Anne Caroline Stover Smith
Recent Y-DNA analysis have indicated I am directly related to the first husband of Anne Caroline Stover Smith. Her first husband was Neil McKay Smith and I believe he was killed on March 19, 1849 perhaps along with his brother Alexander McKay Smith in Wilcox County, AL. Would you have any information or suggestions to finding more about these two men and/or the event surrounding their deaths? I noted the "Genealogy of the McWillie and Cunningham Families" posted to the memorial for Anne Smith. How would I find out if this book might contain information about Neil Smith? Does any of your research include the current descendants of the sons of Anne and Neil Smith? I believe I have found two more sons of Anne and Neil not listed on Anne's memorial page: Charles McKay Smith born in 1842 and Thomas M. Smith born in 1845, both in Wilcox County, AL. My email is Thanks Bill Hately

Jihn H. Hammond #55561121
Hello Crissa,

Sarah "Sallie" Granberry Hammond is the sister of my great great-grandfather, Simeon Travis Granberry. She was the wife of Leroy Washington Hammond. You have your John as being born in Georgia in 1853. Would you tell me the source of that info. as I cannot find a census, or any record, where their John is listed as being born in Georgia. I'm not saying that this isn't there John, I'm just saying that conflicts with all the info that I can find. And, do you have any record of his marriage to the Martha with whom he is linked?

Just trying to get it all straight in mind and in history, any help you can give me will be appreciated.

Sarah Ann May Forman
I am researching the wives of Ephraim J Forman and I'm trying to make sure this is the right wife. The Find A Grave memorial for her says that she was married to a "Mr. Roberts" but I can't find a record of that in the Amite county marriage records. Would you happen to have any more information, such as where and when they were married, or Mr. Roberts' first name? Thank you! (Sarah Forman #65194047)

Rebecca Jane Byrd

I have been looking for Rebecca for some time with no luck. How did you find her to add her to the list of children. Her mother was Mariah Monk Byrd. I also don't have her birthday.
Any information could help me with my research.

Thanks Vickie

Rebecca Jane Byrd

How did you find that Rebecca Jane Byrd was the daughter of Hezekiah "Chi" Byrd from Greene County, Mississippi? Hezekiah's wife was Marian Monk.

I have only found one girl child for them and it was not Rebecca Jane Byrd. Her name was Elizabeth, born 1833 in Greene County, Mississippi.

Anything you can send me would be helpful.

John Levi & Roxie Dement
Hi Crissa,

Could you please put a note in John Levi Dement (Memorial# 26749160) and Roxie Walley Dement's (Memorial# 26749135) records that their birthdates are wrong. It looks like someone added their tombstones at a later date with incorrect information.

Roxie Dement is on every census from 1900-1940 with birth years ranging from 1873-1879, and on the 1900 census her birthdate is listed as May 1877. She's very consistently in the 1870's definitely not 1888. Dewey, her first child, was born in 1899, it's far more likely that she was 22 (1899-1877) than 11 (1899-1888)!

John Levi Dement is on every census from 1860-1940 and his birth year is 1858 on six and 1859 on two with Mar 1858 on the 1900 census.

Thank you for your help!
