In Reply to: Re: The name Bethany by CAROLYN BETHANY SOSEBEE of 171

DEAR CAROLYN,

MY GRANDMOTHER WAS A MURRAY, WAS BORN AT SCUBBA MS. HER MOTHER WAS MARTHA JANE BETHANTY. I JUST RECEIVED SOME INFORMATION FROM A DISTANT COUSIN OF MINE IN AL. WHICH TELLS ME THAT MOST OF MY GRANDMOTHER'S UNCLES ALSO MARRIED A BETHANY. MY GREAT GRANDFATHER WAS GEORGE MURRAY AND I HAVE A LOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE MURRAYS THAT MARRIED BETHANYS. I JUST HAVE NOT HAD TIME TO GO THROUGH THEM. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED I WILL GO THROUGH THEM AND SEND YOU ALL THE INFORMATION I HAVE.

BACK IN THE LATE FIFTIES, SOME LAND WAS SOLD THAT HAD BEEN LEFT TO MARTHA JANE BETHANY MURRAY BY HER PARENTS. SOME OF MY FATHER'S PEOPLE GOT SOME SMALL CHECKS FROM THE SALE OF THE PROPERTY.

FOR SOME REASON I DECIDED THAT THE BETHANYS MAY HAVE BEEN INDIANS.DO YOU KNOW?

LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT WHAT I HAVE.

JOHN
