Barton Stone Clapp and Mary Ann Cunningham Clapp
With all due respect, the information given concerning Mary Ann Cunningham Clapp at Mt.Olive and her death date is not correct. First, JBS Clapp, who is at Mount Olive was the son of my gg-grandfather, William K. Clapp, not Barton Stone Clapp.
Secondly, Barton Stone Clapp, William K.Clapp's older brother, was married 3 times. 1st) There is no documentation as to the name of his first wife who was the mother of 5 of his 6 children. They were married about 1835-1836. Some people confuse her with Mary Cunningham, his 3rd wife. At this time he may have been living in either Madison County or Kentucky where his father had moved. Barton Stone Clapp's first wife died between 1845-1848 after the birth of Barton Stone, Jr. and before his 2nd marriage.
2nd) On Dec. 29,1848 he married Catharine Bridges which in on record at the Marshall Co. Courthouse and online "Alabama,County Marriages, 1809-1950" at Catharine Bridges' brother, Edmond, married Barton Stone Clapp's daughter, Sermerimus, and her sister, Dicy, married his brother, Lewis. Barton Stone Clapp and Catharine Bridges Clapp had one daughter, Elizabeth Ann, or Betty. Catharine died in May 1850 according to "The Heritage of Marshall County", p. 79-80, 'The Bridges Family of Marshall Co.'
3rd) On April 25, 1860, while serving as legislator from Marshall Co., Barton Stone Clapp married Mary Ann Cunningham, a widow, actual maiden name not known, in Butler Co., Alabama. This marriage is recorded in Butler Co., Book 1858-1864, p.249, and online at "Alabama, Marriages, 1816-1957" at Barton S Clapp and Mary Clapp are also on the 1860 Marshall Co., Census, at Cottonville which is near Grant. After BS Clapp's death in 1862, Mary Cunningham Clapp petitioned as a widow for part of his estate between 1866-1879 at the Marshall Co. Courthouse. On court papers she is said to be living in Montgomery. See "Alabama, Estate Files, 1830-1976 - Barton Clapp" online at though there are 268 documents. In 1880, Mary Clapp, Barton Stone Clapp's widow, is on the Montgomery, Alabama, US Census living with a niece. In 1900, she is on the Jefferson Co., Alabama, US Census, in Woodlawn with the same niece. The 1903 Birmingham City Directory, see, has "Clapp, Mary A (wid Barton S)" also in Woodlawn. There is no documentation of her death or burial.

RE: Griggs
Thanks for your kind words--it was my pleasure. I was doing work on my nephew's genealogy. His great-grandmother was Mattie Mae Griggs Bell, and I found so much of her family at the Elm Springs Cemetery. Happy searching!

RE: Beck Cemeteries
The Find A Grave Beck memorial in Marchall County, used my picture from Benton County. I guess someone, doing her best to be helpful, is not familiar with cemetery locations in North Miss.

I know there is a Beck Cemetery in Benton County, south of Ashland. But I do not know of one in Marshall County.

RE: Beck Cemeteries
From east to west;
I live in Tippah County,

The cemetery is in Benton County, just south of Ashland.

Marshal County is the next county, west.

William H. Harrison Cranmer
Hello, I am looking for more information about the parents and siblings of William H. H. Cranmer. I believe my 3rd great-grandfather, William Cranmer (Memorial# 66223267), was his younger half-brother. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

Edward Newton Brown
Fairmount has an Edward Newton Brown Jr who passed in 1979. Block 23, lot 66, sec 16. I'll look around when I get there. Does he have a Find A Grave memorial yet? If not, create one, and I'll get the photo.

Yep, I got that. I didn't realize the request didn't use the full name provided. (new at this.) Anyway, I tried a second time, and they looked all kinds of ways. Frances, Evelyn, Fannie, Frances E, Frances H. She asked if she might be buried with anyone else?

RE: Great Western Cattle Trail
I am sorry that we did not meet at the Abilene rodeo this past May. I encourage you to pursue your desire to walk the old cattle trails. Much history is there and the people that created that history deserve our love and respect.
I am currently researching the early history of driving Texas cattle to faraway markets.It all begins with driving cattle from deep in south Texas to the Spanish missions in east Texas and western Louisiana. The missionaries knew that a place where food was usually available and in abundance would attract Indians and this attraction would allow the missionaries an opportunity to represent to the Indians that their God provided the basic needs of food and shelter to his believers.
Eventually the mission efforts waned and New Orleans became a large population center and port of call. Driving cattle from Texas to the New Orleans market from Texas turned Texas beef into gold coins and trade goods to return to Texas with. Limited supplies in Texas assured profits from the sale of these supplies to pioneers and settlers in Texas. New Orleans anticipated that the marketing of Texas cattle at New Orleans would provide the means to reestablish the wrecked economy of New Orleans after the end of the Civil War. This history has been largely ignored by writers of history for some reason. Hollywood and authors of dime- novels were more impressed with the romantic sound of "The Chisholm Trail" than the history of the early cattle drives east out of Texas. E. C. "Teddy Blue" Abbott promoted "WE POINTED THEM NORTH" and the telling of the story of driving cattle north. Recently Jim Bob Jackson drew attention to a similar effort when he published "THEY POINTED THEM EAST FIRST. This reasonable priced book sells briskly at the Wallisville Herritage Center at Wallisville, Texas. This book is based on information found in a diary written by William Berry Duncan, an early trail driver, between 1842 and 1867.
I wish you the best of luck walking the trails. I have done the same for the past several years. I always meet interesting people along the trail with some fascinating stories to tell.

Book for Stonewall County
Vicki, I am in Arizona, not Texas. If you got to Aspermont during the week, you can ask at the courthouse or library about the book. It was printed by the Stonewall County Historical Commission. The name I have who are or were on the commission are Billy Wayne and Lula McMeans, Larry or Mary Helen Coats, Margie Lott, Jim Ward, Martha McDowell, Linda Messick, Gwen or Dorothy Myers, or Anit Dozier. Printed in 1979. Stonewall County, Between the Forks of the Brazos.
I am thinking that some of those listed here might not be living anymore. It's worth asking around tho. I would imagine that there is a copy at the Library there.
Hope this helps.

RE: Electa Perkins

I contacted the office and found that Edgar Marshall Perkin's grave is located in Section E-201-1. I took a picture of his marker and the empty space next to him. Could this be where Electa Perkins is located?

I have both of these photos and will wait to hear if you would like to have my copies.

Glad to hear you will be in Lubbock and can do some on the ground research.

Let me know if I can be of any help

I got my book out tonight, and there is a photo of Warren Pringle Moore age 80 (no photo credit given) and I was wondering if you have a copy of what was written in the Stonewall County book? (Between the Forks of the Brazos.) I would be happy to copy for you and send it if you don't have it. You could send mailing address to my email addy if you would like.
