Bio and Links
I am seeking to identify and locate "all" of my grandmothers and grandfathers that have lived in the colonies or USA. I also try to include my Aunts, Uncles and first cousins for each generation. My direct Cary ancestors first arrived in VA about 1663, they moved to MD in 1668, then on to DE, then through Ohio and now rest in peace in IL.

Clarence Creighton Parents
Hello Walt. Thank you for submitting an edit for Clarence Creighton, Find A Grave Memorial# 162823128. I believe you have the correct father, but I'm having a hard time validating the mother. Susanna Frye Creighton would have been less than 18 at the time of Clarence's birth. In addition, the 1900 census claims she and John Wesley Creighton have only been married 8 years, not the 16+ required for Clarence to be her son. In addition, in 1900 Susanna says she is the mother of 2 children, one living, and the living child would be her son William Ralph Creighton.

Do you have further evidence to support Clarence's parentage? I will be fine adding his father but not his mother with the evidence currently present. I do not add family links to step parents, without explicit request from immediate family.

Many Thanks,
Beth Martin

nice to meet you, sort of. James Melvin Truax was my great-grandmother's brother. Her name is Bertha Polena Truax Davis. She and her sister married Davis brothers,Snowden W Davis and Jacob Frances Davis,Jr for Eva. Bertha is also buried in Oakwood # 57118725. Although the tombstone has her date of birth wrong.

Walt, send me your e-mail again so that I can write you about finding her grave. I thought I had it but my e-mail came back undeliverable. Just send me a note on James Jones' memorial, 122106946. Thanks.

RE: Iola Pierard
Hi Walt. Well things are getting interesting here. I really don't know too much about my Aunt Iola except what I passed to you before but I am interested----I don't know anything about the name Burns. Iola Carter Pierard, had a son named Henry. She was either a half sister or something to Eleanor Wyatt. Henry or Sonny as I knew him was about 12 years older than me, about the same as my brother (I came along late). I just always considered him my cousin didn't even know his last name was different from mine. Aunt Iola and Sonny were dark skinned--I didn't think about that difference either because my mothers parents were from Italy and they were a little dark as well. Sonny passed away several years ago and I his wife has also passed. I may have to see if I can locate any of their children-they are in California. Keep in touch. Have a wonderful weekend and take care. carol

RE: Iola Pierard
Hi Walt. My Uncle Victor Pierard married Iola Carter. That was her married name and the maiden name was Peeck (not really sure of the spelling) Don't know of any other Iola Pierard's from Gillespie. My other aunts were, Reba, and Gertrude (aka Gertie) cb
