Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband is truly sorry now that he harped about me learning the computer! Thank goodness he did, as I've been able to find relatives on all sides of my family as well as my husbands going back many generations. Have found many relatives still living who have provided photos of people I never met. Also discovered that, on both sides, farming was their livelyhood. Now I know why I and my siblings "love the earth".
Currently looking for info and/or photos of:
Pelkey -- McChesney -- Courtney -- Morfogenis -- Allen -- Kelly

RE: Truman Pelkey #135356770
On Truman's memorial click on the edit just behind Family Links.
Then click on the line Add more spouses at the bottom of the page.
The next drop down box allows you to add up to 5 spouses. Add the findagrave memorial number of the wife to the first open box.
If you know and add the years of marriage to each spouse, I think the program will then list them chronologically on Truman's memorial.

RE: Anna Budka Kun & Rev. Francis Kun
Dave transferred Anna to you but he had already transferred her husband to another member who'd requested it previously. Apparently she had some information to add to his bio. You could contact her if you'd like. Good luck!

RE: Anna Budka Kun & Rev. Francis Kun
You're very welcome...if you'd like these memorials transferred to you just let us know. We were merely visiting the cemetery the day we took photos and have no ties to the families there.

RE: Malinda Allen
I received this message from Annalyn Allen in August you know her?....I dabble in genealogy infrequently!'s the message.....Susie was my great-great-grandmother's sister. My great-great-grandmother was the oldest in the family...her name was Nancy Elizabeth Allen Lovett....

Hi Kim!

Yay! I am so excited to finally find another Allen relative! Are we cousins? I also correspond with Wilma Allen of Enterprise, Ms area. Her husband's grandfather lived on my pop's "George Washington Allen" farm. His name was "William Edward Allen." She & I have been unsuccessful in locating any other of our Allen relatives. Susan Allen (my daddy's gma) was the daughter of Richard C(Coleman?) Allen and Malinda Whittle. I believe his father was a Jacob Allen and his father was Jesse Allen or vise versa. Malinda connects to the Lovett line. I do not recognize the other names you listed. The "old spinsters" Mitt, Docia, Beuna Vista... are my great grandmother (Susan Allen's) sisters. We know little about them. Daddy has Alzhiemers now & remembers nothing but the farm. We should share info. I am from Mississippi, but live in California now. I am a teacher out here. School just started & I'm CRAZY busy, but I'll email you as soon as I have my first break. Thank you SO much for contacting me! Please keep in touch.

God Bless,

Annalyn Allen

RE: Emma D. McChesney
Hum------ Ancestry as you most likely know has her with that maiden name but lists a father under a different name maybe an orphaned child or out of wed lock or some one just got desperate and added parents to crash a brick wall witch happens all to much. Fathers name looks a little made up. Jarrott
