      I've been working on my genealogy a little more and am trying to track back the family of Benjamin Franklin McGlawhorn's (the one born in 1821) wife, Lois Jane Worthington. From what I've found so far, she was born on May 21, 1821 and died on May 8, 1922 and her parents were Robert Worthington and Mary Cannon. However, I'm not sure what Robert Worthington is her father. One source seemed to indicate that Solomon Worthington had a son Robert, but that date placed the Robert being born in 1841, which clearly wouldn't work. Any help would be much appreciated!

          Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

            Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

              Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

                if Narcissus was born sometime in the early 1900's like 1910-20 I have a picture of her with my mom. My grandmother was Reba Nelson Byrd. Her mother was Mary Ann McGlohorn or however you wish to spell it.

                Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

                    Dear Trish,
                    Thanks so much for your reference to the website with the book on our Worthingtons. It is absolutely amazing. I could not stop reading until I had read the whole thing during the past 1 and 1/2 hours!
                    I especially appreciated the pictures of the families and their homes and the lists of persons buried in each cemetery.
                    You have done an outstanding job for all of us in providing this information. Keep up the good work.
                    Love to you and the family, Carol

                      I do not have it on a disc but will see what I can do. The dates are right. My Mom was Reba Adelaide Byrd. The picture is from a photo album of hers and identifies this picture of her and Cousin Narcissus.  May take me a while but I will mark this email to followup on.
                      I keep saying I need to retire so I can get my genealogy in order.

                      From my research she was born on 7/7/1904 and died on 1/13/71.  If thats about the right time I'd definitely like to see the picture if you have it in electronic form.

                            if Narcissus was born sometime in the early 1900's like 1910-20 I have a picture of her with my mom. My grandmother was Reba Nelson Byrd. Her mother was Mary Ann McGlohorn or however you wish to spell it.

                      Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

                        I do not have it on a disc but will see what I can do. The dates are right. My
                        Mom was Reba Adelaide Byrd. The picture is from a photo album of hers and
                        identifies this picture of her and Cousin Narcissus.  May take me a while but I
                        will mark this email to followup on.
                        I keep saying I need to retire so I can get my genealogy in order.

                        From my research she was born on 7/7/1904 and died on 1/13/71.  If thats about
                        the right time I'd definitely like to see the picture if you have it in
                        electronic form.

                              if Narcissus was born sometime in the early 1900's like 1910-20 I have a
                        picture of her with my mom. My grandmother was Reba Nelson Byrd. Her mother was
                        Mary Ann McGlohorn or however you wish to spell it.

                        Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know
                        anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My
                        great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington
                        who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos
                        Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or
                        anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run
                        across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

                          I do not have it on a disc but will see what I can do. The dates are right. My Mom was Reba Adelaide Byrd. The picture is from a photo album of hers and identifies this picture of her and Cousin Narcissus. May take me a while but I will mark this email to followup on.
                          I keep saying I need to retire so I can get my genealogy in order.

                          From my research she was born on 7/7/1904 and died on 1/13/71. If thats about the right time I'd definitely like to see the picture if you have it in electronic form.

                          if Narcissus was born sometime in the early 1900's like 1910-20 I have a picture of her with my mom. My grandmother was Reba Nelson Byrd. Her mother was Mary Ann McGlohorn or however you wish to spell it.

                          Thanks so much! This information has been extremely helpful. Do you know anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens? My great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos Weatherington. Then the trail goes cold for me. Don't go out of your way or anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me. Thanks so much again.

                            Does you Byrd line include an Alfred Byrd, born approximately 1800?  He married Elizabeth Moore. Had several children including a daughter by the name of Delitha.

                              I do not have it on a disc but will see what I can do. The dates are right. My Mom was Reba Adelaide Byrd. The picture is from a photo album of hers and identifies this picture of her and Cousin Narcissus.  May take me a while but I will mark this email to followup on.
                              I keep saying I need to retire so I can get my genealogy in order.

