RE: Cora McMNurtry
Yep...been there a couple of times cuz Dewayne Lawrence and I are who brought Indiana's stone from Mt. Olive to the McMurtry Cem. I also told Elvada what she needed to do to get a Confederate marker for Ambrose Jeffery from the gov't.

I have seen the map....that is where I found the names of who was supposed to be there.

Are you going to the reunion in July? I am thinking abt it as Lisa personally invited me (we fuss a lot so I was touched that she did it).

Cora McMNurtry
I saw you had messaged me but my lousy coomputer burped and it's gone to never-never land.

Calvin and Joicey Manerva also had three older children, Milton, Olivia, Effie and our Cora.

he linking I asked you to do is to connect Cora to her parents' memorials so they will show her as their child. I am in contact with a family member and she has verified these "facts" as being correct.

Going to bed...

Husband & I got up to Optimus yesterday and it looks absolutely beautiful. So well maintained, a lot of work, and then you have made all these great memorials. I will be posting some pix on some recent ones, hopefully found a few others. In a few cases we may have gotten a pic we think is 'clearer' - so if I put up one and you don't feel it needs to be on memorial along w/original, pls let me know and I will remove. Love FindaGrave & love this spring weather.

RE: Jeremiah McCluskey
The reference that Linda posted is the earliest that I have been able to find. I call him Jeremiah 1. He died in Laurens, SC in 1788. Jeremiah 2 was also born in Virginia. 1775. He is the one buried in Green Hill, AL. If you can get on the 1800 census for
Jeremiah 2, it is very useful. Charles married Ann Ross and moved to Green Hill and is buried there. Isaac married there and moved to AR and MO. I have not been able to find where he is buried. You might have that. Charles only had one child that survived to adulthood. That is Charles Jeremiah David McCluskey, my relative, called Jerrie (Jerry). He married and moved to Davis, OK (Indian Territory) around 1894. He had 10 children, one of those my great grandmother.
Have you been able to collect info on Isaac's children?

Added by Sally on Feb 02, 2016 7:46 AM

Jeremiah McCluskey
Sue- I also am searching for information about this relative.
I suspect your relative is Isaac McC. Mine is Charles, his brother. Both children of Jeremiah and Betsy-
Since Jeremiah was born in VA and also his father Jeremiah,
I am searching there. Also, I plan to go to Laurens Co., SC in March to try to find 1740 Jeremiah's grave. Any information you have would be appreciated. I think Jeremiah 1775 is the one who fought in the War of 1812 in Va. I think you had already found this. He was married and living in SC in 1800 census. Sally

RE: Jeremiah McCluskey
Thanks, I'd love to have a copy. There was a researcher that I corresponded with several years back; but after her death, I don't think I've been asked about the McCluskeys. I'm Linda Mayfield on fb if you would like to reach me there. I'm in SC now, so a long trip back to AL. Oh, Jeremiah's monument reads "McCL J. M., Nov 1831" per Cemeteries of East Lauderdale County, AL. I've been to that cemetery searching for a Clemmons ancestor, but I didn't take a picture of Jeremiah's gravestone. Linda

Sue, Do live near Florence? I used to be fairly close, but I've moved much further away. We need info from someone in AL with records to verify Jeremiah. I found this online some time ago -

Jeremiah McCluskey
Sue, I've been trying to verify that "our" Jeremiah M. McCluskey is the same person that served in the 111 Reg't Parker's Virginia Militia. There were children born, supposedly in South Carolina, between 1803 and 1815. I guess it is possible that he headed to Virginia for service in 1812, but I don't know that I could prove it. What do you think? Linda

Jeffery Cemetery
I am wondering if there are plans to fence the cemetery. There is a small fund that was collected in the past for the purpose of putting a fence around the cemetery. If someone will contact me we can discuss it further.

Jeffery Cemetery Stone County
I found this web page on the Jeffery cemetery just today and I am hoping that you can help me.

First, How up to date are the pictures of the cemetery? It has been about a year or two since I was there and it was very unattended and the stones were lying on the ground what wasn't covered with soil from river flooding and cattle knocking them down over the years.

My cousin and I have been for some time trying to accumulate enough money put a fence around it in case the cattle are put back in that field.
We both are up in our years and we do not live in the area either so it is a challenge for us. We both are decendants of Miles Jeffery.

Please let me know if these pictures are up to date. Hopefully they are and someoneis sharing our interest and cleaned it up and dug out the stones and reset them.
Thank you,
Cookie ford

# 48401155 Avarilla Jeffery Dillard
Hi Sue,
I have a question about the "Old Whitehouse Cemetery" where you have found Avarilla's grave. Is hers the only grave (marked or not) in the cemetery? Is it a family cemetery located on someone's farm rather than being an actual cemetery? The cemetery does not appear to have been listed in Izard County cemetery books (unless it has another name).

Avarilla was the eldest daughter of John Jeffery, II & his wife, Malinda Benbrook Jeffery. Malinda Benbrook (1810-1849) was the sister of my gg grandfather, Henry Benbrook. We know where most of the Benbrooks are buried, but we have looked for years for Malinda Benbrook Jeffery's grave -- she does not appear to have been buried in the Jeffery cemeteries at Mt. Olive (or if she was, there is no evidence of it). Anyway, we had thought that Avarilla was probably buried (without an existing marker) at Spring Creek where her husband was buried many years after her death; but now that you have found her elsewhere, we are wondering if perhaps Avarilla was buried at Old Whitehouse Cemetery because her parents were buried there.

Thank you again for all of the wonderful work that you do! It is appreciated.

Also, Annie Rachel Jeffery is not buried there.

You have Jehoida (Quincy) Jeffery listed.

Jehoida Quincy was the son of Elijah and Massie Caroline Jeffery. Jehoida Jeffery (son of Miles Jeffery in this cemetary is just Jehoida). He is Jehoida Quincy's cousin.

It's confusing. We're a large clan and everyone named their boys Jehoida after their grandfather.
