You are right to be the critic, and we can only go 'round and 'round on that
Yes, London was fun. Yes, winter is cold and rainy, but wasn't so cold and
could have been wetter. There were actually a couple of sunny days, for the
most part. We did use our rain coats more in one week that I had my entire
life, coming from Northern California. The "Tube", their underground rail
system keeps you pretty dry though. Very efficient system of travel there,
from one part of London to another. Had a chance to do a little of
everything while we were there, though we were only there for one little
week. Life's too short to miss any good traveling opportunity like that
when they present themselves. The flight from the west coast is tough
though. If I lived on the east coast, I think I would make the trip more
often. Jet lag all week at the most inconvenient times. Hope to get a
chance to go back again some time soon.
Talk to you later,

Welcome back to the US. How is London in the winter?
Bob Letson and I did some checking and find that Roanoke, VA can mean any
number of things, not necessarily the city of Roanoke.
In the 1850 census Isham gave his age as 45 birth place as NC. In the 1880
and 1900 census Charles Wesley said his father was born in VA. We don't
which is correct, if either. RMS wrote that Isham was born near Roanoke, VA
4 Mar 1804 and made a ? after the date.
There are a lot of unknowns concerning Philip during that time. He sold 115
acres of land in SC 7 Aug 1801; his son Philip was born 9 Sep 1802 in SC.
don't know if he stayed in SC; moved back to NC; or moved to VA. The
Ancestral File gives marriage date of Philip & Mary Vest as 13 April 1805 in
Stokes Co., NC. I contacted 2 of the Submitters and they both expressed
doubts about the accuracy of this. Mary's sister Elizabeth was married on
that date and recorded in Stokes Co. A marriage for Mary is not recorded.
Also, the whereabouts of Mary Vest between 1790 and 1807 are a mystery.
According to the 1790 census of Stokes Co., Philip Sutherlin and William
were neighbors, but we don't know if Mary moved from VA to Stokes Co. with
her parents, or remained in VA. I realize am a very definite minority on
this, but I still don't believe that Mary Vest was the mother of my
