Hi Vicki, My name is Brian Hughes; I'm from Missouri. My wife just traced back on my family on my Mom's (Dotson-Dodson)side back to yours. Thomas "Second Fork" Dodson is my sixth Great Grand Uncle...Amazing!! When she mentioned Thomas "Second Fork" Dodson, I had to look up second fork; one thing led to another and I found you. Thank you, and God bless you and yours.

RE: Transfer
You're more than welcome. I should have done it a long time ago so that you could add to it. If I have others that are in your family, let me know.

Hi - I am documenting the Ivy Lawn Cemetery and have added Lena Mae Hittson 139671680 - do you want to do the link to Hardwick Hittson to keep the order correct?

RE: Lela Hittson

It looks like Lela may have remarried a Crook and their children may have done it. See memorial #117857673, "Lela E Kroger Hittson Crook" in San Jon Cemetery.

"Digging up deadpeople"
Fear not, many of us have our families shaking their heads at us. "Mom, what are you doing?" "Playing with dead people, dear."

Most certainly. We have been, several times, and am planning on returning again this next year.

I am amazed how many people do not know about Findagrave's policies on so many items. I have been 'hollering' for years we need these to be more obvious. It's truly a shame.

I am afraid I am going to have to ask you to remove all the photos from this memorial as they have been taken from other websites, and if you visit the FAQ section, you can see this is strictly against Findagrave's policy.

Mary Hitson
I am trying to confirm/deny family lore concerning Indian Heritage.

We have been told that Mary Hitson was full Cherokee Indian and she was married to William Tolleson who was part Cherokee.
They are my 4x great grand parents.

Thank You

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.

RE: Photo Request Info
I'll be happy to go if you find any more info that would help locate her. They have a lot of Frances Browns, but none with that date or middle name listed. Fairmount's number is 303-399-0692
