Love Steph

They will be voting on the first of its kind in the state of Indiana - a designated Reward Fund for people to leave a tip that results in the prosecution of a criminal. It will be named after Blake. Also, the two boys that made the public service commercial (that can be seen on You-Tube, cable tv, and at Canary Creek theater) are receiving a very RARE Award from the Attorney General of Indiana for their help in trying to help solve Chynna and Blake's 7 year UNsolved murder case. We are expecting a lot of family and friends to come and on top of everything else it will be Blake's Mom -Christina'sl birthday. What a special present she will be getting!!! Hope you can make it!

RE: Randall Fred Prince Moved
I attempted to delete the Hinshaw Cemetery - I've never done it before so we'll just have to see how long it takes to accomplish after I've posted the request to delete the cemetery - which I just did. Thanks for moving the Randall Prince info.

Randall Fred Prince

Your welcome. Since you sent this message I went back & looked at his memorial. Thats when I noticed that someone made a duplicate after I made mine. There is more info on the duplicate so I will delete mine & add the pic to the other. Its no problem to do so. Yes, I have been to most of the cemts in Jackson Co. Still have tons of pics to add, working on it though. Glad when someone benefits from the hobby I have. Will get to that pic switching of Randall in the next few days.

Thank you for the clarification. I have deleted all memorials, except Randall Prince - where someone has added an obituary to the memorial. Since Randall is not listed in the Sam Hinshaw cemetery -- I am reluctant to delete it ...

My great grandfather, John W. Wanamaker and his infant daughter Ella Wanamaker are also buried there (based on your Aunt Kittye's book), and that is the reason I created memorials for those people. I didn't intend any confusion...

Thank you also for the tokens you left on their memorial sites. I've added a photo for John, and requested photos of the tombstone(s).

RE: Your Wonderful Photos
Joanie, you made my day! After a long, hard day at work, I come home to someone who appreciates me! I appreciate your taking the time to send me a note. I enjoy being in cemeteries every weekend (above the ground) and hope that my photos are helping others find all of their long lost relatives. I just love this website. So many people helping each other is the key!

Hirum and Sara Jane Wilkerson Morris
Cal T. and Jenny Summers Morris
James and Eliza Willis Morris
Lois Morris Cunningham
Carlene Cunningham Tucker
We went to Estill Fork and after talking with several people, I think we now know where the cemetery is located. You have to cross a creek to get there, and due to the large amount of rain, we were unable to cross the creek.
A friend of mine was talking to someone about the cemetery, and he seems to know a way of going without crossing the creek. But this involves crossing other people's land, so I plan to talk with this person. Not sure when or if we will make it to the cemetery, because of high waters in the cold months, snaky conditions in the warm months, or crossing others' property. But my mom would love to go, so I am trying to find a way.
I am including my email address, because I rarely check this site.

James H. Carter
His memorial is #7442186 at Crawford Cemetery, Jackson County AL. Also do you know if this cemetery is at Hytop or Estill Fork. Find A Grave says Hytop my info says Estill Fork. But I have run into that problem before with a Pace Cemetery being listed as Hytop...but it is at the foot of the mountain and is a Scottsboro address.

James H. Carter
You left a flower on James' memorial. I have this information: James H. Carter son of Meredith and Elizabeth (?) Carter married Martha Lawanna Matthews daughter of John Thomas and Elizabeth (Sanders) Matthews 10Dec1869.

Can you tell me if it is correct?

Cameo;s Poem

Here is Cameo's poem. If you like it, feel free to share):

Untitled Poem...........

twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"this is heaven." declared a small boy. "we're spending Christmas at God's house."
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"come now my children, let me show you around."
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."

Conley Robinson
RE: Sara Hanna Brewer Burks Hill
thank you so much for the reply. I only remember what my mother (Beulah Christine Hill) told me. She said that her Grandpa (Bob Hill) loved the mountain so much that he requested to be buried on top of it. So she remembered his funeral from when she was a girl (Must have been sometime in the late 30's or early 4o's). She said they took his casket by horse and wagon up on top of the mountain and buried him. She didn't remember exactly where (that would be the mountain that's just to the south of Hickory Grove Cemetery).

Conley Robinson
Sara Hanna Brewer Burks Hill
I have been doing research on my family for about 30 years now. My name is Conley Robinson. My Robinson Family has lived in Franklin County for over 200 years. Most of my living relatives (Robinsons) are still there. I have several relatives buried in Hickory Grove cememtery in Franklin County. I found the name of Sara Hanna Brewer Burks Hill in Hickory Grove. My mother's maiden name is Hill. Her father was Hugh Hill. Her Grandfather was Robert "Bob" Hill. According to the information on Hickory Grove's page, Sara Hanna Brewer Burks Hill was married to Bob Hill. Do you have any more information on Bob Hill? I'm sure he was my G-Grandfather. It's possible you and I are related. I have very little information on my Hill family. Any help you could give would be appreciated.
Thanks, Conley
