|Mo Crawfish||Nathaniel Morris #139683887|
Thank you for creating and managing the lovely memorial for Nathaniel Morris and his two wives. He and Hopestill Woods Morris are two of my 6th great-grandparents and he is one of my patriot ancestors for DAR membership.
There is a bit of confusion about the exact nature of his service in the Revolutionary War. As I'm sure you're aware, the DAR recognizes both military service and patriotic service during the Revolutionary War as qualifying acts to designate a person as a patriot ancestor. Military service is fairly straightforward and self-explanatory. Patriotic service can be anything from furnishing supplies, holding a position in a civic or governmental body, signing oaths of allegience, etc.
According to DAR records, there was not one, but three Nathaniel Morrises who are recognized as patriots of the American Revolution. The first is a Nathaniel Grisdean Morris who was born about 1730 and served as a lieutenant and later as a captain in the Berkeley County, Virginia militia. His wife's name was Thankful (maiden name unknown). He died in Berkeley County, Virginia sometime after September 9, 1806. So clearly, this Nathaniel G. Morris is not the Nathaniel Morris the memorial I've referenced in the subject line refers to.
The second patriot Nathaniel Morris was born about 1734 in Hanover County, Virginia. He is documented as providing both military and patriotic service. He served as a private in the Continental Line as well as furnished supplies. His wife was Nancy Jeffries. He died January 21, 1813 in Buckingham County, Virginia. This is also not the correct Nathaniel Morris.
Lastly, there is a Nathaniel Morris recognized for patriotic service. He was born in New Jersey about 1730. His patriotic service is signing an oath of allegiance to make a land entry in Surry County, North Carolina. This can be found in SURRY CO NC LAND ENTRIES, 1778-1781, Page 130. He married first, Rebecca Bailey and second, Hopestill Wood. He died in Surry County, North Carolina sometime after November 1802. So this is clearly the correct Nathaniel Morris. He is a patriot of the Revolutionary War, but he did not provide military service and he was not a captain.
I hope that you find this information helpful and convincing. You can find a useful summary of this information at the DAR website, specifically here: http://services.dar.org/Public/DAR_Research/search/ If you enter only the first and last names, all documented patriots of that name will be your search results.
|KJones||Lillian Pauline Carey Lebow|
Lillian Pauline Carey Lebow Find A Grave # 155179849 has been attached to the wrong Carey family. Daniel and Willa Carey are my Grandparents and Bessie Carey is my Mother I personally knew all the siblings of my Mother and she was not a member of this family. This can be verified by checking the 1900,1910 and 1920 Jasper County Georgia Census.
Some years ago a man I think her grandson contacted me and asked if she was a member of this family and I told him no. Someone on ancestry added her and then others have copied the records like they do so therefore the wrong information is out there. I wish I knew where she belongs but unfortunately I don't.
Thank you in advance for removing her from this family.

I believe that I know who the Susan E. Brown is that you have been looking for. I have been looking for the parents of a Susan Brown Skaggs in my line. And when I read this that you wrote on her memorial page: "A hand written obituary for her brother Benjamin F. Brown d. Mar. 14, 1909, stated he was survived by a sister, Susan Shagge of Kansas. The name could have been Shagges. So evidently she married and moved to Kansas and did she live in Miami Co. like her brothers Andrew, Benjamin and Alexander P Brown?" I feel very confident that these Susan Brown's are the same person. Look at memorial #60858179 and let me know what you think.

You are welcome! I posted a photo to her memorial today.
|Sofija Saputiene||RE: Duplication of memorial!|
Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. As you know it can be easy to overlook something and get a duplicate! I have removed the memorial and thank you again for letting me know!
I was able to visit Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Colorado Springs, Colorado and photograph the grave marker for Relva. I have added it to her memorial. There is no date of death placque.

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for adding the Waldron's to this site. You have allowed me to locate some family I was tracking. I am related to the ones in Le Boeuf.
|jessicado||RE: Clara S Sanford Warner|
Hi Waunita - sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I cannot seem to find the photo anywhere even though I am pretty sure I did not send it to relatives already. I have searched a few times though now with no luck, so I've given up and wanted to let you know. Sorry!
You are very welcome. It was my privilege to take Mr Brown's headstone photo for you.
