Subject: Parents of Verona Elizabeth Huffman

Bonnie was going through a box of old genealogy data of Bessie Bosley
Paulley and found the names of Verona's parents. I don't know if their
is a Norris - Shelton connection but I find her mothers middle name
interesting. Bessie had the dates for Sarah and the dates of marriage
and dates for John were found from marriage records and newpaper deaths
on Ancestry.com.    Regards, Eileen

From: Eileen Colgan netbox@bellsouth.net To: William F Bishop wbishop@mlug.missouri.edu Subject: corrections Date: Tuesday, May 01, 2001 1:36 PM I just received a box of Aunt Bessie's papers and wouldn't you know it, it contained a copy of the family Bible page that had the birthdates of all the children for George & Verona. Bessie was the youngest child and for some of her sibling this was over a 20 year difference so I can understand he making some mistakes. She must have published what she thought was correct before she came into possession of the bible copies. Anyway, I now have all the dates for all the children and some name corrections for Mary & George Jr. Eileen Descendants of George Washington Bosley Generation No. 1 1.
