RE: Felder, Isaac Cemetery
I have sent a note to the originator of the cemetery with a request to correct the listing.

When that is accomplished I will review for correct burial information.

thank you, Robert

To remove the photo of the stone would be up to the person that added it. Gene Phillips. His name is under the photo. Thanks, Janine

RE: Stogner
Shannon, Yes, you were thinking in the same direction as I was for finding some proof in death and/or marriage records and obits. I will try to pursue that route a little. If I find something, will certainly let you know.
Merry Christmas to you too. Hope all is well over your way. Chris

Hi Shannon. Thanks for sending the info on Margaret "Peggy" Jemeson Stogner. I'm wondering if the notation of "one child" in 1900 is not an error or perhaps a misunderstanding of the question on either the part of the census taker or the person providing the info. Since Peggy is living with just one child, perhaps that is what was understood. In any case it must be incorrect, as Peggy is already married to Simeon Nathaniel Stogner and appears as his wife in the 1850 census with a new born (Thomas). Her brother (William Jemeson) is also living with them. They remain married for the 1860 and 1870 census, adding children Mary (c1852), William Wallace(c1854), Melvinia (c1857) in 1860 and two more in 1870: Vernon (c1862) and Emeline (c1867).
In 1880, I believe they are living with married daughter, Mary.
A bit of confusion with records is always fun to pursue. :) Will look into it a little further. Chris

Joel Bullock Memorial
My gg-grandfather is L. Joel Bullock, and I see you have a memorial (# 102766058) for him in Marion County with date of death 17 Jan 1932. I recently obtained the death certificate for the Joel Bullock who died 17 Jan 1932 in Marion County and discovered that this person was only 2 years old. My gg-grandfather, L. Joel Bullock, had a son named Simeon, and his father was also named Simeon. I believe this is where the confusion comes in. The informant for the Joel Bullock who died in January 1932 was Simeon Bullock, apparently the son of L. Joel Bullock. So I believe the Joel Bullock who died in January 1932 is actually the grandson of my gg-grandfather, which means I'll need to do more research to discover when my gg-grandfather, the subject of this memorial actually died.

RE: Richard Albritton
Thank you for the update on your research. My wife is a Mississippi Albritton through East Texas ultimately to Navarro County where her father was born.

My only brush with the great state was the privilege to teach on the faculty at Mississippi College in the mid sixties and to enjoy the culture and hospitality of the Jackson area people.

We live in Houston and are surrounded by Mississippi friends. Good stuff. If I get brave enough, I'm going to pick up my DAR efforts from 20 years ago with the ultimate aim of documenting the Albritton family for our two grand daughters.

Greatly enjoyed reading your Find a Grave biography.

You left a flower and: "William Crozier Barwick was still alive in 1870 and 1880 census of Hollidays Creek, Covington County, Misssissippi."

Are you sure it wasn't William Crozier, Jr who still showed in records. He died in the 1880s.
Everything I found in my family records that others, who are descendants, shared with me have that Sr's death is correct. If you have more would love to know. Thank you for all you do.

I don't see your email posted? I may be missing it somewhere?

would love to know if you run across my John Stewart while you are in SC. I can send more detail, if you send me an email. I will look again at website and see if I can find.

Sorry for confusion.

I added your suggestion. I too descendant through daughter Sarah Francis Hart married Stephen Sasser.
I joined DAR about 2006 through another Rev Soldier another state. Jacob Rich NC died in Franklin Co TN.

Stephen Sasser's son William married Eleanor Stewart-- her father was John Stewart a soldier also,(listed as pensioner in 1840 Census Lawrence Co I believe it was) but I have not been able to prove. I believe he served SC, but there are other John Stewart's. I believe he came from Barnwell Co which was Old Orange District and Winston I believe it was.
Any suggestion on how to go about checking into the many John Stewart's that served in SC?
This would be a new patriot if I could prove him.
Thanks for all your hard work.
A cousin, I'm sure...

Oh, my Navy Submarine son now lives in Bay St. Louis. I hope to visit him soon and dig into my roots from MS.
Take care.

Hi. Glad you wrote about this, because I have been confused on this family for some time. I worked on it a couple of years ago, but can't remember why I gave up or what I found. Let me research a little and get back to you. I believe there were some inaccurate dates/info provided years ago that have made for confusion. Either the info that Joshua Lott was the first to be buried in the cemetery, or death date of Eliza Lott was wrong. We need 1860 and 1870 censuses.

How ironic that you messaged me today as my ancestry DNA kit arrived in the mail! I understand it takes about a month to get the results so please stay in touch. After many years of research I look forward to uncovering more information, proving or disproving what I have learned.

Albritton Family
Sounds like you have some good information on this line. I am totally confused. I have a J. Cauley (sp) Albritton as a son of John and Delila Albritton. I have found a Jacob C. Albritton in Louisiana. Is he a son of this family? I can find John and Delila in the 1900 census to help me out.
