vkn: Pollen is a mile deep locally

Daviss: thanks everyone even though we drove through a dust storm, rain and hail plus a crawl that lasted about 20 miles lol

L.T. Lanier: alt, I hadn't made it that far back. I figured I'd have a better chance looking at post 1870 records

Daviss: yeah AYWalton "she" finally let me relax lol

AYWalton: lol

alt: okay L.T. Lanier, just another record(s) to consider, slave schedules for 1850 & 1860.

yatah: i hope if you can help me some of my family history , vicky

Daviss: did you find some new people to add yatah?

L.T. Lanier: thanks for 'listening' alt.

alt: yw L.T. Lanier

yatah: yea on davis side and mintz side as far plently information and wait fot 1940 come out i work on

alt: might also look for family of Jack to see if there are other possible connections to Scott & Mary thru his children L.T. Lanier

yatah: just hard find is quiller and darby is brick , vicky

Daviss: oh yeah yatah the 1940 should give you plenty of clues on your quiller and darby

L.T. Lanier: Mary had four other children in the 1870 household Sarah Thomas, Nellie, and Martha.

vkn: What state yatah

L.T. Lanier: Nellie and Martha were Walkers

yatah: yeah that why i hold that now i need finish on my mom's side family all name is come from south carolina , st matthew vkn

alt: follow those suranmes thru that time period for possible connections L.T. Lanier ,,, ie the community approach we keep talking about.

yatah: i need find of jonathan madison's parents name , vicky

alt: looks like Wanda Sykes is the "big' story this week, huh?

L.T. Lanier: Nellie married a guy named Lewis Cason. Mary had another son John Martin Walker. I think he may have also lived with Scott at one point. in 1910. There were some additions to the family at that time on the censu

yatah: i do have birth date and dead , vicky

L.T. Lanier: I think so alt! 9 generations! Incredible

Daviss: yatah one thing you will have to do when the 1940 census comes out is to go though the census page by page because it will not be indexed...ok

L.T. Lanier: I'm definitely going to make sure that I watch the episode when it airs in May.

Daviss: when was Jonathan born yatah

yatah: april 1910

alt: the NY Times article did mention Paul's work on FPOC and white women having children with enslaved black men.

AYWalton: I saw that, alt. It was a good article.

L.T. Lanier: yes they did. They also mentioned Ira Berlin's work as well.

yatah: and jonathan madison born in ky, lexington, vicky

AYWalton: I see it also mentioned Ms. Cerny the lead genealogist for all of Skip Gates's programs.

vkn: ayw what is claim to fame of Wanda Sykes ?

alt: that's why it is hard for me to get 'shook' up with the FPOC stories.... my entire maternal line follows that pattern so it is most of my research.

yatah: his wife jeanetta hawkins born ky, lexington too

L.T. Lanier: So it would be interesting to see if like the Mozingo family if there are white descendants of the daughter Mary and mother Elizabeth Banks.

AYWalton: She is a popular comendian, and actor vkn.

L.T. Lanier: Do you have 'white' relations alt?

alt: Oh, I'm sure there are L.T. Lanier (Mozingo)

AYWalton: there are lots of families that stem from these families, and I thought I detected a theme that her history was so "rare". It is really not "that" rare.

vkn: OK thanx ayw I was missing the details but seeing many posts

L.T. Lanier: That would interesting to trace those people.

Daviss: Yatah James and Mary his parents

yatah: where you find ?

Daviss: Jonathan Jones [Jonathan Madison] Gender: Male Birth Year: abt 1911 Birthplace: Kentucky Race: Negro (Black) [Black] Home in 1930: Lexington, Fayette, Kentucky View Map Marital Status: Single Relation to Head of House: Son Father's Name: James S Jones Father's Birthplace: Kentucky Mother's Name: Mary Jones Mother's Birthplace: Kentucky

alt: without mentioning surnames I have 'several' familiy lines who have been "white' for a few generations L.T. Lanier

L.T. Lanier: ok

yatah: why jones

Daviss: No idea yatah mavbe it was indexed that way

yatah: i think last name use by mother last name madison ? maybe

Daviss: mabe this James is the step father

yatah: make sense i keep the record in case

vkn: Yatah can you plan to attend conference in Salt Lake in October? AYW Daviss Alt and daviss will be there

yatah: what day ?

