:) I hope we can start a new trend in sourcing, LOL! Since a couple of my major lines have books on the surnames, I have to try to see if I can follow the work that was done, but since the work was done back when people had to use documents and church records that I can't easily get to, some I have to take on faith/or instinct.
I'm glad I joined the group, a nice group of people so far. :)
Thanks, I hope to one day have names for the people in all of the pictures. That would be huge for me. These are pictures my grandmother had and she passed away before I really took an interest in my ancestors. Here's a thought, if they were slaves, which I highly suspect, how were they able to have such nice clothes and take these fabulous pictures??? Were they considered "fancy girls"? Oh as for Henry...nada. I didn't know his name until I started searching for Mahala. Check out my ancestry.com tree, it will show everything I have to date.
I only know of the 4 girls. If there was a son, I'm not aware of it. I also don't know when Molly left Kentucky. She died 9/6/1940. She was still living in Kentucky in 1910 (she lived with Mattie). My guess is that she moved to Wisconsin when Mattie moved. I haven't found that date yet.
