RE: Miss Todie
.. you mentioned the Rev Bill Allison. Someone with the same name married my mother and father. I thought he was pastor at Mt Zion Baptist, my mother's church. He later became the chaplain of the old Fulton County Jail. I interviewed him when I was a reporter for the Atlanta Constitution. He was a great kidder and as I was leaving the jail, he called down from an upper floor: "Stop that woman." The guards must have been used to his antics because they laughed as they escorted me outside. Whew!

Nancy Wilson - Sodom Cemetery
Have you tried Elizabeth Wilson, or Nancy Whitehead? I always look for possible combos when I can't find the original name.

William and Mary Williamson
I found the photo of the Williamson's marker, yes they are buried together. I apologize for my shadow in the shot, the sun was behind me that day and difficult to eliminate shadows.

Hello there - sorry that you were not able to find the marker for Ruth McDonald. I called the cemetery and that's where they told me she is located. I recently searched and they do have a picture of her marker on that site. Thank you for your effort.

Corine Barton Nolan....
I note that Miz Nolan is also buried in Morrow Cemetery .. after leaving Miss Todie's house, my parents moved in with her. Did she have a home across and slightly north of Todie's home? My Uncle Angus McLeod and wife Martha also lived with Miz Nolan's for a while. Is she Todie's sister?

I must tell you that Todie set a life-long habit for me. She made Creamed chipped beef on toast which I begged for. It is still my go-to comfort food. Fortunately, Stoffers makes a very good frozen version.

By the time you were born, we had moved out of Topies house, but we may well have been visiting when you were there.

Todie was a beautiful young woman. Unfortunately, many women of her era remained unmarried. The Civil War left such a shortage of husband material.

Sallie Barton (Miss Todie)
I just happened to find the picture of Miss Todie -- I was born in her home in Morrow in 1935 My parents rented rooms from her. She really spoiled me and I truly loved her. When our family grew we moved away, but returned to visit often. Unfortunately, I became a teenager and the visits dwindled. Thank you for posting the picture. I have copied it and will treasure it.
