This is a
much better improved Search Engine than we had before. It will do more
complicated searches such as phrases "Fairburn, Georgia", names
"William Fletcher" and such... Give it a try and let me know if you
like it. You can also search this site or the web.
This is probably the first update for
the Massey (4) line in some time. It is certainly the largest one
I have done on this line. Like the May update, there are too may
updates to name each one. Everyone is going to be effected by
this update since everyone descends through John Wesley, so check out
your line to see!
This is actually a huge update.
This update adds nearly 200 previously undocumented cousins and changed
info on 59 existing ones. I have updated quite a few families and
the families of the children
for several generations to follow. It is too much to name each
family so I am naming the parent group
where the updates started. If you are descended from any of these
people, there is likely an update that effects you.
Added the family of Nancy B.
Medaris (7) (Austin 6, Charles 5, Rice
4) I found her BIO in an old Album of Pike and Calhoun Counties, Illinois.
Updated information on John Bruce Medaris (9) (William R. 8, Leonidas H.
7, Charles 6, Malachi 5, Charles 4 )
There was a mix up that I just discovered and was able to correct. Two Charles W. Madaris,
born near the same time, near the same place, lived and died near each
other and the records appeared almost identical. The two were the
son's of John David Campbell Madaris (7) and John Franklin Madaris
(8). In our earlier research these two were listed in the opposite
family of where they belong. This has been corrected and it does
change the lineage of these two descendant groups. They are both
descendants of Rice (4) but from two different sons. If you are
connected to either of these two families please make note of the changes.
