Submitted Births

 
 

My great grandparents Thomas Jefferson Rightnowar and his wife Mary "Polly" Troutt Rightnowar 
lived in the vicinity of Woodlawn and had three children.

Franklin W Rightnour - born about 1875
Hattie B Rightnour - born August 07, 1879 (date obtained from obituary, believed accurate)
Wiley Thomas Rightnour - born April 08, 1883 (obtained birth certificate from Jefferson county recorder)

Wiley was my grandfather. He was born about 6 months after the death of his father Thomas 
on September 17, 1882.

The three children all used the spelling Rightnour. We are not sure which spelling Thomas J. used. 
His marriage and death certificate have the Rightnowar spelling. Wiley's birth certificate lists the 
father as Thomas Rightnour (deceased). Both Thomas's death certificate and Wiley's birth 
certificate are signed by the same doctor.
