vkn: Selma AYWalton karoshi8 Take a look at the post from Dolores on Brickwall. I think that is the family of Maynard Jackson and Matawilda Dobbs. Could be wrong however but take a gander

AYWalton: hair kinda burned along the edges. lol
vkn: My internet was down for about two hours from 8AM
AYWalton: just read the message on the Brick Wall Forum. Most of the answers can be found by simply googling.

Selma: Wow alt..
vkn: ouchies ayw there once was a salve called Ungentine. Ever heard of it. I bet Alt has and maybe Selma
AYWalton: then you sent the storm our way alt.

karoshi8: Where are you at AYWalton?

AYWalton: in MD gee thanks, but I don't really want it. Now that it's March I am in the mood for spring.
karoshi8: Seems like all of Ohio got a lot of snow. My mom was posting pics of it on facebook.
alt: karoshi8, did you ever say where in Ohio you were from?
karoshi8: I'm from Hocking County, Logan, Ohio In the hills with the hillbillies!
AYWalton: oops did we lose vkn?
alt: okay thanks, my wife's brother is in New Straightsville, just outside of Logan.
karoshi8: I was scared of New Straightsville when I was little. Lol! Still kinda am
AYWalton: ahh she is back.
Selma: What is New Straigtville?
AYWalton: need a pillow vkn? Or a seatbelt?
alt: oh, why is/was that, karoshi8?
vkn: Thankee for pillow

AYWalton: ahhh, new features coming or just tweaking things, vkn?
vkn: Not to be shoveling snow alt. Its a deadly task
karoshi8: I was fasinated with that for awhile.
AYWalton: Snow shoveling is truly not something to be done without care. Many heart attacks come from shoveling improperly.

AYWalton: good, alt!

vkn: Hopefully the tweak of the room will fix that
alt: poor Daviss & her internet connections
vkn: But that wii be about 6 hours away
AYWalton: she said she is downloading java again. re-installing it again.

