I'm retired, the mother of one. I enjoy cooking, reading,travel, live theater and genealogy.|
I have roots in EBR, Ascension, Livingston, St Helena, Tangiphoa, East Feliciana and Washington Parish Louisiana. Clarke and Marengo Co, Alabama. Amite and Pike Co, Mississippi. These ancestors all migrated from the 13 original colonies. I have several lines who were in America before the Mayflower.
The Bergolds arrived from Darmstadt, Germany in 1839. My current number of direct ancestors in the American Revolution is 7, and also 7 direct ancestors in the Civil War. (all in the Confederacy)
I would like to thank everyone who has left flowers for my Mother, Marie Jean McIntyre Bergold. That is very kind of you.

|Everett Baranowski||Alabama Faulkner dates|
I've been walking Oxford Memorial for a year now and have been doing in-depth research to find the location of Alabama Faulkner's grave. So far, I've been to the genealogy room the county/city library. They have grave transcriptions, but Alabama's tombstone listing is not present in that book. There is also a 30-page book there on the history of St. Peter's Cemetery, written in 2007. I've read that whole book. At the time, St. Peter's owned the cemetery. Since then, the cemetery has been entirely relinquished to the City of Oxford's Public Work Department. I've been to Oxford public works department and library and have obtained all of the available maps on the cemetery. There are three Falkner/Faulkner family plots in Old St. Peter's (now a part of Oxford Memorial). Alabama's grave is not in any of those plots. There was one primary newspaper for Oxford over the years and that was the Oxford Eagle--a weekly paper that was printed on Thursdays. The chancery court has maintained a collection of the newspaper since its inception. They collect and bind the papers into books which are open to the public. I went there this past week to look over the 1931 editions. They reported county births & deaths inconsistently once each month. Oddly enough, they were able to obtain this vital information directly from vital statistics back in the day... now-days, you have to be direct family to obtain this information. After viewing all of the papers carefully, I can tell you that they only reported certain statistics for just 7 of the 12 months for the year 1931 (sometimes just births, just deaths, or--if lucky--both). Alabama's was birth and death were not listed amongst the statistics reported. Social Security was not started up until the late 1930's, so no information could be obtained from them. So, only the state would have records of her birth and death. I also called the Rowan Oak curator (the old Faulkner home--now owned by the university) who is part of the literary department faculty at the university. He was the one that gave me Alabama's birth and death dates. So, you can be sure that the information I submitted came from a reliable source. He told me that Alabama was not created and is not buried on the grounds at Rowan Oak. While still on the phone with him, he pulled up a piece of information and read it to me. It said that William Faulkner personally walked the casket to the cemetery (St. Peter's) for burial, so we know that she has to be buried in Old St. Peter's. He told me that it was "believed" that Alabama was buried in the Oldham plot (Estelle's family) in (Old) St. Peter's Section 2. He said he'd do some research to pursue and confirm things on his end and try to get back with me concerning her burial location. The family plot runs along the edge of Jefferson Street at the front end of the cemetery when entering the first drive/entrance off of 16th Street. The plot is to the right side of the drive. Alabama has no grave marker present in the plot. I ran over there just before dark to re-check the Oldham family plot late on Saturday evening. Right now, my best hope of finding out more information on the location of Alabama's grave site lies with the Rowan Oak curator. Not even sure yet if she was given a tombstone. Just wanted to send you a note to let you know where I got my information from concerning Alabama's death dates and let you know that I am pursuing her grave site. ~Everett

I'm going to update my book on the Williams family and would love to get your input on the family.
|Janis Chevalier||Cornelius Bergold|
A photo was just added to your site for Cornelius Bergold. I am working with JoAnn Schmidt who took the photo for us. She has written a book about the Geiger family and her family oral history indicates that Cornelius is one of their descendents. I have created a tree on Ancestry.com under the name Janis Loughran and I'm in the process of uploading her data and her considerable collection of documentation. We have discovered some interesting stories about the Bergold line and we would love to share them with you. - Janis

I have add a photo and plot data for this memorial. The plot data is on your profile page under the "edits" tab. This is a new edit system if you don't know about it that is very easy to review/approve info. Ken

Thanks for the transfer. I am adding additional information now.

You posted a couple of pictures to my memorial # 49861494. This turns out to be a duplicate. The reason I didn't catch it when I posted the memorial is because the existing one is under Clanton. I have agreed to try and get the pictures posted to the 1st memorial. Could you please post the pictures to # 33421479. That would be a great help. Thanks,
Thank you Kathy!
