|September||RE: Virginia Black|
You're welcome. I did not know Virginia, the photograph was scanned from a military photo album. I had also added photos to her husband Claude's memorial.

I was glad to do it. I think obituaries are such a wonderful source of information.

|David Sawdy||Captain William Cone Cemetery|
Have you been at this cemetery? I was there today and didn't find anything like the picture you have posted. The land is owned by the Gruver family, they escorted me .9 miles south of State route 119 next to a power line right of way. There are 4 grave stones and 4 plastic pipe tees at the head of sunken holes which I take as graves. The area is a wooded area that has lots of undergrouth one stone was covered with a fallen tree that I removed to photo the headstone. This cemetery isn't far from the bank of the Ogeachee River. It is on private land. I have pictures of the cemetery and surrounding area.
|Sharlotte Donnelly||RE: Cone graves to you?|
You just email Find a Grave at firstname.lastname@example.org with the reminder that William has passed away and the names of those you would like to take responsibility for.
|Sharlotte Donnelly||Cone graves to you?|
William Bernard Cone, Jr., who created so many Cone family sites at Find a Grave, has passed away. I have had Find a Grave transfer some of his sites to me. Would you be interested in asking Find a Grave to transfer the rest of the Cones at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gsr&GSmid=46561522& to you?
|Lydia Jetson||Mary V. Norton Lee Chambers|
I am wondering if you have a list of the children of Alexander Calhoun Norton and Mary D. Harrison Norton?
I am researching Mary Monie V. born 1875 in Georgia, married first to Henry Charles Lee (1873-1935) then to a R.M. Chambers. She divorced Lee in 1915. I have her on the 1900 and 1910 census in Effingham County, and I cannot find her later. Their son, Harry Norton Lee (1895-1972) is probably middle named after Mary's father, and I found Alex and Mary D. on the same census page with them in 1910, so I am making a huge assumption that Alex is Mary Monie V. (Vivian?) father. If you do have any information about this, I would appreciate it. Thank you. Lydia Jetson email@example.com
|Sharlotte Donnelly||Notable Cone Descendents|
I am attempting to compile a list of the notable descendents of Revolutionary War hero Captain William Henry Cone and his wife Keziah Eudel Barber Cone of Bulloch County, Georgia. I would like to expand the information I have at the grave of Keziah that I have created at the Find a Grave site (http://www.findagrave.com) at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=32919001. Here's what I have:
Keziah Eudel Barber Cone
Pee Dee (Anson County)
North Carolina, USA
Georgia, USA [Edit Dates]
Keziah Eudel Barber Cone was born about 1750 in the Pee Dee Station area of North Carolina. She was the daughter of William Nathaniel Barber and Hepzibah Loomis Barber and sister of Cassandra Barber Carter. Some of her ancestors were said to have come to America aboard the Mayflower. About 1765 at the Pee Dee Station in North Carolina, Keziah married William Henry Cone, a farmer, landowner, justice of the peace, and Baptist minister, who became a Revolutionary War hero known as the "Fighting Parson" (while fighting with Francis Marion, the "Swamp Fox," of South Carolina). Keziah and William became residents of Cheraw County, South Carolina before migrating to Effingham County, Georgia and later to Bulloch County. They had nine children: Aaron Cone, Sr., Jane E. Cone, William Cone, Jr., Joseph Cone, Keziah Cone Dampier, Sarah Cone Knight, Nancy Cone Hagin, Mary Cone Lee, and Elizabeth Cone. Keziah and William resided in the Ivanhoe Voting District of Bulloch County, Georgia. Preceding her husband in death, Keziah died in 1810 in Bulloch County and was buried in the Old William Cone-Barber Family Cemetery (Captain William Cone Cemetery) adjacent to the old Barber family homestead on the east side of the Old River Road near the Stagecoach Road on the western bank of the Ogeechee River south of Georgia Highway 119 (Guyton-Stilson Road). In 1985 a bridge across the Ogeechee River linking Bulloch and Effingham Counties was named in honor of her husband. Among her many notable descendents was a son, Aaron Cone, Sr., who was a courier during the American Revolution; a son, William Cone, Jr., who served in both the Georgia and Florida legislatures; a grandson, Aaron Cone, Jr., who assisted naturalist John Abbot in exploring Bulloch County; a grandson, William Haddock Cone, who was a Confederate veteran and a Florida state senator; a grandson Peter Cone who was a Major General in the Confederacy; a grandson Daniel Newman Cone who was a law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty; great-grandsons, Paul Robert Cone and John Slater Cone, Confederate soldiers who died from wounds received at the battle at James Island, South Carolina in June 1862; a great-grandson, Fredrick Preston Cone, Governor of Florida from 1937 to 1942; a great-grandson Aaron Donaldson Cone, a Confederate veteran; a great-grandson Joseph Smith Cone, a Lt. Colonel in the Confederacy and a Georgia state senator; great-grandson James Basil Cone, a dentist; a great-great-grandson Reamer Hamilton Cone, a teacher; a great-great-great-grandson Harry McClelland, a World War II veteran; a great-great-great-great-grandson Waldo Floyd, Jr., MD, a physician; and a great-great-great-great-great-granddaughter Sharlotte Neely Donnelly, PhD, a professor and author of Snowbird Cherokees and other publications; to name but a few of Keziah Barber Cone's descendents.
What corrections, updates, additions, deletions, revisions, etc. should I make? I am grateful to William Cone who created the Find a Grave site for Captain William Henry Cone and to many others like Jerry Tuttle, Paul Tocci, James Cone, and many others who have helped me out. Jerry makes the good pointódo we know Captain Cone's middle name was "Henry"? Any mistakes above are, however, mine and not theirs.
|James Cone||Capt. William Cone's Grave|
I think I can clear up the mystery of the photo of William H. Cone... That probably would have been Capt. William's grandson - William Henry - born in Ivanhoe on 12/22/1850... buried in Old Fellowship Baptist Church in Stilson (on land donated by the Cone family, I believe... from original land grant)... His grandson - also William Henry - was my father... The DAR memorial marker (marking Capt. William's grave) is on land belonging to what is left of the original Cone land (belonging to my brother and myself... though the cemetery has been donated, I beleieve, to Old Fellowship)...
