New information to post at Berea Cemetery (white section)
Donnie, thanks for all of your hard work, it's much appreciated! I have some additional information to post on my grandfather's first wife, Catherine Cordilla (Warren) Sides who is buried at Berea Cemetery (white section) in Limestone County, AL. I noticed her death date
was already posted. I have her birth date as May 1857 Lincoln County, TN. Their marriage date was 10 November 1872 Giles Counmty,TN.

I hope you will post this for me, please. Thanks.

Hello Donnie.

Willie Raby was my grandfather's brother so I am requesting you to transfer his memorial to me. I could add more family members for him. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Many thanks for your understanding.

RE: Meadows
You are so right. According to family members I interviewed 1998-2000, the full name of the M. Edgar Meadows b. 1909 died 1986 was Morgan Edgar Meadows. He was named for his father Alfred Morgan Meadows whose obits and/or death notices appear below in which the son was referred to as Edgar:

Limestone During World War II, by Faye Axford, p.80
Limestone (Athens, AL) Democrat,: Morgan Meadows, 71, died in the Corinth community and was buried at Isoms Chapel. He was survived by his widow, Annie Isom Meadows, and five sons, Edgar, Luther, Lawrence, Arttis, and Relie; one daughter, Mrs. Jack Praytor; and several grandchildren.

Limestone (Athens, AL) Democrat, Feb. 10, 1944
Alfred Morgan Meadows, 71, died Saturday (Feb. 6) at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Jack Prater, after an illness of more than a year.
Funeral services were conducted by the pastor of Isom's Chapel Church and the remains were interred in the Isom's Chapel Cemetery Monday.
Although born in Tennessee, Mr. Meadow's parents moved to this county when he was a small child and he had resided here ever since.
He was a member of the Methodist church and had reared a large family of children of whom six boys and one daughter survive.
He is also survived by his widow, who was Mary Ann Isom, before her marriage.

Athens (AL) Limestone Democrat, February 10, 1944, p. 3
The many friends of Morgan Meadows will regret to hear of his death. He passed away Sun day after being in bad health for about a year. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Annie Isom Meadows, and five sons, Edgar, Luther, Lawrence, Arttis and Relie, and one daughter, Mrs. Jack Prayter, and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Dupree Cemetery - Limestone Co, AL
Hi Donnie, I saw that you've added many photos for this cemetery. I've passed it on the way to another cemetery and saw that it was on private property with a locked gate. How did you gain access to it? Is there a house that I can go to and ask permission to enter it? Thanks in advance for your time.

RE: Holt
OK that would be the one with the Confederate Soldier and his wife on Yarbrough Road.
Ruth Hasten Walsh. Well since I only needed 5 minutes I trespassed and got out of there before I got caught. HA!

Ruth descends from these folks tells me this:

1. I now know who owns the property. It is Edsel Howard & wife Carolyn, 8762 Hwy 72 W Madison, Al.

2. Attorney General of Alabama says they have to protect the little cemetery and allow anyone (public) free access to the cemetery. They also advised me to call LCA sheriff. I did. Dept. Sheriff Stan McNatt is going to see what he can do. Heíll get back to me in a couple of days. He thought I should also call the Historical Society. Told him Iíd call Archives and they werenít helpful, just told me to call Revenue to get name of owner, which is what attorney generalís office did.

RE: Holt
Donnie can you narrow down which Holt Cem in what state and County. Oh you mean the one in Limestone Co AL. There are two of them? You must be thinking of the one on Hwy 251 or the Old one where the soldier is buried.

No I do not know but there is a clear field road and seems to be a clear right of way so I just barged on in.
I know a Holt man that lives on Long Road up Holt Road that can tell you. He lives on the left near the end of Long Road. Can't think of his Given name now. He is the one that told me the land owner would not care if I went without permission.

Now if you are talking about the other Holt Cem I have that too but gotta look it up, but permission is needed there.

RE: Simeon Corder
That would be wonderful. I was working on our Bryan line and came across the picture of him and his 2nd or 3rd wife? Bettie Bryan Corder,
She was my Great Grandmother Wright's sister.
I was looking at his picture and wondering if you might see he had only one arm or is it just the picture? Well it was not uncommon such an ugly war to be fought on our soil.

Newton Hodges
Donnie, I am not 100% on where Newton's grave is but I am sure it is next to Lige and Quilla gates. There are two stones and one can not be read but the other has E. Hodges. I am sure this is Evalina Hodges who was the wife of Newton and the mother of Quilla. They are in the next to the back section only about five rows or so from the back road. There is not a section to the west. I hope this helps.

berea cemetary in limestone alabama
Good morning,

I was wondering if you could tell me how to contact Berea Cemetery in Limestone Co Alabama. According to Alabama's grave index there is suppose to be a Mary Francis Knox Rouse 1827-1925 buried there but I do not see her name on the list. Her husband was John Rouse 1847-1928. Or maybe you could go look around for me??? Thanks.

RE: Othella
Othella J. Jackson Patterson #35872238 was the original memorial but was managed by an inactive member.

Since the memorial was manger by an inactive, I asked edit to merge the two and give it you since you were active. The original one got deleted so the bio information didn't get transferred to you.

This is what I have from that edit email request if you wan to see that the links get done. Othella's maiden was Jackson an her maiden name was Winton.

Also posted on this memorial: Othella was the youngest of nine children of George Winston (#49040142) and Lucinda C. Belue Jackson (#49040164). Sister of: Louisa Elizabeth Jackson Burgess (#49042184),Jason F. Jackson (#49041297), Sarah M. Jackson Blakley (#35872306), Hanna E. Jackson (#49040888), Mary E. Jackson Bailey (#35857571), George A. Jackson, Amanda C. Jackson McCravy (#48705663) and William H. Jackson (#35872433). Othella married William H. "Bud" Patterson (#54534640) on September 13, 1898. They had one son, Thomas Velpo Patterson (#47812258).
