I have been working in my family genealogy for several years. I am very interested in learning something new about my ancestors. I love stories of the good ol' days and the family members I have found who fought in the Civil War as well as many other wars. I enjoy learning the history behind old churches, cemeteries, and cities. I am researching the Surnames: Boyd, Logue, Morgan, Brock, Moppin, Neal, Wright, England, Shannon, Edmiston, McCarver, Elkins, Putnam, Drake, Hull, Dorsey, Nash, Wilcox, White, Mason, Poe, Johnson, McDonald, Worley, Fritts, Cooper, and Tanner. I enjoy hearing from others who are researching the same families that I have been. I learn so much from those I talk too.
Old Baptist Mission You have listings which are listed as Old Baptist Mission and many are also listed in Weddington Cemetery. I was told my some researcher and historian for the area that they are one and the same. Can you fill me in our your research for this cemetery? I live near the Oklahoma, Old Baptist Mission Cemetery which is located as the crow flies not too terrible from Weddington. I do research for the Cincinnati and Wedington area plus Westville and Watts and this is very interesting to me. Please let me hear from you. Glenita Guthrie.
RE: Outland/Fritts Hi Jordan, Evidently I am a total slackard. I have been on here doing a lot of research on my daughters paternal line for the past month and just thought to read any messages. I have done a lot of research on the Fritts line in connection to my Kitts/Outland line. I have tried to run out the Kitts line to find a female line to have mitrochondial DNA ran to see if for certain Hannah and Missiniah were sisters. However, Hannah had no surviving daughters to have daughters so it is a moot point. I would love to exchange information with anyone who is interested. My mom took a trip down to Arkansas last year and found John Kitts who evidently also went by Jackson and she brought back a copy of his will. Hannah and Missiniah are not listed as inheriting but Lewis did as well as mentioning the rest of his children. We do not know who John Kitts' parents or Jeremiah Outlands' parents are. They are our brick walls. Years ago we found where Jeremiah was discharged from the Quaker church for marrying outside his faith but that was before the days of copy machines being available at the libraries. lol I would love to exchang information with you or anyone else that would like. If you would like look us up on Facebook and join our group.
RE: James Thomas Neal Hi Cousin, I am trying to get all James Thomas descendants that have passed away connected on Find A Grave so I really appreciate your transfering management.
Do you have a tree on Ancestry? I just participated in the Autosomal DNA test and have had the results returned with a match linking Talitha Counts. I will be ordering another test for the Y lineage and will have my brother tested. My tree on Ancestry is The Neal Tree. There are several Neal Trees but I use my name so that mine is easily identified.
