Find A Grave Memorial# 88132427

His mother's name was shown as Eveline Hightower on her marriage record (Tennessee, Marriages, 1796-1950), but usually as Emaline or even Emily in other records.

Just an FYI since you had a question mark on Wesley's page.

Kristi Miller
Staggs Reunion
Hello Gerald,

My name is Kristi Miller. My grandmother was Mabel Ellen Staggs and her grandmother was Ellen Blake Staggs. My grandmother was named after her grandmother and was actually delivered by Ellen Blake Staggs. This was not uncommon for that time. This past Saturday we had the Staggs Reunion on the creek bank just down from Shady Grove Church of Christ. It is the creek that Shady Grove would do their baptisms in. I would dearly love to get a copy of the photo of the Staggs Reunion from 1900. Please let me know if this is possible.

Melanie Atkins
Mary Wilson's Gravesite
Gerald, I have been researching the Wilson, Staggs, Kyle, Rankin and allied families for a distant cousin of my husband. I have requested that a link be made from Mary Wilson's grave in AR to her husband Michael Wilson in Wayne Co., TN. Mary left Wayne Co., TN, in 1857 with her son James Wilson and she died enroute. She was buried in the original Shiloh-Williamson Cemetery in Pope Co., AR. In 1954, the cemetery was moved to higher ground when a dam was built to form Lake Dardanelle near Russellville. The relocated cemetery still has the same name, and Mary is Memorial #44000159. There are links to two of her son James Wilson's children.

Frank G. Crow & Family
Looking for info on my relatives who are buried in the Florence, AL cemetery, I have the following additional information which you may wish to include: Frank G. Crow was indeed married to Gertrude Jackson Crow. They had no children. Frank was an engineer and had a distinguished career for many years as head of the Dept. of Public Works for the city of Florence. His parents were John Franklin Crow and Adah Geise Crow. To the best of my knowledge, Adah Geise Crow (daughter of Mart & India Geise) is buried in this cemetery, but I can find no listing for her. Her dates are Sept. 1883 - Mat 28, 1971. She was my much beloved great-aunt whom I remember well.

Elizabeth Singleton
Gerald, I thought you might want to add this to her Memorial Page.

Mrs. Elizabeth Singleton died at her home at Fairfield last Wednesday night [8 Aug 1900] in
the 83rd year of her age. She was born in Bedford
County and spent all of her life in the locality
where she died. She was the widow of the late Dr.
Robert L. Singleton who for years was the leading
practitioner of medicine and subsequently one
of the county's wealthiest farmers and traders. Her father, the late Major John Scott, was one of
the heroes under Gen. Andrew Jackson in the War of
1812. She was the mother of Robert L. Singleton, county court clerk who when but a boy was a gallant Confederate soldier and lost a leg in the
bloody battle of Stone's River. There was no better mother, friend, or neighbor. -Bedford Co.
Times, Shelbyville, 17 Aug 1900

Richmond Duncan

Would you mind entering the following bio/info on the memorial page you created for Richmond Duncan? (Or feel free to transfer his page to me for maintenance.)

The date of death in the dates and places area needs to be changed to 1913. (The headstone is rather illegible.)He celebrated his birthday on Christmas Day.

I am in contact with Richmond Duncan's ggg Grandson. This is where the following info comes from.

Thanks for your help

William McDonald, PhD

Richmond Duncan, Sr. (1837?-1913) was born a slave in Tennessee. According to the family oral history, Richmond belonged to a family named "Smith." One of the Smith daughters married a man from Alabama by the name of Duncan, and Richmond, who was just a child, was given to the newly married Mr. & Mrs. Duncan as a wedding present (that's right, a slave as a wedding present). That's how Richmond acquired the last name "Duncan."

Mr. & Mrs. Duncan established their home in Lauderdale County, Alabama, outside the town of Florence, and brought their slave boy, Richmond, with them. They had children with whom Richmond grew up, and with whom he played. However, Richmond never learned to read or write. He did not know for certain when he was born (he assumed it was in 1837), and he celebrated his birthday on Christmas Day.

Richmond married Malinda Louise Armstead (1842-1929) and, together, they had 7 children: Louis, Willis, Robert, Barney, Richmond Jr., and a boy & girl who died in infancy. Only Barney (1866-1945) & Richmond Jr. (1871-1972) lived to see middle age and older.

Richmond, Sr. & Malinda Armstead Duncan were buried in Armstead Cemetery in Florence, AL, on land set aside on the Armistead family plantation for the slaves & their descendants.

Finos Melton Cates
Finis Milton Cates is the great-grandfather of one of my Wilkerson clients. At FindAGrave his wife's name is given as Caldonia Belle Patterson. Her daughter gave her name as Jemima Belle Patterson on a death certificate. Do you know anything about the Patterson family that might help me to reconcile this first name matter? In all the Wilkerson family information, she was known as Belle Patterson(she is the great-grandmother.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please transfer the memorial for John Farrar. He was my great-great uncle. I would like to add information to his bio and correct his name and father's name. I also have a little better picture of his grave marker. My number is 48144413. Thank you.

For the past few days I have been doing a little research on the Delffs family and noticed that you have created most of the memorials. I have created a family tree and have included the Find A Grave ID#'s for each individual (to make the process of linking family members easier).

I think the best way to go about linking them would be for the owners of the memorial to visit the family tree. However if you prefer, I could send you a notice from each memorial with the ID#'s included.

Thank you for time and your contribution to Find A Grave. Hope to hear from you soon.
