seventies soulchild: we will?

Selma: But no commentary until the ads.. LOL

seventies soulchild: lol

march1801: yeah 3 years is a while, but i'm sure between funding and gathering and transcribing such info would take quite a while. but hopefully this will really happen unlike our 40acres and a mule.

AYWalton: you mean you can't look at the screen and type at the same time? the best of multi-tasking.

Selma: Great post AY..gonna send to my folks, we have a number of HU grads inour group

AYWalton: you mean the USCT blog post?

Selma: Yes..

AYWalton: oh wonderful! I think so many have no idea who is buried there! I am excited about coming down to document them. I know the entire cemetery is not USCTs so I have to figure out how to approach it when I come down.

Selma: There are two cemeteries there AY..

AYWalton: yes, I just learned that from Drusilla. she went to a service for the founder of Hampton a day or two ago. but I meant even the national cemetery---all are not necessarily USCTs.

daviss: make sure you re-post the chat for the program AYWalton

Selma: There is an index for the big one..which is a National cemetery..and although appears to be on Hampton University Campus is separate...I think

AYWalton: Yes, I tweeted about it as well.

Selma: A couple of years ago I went and got a photo of a USCT for someone on line at the big one.. the staff took the picture

AYWalton: it is on the campus---the national one. The site for the National cemtery tells you to go to the entrance for Hampton and turn right (I think) to get there. is there a second cemetery also with military stones?

Selma: That I don't know..I went there once to see where it was, but didn't get out of the car

AYWalton: well when I come down we will cover all of them. Plus Pleasant Shade Cemetery as well. and Ft. Monroe, and................ :)

Selma: Oh...better get my shoes together..you better come down on Thursday morning

daviss: lol lol lol

AYWalton: ok I'll stop. lol BTW----here is something for everyone who has Facebook! why not put up a photo or just mention the name of an ancestor in honor of Black History Month. Melvin started a great thread.

daviss: lol I already did AYWalton

AYWalton: My nephew did one, and both are catching on like crazy. fantastic, daviss!

Selma: Will check it out

daviss: I am using Nannie Burroughs as my profile pic

3rdthawkins: mee too

march1801: nice to meet you ryan. i'm researching (Simmons, Brown, Saffold, Jordan) of Washington County GA. what surnames &/or location are you researching.

daviss: gotta run folks sorry

Selma: Me too..have a great day

ryan: Sorry March Ryan/Pennington/Penilton/Bailey/Pool West TN (Memphis), North Mississipi and East Arkansas Nice to meet you anyway

march1801: pennington, interesting pennington is one of the surnames of a slaveholding family on my maternal side. they were from fayette county tn around rossville area

ryan: really? OMG?

march1801: yes pennington and oursler

ryan: Fayette county is literally about 3 miles from my Penningtons I know all about the slaveowners too, where they came from

march1801: from what i researched Francis Pennington was the 1st wife of John Oursler. they had two sons which died in the civil war. I was in Fayette Co lst summer researching

ryan: frances was the owner? francis was the owner? or a relative?

march1801: she was the wife of the slave owner John Oursler Frances Pennington Oursler was orginally from Robertson County TN.

ryan: ok - The deal is

march1801: The family moved to Fayette co around 1848.

ryan: Robertson county? hm ok I see check this out I just looked where Robertson county is just north of Nashville My Pennington Slave owners were also from Nashville, and moved to Fayette TN and Marshall MS Rossville is literally about 3 miles to Hudsonville where my Penningtons slave owners were

march1801: omg! matter of fact after Francis Pennington Oursler died her husband John married a woman by the name of Mary Connelly from Marshall Co, MS

ryan: Yes - Same group man (or woman)

march1801: the slaves that John Oursler owned moved from Fayette County to Conway Co Arkansas and the surname changed from Oursler to Osler

ryan: Ah yea, origially those Penningtons came from Sussex Virginia

march1801: do you have a Robert Pennington and Elizabeth (Graves) Pennington as slaveholders from your research?

ryan: The were a part of the Malitias that went into TN around 1800, they settled in Nashville... They left for soutwest TN and north ms, they after the war, went west to ar and tx OMG Yes, Graves was my slaveowner also

march1801: Francis was there daughter omg

ryan: ah, I knew that... I've been working with decendants of Graves Look your folks owned by graves too? You know about the landd owned by Graves right?

march1801: i haven't been able to prove it just yet, but i believed that John Oursler may have recieved his slaves through his marriage to Francis Pennington or his second wife Mary Connelly

ryan: Also - I'm working with someone that has conley ancestors from Marshall county

march1801: no i don't

ryan: Ah, she probably did... now check this out She also had 2 brothers that went to that area, and were just across the ms/tn border from Rossville in Hudsonville where they owned my great great grandfather I have a write up on it

march1801: that is amazing!

ryan: download this http://www.onefast.org/tonyr/pennington/henry_pennington_presentation.pdf

march1801: its downloading

ryan: wow - you're excactly who I've been looking for you probably got a lot of info I could use check this out

march1801: i had been researching the Oursler line to figure out how there slaves were inquired. but nothing ever materialized so i began researching his wives and Francis was the best candidate. we definitly need to exchange contact info.

