Lafayette Bond
I don't see the connection between Your #105218645 Benjamin Pate and # 22424352 Lafayette Bond. I know where the cemetery is as I was there taking pictures. Its right on the northern border of Harrison Co. and Southern border of Stone Co. just west of Highway 49 about 5 miles. Request denied.

This is one of Solomon's many kids, but my bad, her mom was not clementine but Nora Chapman. Her next pregnancy with Billy led to her death in 1947. SOL married 3x.

You are welcome for the help on Missouri Lyle's cemetery location. And, yes, I am related through the Lyle side. My maternal great-grandmother was a Lyle.

I have not gotten the language down yet, so bear with my linage: Me (1962 - living) to Thomas Carroll Aderhold (1930- living) to Jones Harber Aderhold (1902 - 1952) to Francis Himer Aderhold (1863-1938) to John Burton Aderhold (1828 - 1906) to Lewis Aderhold (1800 - 1875)to John Conrad Aderhold(1765 - 1853) to Frederick Willhelm Aderhold (1748- 1807).

In your book, my line did not have a lot to I research, I wonder what the story was with John Conrad. BTW, thank for for tackling that arduous task. I have been to Germany several times, if I go again, I will see it in a totally different light. I'm face book friends with a German Aderhold

I have gotten a lot of certified docs from both Franklin and Jackson counties -death certificates, marriage certificates,wills... I have everything certified.

I have found the Digital Library of Georgia really helpful, All the old newspapers run the administer/executor notices - that has helped me confirm connections

There is a book "Headstones Lie" that is so true because I will look at a death certificate and the year on it and on the headstone will be completely different. I hope that we can work together and help each other.

RE: Memorial #104403438
Thanks, John. I work on the various Sizemore families here and there as time permits. Have you tried to figure out the discrepancies in the birth dates for Lewi and Cheley? On the memorials their birth dates are only 5 months apart in 1905.

In 1910 Lewis is 6 and Chelsey is 4. in 1920 Lewis is 15 and Chelsey is 13. in 1930 Chelsey is 21 and I didn't find Lewis. In 1940 Lewis is 35 & in the Columbus city stockade. I didn't find Chelsey in 1940.

Best regards,

I agree with you that there is a conflict. I descend from john Conrad Aderhold . My father & brother may have responded to the questionnaire you sent out, but did not give you much information. When my cousins & I found out that they blew off participating - we all got angry with them.

I am john Conrad Aderhold, to

I went to Jackson county courthouse & got some wills, death certificates, etc. I will be glad to share with you what I have - to supplement your extensive history

Jordan Pate
I found your memorial for Jordan P.Pate and wondered if you had the names of his other 3 children. You mentioned he had 4, and one was James M. Pate. I believe they had a daughter named Ella and this particular Ella may be my ggg grandmother...I have been looking for her family for a long time. Any information you have would be great! Please email me at

Sarah Caraway Carson
I saw your entry for Sarah Carson and was just curious about the name Caraway. She is my 3rd great grandmother and I've only ever heard her name as Sarah Reed Stanford or Sarah Stanford. I'm always interested in learning new things about my ancestors.
Thanks so much!

I added the picture to the record that you created. It would be nice if the other record were deleted, since yours was added before the other one and has a lot more info in it. I wish Find A Grave had a system for combining info into the oldest record and deleting the newer duplicates.

Thanks for the suggestion.
