Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Our research has a James William Rial born in North Carolina and died in Illinois, married Sarah Jane Cunningham, born in Virigina and died in Illinois. The chilred were listed as George married to a Martha Jane, Jim Presley married to Mary with daughter Ada Thorpe, Nancy Ellen Brown born in 1830 died in 1871 and buried in Hopewell Cemetery, Mary who married Robert Shields, and Sarah Jane Brown who married Frank Junck, then our ancestor Samuel Bladridge Rial, born York Dis S.C. 1832 and died in Centralia, ILL 1911. Seems to be more family tradition, rather than documentation, however. DA
