Hi, this is Joyce Menusan and I am not the person you have been communicating with but I think you can help me. My mother was Martha Jane Lilly (1870-1959) who married Benjamin Bell. Martha's parents were James Lilly (1825-1900)and Virginia Ferrell. James parents were Robert Lilly (1776-1868)and Obedience Conley. Robert's parents were Robert Lilly (1740-1817) and Mary Frances Moody (1745-1818).
When I look on other ancestery charts on the net, I see that Robert parents were Robert Lilly (1720-1828) and Dorothy Billups (1672-1730). I do not think this can be because Dorothy would have been 48 years old when her husband was born. I think this is where things get messed up. I am not sure of the lineage after Robert (1740-1817) and Frances Moody (1745-1818) who is of the WV family. It appears if there was another Robert Lilly, Dorothy cannot be his wife. I was born in Logan County and lived in Lincoln County for the first 16 years of my life but now I am retired and living in The Villages, FL. I am trying to get our family history down as there are quite a few of my nieces and nephews who are interested but cannot find anyone to help them. I have told them a lot but it needs to be in print and I hope you can help me. Thank you a lot.
