My Ancestors Lived Here
RE: Parks
Good morning,

Harriot/Harriet Parks Chilcote (1810-1890 Maryland) is my 3rd great-grandmother. I'm very interested in finding more about the Parks family involved in the mill business in Tennessee and Alabama before the Civil War . Do you have any information on this branch?

I'm happy to share what I have. I'm getting ready for a business trip that will take me out of town until the beginning of July, so I will have only limited records. Please let me know if there is anyone specific you are interested in finding.

Best regards,

Victoria Kinnear

Norwood family information
Hello -
I enjoyed reading your posts and wanted to contact you about the Norwood family. Henry Mangum Norwood and Lucy Solomon Norwood of Wake County NC were my great-grandparents. My grandmother was their daughter, Lucy Anne Norwood Griffis. Her sisters, Zelma and Bess were my great aunts.

My mother, Della Mildred Griffis McCullers, is 94 years old and remembers her grandfather very well. She said he was called "Mr Tom" by everyone. If there's any information about our branch of the Norwood family that would be helpful to you, please feel free to contact me and I'll see if mother remembers.

RE: Norwood Road & History
Hello Dyanna,

Thanks for letting me know you made the connection with the Norwood's and Norwood road.

Yes, that road was named for our family. My mother was born a Byrum and married a Blackmon. The gravestone you took the picture of were her grandparents. Her mother was Zelma Norwood.

The Norwood's and the Byrum's owned a large part of Wake County. I'm sure Henry and Lucy Norwood were big supporters of Bayleaf Baptist church as were my parents. For whatever reason, mother never told us her grandparents were buried there or what their history was with the church.

If I ever get back to Raleigh, I'm going to go out to Bayleaf and see what they have on families and church history. I would like to plan a trip but I'm sick a lot and travel is hard for me. However, all the Byrum and Norwood history is in Raleigh.

Take care and once again, how nice of you to think of me.

Hi DyAnna, I just wanted to say think you for putting up the photo for Christine Spurlin. I hadn't known her birth date or maiden name until I saw the photo. I was able to add that info. Thanks!

Henry and Lucy Norwood - Bayleaf Cemetery
Thank you so much for taking the time to go out to Bayleaf Cemetery and taking pictures of the grave stone of Henry and Lucy Norwood. They were my mother's grandparents.

I am delighted to have these pictures to add to our family history files.
