I love being a family historian! In addition to researching my family's past, I love preserving the present in scrapbooks so that family members will be able to enjoy our family history in the future. |
I have completed over 90 scrapbooks and 12 family history books. Adding memorials to Find a Grave is a wonderful way to honor our family members as well as providing vital information for future research.

|Dan Harp||RE: Gurley Family in Alabama|
Great! I recently had a yDNA test, which is the chromosome carried from father to son to grandson, etc. With the last name of Harp, I was expecting to find yDNA matches with the surname of Harp. Out of 19 matches,there were no Harps, but 14 had the surname of Gurley. Further testing of my yDNA-67 showed that 3 Gurley matches were within 6 generations.
For years, the parents of my great-grandfather, Henry Harp, have been a mystery to my family. To make a long story short, I believe Henry Harp was born out-of-wedlock in 1868 and assumed his mother's name (Sarah Harp). In the past few weeks, I have studied the proximity of Gurleys living around the "Josie Beat" area during that time, and came up with the names of Jacob Gurley's family and their 4 sons: David, Hiram, Andrew and Henry, who were about the same age of Sarah Harp. As you know, they all fought in the Civil War where Henry died in 1862. The 3 remaining siblings came back to Barbour County and married just after the war.
So, I'm looking at the possibility that either David, Hirah, or Andrew might be my great-great grandfather.
Could you private email me at email@example.com so we can discuss this further?
Thanks so much for your time. Dan Harp

Hi, are you a direct descendant of either David Mosley, Hiram Warner, or Andrew Jackson Gurley who lived in Barbour County, AL during 1850-1870?

How utterly wonderful to find this photograph. Trust your Mom is doing well. This Tucker lineage just keeps getting more interesting.
May I download this photo to add to my collection? I am just amazed how much Pauline Hurley looks like Alice Tucker.

Whoa. While researching Dad's uncle Aus (Austin Howard Tucker), I found Bessie Mae's daughter Pauline. I did a double-take when I saw her picture.
I thought it was a picture of my Aunt Alice. I was named for her sister Pauline.
Anita, thank-you for sharing this very special picture.
