|DET||Diamond Hill Cemetery, Nelson Co., VA.|
Smith, you posted some pictures of Diamond Hill Cemetery, at Wintergreen Mountain, do you know when they were taken? It looks like a lot of the stones are upright but when I was there most were not. Also could you email me the higher resolution pictures for my file? That cemetery is one of the oldest Truslow family cemeteries that I have found todate.

|Chuck Padgett||Reuben Beverly Padgett|
Hi there.....There may be a problem with some of the information regarding Reuben Beverly's wife, Minerva Jane Rankin. She was indeed married to this Reuben Beverly Padgett but I don't think she ever went near Illinois.
The Minerva Padgett found in Illinois is probably Minerva Johnson, married to Lewis Turner Padgett in Greene County, Illinois on 17 September, 1863. They can be found on a couple of census records in Jersey and Pike counties in 1870 & 1880.
I think the information about Reuben Beverly being a Civil War Veteran is probably correct but I can't be sure. There was another Reuben B Padgett born in nearby Bedford County, Virginia in 1832.
I can't tell to which one the Civil War records belong.
|Patrice (Fulton) Stark||Thomas Meredith's ancestors|
Thank you for removing this erroneous statement about Mary (Fulton) Meredith, mother of Thomas Meredith:
"Mary was born in Virginia on the date of 3/20/1779. It is assumed that her mother was a certain Rosannah "Littlejohn" Fulton and her father, a Revolutionary war veteran Thomas Fulton, of Augusta county Virginia." [Ref: SMITH, Salem Baptist cemetery, bio of Thomas Meredith (1804-1889), accessed 15 Nov 2011.]
The Mary Fulton described (above) had no connection to anyone in Wayne county, Tennesse.
The biography of Thomas Meredith (1804-1889), submitted by his son, Lovick Raspbury Meredith, appears in Goodspeed's "History of Tennessee," Wayne county. (Nashville, TN: Goodspeed Brothers, 1886-1887)
|Patrice (Fulton) Stark||Mary Fulton, mother of Thomas Meredith|
Thank you for sharing the family information for Thomas Meredith (1804-1889) of Wayne Co, TN. During his lifetime, Thomas wrote that he was the son of Frederick and Mary (Fulton) Meredith and I have found nothing to contradict this statement.
However, someone has supplied you with information about an unrelated Mary Fulton of Knox Co, TN, the only daughter of Rosanna (Littlejohn) Fulton. This Mary is not the wife of Frederick Meredith. On the contrary, she married Paul Harralson in Knox Co, TN, on 18 Dec 1797 and moved to Illinois along with her mother, Rosanna.
To correct your Thomas Meredith summary, simply remove the sentence that begins, "Mary was born in Virginia" and ends with "Augusta County, Virginia."
Thank you for volunteering your time on this wonderful project.
|Alice Holtin||RE: Jesse Davis|
Yes, indeed. Jesse & Elizabeth had a daughter named Frances. The 1850 Census says she is 13 yrs. old. The date on the census sheet is 4 Nov. 1860. If her birthday was in June, she would already have had her birthday for that year, and that would make her born in 1837. I realize that sometimes census ages are off.
Jesse was married twice.
His first wife was Elizabeth. Their children were Bayesden, Jane, Susan, Frances, Eliza, and William Henry.
His second wife was Frances M. (we don't know her maiden name). Their children were Samuel S., James B., Jesse M.L., and a daughter, Narses (we think Narcissus).
Elizabeth's last child was born 1848; and Frances M.'s first child was born 1855. So, within that time frame Elizabeth died, and Jesse married Frances.
You have a specific birth date for Frances, and a maiden name for Elizabeth . . . I am very interested! Would you tell me your source so I can document mine also?
Do you know if Frances & Samuel stayed in Tennessee, or if they moved back to Alabama? I did find Samuel's parents, James L. & Debora Smith, just a few houses down from the Jesse Davis household. Jesse's daughter, Susan Garrett, is two houses down, and the James Smith family is next door to the Garretts, only 3 houses down from Jesse.
So good to hear from you, Cousin! Hope to hear from you again soon.

You left a memorial for Jesse Davis, buried at Mt. Pleasant cemetery in Wayne Co., Tennessee. Are you a relative?
