Glad to help. With the abundance of JEFFERYS, it could have been anyone!
:) I notice your mention of COMBS. Have you said (and I missed it) who
your COMBS connection is? My dad's aunt, Hesky Ann Mayfield married Ransom
COMBS, son of Robert "Bobby" COMBS and Francis "Fannie" DIXON.
My BEDSUALS back in VA connected to MARTINS. Eventually, some of the
descendants moved to Roane County, TN and settled there. And, have you
corresponded with Edgar Byler III, the Historian for Wayne County,
TN? It's been ages since I last corresponded with him, but his BYLERS were
also those of Izard County.
I would be lost without my Family Tree Maker program. I depend upon having
all my stuff (although I still have a lot needing to be entered) in my
program, and able to be pulled up in the index quickly. Emma's advice is
certainly true! :)
It's always good to see the activity on the list. A great group of people!
