We have e-mailed about family genealogy before or maybe I just found an e-mail to someone about Charles Richard "Dick" EPLING. He was my Grandmother Dola EPLING METZ's eldest brother.
You had listed: Charles Richard EPLING b. in 1899 (I have Oct. 1898)
William Taylor EPLING Mary NICHOLS
On three census (1900, 1910, 1920) I found William's wife and mother of children as Catherine, Katherine & Katie. I found an obit. from Grandma METZ's things that her Mother's name was: Mary Katherine. What a worry that was until last night!
Five brothers are listed: "Jack Nichols, Hotch, French, Robert and Wess". Do you know what their real names are, or is this accurate? Two sisters; Mrs. Vernie Benear of Clover and Mrs. Rosa Carpenter.."
Re: James EPLING Emily WILTSince I was a kid Grandma told me her grandma's name was Jean Wilt, b. 1850 died 1939. Is this another case of using a middle name as first ?
Also is James EPLING a brother to John WAshington EPLING b. 1851 (Virginia) married to Nancy McGLOTHLIN b. 1855?
What do you know about Charles NICHOLS/NICHOLAS and Eliza CARPENTER? Thank you, Deborah METZANDREWS
