I was just saving that bit of info on Rutherford or Hayes, and found a mention of a some sort of work record with the railroad. It has tons of pages, I wondered if you were interested in seeing?

Its all page by page and not in a whole presentation since I can not figure out how to make a PDF.

I can send a few pages just to show you an example of it

Ya know we should get to emailing instead of this

RE: Richmond/Cemetery
"I can understand how he came to be called Rutherford Hayes Richmond. Allen's father, Samuel Richmond, Sr., had at least one meeting with the then, Col. Hayes, during the Civil War. The Senior Richmond sought protection from the Union troops led by Hayes to protect his mill and ferry from the Confederates. Col. Hayes declined but offered to arm and give rations to a company of men that Samuel Richmond would organize. That company came to be called Company A, 184th Virginia Militia. This was a Union regiment which disbanded before WV became a state and thus Virginia Militia is what they were known as rather than WV Militia."

WOW that is cool. I have all sorts of facts but no stories really, none at all. Except now i have the one above

We love wood heat and I've always wanted a wood stove to cook on. Not sure I'd like it in summer though

I'd be glad to share whatever I have. Not sure how to present it to you.

I can make a list of what I have which would basically be censuses, birth records, marriage and divorce, death records, military records. (I'm no good at making stories out of it)

Oh and I did have a few things on Allen's parents. Just a few though, nothing major.

I dont have a laptop so I dont have that possibility of easy theft but of course anyone can come in the house but we have two big horses (dogs) that would kind of prevent them from getting in here

Like I said I really need my stuff backed up again because I have just sooooo much on my family lines, both sides, but, maternal lines I've chased for a few years now.

The paternal side is from Tennessee way-and there are SOOO many duplicate names in their history and TN is not too forth coming with info free online but that was several years ago.

If I ever get to a point with the maternal side I might head back over there but I haven't even touched the Fuller side except for the main name line. I still have all the other related married in lines to kill but my current goal is to wrap up the main Fuller line. I'd say I am like 75% done with researching them but like I said before, I find something missing along the way and I'm off researching again-Its hard to organize all of this but that researching is so addictive!

Let me know if you think I might have something you can use

RE: Richmond/Cemetery
"He was dressed and looked like a ghost from the 1880'swith full length duster and big floppy western hat. We talked for an hour. I've met with him many times since then."

WOW, why did he dress that way?

Lost your computer? Oh I would be heart broken. I hope you do back ups now?? I do them occasionally and I am due soon

ATC Richmond and Rachel Bragg are Rutherford's parents. He used Hayes most of the time but Rutherford is more cool!

I'm up in central Michigan. Most of this side of the family is in Ohio and Michigan. I've had next to nothing out of these two states so moving onto W VA is getting more interesting-plus I learn more about the areas.

RE: Richmond/Cemetery
Ah...I have not gone past Allen since it really doesn't relate. I would if I came across the info. Just too OCD I guess.

Now I know who to go to on that cemetery. Do you live near by or related to the family?

RE: Richmond/Cemetery
Samuel's DC says he is buried in Sandstone. Walter was the informant on that one too.

I am especially wondering about Rutherford. I see that he died in Ohio and Walter was the informant there too and states Sandstone as burial place

I have a lot of info on the Richmond/Potter clan. The more related is Rutherford or Hayes' wife Cora Fuller. It was her third husband and I like the name of the family and her husband so I am pounding on their histories

Cora is way out there on the branch but I tend to go off the end in my research. I try to get things in order but then find something missing and there I am researching again

I imagine you've experienced the same thing

I'm off to bed. If you send another message, it will be tomorrow morning before I get to it

Thanks! :)

Allen Richmond and Rachel Bragg 1953

My relative is Rutherford Hayes Richmond

Just wondering if there are any Richmonds missing in their family cemetery.

Is there a possibility that daughter Cora Ellen is buried there? Her DC only states Richmond Cemetery...which one though

What do you think

Name Change
The name for my Great Grandma Goldie Victoria Foster Pritt is wrong her middle name is not Victoria it is Vevil. Her Find A Grave Marker is 111281517. I hope you don't mind that I went in and requested a name change so that way it shows Vevil instead of Victoria

RE: Malankford Enfield Bragg edit
Hello again

Hope your morning is going good.

I know the info is wrong in this case, as I said before (I think) that someone else might be searching to see if there is a memorial for these two people and find nothing that matches it and therefore creating a duplicate(s). (You know it will happen)

It was just a suggestion to avoid the dups. But everyone has their own way of doing things. :)

Enjoy your weekend
