I am so sorry that I did not see this until now!Usually the Gen Forum board notifies you when you have an answer to a message.But I did not receive one when you posted your message in reply to my post.I posted in 1998 and you in 2001 and now I am posting a reply to your in 2002.For some unforeseen reason I went to the board this morning and was overjoyed to see your post.
I am desperately hoping that you will see this.
Your grandfather, my Uncle "Ulyss", is a brother to my dad McKinley (Kin) Bottom.Their parent's names were Samuel and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Wells Bottom.Grandma Lizzie came directly from England and Granddad Samuel Bottom's parents came directly from England at the same time granddad Samuel Bottom's grandmother Mary Rhoades Bottom Clements came from England. Her Bottom husband, Jeremiah, died and Grandma Clements remarried to Samuel Clements who died in the Civil War.
I would be delighted to share information with you and pray that you will see this and respond.
