Permission to use photo
Hi Ed,

Thanks for your work at Smith's Chapel in Carroll County, GA. I recently discovered quite a few of my Gammon relatives who are buried there. I would like to ask permission to add your Findagrave memorial photo of the Smith Chapel church building for use in my family history records and publications.

William Francis Speight Powell
Hello again Ed,
I noticed that Lanie originally created the referenced memorial. I have checked again and believe that William F. S. Powell could be the son of John W. Powell and his first wife, Sarah Cowert. Lanie has Sarah Fisher Goodwyn as the first wife and Sarah Cowert as the second wife. John Powell was born roughly in 1782 and could therefore be the father of the referenced individual. But, it would have to be by an earlier wife than Sarah Fisher Goodwyn who married John W. Powell in 1847 long after the birth of William Francis Speight Powell. If you go to the memorial for John W. Powell, you will see what I am talking about. He is buried with his wife Sarah Cowert in a different cemetery than Sarah (Goodwyn) Powell.....a good indication that Sarah Cowert was his first wife and Sarah Goodwyn his second wife. Not trying to be petty....only trying to clear up the confusion. Thanks for tolerating my attention to detal and have a great day.

William Francis Speight Powell
Hello Ed,
Re: William Francis Speight Powell (#94141215).
I am a Goodwyn family descendent and am always interested in finding information to corroborate what I already have found from my research. I have in my records that Sarah Fisher Goodwyn, daughter of Burell and Anne (Dance) Goodwyn married John W. Powell on 19 Jan 1847. Birth date of Sarah (Goodwyn) Fisher was 1828/29. Her marker at Cokes Chapel Methodist Church, Coweta, GA. indicates that she died in 1857. The problem with her being the mother of William Speight Powell is that she was born in 1828/29 and he was born in 1818 before she was born. I believe that William Speight Powell might have been a brother of John W. Powell rather than his son. Also, you might want to remove the second Speight as it appears that Speight was entered as a maiden name. I see that you did not create this memorial originally and perhaps there is info that is incorrect. I offer this only as a suggestion and not as a criticism.

Alonzo Dozier Clements's death was in 1955, not 1950; a simple typo.

Gabriel Clements Memorial Grave Stone

Gabriel Clements was my 6th Great-Grandfather.
I placed this memorial marker beside Mary Watts about 12 years ago at the Clements Family Cemetery. I have been researching this family for over 20 years. There is one very important note here:

Most Clements researchers including myself now understand there was two Gabriel Clements in SC and GA. And believe that they were first cousins.

1. Capt. Gabriel Clements (1745-1825) WHOM THIS MARKER HONORS was b. Lunenburg Co.,VA, lived Pittsylvania Co.,VA, moved: Lexington Dist.,SC
& Crawford Co., GA - Captain of Scouts under Gen. Marion, Rev.War 1780-82 married Mary Watts (1770-1869). Was the son of Joseph Clements (1723-1779+) of Cecil Co., MD, VA, SC, GA.

2. Gabriel Clements (1749-1789+) was the son of
Andrew Clements (1718-1756) of Cecil Co., MD,
VA, SC, GA and Rebecca Brown (~1720-1762) -
dau. of Edward Brown who d.1762.

So if you could please make a note of this and take the 1749 off of the memorial and replace it with 1745, I would appreciate it. The misinformation keeps going.

Todd Clements Priest

Also: The first marked grave was 1833. The family cemetery was never a part of the Mount Galilee Church, it came much later.

Mary A. Caswell Hearn
Ed: I noticed in the Mount Ararat Methodist Cemetery in Putnam County, GA, that the Mary's memorial page was a duplicate on one that was entered later. I would suggest that you delete your page since the later one has more information.

PS Caswell was Mary's husband's first name.

Gordon Pasley
Infant Pasley Memorials
Find-A-Grave listings of Pasley memorials for Franklin County, Virginia, currently contain obvious duplicates. It would be less confusing, if one of the memorials in each case was deleted. My suggestions for deletion include:

Suggest ed weir delete #20656849 Infant Pasley and #20656874 Infant Pasley.

For both of these Infant Pasleys, Anthony's #8086426 is earlier and more complete than ed weir's #20656849 and Anthony's #12350247 is earlier and more complete than ed weir's #20656874.

RE: Ed Weir and Clements
I was referring to the two Clements that you transferred to me. James (b 11/2/1879) and Martha (Mattie b 7/22/1872).

Hi Ed. Thank you very much for the transfers. Do you have any information on James and Martha Clements? Their parents?

Thomas Clements
Was wondering if you are related to this Thomas Clements. Seems he may be related to one of my relatives, as one of the names of his children would indicate this. I am related to a Jeptha Clements. Would love see if we're related.

RE: John Rollins
I'm sorry it has taken so long to get back to you.
The will of Thomas Alexander McBride (father of Mary Ann McBride) mentions his son-in-law John Rollins. Also there is a headstone in the McBride Cemetery for Mary Ann Rollins, consort of John Rollins. She died in 1848 so it's probable that he married again after her death. This is the only information I have on Mary Ann and John. I hope it will help you.

John T Hearn was just married twice

Thanks for all the great information you've provided. It's been really helpful.

In John T Hearn's information, you state: "Cora Bette was John T Hearn's first wife and Lola was his third wife. (I didn't know how to change the order). John T Hearn's second wife was Ella J McDaniel..."

This is not quite correct. John T Hearn (1867-1968) was correctly married first to Cora Bette Jeter in 1894 then second to Lola M (last name unknown to me) in 1908. If you look in the 1910 census you will see John and Lola, with the marriage listed as second for John and first for Lola. According to the census, they were married two years in 1910. The children in the 1910 census are consistent with this.

Ella McDaniel married a John T Hearn in 1901, this is in the Carroll county marriage records, however this was a different John T Hearn, born 1843 in Kentucky, son of Harrison Hearn and Ella J McDaniel. John Tevis Hearn married first Edmonia Harris, in 1865. She died sometime before 1900. He remarried Ella in 1901.

John Tevis Hearn was in the newspaper and publishing business. "He was educated at the college in Shelbyville. He was a printer and started the Shelby Sentinel in his boyhood. He later published an Agricultural paper in Louisville, Ky, then the Knoxville Daily Sentinel, Knoxville, Tenn., then he went to Tampa, Florida and edited the Tampa Daily Times. In 1900 he moved to Carrollton, Ga. and bought the Carroll Free Press and continued it publication." He then moved to Cesterfield South Carolina and continued in the newspaper business.

You can find his death record in South Carolina, Nov 13, 1937, at the ripe old age of 94. The record lists Ella Mc.D. Hearn as his wife, but she preceeded him in death, as evidenced by the 1930 census, where he is listed as a widower, living with his son, Paul H Hearn in Chesterfield South Carolina. The census confirms the entire family is in the newspaper business.

John T Hearn (1867-1968) also lived a long life, but he died in Carroll county, as evidenced by his Georgia death record.

Mattox Cemetery
Hi Ed. There is a problem with there being 2 Mattox cemeteries listed in Franklin County, VA. One being called Mattox Cemetery the other being called Mattox Family Cemetery. They both contain the same names. The Mattox Family Cemetery has been there since 2003 and contains grave pictures.
I noticed that you have entered some memorials in 2007 in the Mattox Cemetery that are already in the other one. Could you please have a look and delete as applicable as to avoid confusion when people link to them. Thank you very much.
