Virginia my e-mail address is

Please wirte me there. I have such a time anymore corresponding through gen forum. I have a password and user name but I get too frustrated getting the system to accept them...... what can I say for an old 82 year lady! grinnnn

Anyway I was so glad to hear from you. I would be anxious to get Ed's e mail address again. I had lost that when he went on his mission for the church and just never heard from him again. We used to hear from each other fairly often. And would like to renew that connection. He is a cousin. He is a descendant of Uncle Will Bottom a brother to my great-grandfather, John Botom. They were two of the sons of Mary Rhoades and Jeremiah Bottom.

Jeremiah Bottom died in England and Mary Rhoades Bottom married Samuel Clements in England. He came over first and then sent for his wife and the Bottom and their Clements children. Samuel was in the Civil War and died there as did one of the Bottom boys, Uncle Jim Bottom, brother to Uncle Will and my great grandfather, John. Uncle Will was also in the Civil War and was injured but survived and moved to Kansas with his mother, Mary and the Clements children. Another brother, Uncle Tom and my great-grandfather, John had already came to Kansas.

The Levetts I had understood took that name after coming to America but actualy were Bottom also. I worked for a lady that had been married to one and she told me that. But I have no idea if that is true or not. I do not know much about the Levett's but would love to learn more. I know they have to be closely connected to the Bottom line or at least I strongly suspect it.

I would like to communicate with you very much. My e mail address is

Thanks so much for writing. Addie here in Kansas [I was born and raised in Jackson County, Kansas]
