Hello Gerry Hillg

I am sorry if I have offended you and I sincerely apologize.
I know that every detail I can add about my family is a blessing to future generations. With cremation on the rise related to the economical factors this is all that may remain for future generations. I appreciate everything you do with find a grave and as long as it remains free many can link their ancestors.
Once again I apologized for for the intrusion into your personal life

RE: Lydia Causey
Hi Gerry,
Thank you for replying so quickly!
My mistake, I have a Joseph Thomas Amos married to a Lydia Causey, I guess there was more than one Lydia Causey that married a J. Amos.
So Sorry for the confusion.
Thank you so much!
Take care,

Lydia Causey
Hello Gerry,
My husbands family line is of the "Amos" family.
You have Lydia Causey #56959387 as being married to a 'Charles "j" Amos. I wasn't aware of his first name as being Charles, but as a Joseph Thomas Amos. Do you know if Charles is a nickname?
I'm just curious, because of my following of the Amos family line.
You can contact me here on 'find a grave'.
Thank you for your time.

RE: Name Change
Yes, you are correct, we have found that there are all kinds differences when you are researching genealogy. Illiteracy, stubbornness, and sometimes I wonder if some folks were just downright ornery and didn't care what information they gave or if it was correct! We are dealing with that now for my husbands mother's side of the family which is really dealing us fits because her maiden name was Nelson, and her mothr's maiden name was Jones. What a nightmare! I've also learned not to trust anything other people put in their family trees unless I have the documented proof because people tend to copy other peoples information as fact with no proof!

Near as we can tell our Armer/Armour line first settled in Isle of Wight. Carolinas, Tn, Kentucy, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri is pretty much my husbands line going straight back from him. I know that some of the siblings of those earlier settlers went into Georgia etc, but I didn't research any of them. Being so new to genealogy (about 4 years) I have not branched out at all. Also I have a bad habit of getting side tracked and jump back and forth between searching some of my family, and some of my husbands mothers side. But my primary focus has been on the Armer's. We also like to go to cemeteries and have spent some time doing that.

RE: Grave picture
Hi Gerry,

of course you may use the Noah Armer/Armour grave picture.

Noah Armer/Armour was my husband, Roger Armer, 2d great grandpa. He was born in I believe 1841 (don't have my records in front of me, going from memory)In Hardin Kentucky. He, along with his parents and several siblings moved to Virden Illinois, He married a Mary Jane Doty, they had three boys, the youngest, Owen, died as an infant and not long afterward, Mary Jane (Doty) Armer died. Noah remarried to Elizabeth Ann Ramsey, they moved to the Deerfield, Missouri, Ft Scott, Kansas area (along the border between Mo and Ks, had several children and there died and are buried at Everygreen Cemetery, in Ft. Scott. Interesting story about the name. My husband descended from Noah and Mary Jane Armer, son James Armer, to Alvin Armer, to Vernon Armer, then my husband Roger Armer. Therefore th spelling is Armer. After Mary Jane (Doty) Armer died, and Noah remarried, the story goes she did not like the Armer spelling and changed it to Armour. All of Noah and Elizabeth's kids are ARMOUR and Noah and Eliza are buried with Armour on their tombstone.

Probably more than you wanted to know but this is the main reason we got into genealogy research is because my husband had been told the spelling of the name had been changed and we set out to find out when and why. Noah's father, Dempsey Armer and mother Rutha Jane Armer are buried in Virden Illiois and their markers are ARMER. Several of Dempsey's siblings use Armer, several Armour, and some of Noah's siblings also use different spellings. We have copies of wills for Noah's grandfather and great grandfathers and they were illiterate, and there is question of the correct spelling even back then.

Thanks for you interest. Would be interested to know your connection!
