Thank you for your extra effort. We were trying to get a possible DAR member proof for her Roby line.

Walker Reynolds
I am very interested in the portrait you posted of Major Walker Reynolds. He is my great great grandfather. My family has two other portraits of the Reynolds family, and I believe they were done by the same artist at the same time. Could you tell me more about this portrait?

Rebecca Martin
Sunnyside Cemetery
Hi, Mike,
I have always known the cemetery where my relatives (McElhenney) are buried as the Jemison Cemetery, but could not find it in Find A Grave, so I took it upon myself to document, not only my relatives, but all I could find there. Later, I found the connection to Sunnyside Cemetery as being one in the same. I noted the connection in my Jemison Cemetery heading page so others could go there to find more information that I wasn't able to give. I appreciate the heads up and hope no one is offended at my attempt to add information for others to see.
Sincerely, Rebecca Martin

Thank you Mike, I didn't realize there was already a picture until I had sent it.

The Stringer House at 203 Margaret Street was built for Roland Lee Stringer, my grandfather. We sold it to Bliss/Waller and they are only the second owners. I have noticed some pictures of homes on the find a grave site. The other is the McMillan Home on McMillan Street which belonged to James White McMillan and wife, Laura Anne Hendrick, I think they were the second owners. and they were my great grandparents. Mary Lurena McMillan was my grandmother and the only grandparent I knew. I lived in the Stringer home during WW11 with my mother, Frances Louise Stringer Bennett and sister, Margaret Bennett-Cianciola. Talladega and the Ritz Theater where I went many times during my childhood are fond memories of mine along with other people I knew. My dad, Archibald Bennett was in the Army and served overseas and he was in WW1 as he was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1896 and came to America in 1925.
Thanks for all your work and contributions,
Frances Bennett Maddox

Mary Russell
To answer your question about the photo for the grave of Mary Russell. My wife and I spent about a week in Alabama (about 25 years ago when we lived in Texas)going to as many cemeteries as we could find in Talladega and Dallas Counties. We used the Upchurch book and one for the Dallas County cemeteries as a guide. We did the best we could at the time but have since found many more family members that we missed. We now live in California and aren't able to travel much. We recently came across some of the photos we took and added them to the Find-A-Grave Memorials.
Regards - John

Edgar Heacock #159032173
Mike, again I wish to thank you not only for the transfers of my Heacock family tree, but for placing them on the internet. I am truly grateful for websites like Find-a-Grave, I joined it early on, and actually would duplicate my efforts of placing my family on-line with multiple websites back then, not knowing which one would survive. Find A Grave has been excellent. If you know of any other Heacocks, please transfer, and I'll find out about them and offer each a history of their lives.

I have transferred Edgar to Riser Family Cemetery as you suggested below. He had been at Mt Zion.

Thanks so much, Doni

I didn't move his memorial to the Riser Family Cemetery before transferring it, but he is indeed interred there-as opposed to " Riser's Chapel Old Cemetery" as the cemetery compilation had him listed.

Doni Wright
Mike, would you please consider transferring me the children, Dr Joseph & George of Julia & John Heacock. I have a lot of history on both of them I would like to share.

Thanks so much, Doni

RE: Julia A Riser
You're welcome, an unforeseen benefit of doing the three cemeteries identified in a 1990 county cemetery compilation as all being at that location across from Mt. Zion CME Church. The compilation only mentioned two other Heacocks, both infant children of Dr. Heacock whose memorials I have linked to his.

The cemetery compilation is organized as an alphabetical index of cemeteries, but has a surname glossary so if you're looking for someone in particular let me know and I'll see if there listed. Good luck in the quest !

Thank you for letting me know "Belle" was in the Riser Family Cemetery, and for the photo!

Do you know if there are any more Heacock's in the cemetery?

Alline Bonner Armentrout
Thanks for letting me know about the tombstone of Alline Bonner Armentrout in Silver Run Cemetery. I would very much appreciate it if you would transfer the memorial to me. I will compare both memorials to make sure they have the same information and links and then delete mine in Calhoun County. Thanks so much.

RE: Wm Frank Bowden
Thank you for so quickly and thoroughly answering my questions! I wish everyone we deal with in matters of genealogy was so forthcoming. Interesting you should mention your relative being adamant about James being an Irish immigrant. Have you heard of Nicholas Bourden from Ireland? I'm beginning to think we might all be descended from him. I've been trying to connect him with Pierre Beaudoin from France, since Pierre had a son named Nicholas and they all fled to Dublin to escape religious persecution.
Also, do you have any info on James (1764-1840) Bowdoin's brother, Pleasant Macon Bowdoin?

Wm Frank Bowden
Please tell me where you got the info that you provide on Wm Frank Bowden of Coosa/Elmore counties in Alabama. I'm searching for my Bowdoin family ancestors and cannot find them further back than my ggggrandfather, William Bowdoin, of Autauga County, AL, born 1802 in NC. Your help will be much appreciated.

John L. Defriese (1830-1841)
According to familysearch, yes, Hiram and Margaret had a child named "John Lowery Defrees" or Defriese. Spelling changed a lot back then due to phonetic literacy issues. Lowery was Margaret's maiden name. John was born in 1830 according to the record and died by 1850 (or likely 1841 as you indicated). So, I don't see an issue with your suggested link.

RE: Charles F. Welcker stone inscription
Mike, I went by Chas Welcker's grave today and tried to read what was missing of the inscription. I filled in all the blanks except for one long section in the third line. I believe all the rest to be reasonable accurate.

RE: Alders Springs Cemetery
If you go to Alabama to visit Alders Springs cemetery go to Barfield Baptist church and contact the people there and they can get you in touch with the people that own the land that the cemetery is on. I don't remember the name of the owners of the land but they have a business selling meat chickens. There are only three markers in Alders Springs that have names on them all the others are just rocks that mark the graves. It shows 13 people buried there thru Find a Grave but if I remember there are more like 25. Owners of the land have a current list of people buried.
