ProfessorDru: I was just telling 3rd that I just found the marriage date of my Uncle Andy B.
Seventies Soulchild: ok the uncle who passed away in LI? I was browsing through a couple of sites this AM
3rdthawkins: NYC L directed you to that?
ProfessorDru: yes, this was his first marriage. Now I plan to order the marriage license yes 3rd
3rdthawkins: as I said, that's where I found my gr gm in the death index but nothing for a marriage rec between her and my gr gf
ProfessorDru: Many libraries have some records or indexes online.
Seventies Soulchild: So he was married in NY, ProfessorDru

Spivey: Good afternoon everyone.
Seventies Soulchild: hi Spivey
Spivey: Seventies Soulchild, you live in New York?
Seventies Soulchild: Yes
Spivey: Did you every hear about the War of 1812 cemetery in upstate New York?
ProfessorDru: hello spivey
Seventies Soulchild: No I hadn't heard of it. What city or county is it located in?
Spivey: Hi ProfessorDru.
Seventies Soulchild: heyyyy vicky! lol
Spivey: Let me get the URL Seventies Soulchild.
ProfessorDru: hello vicky
Spivey: Hello, Miss vicky!!
3rdthawkins: hello vicky
vicky: any research news bust wide open while I was sleeping :?
3rdthawkins: Pro Dru had some good news concerning her uncle
Spivey: That's the URL Seventies Soulchild.
Seventies Soulchild: um vicky how do retired folks 'oversleep'??? lol thanks Spivey
3rdthawkins: you get tired over and over again...hence RE-tired :}
vicky: lol lol easy seventies easy!
Spivey: I found the facts of the cemetery interesting, Seventies Soulchild. I think everyone will.
Seventies Soulchild: No you said it like you had somewhere to go or something to do.. lol
ProfessorDru: yes I found Uncle Andy B's marriage date online on the site of the New York Public Library
Seventies Soulchild: Erie county is up near Ohio Spivey... way far West NY State
vicky: heyy I got business sometimes
Seventies Soulchild: I could get sassy here, but I'ma keep my mouth SHUT! lol
vicky: thats great professorDru lol @ seventies
Spivey: The fact I find interesting, Seventies Soulchild, is that of the 200 soldiers buried there only about 20 were from New York. Someone may find a lost ancestor's burial there. They were from about 5 different states.
vicky: did you ever get up to the archives prof dru
Seventies Soulchild: Right that's interesting indeed.
3rdthawkins: I'm wondering where in the world my great grandparents got married.......and this is staring to be a trend, cause I have the same problem with my great grandparents on my mother side
ProfessorDru: not yet, vicky plan to go the week of June 21st.
Seventies Soulchild: You know I think I saw this location, don't laugh, in a haunted places book.
ProfessorDru: I gotta run now. Bye
3rdthawkins: bye Dru
Seventies Soulchild: bye prof dru
Spivey: The cemetery, Seventies Soulchild? Oh my goodness!
3rdthawkins: hello Selma
Seventies Soulchild: Yes... a lot of those places are historical locations that people claim are haunted. A good side reference for those who are or may be looking. They keep good records at those locations about their histories.
Selma: Good Friday Afternoon lunchbunchers
Seventies Soulchild: Like the William Johnson house in Natchez is supposed to be haunted.
vicky: have you all ever thought you were not alone or seen something wisk by you and there was no one there :?
Seventies Soulchild: Nope..
vicky: hello Selma!
3rdthawkins: little tiny flying bugs, but nothing else
Spivey: Hmmm. Maybe I should use sites like that, Seventies Soulchild. Have any URLs?
vicky: but you saw those bugs 3rd lol lol
Seventies Soulchild: Its been so long since I've been on those sites... let me see if I can bring one up. brb
Selma: Vicky, where is alt today?
Seventies Soulchild: http://www.prairieghosts.com/mosthaunted.html Now I did go to the Myrtles Plantation since its on the way to my grandfather's place about 4 yrs ago...
Spivey: It is interesting to note that , of the 205 soldiers buried there, only 12 were from New York State. Others, infantrymen and artillerymen, were from New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia North Carolina, Ohio, and Kentucky.
vicky: no idea Selma.. This may be his going to the doctor check up day
Spivey: Thanks, Seventies Soulchild.
Seventies Soulchild: This one is better Spivey http://theshadowlands.net/places/
Spivey: Alt isn't here. Wonder if he would be interested in that 1812 graveyard site since he researches in Ohio.
Seventies Soulchild: I wonder why they put the cemetery so far upstate though? Maybe the Brits were attacking from Canada All I know about the War of 1812 is that they burned down the White House, supposedly It was 'brick' but they had to rebuild and paint it white... lol
Spivey: lol I didn't remember which war that was Seventies Soulchild.
Seventies Soulchild: I think that's a load of crock
Spivey: I didn't think it was brick, at least at the time it was burned down.
