Ethel C. Pellett Burke
Thanks for the quick updates! I did that about 30 minutes ago. You wouldn't by chance be related to Ethel and Robert O. Burke would you? Or would you know if they had living descendants? I'm related to Ethel's people and have a number of old family photo's belonging to her branch, that came to me via her Aunt, who was my GG Grandmother.

RE: #41305436
Thank you for responding. Aunt Helen Burke, several years ago before computers, went to North Carolina to search out info on the Burke line. She said that she visited the Cowan house, which was still standing I believe in the 70's. She gave me a basic family tree. This started with Thomas I. Burke that married Mary Irwin in 1783 in Philadelphia, PA. Her info said that Thomas was born in Galway, Ireland, but no date. I have not been able to find info on Thomas. His sons were, William, Henry, and John Byron. Our line is from John, father of Thomas Cowan Burke. John Byron and Thomas Cowan ended up in Southern Illinois. Thomas I. and Mary Irwin, in my info, were buried in Sugar (Sugaw?) Creek Cemetary near Charlotte, NC. I did not find Thomas. I did see a Mary Irwin, but she was married to someone else. Thomas died in 1798 and Mary on Nov. 12, 1813. Perhaps she remarried? There is also a Thyratira Cemetary in Rowan County that many of the Cowan's and perhaps Burke's are buried. You may have this info. I would appreciate verification and other info that you may have. Thanks again.

My ancestors are, Burke's. Cowan's, Barrow's, Steele's, and possibly Campbell's. Francis Marion Burke was the son of Thomas Cowan Burke and Jemina (Barrow) Burke. First wife of Francis Marion Burke, Sarah Willtrout Burke, I believe is buried in Hazelwood Cemetary near Elco, Il (Southern IL), her stone is next to my grandfather's (William Edgar Burke)stone. Thanks

I am a descendant of Thomas Barrow. He is also my 7th g-grandfather. Are you on Ancestry? Do you have a public tree? I am trying to build my tree on my father's side (family name: Chamberlain). Thanks for your reply.

2 James I. Bonne s,,,,,MDs
Thanks so much for you message about these 2 with the same name and title. And thanks for the background information on both. I learned of the one that went to Texas from your excellent info about the Bonner family you sent to me. He was older than the James I. Bonner that "married" into my family, and had a most interesting history. Don't we wish he had written a book.
One of my McCain ancestors bought land in Freestone County, Texas and left Alabama before the WAR heading to Texas. He made it to Caddo Parish, LA and decided to remain there. Caddo is in the northern corner of LA on the TX border. I write this because Freestone was made up people from AL and word must have gone out about Freestone being a great place to farm.
Thanks again, Patricia.

Message mistake
Hi Patricia,
Message was not meant for you. Sorry! The blank spaces did fill back in with headstone photos that a volunteer had recently taken in Wilcox County, and I guess Find A Grave had taken them down for a while. The photo spaces were empty for a short period. Thanks for letting me know that I sent you the message.

Did you ever decide if there were 2 Dr. James Isaac Bonners? One the son of Capt./Major James Bonner and the other, son of one of the Bonner brothers that moved to Freestone County Texas?
Please let me know.
Thanks Patricia!

RE: Laura Alice Walthall Jones
Thanks for adding Laura Alice Walthall Jones. I found her husband, William Bonner Jones, listed in the Hamburg Cem. along with many Bonners. I found Laura's father, William Walthall, listed in the Hamburg Cem. too, and I made a memorial for him recently. April(Find A Grave member) just added some additional links, so I think we now link back to Mary Matilda Linam Compton from SC, Laura Alice's grandmother, buried with her mother, Sarah Alice Compton Walthall in the Allenton Cem.
I have a question about her daughter, Sarah Alice Jones Bonner. Did Alice Jones married a cousin? I would like to get this straight in my mind. Do you have a family tree on I know there were many Bonners in Wilcox County. William Bonner Jones' mother may have been a Bonner, too.
I am hoping you can e-mail me a mini family tree or a few answers to the family connections.
Thanks again for your work, Alice

William Bonner Jones
#16783075 is you memorial for him and there is one for his 1st wife, Mary Hathorn Jones, but I can not find Find A Grave for his second wife, Laura Alice Walthall Jones and the mother of his children. Many of their children are listed on Find A Grave. I don't know if remarried after William Bonner Jones's death or if she is just not listed on Find A Grave. I hope you can help me locate her. If so, we can link Sarah Alice Jones Bonner to her mother, grandmother and g gradmother all buried in Wilcox County.

Thanks Patricia and thanks for all the good work you do for Find A Grave.

Sarah Alice Jones Bonner
Please look at 18106758 for Alice J. Bonner.....I believe this person and 16781571 are one in the same....Please let me know. I am working on their being related to the Comptons from Laura Alice Walthall Jones, from her mother, Sarah Alice Compton Walthall. I hope you and April can merge you info together if this is correct. Blessings!
Thanks so much,
Alice F.

Sarah Alice Jones
I don't understand her listed as Sarah Alice Jones, and not Sarah Alice Jones Bonner, if she were the spouse of James Isaac Bonner. I know her maiden name was Jones, but would her headstone not have been listed with her surname as Bonner, too. #16781571. Please look at this for me.
Appreicate all you work on Find A Grave.
Alice Please let me hear from you, or send me a message on F.A.G.
