Daviss: Its autograph time for them now huh

alt: I reckon Daviss

Seventies: Were they being interviewed?

Khathu: @Seventies - I have made some in tracking down the enslaved Africans listed in the probate records after slavery

Daviss: I am sure yatah if someone takes the test that matches you

alt: No, they were in the audience and both we able to ask questions and to get some TV time LOL LOL

Khathu: I was able to reconstructe several families along taking the surname Griffin

Seventies: okay... this was in Texas?

Khathu: Yep...Smith County, Texas

Seventies: The Griffins were in TX as well?

yatah: ok thanks

Daviss: welcome yatah

Khathu: No that was the surname name that the enslaved Africans selected

Seventies: Let me rephrase, these Griffins remained in Smith County? I know of some Griffins in AL related to a family member. I know you mentioned that the family travelled from GA and to other states.

yatah: i i will do dna genealogy this jan

Daviss: Griffins in Mt Enterprise also not sure what county that is right now

Khathu: Yes, they remained in Texas

alt: good luck & best wishes with your DNA testing yatah.

Seventies: Khathu, will you be going to DAR in the near future?

alt: please 'read up' on genetic genealogy to help ypu from being confused about your test results yatah.

Khathu: On Saturday

Seventies: ok I think I'm going to turn my focus on t The Washingtons, Henyards and McFarland families The problem with the Washingtons/Walkers is that pesky name change.

Khathu: The Griffin surname is definitely a clue to where the Darseys acquired their enslaved property

alt: Khathu, I have research work at DAR submitted on a Richard Stanhope/Stanup for the Lagonda Chapter of the DAR.

yatah: i will do that

Seventies: Right Khathu...

Daviss: well as usual I got a "screetching halt" on my Harrison County research

Khathu: And maybe a clue to Ann's surname and family

Seventies: Interested in knowing what you find out about that line.

Daviss: I swear something is going on

Khathu: @alt is that one of your ancestors

alt: no, but a couple of his children married into my Adams family and he was a neighbor of my 3rd great-grandfather in Champaign County, Ohio Khathu

Daviss: ok back!

Seventies: about 30

Selma: You talked me up where seventies..

Daviss: Hi there Selma!! Happy New Year

Seventies: Before you came in, I asked where is Selma.. :}

alt: so they were born in Mexicao in the 1830's - 1840's?

yatah: oh sorry

Seventies: Yes, three of them Thomas, Edward (Ned) and Millie

Selma: Had to drop the little darlin's at Day Care..then checked out sales on Xmas stuff (nothing left)..then restocked my that good?

Seventies: All of the children were born in MS

vkn: so near yet so faryatah

Seventies: that's awesome Selma!

alt: that's god Selma

vkn: so near yet so far yatah that's good selma

Selma: Now I need a nap.. LOL

Daviss: I picked up the new Time magazine

alt: Seventies, are there Henyard's, or a variation in the U.S. for census records in the pre-1850's?

yatah: oh i see

Selma: Me too daviss

Seventies: I didn't see any, but I did locate some 'Henyards' in Texas, El Paso area.

Daviss: my brother in Moreno Valley went to about 5 stores he said.. He finally found one that was hidden in the back of more magaines

alt: okay Seventies.... west TX just across the border with Mexico.

Daviss: magazines

Seventies: Yep. they were Mexican.

Daviss: yatah in answering your questions, there are many who have been lucky looking at the 1940 census

Seventies: They were in MS in the 1850's as many of their children were born there, alt. Still trying to get more details...

yatah: daviss that great news i hope i can find my

alt: keep working it Seventies, you'll break the puzzle yet.

Seventies: Yes, hopefully.

Daviss: Good luck with it yatah!

Selma: They were "free" or enslaved in Mexico? then moved to Mississippi

Seventies: Not sure Selma.

yatah: yea

Seventies: I will be focusing more attention on this line in the upcoming months though.

alt: with the El Paso thing, that could be similar to the situation in this area with the Canadian border...... folks in northern Ohio and eatern Michigan often traveled back and forth from Ontario into the U.S. matter of fact, don't you have some Canadian Henyard's too?