Seventies Soulchild: Now I'm going to have to locate the 1812 vets buried near me.
vicky: the rare photo that was found in NC was really intriguing. That one boy on the right sure resembles my Daviss/Davis folks
Seventies Soulchild: ok. you read the article? Did you see the bill of sale?
vicky: yes I did
Seventies Soulchild: I thought that was interesting that he took the photo of the boys. . . maybe it was for some kind of insurance
vicky: dunno even the tree in the background looked old
Seventies Soulchild: Whoever that collector is does a h3ll of a job finding the artifacts.
vicky: money talks seventies
Seventies Soulchild: Well you have to find the stuff first ms vicky
Spivey: Lots of slave owners took photos of their slaves, Seventies Soulchild. Maybe just because or, like you said, maybe for insurance purposes. Insurance doesn't sound likely though because I don't think photos would have been sufficient proof of ownership.
vicky: people like that have there ways seventies. There are even underground places to acquire stolen artifacts, paintings etc not that that was the case here
Seventies Soulchild: Yep... last year I was saying that Christie's and Sotheby's love to come to the Beverly (district) where my mom was raised looking for artifacts.
vicky: look at Baker who has those wonderful pics of his ancestors
Seventies Soulchild: it is one of the most rural locations in that part of MS But there are about 5 plantations within a 50 mile radius Not to include Natchez Who's Baker?
vicky: He (Baker) sent me a pic of one that was given to him but was to late to put in his book
Seventies Soulchild: ah okay
ryan: Hi all Long time no speak, just stopping by to check on y'all
Selma: Afternoon ryan
Seventies Soulchild: Where are you in your research?
ryan: kinda in a lull, summer is usually slower, I got full steam ahead fall winter
3rdthawkins: anymore slave research ryan?
vicky: John Baker.. He wrote The Washingtons Of Wessingtons Spivey
ryan: so, not much has changed since last time we talked 70's
vicky: heyyy ryan
3rdthawkins: ok ryan
ryan: hey vicky
Seventies Soulchild: Yep I hear ya ryan. I'm busy thinking about vacay... lol
3rdthawkins: vicky would you know if John Baker could be a descendant of John Baker Scott?
ryan: cool, going somewhere special 70's? Mississippi maybe ?
vicky: ryan in your travels if you come across any Miss Zephyrs let me know no idea 3rd
ryan: Zephrs, location ?
Seventies Soulchild: I should, but I don't know... haven't gotten my airline tickets yet If I do it will truly be a last moment decision Sad right... lol
ryan: plans to go elsewhere?
vicky: all I know is Ms ryan lol
Seventies Soulchild: My BFF hubby is in basra, Iraq soooo thinking about going on vacay with her to support her thru this tough time
ryan: Ok Vicky, got it.. I will keep an eye out.. time frame?
vicky: just like NC and Al, all I know is the states no counties late 1800's to early 19's where is she living seventies thanks ryan, ya never know NY
Seventies Soulchild: oh yes... at WP
ryan: np vicky (thats why we're here)
vicky: oh ok, I was thinking H-Town indeed ryan
ryan: have you checked the familysearch (pilot search) ?
Seventies Soulchild: I should go to MS, huh?
vicky: oh yeah, in fact thats is where I found my first Zepher. It seems my ggggrandfathers daughter Lydia married a Zepher/Zephyr the only reason I saw that was because my mother is names zepher and I was curious I was in total shock when I saw the name of her father and the informant was my grandfather
ryan: There is a town called Zephyr in Copiah county
vicky: I think this Lydia was the first child of my ggggrand because the mother's name was not inc She was born in 1851 or 2 so it was too early for a marrriage lic in Tx
Seventies Soulchild: Alright... talk to you all later this weekend
vicky: bye seventies
ryan: later 70s
3rdthawkins: supposedly TX marr. go back to 1840 on the pilot site but not sure if it will include blacks/slaves I would love to see if there will be a marr rec for my grgrgr grandparents Ed and Rosetta Hughes they "married" in the 1860s
ryan: Vicky, I'm sure you've seen these but its worth a shot http://pilot.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#placeId=54&alivePlaceLoc1=Mississippi%2C%20United%20States&p=recordResults&surname=Zephyr&searchType=close
3rdthawkins: I wonder if familysearch will update TX marr. I would suspect so because the recs suppose to go up to 1973 and they barely have some for 1930s
vicky: yes ryan, thats where I got the Lydia you see there she is my gggaunt
ryan: ok.. (gotta catch up)
vicky: I talked to someone on the phone who is a Minor and asked her if that Ella was in her line
ryan: Clue - Isom is a very common surname name in my area around Marshall county The other clue, I know the white folks usually named their sons the surname of the mothers maiden name a lot so, Isom could have been the surname of his mother
vicky: I am still trying to get a hit on them. ok thx ryan Marshall County and what was that other one
ryan: another clue - Many of the folks from Marshall county, and north MS migrated to TX late 1800s
3rdthawkins: my step-grandfather's grandmother was Henrietta Isom, they lived in TN
ryan: Copiah Excactly, Isom, near the MS border ?
