By any chance....Would you have a date of birth for the daughter of: Sarah Jane (Wilmeth) Reid? She is listed as the daughter of Sarah (Shelton) Wilmeth. The date I have come across just has abt. 1828, which would make her 10 years younger than the mother, Sarah (Shelton) Wilmeth, b. 1818.

This leaves the possibility, that Sarah Jane Reid, may, be the daughter of Falby (Shelton) Wilmeth, and step-daughter of Sarah (Shelton) Wilmeth.

One of them is my great-great-great-grandmother.

I am working on the Shelton and Wilmeth [Wilmoth) lines, and making some progress. Very interesting people. Seems they may, very likely, tie to the same Nancy Ferguson in my husband's lines. Trying to prove she is the daughter of Brit. Commander of Battle of Kings Mountain, Patrick Ferguson.

The Sheltons, pretty sure they are the royal lines and trying to piece that together. I have the two Shelton wives as the dau. of Solomon Shelton b. 3-31-1790 and Christina McGuinn. I am working to cross-reference this, as well.

RE: Dr. Allen E. Walker
It looks correct now!

Dr. Allen E. Walker

I appreciate all you do on the study of preachers; however, I believe you mistakenly added a photo of Dr. Allen E. Walker's photo to his father's memorial [#30257179]. Allen's memorial is #30257191. I would appreciate you correcting this. These are my distant cousins.

In speaking with this cemetery, they have no records of his internment. Would you re-verify your records and let me know what you have for this memorial.

Sylvia Cox
Mate Robert Warren Bennett
Hello, Tom,
My name is Sylvia Cox, married to Phillip W. Cox, a 3rd great-grandson of Mate Robert Warren Bennett. In his family papers, Phil has a letter written by "Thomas Lee Childers" of Ripley, MS. It outlines the descendants of Mate R.W. Bennett and some further family history. The letter is not dated, but clues indicate it might be circa 1984. I wonder… are the author of the letter? I notices you added a photo to Mateland Robert Bennett's memorial. This is a photo I have not previously seen.
I would very much like to make contact with you.
Thanks for your response.
