I was born in Florida and lived here all of my life. My family surnames are Sheffield, Revell, Rutledge, Keen/Keene, Story, Miley, Goff, Saunders, Chancey, Raulerson, Winslow, Bryant, Lyons, Alderman, West, and Holloway, to name a few. I hope my family will one day be able to use this information when there looking for their ancestors so this is a gift to them in the future, from me now. Happy hunting!!!
RE: Rev. L. Orval Winslow and wife Rebekah M. Winslow I'll be glad to help you find anyone in this area. This is why I do it...My new found hobby has become an obsession! Death records are slim for these older ones, so I try to get them on. I do wish more families would stop by and pick up their ancestors from me ;-)
Eliza Goff I am related to the Goff family through my Grandmother Ealon Newman Hall. Eliza Woodward Goff was her Grandmother. I was always told that someone on her side of the family was a full blooded indian. While I have spent the last 10 years researching my mother's side of the family, I have gone as far as I can. Now I'm turning to my father's side. Tons of research has been done on the Goff side, I am trying to find out more information on Eliza Woodward Goff who was married to James Steely Goff. Do you know of anyone who has information on her? Thanks so much.
Bass Thank you for the obit for Mr. Bass. I appreciate that you made the effort to send it. If you run across one for Mrs Bass, I'd love to add it to her memorial. I noticed the name Raulerson in your bio. Are you related to the late Mrs. Bass?
I was so excited this morning to find a hint on Ancestry.com about your cemetery!
Miles James Riley was my great grandfather, and my daughter and I came to the Mathews cemetery a few years ago and tried unsuccessfully to find his grave site. Is there a map of the property that might indicate where he lies?
I believe he may have been buried there because his half-sister was married to a man named Matthews - is there any way to verify whether that might be true? Do you have any idea if Henderson-Blount Company might still have records of his funeral?
