Damron, Marcum and Herald Connections! Need Help
Posted by: N Davidson (ID *****3863) Date: September 09, 2009 at 17:06:26
  of 1142

Hi all I was wondering if you all could help me with this info. I got. Most of this info is off of ancestry.com so I'm sure some of it is incorrect. I have a lot of Damron's and Marcum's that married into my Herald family. My grandmother is a Herald (daughter of Virgil Herald and Myrtle Moore) I have a facebook page for the Descendants of James Riley Herald, Sr at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=129335115866 so if you are a descendant of a Herald/Marcum or Herald/Damron marriage I am inviting you to join us. I have designated a Discussion Board topic called Marcum's and Damron's in the Herald Family, so please put you lineage in that location when you join us. Thank you for help in advance and I hope to see some of you on my facebook page.
