I'm sure you know exactly what the above message means, but you did NOT get it across.
What thing of what I said are you disavowing?
What are you saying about the Court Records of Carroll Co. that Vivian Typed up? No one has denied the existence of the typeup of the Carroll Co. records; they are indeed the basis of knowing that George and Nathan Rochell were in Carroll in 1828.They are the basis of our knowing that Asher, William Elisha and Jeremiah, their father, were in Carroll beginning in 1824?Again, what's your point.
We were just beginning in 1958, Vivian and I, and Tom Lincoln had been working about TWO years.(There is just ONE Tom Lincoln, unmarried his whole life, - now, if he yet lives, with Alzheimer's disease in a hospital.)Tom did a great job of collecting family data and photos from contemporary family, but a few things that he put out needed vetting for errors already known to the three of us, even then.
So what paper are you referring to that "my name is on"?I'm NOT a mind reader.You have to spellout the source of your fret so someone can know what's bothering you.
What's your point about Asia and Asher?These are obviously references to Asher Pipkin Fly, b. 1804.You're charging me with inconsistency, but you don't say enough to identify what I said then and what I say now that seems inconsistent.I WILL point out that I HAVE broadened my information base quite some since 1858. Many of my views are different now, - probably MOST, truth be known.You learn as you gain data and study the implications of newly-received material.
Now it's your turn to answer a specific question.Whatever gave you the idea that George Mitman Fly of Bucks Co., PA was the George in the 1828 Carroll Co., TN Court record?Are you saying that I said that in 1958?If I did I quickly learned otherwise, and indeed, YOU needed to stay in contact with me when you opted out over YOUR misunderstanding of my developing hypotheses.You decided I was as stupid as you had already declared your earlier correspondents when you dumped THEM.You are entirely too quick to declare everyone else STUPID and dump on them and dump THEM.
I'm fed up with your attitude. Your Chronology is almost done, but it will remain here in Montgomery until you persuade me of your basic good will in the team effort that is the Fly research. You have shown yourself entirely too quick to accuse me of this and that in vague general terms. This latest foray of confusion, putting George Mitman Fly in Carrol Co., TN. in 1828 when in fact he was not BORN until 1829 in Pennsylvania is the last straw.
When you learn to hold a written dialogue with someone and make points about what was said that you're answering, then maybe someone can see what your point is.But when you start out, "Jim, I never said such a thing." I haven't the foggiest notion what you're referring to.I am re-reading message #446 from me to you.Are you replying to the contents of THIS message? What did you disavow saying? That you had disinvited me to use your e-mail address? You DID, you know.
You are invited to answer that message #446 paragraph by paragraph. That message is FULL of unanswered questions. If I don't get detailed answers to my detailed questions, then our continuing in communication is an exercise in futility and frustration. I'm tired of this kind of unsatisfactory return on my time.I have better things to do than deal with someone who promises documentation, but does NOT produce it. Someone who WON'T be a part of the TEAM.
It's up to you whether we continue ANY dialogue from this time.
