Hooper Home Place
Davis, Was real excited to see a picture of the Hooper Home Place. My Grandmother was Edith Newton who's Father was Thomas Newton Son of Nancy McWilliams Daughter of Thomas Hooper. My GrandMother Edith spent many of her younger years at the Hooper Home and told me a lot about it but only to now have seen what it looks like. THANKS for posting. I would love to know how you came upon this picture and what relative may have had it. Again that's for posting

Jesse M McCollum (1861-1926)
Jesse's death certificate states his father is George McCollum and his mother is Anne Boman.

George Beamon McCollum
George's parents are Jesse Miller McCollum (1861-1926) and Nancy Louise Miller (1863-1944). When I get all of Jesse's records complied and get his life story written I want to transfer Jesse back into your care. May take me a couple of weeks with the holidays coming up. I will let you know before I transfer him back. :) J

Jesse Miller Mccollum (1811)
Davis, I am having great luck finding Jesse's records on ancestry.com.(10 so far and still adding). I think (?) I have found his military record. Any chance you know what regiment he was in. Thanks, Jill

RE: George Felton McCollum
I keep running into conflicting information. David's middle name could be different, with initial "I".

I found Luda's obituary and it says she was born 15 May 1859.

It also says she was buried by her husband (who predeceased her by 11 years) in the Russell cemetery, but doesn't say what city. Having a difficult time finding the correct location.

RE: George Felton McCollum
This is what I've gleaned from census & other records on Ancestry, but can't vouch for absolute accuracy. For instance, Luda McCollum's death age is listed as 80, but if the birth month & year in the 1900 census is correct, she would have been 69 when she died. Needs more scrutiny.

Father:
David Washington McCollum
b. Nov 1860 Georgia
d. abt 1928

Mother:
Luda Louisiana Martin
b. May 1870 Georgia
d. 19 Dec 1939 Bartow Co, GA

Thomas Wells, Elizabeth Norton
They were married on Aug. 20, 1843 in Newton Co., GA. They had three children within the next four years of Thomas's life, plus caring for the children of Thomas's first marriage to Martha Ramsey.

Elizabeth married Jeremiah Huff in 1853 and had three more children.

RE: Yes!
Davis, happy to be able to help. I was pleasantly surprised when I found this grave as it is very nicely maintained. Obviously someone has put some time into "keeping" the site. There was fresh pine straw and the nice evergreen boxwood making it seem fresh and alive. I love to see maintained plots, ironically, I have elected to be cremated! But having spent much time in cemeteries....I would like to have a stone somewhere.

RE: Charles Higgason Anderson
That's great! Do you know if Thomas (Thompson) married a Sarah Coleman? I've found out what happened to the rest of William's children. Now, I'm trying to figure out the parents of Elizabeth Nixon (pretty sure it is Edward Nixon and Elizabeth ?) and Julia Puckett.

We have a White reunion in Oct.every year in Gordon Co., GA, not too far from where William White is buried in Villanow, GA. We would love to have you.

RE: Photo of 1910 Old Soldiers Reunion
Thanks for your reply. The photo I was referring to was on the memorial of Sgt Oscar Benson Find a grave memorial #14876206 but I would be very interested in seeing the others too. I have created a virtual cemetery for the men of the 16th Georgia Volunteers and have so far located and linked nearly 450 memorials of men who served in the 16th GA. Any idea if any of the men in the pictures served in the 16th?

David do you have the names of the men in the 1909 or 1910 Old Soldiers reunion photograph you posted? I would love to have the photo emailed along with the list of names if you have them. My email address is lelliott19@aol.com Thanks

Are you related to this family? I am descended from William White by his 2nd wife Julia Puckett. We have been looking for Charles' parents, Thomas and Anna White Anderson for years, found them thanks to Find a Grave! If you know about this family, would love to compare notes and photos!

RE: David McCollum (1802-1863)
I had posted those McCollum Find A Grave entries for someone else, they are not my relatives. I know nothing more than what is posted. However, I know there were many McCollums listed in the 1800's census records of Perry County, Illinois and David seems to be one of the more common names used in those families, also know they were from N Carolina, so a possibility they were from the same family as David. Have you tried the Perry Co, IL websites?

Hi Davis,
I saw a photo you posted for James Starling Kemp. Do you have any info you can share about the Kemps who lived west of Kennesaw Mt? If so, I will send an email.
Thanks.

Jane Armstrong McMichen
Hey, I am a descendant of Jane Armstrong McMichen. I saw that you had added a photo of her to the site. It looks like a family photo. I was curious if you had any idea where the photo came from, or time it was taken. Also, are you connected to her family? Thanks.

Many thanks for getting the headstone for William onto Find A Grave. It is a great picture.

I wonder if you'd allow me to use the pic in the family research, with credit, of course?

You have posted quite an odd photo for this memorial that almost appears to be clip art. But that would be just silly. Could you caption the photo so that visitors will know how it relates? -Thank you.

The picture is up for Salis. The middle initial is a K on the stone. I think it should be a C for Cary.
