I completely agree with you regarding Hamilton and the ten dollar bill -- our president will have his way -- I have three Teague lines there I am a 3 times cousin of the President (no names mentioned).

Regarding our family connection -- I believe that our Polly (Mary) Fessler who married James Crews was the granddaughter of Andrew Fessler of Bethania/Rural Hall -- He was one of the founders of Fesslers Lutheran (now Nazreth Lutheran) -- she most likely have been the daughter of Peter Fessler -- Please give me your thoughts.

Cousin Anne

Webmaster's Response:
Careful now cuz, one mustn't remind the folks that our putative "first black President" is half-white and raised-white.

And on that note, I really need to get my genome done to confirm or deny the suspected African "immigrant" to North America by way of the Middle Passage, whose likely legacy was passed on to me by my maternal grandfather from southwestern Georgia who by the look of him just ain't quite Caucasian, probably from having some good measure of Native American ancestry which would account for the African as a runaway slave who sought refuge among a friendlier people, or so one can imagine hopefully. If such is the case, then my blue-eyed, fair-skinned hindquarters are more "authentically black" than Barack Obama as my African ancestor came to America as cargo in a slave ship and not as an exchange student on a jet airliner.

And while we're on the subject of my writings, you also might enjoy how I worked our indentured English ancestor, Thomas Whicker (1652-1704), into an English paper for a seminar course on his contemporary, John Milton (1608-1674): A Response to Paul Stevensís "Milton in America" (4 December 2008).

And while we're on the subject of our common affliction, I haven't had much time to pursue my genealogical research. Probably my last research project was consulting the finally-published North Carolina Troops, 1861-1865: A Roster, Volume 18 to look up my ancestors and collateral relatives who served in the Senior Reserves, having enlisted under a provision of the Confederate Third Conscription Act of 1864. This act raised the upper draft age from 45 to 50, but volunteering for the Senior Reserves exempted covered men from the draft, thus service as replacements in regular units. The Senior Reserves were composed of men age 46 to 50 who, given that white male life expectancy at the time was about 40, were mostly old farmers, and certainly not soldiers. Accordingly, they were intended to serve only in their home states, and in noncombat roles at that. But of course that's not how things worked out. During the Carolinas Campaign, as Sherman's March and the Civil War were concluding, they saw combat at Averasboro and Bentonville where they favorably impressed the younger, far more experienced combat veterans, Confederate and Federal alike, which is to be expected of the descendants of colonial pioneers and Revolutionary soldiers.

Perhaps the most poignant service was that of my great-great-great-grandfather William Wall (1818-1903), a Stokes County farmer who had already lost three sons. Fortunately, he, as his entry ends, "[s]urvived the war," and he returned to his family, including my then-13-year-old great-great-grandmother, Elmira Malissa Lee Wall (later Young) (1851-1931). Please refer to: The Wall boys exemplify our great national tragedy (20 February 2007).

Im curious if you ever have problems with what people post? The internet never used to be like that, except that recently it seems to have become better. Do you agree?

Webmaster's Response:
Spammers have always been a problem. I prevent spammers from littering my guestbook with their nonsense by manually updating it. Messages aren't automatically posted and only get posted if I post them during a site update.

Perhaps the single greatest change in the seventeen years Matt Wallace's The Compleat Heretic has been online is that visitors no longer take the time to sign the guestbook, pro or con . . .

Hmm, first good Guestbook entry in six months and I can't even offer thanks by name, but, having been a Bible Belt atheist for over forty years, I do understand your wanting to remain anonymous and thank you for your kind comments all the same.

Astonishing web site! Right here you can find some of the best on the internet. One particular is the april fools day page on his opponents or detractors.

Webmaster's Response:
Apparently, "the april fools day page" is A Literary Analysis of Psalm 14. As a profession of atheism in the Bible Belt is likely to be met with an immediate citation of the first verse ("The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God."), equally "clever" Christians are wont to "celebrate" "Happy Atheists' Day" on 1 April which, of course, is April Fools' Day. I often promote my interpretive close reading paper among atheists as a convenient rejoinder to such foolishness.

potshots along with cheap composing

Webmaster's Response:
While we're on the subject of "potshots," perhaps it would be more helpful if you made specific reference to which of my well-written critiques you are apparently objecting and why . . .
