Macon, Thanks for answering and sending the new information! Especially the history of your grandmother's time with her brother in NY.I would be interested in the grandchildren of HV if you don't mind.I do usually retain the children of a (Clyburn) daughter but not usually the generations after that.
One question . . . I never had the date of the article on Richards anniversary and search for kin. Could never even guess at his marriage year/date.Do you at least have the date of the article?
I wish I could tell you more about D Jessie and James.
As for the Douglas/Long situation.I am going to replace the Douglas since you seem to have a truer record than a census guess.I had heard it before. For what we know, Long could have been a second marriage for the Elizabeth in the hh . . or the relationship is totally different.
I hope to stay in touch and if I find more will surely let you know. Barbara Roesch, CA
