Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: Three Things I Learned Today

Randy Seaver's assignment for this weekend's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun is as follows:

1) Think of three things that you learned about Genealogy or Family History today.

2) Tell us about them in a blog post or a comment to this post.

I have been transcribing obituaries from The Greenville News for my Descendants of Samuel Moore (d. 1828) of Greenville project. Three items I learned today:

1. In addition to having three sons with his first wife, Ruby Ann Smith, William Manning Baldwin had three daughters with his second wife (Lydia Holliday): Nellie Mae, Mildred Joyce, and Shirley Ann.

2. Ruby Alton Baldwin was a man.

3. The name of the only son of August Bennett Forrester and Ethel Mae Baldwin was Milford, not Milton.

Pretty humdrum, but all the little pieces of information are adding up.

  1. Not at all hum drum, especially when the pieces lead you somewhere. This was a popular Saturday Night Fun.
