Sometimes I get some contacts that just slay me...

In my email today:

Hi - Do you know if Henry C Boshears had any children and if so can I have there names?

I am the grand daughter of Henry Boshears and I'm trying to see if Henry C Boshears is my Great grandfather.

Thanks


The surname sounds familiar. So I check the family tree database.

Nope, I have Brashears. No Henry C.

Maybe I created an entry on FindaGrave?

Nope.

Maybe I blogged about Henry.

<----- Check blog tags. Nope, I posted a photo of C C Boshears' homemade gravestone. No Henry C.

Why does this person think I know the answer to that question?

I replied and said I had no idea who Henry C Boshears was...


I've gotten other strange contacts about family tree stuff.

Like the one I got a couple of months ago from a former sister-in-law.

She was always such a sweetheart.

She emailed me because she found my online tree, and saw that I had gone back about three generations on her parents' side of the family. She thought that was so neat.

She showed it to her brother, one of my former husbands (there have been five, if any of you are curious).

He did not think it was neat. He was pissed. She wanted me to know that even though he was irate, she was very touched.

I replied to her and told her to tell the old fart that if he wants to get his shorts in a twist, to wait until I separate out all the exes and place them in an online tree by themselves called The X Files...

It's another of the undated and unlabeled photos from the Williams family photo album.

If it's around 1870-1875, then I think it's probably a photo of the millinery shop that Mary Emily (Conner) Meek owned in Grenada County, MS.

If not, then I have no idea...
