Hi Howard,

Fold3 is free this weekend and I found CSA records for Alonzo Davis. I posted the images on the profile. I need to read the last one carefully to see what it is. He was wounded a couple of times which didn’t keep him out of service but a moth or so and then wounded in the trenches at Vicksburg; captured and held prisoner of war.

I will write up the narrative in the bio as soon as I study the records more closely.

Happy 4th of July!

Hi Howard,

I still do not have access to Carol Ann's profile. I cannot add the marriage information unless you add me to her trusted list. You have to have access to both profiles to enter the marriage information and link them.

Thanks for the at-a-girl Howard. I am slowly, oh so slowly adding Doug Hunts Voluminous research to it...the Mercantil records were just the start.

Hey Howard,

You can look at the Templeton Name Study to get an idea of what one would look like - you could also check out other name studies on WikiTree to see how they work.

I'll go ahead and create the space page for us and we can start adding information. I'll also create a "Hunt 14" Space Page.

Thanks Howard! I will adopt it.

Howard, you have been a blessing to me through the years. WE are so blessed to have you working on our family heritage on the Waldrops. Keep on digging up bones, as I say. Finding new connections and facts about our family. Thanks for all you do.

"Congratulations" Howard on receiving the green "Generous Genealogist" recently. Thank you for all you do and for recognizing others as well for their help. That makes for a friendly atmosphere here on WikiTree.

I received two emails over the weekend about the merge you pointed out and when I got home from my trip I proposed the merge to the other manager. Tonight I get another note about it. It should be easy to see if there is a proposed merge and even prior to that you could have proposed the merge yourself as per normal procedure. I think that would probably be best as it actually gets the ball rolling faster.

Howard, thank you for the resources! I'll have to dig in there and find those Scruggs we've been looking for. I have limited access to Ancestry (library use only) but I'll be sure to update the profiles with anything I can find. I plan on adding excerpts from the book on each of the profiles as I go along too.
