Cindy Day
Hello Mr Day
I am Cindy Day ggranddaughter of Francis Marion Day ,granddaughter of Raymond Lyhue Marion Day -daughter of Raymond Leon Day . My father came from Oklahoma . I have been doing my family tree for a couple of years now . We have a brick wall where Francis Marion's father is concerned .I have noticed a few similarities between my Francis Marion and the Francis Marion in the Texas Day family tree . I wonder if anyone has thought that they might be the same person . Sometimes it seems that their lives could be merged such as I have no birth certificate or grave marker for my Francis -but both of those exist for the Texas Francis . I have no marriage certificate for Francis and Katherine .But I know by word of mouth they lived together .My Francis is invisible until he is living with someone who calls him grandson . It seems the Texas Francis is also invisible until his teenage years . I have done the DNA but being a female it didn't help much .I am hoping you can tell me if you think I might be on the right path or if I've lost my mind in thinking they might be the same person . Thank you if you have the time to look into this I'd be so grateful .
