RE: Stephen Miller
Hi Ann,
Stephen's mother, Nancy Jerusha Beard, was my great grand aunt.
Did Stephen have a sister named Hattie?
I look forward to hearing from you.

I think I got it from a on line funeral home site. 1li will check tomorrow on my computer. Cell phones are not my forte.

Estella Y Mizell
I went over to Riverside Memorial and was escorted to her grave by a cemetery office worker who confirmed that it was Estella's grave. I posted a photo of the spot including a view of her husband's marker on the left. Estella has no marker. How sad. I HATE un-marked graves!

Dear Ann,

I got your email and saw it on my phone and must've somehow deleted it. I don't know how. It disappeared. Would you mind resending it so I can reply? I don't have a lot more info but did want to reply there more than here.

And -- I guess hitting that 'enter' button to space doesn't work. If you know how to delete my empty comment, I wouldn't mind.

Bessie LaDuke
Dear Ann,

I saw where you had Bessie LaDuke transferred to you because you're her great-niece. She was my step-grandma and the only one I ever knew on my dad's side. I was named for my grandma, Florence LaDuke, but she'd died six years before I was born. Grandma Bessie was very kind but I only got to know her the last ten years of her life. We WERE all together for that adventure to California from Minnesota in the 1960s, though -- we lived seven miles from her while out there! My family was my parents along with my twin brother and I at about 16 months (we went out in 1963). My dad had one brother with 7 kids (they added an 8th out there). My grandpa and his wife, Grandma Bessie, came. My aunt's (my dad's sil) family came including HER parents (mom and step-dad). Most eventually made it back to MN -- my uncle's family via Arkansas for several years and they left kids in CA, NV, AR, KY, UT and the youngest two in MN.

I just thought it'd be fun to share her with you! And I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about her earlier life!

Thanks, again!

Sallie Goodson # 148332802
Great Saltkehatchie Cemetery, Ulmer, SC.
This is my great-grandmother and her name is Sarah McMillan Goodson. She and George W. Goodson had one child together, my grandmother, and she told me herself that her mother was a McMillan. My grandmother's obituary, which was written by her children in 1995, states she was a daughter of Sarah McMillan Goodson. Also, on my grandmother's Delayed Birth Certificate Application dated September 14, 1956, she documents that her mother's maiden name was Sarah B. McMillan.

I respect the wonderful research of Sybile Pierce, but Sallie Goodson's maiden name was not Rhoad. Thanks. - Wanda

My mother was buried at Rosewood Funeral Home and Cemetery in Humble, Harris County, Texas, with my father Toby Lewis Martin.
I will notify you if I think of anything else.
Thanks Ann,

RE: Nancy Williams Parrish Peeples
Dear Ann,

Lovely to hear from you. What a puzzle you have. We know that Absolom and Nancy (William) Parrish had three surviving children. Only two are identified so there is a third that might be Hiram. They married in 1811 so undoubtedly had more children that didn't survive. As he's born in 1819, Hiram fits. I have found, in all my reading and researching, no mention of Hiram with parents identified in any publication. I suspect that your best option is a DNA test with the known descendants of Griffin and the other boy, can't remember his name...
I will keep Hiram in mind as I continue my work with the family and will definitely let you know if I find anything, but I think you have already done exhaustive research yourself...
keep in touch,
your probable "cousinette" jaeren
