RE: Nantmeal Methodist Cemetery
The clippings files are fun. The Vault is the back room, where they keep things they want to take special care of. Ask the librarian to help you find things. Everything is old school- files, card files, etc.

I won't be there tomorrow. Good Luck

RE: Nantmeal Methodist Cemetery
I won't be there this Saturday, but yes, that is a day that I go. The cchs is open Tues - Sat in July and August 9:30 to 4:30.

Let me know what day you are going in advance so I'm sure I'm there.

Property searches are better done at the CC Archives on Westtown road, although the CCHS has some information.

RE: Nantmeal Methodist Cemetery
Hi! I do not know if I will be much help to you. Yet, I will The Tri-County Heritage Society (located by Twin Valley High School, Elverson) at 610-286-7477. They have quite a collection of cemeteries (and their occupants!) and maybe they may have some history on the cemetery.

Also, they do have some family genealogies on file. Does not hurt to ask if they can check it out for your family.

When it comes to the cemetery itself, have you tried calling the office? Their number is 610-469-8655. They should be able to help you or point you in the right direction at least.

Hope this helps you out. Also, Chester count has a historical society as well.

RE: Nantmeal Methodist Cemetery
Hello Jean: Sorry to say I don't know who has the records to Nantmeal Methodist. It's been years since I've been there and when I did I just photoed the stones and didn't talk to anyone.

RE: Flowers for Joseph West

This is Joseph West married to Jane Owens of Chester Co., Pa. Joseph was the son of John West born 1690 England. I descend through Joseph Wests son Isaac West and Rosannah Lewis. I am in the West DNA project and have matched to Joseph's son Owen West. Also an exact match to a Sam West (deceased) who believed he was from Samuel West born 1732 son of John West.

Saw your flowers for Joseph West. Are you a descendant?

There was no Atkinson Co. GA in 1900 so I choose to leave the county of her birth/death off.

RE: William Tison
William Tison/Tyson. Very difficult to confirm info on him except for census and church records when he was assessed a fine. Other researchers with little or no references add: middle initial of H or N, b. 1818 or 1820 in Bryan Co., Ga, d. Florida before 1870, CSA yes. Married Elizabeth Taylor during 1838 in Tattnall Co., GA, her father served as a courier during Was of 1812.
The last census William was found in was 1860 GA Berrien Co., his widow Elizabeth and children were found in 1870 GA Brooks Co. The family also lived in the area of Irwin, Dooly & Wilcox GA

RE: Wiley Tison
Hello Jean,
Wiley's brother that is in my direct paternal line was William. Tison/Tyson b @1818 d before1880 was married to Elizabeth Taylor daughter of Jacob & Sarah Higgs Taylor. Very difficult to find info on Wm.
William & Elizabeth's son Payton P. Tyson - Find A Grave Memorial# 41253576 photo of him, links and other info on page. The family name has close to a dozen variations over the last few centuries.
Haven't used any DNA research, this is more confusing to me than the old fashioned type of research.
Have been concentrating on linking other sons of Cornelius to his page.
Thank you for your info, will be flat to share what I have documented.
