Hi, Kristin and Stormy.

Ron Todd transferred Profile Manager to me for Josiah (Todd-3706) and father Wm (Todd-3711) since turns out Ron is not related to this branch, and they're both direct ancestors of mine. Plus, I've recently been working on and improving those profiles' bios and sources (largely changed since the proposed merge on 13 Jan 2018.)

BTW, delighted to see much of the FindaGrave bio info on Josiah so closely matches my own independent discovery of same things!

The two Josiahs are clearly a match, and I've revised my bio of Josiah to incorporate all bio info & sources of both Todd-3701 and Todd-2431. But before we decide to merge Todd-3706 and Todd-2431, can we agree to use father Wm Todd (-3711) as Josiah's father, which I think is more accurate, instead of Todd-6247? :)

You're very welcome for the badge! My maternal grandmother was a Cowart. There are some interesting people in that line. My cousin and I were working on the line years ago and were at my great-aunt Geri's place, so we could use her copy of 'Once Upon a Time in Tattnall County'. our direct ancestor Nancy Coward/Cowart had a son named Benjamin Cowart. Jami and I were confused until we realized he shared her maiden name because he was born out of wedlock. Aunt Geri was very tightlipped about it, even though Nancy Cowart has been dead nearly 200 hundred years. I guess the Baptist is strong in them. ;-)

And we're 9th cousins, once removed.
