Re: PINK SERMAN(S) & CHARITY SMITH

In Reply to: PINK SERMAN(S) & CHARITY SMITH by A Doughty of 150

Well....I am not a Sermons descendant - but one of my Edmondson's married a son of "Pink" - and two daughters married into my Terral line.....so have worked on it a bit.

Josiah/Joseph Pinkney Sermons has been my stumbling block - his parents anyway! Here's what I have put together on him.
