I just learned the name of my g-g grandparents yesterday and found your message today. Their names are in the subject line. How are you related? We must be cousins of some sort. I am the the g-grand daughter of George and Martha's daughter Mary Rebecca. Would love to hear from you. Sorry I don't have much information, but I can tell you a little about Mary (Mollie) and her children. Please contact me.

Dear Karen Berezansky

Hello, this email is coming from your cousin Melinda Clark-Black. My mother was a Burke and she was the daughter of Russell P. Burke & Edith Hill. Russell Burke was the son of William N.R. Burke & Clarice M. Taylor. Now Clarice Taylor was the daughter of George Leroy Taylor & Martha Ann Hartsell. So George & Martha would be my great-great grandparents on my mothers-fathers-mothers-fathers side.

I have the children of George L. Taylor & Martha A. Hartsell as being the following:
(Clarice, Jenny, Nelly, Kate, Maude, Mollie & Ersel are the 7 daughters) and Jesse as their only son. Can you tell me which of these would be your great-grandmother?
Yes please tell me all that you know about Mary (Mollie) and her children cause all that I know is that Mollie was born 8/1/1877 and she was married 3 times. Mollie's first husband was a Mr. Wyles. Mollie's 2nd husband was Ed DeVall. Mollie's 3rd husband is unknown but I was told that she has 2 living children. So if you can fill in any of these gaps of information and about your great-grandmother that would be most helpful. Thanks

From your cousin

Melinda Clark-Black
