Selma: I asked earlier rcs... great
3rdthawkins: I'm thinking they changed their name or used a different one
daviss: how so 3rd
3rdthawkins: not saying that is the only possibility
rcs: I have some data on Mississippi MINORS from near Belzoni Were those the MINORs discussed earlier
3rdthawkins: Minor is the first name rcs, but you may be on to something wb Ingrid
Ingrid_Doweary: Thanks 3rd. Prematurely logged out.
Selma: So can you tell what the letter says rcs
rcs: The sentence pieces that translated were normal -- seeing the boys -- having potatos and salt -- I didn't take time to translate the whole thing Never heard if anyone did on facebook
3rdthawkins: that is interesting how that letter was written, wonder why it was written that way
daviss: It is amazing though . some other symbols in there I did not understand more than just vowels
rcs: Once you start substituting 12345 with aeiou many words seem to make sense
daviss: The granddaughter sure made a wonderful discovery
Selma: Evening alt
Ingrid_Doweary: What was her discovery, Daviss? Hey Alt.
daviss: hello alt!
3rdthawkins: hello alt
alt: hello 3rd, daviss, Ingrid, rcs, & Selma
daviss: she was the one that found the letter amongest her grammys things Ingrid
rcs: I have discovered a new Missouri resource http://www.sos.mo.gov/archives/resources/ordb.asp They have a few county probabte records digitized as well as MO death records and other goodies
daviss: great rcs mabe I can find one of my Mitchells
Ingrid_Doweary: Nice archival website RCS. Thanks.
daviss: not my Mitchell but my daughters
rcs: Missouri Judicial Records This database of circuit and probate court files is currently searchable by name, county and year for Greene County Circuit Court, Jasper County Circuit Court, New Madrid County Probate Court, St. Charles County Circuit Court, and St. Louis Probate Court. These historic probate records offer insight into the lives of Missourians through wills, inventories, settlements, and guardianship records. Circuit court cases provide a wealth of information on everything from the fur trade to the Civil War, steamboats to McCormick Reapers, and agriculture to urbanization.
3rdthawkins: the DC I knew about, but not the rest
rcs: These were new to me
Selma: Thats great rcs...just took a look at the site
3rdthawkins: I live in Jasper Co.
daviss: thanks RCS I will put this in my favs and cruise around tonight
rcs: I was looking for an elusive Maria Long or Cynthia Small
daviss: did seventies sneak out :? did you find them rcs?
rcs: yes no and maybe
rcs: I did find a possible MARIA LONG settling the estate of her husband in 1865 -- but that did not mention a connection to Baptists or Cynthia SMALL tradition says Maria LONG set aside a part of her land so her slaves could have a church
3rdthawkins: hello vkn
rcs: a Deed from 1868 says the first deacons bought the land from Cynthia Small who later that same year married a LONG
vkn: Howdy all Glad to see all y'all
rcs: Long family researchers think Leah LONG donated the land
Selma: Whose oral history is the Maria Long as the benefactor
rcs: Them Baptists! inted in several county histories
Selma: Well we know about all those printed county histories
rcs: James and Leah Long also had slaves ---- one named Pleasant -- right age to be the Pleasant Moore who was a deacon in 1870
Selma: But you have the deed where they "purchased" the property?
rcs: Several LONG brothers came into MO just before 1800 -- got Spanish Land grants and proceeded to marry everybody and repeat the same names Yes -- a transcript at least, explanation being that the slaves could not have deed before 1865 So that has been a rush project this last week. The church wants to invite a LONG descendant to be recognized
alt: Interesting about 1865 rcs..... Weren't there FPOC's in MO, that could have possibly been 'land owners'?
rcs: a few family land for the use of family slaves
alt: but that isn't the case and thisis not an area where FPOC' might have been?
Selma: So who is Cynthia Small before she marries a Long..
rcs: I have a bible page of slave births to post later from a Long descendant
Selma: Myabe they should be inviting a Small descendant
rcs: Cynthia is a mystery right now. SHe was married with children
vkn: the list sounds good rcs
rcs: well -- my current suggestion is to invite a descent of Cynthia Small and her husband Alton LONG --- right Long family if not individual and we know Cynthia was in the loop but can;t figure why
Ingrid_Doweary: Sounds like a good idea, RCS.