ryan: did you realize that Graves Pennington owned that land today known as Pennington Bend in Nashville? This is the land that Opryland etc is on. My great great grandfather was born on his farm there

march1801: no i did not

ryan: http://www.gravesfa.org/gen835.htm

march1801: makes me wonder if my gr gr gr grandfather James Oursler was born there too?

ryan: the deal is there was a group of familys that traveled to gether (and married) Pennington/Seal/Conely/Dodson/Donelson to name a few I've seen (moving together)

march1801: have you come across the surname Toldes form Fayette Co TN as well? or Towles

ryan: No, have not seen that one, but also research Marshall county MS and Shelby TB Graves ran a ferry accros the cumberland did you download ?

march1801: yes. i'm trying to read

ryan: sorry Frances Graves (his first wife) where your Frances came from

march1801: she was from Robertson Co, TN I have my Frances (b 17Mar1819) as being the daughter of Robert Pennington and Elizabeth Graves. She married John Oursler bet 1830-1838 in Robertson Co Tn. the had two sonse William Robert Oursler and Richard C. Oursler both died in Civil War at Gettysburg 1863 I haven't been able to pinpoint her date and place of death. but it would have occurred 1840-1848 in either Robertson or Fayette Co TN.

ryan: yea, they were all confederates So what relationship to graves pennington then?

march1801: I 'll have to do more research to see. but i there is a high probabilty that there will be a connection. i'll have to get out my research folder on the Penningtons

ryan: its possible - from about 1845 - about 1880 they were in that area Sam R Oursler Spouse: Mamie Oursler Birth: abt 1894 - Mississippi Residence: 1920 - Memphis Ward 19, Shelby, Tennessee William C Oursler Spouse: Ruth Oursler Birth: abt 1888 - Mississippi Residence: 1920 - Memphis Ward 19, Shelby, Tennessee Maud B Oursler Birth: Apr 1880 - Mississippi Residence: Memphis Ward 13, Shelby, Tennessee

vkn: we had about 12 family members in London to see it all

AYWalton: how wonderful!!!

vkn: AYW yes AYW

AYWalton: that is great!!! does your son Alonzo get to see her when he travels? Or rather does she get to see him?

Ingrid_Doweary: That is definitely a Afro-European triumph.

vkn: lol

AYWalton: quite true!!!

Ingrid_Doweary: What did I say?

vkn: Alonzo just back from Sweden

AYWalton: kind of a sweet African revenge on the slave master. Turning the tables and flipping the script. Call her the Baroness!!!! I love it!!

vkn: lol

AYWalton: a title like Baroness does that kind of make her a bit royal? and do her children become lords & ladies?

Ingrid_Doweary: Wow in two part of the globe, yeah? 44th U.S President and a female Member of Parlliment?

vkn: wayyyyyy to go

Ingrid_Doweary: Did the English monarch bestow the baroness title to her? part=parts

vkn: No it is done by the House of Lorda

Ingrid_Doweary: Ah thanks. Good to know.

AYWalton: and how does one address the Baroness? my lady?

vkn: lol

AYWalton: and how is she referred to? her........what?

vkn: lady king

AYWalton: Ahhh ok.

vkn: how be the research

AYWalton: that works for me!! so when is she coming to America, and when is the party? we will all come and be her AfriGenean court. lol

daviss: lol

vkn: lol lol

Ingrid_Doweary: On which occasion would the US President meet her ladyship-Lady King/

daviss: the research is just be vkn

vkn: LOTS of essence query peeps with no clue to mom or dad

Ingrid_Doweary: On which occasion would the US President meet her ladyship-Lady King?

AYWalton: do we have to curtsy?

vkn: Not knowing Ingrid

AYWalton: do you need help sorting them out, or do you have a system? probably the President would meet her while traveling in Britain. the head of state receives other heads of states.

vkn: yes I do ayw will let you know

AYWalton: so only the Prime Minister would get hte White House State Dinner.

vkn: lol

AYWalton: well let some of us help you with them? perhaps a standard letter acknowledging that we have received the query, and then they can complete some basic info for us. and maybe to decide what to offer. a look up is one thing, and full research---that is different. something to discuss later, perhaps.

vkn: yassum the hardest part is getting them off the phone. They gotta tell somebody blah blah blah of pain

daviss: hmmm I can imagine all the build up inside them

vkn: lots of pain "I met my mother when I was age 12"

AYWalton: oh how sad---that is painful. is there a profile, such as age? Mostly in their 30s, 40s, or older?

vkn: seems to be about 70 AYW

AYWalton: really?

vkn: sooooo nobody to ask

daviss: I guess now I can relate

AYWalton: so the readers who are usually younger, are sharing with their own parents perhaps. wow.

daviss: remember my x's story AY

vkn: seeking mystical half sibs

AYWalton: half sibs? oh my.

vkn: Yes " I may have a sister"

daviss: I was thinking it was rare back in the day but now not so sure

AYWalton: you might want to let them know some kind of way that we perform ancestral searches not present day living people searches.

vkn: Got one from Waco daviss

Ingrid_Doweary: See in my mother's family and my father-in-laws family, the previous spouses passed away. both of them are products of the second marriages.
