khathu: Thanks Selma because I was thinking about going on Friday well i am taking off Friday and Tuesday, so I will plan on going down on tuesday
Selma: It is closed Friday...furlough day..for state employess
3rdthawkins: you mean like when you are doing research on a name you never heard before and then all of a sudden you start seeing that name everywhere vicky???
vicky: yep 3rd same thing
3rdthawkins: yeah, that is funny
khathu: i am at a point in slave research where it is going to be very tedious
3rdthawkins: some names I heard or seen, but never paid attention until now
vicky: I can imagine khathu
khathu: i am trying to locate the original owner of my ancestors
3rdthawkins: like a business with the name Cummins, I have seen that riding by in the car, but I didn't pay attention until it came up in my family tree well, God bless Khathu...........
khathu: I know the Moodys were their last owner, I am trying to figure out how, when and where they acquired them
alt: I was at an Ohio State Genealogy meeting yesterday... They have asked me to present at their conf. next year.. Researching Ohio FPOC 1803-1865.
Selma: and I hope you said YES..alt
alt: ty khathu fo sho Selma
vicky: lol sho nuff alt
khathu: Selma I will be looking to you for advice on this VA line
AmosNY: You should have a lot of material alt since Ohio was not a slave state.
Selma: I'll do what I can Khathu...oops just dropped my mouse
alt: I do AmosNY, been researching Ohio FPOC's for about 15-20 years now.
Selma: Do you know which county the Moody's were coming out of in VA
khathu: Chesterfield County Jameson Moody however was born Henrico County
vicky: lol Fannie Moody from Grimes County Texas is suing my family right now for a right of way thru the Daviss property
AmosNY: Oh my.
khathu: really...i wondered if she is related to the Chesterfield County folks
vicky: dont know khathu but they are all over in Grimes
Selma: Is her property land locked vicky?
khathu: after the Civil War the family with the exception of William L. Moody moved back to Chesterfield
vicky: land locked?
Selma: Meaning she has to cross the Davis property to get to hers
vicky: oh ok she really does not have to but ours is the shortest route to the back of theirs
Selma: One of the families vicky researches NELMS made that migration from VA to Texas..
khathu: Mine migrated from Chesterfield Co. to Freestone Co., TX in 1854
Selma: When did NELMS migrate vicky...I forget
vicky: Minors hooked up in there also Selma
Selma: I think NELMS leaves from Northumberland...I don't have the material in front of me
khathu: have a great day everyone
vicky: sorry Sel, I was reading that info yes its Northumberland I was trying to see when they first appeared in Grimes I think it may have been the late 30's not sure

3rdthawkins: ok Spivey........yes, lots!!!!
vicky: be surprised spivey lol
Spivey: Hmm... I better go check them out then. 'Bye for now.
Selma: Time for me to go .......bye
3rdthawkins: speaking of the forums, for bad for the family who searching for the guy they never seen in a while and he turns up in the SSDI
AmosNY: Bye all!
3rdthawkins: for bad-feel bad bye Amos
vicky: yes for sure 3rd. you never know especially when someone takes off and doesnt tell family where they are going or keep in contact
3rdthawkins: that has to be tough trying to info the family
vicky: lots on unknowns on = of
AYWalton: yes that is sad. I had that happen to me a few years ago. When my mother passed, I contacted a cousin to let her know. Did not get a return call, and never heard from her for months. I later found her name on the SSDI.
vicky: sad for sure..depressing
3rdthawkins: that's what I am afraid of for my grandfather's sisters, especially when whom I contacted in November she's in her 80s, haven't heard from her....heard not to think of the worse, I don't want my last communcation with them be on bad grounds heard-hard
AYWalton: Well, I had better go---working on blog myself. Everyone have a great afternoon.
vicky: ok ay why dont you try calling today while she is on your mind
3rdthawkins: I don't have this one's phone number, but I have emailed a few times in the past, no response.......my grandfather's cousin even called and left a message, but she gets no response.......but these are the same two sisters that are not trying to help anyway
vicky: I see
3rdthawkins: I believe calling her sister who lives in California triggered her to stop responding to me
vicky: oh my!
3rdthawkins: because she was going to seen me a pic of her parents (my great grandparents)
vicky: do you have that sisters number
3rdthawkins: I found it on 411.com, but I'm just not wasting my time, she, as my gf's cousin said, just doens't have a good personality it all has to do with my grandfather their brother
vicky: I was thinking mabe if you called her and told her that you were concerned about the sister and that you wanted to know if she were alright then if she gave you a good answer ask her for the phone number lol see what she says
3rdthawkins: well, I did ask my grandfather's cousin that I talk to if the one in Florida was ok, she told me she didn't get a response from her when calling, but she had already explained they are not really helpful
vicky: get the number from your grand cousin
3rdthawkins: I may, but I just don't want to bother
vicky: you call from time to time mabe she will answer oh ok just a though.
3rdthawkins: yeah, thx
vicky: thought well times up later
3rdthawkins: well, ok then vicky, later alt, turn the lights off on your way out lol
