Guess what I got in the mail?
In Response To: Henry & Lizzie Joines - Waterbury CT ()
Last Friday I order the death certificate for Henry Joines Sr to confirm that he was the son of Enoch Joines and Lizzie Joines. Henry migrated to New Haven Connecticut from Darlington, SC.
Today, 5 days later I am doing the Halleluah Dance. This is the quickest I have ever received a death/birth certificate. Not only did the death certificate confirm that Enoch Joines and Elizabeth are his parents, but I also got Elizabeth(Lizzie's) maiden name. It was Hudson. So, Henry Sr definitely was my gg grandfather's brother. So, now I'm off to write a letter to Henry Joines' Jr.'s daughter.
One sad note though, the cause of death was heart disease, which seems to be very prominent in my family line since I started this research.
Thanks for letting me share,
