Hi Barbara,Job Richard Monds was my 3rd great grandfather.Your father is right the branch that connects the Monds family to the Fryars is George Washington and Nancy Elizabeth Fryar-Monds. George is the 5th child born to Job R. and Sally Smith-Monds. George married Nancy 2-Oct-1849 in Wauhatchie, Hamilton, TN - they were my 2nd great grandparents.Nancy was the daughter of Jeremiah and Martha Lovelady-Fryar of Wauhatchie.George and Nancy had 4 children - their eldest, Jeremiah Spencer Monds, is the father of your Richard Alexander Monds.I have info that Alma Davenport is Richard's 2nd wife, his first wife was Ada Watts.Richard and Ada had one son, Carl. Richard and Alma had 12 children --Ernest, Jeremiah "Jerry" William, Mattie Louise, Frances, Lewis, Martha Arlena, Ezell, Estell, Mary Catherine, Edwin Earl, Raymond and James.I believe we are researching the same Monds family and I would be delighted to share any info I might have of interest to you. I would like to receive what info you have and would consider sharing with me. Thank you, June "Penny" Cooper Maybe -- a cousin somewhere down the line.
