John Parker
You added this person and there is a photo of the marker. Can you advise of any other information on this person? I am trying to find John Parker husband of Francis Fanny Parker from Prairie Creek Ark but he just disappears between 1860 and 1870. Thanks. I think the stone says John Parker CO B 36 Ark Inf is that correct?

Well, apparently your facebook page only allows me to "Like" it. It does not have a place for me to make a friend request. So, I "Liked" your page :)

Hello Cousin!
Just wanted to stop by to drop a greeting. My 10th Great Grandfather is Thomas Bliss Jr. His father, Thomas Bliss Sr. is my 11th Great Grandfather. Do you have a family chart posted on Ancestry or on the internet? I am sending a friend request on facebook. I use the name fonda flamingo to fly under Big Brother's radar. I shall reveal my real name to you privately.

Hey James,
While on vacation my wife and I passed through Savannah, Ga. and took the photo requests you have for Robert & Mary. Mary's stone is very unclear but has enough to be sure it is her's and it is right next to Robert. As for Robert's I have two photos which you can read very clearly which I will e-mail to you before I resize them for Find A Grave. When we get back to Connecticut next week I will fill your requests.

Hello Cousin James, wondered if you would like to transfer Peterson Tanner Find A Grave Memorial# 29256862 and Sarah Chaffin Redus Tanner Memorial# 29256757 to me. They are my 3GG Grandparents. Also Ella Tanner Hatchett. She is my 2GG Grandmother, Lucy Ann (Tanner) Porter's sister. We need to get together sometimes and compare notes. My email is or you can call me (661) 726-1812.

Sarah Chaffin Tanner
You put the wrong Sarah as the daughter of Peterson Tanner and Sarah Chaffin Redus. The information in Find A Grave Memorial# 212662763 is incorrect.

Sarah Chaffin Tanner never married a man name Capt. John D. Mitchell. She was married to Francis Lucas Mitchell. Find A Grave Memorial# 21262882. The correct Sarah Chaffin Tanner Mitchell is recorded in Find A Grave Memorial# 21262891.

The Capt. John D. Mitchell in Find A Grave Memorial# 21262799 was married to Narcissa C. Find A Grave Memorial# 21262819.

Frances Lucas and Sarah Chaffin (Tanner) Mitchell had four children. 1. Kittie May Mitchell, born about 1871 in Athens, Alabama. 2. Unnamed Child, died before June 4, 1900 Census. 3. Bruce Mitchell, born Nov 20 1874 in Athens, Alabama. 4. Unnamed Child, died before June 4, 1900 Census.

Another fact is Capt. John D. Mitchell is not even the son of Rev. George Washington Mitchell at all. Rev. Mitchell never had a son named John.

William Redus
In paragraph 6 of my post, I errored in saying William Redus first wife. I meant to say William's father James Redus' first wife instead. My apologies.

Rebecca Hodges Redus
Hi James, Would like to suggest some correctins for you about Rebecca. I noticed you have her dying in Granger, Limestone County, Alabama. There has never been a town name Granger, Alabama. She was residing in Elkmont, Alabama at the time of her death.

The following were the children of Rebecca by William Redus. Beginning with the eldest they are as follows: Mary, Thomas H. Luvica, Susan, Martha, William Madison, Alfred H. Joel Strother and Calvin A.

You have Martha with the middle name of Ann and also record a James Penn as children, Martha did not have a middle name, nor was James Penn a son of William and Rebecca Redus.

It appears the tombstone of Rebecca was incorrect saying she was age 71 when she died. She was in 1850 recorded in the US Census being at 72, which I feel is more correctly stated.

Further research has proven William the husband of Rebecca never had a middle name "Penn", his tombstone bears this out. In fact, there has never been a legal document proving he had a middle name. The earliest record I have found showing a middle name comes from an article written in a July 13, 1893 article recorded in the Alabama Courier. However, there is no reliable source of where the author received their information from. So the story has to be discounted.

Another source was a letter written by an aged cousin in 1902 to her niece both living in Mississippi at the turn of the 20th century. She claimed our William Redus was a Quaker, thus the name William "Penn" Redus. William Redus and his first wife, whose name is not known, were Anglicans, living in Cecil County, Maryland.

That part of the county was debated for years as being part of Chester County, Pennsylvania and Cecil County, Maryland until Mason and Dickson fixed the boundary line. Quakers and Anglicans did not mixed too well, they tolerated eachother, but never associated with one another.

The only Quaker that was married to James Redus was his second wife, and her church excommunicated her because she married out of her religion. Thus after the first three children were born, by the second wife Sarah Chalfant, the family moved to Virginia.

None of James Redus, the father of William, James, Thomas, Susan and Lydia had middle names. A practice early Anglicans failed to follow, because it was against their religious faith to do so. Later the family became Presbyterians and in the case of William Redus a Baptist. James Jr., because of him marrying a Quaker, Lydia Morgan that family remained Quakers until after the American Civil War.

Regarding your James Penn Redus, there was a James P. Redus, he too did not have the name Penn, in his name, only the initial "P" was recorded for his name, he was the grandson of William and Rebecca Hodge Redus, not their son. His parents were Alfred H. and Elizabeth Brown (Wood) Redus. This James P. Redus was born October 19, 1843, in Limestone County, Alabama and supposedly killed in February 23, 1863 near Shelbyville, Tennessee. According to another researcher, James father Alfred retrieved the body of his son, brought it back to be buried beside his grandparents in the old section of New Garden Cemetery.

James P. Redus had a tombstone, but it was destroyed by vandels driving their cars through the old cemetery. Only a portion of it is shown in Find A Grave Memorial #33561192. I am still trying to figure out exactly how he was killed or died, because the actual battle of Shelbyville, Tennessee did not take place until June 1863 four months after James was reputidly killed.

Joseph Clem, New Garden Cemetery, Elkmont, Alabama
I spent several hours thoroughly searching the New Garden Cemetery for the grave of Joseph Clem. Unfortunately, I could not locate the grave of Joseph Clem. I did find a family plot for a "Clem" family, but a marker for Joseph was not among the identifiable grave stones. I also talked with two gentlemen who are the acting care-takers at the cemetery to see if they knew where Joseph's grave might be. The cemetery is under the care of the Limestone County Historical Society, if that might be of further help to you.

If I may be of additional service to you, please let me know.
