Maria Louisa Spear
We are visiting our relatives at Galloway Ridge Retirement Community in Pittsboro, NC and just off the property is a small family grave site with graves for Jones and Smith family. Also there is a grave stone for Maria Louisa Spear , born April ? 1804 and died Jan 6, 1881. I looked up the Jones/Smith family but only found this one site for Maria Louisa Spear and wondered how she was related.

Janet Monteith connection
Hello Ben:
My take on Janet Monteith Cuthbertson is that she married David Cuthbertson (Mem. #125832968) and that together they begat among others: Rhoda (Rhody) Elizabeth (Lizzie) Cuthbertson who married Lemuel (Lamb) (or Lamuel) Williams. Rhody and Lamb begat among others: Coleman Williams who married Esther Ellen Braswell. Coleman and Esther begat among others Eli Franklin Williams who married Rachel Ann Craig. Eli and Rachel bore among others: Mary Ellen (Ella) Williams who married David Lewis Baker. Mary Ella and David begat among others: Margaret Ann Baker who married Leonard Querry Ferguson. Together, they begat among others: Suzette Ferguson Bigham--me. I'd like to have as much information as you can share about Janet Monteith Cuthbertson as well as David Cuthbertson as I continue my climb up this ancestral tree. Thanks so much! Suzette

Hi Ben-

I sent you an email with some Cuthbertson family questions and wonder if you might know of any Sherrill connections with them. My David Hampton Sherrill was living with Josiah Cuthbertson in 1850, and listed as an apprentice millwright.
Hoping there is possibly some family connection between the Cuthbertson-Sherrill-Smith families.

Thanks for any info you may have!

Hi Ben,

My mother-in-law was a Whiddon, descended from William Whiddon and Sarah Skinner, through their son, Nathan Whiddon and his wife, Mary Nix; and their son William Zachary Whiddon and his wife, Tempie Annie Sims, and their son James Claude Whiddon and his wife, Era Tarbet. Would love to share what I have on this line.
