RE: Hi
James, Thanks for being open with me and taking the time to explain your reasoning. And you do sound like you are much more of a professional ancestrial researcher. This is the only tree I've ever attempted. So I will take the time and effort to see where I might have gone astray. The Owens' are my father's side of the family - my name is Barbara Belle Owens and email address is I would appreciate reviewing your research and comparing it to my data. Will get back to you on where I find the differences.
It appears to be in who we see as Noah I, II, III,
Noah I 1802 Noah II 1829 Noah III 1853
SP Malisia Mary E Harrison 1.Clara H Gallop
2.Annie E Sanders
3.Jennie Sanders

Will get back to you, Barbara

Bloff and Mary E. Owens
Hi James, I read your mail a few times, but not sure what you're really asking. You've probably already viewed my Noah I, II & III. According to 1880 census, Bloff & Mary's parents are Noah II
(born 1829) and Mary E. Harrison (born 1836). Bloff was their 7th son & Mary E. was their only daughter (named after her Mother) was their 8th child.

Noah III is Noah II's 1st son, born 1853. The c. 0f 1880 is the primary source, but all of the dates seem to be accurate for Bloff and Mary to be children of Noah II & Mary E. If I'm off base please let me know. I know everything in my tree is not accurate (just my best effort), but if you find an issue, pls let me know. My goal is to have accurate data & if you have sources to back it up Noah III as father, pls let me know.
Appreciate your interest, Barbara

Thomas Nelson
Hi Drew- I am a descendant of Thomas Nelson, father to Abraham Nelson, and I saw your post on Thomas's Find a Grave page (Memorial #77445286 - 1710-1768). I am also in belief that this Thomas Nelson is not the father of Abraham, as the connection to North Carolina from Massachusetts doesn't make sense - dying in North Carolina, yet buried in Massachusetts. You indicated that you had documentation to the contrary of that in the memorial. If you are willing to share, I would be most appreciative, as I would like to get this clarified to eliminate the misinformation. Thank you. I am also on Find A Grave, but my personal email is

RE: David Turnham
Your Welcome, if know where his parents are buried maybe he is buried there. I didn't find anybody in that cemetery with the last name Turnham.

Hi James,
I saw that you have added my photo of my great grandparents to this memorial for her (and husband Ira B Alexander). I neglected to add it myself apparently. I imagine you got it from where I added it back in 2010, as I have the original. I am just curious if you are related to her. She was my maternal grandfather's mother. Always looking for cousins!

RE: Cora Lunette Bennett Rush
I am sorry that I cannot help you. Her Granddaughter died in January and her children do not live her whether they would know, I do not know. If I come across a better obituary, I will let you know.

RE: Cora Lunette Bennett Rush
Hi Jimmy,

I am sorry her obituary did not list who her parents were, otherwise I would have listed them in her bio. Are you a relative? Her Granddaughter just died in January and we were in DAR together.
