RE: Your edit for Martha Macon Curry
OK - this is what I have

1. Siblings born 2 yrs before and 3 yrs after were born in TN. Although when she was abt 5 they temporarily lived in Logan Co., KY So it is possible that she was born in KY.

2. Early census records indicated TN but may not be reliable because all other children were TN

3. Birth date of Oct and 1864 true. 18th very well inaccurate due to handwriting. I am changing dob to 15th. (I am sure children would know her birth date.)

Anna Jones/ Strother Jones
If you want I would be happy to put something on Anna's memorial that would cover it I believe. Just to clarify I double checked my records, Strother divorced Lucy Newton, Nov., 1850 in Sangamon Co., IL. She married a second time to Ferdinand Meeker. If you want maybe a brief statement to the affect: "While we are not sure that Anna Gable and Strother G. Jones were ever formally married, their romantic liaison produced one daughter Katherine. Evidence to the relationship is found in numerous Springfield Directories listing Anna as the widow of Strother. Also in 1883 Katherine marries W. J. Corcoran in Decatur, Illinois and lists Strother G. Jones as her father on her marriage license. Katherine is not mentioned in her father's 1901 obituary which leads us to believe all events concerning Strother, Anna and Katherine occurred outside the vows of holy matrimony."

Anna Jones linked to Strother

Anna had a daughter out of wedlock between his first marriage to Lucy Newton whom he divorced in 1852 and his marriage to Lucy Cass. On his illegitimate daughter's marriage license she states her father is Strother G. Jones. Also in many of the street directories Anna Jones, widow of Strother. Problem was he wasn't dead. She took the Jones name as her legal name even though I like you have never found a marriage for her or a divorce. I did not put this on the memorial as this whole affair has been upsetting to the other Strother descendants. There was a book being done on Strother when the lady doing some research on the family bumped into the guy that was to write the book I guess after she told him about the divorce and the illegitimate child, the book was cancelled. She told me the guy was really upset. Hope this finds you well and hope this clarified the situation.

RE: Elizabeth Pefferle Moore #63162186
That's great and I found her kids so confirms it's her. Don't know what happened to James. This makes sense why she wasn't in the IL death index because it doesn't go to 1969. Thanks for looking into that! Looking at the gravestone, it only has her first name, not her maiden or married names. The obit also gave her parents names which is good to know. Sorry it took me a while to get back to you.

RE: Elizabeth Pefferle Moore #63162186
Hi, I'm getting back to you regarding your 2/3 message about Elizabeth (Robson) Pefferle Moore. To answer your question, I cannot find any information for her death which seems strange. She is in the 1920 census with James E. Moore and her Pefferle son and Moore daughter. She's in the 1930 census with James. All the while she's in Springfield. If she passed away in IL, she should be in the IL death & stillbirth index, but I can't find her. Based on the photo of the grave marker that it is difficult to see the death date on there, but I would think it would be recorded.

Mary Copple Bayly
Recently you sent me an edit request to Mary Bayly (92636235) to add her maiden name 'Copple'. I was wondering if you knew who her parents were (I am a Copple descendant).

Thanks in advance,
