Susan Davis Day
Hi - Do you know whether her maiden name was Day?
It looks like she married a Davis, and then married James Wiley Day. If you have any information, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Lorraine

RE: Cornelius Ware
Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try those routes. I am sure that the Lewis you saw is the same as in my family.

Thank you for providing the information. I have made the suggested edits.

I'm hoping you can give me some suggestions about finding grave records in Alabama. I am looking for an ancestor by the name of William Hobbs. He died in Taledega Alabama in 1837.His son Lewis is my great-great grandfather. After William's death, most of the family moved to east Texas. I can't locate any records on him or his wife Polly who died in 1831 in Taledega. Any way that you can point me would be very helpful.

The numbers were placed by the cemetery care takers to keep track of unmarked graves so no others would come in later and dig graves in that spot.

I did not say thank you for the infomation you sent me.
Thank you... June

I am so glad some one found my numbered markers. I found the name from a lady in coldsprings who had the list of names to go with the numbers.

Carolyn, the info in his bio was sent to me by someone some time ago. I did not question its accuracy..just posted it. I know nothing about the man or his family personally. I will be happy to transfer his memorial to you if you like.

Thank you for all the family information on Thomas K. Jordan. All has been added/corrected. Much appreciated.

Would you be a relative? My interest is through his wife Ella Chandler, daughter of my great grandfather's sister, Virginia Miller Chandler, who was born in Calloway Co KY.

Motley Cemetery
This Motley Cemetery is an African-American Cemetery. I did survey the goin Motley Cemetery. I will try and add this cemetery to find A Grave soon. Larry

Do you know which Motley Cemetery this is? You did a survey of the Goin Motley Cemetery in 1991. I have connections to occupants of that cemetery. Is this the same cemetery?

Either way, would it be possible for you to enter the occupants of Goin Cemetery? That would help greatly for other to find them.

Thank you, Carolyn Golowka

Hi Carolyn,
I sent an email and I am looking forward to pounding-out some discrepancies together.

Gabbybug was wonderful in her day and I have never run across a headstone she had wrong or out-of-place. Her contributions to Find a Grave and my genealogy research were enormous.
I have seen your good work on Ancestry too.
Aside from researching all those listed in Pigrim Cemetery or digging them up to have a look, how would one know that it is and ALL black cemetery. And if they knew that somehow, why not put some historical information in the Cemetery Description. And how do we know that John would still have a Headstone in place assuming there ever was one marking his grave? Someone gave me a great description to post on a cemetery on her families land which described some of those who had unmarked graves and the slaves known to ALSO be buried amongst many others.
I have heard of headstones being reused as a path across a creek. I have seen many unmarked graves in the hills of SE KY and some in GA too. Not to mention the work the cows do.
So I am curious, how do we know besides the note that Sam left.

The TONE of your message was NOT APPRECIATED. You sounded like the Browning family police.
The memorial writing was quite lengthy. I thought I had perused John's will carefully though.

Many have my William Browning wrong as well.
I did not get the information from this Browning book that many mention and I have never seen. I assembled alot of what I have from Wills, and the Culpeper families book as well as the decades of research between my grandmother, cousin and I.

I have found Find A Grave helpful in sorting some of the messes-out. I find that linking siblings, as well as one can, helps folks to quit making repetitive mistakes.

I love collaborating with friendly fun folks.

Thanks for the info on William and his father, John Browning. "Bradford" was already removed from his name.

Added by Alverne J. Hollingsworth on Jun 30, 2013 8:52 AM

RE: Almand family
Any time.
I figure on the small cemeteries all the same name are most likely related. You might want to ask for one cemetery with that name. Less typing for you and very easy for me.
Take care, and the "Very Best" to you and all yours, Bud