L.T. Lanier: WDYTYA didn't come on this past week, right?

vkn: Daviss please post the dates

AYWalton: It was a re-run.

yatah: jonathan madison married to jeanetta hawkins

Daviss: what was the Wanda Sykes info

alt: not sure, I know I didn't watch it last week.

AYWalton: Oh I forgot to mention that I posted an article on Don Cheadle's ancestry on one of my blogs.

Daviss: I was busy mt'ing and did not see what you all said

AYWalton: Melvin inspired me to dig out my data I have had for ages and put it up.

L.T. Lanier: They found Wanda's 9th great grandmother Elizabeth Banks a woman from Scotland.


yatah: i have no idea about jeanetta birth date , davis they has child girl born 1930

vkn: It is on FPOC daviss and I not read ayw gave me a summary

AYWalton: thank you Daviss. where do you live, yatah?

alt: yes AYWalton, NGS is on my schedule, especially 12 May, that's the day keli1 presents.

yatah: i live in orem, utah

AYWalton: ahhh that's good! I never realized you were in utah, yatah!

vkn: lol she is near slc ayw

L.T. Lanier: let me get going. Y'all have a good chat.

AYWalton: that's nice.

yatah: lol about 45 t0 50 min from orem to slc

AYWalton: Do you get to the FHC often?

yatah: no

vkn: I am sure we can help you get an interperter yatah

yatah: i need go there sometime i know fhc has more information

AYWalton: oh wow---the genealogy capital of the world. It is an amazing place.

yatah: vkn , thanks yep

AYWalton: I found Oklahoma records in SLC that I never saw in Oklahoma.

Daviss: thats why I need to go a day or so ahead

AYWalton: that's what I hope to do Daviss!

yatah: that how i found my quiller and darby in fhc in 1998 something after that busy lot after have kids lol

alt: Daviss, Wanda Sykes' story is a little earlier (1683), but there are 'dozens' of similar stories here in Ohio coming out of VA & NC in the late 1700's of white women/black men.

AYWalton: I will spend one full day at the FHC before the conference. Also similar stories in MD.

yatah: you will like there

vkn: Start making your plan now yatah. No excuses

Daviss: 1683 wow alt

yatah: lol

AYWalton: Agnes Callum here in MD also has a 1600s era history.

Daviss: alt its something about you men lol

yatah: i promise my self i must finish that family history before kids get adult lol

AYWalton: She has a free line and an enslaved line that go back into the 1860s. It's never finished, though yatah.

yatah: i hope

AYWalton: Always another line, always another story to tell, always another question to answer.

yatah: true

Daviss: yep

alt: and my LaForce story dates to about 1725-1735, but it is the ususal white man/black woman story of which there are literrally thousands in this area..

AYWalton: The moment you find a new name---the question is---who were their parents? You might choose to stop--but stopping does not make it finished. lol

yatah: talk to me ?

AYWalton: plus some ancestors like mine---keep messing with you to keep going. lol

vkn: lol true indeed ayw it never ends

yatah: yeah ight right

AYWalton: and as long as I enjoy the journey--which I do---I keep following where they lead me to go.

yatah: do jonathan has brother or sis what said ? , vicky

Daviss: I agree with that AYWalton.. I am hoping to at least get a new name sometime or another

AYWalton: quite true, Daviss. and of course one can visit what we already have and study those records for more clues previously missed.

alt: a wonderful journey AYWalton and getting better all of the time with newer data becoming available and online.

AYWalton: I agree alt. Well, I better run, folks. Have a good day everyone.

yatah: good day which one best to search on family history on www?

vkn: alt and daviss do we need to do a special chat to watch the Gates event on the 25th

alt: I was fonna say not so much of what we missed, but the surrounding data that we didin't know about is making review of older materials a "must do" thing.

vkn: do a go to meeting type setting Indeed it does alt

Daviss: ancestry is always the first source yatah I would say

yatah: wait vicky jonathan live in 1930 he has daughter born 1930

alt: not sure vkn, I'm slowly 'backing off' of meetings, readings, etc. not enough time or energy to stay current,..... but that's just for me.
