SUSANNA FRINK GAUSE
KEITH,
CHECK THE FAMILY DIAGRAM ON SUSANNA FRINK GAUSE'S MEMORIAL #143139427. IT SHOWS HER DEATH DATE AS 1809 IN THE DIAGRAM BUT FOR SOME REASON THE DATE BEING GIVEN BY FINE A GRAVE IS 1783. I HAVE A DOCUMENT WHICH SHOWS SUSANNA GIVING A DEED OF GIFT TO HER MARRIED DAUGHTERS, CHARLOTTE GALLOWAY AND ELIZABETH CHRISTIE BEFORE SHE DIED IN 1809. WOULD YOU CHANGE SUSANNA'S DEATH DATE TO 1809.
SINCERLY,
WES R. CHRISTIE

Miscellaneous
Keith, I am Patricia Davis Johnson and my father, Joseph L Davis, was born in Alcolu, SC and most of his family still live in the area. While researching my family your Find A Grave additions show up often. My main question is (I am also a Find A Grave volunteer in VA) how you can get a connection to a Find A Grave site that does not show up when you do a search. I am having this problem with Narcissa Jones Avant. I am asking you because you have so much knowledge about many things and could probably give me a quick and simple answer or point me in the right direction to find it. Many thanks for all your contributions. Pat

RE: FindAGrave Memorial No. 25587617
Thanks for replying. I've often wondered about the Horry County Crawfords. My M L Crawford did not show up in Columbus Co NC until the 1850's, aged ~32. Record indicates he was from Pitt Co but, so far, we have not been able to find him in any of Pitt's Crawford families. I do know one of his sons, Samuel James Crawford, moved to Florence Co SC and raised his family there. - Again, thank you.

Mr. Edwards,
I noticed where you left a "flower" at the Martin Luther Crawford memorial No.25587617. This is my great-great grandfather and our family has been researching him for about 10 years without success of finding his history prior to 1853 marriage record in Columbus County, NC to Rebecca Hill. - It would be appreciated if you happen to have information you are willing to share. - Thank you for your contribution to Find A Grave.

Under Robert you have his daughter Esther married to James Priestly. It is our understanding from a Lowrimore researcher that the name Esther Priestly is a part of the estate paperwork. Do you know what document?

Thanks!

RE: Vanesha Jordan's father
All I know about Vanesha Jordan's father is a Joseph Jordan married to Ann in Horry County, SC in 1850 and 1860. He was the father of Solomon L. Jordan (1830-1913) who was in the SC 10th. I was looking for Vanesha's death certificate hoping to find out more about Joseph and Ann.

Vanesha Jordan's father
I question a page you are tending that says that Joseph Jordan (1806-1891) of Texas was the father of Vanisha Jordan Jones of Horry County, South Carolina.

Venicia/Vanisha/Fernisha Jones appears to be listed as Menisia Jordan living with Joseph and Ann Jordan in Horry County, SC in 1860, and listed as Venitia Jones in Liberty County, GA in 1880. She was listed with her husband William Jones and three daughters all born in SC.

The Joseph Jordan in Texas moved to Mississippi around 1850 according to the his children birthplaces in the 1880 census, and so would not have been the Joseph Jordan in Horry County in 1860.

Hi Keith,

Looks like it's in pending status. I'll check back to ensure it has been updated and let Mrs. Evon Skipper know.

Thanks so much.

Updating info on Fate Skipper
Hi Keith,

Evon Skipper asked me for help in updating the information on the "FIND A GRAVE" page for Boyd Lafayette "Fate" Skipper who is buried at Cool Springs United Methodist Church cemetery. The Find a Grave page states Fate's father was Arthur Crawford Skipper but Evon assures me Fate's father was Issac Townsend Skipper.

How does one go about getting this information corrected?

Thanks, Jody Nyers

Elias Martin would certainly be the right age to have served in the Revolution. I am not aware of any specifics, if so. You might want to check with the South Carolina Archives.

Kind regards,

I'm completely comfortable with that decision. It would make sense that they should be in the same cemetery. Keep me in mind if you discover any new connections.

