Re: [genpcncfir] John T. Carraway
- Dear Marcia,
Here's what I have from my cousin whose male great
grandparent John Carraway.

from another cousin.
Then she mentions a third whose name she thinks was
Joe Henry Carraway but not a brother of her
grandmother Louise Braxton, my cousin and great aunt.
I think he must have been a child of one of Cousin
My young cousin who is the grandchild says that her
Uncle Robert Carraway was really there for her after
our Cousin Lester Green Braxton, her grandfather,
died. She said that he became a second grandfather to
Obviously we owe this family a tremendous debt for
its love and support. I do hope that someone who knows
them lets them know that we will always cherish them
for their loving kindness to one of our own.

If you can't talk genealogy with a fellow researcher, who can you talk to?
It is interesting that the name, Mourning is spelled Moring is Alabama now. It is the older spelling [Mourning] in North Carolina.
My research name of McLawhorn, which is NOT the original spelling, but it became
McGlowen in Alabama, McGlawn in Georgia & Mississippi, McGlone in Kentucky.
That's the family. You are right: He would be listed as J. G. Morning; J.
G. for James Gillespie. Today, the name is spelled Moring and pronounced that way by the citified part of the family. Older records spelled it Mourning,
and my parents and grandparents pronounced it that way.
