Daviss: Hello Khathu!!
Khathu: Good afternoon everyone and Happy New Years!
alt: Hello Khathu, Happy New Year to ya!!
Daviss: Thats great alt!!
yatah: daviss, it will find match for me i do dna myself ?
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
Seventies: afternoon, vkn

Seventies: Yep... lol Mexico!
yatah: how is 1940 come out ? it good ?
Seventies: exactly vkn
Khathu: Hello Selma
Selma: The names on the Service Records are not always the same as what they used after on the pension records

vkn: they missed you at the summit yatah
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 pantry..is 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.
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.
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: Yatah..you 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?
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
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
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 Vicky..you know my brother in laws name is Tyler
Daviss: glad to see you yatah and happy New Year

Daviss: Oh, Selma see good people all around
Daviss: lol later folks
Selma: I have to run too folks..have a great dy
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
