Mary Catherine "Molly" Page Alexander
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.

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.

You posted family photos on Madison White Randolph # 70039743. The one with Madison and Mary Frances listed on it, Do you know who the other people in the family.

Are you kin to the Randolph family?

RE: Daniel Adrian Hill

I came across an 1860 census record for Mariah and her children, which include Adrian and Agness, along with Augustus, Elisha and Emily. I think that I am going to stick with my original names until something comes along to document any changes. I am wondering at this point who the father is; I had thought it was John Hill but am thinking otherwise at this point. William E could be the answer but I'm not too sure of that one either.

Please let me know if you find anything more.

Daniel Adrian or Adern Hill

Thanks for writing about Daniel and the possible name difference. I can't really say one way or another; much of the information I've collected on someone who is possibly the Daniel A Hill who married Alice Mary Ann Dowdy could actually be someone else with the same name.

There is an 1870 census record for an Adrian Hill with a wife, whose name is enumerated as July. Do you know anything about a first marriage for Daniel Hill to Martha July Holly? There are two children at this census: Elizabeth, age 9 yrs and Robert A, age 7 yrs. If what you say is true, Robert's middle name could also be Adern or Adrian but he died after 1870 and I do not find him in the 1880 census. Amanda Elizabeth Hill Brooks lived until 1936 and is buried in Oklahoma.

If you want further communication about this, please write to me at
