Hi Samantha!

It's been so long! I hope you are doing well. I just have to let you know I visited James Marcus Tarpley's plantation house in Tuskegee, AL. It was beautiful! How's genealogy research going? Any new developments? I'd love to compare. Shoot me an email when you can if you're interested in chatting about research, Tarpley house, etc. :)

John Dillingham
I photographed the memorial for John in Forest Hill Cemetery and next to his is a stone for Ida Dillingham. According to the link in his memorial and her death certificate she is buried in Mount Washington Cemetery. You may wish to check to see if she was re-interred to Forest Hill. I will also leave this message for the owner of the memorial.

RE: Philip P Hunt
It's quite all right with me if you use the picture. I have a remote relationship to the family, but so remote that I'm not likely ever to put him on my Ancestry tree, and I would like someone to make use of my pictures.

RE: Rebecca Woody
You're very welcome! Glad I could help! Did you see I posted a picture for Joseph Woody also? When I go back to that cemetery, I'll see if I'm able to fix it so you can read the dates better. Have a great day, Judy

RE: Dwiggins at Dover Cemetery

You are so welcome and it was a pleasure to be able to help. As for using the pics on Ancestry, go right ahead. I am a big fan of Ancestry as well and have been working on my family tree for several years. I know how much it means to be able to add some photos to flesh out the story.

If there are any other graves you need pics for, just let me know.

RE: Baldwin links
Hi Samantha,

My Great-Grandmother was Emily Baldwin, daughter of Caleb Baldwin and grandaughter of John Baldwin and Charlotte Payne. The John that is buried at Webster is not the same John that I'm descended from. I haven't yet found a connection between the my great-grandmother and the Webster Baldwins. I do have Baldwin relatives buried in the Nettle Creek Cemetery, however. Here's a link to my family tree on if you would like to take a look.

RE: Re: Francis Tarpley
You are very welcome. We were there this last March and I took the Tarpley's pics because we were trying to figure out if Alonzo was the one married to my Great Aunt Gladys Chelette. Have you heard that name?

RE: Susanna Garrett
Hi Samantha,
This section of the cemetery isn't that good. I have seen worse. The stone was upright at one time. Due to the weather and the people mowing is the likely the cause of the stone being on the ground. No one has ever picked the stone up and in time has sunk in the ground.

My Great Grandmother
My name is Joe Tarpley. I live near Jena,La. Francis Richardson Tarpley buried at Fishville was my Great Grandmother. Her son Jess Tarpley was my Grandfather and Jess's son Francis Paul Tarpley was my Father. He was named after her. Her husband Robert F. Tarpley lived in Nebo, La. In fact, their old house is still standing. I know that my ancestors came to La. from Alabama. I also know that they were members of the James colony in Williamsburg Va. as there is still a Tarpley Store there today. If you have any more info please leave me a message. Thank You So Much -- Joseph M. Tarpley MD

RE: Hi Samantha
Hi Samantha,

Bro. Huey is my fifth cousin. He lives in Pollock, La and his great grandfather was James Marcus Tarpley and his grandfather was Robert Francis. I'm not sure who his father was though. Hmmm…this genealogy stuff can be confusing, especially since tons of our ancestors were James Tarpley! :) ha. In the packet, I got from Bro. Huey about our family. It states that James Anderson Tarpley and Charlotte "Lottie" Dement were the parents of James Marcus Tarpley in Tuskegee. It says that James Anderson was born in 1798 in Charlotte County, Va. and died on Jan. 30, 1860. He and Charlotte were married on Dec. 7, 1821. He is buried in Pitts Cemetery in Rutherford County, Tennessee. The packet was obtained from a Tarpley in Florida back in 1978. I am in the process of checking out the packet names and dates to see if it is lining up with dates and locations, etc. I think it is. I've never heard of Jared Tarpley. So you're positive that James Marcus came from him?? Glad to have someone to discuss this with! Talk to you later!

RE: Hi Samantha
Really?! that's awesome. I descend from his son, William L. Ah, so you came from Robert Francis line like Bro. Huey Tarpley from Pollock, La. Do you have the family lineage charted back to emigrant James Tarpley in Virginia? I do and I could send it to you if you would like it. :) I got it from Bro. Huey two days ago.

Hi Samantha
Hi Samantha,

Thanks so much for the photo of James Marcus Tarpley's grave in Tuskegee, Alabama. Are you related to him? He was my great-great-great grandfather. :)

RE: Walker headstone
Samantha - I also spent some time at the Andrew County Historical Society. If you haven't been there, they have a wonderful exhibit of Andrew County history - it include a huge blow-up of the headstone with a short write up. I think the Walkers' were noted as being the original settlers in Andrew County. I worked with Jess, who is the new curator at the Society. If you need additional information about the Walkers I am sure she could help.

Walkers at Spring Creek

I was able to take photos of Andrew J. Walker and Fannie Walker's memorials today. On the backside of Fannie's memorial, there is writing about her and Andrew's son Monroe. If you know anything of him, put up a memorial, and I'll attach the photo for you. I looked for Elva Walker, but did not find her.