                              From my research she was born on 7/7/1904 and died on 1/13/71.  If thats about the right time I'd definitely like to see the picture if you have it in electronic form.

                                    if Narcissus was born sometime in the early 1900's like 1910-20 I have a picture of her with my mom. My grandmother was Reba Nelson Byrd. Her mother was Mary Ann McGlohorn or however you wish to spell it.

                              Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

                                I do not have it on a disc but will see what I can do. The dates are right. My
                              Mom was Reba Adelaide Byrd. The picture is from a photo album of hers and
                              identifies this picture of her and Cousin Narcissus.  May take me a while but I
                              will mark this email to followup on.
                                I keep saying I need to retire so I can get my genealogy in order.

                                From my research she was born on 7/7/1904 and died on 1/13/71.  If thats about
                              the right time I'd definitely like to see the picture if you have it in
                              electronic form.

                                Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know
                              anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My
                              great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington
                              who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos
                              Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or
                              anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run
                              across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

                                I really do not know. I can only go back to Enoch Kilby Byrd born approx 1823 married to Letty Jane Tyndall (tindall)  Children were William Harry born about 1852 (to Enoch's first wife?) Magruda,(my grandfather)1862, Lewis 1868,Senas 1870,James 1873,John 1877 and Ella Jane 1879.
                                I know that my Aunt Lottie married Fred Moore but I do not have anything on that line.
                                I did get a male first cousin to do the ancestry DNA for the BYRD line but as yet have not had any Byrds to show up. Do have matches but nothing close yet.

                                Does you Byrd line include an Alfred Byrd, born approximately 1800?  He married Elizabeth Moore. Had several children including a daughter by the name of Delitha.

                                  I do not have it on a disc but will see what I can do. The dates are right. My Mom was Reba Adelaide Byrd. The picture is from a photo album of hers and identifies this picture of her and Cousin Narcissus.  May take me a while but I will mark this email to followup on.

                                  From my research she was born on 7/7/1904 and died on 1/13/71.  If thats about the right time I'd definitely like to see the picture if you have it in electronic form.

                                        if Narcissus was born sometime in the early 1900's like 1910-20 I have a picture of her with my mom. My grandmother was Reba Nelson Byrd. Her mother was Mary Ann McGlohorn or however you wish to spell it.

                                  Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

                                you are probably correct. But right now it seems like all I do is get up, go to work, come home do laundry, clean house etc and then crash for the night, next

But right now it seems like all I do is get up, go to work, come home do laundry, clean house etc and then crash for the night, next day the same. I need to get to the gym and also go through papers and pictures while I still remember who they are.

                                  Trust me, when you retire you will be amazed at how much more you got done in
                                  the day while you working.

                                  I do not have it on a disc but will see what I can do. The dates are right. My
                                  Mom was Reba Adelaide Byrd. The picture is from a photo album of hers and
                                  identifies this picture of her and Cousin Narcissus.  May take me a while but I
                                  will mark this email to followup on.
                                  I keep saying I need to retire so I can get my genealogy in order.

                                  From my research she was born on 7/7/1904 and died on 1/13/71.  If thats about
                                  the right time I'd definitely like to see the picture if you have it in
                                  electronic form.

                                  Thanks so much!  This information has been extremely helpful.  Do you know
                                  anything about an Amos Weatherington who married Mary Francis Owens?  My
                                  great-grand father was once married to a Narcissie or Narcissus Weatherington
                                  who was the daughter of Amos T. Weatherington who was the son of Amos
                                  Weatherington.  Then the trail goes cold for me.  Don't go out of your way or
                                  anything to dig it up- you've already done so much to help me- but if you've run
                                  across it in your research that'd be a great aid to me.  Thanks so much again.

                                      My PCRS post likely dates back several years. Therefore, I have no recall as to the context of my inquiry or statement.  Is this family connected my Laughinghouse line?  Please help me to recall my earlier post.  Note: I have a copy of the Pitt Co.
