Hi, will send you an email. Trying to wrap my head around the genealogy of the Webster family, I am a descendant of Mary Ellen Welch, m. Samuel Ivy Webster Jr. Thank you for all your hard work on this family here, I can see it.

|Sharman Hopkins||RE: Esau PIKE|
Hi John, I was sending a reply and lost it. Not sure if you got it so I'm sending it again. I have Esaw Pike buried in DeKalb County Alabama at Trinity Methodist Church. His headstone gives dob 6/9/1827 dod 8/1/1910. I have where he left his family in Columbus, Ga. and went to Randolph County Alabama. He enlisted in Civil War on July 12, 1861 in Columbus, Ga and was in Co B 37th Ga Regt. You can find this on "Alabama, Texas and Virginia Confederate Pensions 1884 - 1958" The application date is May 15, 1899 in Cherokee County Al. Pension file #2046 gives his age 73, having been born in 1826. I know of only 2 Esaw Pike's in Columbus, The elder Esaw (Esau), who died 1851, and the son Esaw who married Rebecca Thompson. I was in contact with Betty Clifton, who is direct descendant of Esaw Pike (Rebecca's Esaw)thru his 2nd family. She verified that Esaw left his family in Columbus and came to Alabama. He married Nancy S A Lambert in Calhoun County Al on November 21, 1875. They can be found 1900 Spring Hill, Cherokee Co., Al. According to Betty Clifton, one of Rebecca's sons took her to see Esaw in Alabama. Esaw had a head wound from the war and had forgot he had a family in Columbus when he met and married Nancy. He decided to stay with Nancy and so Rebecca came back to Columbus. Could be the head wound made him forget his birthday also, who knows. I did find where my Zion Pike enlisted in war. It was found on fold3.com and he is under the name "Leon" Pike.
That's such a kind offer - I imagine most of the cemeteries in that area have already been canvassed. But if you were to come across more information that would be great!

Hi John. Well I heard from my distant relatives and they have pretty good info. from family stories and documentation that I feel pretty comfortable linking my GGG to her parents, Ben and Sarah Matthews. Do you still have the original size JPG photos of their headstones and the cemetery? Would you mind sending them to me or re-uploading your photos to Find A Grave in that size? I make videos with pictures and info on them for my family to get them - especially the younger crowd - interested in learning their family history. I haven't been on Find A Grave that long, but just a couple of years ago the maximum size was 500 KB. Now it is up to 8 MB! Getting hotter here in Dallas. Tricia

Thank you so much for posting the family, and a beautiful job with the biographies! I have linked daughter Gracie Jones to them. Barbara Tynes Claiborne
|Patricia||RE: MATTHEWS marriage|
Hi John, Thank you for sending such a detailed answer. I have as yet seen the research from distant members, but you have given me some sources to check if they haven't. Dallas is still as hot as ever, and the traffic is terrible due to the construction. But I will take these 100+ days in the summer rather than the bitter cold of the winter up north. Again, thanks for the info. Tricia

|Virginia Buras||RE: Fellowship Baptist Church Cemetery|
Thank you for your reply. A request for combining the two Find A Grave Fellowship cemeteries (white)- Fellowship Cemetery and Fellowship Baptist Cemetery in Upson County, Georgia has been made since they are the same cemetery. It would be nice to have a note on the Find A Grave Fellowship Baptist Church cemetery noting it is black. Maybe in time the error will be corrected as it was for the Friendship cemetery located a short distance from the Fellowship cemeteries.

Thank you for the correction.
