    Smile Magnolia - about ' double first cousins"

    Hi !

    My maternal grandfather and his brother married sisters. My mother said she had six " double first cousins. "

    I found one- my mother's cousin, Fletcher Earl Howard's photo on p. 93 of the Chanticleer Yearbook of Duke University 1932- Religion Major. I've never seen a photo of my grandfather but, Fletcher's father, Henry Alphard Howard of Cooleemee, NC is in a 1908 group photo on the left, white hat, in the picture in the Davie County, NC Library with a group of men posing in front of the courthouse I can't make out his face.
    James Moore published a book about the people, history and life growing up in Davie.
    There is a copy of the photo in his book. It can be seen online at g-o-o-g-l-

    Magnolia,

    Thanks for your very interesting posts. The wedding photo you mentioned of a Chief of the Sauk Fox marrying a French woman must be very beautiful. I am researching marriages between Native Americans and French and Welsh immigrants in eastern Canada in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Some of my ancestors were from eastern Canada, and I am investigating possible French ancestry in my family.

    French names Madlen and Georgietta

Sometimes I think that our ancestors just chose first names because they liked them, just as people do today. Hester's younger sisters were named Georgietta and Madlen (Ada Madlen). Her parents must have liked Madlen so much that they called her by her middle name instead of her first name Ada. I know that Madlen is a variation of Madeleine, which is a common French name. It is interesting to speculate but I don't think we can ever prove one way or another the motivation for choice of a first name, although I wish we could!
    The names Madlen and Georgietta may have French origins. The choice of these names by their parents may point to some French ancestry, possibly through their father Dean Rogers, who was born in Quebec, Canada. I have not been able to determine his mother's maiden name, but I think she could have French Canadian ancestry. I have also never been able to locate the graves of Dean and Martha Stephens Rogers in Iowa. Dean's obituary merely states that he was taken to the "place of burial" without mentioning the name of the cemetery or the town. Martha Stephens Rogers' obituary, if she has one, has never been found.
