Bio and Links

Your tombstone stands among the rest, Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out...On old gray granite stone.
It reaches out to all who care...It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist...You died...and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you...In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse...Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled...One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left...Who would have loved you so.
I wonder when you lived and loved; I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot...And come and visit you.

Sevenmile Springs Cemetery
This is otherwise known as Hadley Cemetery. It is east of Blacksher Alabama off of county road 61. I heard of it but have never been there and can not travel that far. It is not in Summerdale as stated on the site. Blacksher is at the far north end of Baldwin county, about 70 miles from Summerdale.I forgot who sent me the link to the write-up on Hadley Cemetery, but here is the info. It is private land.Maybe some of the Hadleys in the area could help find it.
The Hadley Cemetery
Located off Baldwin County, Alabama hiway 61 about 3 1/2 miles south of junction at hiway 59. At the 3 1/2 mile point enter a log road off
hiway 61, just south, across the road from Hooper Matthew's barn and small pecan orchard. Go about 150 yards south turning west. Go westerly about 400 yards. Cemetery located on right about 75 feet in woods. As you walk towards the cemetery first are two graves in an iron wrought fence. These are- John Benjamin Hadley, born Dec-04-1853 died Aug-06-1884, the son of John Hadley and Nellie Johnson. The other is the grave in the enclosure is John Benjamin and Sarah Cruit Hadley's infant son. Sarah miscarried when notified at the time of husband's death. North of this enclosure are 7 graves in line facing east. Each marked with a head and foot stone at least 1 foot in length and width. It is evident all the stones came from a same location. The first grave to the (south) has 2 side stones on the south side and at the other grave seventh (north) are 2 more stones to the north side. The fifth grave or center grave- Benjamin (Ben) Hadley's grave born
1760 died 1830. He is the son of Thomas Hadley and Mary Thompson of NC. Ben is the first Hadley to come to this area. At his feet is another large stone. This is where Ben's servant and slave is buried. Next and number four to the south of Ben's grave is a child's grave.Next number three to that grave is Betty Kenderson Hadley, Ben's spouse born 1778 died Mar-10-1825. That leaves 2 adult graves south of Betty and 2 graves north of Ben's. Not known which one is which but one is-Julia Johnson born 1814 died 1844, the spouse of Jesse Hadley. Believed to be the daughter of Isaac Johnson and Susan Bates.
The other is-Elizabeth Stewart born Jan-30-1880 died Feb-16-1873, the spouse of James Marion Hadley. The daughter of John P. Stewart and Mary Unknown. The other 2 graves remain unknown but may give some hint as to where Jane Hadley Boon born 1808, daughter of Ben and Mary, may be buried. Another aspect to be considered is it was said Julia Johnson and spouse Jesse Hadley had several children to die when young. The only other
remaining solution- which is far fetched but may have been Frederick Hadley that is listed on a Georgia passport that came with Benjamin to the area in the early 1800's Any information about Frederick has never been found since then.
