Found your family in my tree
Hi again Shelley,

I found your family in my tree. Your maiden name is Burdiss, married to Troy Richard, and you two have three kids together? So that would make Troy descended from the Ralph Rider and Mary Jane's daughter Doris. Is this right?

RE: 71521855 - Tacy Rebecca Wyer Morris
Hi Shelley,

Is your husband descended from Mary Jane, Loy, or Arlene? I would love to get more information from you.

About Tacy's profile, while I would like to maintain it, I don't want to force you to part with it if you don't want to.
If you ever decide to give up find-a-grave or you are not interested in maintaining your profiles from the Wyer and Morris families, just pass them along to me, okay?

Thank you.

Would you please transfer this profile to my care? She was my great-grandmother.

Thank you.

Shelley, Transfer made - I am a firm believer that these memorials belong with some type of family. My great grandparents were from Lewis County, Kentucky. Perhaps they knew each other. Barb

Let me know if you need any help on the Beard/Baird line. I haven't worked the Wolaver line much.
