RE: Sippy Oakes
I was out there today with my husband and two of our grandchildren and we couldn't find it. That is why I was asking if you might remember.
I am gonna go and look again and take me something to cut the grass up off of some of the Oakes family graves.
Thanks for having it posted I remembered seeing it but not being able to go back and find.
I am married into the Oakes family.
Thanks Teresa

Hey Connie I was wondering if you can give me a direction of where Sippie Oakes grave is located in the cemetary at Ramah? Thanks and God Bless.

RE: Frances Lee Correction
Perhaps you should do it. As I said, the system didn't recognize her name to find her. Somehow my son looked her up and pointed out the death error.. It is perfectly understandable. The inscription was hard to read. Sylvia

Frances Lee Correction
Connie, Please correct the death date for my mother, Frances Tidmore the Oak Hill Cemetery, Union Springs, Alabama.
She died in 1992, not 1932.
Please also include her full name - Frances Tidmore Sumner Lee.
I tried to log in to correct it, but the system said she did not exist!!
Many Thanks - Sylvia Sumner lee Thorp

RE: Smilie Cemetery
Connie, I am in Troy much less since I retired. Anyone can contact me via email at: or by cell phone: 334-372-3044. I am in Eufaula much of the time. There are many people buried at Smilie Cemetery. The cemetery is roughly a acre in size. Ruth McPherson Brown transcribed the cemetery in 1954 and 1968. Most of the gravestones were gone by 1954.

RE: Smilie Cemetery
The cemetery has many more than 5 people buried in it. They are only 5 tombstones standing currently. Deed records from over the years excluded the sale of the cemetery(1 acre more or less). It is my understanding that cemeteries can't be bought or sold by law and that is why the old deeds excluded the one acre cemetery. I have many Thompson and Smilie kin buried there. There are Silers buried there as well along with others. I have also been told there were slaves buried in the cemetery or nearby.

RE: Smilie Cemetery
It has been a while since I have visited the page. My email is and my cell is 334-372-3044. I am not in Troy that often since my wife has been sick but you can reach me at the above contacts. Also, I have found info online that Elizabeth's fathers name was Jesse Allen. The info I have handed down lists West Allen as her father. Online info also has Captain Allen Thompson of Jones County Georgia dying in 1814. I can seem to contact the person who posted it as it was back around 2000. Elizabeth and Captain Allen Thompson are my GGG grandparents. I am through their son Francis Marion Thompson. Records also indicate the Col. Robert Smilie and Elizabeth married on July 2nd, 1815 after the death of her first husband Allen Thompson.

James Jackson Davis
Thanks so much Connie. I am currently working on our family history and we have an Annie Kate Dukes married to James J. Davis who died around this time and I am trying to determine if this is indeed the James Jackson Davis buried here.
Would really appreciate knowing if you find anything on him that would relate to Annie Kate Dukes.
Thanks again!

Connie, are you related to James J. Davis? I am trying to determine who his wife was and was wondering if there was any way you could help identify who she was. Is this cemetery still in operation? If so, would you have a contact phone number for them? Thanks for any help you can offer.

RE: Cunningham - Oak Hill
Connie, transfer would be much appreciated! Joseph H. Cunningham is 110339432 and his daughter Annie Spann 107910500. Sallie Cunningham 110339352 was another daughter. Columbus Cunningham was either Joseph's son or nephew, I need to do more research to sort him out. We're just so thrilled to be able to find them. Funny how Joseph is in the 1866 state census in Macon Co. then disappears. I didn't know that Bullock Co. was created in 1866. Joseph died in 1867, but by then it was Bullock. So in realty he never left. And thanks to you I was able to track down his probate records yesterday in Bullock Co. database, yay!

Rudy's grandmother was from Montgomery but her ancestors were in Alabama for many generations. In Pike County she was descended from the Siler family of the Orion area. There was a big old abandoned plantation house my husband's mother remembered visiting when she was a child. I believe it was the Solomon Siler house. I hope we can get out to that area one day. :-)

Cunningham - Oak Hill
Connie, bless you and thank you for your work at Oak Hill Cemetery in Union Springs! Thanks to you we were able to locate the final resting place of my husband's 4th great-grandfather, Joseph H. Cunningham, as well as his daughter Annie Jane Spann and her husband. We are still working on identifying and submitting more links to get the family connected. May I have your permission to use the photo of Joseph H. Cunningham's headstone on our family tree on Ancestry? Many thanks, Amy

Hi Connie,

Thanks for all your findagrave contributions.

I believe the name is incorrect for Sarah Thompson Barbaree. Sarah rather than Sharon.

Thanks so much for the photos of her grave. My brother and I were there last year and we found NJE's headstone but not hers. I guess we didn't did deep enough. Thanks for cleaning up the area also.

RE: Timothy/Georgia Faulk
Yes indeed I am very interested!!!! My main intrest is Georgia Starling because her sister Mary Elizabeth is my 2nd great grandmother who married Alvarado "Allie" Carr. These two headed to where I live in northern Lousisana but then just fell off the map. Naturally their ancestry is so much a mystery to me. Any and all info you have on Starlings,Carr's or Carloty Caroline Fleming (Georgia and Elizabeths mother) would mean so much!

Thank You!!

Lula Walker #117843161
Hi Connie! In your memorial for Lula Walker White, you have a note that she was moved from Oakwood Cemetery. Someone else submitted a record for the Oakwood location back in 2001, and I think one of them should be deleted. That's not the reason for my note, however. Do you know anything about Lucinda? She was married to a J.N. White briefly in 1891-92, but they divorced shortly after the birth of their son, Clifford (# 117840404). I believe that "J.N. White" may be a half-sibling to my great grandfather, and I am trying to connect the dots. Let me know if you have any info, or if this is just a random contribution. Thanks in advance. -Chase White

RE: Dorothy Sellers Hovater
Thank you for your reply. I don't need a transfer since I am not directly related to Dorothy or her family. I will add a photo in case any of her relatives see it.
I appreciate all you've done. She has been "lost" for many years and I'm so happy to know when she passed and where she rests. I don't think I should link her to my uncle, under the circumstances.

Thanks again! Carrie

Thank you, I appreciate it. I love genealogy and Find-A-Grave is a great tool for people who live out of town. Joseph Anna/Josie/Jodie McLendon Jones is my great-grandmother.

Dorothy Sellers Hovater
Dorothy Jeannette Sellers Hovater was married to my mother's brother, Rufus Henry Hovater 23 Feb 1947 in Colbert Co, AL. They had no children. When my uncle passed away in Nov 1953 she no longer wanted to remain in Colbert Co and moved back to Bullock or Montgomery Co. My understanding is she was an RN and worked for the Veteran's Administration. Our family had no further contact with her. She didn't remarry. I've wondered for years when she passed away and where she was buried. Thank you for your memorial. I have a photo of her in the early 1940's. Do you mind if I add it to her memorial? I've thought of her often over the past 60 years and always thought of her as "Aunt Dot".

Thanks Connie. Sorry for not getting back sooner. Caught up in work and the family. I will be making a road trip to see the grave. I live in Cumming, GA not to far away. Things slip with time and try to remember when we can.
