RE: Keene
Thank you for the information Sandra! I had Samuel, Huldah, and Robert Lee, but had not dug for further information on them. Glad to know all of the connections!

Dora Keene, as I'm sure you know, descended from Samuel Louden Keene's brother, Joseph Todd Keene, and wife Cordelia Haynes. Dora married my grandfather, Worth Franklin McCulloch (b. 3 Aug 1882 or 1883 -- 2 death certificates with conflicting info! -- in Gaffney, Union Co., SC) on Dec 27, 1903 in Bonham, Fannin Co., TX. Worth was the son of Adam Goudelock McCulloch and Beatrice Duncan, grandson of Davis Goudelock McCulloch and Mary Elizabeth McCulloch (yes, they were cousins!). Davis was the son of William McCulloch and Hannah Goudelock. Deep roots in South Carolina for several generations back.

Dora and Worth only had the one child, Geraldine McCulloch (10 Mar 1905). Dora tragically died on Mar 22, 1907 when Geraldine was only 2. After her mother's death, Geraldine spent much of her time with her Keene grandparents and adored them. She married Julian McClung Moss and had two sons Joe Keene Moss (now deceased) and Julian McCulloch Moss.

Worth then married Mary Ethelyn Tignor on 28 Nov 1909 and she bore two children -- Worth Malcolm McCulloch (my dad who married Dorothy Mashek) and Gladys Marie McCulloch (married John Veale Wheat). "Daddy Mac," as the grandchildren referred to Worth Franklin, did not have good luck with lasting relationships. Mary Ethelyn died at the age of 44 in 1937 from breast cancer. Worth remained unmarried the rest of his life and died in Houston, TX on 22 Jan 1955.

I have spent my whole life correcting people's spelling of "MCCULLOCH" as well as the spelling of my first name. My dad was also VERY particular about the pronunciation of McCulloch -- making sure that there was a "k" sound at the end, in the Scottish way. He named me after his mother Mary Ethelyn, taking the "Ethel" out and joining the "Mary" and the "lyn" to come up with the different spelling of my name "Marylyn." Thanks Dad. Never in my whole life had a person spell either of my names correctly on the first try! :)

Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg. I have been researching all of these families for many years. If there is anything else that you would like to know, let me know! Thanks again for writing!

Dora Keene McCullough
Sorry to bother again, but Geraldine McCulloch was the ONLY child of Dora and Worth McCulloch. Geraldine was only 2 when Dora died. Malcolm (my father) was the child of Worth and Mary Ethelyn Tignor. Thanks so much for correcting. If you would like more information on our family, I would be very happy to share!! Marylyn

Dora Keene "McCullough"
Hi Sandra -- Forgive me if I have written to you before, but I am the granddaughter of Worth Franklin MCCULLOCH who was the husband of Dora Keene. It would be wonderful if you could fix the spelling of his name and also her married name (I am submitting edits on both of their memorials). MCCULLOCH is the correct spelling regardless of what a clerk may have handwritten on the document that you provided as proof of Dora's married name. Many people have misspelled our name through the years. Dora was Worth's first wife who tragically died very young. He went on to marry Mary Ethelyn Tignor (#47207019), my grandmother, and is buried beside her in Willow Wild Cemetery in Bonham, Fannin Co., TX. Thank you so much!!

Photo in Error
Though a lovely photo, to my knowledge, William and Cordelia Stark are not related. Christopher Columbus Reno is my gg grandfather. The photo must have been posted by accident. Please remove if possible.

Thank you
For the obituary of Mildred Keene Thain. When I read it I cried as she is a grandmother that I never had a chance to meet. I know she was very special. Wish I had a picture of her to see what she looked like.

Priestly HARVEY McBride
In memorial 28128631
You have his middle name as the widely accepted but totally erroneous Priestly Haggin McBride. There is an interview with his father in 1840 and he calls him Priestly Harvey McBride.
