alt: okay, I was just reading about some Jimi Hendrix genealogy and his connections to Urbana, Ohio and some of my folks.
Daviss: hi there
Seventies: Good afternoon, alt, Daviss and vkn

Seventies: Hey Daviss, join the rest of us Powerball losers... lol No biggie. :}
vkn: The loooooong arm indeed alt
alt: I didn't win the BIG one .... but..........
Daviss: Tyler picked the 5 and the PB lol
Seventies: alright Tyler boo!
Daviss: four dollars lol
Seventies: alt won the million dollar lotto. lol
alt: I didn't say that either Seventies :p
Seventies: That was the wildest lotto I've ever seen. Jumped up 125 million in two days. But hey, if they are giving 40 mil, I'll take it:) Ok folks, so I'm looking over the census records trying to establish a death year for Anthony Brown and Frank Brown of Adams Co. MS. Looks like Nancy Miles/Myles was their mother. Still trying to connect Dinah and the two men together as siblings. they always lived in close proximity to each other up to about 1910-1920
Daviss: vkn, did you see the post I answered re muhammed?
alt: I spent $10.00 6.00 on the powerball & 4.00 on Ohio scratch off tickets.... won $50.00 on the scratch off & zip/nada on the powerball.
Seventies: Yeah I can see that happening.
Daviss: good alt, I like those scratchers
Seventies: I'm curious if Frank or Anthony either served in the USCT.
Daviss: the most I have scratched on one ticket was $125.oo
alt: won just enough to take Anita out for a post T-Day & pre-Anniversary snack. LOL
Seventies: Okay I am going to take a TV/lunch break... I'll be back by 1, please don't shut down the chat room... lol
Daviss: friend of mine scratched $7,770
vkn: No but I will look Daviss
alt: Wow Daviss!!!!! have you checked the CWSS database for their names Seventies?
Daviss: I just asked what info he had already ......names, years etc..no reply yet
vkn: ahhhhhhhh he not talking lol
Daviss: I know, it does not make sense to not relay what you already have IF you have anything at all
vkn: seventies did you get the notification I sent re the funeral record
Daviss: seventies went to get lunch vkn
vkn: oops ok I am trying to get up to speed on Twitter
Daviss: I was just thinking if you dont say what you have and everyone contributes what they find for you, all the work is done lol makes me wonder..IJS
vkn: daviss did you find Nita suspect or is that just me?
alt: I admire y'all in your reponses to posters who ask for help, but present little information & sketchy query's as to what they are loooking/asking for.
Daviss: :o vkn.....
vkn: and alt some of the real sketchy is apt to be a robot
alt: you guys and AfriGeneas still have that 'personal' touch that most Forums no longer have.
Daviss: alt, some of these folks like the one I just mentioned may even be getting pd. How can you say you are helping all these people at once with no info??
vkn: yes alt you just can't hardly get that any more
alt: I heard a great term for those types of genealogist (?) ... called them 'drive-by' genealogist, they hit & miss, see them once and then they are gone.
Daviss: I have a keen nose sometimes I think
alt: I never thought of that aspect Daviss, hmmmn
Daviss: some I think gear up around reunion time alt
vkn: lol hit and run lol
alt: yep vkn 'hit & run'
vkn: also snatch and grab lol
vkn: BUT the louverture stories are so rewarding that the others matter not
Daviss: they become satisfied with one or two generations and thats it. Usually grandpa
alt: yeah Daviss, you never know how much help you give satisfies their "itch".
Daviss: You have to have something special in you to did further and its not just being nosey either did = dig
alt: my grumpy approach the last year or so has been to refer them to a website or a resource, but not do any 'searching' for them. right Daviss, their query really has to pique my interest to do any digging and then to respond to them. by t hen htat's just grumpy old alt LOL LOL
Daviss: well look at that one post asking if anyone had a number for a cemetery. he had the name and place. Well why did I have to do a google
alt: but then that's just grumpy old alt that's what I'm talking about Daviss
Daviss: He could have done that himself..but one day soon I will start saying, did you google it lol sheesh!
alt: sic'em Daviss, sic'em LOL LOL

Name was change to Hendrix when he left Urbana, Ohio for Chicago in the 1890;s.
Seventies: Hey thanks for sharing alt, I wanted to see what you had before I left. That's interesting. This is on the father's side. Aren't the Cherokee claiming him as a part of the Tribe?? lol I find that incredibly funny.
Daviss: Hendrix and Joplin put on a good show together back in the day
Seventies: Oh I think my grandparents attended that one... tee hee hee.. :}
alt: Hendrix Cherokee ancestry is supposed to be from his mother's ancestry.. from Georgia.
Seventies: Okay alt. I heart you Daviss. :}

alt: is that right vkn
Daviss: lol thanks much Seventies
Seventies: Is there any information to substantiate that alt that you know of?

Daviss: could be both Seventies
Seventies: wow... alt, you have all the connections... lol I have nothing! lol
