1785 whom married Daniel Brickles. Her parents were John and Susannah (Hibben- few different spellings for her maiden). Then John's parents were Jonas and Mary (Heckathorn) Potts. That's all I've gotten so far. Please let me know if there is a connection. Also, if we are related, do you have any birth/ death info on Susannah, Jonas or Mary? Thank you :)

Barnhill Family
Dear Darlene Potts,
Hello!! My name is Tiffany Butler. I'm currently working on my family's genealogy. I noticed on Vachel Bonnie Barnhill (1792-1876)'s find a grave memorial page (# 63002982) that you commented that he was a relative of yours. I'm hoping you can answer some of my questions.
I know on Vachel Bonnie Barnhill's find a grave memorial page it doesn't link his sibling I'm looking for. So, do you know if he had a sibling by the name Benjamin Barnhill (he was born abt. 1790 or 1794 in Greenville, South Carolina and he died about 1864 in maybe Arkansas). Benjamin supposedly married Elizabeth ? and had supposedly 6 children. The 6 children were: 1)Benjamin Jr (1820 in NC-1894 in AR)-he married Francis Dunlap(had supposedly 11 children- I know for sure 1 and that was Absalom Harrison; they were: {1)Absalom Harrison(1867-1942(he married Sarah Viola "Sadie" Herman-had 4 children: [1-Beualh "Bula" (1893-1968)(she married Chester Stone); 2-Clarice "Clara"(1846-1978)(she married Charlie Stanhope); 3-Harry Otis/Ottis(1898-1987)(he married Nellie Maud McNemar); and 4-Edna(1908-1989)(she married Ernest "Lee" Norris-had 7 children)]; 2)Sarah J.(abt. 1856 in TX-?); 3)Alice Levonia(1859-1938)(she married Victor Valley);4)Thomas(abt. 1858 or 1859); 5) Nancy Jane(abt. 1859,1861, or 1862 in AR-?); 6) Mariah Idalia “Daily” or Idalia (1863 in AR or MO-?); 7) Hillard Davis “Davis”(abt. 1863, 1866, or 1865 in MO or AR-?); 8) Josephine Lousia(abt. 1869 or 1870 in AR-?); 9) Bird or Birl(abt.1870 in AR-?); 10)William(abt. 1872 in AR-?); and 11) James Monroe(abt. 1874 in AR-?)}; 2) Mariah(abt. 1823-?); 3)Nancy (abt. 1825-?); 4)Sarah E.(abt. 1832-?); 5)Manerva or Manirva J. (abt. 1836-?); and 6)Thomas (?-?).
I’m trying to figure out if my information is correct. I also have questions on the parents and grandparents of this family. But, I’ll ask those questions in another email.
I tried emailing you, but it wouldn't go through. Please email me back at
I can’t wait to hear from you soon, and learn more about this family (hopefully anyway-right now I’m super confused). .
Thank you for your time,
Tiffany Butler

8/20/16 Darlene: Trish Smith here
I believe we talk to each other on FB, but I haven't been on much for the past 2-3 mos.

My mother: Nora Eudora (Layne) Williams
My maternal grandmother: Gracie Enon Potts
Gracie's parents: William Nicholas & Ola Eudora (Luckett) Potts
William Nicholas Potts parents: Miles & Missouri Zuella (Lavender) Potts
Miles Potts' parents: John Calvin & Martha Patsy (Humphrey) Potts
John Calvin Potts parents: James Potts & Susannah (Absher) Potts, Sr.

I did the "Origins" test, the one they advertised heavily for this past year (2015). So I am finding out a little more info. from that.

On my mother's father's side, Brown James Layne, I did a blood test on brother, my Uncle BJ, the oldest & only living male of her father's "Layne" side. The Layne's go back to Hugh Brogan, Ireland (I think the 1600's or 1700's, I have so many family trees I'm researching I cannot remember it all exactly).

I have a couple of pics of William Nicholas & Ola Eudora (Luckett) Potts, none of his brothers or sisters. None of Ola's family that I know of.

I have no pics of John Calvin or Martha Patsy (Humphrey) Potts.

I have no pics of James Potts Sr or wife Martha Patsy (Humprhey) Potts.

I'd love to see ANY pics that you MAY have of any of these fore fathers.

My home phone is: 615) 230-7077; if you'd ever like to talk. I do NOT KNOW family history as well as my mother did as she was born 12/5/1921 & grew up with more contact with her grandparents: William Nicholas & Ola Eudora (Luckett) Potts.

Perhaps we'll "chat" on FB again. I'm not on much. Too time consuming. I did make up a FB page for the "Potts Family Cemetery".

Robert Love Taylor Jr
Susan Taylor Memorial 114966875
Darlene, Susan is my 13x great grandmother. You have correctly identified John Taylor as her spouse and Rowland Taylor as her son. However, you have also identified Rowland as an additional spouse. Obviously her son Rowland can not also be her spouse. Please make this correction. I tried to send this message to your AOL e-mail but apparently your AOL account is no longer valid.

Thank you for your contributions to Find A Grave,

Robert Taylor, 47597450

Re: George Brown, Sr.

Please check the death date of George, Sr. January 1589 is before his sons were born.

Thanks, Gay Hockman
