RE: Arizona Vest
You are welcome. I am currently looking into here sister, Martha Isabella Vest and her husband Alfred Nathan Burns. Some of the connections appear to be off on Find a Grave and at Family Search. The reason is very interesting. There was a Martha Jane Vest who married a Alfred Alex (or Alexander Burns). The two Marthas were second cousins and the similarity of the names of them and their spouses seems to have gotten things all mixed up. I am working through the relationships, but I thought you might be interested.

RE: Vest Ancestry
I am not descended from them, although I am related to Henry through George Washington Vest (1757-1799). George was my fourth great grandfather and Henry's grandfather.

Lucinda Watson Basinger
was Nathan Watson her brother?
she was living next to him in the 1860 Blount Co. Ala Census. He had a daughter named Lucinda and there were only a few years difference in his age and Lucinda Basinger. do you know who her siblings were or who her parents were? also I've seen on Ancestry where she was the mother of Eli Basinger but if the dates are correct he was born several years before her marriage to Henry and she would have been only 11 yrs old... Was Eli the son of Henry by a first marriage?

How neat! Was that the July/Aug copy? I want to order a copy and I want to get the right one! I really didn't think the article would be published because I didn't scan the photo in high resolution when I had access to it. Maureen Taylor wanted a higher resolution than I had sent her.

So,are you a descendant of Thomas Harry? I have a Kessler family tree on with quite a lot of Burns' info. I live within 30-40 miles of his Botetourt Co. lands. So glad you contaeted me. - Judy T

RE: William Morris Baker
thanks for your patience, as I've been out of town.

paste this website:

and you will see herobituary on page 17.

That makes it clear to me, almost, that I only showed his grave since I took the picture on New Year's Eve 2011 and she was still living (and had no death date.)

I would suggest you add her memorial, link them together, and do a photo request so then the volunteer will have a clue from the picture where it's located.

Mary Emily (Morris) Murphy
I'll need more verification before I change the place of birth for Mary Emily (Morris) Murphy. On the death certificate of her son, it shows that she was born in Liberal, Seward Co., KS. On the 1920 census, she says she was born in Kansas. It may be correct as is.

Genealogy of your family

You are one of several persons on Find A Grave that I run into regularly when I research in Carroll County. I had wondered if we were related. I hope you do genealogy as well as Find A Grave. If you do, would you share what you have collected on genealogy of Thomas Williams & Hannah Pinson both down to you and then back in time? Maybe one of us can help the other fill in gaps.

I have over 13000 dead relatives for my husband and me that I would be able to share as well. My private email is: I send a gedcom file if that works for you.
