120 Years Ago Today
June 24, 1889
Melissa M. (Walker) married my 1st cousin, 3x removed, George Fulton Daugherty (David Allen, John L., John, John). George was 1st cousin to Eliza above. Her mother, Mary Jane Daugherty and his father, David Allen Daugherty were siblings.
Melissa May Walker and George Fulton Daugherty are my Great Grandparents. My mother (she’s currently 84 years old) remembers them and has many good memories of both of them. Melissa May Daugherty actually died in my mother’s arms.
