William Lafayette Bryant
Hi Rick - WL is a maternal great grand uncle. You posted a photo on his memorial which I would presume to be him and his family. Do you have a legend for this photo?

Thank you for any assistance - Gai

William M. Phillips
Hello Rick, do you have a date of death on the William M. Phillips death certificate? And/or location? I would like to find out where he is buried. ( As you mentioned, birth date corresponds to William L. Phillips. Could be the same person.)
Thanks. I am back in Texas. Hope you have a great New Year.

William L. Phillips
William L. Phillips was born in 1860 in Calhoun County, Alabama, to john Abner Phillips and Polly (Pettit) Phillips. John Abner Phillips died of Typhoid Fever in the Civil war. Polly and William moved to Texas, around Comanche County, where her brother, John Pettit lived. I have two letters from William Phillips to my Great-grandfather James Wesley Phillips, back in Calhoun County, Alabama. William Phillips wound up having a big family, and I have found him several times in various census records in Texas. You are right. The last census record shows him in Coleman County, Texas. I have been to Polly's grave in Texas, but have been unable to locate any of William's descendants in Texas. Polly is buried near Pettit, Texas. The pettits, who lived in Calhoun County, Alabama, moved to Texas and became fairly well off. I am currently visiting in Alabama, and all my genealogy records are back in Texas, so am working from memory. Would love to find some of "Will's" descendants around Coleman or in Comanche County.

Thanks Rick. I am still searching for Houston Alferd (or Alford) Bryant. He was in TN and left going to Texas according to family stories. I'll look through your Bryants and see if anything rings a bell.
Thanks again

Looking for Houston Alferd (or Alford Houston) Bryant, married Mary Blanton, lived in Mississippi and Henderson or Carroll Counties in Tennessee. I think your Bryant family may be connected to mine.
Thank you,
Cynthia Gilliam

RE: Bowlin Bryant
I have not forgotten about your post. I was trying to catch a moment to collect my thoughts and further verify with relatives. My mother was close with Corilla Penn Bryant who was the daughter of Bolton Robert "Bobo" Bryant and Sophia Henry. Bobo seemed to be the combination of both Bolton and Robert. Both Bolton and Robert seem to be family names passed down here and there. B. B. had a brother Sam with the middle name Bolton then Sam had a son and name him Forrest Boldin. B. B.'s son James had a daughter with the middle initial of B. Daughter Addie had a daughter with the middle initial of B. When it gets closer to me it seems that the names Robert "Bob" and Burnett seem to be family names and this is the best that my elderly mother can tell me. I hope this helps.

Scatter Branch Cemetery

I live in adjoining county of Hunt County and trying to locate cemetery location.

I did find this link which gives name of BRYANT, "Elizabeth P., wife of B., 5-21-1841-2-24-1905" but it appears to be his date of birth & death ?? but his name is not on this page. Her name is near the bottom of the page. Have you seen this?

RE: William & Delilah Bryant
I have no additional information to answer your questions.

When I was trying to identify the cemeteries of my ancestors who lived in Alabama and also South Carolina I used the elimination process. That is I know where many of my ancestors lived and where many were buried.

I identified as many cemeteries as possible and simply eliminated those that I received no hits.

In some cases I talked with some of elderly family members who at time recalled something about their distant ancestors and where they believed they were buried.

I know that some cemeteries do not always have a list of burials.

RE: Sally Hines
Hi Rick,
I wish I had thought to tell you about that census! It would have saved you some time & effort! My goal has been to have all the Hines headstones photographed/documented, then correlated with what documented information is available. I am guessing that many of the Hines Find-a-Grave memorial pages were created originally with info created in 2002 that can be found on Genforum. While most of the info is accurate, there are some incorrect dates, duplications of names, misspellings,etc.

Thank you for straightening things out!

Sally Hines
Hi Rick,
Thank you for creating the page for Sally S. Hines.

In researching the Hines family, I ran across a problem with memorial page #37477928 for SALLY HINES who is buried in the old Hines Cemetery in Benton Cemetery in Mississippi.

The photo of her headstone shows her death date as "16 Sept 1851" NOT "16 Dec 1861" as on the page.

Her stone gives her age at death as 73 which would make her birth year about 1778 NOT 1788 given on the page.

Reading that you are into genealogy, I feel that you would want to correct this so others don't copy & carry on these mistakes!! Thank you for all the hard work & time you have put into Find-a-Grave. It is a fantastic resource!

Hi Rick,
Thanks so much for the link to Nancy (Oakes) Naremore's first husband. I've link them & also sent a "request" to the caretaker of James' memorial asking her to add his middle name, date & place of birth. Thanks so much for doing your military research...I find it fascinating!
