Wow... thank you so much for your help.I really would like to see if it is possible to find mill or ruins of the mill.I think that would be interesting.
About Marion, those connections make sense to me.Too many things line up.Marion would have been fairly young when Martin Shaw died and maybe since his mother started taking the Futrel name again, Marion decided to do the same.That would also explain the difficulty of finding more information on him, because technically he is Marion Shaw and not Marion Futrel(If this all pans out).If it does pan out, then that would mean that my true lineage would be through Sanders-Shaw and not Saunders-Futrel. I plan on doing more research to attempt to get as many of the connections as I can straight.I also intend to go back to Ohpir with a new list of Saunders and Shaw names to try and develop more connections.I also want to contact someone about getting past the gate to the Old Thayer Mill.
His mixed up and rough childhood may have also been the reason for the Thayer's not wanting Marion and Queenie to get married.There is one question that still bugs me:Why did Queenie and Marion go to Jamestown, Guilford County?How did they afford it?Did Marion inherit land/money from some of his mother's past marraiges?Did Queenie inherit land/money?Did they buy land?All these things make me wonder.Queenie had alot of family in Montgomery County so why leave?Marion's mother was in Montgomery County, so why leave?....
Thanks again Don.I do not have any more information on Marion Elsie (Shaw) Futrell, but I definitely plan on doing more research to find out.Please keep in touch with any new leads or information you may find,and I will do the same.
