>I was so happy to see your post to Polk County today! I just realized
>that I have left out the "1" in my address to you and that is why
>you haven't received my posts. Instead of the posts being returned
>with an address flaw, they were held for several days before saying
>that they were not received, which led me to think you'd gone off-line
>or changed addresses. Anyway, I now know the mistake was mine. As
>for the cemetary books (there are two) I don't know if they are available
>for sale. I need to go to Marietta next week and would be more than
>happy to look up anyone for you, but I know sometimes it is nice to
>have a book on hand. I'll see what I can find out. Also, have you
>had any contact with Howard (Bo) Griffin? He just sent me via
>snail mail a tree with our kin back to 1580. Bo's wife is the
>granddaughter of Alonzo Payne Garner (my gmother's brother) son
>of William T. Garner. It doesn't list sources, but it is complete
>with ancestors of Samuel Garner. I'd be happy to send you a copy.
>I'm so glad for your post!
>I sent this message originally on the 6th literally as I was
>walking out the door. I found on my return that it wasn't
>delivered. I'm sure you wondered what happened. I got your
>posts about the new source. Keep me posted
>Don't despair about the marriage info regarding Katherine and Joe
>Pruitt. That was information from the LDS library. They listed
>Sarah being married to John Ezzell when the census state Lewis.
>That would be a difficult misspelling, don't ya think? The census
>taker certainly could be missinformed, but it is a viable record,
>not just someone's memory. When I return from my trip, I'll
>try checking the census's again for Katherine and Pleasant.
>I appreciate these leads... you never know where they'll take
>I'll return on the fifteenth.
>Hope to hear from you then!