Selma: She was married with children when she marries LONG...so Small is not her maiden name
daviss: when is the program rcs?
rcs: November sometime
Ingrid_Doweary: During a November weekend, RCS?
rcs: yep They might make me Baptist
Ingrid_Doweary: The 1st November weekend is a week from today.
rcs: yes indeed
Ingrid_Doweary: Did you want to be a Baptist, RCS?
rcs: I was supposed to work miracles---instead i stirred up questions
daviss: Well I hope you find the documents that you need rcs
Selma: Questions are probably more interesting.. LOL
rcs: Several of us are looking for docments and my friend is working the older church members and deacons for more info
daviss: Are you doing the presentation rcs?
rcs: The only church members I know personally are from MS & Ark
Ingrid_Doweary: Investigations of any kind history or otherwise always stir up questions. :} Isn't that what research is about, RCS?
rcs: At this point, anything is possible....pretty sure I shall at least be invited
daviss: AYWalton not to long ago did a presentation in Nevada I think it was the oldest AA church in Tahoe mabe in all of Nevada vkn how is your group doing?
vkn: Going well keeping me too busy
Selma: Folks..have to bid you all Good Night.. long day and I am sleepy.. Nite All
vkn: When do you leave for TX daviss
daviss: on the 12th vkn
vkn: rcs not seeing you very often
rcs: new job & schedule
daviss: we are driving so that will take about 18 hrs
vkn: ingrid how is the log reading coming along Latest blog is really at the top daviss
Ingrid_Doweary: I'm have trouble with being easily distracted. Must find new reading locations.
Ingrid_Doweary: I now read when I can.
vkn: ahhhhhhh new job huh well congrats rcs lol Ingrid
daviss: I read the logs vkn if that is what you are saying
Ingrid_Doweary: Bus rides are getting to noisy and chaotic for me and at work more non-universtiy patrons are demanding more intervention. I do review the logs though.
vkn: I am glad daviss I meant your blog on voting is super
daviss: oh thanks vkn.
vkn: u b welcome
Ingrid_Doweary: Congrats RCS. I need a more rewarding job. Where's your blog on voting located, Daviss. I'd love to read it. ?
daviss: Obama's speech in Chicago was over the top http://mariahszepher.blogspot.com/ there you go ingrid
Ingrid_Doweary: Yeah, I'm getting behind in my reading. Thanks.
daviss: welcome let us know for sure rcs how everything comes out
Ingrid_Doweary: My husband did attend the "Return to Sanity" Rally today in Wash., DC.
daviss: what was his take
Ingrid_Doweary: He said it was a refreshing experience. There was sevility, the sign were more supportive of our current administration and of real solutions.
daviss: thats good to hear ingrid.
Ingrid_Doweary: The atmosphere was more friendly and the turnout was quite huge. I intend to watch it on CSPAN.
daviss: I am really worried about the McDonnels, Angles, and Millers of the world.
Ingrid_Doweary: You have excellent reason to be. From my husband's observation, much of the attendees at the aforementioned rally were concerned also. His take also was that the tea party movement is a hoax because they are more conservative and supportive of Republican platforms.
Ingrid_Doweary: One of my problems with that particular movement is their claim to comply with the US constitution, but they seem to have a different intrerpretation of the US Constitution.
daviss: my thoughts exactly Ingrid
Ingrid_Doweary: As you may be seen in a clip of O'Donnells's televised debates, many of them are clueless of the actual contents of the US Constitution. Her experience is worse than Palin being unclear on the duties of the US Vice Presidency. Cheney knew but he assumed controversal duties of the VP position.
daviss: great conversation ingrid, but I have to run , You are spot on my friend
Ingrid_Doweary: Been listening to C-SPAN's daily Washington Jrnl program and it is refreshing to hear some callers phoning in more reasonable and logical discussions about the current/historical state of the 3 branches of US government. The role of these 3 branches are al Bye RCS, just to complete the thought, the role of the 3 branches of US govt are also concepts many american voters are unclear about.
rcs: yes indeed
Ingrid_Doweary: Those issues are certainly extremely haunting. Great reasons to urge every American citizen to vote. Done with my soapbox for the evening.
rcs: ok good night!
Ingrid_Doweary: Good nite!
