I fulfilled your photo request for Jasper marker. This is to let you know that in your note you requested his wife Lydia. I've created the entry and added the photo for her also. If you want the memorial transferred to you please let me know.

Westview photo request

I would like to help you find your photo request at Westview Cemetery in Atlanta.

Westview is massive the largest cemetery in the whole Southeast. Would you please help me by calling the cemetery office at 404-755-6611 to find out whether the grave is marked with a monument or marker or both AND what the section and lot numbers are.

Then I will gladly look.

The office is reluctant to give out that information to non-relatives.

Rape Picture Request

I looked for your 3 request today and I also could not find them. I found the names, but not the correct dates. There are several graves around the Rapes that are not legible. Looks like they have faded over time or nothing was on them to begin with. The above web site is a fairly updated list of everyone interred at the Centerville Cemetery. Contact me if you need anything else.

RE: Nimrod Jackson Burial Site, Crawford Co, GA
I believe it was before the gate. As soon as you top the first little hill, it is immediately on the left, just next to the road in the tree line. There is only about 3 marked headstones there. I never talked to the people that own the house (or trailer?) but they have a pet pot-bellied pig that is roaming freely. It will come to you and wants you to pet it. When you do, it will lay down like a dog. Funny a heck. Very gentle pig. Good luck.

Murphey family tree
Saw several graves and photos of Murphey family members - wondering if you are researching this family. I am related to these Murpheys and would love to share notes.

CONNER CONNNOR Screven County, Georgia

Dear Ken PETERS,

Nineteenth century Screven County, Georgia, had three related Isaac CONNERs/CONNORs; their surname spellings varied among the records, but each had a different middle initial. There were many CONNERs in the county, and the family reused favorite Christian names. The records available for a particular CONNOR can be sketchy, as with your Isaac B. CONNER.

Most of the earliest CONNERs came from Maryland and the Carolinas (in North Carolina there were a couple of dozen Revolutionary Soldiers with that surname) to Screven County, and may represent one large clan (later Irish CONNERS appeared in nearby Savannah); they were usually Baptists, who lived along the Screven County/Effingham County line, primarily in the old 36th District, and their known burials are primarily in Oliver (at Little Ogeechee), at Union, at North Newington (old and new sites), at Middle Ground, and at Jackson.

Most of the Screven County records which did not include a middle initial (and with which I am familiar) seem to be for the eldest Isaac, Isaac D. CONNER (born 1794-1796, died 1872), who first married Penelope NEWTON, "Penney," (1803-1860) in about 1831 (many of his records are connected to NEWTON probate), and then, in 1861, married (licensed in June and married in November after the signing of a marriage contract - the bride's sister was a witness), a lady who may be his younger, but not young, cousin, Caroline H. CONNER (1821-1895) - at her age, one might suspect that she was the widow of a CONNER, but her will only names her siblings as siblings and not otherwise. The youngest Isaac was Caroline's nephew, Isaac H. CONNER (born 1879), son of her brother William Lucas CONNER (1810-1896, the LUCASes were neighbors).

Thus, Caroline H. CONNER CONNER appears to be the sister of William Lucas CONNER and of your Isaac B. CONNER (born 1819, married first 1851, married secondly 1858, died about 1866) - Caroline and Isaac were both Christian names reused among the CONNERs - three of the children of James CONNER Sr. & (possibly his second wife) Ann GRAHAM (James was most popular in reuse among the CONNERs).

Isaac B. CONNOR's first wife was Sarah Ann JACKSON (perhaps born about 1832, their marriage licensed 1851 in Screven County, she died 1853-1858), who is likely related (niece?) to the JACKSONs with whom another of Isaac's sisters, Rebecca L. CONNOR (a twin, 1830-1910) intermarried; Isaac B. CONNER had at least one child by his first wife, Rebecca F. CONNER (1852-1896). Isaac B. CONNER's second wife was Jane Ann BURNS (born 1837, first marriage licensed 1858 in Screven County, married secondly about 1871, died 1897) from Savannah (and not related to the large BURNES/BURNS clan of Screven County). Incidentally, Jane's father's stone is the only one in the BURNS family lot (Lot 313) in Laurel Grove, erected by her step-mother. There are no stones for the widow and their four children buried there. Many from the family of the widow's mother, the QUANTOCKs, are buried in the adjacent lots (Lots 310-312).

As to abstracts of Screven County records, to clarify some relations, we'll begin with Isaac B. CONNER's eldest (her parents had married in 1851, and her mother died before her father's remarriage in 1858 - she would have been raised by her step-mother, Jane BURNS):

Union Baptist Church Cemetery
Rebecca F.
Daughter of
Isaac B. & Sarah A.
Aug. 2, 1852
Sep. 12, 1895

Screven County, Georgia Census of 1850: Isaac CONNOR 30 heads a household [he was in the Screven Troop in 1848 - in the Tax Digest of 1852, he was in the 36th District], and next door is his mother Ann CONNOR 65 - all other adults in the two households appear to be Isaac B.'s sisters; nearby is his brother Simeon D. CONNOR 34 [Tax Digest of 1852 - 36th District] and his young family.

Central Georgian (Washington County), Issue of 13 October 1858: Isaac B. CONNER files in Effingham County, Georgia, for guardianship of Isaiah GRAHAM, a minor. [Isaac B. CONNER's mother is supposed to be a GRAHAM - perhaps from Effingham County's earlier GRAHAM clan - a later clan originated in Massachusetts, moving though Burke County to Screven and Effingham Counties].

Screven County, Georgia, Returns on Estates 1858-1861, page 288: 21 October 1859 Simeon D. CONNER, as executor for the estate of [his father] James CONNER, gives receipts to distributees of the estate: W. L. CONNER, R. F. JACKSON, I. B. CONNER, Ann CONNER, Mary L. CONNER, Caroline CONNER, Eliza S. CONNER and James BEVILL.

Screven County, Georgia Census of 1860: Isaach 36, Jane 21, Rebecca 7, & Lizzy 1.

Screven County, Georgia Deed Book T, page 666: 7 May 1867 [brother] William L. CONNER, administrator of the estate of Isaac B. CONNER, sells lands of the estate at public auction; the buyer was [brother] Simeon D. CONNER [who married a LUCAS].

Isaac B. CONNOR died by early 1866 (if in the war, there may be a service record), and there may be probate and deed records for him in Screven County. Still, I hope that these abstracts here will be of some help.

Isaac B. CONNER's widow's record is outlined in her "bio" at FindAGrave. Their son Norwood F. CONNER (died 1891) lived to adulthood and is buried near to his mother, his step-father and his half-siblings who died young; another half-sibling (born 1874) named a son Norwood BRAUDY (born 1921).

I transferred the memorials for the elder McDOWELL pair to you - as the remaining four McDOWELLs seem to be your family also, please let me know and I'll be glad to transfer them to you as well. You know much more about the links between them and perhaps some bio information for them.

May God Bless You and Your Family,

Bob ><>
