* The elusive middle name of John G. JOLLY: All though many people have gone with oral tradition started by a Granddaugter, and listed John's middle name as Gray/Grey, there is absolutely no proof that it is correct. Every document available only list G., or nothing at all. Nothing signed by John, or written in a contemporary time period ever gives his middle name, not even his parent's family bible, which simply names himn as John G. Jolly.
** The controversy of Nancy Isabell, and her identity. Same Granddaughter mentioned above said that Nancy was an Eskew. Here is why that is wrong:
