RE: Ellen O. Jenkins
Followup...I see that the Findagrave listing for Judson Cicero (102111790) lists Julia Dean as being J. C.'s second wife, though I am not sure of the source for this statement. Julia's confederate pension application lists them as having married in 1883. Let's continue discussion via email, but I believe I need to correct my earlier assumption that J. C. was only married once. Many thanks!

RE: Ellen O. Jenkins
To the best of my knowledge, Judson Cicero, 102111790, was only married once. He was likely a first cousin to Ellen, if Ellen's father Sterling was this JC's uncle (and I think so). Will pursue your suggestion that involves her brother having been a student in Waco.

RE: Ellen O. Jenkins
Thanks so much, Ellie. I had looked through the census records of her Jenkisn cousins without success but had not found that her brother Sterling was in Waco in 1870. I will go through the census records for her siblings. She also had a brother named Cicero Judson or Judson Cicero. Could he be the J. C.? If I can help with the Borders family, please let me know.

Ellen O. Jenkins
Ms. Naylor, were you ever able to find out why E. O. Jenkins was living in Texas when the rest of the family seemed to reside in Alabama? I work on the Texas Jenkins.

Allen family tragedy
It's apparent that something tragic happened to the mom and her two children. I was at the cemetery taking photos. Just to let you know the stone list her name as Catherine Allen with a C instead of a K. Sounds like you might know better but just thought I'd let you know.

RE: Dr. James Culberson Borders, Jr
Hi again. James' fourth wife was Janie Richmond Smiley. She was born about 1886 and married second, Ernest Grover Parish. I have more info if you're interested. Also, I just found a Susan M Lampley the wife of James A Lampley on the 1900 census living in Louisville, Barbour, Alabama. Susan's birth date is May 1839. According to the census, they married about 1882. Sounds like she could be our person. I am sure I can find more. Let me know if you are interested.
Best Regards,

RE: Dr. James Culberson Borders
Hi Ellie. Are you researching the Border line? I traced Susan through 1880 where she is 42 & living with son, James, but nothing after that. Definitely young enough to remarry. That lead/clue is something I will definitely check out. Thanks!!

Borders links
Found the proof I needed, it supports our family records. I have the names linked and additional information supplied.

Dr. James Culberson Borders
Greetings! Thanks for the update/link for Hattie B Herron to Dr. James Culberson Borders. I hope you don't mind if I don't link them as this time. The reason being is that while Hattie was married to a Dr. James Culberson Borders, our family records show it to be his son. Its something that I've tried to prove or disprove but no success yet. My aunt said that she (Hattie Herron) was married to Dr. James Culberson Borders, II and that he had 4 wives.

I know it looks strange, as Hattie is several years older than James Culberson Borders, II

If you know this to be an error please let me know and I'd be more than happy to correct the info. My aunt was well into her 80's when she gave me this info.
Thanks so much,

Hello Ellie,

I'm wondering if if would be okay if I post a few of your gravestone photos on my online family tree, as long as I give you photo credit and link to F.A.G. If not, I understand. It never hurts to ask!

Thank you,
Sara Cobb

Melanie Borders J.
Borders Cemetery Location
Does anyone know how we can see the Borders Cemetery in Commerce, Georgia? I am a descendant of Michael Borders, then John Borders, Abner J. H. Borders, John V. Borders and so on. I was headed to Commerce soon to take a look at what information that I could gather from their library and then came upon the Borders' Cemetery in Commerce. However, I noticed it was on private property. Thank you in advance for any information!

RE: CT & Georgia Borders Nash
I am glad you sent me this message. I am assuming that this was Georgia's grave stone. The other person on the stone was C.T. Nash (husband?) born in 1837 and died in 1910. It looks like the wife G. Nash was never buried there as there is no date or a foot stone in place as with the husbands side of the grave.

When I go back, I will look at the remaining cemetery to see if she was buried elsewhere in the cemetery. It is a very large cemetery with over 2,500 stones in it.

Thanks. I appreciate that.

Harmons Smith
Harmons Smith in Marcum Cemetery is listed as husband of Rhoda Smith. In fact, Rhoda Smith's husband was a different Harmon Smith who is buried in Smith Cemetery in McCreary County, KY Rhoda is buried not far away in Kidd Cemetery. (They were living with different families at the times of their deaths). This is one of those confusing Smith-Smith families and both Harmon Smiths are related to me. The one in Marcum Cemetery is my maternal great grand uncle while the one in Smith Cemetery is my paternal great grandfather. I have no further info on the one in Marcum Cemetery except that his father was William Smith, his mother was Jane Eliza Hammock and his brother Emberson was married to Mary Jane Stephens. Emberson and Mary Jane were my maternal great grandparents. I hope that isn't too confusing. It certainly has been to me trying to sort out who was who.
