J.J. Martindale
I found a typo in the caption and added a little something to make it:
John Jackson Martindale and wife Julia Ann Arthur Martindale with daughters (left to right) Daisey Martindale Fordyce, Lillie A Martindale Watkins,
Sarah Jane Martindale Goodwin, Eliza A Martindale Ham
Back row Claude Martindale, Hugh Martindale, William Martindale and Thomas Frank Martindale.

One of the sons was named Matindale.

Julia married John Jackson Martindale, her sister, Marilda Arthur married his brother Thomas Martindale and her brother, John Hood Arthur married their sister, Nancy Ann Martindale. John Hood Arthur is mt Great Great Grandfather.

John Jackson Martindale Family
The family photo you put on J.J. Martindale's memorial, 17180079, was one I found on Since I have a free subscription, not a paid one, I was not allowed to see the entire caption. I found someone on who forwarded me the caption. Seems I made an error. This is the corrected caption;

Seated John Jackson Martindale, Julia Arthur Martindale. Girls left to right; Daisy Martindale (Fordyce), Lillie Martindale (Watkins), Sarah Jane Martindale (Goodwin), Eliza Martindale (Ham). Boys left to right: Claude Martindale, Hugh Martindale, William Martindale, Thomas Frank Martindale.

The men in the photo were brothers not husbands.

Womack Family

I have joined 23andme and Womack cousins have been showing up in my list of cousins. I didn't know how they fit into the puzzle, but I have seen the name Browne also. My ancestors were Durretts, Hoggs, and Hargroves in the Alabama area.

Do you have any connection to any of these families?

Please contact me.

Thank you.

RE: Zimri Hunt
Williamson is my 5th great grandfather!! Rebecca Brown HUNT, Rebecca Jane Hunt HANKINS, Edgar Hankins, Nora Ellen Hankins SHUMATE, Herman Shumate, Dorothy Jean Shumate Smith. I haven't done any research yet on the Browns, so I'm excited to see what you may have on them. I didn't even know that his name was Williamson. I had it as William. He was also married to a Rebecca, but I do not know her maiden name. Do you have a family tree on I look forward to writing with you more.

Rebecca Hunt and William Hankins
We may have corresponded previously. My memory is not always good. Do you have a relationship to Zimri Hunt? I saw where you posted information on his memorial. I have tried to get the "owner" to make changes before, or connections, or simply transfer memorials to others so that we can make connections, but to no avail. Thank you for putting the information on there.

Hi Carolyn.
I was so happy to find your memorial of Williamson Brown, who was an ancestor of mine. I was reading your biography of him and it dawned on me that given his year of birth, 1770, he would have been only 5 years old when the Revolutionary War started and only 13 years old when the War ended. Could it be his year of birth is incorrect? Do you recall where you got the information for the bio? I did a quick search of names of Revolutionary War soldiers and couldn't find any Williamson Browns who would have been born in 1760-1770.
Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

John Jackson Martindale
You placed a photo on John's memorial #17180079. I found the same photo on a search of with captions. Because I have limited free access to, I didn't see all the names. What I did get was:

Seated are John Jackson Martindale and Julia Ann Arthur Martindale Three of the girls l-r are John & Julia's daughters Daisey Martindale Fordyce, Lillie A. Martindale Watkins and in the dark dress, Eliza A Martindale Ham. Don't know the woman behind Julia but it might be their daughter Sarah. The men may be their husbands.

Thought this might interest you. In case you don't remember me, look at what I did for Find A Grave Memorial# 16827763.

the two cemeteries
could you let me know where you found the info about these two cemeteries being merged? I would like to check with them and get them to correct their info before more people are confused. What ever info they have are incorrect. If you need proof from me I can send you the file picture for both cemeteries so you can see for yourself that they are incorrect. Thanks.
