Jacob and Nancy Walker Coffman
I see you posted pictures of there headstones. I really can not see what it says on Nancy's and nothing shows up on Jacob's.
Wondering if you might be able to get better pictures that will show names and dates.
Here are the memorial numbers
Jacob #106713233
Nancy #106713754

RE: Bankson Bible
My mom knew Martha Lyle and corresponded with her a couple of times. I've swapped a couple of e-mails with her myself.

It probably was Frank; we went to his house across from the graveyard (on the water) and talked for a good long time.

RE: Bankson Bible
I stumbled across the info on John S. Bsnkson when I was looking for something else, so I'm glad to share.

My line is Samuel Oliver, Jesse McMurtry, Elizabeth Ida (m. Walter Phariss), Mary Ida Phariss (m. H. C. Wiggins), Mary Frances Wiggins (my mother).

I haven't been up to the cemetery since before Mom died, and that's been over ten years. We ran into one of the Banksons (May have been Frank Blaine) who'd been caring for it. He warned us about going up there except in the winter for fear of rattlesnakes, so be careful.

RE: Bankson Bible
I've been up to the cemetery with my mom (my g-g-grandfather was Jesse McMurtry Bankson). It's one of those places you can't get to unless you've been there before. I'll keep trying to track down the Bible and if it ever surfaces, I'll let you know.

Dr. John S. Bankson
From the Transactions of the Medical Association (1879), pp. 13-14)"And, while I was permitted to congratulate you upon the fact that during the widespread havoc of the late epidemic of yellow fever, but few of the cities and villages of Alabama were invaded, yet our Association has not wholly escaped, and we are called upon to devote a memorial page to the dead. When the stricken city of Memphis appealed, by her desolations, to the benevolent for help, Dr. J. S. Bankson, of Stevenson, a Counsellor of this Association, and one of its Vice Presidents in 1876, though unprotected by a previous attack, with heroic self-sacrifice, went as a Good Samaritan to the help of the needy, and fell a victim to the destroyer. Let us honor his heroism and devotion to his chosen profession, while we cherish his memory in our hearts."

In "The Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1878 in Memphis, TN" p. 221, he is listed among the dead as a resident of "Court Street Infirmary." Died 18 Sept. 1878.
