RE: Cooper Cemetery
I was at the wrong Cooper Cemetery (in Morgan County). There is a Cooper cemetery near the old airport at Danville in Lawrence County. Her parents are buried in that cemetery. It's a small cemetery with very few markers.

Hi there,

I grew up in Texas but I am currently living in Nashville, Tennessee for graduate school. My dad's mother, Louise Griffin-Knight, was very scholastically involved and enjoyed history. She traced back much of her mother's family lineage during her life. Louise Griffin-Knight, died when I was one or two but her only child, my dad, has many of her files and family research. I too have become interested in genealogy and about a year ago I went through boxes of my grandmother's research when I was back home in Texas.

Interestingly, I made a trip to Auburn, Alabama this weekend and remembered from a lot of Louise Griffin-Knight's files that she spent a lot of time writing letters and researching to find information on her mother's father and his family. Although I don't know much about any of these people, I know my grandmother's mother was Annie Beulah Simpson-Griffin from Russellville, Alabama and she had five children with Thomas Levi Simpson. Thomas Levi Simpson was married prior to marrying Annie's mother and they had six children together from what I understand.

Today I stopped in Falkville at the city cemetery on my way back home to Nashville after my trip to Auburn and found Thomas Levi Simpson's grave. I think my grandmother would have been pleased. I am back in Nashville now and just learned that Thomas Levi Simpson's parent's were buried around that area as well. I would appreciate any information/stories on Thomas, his first wife Susan Jane Anderson or second wife Mary Ann Peerson and any of the 11(i believe) total siblings.

I am so grateful I stumbled upon some of the information at the findagrave website as I was passing through today. Also, I think my great grandmother, Annie, might be the younger female in the picture with Thomas, presumably his wife and five of their kids. I find all of this fascinating and would love to hear about any information you might be able to share. Thank you.

You are welcome. The Wiggins/Orr families are HUGE, and you cannot trust the info on as fact...So I did a lot of digging :-)

I have just posted a pic of Sarah's stone #43938264. It includes info for her and her husband Thomas Briscoe. In light of this pic you may want to edit the bio info on the memorial page. Get back with me if you need additional info.

RE: Cooper Cemetery
There is another cemetery in Lawrence County near the old airport. The Livingstons are buried there, her mother and father, they have markers but she does not. This location makes more sense than the one at Massey.

Where did you get this obituary info? My great grandmother is Edna Wilson that is listed in this obituary as his daughter but she was born in 1906 and according to the picture of his tombstone, he was born in 1909. So this couldn't be her father? Just trying to find out a little more about my great grandmother's side of the family.

You have created two memorials for James Quentin Houser in the Somerville Church of God Cemetery.
Memorial# 57801768 and Memorial# 57801761. One has the obit and the other does not. These are duplicate memorials. Could you please consider removing the one without the obit. Thank you for all you do.

I am the nephew of Joseph Coughlin (memorial #62858685) and I would like to thank you for adding his memorial to the site. Would you be kind enough to transfer management of his memorial? I have created a virtual cemetery of my family and would like to link the memorial.
Again, thank you for the time and effort you've put into this work.

RE: Reuben Marshall Holmes
Mom left me the ancestry information in her will. She was the one who got me started in this when she was alive. She use to tell me all kinds of stories. Now I can't stop. I have found several wraps between her side and my dad's side. Also found a wrap on my mother's dad's mom's side to her. Which was kind of interesting. Whenever I found something I wanted to pick up the phone and call her. I remember Mom going to the library doing research before computers and then coming home staying up late writing in her books. I ran into the Drinker side the other day while looking at some stuff in her tree. I remember her talking about the name but don't remember what it was. Ruben was actually related to me twice he was my 2 gr grandfather by adoption and 3 gr grandfather by birth. Well good luck in your research.

Reuben Marshall Holmes
sorry to hear about your grandson. What was your relationship to Reuben? I know he should be close because of your grandson's page. Reuben Marshall was my 2nd gr grandfather. my grandmother was Jo Ann Simmons. She's Reuben's 1's gr granddaughter. Jo Ann's find a grave is 99677325. Take a look and leave flowers if you like. I have a picture of Grandfather's barn. would be happy to share. I added a story that was told by my grandmother to his page. Also was wondering why he doesn't have anything about him being in the Civil War. I added all of this to the flower.

Compton Family
Hi Captain Andy's g g granddaughter again! I think we may be related! I have a Compton from Morgan Co. in line! Rose Elizabeth Compton b. 26 March 1859 married Solomon Thomas Nesmith 14 Dec 1873. She is on findagrave as 51772405. Her father was R D Compton and her mother was a Cooper.

Their daughter Minnie married Sidney Green Parker & their son was Herman Parker who married mabel West. So my Morgan Co. roots include these names as well as Robinson.

Is RD Compton in your family too? I have no information on them other than Rose.
