James Phillips
Thomas and Lucinda Phillips
I have two original letters written by my great-great grandfather, Thomas G. Phillips (Philips as he spelled it) to his son James Wesley Phillips ( my great-grandfather) in Calhoun County, Alabama. The letters were written from Mississippi. His wife, Lucinda, is buried in Hopewell Cemetery, Hopewell Presbyterian Church around Blue Springs, Mississippi. I visited her grave in 1975, the same time I visited Thomas G. Phillips's grave at Gaston Cemetery, near Bryce Crossroads Battlefield.

R. L. Williams
Adolphus Quinn
I noticed you placed a photo request for this person: Adolphus Quinn. There is a grave listed on FindAGrave at memorial#62581831 with the name Russell Adolphus Quinn and the dates are the same as well. This may aid the photo request to get completed. He was a Confederate in the Civil War, notable and hopefully well marked at the grave sites.

Phillips DNA
Toni, I'm part of a Phillips family of Calhoun and St. Clair Co, AL (Ohatchee/Ragland). Several different Phillips families in that area. Have any of your male Phillips done the DNA test, that's the only way we can sort them out. Joel (my line) and Thomas (married Levina Box) both born SC, probably brothers, have matching DNA. Hunting for more Phillips kinfolk via DNA.

William M Phillips
Hi there Toni! I see you have William M Phillips in Coleman County, Texas. Do you believe that he is the son of John Abner and Polly Phillips of Calhoun County, Alabama? Looking up his death certificate, the birth date matches, but the informant did not know his mother's or father's name nor places of birth. I don't know where my information came from (probably imported data from a cousin's family tree), but I have him as William L Phillips born 6 Apr 1860. That date is a perfect match with William M's death certificate. The only other record I have found for him is the 1860 census where he is shown simply as William Phillips. Please let me know if you have other information that would confirm his parents' identity. I would love to be able to add this info to my tree!! Thanks - Rick

Many thanks for the transfer Toni! Will be well cared for - promise!

RE: Lina McGregor Crawford
Hi Toni,
Lina McGregor was my G Grandmother, but I don't have anymore info on her right now. I do have some wonderful pics posted on her memorial that you might have seen (#48712190). I stopped working on this in 2010 when I lost my mom and one of her brothers a few months apart. Maybe this will get me started again, I do have some contacts that might be able to help on this end. Please stay in touch and I'll see what I can come up with. Doug

Thank you for the invite. This is a very odd branch for me. I never knew any of these people because of some sad circumstances, but am researching the line anyway because I want to know the origins of all my lines.

Charles & Gertrude Roach

You took a picture of Charles A. Roach and Ellen Gertrude Noah's headstone and attached it to their memorials. A family member has created a duplication to contain family info and links to other family members. Could you attach the photo to the other memorials in Seven Springs Cemetery, Jacksonville, Calhoun, alabama for Charles Amos Roach and Ellen Gertrude Noah.

I noticed your picture of Ida Phillips. Her brother was Henry Newton. Do you happen to have a picture of him or his family? Thanks.

RE: J. B. Gilliland
Yes, I think in your case we are safe on the family line. Doesn't sound like there are many in your direst line for this name to be claimed by anyway.

As for the "4 generation" guideline, it is covered under the "Help With Find A Grave" link that is available to be viewed on the site. Go there, then go to the "Editing & Correcting Memorial Information", then down to the "How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?" question. It will explain their "rules" as the staff has set them. Most of us will "bend" the rules, at times, depending on situation.

Look forward to seeing new info or pics you will add to his entry! If you need help with anything, just holler!

RE: Transfer of JB Gilliland
I am no relation to this name (that I know of). I have transferred to you for safe-keeping. You are however just a tad past the 4 generation rule for the Find A Grave guideline of transfers. Therefore the only thing I ask is that IF someone closer in direct relationship to this name comes along, that you will also kindly transfer over to them.

Thanks for sponsoring the entry.

RE: John Henry Newton
Yes this is his family. The ones labeled Newton. His wife was Rosa Hagan. Rosa was the daughter of Wm and Amanda Hagans. My connection is with Wm's 3rd or 4th wife Moselle Reed. I only know of another Hagan that might can help you. He is Pat Hagan. His e-mail is
Let me hear from you if have trouble reaching him.

Littlejohns in Friendship Baptist
I will be posting your photorequests today. Wanted you to know that there is an addidional Littlejohn that I found. James W (Jim) Littlejohn 1839-1869 that I will be posting a memorial for. I did not, however, find Mary. I will go back when I have a chance and do a detailed inspection of some of the field stones which may have information scratched into them. There are a lot of unidentified graves in this cemetery.
