- Nice sleuthing, Diana. Did you know that your second and third site quotes
(and texts) were duplicates.
This matter of "finding Francis" all by his own records is begining to be
like sifting through grains of sand at the beach. I think I'm even up to a
separate 3-ring binder for him, with still no reference to his parents.
Authors Collins and "the James boys" however, hint at an avenue that looks to
perhaps have more potential (although it hasn't done anything for us yet)
than looking for Francis h

- Maitland Bible (Source in part)
Caution before use: the Maitland Bible has a number of errors with respect to
Poythress marriages. Entries appear to have NOT been recorded
contemporaneously. A later myth refers to "the eight Misses Poythress and
the nine Misses Poythress" citing the Maitland bible in part as the source.
The "eight Misses Poythress" story (presumably daughters of Robert Poythress
1690- ca.1745) has numerous errors, not among the least of which is that
there were NOT eight daughter

ever make a 1641 map if it didn't relate to the English Civil War. I must
have killed the brain cell that should have been holding that one.
As I had never heard of Gloucestershire being part of Wales, I had a look at
the link given. The red lines on the map enclose all that land held by the
King in 1644 and the green show the land held by Parliament. It means that

- For the benefit of those who've never had any reason to have to think about
it, I wanted to let folks know:
Identity theft involves people out there in the world who seek out
opportunities to "adopt" a different identity for themselves (name, date of
birth) whether or not they can also get that name's correct Social Security
number (using a bogus one, instead) or that person's true mother's maiden
name , though of course knowing those items, too, just makes it all the
easier for them. These kinds of peopl

about the Preacher Francis Poythress. These are three sections from HISTORY
OF KENTUCKY, by Lewis Collins, and J.A. & U.P. James, published 1847.

Earlier I gave you a brief synopsis on Roger Atkinson Pryor, Agnes's
grandson. For any one who has interest in the distant cousins, here is a
web site I found today on Roger's granddaughter: She was the daughter of
Roger's daughter, Marie Gordon, "Gordoness", and was an author, who wrote
under the name Blair Niles. Her full maiden name was Mary Blair Rice. She
died in 1959. R. Bolling Batte doesn't list the first marr

- 170. RE: Poythress, Agnes 
- Thanks for that information about Agnes Poythress, Maynard.
Agnes Poythress was the grandmother of one of the many characters among the
descendants of Francis and Mary Poythress: Roger Atkinson Pryor (1828-1919).
Roger had a lot of Poythress genes.
Agnes's daughter Lucy Atkinson was the first of three wives of Theoderick
Bland Pryor, her second cousin. Theoderick Bland Pryor, a colorful
Presbyterian minister in Petersburg, was also a Poythress descendent.
Pryor's second wife was also a Poythress descende

- Thanks, Patti
Who told me, "Think you must have meant 1861 instead of 1961."
Of course the first day of the Civil War was in 1861, but I have to confess,
there are days when I wonder about that. Some people seem to still fighting
the fight or at least talking the talk:)
I also know how to spell better than my email would have indicated.
Your patience is appreciated.

However, I did go to Myfamily.com and afterwards made the comments below to

- My question relayed from another list was the issue of My Family--a
subsidiary of Ancestry.com--claiming to copyright stuff on the Genconnect. I
think the legal issue is incorrectly put by the authors of the attached
excerpts, but I think one has the right to ask why a copyright notice is
necessary. What are the intentions of Ancestry. I know others are bothered
by Yahoo--who bought Geocities--and by Family Tree Maker making similar
copyright claims on hard-earned material donated by thousands of people a
