RE: Rathel
Thanks for the info. My great Uncle, Eager "Clinton" Thompson told me that Lonie and Lomie were twins...however I was told by DPT that Lonie was her great uncle and that she was 4 when he died and that she does NOT know a Lomie. It is very striking to me that they were born on the same day and that they are both buried in Corinth Cemet. in Iron City, Ga.

RE: Julia
I don't think so.... I was 30 years old when my grandfather died and I never heard him say his mother was married twice.

File transfers
Do you use Dropbox? If not I can send documents through email attachments. Spent a couple of hours at the library going through the Folks Huxford volumes. Haven't finished all of them, but suprisingly little information on the Studstills, yet they make up a significant part of the population now.

RE: Thank you
Got it and added it to my list. I'll start by checking the Lowndes County cemeteries book. If no luck, I'll see what Folks Huxford had to say in his 10 volumes. Studstills were quite prodigious in this area (South Ga.)

RE: Thank you
Glad I could help. I live in Lowndes County and am doing extensive research into several family lines. I also have the "Survey of Lowndes County Georgia Cemeteries 1825-1987." I have access to the Folks Huxford genealogical collection as well. I'll check out the FB page and be glad to send anything your way that I can find.

No I had not seen it thanks, much.

Do you need her transferred?

Added by Donna McPherson on Sep 27, 2013 8:01 AM

Thanks for posting your info and just thought I'd share. My grandmother was Linnie Cleo Miller Hardman; her father was James Delaware Miller; his father was Seaborn D. Miller.

That's as far as I've gone. We live in Central FL. JDM brought the family down here in the 20's. In two weeks I'm taking my little children up to do grave rubbings of JDM and SDM. Corinth and Flat Creek cemeteries where they are are only 10 miles apart.

Regarding Elias M. Miller, where is the old home place? I've had some relatives go up to the Miller reunion in years past, but I never did. FYI, we just sold JDM's farm in 2012. It's in the Donalsonville area, but I don't know exactly where.

Thanks, Reid Hardman

Did you find information on Millers at Liberty Hill?

Added by Martha Sellers Bryson on Jun 21, 2013 2:03 PM

I plan to do pictures of Salem Seminole soon and I know Millers are buried there. Jeanette Miller goes to my church and her husbands family is buried there.

RE: correction
Actually the Wallers are my family and I asked my sister if she knew about Millers buried there. Elaine said she had been going to Liberty Hill for years and had not seen any graves for Millers. I need to go back because I need to do pictures of the black section. I have not done the flour or rubbings because I don't really make a trip just for special graves. I had taken some pictures of other graves and there was a couple who kept sending me messages correcting me and posting some picture here and there so I deleted all the pictures I had not posted. This fall, after the heat and gnats, I do plan to go back and if you can find any more information, let me know and I will try a way to find them. Some of the graves in the Waller section have been destroyed by falling trees. My brothers are supposed to help us clean that section up in the fall.

RE: Mothers Home Cemetery
Hi Jason,

I've been moving so sorry for the delay in responding. It would make things go faster if you went to each memorial and sent the corrections/additions for each memorial.
Thank you so much,

RE: Edward Deleman
I Deleted mine, my info is below if you want to use any of it,


Death: May 6, 1864, At Sea [Edit Dates]

Ordinary Seaman Edward Deleman, US Navy, Civil War, killed in ordnance accident on Bark USS Restless. 6 May. 1864.

USS Restless (1861) was a barque acquired by the Union Navy during the American Civil War.

She was used as a gunboat by the Union Navy to patrol navigable waterways of the Confederacy to prevent the South from trading with other countries.

Purchased at New York City in 1861

Restless was purchased from Everett and Hawley at New York City on 26 August 1861 and commissioned the following December, Acting Volunteer Lt. Edward Conroy in command.
Civil War service
Operating with the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron

Ordered south upon commissioning, Restless sailed to Norfolk, Virginia, took on supplies for the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron, and toward the end of January 1862 arrived at Port Royal, South Carolina.

Assigned to the blockade force off Charleston, South Carolina, she took up station off Bull's Bay on 4 February. On the 11th, two escaped slaves provided information on the ships carrying food into Charleston, their use of inland water routes, and conditions in the blockaded city.

Two days later, Restless, following that information, discovered three vessels within the shoals. On the 14th, armed boats from Restless captured and destroyed the sloop Edisto and the schooners Wandoo, Elizabeth, and Theodore Stony. All vessels had been carrying rice.

At the end of March, Restless put into Port Royal for provisioning. By then she had intercepted five more blockade runners; two schooners were kept as prizes; one sloop and two schooners were destroyed.
Operations in the Charleston area

Ordered back to the Charleston area on 15 April, she took up station between Rattlesnake Shoal and Caper's Island. On 2 May she captured the schooner Flash and sent her to New York for adjudication. On the 11th she returned to Bull's Bay.

Between then and the end of October, Restless captured one steamer, Scotia, two sloops, and a large canoe; and assisted in intercepting two other steamers and a schooner.

In November and December, inland expeditions were stepped up. On 5 November, a shore party sent to Palmetto Point intercepted a mail shipment bound for Charleston which provided further intelligence for the campaign against blockade runners. In December, shore parties burned the salt works on Harbor Creek and destroyed Confederate batteries and magazines on Bull's Island.

In late January 1863, after 13 months of duty, Restless sailed north for docking and repairs. By mid-June, however, she had returned to blockade duty.
Reassigned to the Eastern Gulf Blockade

Assigned to the Eastern Gulf Blockading Squadron, she operated off the coast of western Florida for the remainder of the war. Initially stationed at St. George's Sound, she captured a schooner and a sloop in Peace Creek, Charlotte Harbor in early July and took the schooner Erniti 60 miles off Tampa Bay on 19 August.

In October she relieved Roebuck in St. Andrew's Sound and remained on duty there until November 1864. During that time she seized several vessels and destroyed salt works which supplied Confederate forces in U.S. state of Georgia.

In mid-November, the bark sailed to Key West, Florida, for repairs; then, in January 1865, took up station again in Charlotte Harbor. At the end of March, she shifted to St. Joseph's Bay where she remained until the end of the war.
End-of-war operations and final decommissioning

Toward the latter part of June 1865, Restless, carrying surplus ordnance supplies, rounded the Florida peninsula and sailed north. She was sold at auction in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 21 September the same year.

Arthur J. Sykes (107891468)

I wanted to let you know I placed several photos to the memorial of Arthur J. Sykes. I also noticted that you were hoping for photos of Clara Sykes. There is a Louise C. Sykes buried right next to Arthur. I took the liberty of creating that memorial as I did not find one when I looked and added them there as well.

Please reference Louise C. Sykes (108466108)

Hope the photos were what you had in mind.

RE: Efie Studstill
Thank YOU for updating the memorial! If you have more memorials in Greenwood - you'll probably be hearing from me again. I'm going through cemetery records compiled into a book and trying to make sure we have all our Greenwood memorials as complete as we can get them! I think I'm insane for doing this...
