Elusive Grave of Lewis Griffin Roper

If you ever find anything on the subject I would be forever grateful to know it.

The subject, Lewis Griffin Roper is my GG Grandfather. He died 27 May 1847 from a fractured skull. He was struck by a slave with a hoe. His plantation was north west from Shellman, GA. On land lots 153 and 154.
I don't know if he was buried in a cemetery or on his plantation.

I thought you might be looking around in that area of Randolph County.

Thank you very much for being so thoughtful and transferring my grand aunt's memorial over to me. The gesture means a lot. And I want to give you a great big thank you for creating her memorial in the first place, and then for maintaining it. Your work doesn't go unnoticed. Thanks again.

Benjamin F. Sexton
You have Benjamin F. Sexton buried at Edom Cemetery in Edom, Texas. The Military record are those of my Great Great Grandfather Benjamin Franklin Sexton buried in Ola/Morrow Cemetery, in Kaufman, Texas. He died in the home of William Franklin Sexton. His dates are August 8, 1836 to Jan 20, 1929. His DC say he was born in Virginia and was 92 when he died. He lived with his family in Prairieville, Matilda Richardson Busby, Levi his stepson, Mandy Sexton Walker, William Franklin Sexton, and Texanna Sexton Kilgore. He is on the 1880 census in Kaufman, 1900 Census in Van Zandt, 1910 Census in Van Zandt, and 1920 Census in Van Zandt. A.D. Sapp son is living next to him on the 1920 Census. His father is Sampson Sexton from Scott County, Virginia. His brother is Robert Sexton who join the same unit as he did, born 1831 ScottCounty, Virginia. His military stone is at Ola/Morrow Cemetery buried beside his wife Tilda. I've contacted the Sextons at Edom and they are not related to Benjamin F. Sexton 1837 but to Ben F. Sexton 1892, son of Christopher R Sexton son of John Chamberlain Sexton who was also in the CSA. I need to know where the information you have came from, before our Sexton Reunion.
Thank you
Stephen W. Johnson

I'm wondering if you have access to anymore information on this memorial. I think it is likely my great uncle John William Hall born in August 14, 1857 Elbert County GA and died October 14, 1915 Enid, OK. This from a family bible. I would love to link him to his parents and his son to him, if I had enough information to do that.

Ignazio Sigismondo
Thank you for attaching the image of Ignazio to his memorial. I have added the additional info to the bio area, please delete it from under the photo. Probably keep the first paragraph since it pertains to the passport where the photo came from.

Would you like me to transfer this memorial to you?

What is his full name & DOB. Maybe I can figure it out from that. If you have where he is buried that would be helpful too. Or where they lived early on. Thanks.

Daniel Gould Hill
I just want to add some information regarding Daniel Gould Hill, Find A Grave Memorial# 104116106, buried at Antioch Cemetery in Cass County, Texas. He was the son of William Hill and Jane Cole. Your information regarding his marriage to Temperance Cole is correct, but he was first married to Mary Theresa "Tressie" Mullins, who apparently died before 1897. We're not sure where she's buried. Together they had several children, including my wife's great grandmother, Sarah Jane Hill (married Benjamin Franklin Draper). They are all buried at Antioch Cemetery.

Thanks for all your hard work.
