Researching genealogy for the ancestors of Deuese Lorenzo Johnson and Ethel A. Mackey Johnson. Names of primary research: Kitchens/Kitchings, Mackey(NC, GA, FL) Johnson (of FL, NC & SC), and Corn (NC, SC).
I have also recently begun researching my own family. Names of primary research: Knowles, Jackson, and Mitchell (in South AL, FL and GA). Also, Rizzo, Retz and Swisher (in MI, IL and IN).
Thank you to all contributors to FindAGrave and especially to those who have documented my family members unknowingly or by taking volunteer photos upon request. That is what makes this website such a good Genealogy tool. Connectiing family graves via the links and adding genealogy info to the memorials brings added interest and makes research easier on those that follow. Blessings to you all!
Ruth Johnson Mackey Campbell Seley Checking on (Essie) Ruth Johnson Mackey Campbell Seley. She was married to Eugene Seley 1945, & they were divorced. This is the name on her gravestone. He had been married once before, & she was his second wife. I am trying to locate a daughter of theirs, Patricia Seley, my cousin. In one message by another cousin that does remember her, she calls her a "step-sister". I am wondering is Patricia used the Johnson or Mackey or Campbell name by chance & was not legally adopted by Eugene Seley but, went by the name Patricia Seley. I know this a shot in the dark but, do you know of anyway I could anything about her. She is not listed in the 1945 census year for Florida. And it is okay for you to say, there is no info on her, I will certainly understand. Barbara Anne Seley - Coll
Ben and Ellen Corn Hi Tammy, Edits made for Ellen Corn. Our informaton came from "The Transylvania Co. Heritage Book NC-Vol. 2-2008; the article was written by great grandson, Charles Pierson,(now deceased) Brevard, NC; researched by S. G. Roper. There are other Corn families in the book. We will transfer Ben and Ellen if requested; they are not related to us. Pat/Frances
Hi Tammy Hello I am Gloria's daughter Tammy. I have been building my family tree on ancestry.com and the links I have been following have us related to John Peter Corn. Have you found links to the same information? I am trying to verify that it is correct.
RE: N C Gillespie Dear Tammy, Thank you so much for your quick response. I think you are doing a great job at managing. I only noticed that the transcription was incorrect having recently visited my 2nd great-grandfather's grave. Nancy was my grandfather's second wife, she was not my grandmother. However, she was also married firstly to a relative on my fathers side. So she is enter twined on both sides of my family.
Lewis Pearl I went to photograph today but could not find him. So I checked with the office and they found the grave on their map. The man from the office walked us to where the grave is but there is no marker. There were no other Pearls around. I'm sorry! ~Tina
Re: Rev. Ed Corn Thanks so much for the kind words and finding my mistake listing the date. Sometimes the fingers works faster than the brain. If you would like, I would be more than happy to transfer his memorial to you since he might be a part of your relatives. Just let me know. Have a great day.....Poppy*
