HELP ON MINERVA MEDLIN
Yesterday I discovered this forum on the Medlin family.I have been searching years for a connection on my gg grandmother Minerva Medlin.In this forum I found a post from January 13, 1999 from a Laura Joanne Williams that cited a Minerva Medlin born 1844 that may have married M Hampton Craft, these two are my gg grandparents.I have a full print out of the descendency of John Henry Miles who married Mary Elizabeth Craft, daughter of the above couple.
From what I heard from now deceased family members around Pine Ridge, Minerva Medlin became pregnant but Hampton Craft ran off to join the Civil War and was never heard from again.I suppose it was a failed shotgun wedding.
I have a portrait of Minerva Medlin and a portrait of her daughter and would be more than willing to share.
Can anyone on here help me with a family connection?Also, I recall talking with an older family member born around 1925 that he recalled going up to a Medlin reunion when he was young.The reunion took place somewhere in North Carolina but he couldn't remember.
Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.I have the descendency scanned and can e-mail it to anyone willing to help.
Please call or e-mail me.
