Hey Bill!! It's so great to hear from you again! I miss you on FB.I followed all the stuff on Pamona as best I could because I didn't want to lose track of you but finally it all got the best of me. Lots of illness in our household lately and it messes with the concentration. Anyway, I hope your trip back east is both enjoyable and fruitful. Did you ever get my message before about the death certificate for William T? 1925 in Canton, Ohio? I was surprised to find it because with him being buried in Murphy, N.C. I thought he died there. There were also two of his daughter's birth certs and another person from N.C. that was a member of the church they established. There once was information on the web about the church and how it came to be. I didn't write it down then and now I can't find it. Daddy always talked about it though but felt too distant to try to connect with anyone in Canton. I'm confessing now to swiping the picture of Verlin you had. I hope you don't mind. I wanted to compare it to pictures I have of Grandpa George Nelson Sr. Didn't they have such a wonderful swagger and flambouyance? Goodlooking rascals!!! On an earlier post you remarked that you thought there was Native American blood because of the dark hair and coloring. All the cousins share it, but did you read my other posts? Maybe you'll think I'm nuts on the William Austin, Elizabeth Groves stuff but if I'm right it would definitely tie in Native American. That William Austin is thought to be the son of Bartholomew Austin who was a Saponi or Catawba. I'm probably totally wrong. But maybe when you look for records in N.C. you can dig up some more clues. I have a lot of stuff I'd like to share with you so, please keep in touch. Are you still racing? I'd like to hear what you're doing now. Take care of yourself! Sandy
