Just read your note on Boatner last name. I know that the name used now is Boatner. This is my paternal grandmother's family. As far as I know the original spelling has never been proven. There has been no information on Ludwig pre-America. Would love to find his immigration information.

I was glad to approve your requests for profile mergers. James Madison Morrison is my great grandfather. Is he a relative of yours also?

Thank you for advisement of proposed Frisinger Runkle merge. Accomplished.

Please advise at your convenience, the correct pronunciation of your surname ( I would probably embarrass myself by attempting something sounding like vestwheetsen)

Hi Esme

I am very new to all this and i'll read about the Merge procedure in a minute. Just a couple of things. I never met my grandmother Emma Luty. She died before I was around. I do have her Birth Certificate and a photo of George (my dad) and Stanley, her two youngest, and her. But I have no idea at the moment on how to get these onto Wikitree especiaaly since I don't have a scanner/printer. Cheers Lindsay PS Haven't found how she fits into your tree yet.

Virgie Smith Davis was my aunt, and her daughter Billie Joyce, my cousin. Virgie was married to my dad's brother, Odis. I apologize for not seeing your request. Will merge this as soon as I can.

Hi Esmè

RE : Cornwell-1326 and Cornwell-308 I have found the reason for the discrepancy in the year of death. Effie Jane Cornwell OSTIC , had a granddaughter who was born and died in 1931.See Ostic-10 Her name was Effie Jane Ostic.

Thank you for the merge suggestion, not sure why those wouldn't have come up when they were entered - eerie identical!!  :)
