This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: UN6647 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.carlon/1.8.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I think I can help you with this if you want to email me directly at email@example.com. This probably will get a little involved for trying to provide an answer on this platform. Joseph Taylor Carlon (also known as Taylor Joseph Carlon) was to me a 1st cousin three times removed, and his grandfather Joseph Carlon was my 3rd great grandfather. The short answer to your question is that the link between Joseph Carlon (who married Elizabeth Caldwell) and Joseph Taylor Carlon was Joseph Carlon, Jr., who married Sarah H. Ramsey (daughter of James Ramsey and Sarah Taylor). Incidentally, another daughter of James Ramsey, Lavinah/Lavina Ramsey, was the first wife of my great grand uncle Kinsey Carlon. Kinsey and Joseph Taylor Carlon were first cousins. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
