Thank you for the great information about Lillian Bertill Gregg. I will place it in her individual biography file and try to figure it out. You are right, genealogical information is challenging to sort out and put together. I have made several memorial pages on this website for people who I have very little information about, in the hope that someday someone will see them while doing a search for their relatives or ancestors, and contact me to tell me that I am wrong about some details or that they have additional details to add. It's actually kind of nifty when I find out that someone who I have been not entirely sure even existed turns to have once been an actual living person. I never got to meet most of my relatives when they were alive because I come from a weird family, but I can still 'meet' them after they are gone, in a sense, by trying to put together their life stories to pass on to posterity.
I am working on a short biography to place on the memorial page for my great-grandfather Aaron Melvin Gregg (Find A Grave Memorial# 122782299). His son Franklin Melvin Gregg, Senior (Find A Grave Memorial# 88319589) married a woman named Lillian (Find A Grave Memorial# 88319616) who I believe may be related to you. However, on her memorial page here on the website, two versions of her name are shown. The top of the page shows 'Lillian Bertill (Dyess) Gregg,' while the photograph of her gravesite marker engraving shows 'Lillian Bertill Kelly Gregg.' Do you know which of the two names is correct? Is Dyess her maiden name? Is Kelly her middle name? What was her full name at birth? Was she married more than once? Please let me know so that I can use her correct name in the biography, as I have not been able to find any information about her in my online research. I never met any of the Greggs while they were alive, though they are on my mother's side of the family, so this is the only way I can learn about them. Thank you, and merry Christmas.
Hello and thank you I am granddaughter to Thomas Jackson Murray who I believe is grandson to William Jasper Murray. I really got interested in tracing my ancestors because of my blood type. My fathers side is no going anywhere for me- Smith, just too common. It was nice however to find info of realitives on my mom's side. Thank you for posting what you have learned. Maylee
James Jefferson Dyess David, I am researching my husband's family (Coppage). Can you tell me if mother and daughter married James Jefferson Dyess? From the memorials (46869463, 14595368, 14595384, and 46869481) it appears that Christiana Coppage Clements and her daughter, Virtie Clements, both married this Mr. Dyess. There is nothing wrong with that. I would just like to verify this.
