I will send to you privately part of what I have of Timothy Southmayd descendant tree and also copy of my paternal grandmother's birth registration from New Orleans, which lists her parents as Rebecca B. Southmayd and William M. Minton. I am still in the process of attempting to obtain more information from New Orleans, i.e. marriage certs, death certs, etc., but have been slowed down by health concerns for a while.
