|Bio and Links|
I've been doing genealogy since about 2001. I'm mostly researching my parents families, Clark and Mooney. My mother's family goes back at least 5 generations before me in Gallia County, OH, so that's where most of my research time goes. Most of my entries are family, but not all. I'd be happy to transfer ownership of a non-family member to a member of their family. Other surnames researched include Houser, Mahan, Steele, Selvey, Bostic, Boggs, Means, and Hanks to name a few. I appreciate any corrections or updates.|

|Heather Herndon||Changes to Reba Jo Maynard Page|
I've been doing some research on my grandmother's family and I found the correct birth & death year for Anna Mae Lucas. She was born in 1929 and died in 2012. Can you please make those changes to Reba's page. Thanks :)
|Heather Herndon||Changes to Reba Jo Maynard page|
I was researching my family and found Reba Maynard, which is one of my grandmother's sister. On her page, you have my grandmother, Loretta June Lucas (Gillespie) listed as deceased in 2013. She is still alive so could you please edit this. Also, you have a stillborn girl between Anna Mae & Jackie. She wasn't stillborn, she was born with complications and only lived for a month. Her name was Helen Louise Lucas. Could you please update that as well. My grandmother is also trying to find Helen's grave. She says she is buried at Suncrest but we have never been able to find her. She is buried beside Reba & Leonard's daughter Donna that passed away at a young age. If you could help me in any way with that, it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hi Shelton, no I'm not related to any Mooneys. No Mooneys in my family tree so far :)

What a nice entry for him! I am confused by who his parents are, however. The narrative states that he is the s/o Richard and Mary Hinds Hanks. But the clickable link gives Joseph Hanks (1725-1793) and Nancy Lee Hanks (1728-1808.) I'm pretty certain Richard and Mary Hinds Hanks are correct. They are my 5g grandpar through marriages to Howell and to Orrison and to Nichols lines.

I swear this is the last comment. : ) Ford Hall was home to our Clark grandfathers and their wives since it was built appx. 1480 for eight generations down the line until our Clark grandfather immigrated to Va before 1683. I'd love to have that place.
George Clark of 1510 (our 12th great) m. Elizabeth Wilsford of Cranbrook. Her grandfather was James Wilsford 1461-1535...Sheriff of London. Many of the Clark grandmothers had fathers and brothers who were knights and dukes.

|K S||more Clark info|
...also Alexander Clark fought for the VA militia in the Revolutionary War as well as the war of 1812. He's listed on the DAR registry. A family friend did a great deal of research on the Clark line. She found proof sources going back to James Clerk abt. 1480 of Wrotham Kent. In the book Kentish Items, Wrotham a pedigree showed two more generations to John Clerk 1425 of Ford who m. Alice of Totesham. Ford Hall still remains today and was for sale last I checked. You'll find a lot of history at the St. George church in Wrotham as well. Brasses for our 11th greats, John Cartwright Clark and his wife Elizabeth Steed, still remain in the floor near the rood screen. It's the oldest St. George church in England. There are photos online for Ford Hall (Ford Place now), the church, and the brasses of which only 13 exist with 5 of them for members of the Peckham family...who the Clarks were intertwined with.

|K S||Alexander Clark, Sr. 1736-1794 connection to a William|
Each generation has more than one William. I don't have anything on Mary Jane Ferguson. Alexander 1736 had both a brother and a son. In Alexander's will he listed all of his children and all spouse's except for William 1771. It's safe to assume at the time of the will (June 12, 1794) he was unmarried at abt 23 years of age. I descend from Alexanders son, Samuel Clark, Sr.
