How I found this page ancestry messages with Kay a while back
I have spoken with you in messages via ancestry.com some time back. I just wanted to let you know that your work is very appreciated and I have cleared up so many questions from your work. My maternal grandfathers surname is Hayden, formerly Haden. I believe his aunt is the member that changed the spelling, but I don't know how to prove this. I have searched the courthouse and came up with nothing. Thanks again, for all of your hard work!

How I found this page Through Ancestry DNA Match
When We did the DNA Match and found you to be a cousin, I was/am very excited! For one thing you- unlike a lot of people-research information to the best of your ability before just throwing it on your tree. Boy, that can get really confusing especially to someone like myself who isn't well trained in any field other than Law Enforcement, in which I retired a few years ago. Now, back then and even somewhat now, I could tell you about the laws and even help with Pro-se Court cases-(do it yourself) LOL! But, That was then and this is now and I find myself going in circles sometimes trying to figure it all out! So, from the bottom of my heart- my sincere thanks to you and those who have helped you along the journey to find and trace our ancestry. May God Bless you all-Always!

With Kindest Regards,

Jaynie Marie Roy- Daughter of Margaret Ann Hacker-Roy and John Robert Roy Sr.

How I found this page "Surfing" and "Googling"
In researching my father's roots, I have wandered my way back through several generations and arrived at the Poindexters and Crawfords (via the Internet, ancestry.com, etc.). I, too, found much of the conflicting information about the Crawfords. Thanks for your clarifications! I am a seeker of facts and primary sources, and your research is very helpful as I continue to sort through all this information.

I may have written to you before but not sure. I believe I am a descendant of Edward Fuller of the Mayflower. My 4th great grandparents were David Green and Elizabeth (Betsey) Comstock. Sarah's parents were Samuel and Sarah Crippen Comstock. The Mayflower Society has proven Samuel ad Sarah Crippen Comstock. I am trying to connect Elizabeth Comstock Green to Samuel and Sarah. Sarah Crippen is directly descended from Edward Fuller.

I don't know if this is your line but any help you can provide as far as proof for Elizabeth and Sarah being daughter and mother is appreciated.

Thank you,

Thank you for answering a LOT of the questions I kept coming up with. How could there be two graves, two dates, tight fit for the Bollings, etc. May I copy a page and put it in my tree on Ancestry.com? I will not copy, post, or send anywhere unless I have your permission to do so. Would like others to see on Ancestry so they can stop putting in things that are not true or proven. I have started over twice due to questionable information and at this time I cannot finish with my two main families. Thank you so much for your research. Carol

Hi Kay,

We've corresponded before, but I haven't seen this page before. I was doing a google search on anything to do with Comstock and ran across your Leaves of the Tree: Comstock Family Origins - Part two website and there was a link there for this page. Part two intrigued me to wonder where part one is.

Hope all is well. Have been involved with eldercare for four years, but that is over now and just trying to settle the estate. I've had no time to do anything with genealogy for years.

Hi Kay, I find your website very interesting and was wondering if your Comstock family research includes that of the famous "Comstock Lode" that happened in the Western part of the country in the 19th century. My nana has told me that we're descendants of Henry Tompkins Paige Comstock and I'm wondering if I just stumbled onto a family member I didn't know that I had. Give me a message when you find the time I'd like to chat and find out if we are related. :)

At this point, I've resorted to constructing my tree from the trunk outward in an attempt to capture a bit of long-shared oral history. Also, I really admire the layout and organization of your work. To be sure, I am holding onto some of the information found on a Ratcliffe page where Craven County is discussed just as a frame of reference for my continued search. Thank you so much for sharing.

Since they were all from Tippah County, MS, I thought we might have a connection. She and Gpa Hays had a daughter, Georgia Belle Hays. I have been to Tippah in an attempt to do research. Fairly dry hole there. I did leave copies of my research there in hopes of helping someone else.

The Thomas Brown in your tree, is my great grandfather. Thank You so much! This has helped me tremendously. It is quite the coincendence too, that William Brown lived and died just miles from where I now live. My husband and I own land in Kentuckytown Texas, where he and his second wife Elizabeth lived.

