Karoshi8: Just read Southern Seed, Northern Soil about the Robert's and Beech Settlements in Indiana. Even talked to the author.

alt: vkn, you got my response on the "expert tips" request?

Karoshi8: He didn't even realize that the people there were connected to the Ross County people.

alt: wonderful Karoshi8

vkn: i sure did alt and thanx muchly

Karoshi8: Thanks for the sites alt.

vkn: alt can you attend a 9am webinar 2morry

alt: is that right Karoshi8 ... that kind of shows us how "provincial' some authors can be.... especially with the Roberts, they have long and strong Ohio roots even before they went to Indiana.

Karoshi8: Do tell alt! PLEASE! I know I have some Robert's and I definitely have Winburns. But I don't know how they connect to the Indiana ones.

alt: If you remind me with an email vkn .... 9AM .... I'm up and kicking by then.

Selma: Doesn't abpolk have an Indiana connection?

alt: yep Selma, a 'bunch of'em"

vkn: thanx alt watch for details in mail and thanx to all for alonzo support and cleveland event

Selma: Jeez the big news for the past 2 days is Beyonce-Gate.. LOL

alt: Karoshi8, check here for some info on Roberts in Ross County, Ohio ... Chillicothe in particular

Karoshi8: Lol! Selma


alt: thanx vkn.... I've alerted all of my Clevleand folks to the upcoming Lines performances in Cleveland on the 27th...

vkn: and me too all of my KERR and Karamu connections alt

alt: vkn, I'm almost positive that H. Leslie Adams, the AA Classical composer will be in attendance at one of the nights.

vkn: Well the two of them MUST meet alt

alt: I'm hoping they have the opportunity of 'connecting' vkn.

Karoshi8: Oh, that is Mrs. Beverly's page. I've spoken to her several times but I don't think we spoke about the Robert's. Thanks!

vkn: Karoshi8 do i have an email for you

Karoshi8: Not sure. It's

vkn: thanx

alt: if it's Ross, SE Ohio & AA Bev has some information on them Karoshi8 LOL LOL

Karoshi8: Very true alt. That is where my Winburns lived.

vkn: 51 degrees here today

alt: hush yo mouf vkn LOL LOL turn it around for me 15 degrees

Karoshi8: From what I see, the Roberts came from North Carolina to Ross County, then some when on to Indiana.

vkn: woo woo too cold

Selma: 30 degrees here..bright and sunny

alt: yep, colder than ............ LOL LOL

Karoshi8: Now I understand why mine stayed in Ross county I suppose.

Selma: Umm..let me see if I have Abpolks narrative here

alt: Karoshi8, you know Ross county had the largest AA population in Ohio from like 1820 up to about 1850, or so, especially when Chillicothe was the state capitol.

Karoshi8: Yes. Chillicothe seems to be the place to be. :)

alt: at least it was in those early days.

Karoshi8: Thanks for all the help!

Selma: Think she posted the narrative on Heinneg's site


Selma: Yes.. let me see

alt: apolk's narrative on FPOC Indiana & Tennesse

Karoshi8: Thank you!

Selma: yes...on the Lyles family

alt: her narrative deals primarily with the Lyles & Lyles Station,

Selma: Yes..just re read

Karoshi8: Don't think I have any Lyles.

alt: but she also has family in eastern Indiana & Dayton, Ohio

Selma: Here focus is on Lyles/Liles but there are other surnames to which there are connections that are mentioned..good example of migration

alt: very good example of migration Selma

Karoshi8: Great!

Selma: Sometimes other folks narratives gives good examples of the type of info folks should take a look at

alt: Karoshi8, did the author you mentioned also get into the Weaver & Pettiford families in southern Indiana along with the Roberts?

Karoshi8: Yes and no. It was more about the settlements and reasons for their success. I have Weavers as well and I knew they were some at the settlements, but I didn't realize that Pettiford was also in Indiana. Makes sense since they are also a NC family/

Selma: Folks I have to run...have a great day Bye

Karoshi8: You too Selma I'm going to head out too. Everyone stay warm!

vkn: bye history my aches and pains are aching take all care history and be at peace
