Hi, Laurie. How are you doing? Perhaps you remember me--I was the person who was also interested in the Shelley family. I've taken a break from research for a while. Also, we are moving yet again, this time to our own home here in
. I hope we can settle down for a while now! Durham
I was wondering if sometime you could look up a probate record? I contacted the other volunteer many weeks ago but have received no response. I hate to bother you again--you've already helped so much. But obviously, I don't hate it enough to refrain from asking!
Anyway, I am researching my maternal line. The last known ancestor I have is Elizabeth Thomas, born about 1832 in
. She married John Myers in Ohio , 1847. I suspect her father may have been Norris Thomas, b. about 1803 in Brown County . He died in Ohio on July 10, 1854. Brown County
If you are able and feel inclined to look up Norris Thomas' probate, I'd be grateful. Thank you for reading my message.
