Southerland and McEvoy directory [9 November 2009]
Hello, I am a volunteer admin. I am sorry for the confusion with the title. There has been quite a community discussion on how to title directories. I was not aware of the community's decision. I have renamed the page accordingly. Directories were considered government records because they are place oriented. However, it was decided to treat them as books, because they are. Soooo, we list the publisher first, a period, then the title. That way with a directory such as yours, where it covers more than one local, the locals can be listed and the title isn't confusing.
Thomas Hall [2 November 2010]
After reviewing the available information on Thomas Hall, it appears very unlikely that he was born in Prince William County, Virginia. His father Edward Hall was clearly in Augusta County from his arrival/land patent in 1747 until his death in 1796. The information on him coming from Prince William was probably either "family tradition" or perhaps confused with another Thomas Hall.
There was another Thomas Hall in Chalkley's records, but this other Thomas appears to have been perhaps at least 10-15 years older and was not living close to the Beverley Manor area (perhaps around the outer Shenandoah area), where Edward Hall was located.
Hope this helps. You might want to remove the "Prince William" alt birthdate, since it doesn't seem to fit in this instance.

-- Best Wishes, --Cos1776 11:10, 28 October 2010 (EDT) p.s. - I am curious why you are not using the wiki's sourcing format for your sources?
OK, here goes. I firmly believe that we're confusing two different Thomas Hall's. One, son of Edward Hall of Beverley Manor was born in Augusta County in 1764. The other, was born in 1759 in Prince William County, Virginia. I have a candidate for the Thomas Hall in Prince William County, as follows: Thomas Hall.
The interesting thing about this Thomas Hall (not much info on him) is the information contained on his brother, Edward Hall's Revolutionary Pension Application:
The information contained seems to mirror much of the information contained in Thomas Hall of Prince William County's application.
So, I think we need to "go back to the drawing board" and determine which records can be positively linked to Thomas Hall of Augusta County and which ones we can positively link to Thomas Hall of Prince William County and later Montgomery County, Kentucky. At some point in time some researcher (perhaps well-intentioned) must have "thought" that the Thomas Hall from Augusta was the one that migrated to Montgomery County, Kentucky, but got it wrong....
Also, if you read this biography for Edward Hall, it looks like it is referencing Thomas Hall's (b. Prince William County) pension application:
I think if you compare the two paragraphs above, it is clear that Edward Hall, Thomas Hall's brother is the Thomas Hall from Prince William County (same county as Edward, just born two years apart), with no apparent connection to the Augusta County Hall's.
Anyway, that's my opinion at first glance, so if you have records to prove otherwise, please share them with me. I thing it's probably best that we just start e-mailing our thoughts, rather than filling up your talk page. My e-mail is: Delijim@aol.com
Look forward to resolving this little puzzle.... :)
Agreed, it appears that the DAR application referenced may be the one that has caused all the confusion.... I will also add an advisory on both person pages of the confusion. I've moved some of the other Thomas Hall's information over, you can move the rest, including the source information at your convenience.
Conklni family of Wayne CO, IN [20 June 2011]
Hi, I greatly appreciate the articles that you are adding on my Conklin family of Cambridge City. Thank you.--Sheri 21:35, 19 June 2011 (EDT)
Best Wishes!--Cos1776 10:05, 20 June 2011 (EDT)
I have no pictures. I am descended from Benjamin, Felix and Aaron Conklin's older brother Pierson who stayed in Butler County OH. Many members of that family lived in CC at least for awhile. If you live in CC you will find it interesting to know that Coyeta Miller (Mrs. Ernest Miller) is a great-granddaughter of Felix Conklin and was not aware that Benjamin and Felix were brothers. By the way, if the Conklin-Montgomery house there is ever open for a tour, let me know as I would love to see it. Sheri
Place titles [16 September 2011]
I noticed that you renamed the page for Clay Township. I renamed it back to Place:Clay, Wayne, Indiana, United States, without the word (township) in the title. We add township in parentheses to differentiate it from another town/city with the same name, which I was unable to find. Let me know if you have any questions, --Jennifer (JBS66) 11:10, 16 September 2011 (EDT)
john lewis hayes/ lewis lester hayes [28 December 2011]
Are you related to this person? I have been searching for years for info about him. Other than the name, i really dont see any resemblance to the person I've been looking for. He was my grandma's dad, and he left when she was really small, never to be seen or heard from again, she's always wondered what happened tohim. all we know is that he stayed in trouble quite a bit, and often changed his name. Do you think for some reason this may be the same person?--Meme2002 14:11, 28 December 2011 (EST)
Weaver's [23 August 2012]
I am the gg-grand son of Cornelius Weaver. My g-grandfather was John Henry Weaver.
I have his a wall with Christian (Christoper) Weaver trying to find his father. What family are you researching?
Tim Weaver--TimWeaver58 15:34, 22 August 2012 (EDT)
Since my father past away in May. I have been working the Weaver line. A friend of mine showed me the marriage record for Christian Weaver and Sarah Shideler in Montgomery County. I don't have that copy right now, but I will work on the references. I've seen a copy of the actual written record and other references in several different records since we found that it a couple of weeks ago.
I have been looking for Christopher for many years, because of the information in the Henry County book, and was not able to tie the two together, until 2 weeks ago.
I only have the lines from Christian to me. I don't have all the inforamtion on the siblings, but I have all the names.
Christian Weaver and Sarah Shideler
son Cornelius Weaver and Louisa Keller (Maybe,the 2nd wife) - son John Henry Weaver and Fannie Batchfield (Five Brothers) -- son William Marcus Weaver and Estella Lindamood (1-Brother, 1-Sister, 6 other wives) --- son John R. Weaver and V. Helen Enochs (1-Brother)
son Timothy L. Weaver and Cynthia L. Von Moll
I have 2 sons and a grandson.--TimWeaver58 10:00, 23 August 2012 (EDT)
Virginia families [13 November 2012]
I see you're "filling in the blanks" of many of the Virginia families that I've been working over the past couple of years. Keep up the good work! Up until recently, I've sort of felt like the "Lone Ranger", when adding many of the early prominent Virginia families....
Jim:)--Delijim 12:21, 20 October 2012 (EDT)
I've been noticing this too, and I gave up on werelate a long time go--and I'm the one who loaded in the intial Ball gedcom though I shouldn't have at that time. Long story. All that being said, probably the cited and researched site for the Northern Neck families--included Ball--is something a group of created at ancestry.com. It's a private tree called Northern Neck of Virginia Families. You are welcome to take a look at it over there. If you find it useful, contact the project administrator, Jim Bartlett whose contact information will appear on the home page. Good luck. Craig Kilby--Persisto 15:50, 13 November 2012 (EST)
Kelley in Maryland [9 December 2012]
My name is Bernard Kelley, decendent of Daniel Kelley born in Maryland 1774. I am trying to locate other Kelley lines who may be related. I had my Y-DNA done with some interesting results and want to find the other members of our Kelley line. If you have a male Kelley decendent living I urge them to have a Y-DNA test with Family tree DNA. If we are related I will be notified. Thanks for your time.--Bernard 13:28, 9 December 2012 (EST)
Frank Lackey, Indiana [22 March 2013]
I am not a blood relative of Frank Lackey, but my mother, Marie Dewitt, was adopted by Richard King Lackey in Richmond, Indiana in 1935. Richard's father was Frank Lackey and his mother was Josephine King. Richard moved his family to Miami Beach, FL in 1935. I was born there in 1948, and always knew Richard Lackey as my grandfather.
