Biography of Carolyn Murray

I am the daughter of James Arlander Murray and Slena Mae Peebles. My family lines include: Murray, Vandiver, Isbell, Birdwell, Lucas, Looney, Boone, Allen, Yocum, Peebles, Casey, Duckett, Lucas, Linam, Tolbert, Terry, Menefee and all their collateral lines.

I have been a family historian since childhood. Genealogy is my way of preserving the family history and passing those memories down for future generations. My family is so small now, that I can only hope that one or two others might take up the pursuit of primary sources of our family for the future.

I have had a blog referencing my hometown and its treasured past for a long time now; been a contributor to Find-A-Grave for over eight years at present; and have done innumerable family trees for those on a gratis basis. And now, joining the WikiTree group my quest for accurate data from primary sources to enhance my family lines.

I have honed my research skills and have been working at a seasoned professional level for many years now. My goal is to continue to work on all my branches discovering new finds, and correcting errors in fact whenever I locate them. Primary sources are the gold standard for work in genealogy. May we all soldier on. Sourcing is often blocked by loss of primary records at courthouses that were burned during the Civil War, loss of family bible records, etc. DNA has been a big boost to family historians now for a few years.

Please note:

If I should be unable to contribute to my family history at any point, due to death or disability, then I designate either of my two children, my grandchild, or any other near relative, should my closest relatives not be able or choose not to take over my profiles. and continue the research forward on WikiTree. 30 Dec 2017

Anne Duckett's profile (Duckett-685) is basically an unsourced gedcom. There is no verification of anything on it. Just wanted you to be aware its apparently meant to represent Anne Duckett, daughter of Richard Duckett and Charity Jacob.

You may of course reject outright, mark as unmerged match, merge or discuss it with the actual profile manager who created it. (He appears to still be active. Perhaps he has some actual sources by now.) The choice is ultimately up to you. I simply proposed the merge for consideration.

Hi Carolyn,

Notables are not automatically PPP Project Protected - someone has to select that for them on an individual basis. - As far as General Casey goes, he does qualify as a Notable and if you like, I will PPP the profile. - Thanks.