Selma: Gotta go folks..have a great day
Spivey: I will see everyone later. 'Bye for now.
3rdthawkins: ryan, I am following similar clues with my Townsend, my great grandfather was Fed Townsend born in TX, but his father was born in MS.......they lived in Panola Co. TX......which was named after a County in MS, and I find a lot of Fed Townsend's in MS I said great grandfather , I meant great great grandfather I'm just trying to find a connection somehow
ryan: Yes, Ms to Tx very common late 1800s
3rdthawkins: but my Townsend's disappear in 1870
ryan: Fayette county texas up to dallas a lot of the whites from Marshall county went, though many of my ancestors disappear then too
3rdthawkins: no Townsends in Panola Co TX in 1870
vicky: who do you have in Fayette ryan?
ryan: The slaveowners of my GGgrandfather moved to Lagrange
vicky: wow, who were they. I have Sims, and Pierce
ryan: What happened there I think Fayette, TX was named after Fayette, TN because lots of the whites that settled in Lagrange, Faytte TX came from Fayette, TN
vicky: and Jefferson Jeffersons from Tn
ryan: Pennington was a name that went to Fayette Goodlett again, those were names of the white slave owners, I followed thier trackes lookin for my people
3rdthawkins: hello vee
vicky: hello vee
ryan: Hi vee
vee: Howdy 2 all and to each
3rdthawkins: hello free
vicky: my grandmother on my paternal side and her parents all from Lagrange
vicky: hello there freeaainnc
freeaainnc: hi vicky, ryan, vee
ryan: really ? Wow..
vee: I see from the boards that peeps are having problems getting in here

freeaainnc: I did vee! turned out I was using an old link
vee: Vicky is that LaGrange Texas
ryan: Yes Lagrange Texas
vicky: yes vee
vee: freeaainnc ahhh thanx free now that gives me an answer
vicky: they are all on my paternal side ryan not the same line my grandfather James Penn Daviss married Gertrude Sims
ryan: Ok, Sims is another very common name from Marshall county check this out http://pilot.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#placeId=1264247&alivePlaceLoc1=La%20Grange%2C%20Fayette%2C%20Texas%2C%20United%20States&p=recordResults&surname=pennington&searchType=close Martha, her grandfather owned my great great grandfather\
vicky: http://www.afrigeneas.com/preciousphotos/photo082.htm my grandmother Sallie and her 2nd husband John Lewis
ryan: Martha was raised in Marshall county, MS and Migrated to Lagrange, TX with her husband Goodlett
vicky: she was born a Jefferson vee I saw Lisa's post
3rdthawkins: I think Richard had a problem getting in to
ryan: Nice Pic Vicky
vicky: thx ryan I just found out the names of the two kids and the link to them about a year ago
ryan: where did Sims come from Vicky?
vicky: so was Pennington your Slave Owners name ryan
3rdthawkins: so you have Simms in your line also vicky?
ryan: Yes, they owned my grgr grandfather
vicky: not sure where they came from. May be Va
3rdthawkins: hmmm, my four older brothers are descendants of Simms, they were in VA/MD/DC area
vicky: so many times the census will tell you Tx but you know its not the case
freeaainnc: bye folks!
3rdthawkins: lots of Simms in the DMV
vicky: There was a Price Sims and a fletcher Sims.. I think they are the same my grandmothers DC states her father was Price, and her sister's states Fletcher
3rdthawkins: perhaps Fletcher Price Simms could be the name?
vicky: the sisters informant was her x hubby so he may have gotten it mixed up those are my thoughts 3rd or vice versa
ryan: Vicky, here is Graves Pennington and Martha Pennington when they were children. They're dad died and left them slaves and other property. These 2 were born in Nashville, TN, but raised in Marshall County, TN.. Martha Married Goodlett, then Moved to Langrange, TX 1880. Graves, her brother followed later. http://www.onefast.org/tonyr/pennington/henry_pennington_presentation/index_files/Page334.htm
3rdthawkins: I would put it that way even if it's not, you know you have two different names
ryan: see 468 section
3rdthawkins: one says James Payson the other William Payson, so I put James William Payson or William James Payson
vicky: thanks ryan I put in my favorites and will look closely if you dont mind
ryan: so my point is, the migration from Marshall county to Fayette, Tx hopefully that opens up some leads for you
vicky: thank you, I hope so too
ryan: Many of the blacks that left went toward Memphis, and Arkansas, others I assume followed the whites to TX
3rdthawkins: well, I"m gonna go, I'm browsing through Berkeley County Census records on the pilot hoping I come up with something on my Hawkins or Lums, gotta go finish ryan, do you know anything about the Lums in MS, I've seen a few there
ryan: no Lums
