|Martha Smith||Captain John Stephen Potts|
I am descended from Amos and Rachel Potts, of Bradley County, TN. who were parents of John Stephen Potts. I have visited their graves and currently working on getting them a tombstone. I saw a note on one of the Potts memorial who are buried in Pottsville Cemetery, Hamilton County TX that you also have Langstons in your line. Amos and Rachel had a daughter Martha Potts (sister of John Stephen Potts) who married John Langston. He was killed during Civil War in Nashville TN. Martha died in 1903 but I cannot find any other information or her gravesite. Since her brother John Stephen Potts relocated to TX I wonder if it is possible she died there in 1903. However, she is on the 1900 Tennessee census as living in Bradley County, TN. I would appreciate information on ANY Langstons in your family line. Martha and John Langston had 3 sons. I descend from the oldest son, Samuel Albert Langston. Thank you. Martha Smith
|Gayle Morton||Re: Sallie Ruth Speake|
This is Rhalonda Gayle again. I noticed it was a picture of Sallie Ruth Speake and not Annie Speake that you shared. None the less, Sallie Ruth was my Great Aunt also!
|Gayle Morton||Re: Annie Speake|
My name is Rhalonda Gayle Bennett Morton. My Great Grandmother Myrtle Speake Lacy was Annie's sister. My Grandmother Pat "Edrie Pauline" Lacy Bennett Cooper was one of Grandma Lacy's daughters.
I recently got interested in geneology and findagrave afer losing my only child (son) Beau Justin Spring. Find A Grave is a wonderful way to keep loved ones alive in the heart's of others. You will find Beau's obituary here on this site and I invite you to share our memories.
I heard my father speak of Aunt Annie, Aunt Sallie and their brothers through the years. I was seldom around extended family and I really appreciated the picture you shared of my Great Aunt Annie. I never met her or any of the other siblings except my Grandma Lacy.
I always heard the name Speake pronounced with an S (Speaks) and I find it both ways in my geneology research. Do you know which is correct?
Stephen Crain was my 5th Great Grandfather. His granddaughter Louisa Crain was my paternal grandfathers great grand mother married to Sam McGlothin.

The info on Dick Meehan has already been posted to his memorial. Thanks for the update.
|Lee Vanette McKinney||RE: William Rogers Sr|
Thank you for the response !
|Lee Vanette McKinney||William Rogers Sr|
Hello! As I was googling information for my above named ancestor, I found your entry for him on Find-a-grave! I have spent days trying to unravel his situation with 2 wives, as I am a descendant of his son, William Jr., but couldn't figure out if "Sibby" or Mary Burwell was his mother. Do you have any documentation to verify William Jr's mother was Mary Burwell? Do you know anything about her? I see that you also have Kirkland in your ancestry - my great grandmother, Annie Lee Rodgers, married a Messer, and their daughter (Ruby Messer) married Vannie Kirkland, my grandfather, who lived in Dellwood, FL. I heard I had Kirkland relatives that moved on to Texas.

|James Henderson||David Denton Scoggin|
Elreeta, I am inquiring about David Denton Scoggin who had a daughter named Lucretia born about 1838. Do you have any further information on this daughter as I feel she may be my great grandmother born that same year but her common name is Martha Scoggins of Hamilton County, TX. I believe my Martha's father was D.D. Scoggins. Any clues about this family in your records?
