Dae, by any chance do your ADAMS hail from Maryland? I am working on ADAMS who resided in Baltimore County beginning about 1650. I have not ascertained where they could have migrated to in the 1800's as my present focus is Baltimore history up until about 1812.
Dae Dahling! I was reading your weekly newsletter and as I always do - I click over to visit your website to catch up on news.
I was thrilled when I happened to spy with my little eye my blog badge! I had no idea you actually read my blog??? Coming from you sir, this is an honor. I don't know if you noticed, but I do show up to your chats. Yes, lurking but still find them full of all kinds of useful information.
I just wanted to say thank you. I am going to go now. At the rate my head is inflating it is possible I may not make it thru the doorway!
Thanks Dae for the invite. My cousin Ellen mentioned the chat to me and just as i was about to sign on i got a phone call - i hopped on long enough to see her saying goodnight - i'll be back - thanks again ~
Thanks for being my first friend. I have a lot of relatives in Texas. My great-grandfathers brother left Georgia in the 1850's and took his family with him. The last name was Ballew. Have a nice day Cindy
This is kind of wierd, but it was thought that maybe his dad was Ruben Moren, and maybe Ruben's dad was Abner Moren. They had slaves and it shows a part where Ruben Moren had a women and two little kids black 40 women, and two 4 year olds, later it looks like this women was his wife, in a census where they didn't bother to right the race down. This has really been concerning me, and I do not know how to find out. It looks like the kids were James and Joice Moren. I don't know how this could be, and I would like to know if there is another answer and if my ignorance is playing with me.
I think so. My grandpa was born Nov 4 of that election year and my great grandparents voted for him. I have these: 1910 United States Federal Census
1870 United States Federal Census
1920 United States Federal Census
1850 U.S. Federal Census - Slave Schedules
Arkansas Census, 1819-70
1840 United States Federal Census
1830 United States Federal Census

My Powell's were in Alabama we have been as far back as 1799. If they had Indian or not I do not in any fact or percentage. : ) I'll check out your site too : ) The person I would like to know about most is David Clark Moren. I want to know the nationality of my dad. My moms lines go to Europe, but my Dad's end here except for one leg on his mother's side goes back to Europe. There is still a whole lot we do not know.
Do you have a relation to the Powell's in my tree? A relative from Texas told me she belived Emilie Augusta Powell was part Cherokee. I belive her father was John Powell, and I found a John Powell that was Chactaw, but his case number showed he was from a different state than the one I have. It is like I told my Aunt, it seems like the equivelent of saying your arn't Mexican unless you were born in Mexico, which is kind of true, and kind of not true. This has really confused me.
Wow. I see that we have a lot of simular names in our family tree. I am relativly new to this. I still need to go through a lot of hints in my family tree and delet things. I am fairly sure parents, grandparents and such are right, however, I think I picked up a lot of doubles of the kids. I've just figured out the fast way to see them, and delet the extras. I was doing it the really slow way and didn't know it : )
I don't know what you are all about, but I hope to learn something new to help me to at least gather a few helpful positive responses in my genealogical research. It is so discouraging to continually get negative responses. JOYCE
Thank you for the invitation to join.I hate to admit it,but I'm no good at discussions.I"m a hands on person(physically show me how or what to do and I'm OK).I am excited finding your site.Here's hoping we can help and learn from each other.Dae,I have read your comments on EOGN for the past few years.It's nice to see you at last.
Thank you Dae Powell; I am new to this and have found a lot of information thanks to the convenience of Goggle. I have been able to go back to the 1700s on one branch of the family and am eager to find new information and knowledge.
Dae, I missed every single posting of your chat "Analyzing Conflicting Evidence;" no matter how much we resent it, the outside world does sometimes conflict with our study/pursuit of Genealogy. But I noticed that ShoeString Genalogy has a discussion about Evidence. Is this mostly the same material?
Dae, thanks for being my friend! I had seen you around on here before but just now checked out your profile page. I was so surprised to see that you are the person behind ShoeString Genealogy! A site I have loved since the first time I saw it.
