English flag
Debi (Moseley) Matlack has English ancestors.

Debi Matlack is a rare creature, a native-born Floridian. This means that the concept of snow and ice and mountains sounds good on paper, but is best experienced vicariously, through print and visual media rather than personal experience.

She lives in Florid(duh!) land of the completely ridiculous, please God-don’t-let-the-perpetrators-be-from-Florida-(damn) news story, with her parents and husband and cats. Her main ambition, right behind not ending up as one of the aforementioned news stories, is to be successful as a writer. Proceeds will be used to support her and her family in a manner to which they would like to become accustomed.

Since generations on both sides of my family have been in America since before the Revolution, I'd like to honor the ancestors I find by pointing out their involvement with our war for independence.
Don't want to miss anything important.
These are my maternal ancestors, stretching back to before the Revolution. I want to learn everything I can about who they were.
I love cemeteries. They're full or history and stories that you can discover if you'll only listen.
I've been doing this recently, trying to connect all my far-flung relatives and clean up the aftermath of my GEDCOM upload.
My maternal grandmother's family name. Our roots run deep in Georgia.
Anything to help make this community the best it can be.
My family is from Georgia, way back before the Revolution, some of them.
This is my husband's surname. He's told the family traces back to Timothy Matlack, but I'm going to need a lot more information before we can prove it.
This is my father's family name. It's fascinating how strong the family resemblance is through the generations.
Variation on the spelling of my father's family name.
I was a bit surprised to not see a one name study for Moseley and its variant spellings, so I started one. Here's hoping I don't muck it up.
I have a number of ancestors that were involved in the Civil War, and I'd like to learn more about them and their service.
Love me some history

I've found very few reliable sources for either Mary and that is probably one thing that caused the two Mary's to become confused. However, I did make my argument for why I think that these are not the same person. I posted what I did find to Parrish-333. I will see if I can find any additional evidence when I have a bit more time. I do think there is enough there to say that these are most likely two different Mary Parrishes and they should not be merged.

Your Parrish-1716 Mary Parrish, dau of Henry Parrish was born about 1781 in Swainsboro, North Carolina. She married a John Lord and died in Georgia abt 1841

The other Mary Parrish was born about 1779 in Maryland Unk parents. She married a Johnathan (Nathan) Conrey (in 1840 US census) and she died in Franklin , Indiana abt 1851, She and Johnathan are buried together in the same cemetery.

The parents for Mary Parrish Conrey are currently unknown. They are not Henry and Mary Ann Monk who had their children in North Carolina, not Maryland. She also did not marry a John Ford, or Lord. The two Mary's are being confused because of a lack of proper sources. There is absolutely no reliable sources that support Henry and Mary Ann Parrish as the parents of Mary Parrish Conrey.

In Ref: Debi (Moseley) Matlack proposed a merge of Parrish-333 and Parrish-1716 with a comment.

Hi Debi. I do not think that these are the same persons. Yes, the same parents are attached but I think that is in error. I believe the Parrish that died in Bulloch Georgia is the profile your source refers to. Henry and Mary Ann Monk Parrish both died at Bulloch as did Mary Parrish (Parrish-1716). Mary Parrish (Parrish-333) hoever was born and died at different dates and places than the Bulloch Georgia Mary. I think the only thing in common with these two is the name Mary Parrish. I really feel that Henry and Mary were attached to Parrish-333 in error. I will take time to research this further today however I am once again going to add an unmerged match as this needs to be researched.

Thanks Deb. I am still learning this website. It is very confusing when you start out. I am attempting to find my mother's side of the family as well. Thank you again.

i may add some stuff to Moseley page about 1st emigrant William Moseley and his kids today if thats cool with you. I'm not sure which profile to add to. I believe you're right about that merge you proposed. I've been doing a lot of reading and note-taking on Hathitrust lately. I'm a bit unsure about adding to project pages and stuff yet so feedback is welcome. i need to go certify pre-1700 first :)

Debi, you edited sources/references in my mother's profile (Esma O'Grady-371). Am I correct in presuming you were cleaning up the syntax? If so, I guess I need to study that aspect of this great facility. Thanks, Don

Thank you for your "Thank you"s concerning my Moseley profiles. I am intrigued by one name studies, but I haven't worked with any, yet. Your Moseley study is one of the few studies already in place for any of my direct ancestor surnames. May I get involved? At the very least, may I categorize my Moseley profiles into your study?

Thank you, Sarah Mason
