No rain in sight for us the rest of the week - in the mid-70's. Been fairly dry for a bit.

Not sure if I sent you the info on Olive's husband - Peter Tough. Got a response from New Zealand..... hope I sent it to you. If not, will put it in HER edit.....

I LOVE bacon and tomato sandwiches!

I've forgotten to ask - hope you don't mind - are you related to the Wright family?

I've gotten every message and have tried to delete it, though I don't understand why you would want to...people doing research would much rather have a more reliable source than just typed words, especially an older appreciate you adding the memorial of one of my husband's ancestors though...have a great day!!

RE: Family
I truly appreciate the info and I understand completely. I honestly never knew - but will do that; not only for you, but for all my future replies to anyone on f-a-g.

Thank you so much for letting me know AND doing it in a very kind way..

Just trying to figure out how to get the info to you. Have not heard from 'the gentleman' who's wife as Melissa 'Daugherty' - but not ours.

If I hear anything, will use this venue to pass it on. Also checking with Macon Pub. Lib to see if there happened to be anything on Mary Ann' interment once her son, Summers, brought her back from Montana.... Perhaps know something next week.

Just sent a reply to his site asking if he had any questions

.... in the meantime - found this surprise and it's all because of you :^)

Like a bolt of lightening .... I don't think our Olive married Mr. Huff as I just found. In 1900 'Huff' is married and has a family;

I 'think' birth for Olive Tough may be in the 188o census - disguised as Melissa 'O' born in 1876 and in the 1880 as being 4 yrs old - Melisa O and

OUR Olive [by that name and cited as a milliner' is in Montana living with her mother in a 1905 Directory

---- cannot be in 2 places at same time :^) she never married 'Huff' in Lee Co., VA.

She could have married Mr. 'Tough' and still had time to have a 12 year old child in 1922 when she died......

I'm too excited at the possibility...

RE: Fountain Daughtery & Mary Ann Wright's marriage.
I've become a bit confused; lots of things going on. This is the info on MA's marriage to 1st. husband

I think if you check the d/c for the Mary Ann who married George Burton - you'll see that she was classed as black.

Seems our MA died in Montana, but brought back home to be buried in 1909. Found her in 1900 business directory in Montana underneath another Daughtery [who worked at a brewery].

RE: Fountain Daughtery & Mary Ann Wright's marriage.
Hi.... Just found this

It's Mary and it appears she may not have remarried - OR she choese to be buried as a Daughtery. Either way, the parents are the correct ones.

If you find something else for her, we can 'chew on it' for a bit....

RE: Fountain Daughtery & Mary Ann Wright's marriage.
Thank you for your kind offer. Any kind of reference that you can share would be so greatly appreciated. I like to have sources [even retyped] that can cite the original info.

If you like, you can send it to my email - Seems like my only way of receiving documents that matter..

RE: Fountain Daughtery
I don't subscribe to Ancestry though I am sure my memorial info. & photos have found their way onto the site. Not related to Fountain Daughtery's wife that I know of but I do have 42 memorials for members of the Wright family. Do you have any info. on William Valentine Wright (see mem. #39610899)? He is related by marriage to my husbands family.

I've looked for the William V Wright in my database - after seeing his memorial - but I don't see the name :( I have 35 William Wright's scattered all over the country - with various middle name/initial - but not WV.

If you would like to see my tree, I can send you an invitation to view it [it's only good for my site], but price is right $0, if there's an interest. Not obligated.

I know that I have family in Missouri, but none that I can connect to yours - except the Mary Ann [my 2nd cousin 2x removed] we discussed - daughter of Summers and Naomi > Evans Wright [and Rebecca Summers] > Richard Wright, Sr. who is my 3x GGF

RE: Fountain Daughtery
Aargghh! MISSED that one - BURTON.

If you are related, I have info on her WRIGHT family to share here that takes her huge Wright line back to the first of 'my' line in Maryland. So far, nothing any further back.....

Thanks for 'making me look' again :^)

Do you have any possible idea why he and wife, Mary Ann [Wright] were not buried together. I know 30 years is a long time to be 'separated;, but she never remarried.

RE: Thanks for the edits you sent me.
Family Search is the largest genealogy website in the world. It is free. Just create an account by putting in minimal information on yourself and mark yourself as living. Then you can use the link or just the person's name to find your family members and others. Other than yourself, put only living people into the site.

She married Charles Warren June 23, 1933. He was my family connection so I don't know when she married Mr Boyd

Hello, Thank you for pointing out the bad family link which I did not add. Fred Bird's mother's name was Elvira. I have had numerous memorials hijacked.

RE: Please remove obit. added as a photo.
Not a problem - you do have Dale listed as a son of both of Carol's parents which, by this obit and the one in the bio - appears to be wrong. He is listed as a half brother to Carol.
