My 2nd great granduncle John T Demyers had a relationship with Albert on the left's grandmother Mary Trueheart that produced one child, Petro Demyers.


  1. That would be confusing if they were in the same household, which I'm guessing they weren't. and it would be confusing for family after people forget there were two of them. But i'm sure they and their people knew exactly who they were.

    1. The Albert on the left is my father and this is the first that each Albert met each other. The Albert on the left Mother passed in 1923 and his father remarried, and with the birth of the first son in 1927, he also named him Albert. I met the Albert on the right wife at our family reunion in 2012.

  2. It is confusing for me when I am trying to research these good people.

  3. My name is Tabatha. I am the granddaughter of Smylie and Joanna Coleman. The granddaughter of Pearlie Scott Tillman and the great-great niece of Lamar Smith who was my grandmother Pearlies uncle. I just think you have done a great job this. I have been able to find out more about my grandfather's side of famiy. Only exception is that my grandmother Joanna was born in 1901 of October. I am orginally from Milwaukee, Wi. That is where most of their kids reside. I just want to say thank you again. Some of this is confusing, but I figure some it out. I was so excited when I saw this and saw alot of my relatives on your list from both my mom and dad side of the family. I just happen to click on my grandfathers name to see if this would lead me anywhere. Again thank you, and may God bless you and your famly.

    1. Hi Tabatha, I am pleased you responded to my blog. Smylie and Pearlie were cousins of my mother. I would love to speak with you. Contact me, LRudd at aol dot com.
