New to this site
Farm Girl, I stumbled upon this site yesterday after googling my Great-Great Grandfather, Thomas Murphy. #37247561. His children listed is incomplete. My Great-Grandmother (Grammy) was Marie Murphy-Hunter. I searched for her today and she does have a listing, #31153138. Since I am new to this site can you help me get Marie listed under her father? She would be Beatrice's sister. It is stated in her obituary under her grave number.

Thank you so much!

You are very Welcome. Your memorial for Silas is well laid out and explains things as best you can at this time. Perhaps in the future a document will pop up that will solve the "W.H." mystery but until then it is just that. A mystery.

As we had dicussed in earlier messages it is one of three things.

A complete goof by whoever did the stone.
She remarried sometime between Silas's death and the 1925 census.
Silas was known by another name.

It was a fun little adventure. I found you very easy to work with and open to suggestions (theories). Perhaps in the future we can work togather again as the Chillicothe Cemetery is on my list of places to visit and photograph. (It is a very long list. LOL)

Best regards

I haven't messed with HTML for years but see if the below works. If I did it right, it should be a clickable link.

Silas Warren marriage

If it does not work perhaps you have someplace I can send the file. It is about 2 1/2 MB large.

RE: Please remove list of children from bio. area.
I will be happy to do so just as soon as the memorial creators link them to their parents-just to be sure that they actually do so. Please just notify me when you've heard back from all of them.

RE: Mary Viola Forsythe Warren
If you choose to go to my Google page I have uploaded a copy of the marriage record for Silas and Viola.
The file is called "Silas Warren Marriage". I believe it is the second file from the top.

My Google storage site is -

Did Silas have an expanded name? Was Silas a nickname that stuck. I remember some folks talking one time about their uncle Buck who had died. That wasn't his real name but that is all they had ever heard him called. When I see W.H., I think "William Henry", but for Viola it might have been "Whata Honey" LOL

I'll leave ya alone now. You'll figure it out.

Mary Viola Forsythe Warren
Could you please contact me through my email in reference to Mary Viola Forsythe Warren (Find A Grave Memorial# 81728162) I have a stone photo but would like some clarification as she is listed as wife of "W.H. Warren", not Silas. I could send you photos of the stone by email and maybe we can sort this out. My email is listed on our members page.

Thank you for your time.

Sadie's two husbands
I believe Sadie's first husband was William Albert Walker. They married in 1917. Her second husband was Ben M. Buress and they were married in 1940.

More confusing data. His DC shows father as Silas Hayden and mother as Pollie Bernard.

Your memorial shows parents as "Nathan Hadon" & "Lucy Bernard". I have Leroy Hayden in the 1880 Macon Co, Mo census as a child of Silas Hayden and Sarah, along with two other siblings. One of which is in my mothers line of the Haydens. What info do you have that made that connection?

Thank you for all your efforts to support Find A Grave.

RE: Fountain Baker Sampson
Ok, thanks for the reply.

I was reading last night that some of the Baker & Sampson families that migrated to the NE part of Missouri were from Kentucky. I'll explore that further.

Thanks again,

Fountain Baker Sampson
Hi Farm Girl,

First of all, love your ID!

I noticed you have quite a lot on the Sampson family of Fountain Baker Sampson, Find A Grave Memorial# 50409665 & if you are related, wondered if you have any thoughts on who his parents might be.

I was recently contacted by a descendant who thinks it might be Jesse & Elizabeth Tune Sampson, Virginia natives who moved to Smith County, Tennessee.

I'm coming up with no original source documents that show this relationship, so reaching out now to others who have listed him at different sites.

Thanks so much,
Gloria J. Tune

William Marshall
Just one little note more, since he is Mary, Martha, Sarah (and Mildred too)'s father that means His parents are their grandparents instead of parents. His spouse/their mother was Elizabeth Williams. If you would like to take a look at them or others in my tree, you can find them easily as my contributor name "Lilly B" is the start of almost all my trees on ie "Lilly B's BENNETT Family Tree" (my paternal side) "Lilly B's Wells and Goodwin Family Tree" (maternal side) and finally "Lilly B's My Whole Family Tree with a few extras thrown in for good measure" It is the merge of both the others and as it says a few "extras" If you would like an invitation to any of them you can send me an email at I maintain and contribute to a few memorial pages here on too.

Mary Marshall and sister Martha Marshall
Mary Marshall married John Estes and her sister Martha married Michael Yates and they had an older sister Sarah Marshall b:1721 and she married Col. Richard Durrett (as his 3rd wife and was mother of all his younger set of children rather than Sarah Hampton who was only married to him briefly (they married in 1742 and Sarah Marshall married him in 1743) because they were both Sarahs in most family trees people only put in Sarah Hampton (who was b: 1724-25 while Rchd Durrett was b: in 1705. He was wealthy (at least he had a lot of land in various parts of VA by the time he died so he left his sons separate 'estates' when he died. Sarah Marshall was the oldest sister and their father was William Marshall b: 1685 (the one you have linked to Mary as her sibling (she was b: in 1726 not 1736 just a few yrs younger than Sarah and Martha was b:1725. These Mashall, Estes, and Yates (Martha married M Yates) both of them as well as Sarah Marshall each named one of their sons William Marshall 'Durrett', Estes, and Yates (other sons just Marshall and so on) and the names were passed on to later generations in these families. I can see a sibling being even twenty years older, but not 40 yrs as with William Marshall 1685 and Martha and Mary (Sarah too) at 1725 etc. I Just happened to notice this and who you had as her parents etc as I was attaching her memorial pg. I believe that it was Sarah Hampton who in 1749 married my Bennett ancestor Rice Bennett in Cumberland Co, VA. Its all these family connections that re-enforce and for me prove she is the most likely 'Sarah' as she had family there and later records support it. I think she and/or her parents learned Rchd Durrett's true age (or perhaps other facts about him they didn't like and the marriage was either annulled or a quick divorce. Usually if there's an annullment the marriage record is destroyed, so its most likely a divorce. That would have been a huge shame to a young bride. So she went to live with relatives (in this case in Cumberland Co, VA) If she had died, she would not have been confused with Sarah Marshall whom he married within a year or less. He had connections and business dealings with her father William Marshall (land records show this) in Caroline Co, VA and he owned lands there also as well as several other places in VA. The best known or connected to him are the lands his son Richard Durrett Jr inherited in Albemarle Co, VA. I only mention and explain about this Durrett marriages as that is the round about way that I realized that the wives of both my Estes and Yates branches and Col. Rchd Durrett's correct wife (and mother of his younger children, he had several from an earlier marriage) Sarah Marshall were all sisters. That also means that Marshall Estes and his wife Martha Yates were 1st cousins. The Estes and Yates were my ancestors through my paternal grandmother Pearl S Jones Bennett. Her maternal grandmother was Louisa Estes nee Harbour the daughter of George Yates Estes. Lilly B
