I live in Yakima, WA. I've been pursuing family history seriously for almost 30 years -- almost as long as I've been married to my wonderful husband. He is not so much into genealogy, but is a good sport about my "addiction", even to the point of helping me look for relatives in cemeteries when we travel. I love meeting cousins, too.
Main family names: Boone, Mayfield, Short, Tate, Savage, Hughes, Graham, Slater.
Yes - there are several records of Mary - Mary J - and then full name including maiden name:
Milton G. Harbin was working the system!
I sent for his Civil War records as indicated on his tombstone as to the unit and company he was with, BUT I also found him in a book, "North Carolina Troops - 1861 to 1865, Vol. IV, Infantry" and therein he is listed with Company D, 6th Regiment, N.C. Mtd. Infantry and I wrote to the author and enclosed the copies I had sent for and he determined that it WAS the same person and that he would place a correct in his notes IF there were to be any future printings.

Emma (Savage) McGinnis #138496869 Doy, thank you for your request to add Emily as a nickname for Emma (Savage) McGinnis #138496869. As I see that you have the Savage name listed in your bio, I'm wondering how we may be connected. Emma's is my - soon to be 96 year old - mom in law's grandmother. This is the line: Emma (Savage) McGinnis (1858-1901), her daughter Ada Marie (McGinnis) Marney (1891-1963, then Frances June (Marney) Colby, born 1920. Any info that you can share would be great! :) Sunny
RE: Celestial Emaline Redfearn Yes, I don't usually agree with "trees" from another website. The other maiden name I have been given, and am currently checking, is Redfearn. So she was supposedly a Redfearn who married a Redfearn. We'll see how it checks out. Tricia
Celestial Emaline Redfearn I received your edit to add her maiden name was "Sinclair". Could you please send your sources for this information? I have received 2 edits with different last names for her maiden name. I will also do my own research on this subject, but if you would send sources, I would certainly appreciate it. Tricia
Jerry Myer Liebau I received your request to show Jerry's first name as 'Jeremiah'. After contacting his great grand daughter, she confirmed that his name is Jerry Myer Liebau, not Jeremiah. I will leave his name as it is. Thanks