Seventies: alt that's what I was thinking. a while back jhonora gave me some info about some slaveholders who traveled to MX from MS & LA I haven't found a connect to those Henyard's alt.

alt: oh, okay Seventies

Seventies: There's also a Henyard family in Georgia. No connect there either.

Selma: Anybody written anybooks on the white Henyards?

alt: not the most common surname, so there might well be a connection for all of them furhter back in time.

yatah: i ask you why i cant find luther after 1930

Seventies: Selma, not that I'm aware of. I did look up the etymology of the name though.

Daviss: no idea on that yatah, I have not found some of mine

alt: is that like the 'origin' of the surname Seventies? LOL LOL

Seventies: lol lol nope! lol

alt: just pickin' at ya Seventies

yatah: that one i look for that but i have his brothers and sister s record werid

Seventies: I guess I have some preliminary work to do with these folks.

alt: hang in there Seventies

Selma: found the brothers and sisters on the 1940 census..but not luther?

Seventies: thanks alt. After a morning of no network connectivity, I guess I'd better get back to work. Bye y'all!

yatah: selma his brothers and sister died early and my grandpa died 1992 luther still alive 1910 and 1930 after that dont know

alt: where were they in 1930 yatah, including Luther?

Daviss: oh that was quick Seventies

Seventies: Well, I just found a Commodore Hinyard with a parent born in Africa... in Wilkinson Co, MS.

Daviss: vkn is that VSO bottle empty yet lol

Khathu: wow...great find

Daviss: Good for you Seventies

Seventies: After all this time, this is a new record. See what I'm saying about Ancestry.

alt: wow, what year is that Seventies?

Seventies: 1910

yatah: alt 1930 luther on list with his brother clarence and thier mother josephine in south carolina

Khathu: Daviss have you had any luck with the books on family search?

Seventies: I know its mine because there is a Stuart, another family I've been noticing moving around near my family, living in a nearby. Ok gotta go for real... lol

Daviss: nope khathu and just as a mention that one I just told you about was on Family Search

vkn: back

Daviss: Daniel Morse was a minister who lived in the same area as my folks and I believe that the marriage lic I "think " is my Mariah was done by him

vkn: Had a new PRITCHARD and anew GIBSON contact all from the Slater treein one week

Daviss: I wanted to read up on him

Khathu: okay

alt: looks like 2013 is going to be bountiful vkn

vkn: so chickens are roosting lol

Daviss: other than that, nothing else on Family Search books that caught my fancy No new names so I cant really tell anyway Khathu

vkn: let's hope alt Niters all

Daviss: day for me vkn lol

alt: selma, did you see my mention of Bernice & Angela on C-Span3?

Selma: No..don't know what you are talking about..were they on

Khathu: I see Gotta run

Daviss: ok bye

alt: a viewing from NARA for the Emancipation Proclamation ... both got to ask questions

Selma: Oh I missed... When was that? Was it on today?

Daviss: It should show again should it not

yatah: get it i asnwer your question alt ?

alt: I saw it last nite around 8:00 PM yes yatah.... I think you need to work with the family in 1930, their ages at that time, where you found the other's in 1940 and possibly where Luther might have migrated to by 1940.

Daviss: I better go get Mr Tyler a haircut... hugs to Victoria Angela Selma

yatah: maybe solider or whater alt ?

Selma: Ok know my brother in laws name is Tyler

Daviss: lol later folks

Selma: I have to run too folks..have a great dy

yatah: alt,

alt: I dunno yatah, but don't you have them out of SC and into PA and later into OH.

yatah: maybe that check up i mean i know 1900 i find it was match

alt: gotta run yatah, but remember folks aren't always gonna be where you think they are in the census records from year to year so you have to search more than just one State/location.

yatah: true thanks i will keep look

alt: from census year to census year bye

yatah: bye
