Mariah Zeigler
Greetings Ms. Lanham Dodge,
I have been working on the Zeigler/Dent lines of a friend and am so tremendously impressed with your research. I was curious as to your thoughts on Mariah Zeigler (born c. 1815) who is listed as a child of Jacob and Catherine Zeigler in many records. I came across a biography of Lewis Henry Crumpler that was published in 1904 in "Notable Men of Alabama."

It reads as follows:
"In his early manhood, he married Maria Zeigler, daughter of Nicholas and Catharine (Speigner) Zeigler, who lived near Washington, Autauga county, at a place called "Dutch Bend." Nicholas Zeigler was born of German parents, in South Carolina."

I cannot find anything that supports Mariah being the child of Nicholas and Catherine aside from this brief biography. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Hannah Wagoner

Thanks for the update. Hannah Wagoner is actually a relative of my son's. I'd be glad to take it over. I'm now traveling so may be able to contribute photos.

The dates for James Harvey Crosby does not line up with the tombstone. I appreciate all that you do for all of us, but there must be some kind of mistake. Please let me know what you find out. Sincerely

Hello Honey,
You declined my addition of Ellie Fair Holder being her husband. I found the link in Oklahoma, County Marriages, 1890-1995. Marriage date was 11 Jul 1926, Bryan County. I would like to correct my records if this is wrong. Who was her husband?

Honey, You mentioned that most of what you do is your own family. Are the Clendenens your family? Thomas was my great grandfather. You have Julia listed as a half sister. Not true. What information do you have for this?

Landrum/Lanham Infant
I looked again for Infant Landrum, but still have not found it yet. I did find Lillian Morrow Clark and Mell Milton Morrow in Drive 3 Section 3 lot 0555 and added these to find a grave. I looked around in this general area with no luck.

Added by Carl Graham on Apr 29, 2013 9:38 AM

I have linked Mildred with her husband, but I can't link with Jack, Jr. You will have to do that.

Landrum Infant
Several years ago, a team of people from the Bryan County Genealogical Society published a book containing a listing of all the known graves in Highland. They obtained their information in several ways. First, they did a complete survey of all the tombstones that were in the cemetery at that time and made a list of the birthdates and deathdates. And then they went through the actual cemetery records and added many others that were buried there that had no tombstone. Then they went to the courthouse to get what information they could from the Durant city records, reocgnizing that the early cemetery records had burned many years earlier. And then they went to the funeral homes and got what information they could there. And then they put it all together and published a book. Infant Landrum, child of Dick, is in the book, with burial place unknown, and a notation that the burial information came from Holmes Funeral Home. I highly recommend that you get in touch with Holmes Funeral Home and see what they have and also with the Bryan County Genealogical Society which is in Calera, almost adjacent to Durant. Let me know if you need phone numbers or addresses or whatever.

RE: Photo Requests
You are very welcome. Glad I could help a little bit.

RE: 2 Unknown Davis Graves are doing better than I am because I cannot read a single thing with certainty on either gravestone, and the person who posted the memorial did not indicate the location of those graves within the cemetery. Unless they remember where they took the photos, it would be like looking for a needle in a haystack. I have gone through the cemetery records and there are well over a hundred Davis graves.

RE: Infant Lanham
You asked if the Infant Landrum is anywhere near the Morrows. I have no way of knowing as the cemetery records show the exact spot of burial as "unknown". It may be that sometime after the child was buried that someone placed a tombstone and the records never got annotated, but that is just a speculative guess. I go to Durant with some frequency, and if I go there anytime soon, I'll make a special effort to scout the area around the Morrow graves and see if I can find anything. In the meanwhile, if I were you, I would go ahead and place a photo request on the memorial that I have posted and in the remarks mention that you believe the infant to be buried somewhere in the general area of Drive 3, Section 3, Lot 0555 where some of your other relatives are buried. Hope this helps.

Mary Caroline James Foster Davis
I found Mary in the 1850 and 1860 Tennessee census so now I know that she was born circa 1832 in Tennessee, and you told me she died in 1904 in Durant. And I'm guessing that Foster was her first husband and Davis her second, so that she should be buried as Mary Caroline Davis. Haven't found anything yet.

I took a look at all the people buried in Drive 3, Section 3, Lot 0555, and here's the list: Lillian Morrow Clark (1888-1971); M.S. Foster (dates unknown); Bertie Loyd (1888-1916); Daniel I. Loyd (1891-1953); Geo W. Loyd (1863-1931); James G. Loyd (1901-1964); Jewell A. Loyd (1899-2000); Lattie Lou Loyd (1933-1936); Susan V. Loyd (1866-1916); Callie Morrow (1861-1951); E.A. Morrow (1852-1933); and Mell Milton Morrow (1915-1981).

Mary Foster Davis
Regarding Mary Caroline James Foster Davis, do you have a birthdate? Did she live with either of her husbands in Durant? Which one did she marry first...Mr. Foster? You said there are two memorial on F.A.G. that might be hers but they are not readable....but you didn't give me the numbers. Give me a little more information please.
