RE: Sarah Ellen Bullard
After I mentioned that about Sarah Ellen I read a couple of articles and she was called "Sallie", I never knew that, Church records may be the way to go with the burial for Ella, or old newspaper articles, I mentioned I found an article dated 1883 for Dooly News, it was mentioned on the GaGenweb for a book named named Butts, Dooly and Pulaski News. Does the library have any old newspapers for Dooly? If at the city cem they may have records at the clerks office. The Washington Library in Macon has a treasure trove!! The Middle Georgia Historical Society? Just some ideas I'm sure you have probably hit them all! If I run across anything I'll let you know! Cat

RE: Sarah Ellen Bullard
Were you able to access any family bibles? This may be the only way we will find her if she is unmarked. Thank you for making Sarah's name change :), Cat

Hannah V. McDowell Rupert
The "V" in her maiden name is referenced in several U.S. Census records. I have never come across what it stands for, however, my educated guess is: Viola
Like the name "Hannah", the name "Viola" was quite popular in the early to mid-1800's, especially among the early settlers of Pennsylvania, a good number of whom emigrated from various parts of Germany.
But, the "V" could also represent her mother's maiden name, which was also a common practice in those days, particularly among Mennonite families.
However, I believe Hannah has carried the secret of the "V" to her grave!
Best regards,
Jim

Just sent you links for Leah, Philip, and Adam Rupert.
Tried to link Adam's wife, Hannah, but it said you already had a link request from "DJ" so it wouldn't let me do it.
Thanks for all of your help!

Please keep my family in your prayers following the loss of my uncle Franklin Rogers, who passed away yesterday from cancer. If you have time I would appreciate virtual flowers for his Find A Grave memorial 128627148. I am very blessed to have my friends on this site. Thank you,

RE: Rosezella
Oh, now I know who you were talking about. She was a special person. Probably related in some way as we are finding out. Between Bensons, Floyds, Coodys, Wynns so on and so on. It has been an incredible experience. My sister and I recently visited Hawkinsville and Cochran and some cemeteries cause we did have a lot of family there. Not as much anymore, but I'm not getting any younger, either. My song today is "God be with you til we meet again". Thanks for your response. B J Benson.

Bullock children's grave
Not sure if I have asked this question before, but do you by chance know where the 5 children of Dr. James Monroe Buchan are buried, they all died in Dec 1870 from meningitis, he introduced legislation in Oct 1870 to name Dodge County when it was newly formed and the children died that December.
Not sure where he was living at that time, I have since found where he lived when he moved to Eastman. But I have read that the children were buried in a mass grave.
Thanks for your help

Benjamin Peterson Wilson
Nellie,


I found a grave stone for a Benjamin Peterson Wilson
B; 1868 D; 1934

Neither date matched your Benjamin Peterson Wilson
so I added another. his stone has 4 people on it and one was not listed in the cemetery and the other three had dates that did not match. This is a strange one

Hi Nellie,



The death date on the grave stone is 1920. It might be incorrect. Jim

Nellie,
I saw that you posted a note some time back about Rebecca being a distant relative and was wondering how you are related? She is my 4 x great grandmother.
Thanks, Moe

Denzil Cobb: Greenwood Cemetery in York
Hello Nellie,
I went in to finish my memorial tonight and noticed you created one for Denzil a day after mine. If you are related, I will delete mine, but if not, I would appreciate it if you would remove yours and add any pictures to mine since I created mine first. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
