Rita Fleener My Bates are from Conn. and NY. No Longs or Bates in NC. Longs in Monroe Co IA but not sure I'm related.

Rita Fleener Sorry about your brother. We keep people alive through memories. He will never be completely gone. Keep with your studies, put one foot in front of the other and plod onward. Do what you can to contribute in any small way to making earth a better place to live. You sound like a caring person and we need more like you. I'm descended from David Mahon who immigrated in 1863 to Iowa from Ireland. Are you intersted in genealogy? You distant cousin, Rita Fleener

Rita Fleener Have you tried checking the 1850 census records? Also, the courthouse might be a place to check for properties. Being hidden in that manner, adds to the puzzle for certain! Good luck!

Rita Fleener Am curious about the name, Deoma. Are these people related to the Deo family? An other spelling would be Deyo. Rita Deyo Fleener

Rita Fleener Are you certain this is circa 1900-1915? Could it be as recent as the '30's? In the northern states, there may not be many colored people, and those children would attend the public school. Notice the X on 9 of the children. Maybe relatives?
