John Wise
John Wise was my 4th great grandfather on my motherís side. Would you know if there is any Native American ancestry in the Wise family? I, too, have been searching for Native American ancestry. I found a 5th great grandmother on my fatherís side who was Cherokee. I was recently enrolled in United Cherokee Ani Yun Wiya Nation in Alabama by way of being a descendant of hers. Her name is Sarah Elizabeth Seabolt. Any information you could send on the Wise family (Native American ancestry or other information) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.

Great photos by the way.

Take a look at memorial when you get a second.

There, you added two photos. It looks like one of those belongs on another memorial. As a matter of fact, looking in that cemetery, it looks like you already have it on the other one.

So, you might could delete it from this one.

Again, great photos!

My cousin Cindy told me you needed to get in touch with me to make a correction. If you will go on the edit section of the memorial and give me the information, I will make the correction.

David Hughes
I got this e-mail regarding his memorial. Thought you might want to check out the info she sent.

Rose, I did an obit on my site ( for David Wayne Hughes today. The source for the obit was It indicated that Mr. Hughes was to be buried at Carter Cemetery in Detroit, AL., which is in Lamar County, AL. The one you have listed is in Marion County, AL. Since his parents are not listed in either of these cemeteries, I don't have a reference to go by.
I just thought you might want to check for accuracy for future reference.

RE: Eskew Virtual Cemetery
Hi Joyce,

You never know about the Eskew family. Two of my Grandpa Charlie D. Irvin's sisters were married to Eskews. I know an Askew in this area, but haven't made any connection to them yet. As it's such a small world, we may very well be related on another line! :)

Hi Joyce!

I probably have all of the information from William Norton already from many years ago. Also, I have been working on the Irvin family history for over 30 years. Always welcome any new information!

I actually descend from two of Rigdon and Mary Ann's lines: William Irvin (Ervin) and Francis Marion Irvin (Ervin).

I have family trees on if you have access: irvinfamily is my username
(Irvin-Clark-Irvin-Guffee Family Tree)

Thanks! Galeen Irvin Chain