Kind regards,

RE: Moses Lowrimore
No, my grandfather was named after his his grandfather. His dad was Tyson McKeever Lawrimore. There are different spellings of the last name within our direct line. My grandfather did name one of his sons Moses Milton Lowrimore Junior though. Gets confusing. We have to closely look at dob. My dad is 79 now and not in good health. I am anxiously trying to solve some mysteries for him before he passes away. It's a love project.

Hello Keith,
Would you transfer Moses M Lowrimore and Moses M Lowrimore of Old Ark Cemetery and Old Neck Cemetery to me? Any informations on the Lowrimores would be great. One is my paternal grandfather and the confederate soldier is my 5x paternal grandfather. Thank you!!

RE: Matthew Martin
Keith:

The Moses Martin you are referring to is younger than the Moses Martin, Sr. I was referring to. Some have placed this younger Moses Martin (Cuffy) as the son of Elias Martin. The older Moses Martin is mentioned in the FindaGrave memorial (# 107662553) that you wrote me about. He was on Maiden Down Bay by 1757 and likely earlier.

Both Moses Martin and Matthew Martin joined Gen. Marion's Regiment on the same day, 4 Nov 1775. So, these were two different men, likely father and son. He is referred to on a 1786 petition as Moses Martin, Senior. I think Moses Martin, Sr. is the father of many of the Martins who show in the Marion Co., SC area.

There was another group from North Carolina not related to ours. See www.MartyGrant.com

Both Moses Martin, Sr. and Matthew Martin's Revolutionary War service show as audited accounted: AA-4807 is Matthew Martin and AA-4807A is Moses Martin, Sr. As well, Bk P, Stub Entry # 460 issued to Moses Martin for steers and sheep for Militia use 1782. Bk T, Stub Entry # 495 to Matthew Martin for Militia duty 1785.

Moses Martin, Sr. can be traced back to an older Moses Martin who died in Colleton Dist., SC. See the Matthew Martin memorial for documentation.

I moved the Matthew Martin memorial to Harrington Cem. Thanks for the suggestion. May I post your comment? I won't use your name, just FindaGrave #.

Kind regards,

John

Keith:

I have spent some time trying to determine if Harrington Cemetery is the same one referred to in the DAR application of Mrs. Inez Martin Berry. She only mentioned that the land had been owned by George Reaves in 1927. I see now, since you have pointed it out, that this could well be the same cemetery. I had suspected that when I first looked into it. I am going to switch the burial location to Harrington. I wonder if that is where Matthew Martin's father, Moses Martin, is buried as well. Will you mind if I add your suggestion to the memorial?

My grandmother was nee' Martin and was a direct descendant.

Thank you!

Kind regards,

John

RE: Benjamin Davis
Hi. Thank you for responding to my message. I have the following on Rhoda Newell Davis Bullock:
Burial:

Bullock Cemetery
Prentiss
Jefferson Davis County
Mississippi, USA
from Findagrave

and thisfrom Bullock Twigs and Branches (Marie Upton):

"... buried at Rocky Hill Cemetery, which is the family cemetery on their old home place, on a bluff overlooking the Bethany Church. Only sandstone markers appear at their graves."

From Ms. Upton's book, Bethany Baptist Church was organized in 1819 in Lawrence County on the banks of Whitesand Creek, which is now Jefferson Davis County, near the junction of St. Stephens Road and the Jackson Military Road. Joel and Rhoda's place was on the outskirts of what is now Prentiss, near the crossroads "where St. Stephens Road from Natchez through Monticello to St. Stephens, Alabama, crossed the old Jackson's Military Road, cut by Andrew Jackson's men as they moved north from Madisonville, Louisiana."

I'm sure this is more info than you wanted!

I saw your message for Benjamin Davis. I'm trying to determine the Davis line that is mine. My third great grandmother was Rhoda Newell Davis. Possibly same line. Have you tested your DNA with Ancestry, 23andMe or Family Tree? If so, I'd like to see if we have a match. Thanks.

Keith,
The Allen Johnson that was Meschack's son that was born in 1822 died in 1862 I show married to Margaret McQueen. Is this the one?

Also, we have never proven that his middle name was Warren. There was an Allen Warren Johnson but he was not from Meshack.