I want to post a response myself because the Haden family is not associated with the Rudder or Rutter families as suggested in the previous post.
I strongly believe that Margaret Douglas was likely the daughter of a William Douglass who appears on the Quit Rent Rolls in 1704 from King William Co as, does a John Hayden. Both had been previously located in King & Queen before King William formed. The family you speak of arriving in 1720 in Pennsylvania would seem to be in the wrong place, as well as quite possibly the wrong time - and there is no early connection to a Rudder/Rutter family. Anthony Haden & his wife Margaret, and the next two-three generations were very devoted to the English naming patterns when naming their children - there is NO Archibald or Conrad Haden. The name William Douglas Haden is used over and over for generations. There is no obvious connection between the Haden and Rudder or Rutter families on this side of the pond in colonial times, it's a single marriage much later in the 20th century between Edith Attkisson and a William H. Rudder ...and her book is faulty in various ways. The old "Heydon Hall" that she has adopted as a family home for the Hadens was simply wishful thinking ...it's not the home of Anthony Haden's ancestors. Y-DNA has proved a different lineage. Also the Rudder family of her husband is not discussed at all in her book - it is about her father's families, Douglas, Haden, Churchill, Blakey, George, Perkins, Oglesby, & Attkisson, but not Rudder/Rutter.

How I found this page surfing
Hi Kay, May I suggest the Rudder family connected with your Margaret Douglas could be the Conrad Rutter family of Chester, Lancaster, and York Counties Pennsylvania. This Rutter family is associated with Lord Archibald Douglass and his sons, and a daughter Margaret Douglass who immigrated to the American Colonies in the early 1720's.
Best Regards-Bryan

My father was James C. Hardin (descended from Obidiah Hardin, Halifax Co. NC); my grandmother was Martha Mayberry (descendant of Frederick Mayberry, Peaks of Otter, VA) and my great-grandmother was Martha Clopton (descended from Wm. and Ann Booth Clopton). Sounds like "we're all kin." My sister lives in Jax and I recently moved to Howey in the Hills, Fl from Jax. We are both avid family researches.

We corresponded via email several years ago regarding the information listed for Leonidas Wilson, who is my ancestor. We were searching for his father and had some interesting thoughts regarding Lycurgus/Acurtis. It looks like you have done way more research on the Wilson's and I've done none. I enjoyed reading about them. Thank you.

Good job listing your data sources. It's the hard work of people like you that have helped me in my genealogy research. I recently acquired the will of Robert Walters Sr. The will described the location of their GA plantation (along the Tugaloo R. and Shoal Creek). That led me to Shoal Creek Baptist Cemetery, where Robert Sr., his son Peter, Peter's son John C, and John's son Franklin M. (among other Walters, Cawthons and Marets) are buried. If you never make it to that area, you can see an aerial view by entering the cemetery address into Mapquest.

My Walters lineage:

Luther (moved to Floyd Co, GA)
Henry Pinkney
Avery Hunt
Mary Jo (my Mom)

I also acquired the will of Moses Walters (above). When you view the handwritten name of Walters on the will, the 'cross' through the 't' also crosses the 'L'. With that view, it's easy to see how that could be interpreted as Watters (my Mom's maiden name).

Thanks again for the help!

I am the Great Grandson of Isaac Blackford Harmon, Jr. Your work has helped me to confirm many of the dates that were loose ends for me.
I am certain after going down many of the same roads you have traveled and sorting out many wrong turns that our ancestor was Jacob Hermann Harman B. 1705 in Germany.

Trying to trace my roots. My Great Great Grandmother was "Maggie Fry". It gets cold there. She had a son "Walter Atlas Frye" that was born in North carolina in 1871. No Father is listed. I'm trying to go beyond "Maggie". I am African American. However when tracing ancestors, it does not matter the race.

I have enjoyed reading through your information on Walters/Mcbee. I believe I am the ggggranddaughter of Noel Waddell who was married to Selety Walters. But I have not been able to prove it. I believe Noel and Selety were living in Caldwell Co. Ky. in 1850. My gggrandfather Marshall Waddell was living in Crittenden Co. at that time. Those counties abut one another. Any information that I have that might be of interest to you, I would gladly share.
