I am in search of my family history, and that includes there final resting places. Our history takes us from the present to the 1420's, and it covers the states of Texas,Kentucky,South Carolina,Pennsylvania,Virginia,and Scotland. One of my 3rd great grand-fathers (Henry Reed), fought in the Battle of San Jacinto and I have a quest to find where all of those Texas Heroes were laid to rest.|

I read something on one of your memorials about the Ft. Boonesborough, Kentucky cemetery. My 5th great-grandparents, William & Winifred Fletcher, is said to have been buried in that cemetery, however, there is no stone marking their graves. I have his will, supplied by a cousin, that says William is leaving his lot in Boonesborough to his wife, Winifred, but I don't know who to contact to get that verified. Do you? Also, where was the first ferry built in Kentucky? Thank you for any help you can supply.
Glad to see more of my Callaway family on here.Thanks for the work you have done...Capt. Thomas is one of my great-great grandfathers..Grandmother is Pearl E. Callaway m. Perry Ray, Ga. Hugs,Dorothy

You made a nice memorial of Mr. Balch. Would you perhaps have an obituary that you used or could reference for me.

Hello! Was Washington Anderson (1817-1894) from the Round Rock/Austin area an ancestor of your's? He was from one of the "Old 300" families of Texas. If so, please message me back. Thanks!
|G. Abbott||Lancelot Abbotts|
I am pretty sure, I saw his uniform hanging in a display at San Jacinto Museum. Since I am an Abbott, it caught my eye (years ago) and the fact that the uniform was so tiny.
I am interested in this man, as my Oliver descent is through Lancelot Oliver, (b. Ireland)and I am stuck on my Benjamin Franklin Abbott ancestor who was b. 1812 NC. The Olivers in this group are Stamp Act enforcers, that went back to England. My Ben Abbott died at age 28, married a Willis. Some of this group had titles or were gentlemen (Esq.s)so you mention of titles, may help in my searches. This group also includes: Warner/Willis, and other Washington family groups.

|DSmith||John William Smith|
The Bounty you found for John W Smith of Bexar County is him. I found mention of him being at San Jacinto in a book called Eighteen Minutes: The Battle of San Jacinto.
On page 53, the author speaks of Smith: "Another colorful veteran of Captain Patton's company was former Alamo courier John Smith. Officer David Murphee later stated in a deposition that Smith operated from the San Antonio area with other couriers between San Antonio, Goliad and Gonzales, Smith accompanied one party from Gonzales 'to relieve the Alamo' and was 'prevented from returning to Goliad and joining his company'. Smith then made his way back to Gonzales, where he joined Captain Patton's company and was elected orderly sergeant on March 20'.
On page 448, John Smith is listed as First Sergeant in the Fourth (D) Company, Second Regiment "Columbia Company", organized March 13, 1836
