Sherry Cantrell
2nd husband of Orilla Sherwood
Hi Gary,
Orilla Sherwood is my 4th great grandmother. She married again after the death of John Bonney to Alpheus Streator. I created a page for him (# 177647964) if you would like to link Orilla to him.
Best regards, Sherry

RE: relatives in common
Hello! Yes Samuel B. Parris married Ruth Bonney and they did have several children. My ancestor was their child, James Paris Sr., who married Elizabeth Graven. Their child that is my ancestor was James Paris Jr. who married Sarah "Sally" Pendleton. Their child that is my ancestor was Pleasant Paris who married Nancy Jane Sam. Their child that is my ancestor was Jesse Fortner Paris who married Sarah Jane Conger. Their child that is my ancestor was Richard Samuel Paris and he married my grandmother's mother, Allie (we believe middle name is Etta) Wood and they had my grandmother, Miriam Wood Paris who married my grandfather, Glynn Booker McMinn. I hope this helps. The reason I don't have all of their siblings is it was starting to get very confusing to have so many names on each branch. It looks like the Parises dropped the second R in Parris to just Paris starting with Samuel B. Parris and Ruth Bonney's children.

relatives in common
Hello! We have relatives in common! Thomas Goodman Bonney and Mary Hunt. They are my 8th great-grandfather and great-grandmother. Their son John Bonney married Elizabeth Bishop and had my 6th great grandmother, Ruth Bonney, who married Samuel Baxter Parris. They is where the Bonney name ends and the Parrises continue on until my grandmother, Miriam Wood Paris who married my grandfather, Glynn Booker McMinn. Anyway, just thought I would mention that. :-)

John Markley
You asked for people to contact you if they were related to John Markley. He was my 1st cousin 4X removed.

The Pumphreys
Do you happen to know anything about Walter Hyer Pumphrey (born OCT 1869 • Washington, District of Columbia, USA)? He was a patent attorney in NYC throughout much of the first half of the 20th century.
Also, do you know anything about his daughter Agnes L Pumphrey (Birth 30 MAR 1893 • Washington, District of Columbia, USA)? She was a stenographer in NYC in 1915, and died sometime after the 1940 federal census. As of the age of 47, she never married.
I just found out where Walter's wife was buried, and created a Find-A-Grave memorial for her. Her name was Cornelia Lovica Osgood, and was my 2d great-aunt. Her Find-A-Grave memorial is #177037348. I have linked it to her parents, and have made a request to link her son, James O Pumphrey's Find-A-Grave memorial to her. As it happens, you maintain his memorial, and you are researching the Pumphrey line, which is why I am asking you.
By the way, James was also an attorney, and never married.
Thank you
Catherine Stevenson Garcia

John G. Fidler
I would like to respectfully ask if you would consider transferring your memorial for John G. Fidler (#47060448) to me (#48871738). I am creating memorials for the Fidler side of my family and he is my 3rd great Uncle. I would like to keep the management for the entire family together. Thank you for your consideration. ~ Ed

You´re very welcome for whatever I put on about your McPeek relative----but I couldn´t find it to save my life.

I thought maybe I had entered a McPeek into Find A Grave, but I don´t believe I did.

Love your dogs. (We have 8 of them).
