Source Page Titles [11 April 2009]
I am a volunteer administrator at WeRelate. I noticed that you created the following source page Source:1850 Federal Census, Cocke County. According to our naming conventions, U.S. county census sources are titled in the format: United States, State name, County name. XXXX U.S. Census Population Schedule. I believe that Cocke County is in Tennessee, so this source would be titled: United States, Tennessee, Cocke . 1850 U.S. Census Population Schedule. Let me know if I have the correct state, and I can rename this source for you. Thank you!--Jennifer (JBS66) 13:49, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
Next step: Review your GEDCOM [21 February 2010]
You're not done yet!
WeRelate is different from most family tree websites. By contributing to WeRelate you are helping to create Pando for genealogy, a free, unified family tree that combines the best information from all contributors.
Now that you have uploaded William Meredith Family.ged, your next step is to review what your pages will look like, review any potential warnings, and combine (merge) people in your GEDCOM with matching people already on WeRelate. You need to review your GEDCOM before it can finish importing.
Once you have finished your review and marked your GEDCOM Ready to import, one of our administrators will review your GEDCOM and finalize the import. This usually happens within 24 hours. You will receive a message here when the pages have been created.

Greshams and Mulkeys in Tennessee [9 April 2010]
I found your project through Twitter when Luckie posted your project on the A Friend of Friends blog. The Gresham name caught my eye. My husband is a descendant of Thomas Gresham and Dorcas Lane in Washington County, Tennessee. I have a copy of "Gresham Family Data" a manuscript of Dr. Albert Hiram Gresham's research. I found a mention of Rev. Jonathan Mulkey at Buffalo Ridge Meeting House.
Gayle Gresham--GayleGresham 16:53, 28 March 2010 (EDT)
Hi Gayle. Rev. Jonathan Mulkey is my direct ancestor. His descendants stayed in the area for two centuries so I've focused on Tennessee in my research. My Gresham link is only a legal one in my husband's Virginia family. A Gresham acted as guardian for his great-grandmother - and as you saw, bought slaves from her father's estate. Your Dorcas Lane must be related to Tidence Lane, another early TN Baptist preacher. If I recall his family was from Maryland and migrated through North Carolina, correct? Would you mind checking Dr. Gresham's manuscript for any Hampton references during the time of Tidence or earlier? I am trying to find the parents of Jonathan Mulkey's daughter-in-law Rachel Hampton. I haven't been able to make a firm connection to either of the East Tennessee Hampton families I've examined. I'd be so grateful.--Nolichuckyroots 11:39, 29 March 2010 (EDT)
Yes, Tidance Lane is the brother of Dorcas Lane Gresham. I looked through the manuscript, but I didn't see any mention of Hamptons in Tennessee or Maryland.Sorry.--GayleGresham 22:20, 3 April 2010 (EDT)
Thanks so much, Gayle, for checking. I really appreciate even negative information at this point. These Hampton's are a major brickwall.--Nolichuckyroots 13:59, 9 April 2010 (EDT)