AYWalton: hopefully that will work.
karoshi8: Yes, lot of people ran away to Florida.
alt: karoshi8, do you have any connections to Athens Co., OH? or Washington Co?
karoshi8: Yes, sir. Quite a lot.
vkn: karoshi8 I research Madison Leon and Jackson counties
karoshi8: Washington County, as in Washington Court House or is that Fayette?
alt: those are my wife's folks in that area... Adams, Harvey, Honesty, Tabler and of course Male'Mayle/Mahle.
karoshi8: vkn, the few black/indian books that I read there are some interesting stories about people from those counties.
alt: no, Washington Co., as in Marietta, Belpre, etc.
vkn: AYWalton I am interested to find probate records for one Bishop Adolphus Carr, pentecostal who died Oct 1970
karoshi8: Mayle's are close with the Stephens/Stevens my grandmothers family. I once dated a Mayle. That was before I found out that we were distantly related!
vkn: in Baltimore
AYWalton: who was that? will have to learn about him.
alt: Stephens/Stevens.... then you must be realted to Irita (Goins) Canady, karoshi8
Selma: How is Irita alt?
vkn: karoshi8 indeed one of the most gruesome lynchings in the world happened in Marianna
karoshi8: I also have Adams but no Honesty or Tabler's.
alt: she's doing well. you know her ex-husband passed away about 1 month ago.
karoshi8: I do have some Canady's and of course Goins of all kinds.
vkn: See the CARR postings on Surnames AYW
karoshi8: But my Canady is out of Gallia co.
alt: okay karoshi8
AYWalton: I shall have to take a look, vkn.
karoshi8: alt, why did all of these groups of people stay together? Was it the multiracial thing? Or more?
vkn: A relative of the man in question took the AfriGeneas sponsored class and is a resident here AYW family is from Nevis /St Kitts originally
Selma: No didn't know alt
alt: yes Selma
AYWalton: who is that vkn?
alt: dunno karoshi8, but those families have a lot of "closeness".
vkn: re the CARR postings ayw
karoshi8: alt, I talked to someone who married into one of the families and she said they were very clannish.
vkn: Elliott CARR is seeking to determine "wives" of his father who was Randolph Carr founder of Rehobeth Apostolic church ayw
AYWalton: Looking at the thread, right now.
vkn: Elliott CARR is seeking to determine "wives" of his father who was Randolph Carr founder of Rehobeth Apostolic church ayw in Baltimore
alt: yes they are, to say the least karoshi8
AYWalton: he took the class where you live, vkn?
vkn: no SHE, Beverly is a resident
Seventies: Good afternoon all!
alt: Hello Seventies
karoshi8: Good afternoon Seventies!
Selma: Well its about time seventies.. LOL
Seventies: hi alt, AYWalton, karoshi8, Selma and vkn
AYWalton: Just read the thread, vkn. howdy Seventies. Vicky says hello to all.
Seventies: I was at the gym today trying to get ahead of this snow storm they are predicting... and the phone rings..lol
alt: Randolph Carr.. interesting name, both as surnames have some deep and long VA histories, right Selma?
vkn: and Beverly took the class ayw. Slowly I am posting what research each class member started.
vkn: Middle name is Adolphus alt and Selma
Seventies: ok back
karoshi8: Can Carr also be Kerr?
Seventies: Could be. . .
vkn: and ayw Beverly was interested in finding the father of her father who just happens to be the brother of the Bishop Carr in question. Bishop Carr emerged incidental to the original research quest
AYWalton: so wasn't the Carr person African American, vkn? I ask because the draft card shown was not of an African American.
vkn: karoshi8 could be I research KERR with my BELL work and they are OH, Cleveland related
karoshi8: Oh! I know what question I had for you guys!!
AYWalton: oh was he a fair skinned black man?
karoshi8: I have a Pellman or a Penman in 1880 Kentucky who is head of household. But he has a white Irish boarder. Was that normal? I've never seen it before.
vkn: AYWalton that is where we must do more analysis Seems 2nd part of card belongs to other than the Bishop
AYWalton: and Arbutus and Halethorpe have been tradtionally white communities.
vkn: Not at all fair skinned AYW from the news clipping I have of his funeral
Selma: I was about to ask about newspapers vkn
Seventies: karoshi8, you may consider researching the boarder...
alt: gotta watch those draft registration cards .. often part 1 & 2 as images on Ancestry are "mixed" and the parts don't really match.
AYWalton: They are in Baltimore County near Catonsville (where I live) but that was always a white community.
Selma: Are there other Irish folks living in the neighborhood karoshi?
vkn: alt I believe that to be so in this case. thanx for the learning/teaching
karoshi8: I tried seems he went into Canada.
AYWalton: but they are front and back, usually. But who knows?
karoshi8: From what I can see it looks like a AA neighborhood. Most whites are from KY.
alt: I have seen cases where part 2 didn't belong to the person on part 1, but rather the person on a previous image for the correct part 2.
Selma: AY..I have Louis Diggs book on Black History in Catonsville
Seventies: I have to get to work... sorry I couldn't stay longer.
Selma: Alice gave it to me before she moved
alt: bye Seventies
AYWalton: yes he has done a book on every black neighborhood in Baltimore County. How is Alice, Selma?
Seventies: AYWalton, did I miss you on Bernice Bennett's show? Or is that tomorrow?
AYWalton: take care, Soulchile. that will be tomorrow evening.
vkn: hmmmmm ayw and Selma I recall during the class when we were doing newspapers there was always a clipping non bishopric in the news on Carr. Will have to go back into Legacy project archives to pull them up.
Selma: She is OK..she is up aournd Prince George's county.
Seventies: Great! Hopefully I'll be back from the gym in time.
AYWalton: in the Afro, vkn?
Selma: Where does the AAHGS chapter meet up that way AY
AYWalton: get a good workout and inspire me to work out.
Selma: Maybe her grand daughter can take her
AYWalton: the AAHGS chapter in Baltimore meets at a local library. the one in Columbia meets at a community center in the town.
Selma: Isn't there one in Prnice George
vkn: yes ayw we pulled all we could find at the time
AYWalton: and the one in PG usually meets somewhere around Bowie. So she has moved to MD, Selma?
Selma: Yes..that is where her grand daughters are
AYWalton: oh that's good. she is near the chapter where Carolyn Rowe is. well I had better run folks.
Selma: I will tell her
AYWalton: Gotta get my syllabus ready for the Jamboree. have a good one, folks. Will call later, vkn.
alt: karoshi8.. does the census record state Ireland as the birthplace for the boarder? Is this how you've determined he was Irish?
vkn: Also ayw we never found if burial was StKitts or Balti. So on to the Estate papers
Selma: Talk to you later..
AYWalton: take care everyone and a have a good day.
alt: okay karoshi8
Selma: I have to run folks... Have a great day
vkn: yall be good
alt: guess shop is closing for the day karoshi8
karoshi8: Around the same age as the head of household. Wow everyone left us!
alt: in a hurry too!!! LOL LOL are most of the folks on this census page AA/Blac/mulatto karoshi8?
karoshi8: Yes, for 4 pages before and 3-4 pages after.
alt: so the "irish" person is one of the few whites on those pages?
karoshi8: Yes. Just about the only. Never seen anything like that before. Especially boarding with a black person.
alt: doesn't sound like it would be common, at least not in that community.
karoshi8: This family is driving me crazy! I like the challenge though.
alt: is this in a farming community, or an urban setting?
karoshi8: Farming. Like New Straightsville only in KY.
alt: interesting, and as you say a challenge to determine the relationship, if it is more than just "boarder". well, my time is up too.... got some "honey-do's" I had better get done
karoshi8: I don't see him in anything else. But I suppose that will be my quest for today. Have an awesome day!
alt: good luck & take care
