IT WAS GREAT TO HEAR FROM YOU AND TO ACTUALLY HEAR THAT ITS A GOOD POSSIBILITY THAT WILLIAM LINCOLN CONNATSER COULD HAVE REALLY BEEN MY GREAT GRANDFATHER. I WONDER WHO THE LOVEDAY'S WERE THAT ATTENDED HIS FUNERAL? I THINK IT WOULD BE A BIT STRANGE IF MY GRANDFATHER DID, BECAUSE HE WAS RATHER A QUIET MAN. IT COULD HAVE BEEN HIS GRANDFATHER LOVEDAY, I GUESS. MY GRANDFATHER OTHA RAY LOVEDAY WAS BORN ON NOVEMBER 3, 1896 AND DIED ON JULY 24, 1979. AS BEST I CAN TELL HE WAS LIVING WITH HIS GRANDFATHER WILLIAM RODEN LOVEDAY IN THE 1900 CENSUS OF SEVIER COUNTY, BECAUSE HIS MOTHER CALDONIA (DONA) DIED IN FEBRUARY 1899. OTHA RAY SERVED IN WORLD WAR I AND WAS MARRIED TO ELLEN ETHERTON AND THEY HAD THREE CHILDREN, CLAUDE VICTOR LOVEDAY (BILL), RUTH LOVEDAY AND JAMES DECATUR LOVEDAY. MY FATHER CLAUDE VICTOR (BILL)WAS A VETERAN OF WORLD WAR II AND PASSED AWAY ON MAY 1, 1983. THE ONLY ONE LIVING IS JAMES DECATUR LOVEDAY OR J.D. AS HE IS CALLED BY MOST. I HAVE TWO SISTER AND MY DAD'S BROTHER JAY HAS ONE SON. WE NEVER REALLY KNEW ANY OF THE LOVEDAY'S OR CONNATSERS AS CHILDREN, BUT AS I BECAME INTERESTED IN GENEAOLGY, I BEGAN TO DWELL ON THE FACT THAT WE WERE NOT REALLY LOVEDAY'S HAD THE CIRCUMSTANCES BEEN DIFFERENT. I REALLY APPRECIATE HEARING FROM YOU AND WOULD BE HAPPY TO LEARN AS MUCH AS I COULD. THANKS.
