|WILLIAM K. Bowen||Mary Alice Anderson Williams, FAG# 57662955|
Since Mary Alice is First Cousin of mine Once Removed, it would be an honor to me and my family to have management responsibility for her Find A Grave memorial. I have update forthcoming on her and all 10 of her siblings and will continue to make updates as information is uncovered and validated.
I just found a transcription that you did of the Ray Cemetery on the Hancock Co., GA GenWeb site in 2001. There you say that it is unknown who is buried under the "small low crypt or mausoleum of granite slabs, large enough for 4-5 graves, but with no markings on it". Is that the same crypt shown on the pages for Joseph Grant, Charlotte Ross Grant, Levi Spight, and Mary Grant Spight?
I am trying to prove that Joseph and Charlotte are my 5th g-grandparents. It would be very exciting for me to hear where that burial information was found. Any help would be appreciated. Virginia

Thank you so much for the correction on Will Ray's accident and death. My accound came from old family stories and I was never told how long he survived after the accident, I just wrongly assumed he died shortly after. His wife, Clarissa Roberts, was the sister of my great-great-grandmother, Anne Elizabeth Roberts Veal Rawls.
|Ginger Malphrus||McGee Lee|
I wonder if the McGees you are talking about were in my family tree. My uncle was named Herbert McGee Lee. He was the son of the Rev. Robert E. Lee from Effingham County. His mother was Etta Ola Dixon from Screven County. I believe I saw at one time a McGee somewhere in the tree. It might have been someone's middle name.

Dear Mr. William,
Thank you, Sir. I corrected the two memorials which I had "mixed." General, Edwin and Nettie LEE were essentially adult children who had no families of their own. General James LEE was their father's first cousin. Of course, this Bulloch-Screven clan had yet two more General LEEs (General Sr. and his son General George Washington).
A SHEPPARD cousin and I entered the McGee Family Cemetery memorials, but I've not yet visited that cemetery to photographically survey the stones. The end papers of the History of Screven County is comprised of a 1911 map which shows that B. S. McGEE and R. W. WALKER lived on a small road which crossed Little Ogeechee Creek at Nelsons Bridge near "Eureka" (say, Fish Rd. & Hilltop Ln. today), just south of Sheppards (Switch); I added a portion of the 1911 map (found at the library) to the FindAGrave memorial for Henry Han McGEE, Sr. in case that helps you (I couldn't locate you on facebook - I hardly ever use e-mail). Another McGEE is nearby, and the cemetery is likely nearby as well. I'll ask a couple of friends who know the location of several remote cemeteries in the county if they can help us (one of them lives there).
May God Bless You and Your Family,

Thanks! I've deleted my "Elizabeth". That's a wonderful picture. I just came in from taking some cemetery pictures and it's hard to imagine ever needing a coat like that again.
