RE: Message
I did speak to Joe Klump ,and he does have some
paperwork on the cemetery and will look through
them for me. It will take a few days. He said
Julie McKenzie also had some papers and he will
contact her. I'll let you know when I hear from

Good Morning Chuck

RE: Confederate Rest Cemetery
I do not have anything in writing, however, just
received a name and phone nbr of a Joe Klump of
Fairhope who has the "Book on the Confederaate
Cemetery". The person who gave me his name and
nbr said he has all the names of persons buried
in the cemetery. That remains to be seen as there
are no markers on the graves. A Mrs Grace
Hutchingson, now deceased, was supposed to have
documentation regarding the gift of the cemetery
property by David Wallace and Dr Showalter. I'll
ask Mr Klump if he has any info on that.
I'll let you know as soon as I hear anything.

RE: Recent e-mails
Hello Chuck.
Yes,I did receive the photos and thank you very much. The picture you identify as Pamala is that
of my grandmother Mary Jane Wallace Straughn. Also
the picture you indicate as that of Uncle "Manny"
we have as my mother's brother Rueben who died as
result of a diving accident. He made a shallow
dive off a wharf at the family home at Battles
Wharf, and broke his neck. My sister, who lives
in Spanish Fort Al has a postcard picture, the
same as yours and written on the back is the name
Rueben. Do you have anymore info?
Several years ago they did a ground penetrating
survey at the Confederate Rest Cemetery and found
there were 9 anomalies in the corner of the cemetery
where our relatives are buried. No markers on our
family members graves. There were wooden markers
however, a cousin, Jessie Wallace moved them to
clean and didn't know where to put them back, so
left them against the fence.
We have come to the conclusion that my mother's
father, James M Straughn, two brothers: Rueben
and Baby Marion plus David H, Polly Ann, their
son Benjamin Franklin, and daughters: Anna
Parilee, Molly and Maly are buried there also.
Not too far from them are the graves of Hetty
Wallace and Martha and John Meyers.
We have also tried to find info regarding the
fact that we were told that David H Wallace
donated part of the land for the cemetery.
No luck so far. If you go into the family tree
of James Marion Straughn you will find more pics
Yes, I live in San Antonio, originally from Mobile
Good to hear from you.

RE: Hattie Wallace
Hello Charles
Yes, I'm related to Hattie Wallace on my mothers
side. My Mom was Vera Straughn, daughter of Mary
Jane "Jenny" Wallace, Hattie's older sister. One of my gandfather, James Marion Straughn's
sister married an Edmunson, are you related?
I'm so interested in old photos of family members,
do you have any? I;m looking forward to hearing
from you.

Hi Charles,
I don't really do the pics anymore because I don't have a camera anymmore. If you go on his site and request a pic I'm pretty sure someone in the area will pick it up and get it for you. If not then let me know and I will run out to Northwood and take the pic for you! I did transfer his memorial to you.

Such flattery! It's funny, I had your g-parents in my tree but not connected. It was just a matter of connecting them, adding your parents and then you. Not to take away from you regard.

Based on the dates of David H Wallace's birth and his mother's death, it looks like she may have died having him of shortly there after.

RE: Name upgrade
How interesting! Too bad one of the children didn't have a name that started with a B - it might have been a hint as to what it stood for.

Thank you for sharing the information.
