daviss: hello karoshi!!
HotLanta: howdy karoshi
Selma: Afternoon karoshi
HotLanta: what is new with karoshi
alt: hello karoshi
karoshi: Annoyed HotLanta! lol
HotLanta: oh dear
karoshi: I'm about done with these OH,MI,IN, and KY people. I need a new family! lol
daviss: lol karoshi a new one may be worse lol
karoshi: Maybe so daviss. I don't have a family tree I got a wreath.
daviss: hhahahahaha I hear ya
karoshi: The more I add the more it just circles back.
daviss: Ohio should have some good records
alt: that happens in many family trees karoshi, called "pedigree collapse" or something like that when we have inter-marriages between families from past generations.
karoshi: But it seems to be every generation. Spanning from OH, IN, MI, and KY. Oh and VA and NC. Always always ALWAYS back to VA and NC.
alt: Well, if they started in KY look to family migrations into OH, IN & MI and for VA/NC look to migrations to OH and then how they expand out to othe other states. you'l probably find not only a migration pattern, but often a naming apttern within these families
karoshi: I do. Especially with Stewart's. Is it because they were FPOC's? Sticking together?
alt: could be or just families sticking together.... "plantation kin", not just FPOC
Selma: There was protection in numbers..cause their numbers weren't that great depending on where they were
yatah: hey his name melivin j collier ?
karoshi: I'm not even doing any new research. This is all from my connections on tribal pages. I have 526 with the Charles Sidney Smith page and 192 with alt's
daviss: yes yatah
alt: Charles Sidney Smith ... is that from Debbie McIntosh's (?) page
karoshi: Yes sir.
daviss: thats quite a lot karoshi
karoshi: I know daviss. I've added about 200 names from yesterday to today. And that is only starting with a connection to one family.
alt: yes, her page answered many of my questions about famly that went to MI and some of those marriages that took place
yatah: ok thanks daviss i can type right
daviss: yes yatah and you are welcome
karoshi: Seems a lot of the Cass Co. MI people went to IN. Which is were the Robert's settlement was.
Selma: Folks..have to run..have a great day
yatah: i found his blog
alt: I thought the movement was in the other direction karoshi .. from IN to MI.
daviss: ok yatah
karoshi: I've seen it both ways. Especially with the Weavers and some Stewart's.
karoshi: Some even from TN to IN to MI to KS.
daviss: Do you have any Tolberts or Tollivers that may have migrated to Tx From KY
karoshi: The only TX I have are Penman's and Broadus. From KY.
daviss: Do you know where in TX karoshi?
karoshi: Let me check real quick.
alt: let me skedaddle for the day ... daviss, I'll get back with you on the Edwards & Marshall, TX connection.
karoshi: Around West Columbia daviss
daviss: thank you so much alt
karoshi: yatah were you working on the Stewart's in Gallia county, Ohio?
daviss: oh ok karoshi, thats rather far from Harrison County
karoshi: If I see anymore I'll let you know daviss. Where in KY are they coming from?
daviss: I am really not sure yet karoshi, I am trying to find that out..I have them in 1870 census in Texas that is They are with Ware but cant figure out when the Ware's came to Tx
karoshi: Ok. I just added some Ware's but they are in Michigan and Ohio.
karoshi: Ware's from KY as well?
karoshi: I see some Ware's from Christian, Campbell, Kenton, and Pulaski counties.
