I'm sorry - What I should have said was, do you have any concrete evidence what Anne's last name was. I thought it might be Muse but someone else told me they believed it was Smith. No one has any hard evidence to support that. I would love to have the name of Rachel's grandparents on her fathers side. I can not find it anywhere.
Sorry for the confusion.
Thanks Deb

Rachel McFadden Ayers
I know this has been a while after your posting but I was hoping you may have some info on Rachel. I know all of her info except the date of her marriage to Moses and her mother's (Anne)
maiden name. Her father was William McFadden.
He died in 1790 in Fairfield Co., SC. It looked like Rachel and Moses left that area sometime after Anne died in 1794. I have been to SC and could not find where their graves are, but of course where they lived last is all under water.
The big municipal power plant flooded the whole area back many years ago without moving the
graves up on higher ground. That really upsets me
that they could not be more considerate of our ancestors. If anyone needs any info or has any additional info concerning Rachel, please feel free to leave a message.
Thanks Deb

RE: John and Henrietta Fowler
Hi Karen, If I am correct (and this is not my line)Miles Wilburn Fowler had a son John Adams Fowler and wife Henrietta that came to Courtney in the Chickasaw Nation abt 1874 then moved to Duncan, Indian Territory abt 1893.
John fowler's sister Elizabeth and Daniel Lawson lived at Courtney and Rubottom. Elizabeth died 1889 at Courtney. Her husband Daniel Lawson remarried, remained at Courtney, there on 1900 census, burried Illinois Bend. Elizabeth Fowler Lawson's son Jodie was born Jan 16, 1888 Courtney, Chickasaw Nation, in 1917 he worked for John Fowler at Duncan. Elizabeth's dau Myrtle b. Aug 1886 IT.
John had a brother Miles Fowler, his son Wilburn Fowler came to Oklahoma, I don't know how early. I know he was in Duncan in 1893 and a newspaper reference says he was visiting friends at Courtney in 1893.
Hope this helps your research. Scott

RE: John and Henrietta Fowler
Well Karen, I cannot figure out why I left the msg for you other than you maintained a grave (don't know which one),of a Fowler in Pontotoc Co., MS. John and Henrietta that I enquired about came from there to the Chickasaw Nation.

I sometimes get ahead of myself. Or behind!
Thank you

Hi, Karen!

If you will read the note on the memorial and read the information on the cemetery on the first page, you will see that I have a historical record through the University of Bristol of the the remains being turned over to the Cathedral in Shanghai, and that the cemetery has been destroyed, so having a current photo of the stone is not an option. I even posted pictures of the destoyed grounds:

Chris Nelson has been very thorough in photographing both the Hong Kong Cemetery you describe and the Jewish Cemetery in the same area in Happy Valley, and he has never posted a LeBas or a Le Bas photo. I'm shaking my head, 'cause if if the direct relatives were there and saw it, and went all that way, why didn't THEY take a picture?

You are welcome. I have noticed several memorials where it has added the name in a lighter color as a sibling. I do not know how to fix it. You might email findagrave at Be sure to add a link to the memorial.
