Biography of Carolyn Murray

Carolyn Murray is a Project Member of the Southern Pioneers Project.

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

Hi Carolyn,

I’ve not heard back from you regarding the US Southern Colonies Project so have gone ahead and removed you from the project for now. However, if you’d like to rejoin at any stage you would be most welcome to do so by answering the G2G sign-up post here.

Many thanks,

Susie :-)

I have responded that I would like to be included; I was a member in the old one. and I would love to be a part of the Bio Builder Team.

Hi Carolyn,

I sent you a message a week ago to let you know about the exciting changes in the US Southern Colonies Project to ask you about your continued involvement but have no yet heard back from you. Do you still want to be in the project? If so, which team(s) would you like to be on and please can you private message me with your e-mail address so I can get you added to the project’s Google Group?

If I don’t hear from you by the same time next week I’ll assume that you’ve moved on to other things but you’d be most welcome to re-join the project at any time.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,

Susie - US Southern Colonies Co-Leader

Hi Carolyn,

As you may have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the US Southern Colonies Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. We have also changed the criteria for membership. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know whether you would like to remain in the project and, if so, which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address. I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Many thanks,

Susie, US Southern Colonies Project Co-Leader


Unfortunately, my husband and I are in the hospital and rehab. Hopefully I will be able to respond in WikiTree again when we are released to go back home.

It is perfectly, honestly, beautiful. Thank you. That is the kind of profile I want to be able to create. I am far from now but I will be working towards it

Welcome to the Southern Pioneers' discussion board. We look forward to working with you !

Hi Carolyn, I just wanted to say "Congratulations" on becoming one of the newest Red Badged "Generous Genealogist". Your dedication to Wikitree has been an asset and great help to us.

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.
