Mr. Hooten, you left a note and a flower on this memorial stating that his mother's name is Mary Ola Fink. This is not true. I would appreciate it if you would correct or remove this note. Thank you, Lu Gantt Bickley

James Henry Hooten's Bible
I am writing to let you know that I purchased Mr. Hooten's Bible at an antique show in Mt. Dora, Florida yesterday!

I have pictures which include hand-written notes of the family's lineage that I'd be happy to share with you if you are interested. I love the Bible and will take great care of it.

You have such valuable information to add to this man's memorial. You should submit it as an edit instead of adding it to the "flower" section. I know I would appreciate reading it in the bio section. As more flowers are added, it will not be visible.

Robert L Ellis
Was out at the New Effort Cemetery today but couldn't find Robert Lafayette Ellis. Found Ella Ellis but the tombstone next to her is Henry H. Ellis, birth Jan. 6, 1910 and death Apr 12, 1943. Possibly a son?? No other tombstones in that family plot. Even had help looking from a man and his mother who attend that church and have relatives who are Ellis' in the cemetery. They didn't know Robert though, Sorry was unsuccessful.

Was wondering if You have a Gunter connection?
I noticed the Rivers Gunter and that was one of the Old Gunter names in My family also Banks was one of mine. My Gunter's came to Alabama from S.C. before the civil war.

Sorry about the mix-up.. We appreciate the offer. She said her great granny was Lura Temple Patterson Stewart , her husband was Clarence Elmo aka Jack Stewart.. I hope this will b a good start. We know her uncle Marty lives in Lone Oak still but he does not remember much.

Sandy Lyle
Wildwood Community Cemetery
Hi Billy Ray,
Can you tell me where Wildwood Community Cemetery is located? I have found some distant family members of mine that are supposedly buried there. The last name is Regan.
But, I put in requests for a picture of their gravemarkers on Find A Grave and was told this cemetery is not to be found. I looked online and cannot find a listing for it there.
Could it be listed under a different name?
I would appreciate any info you can give me.

Israel Gantt
Mr. Hooten, We have been in touch in the past. I am very interested in Mr. Gantt's wife, Sarah. You have her last name as "Steedman". I would love to know the source for that. I am descended from Clement Jackson. I believe that Sarah was Clement's mother and that there is a bit of confusion between this "Israel Gantt" who obviously died in SC and the Jacob Gantt, sometimes listed as Jacob Israel Gantt who moved to Alabama and was married to Sarah Howard. I am also curious as to your opinion on a census entry in 1850 of Israel and Sarah "Gunter" who are living near Israel and Sarah's Gantt's children, Jacob Kelly and Draton (and also Clement Jackson) in Orangeburg County. Obviously, I think this is actually Israel and Sarah Gantt. I would love to hear your views on these "hypotheses", along with anyone else interested in this family.
