Re: William Frank Durham

In Reply to: Re: William Frank Durham by Terra Durham of 3496

Well, I don't think that Ida "Bell" Durham was originally a Durham. My point in listing them the way I did is that it seems that she may have been the matriarch of those Durhams listed and possibly married to that William Frank Durham on that list I found.

Back then you would see certain given names often in families, so I thought that they may be linked to your William Frank Durham, and if so (betting on my theory as correct) she married into the Durhams.

As I said I was trying to confirm her parents. My Robinson ancestors were also buried in that cemetery, and they had a daughter Ada/Ida born about the same time (according to census records). Their names are John Morgan Robinson and Elizabeth Ada Bell. See the potential connection. I'm attempting to make the link.

There could have been multiple Ada/Idas and William Franks back then, but I hoped that you recognized the locale, and may shed some light of the list I gave.

But at least you know now that there are other Durhams of similar names in this area, which could eventually shed light on what you're looking for.

Here are the "William Frank Durhams", currently list on findagrave.
