Bio and Links
I live in middle Ga. and enjoy spending time searching for those out of the way gravesites and researching in general. At times I will post information as well as pictures. There are some gravesite locations that I had to "scratch and claw" to find and the clean up was back breaking. And I'm sure like many other folks I've spent many hours walking,searching and taking pics.

RE: 14th Georgia Infantry Regiment roster
Hello, M.T.
Hope all are well.
My cousin Robert George Williams in Fredericksburg, MD had
a researcher double check the Confederate Veteran data on Reuben Williams who had a leg amputated at Spotsylvania.
Interestingly, he found that Reuben was living in Bibb County, Georgia (Macon), in 1892, and moved back to Monroe County, Georgia (Forsyth) in 1896 and refiled for a Pension. No further information has been found on his death, or burial. I personally have done extensive research on nearly every plausible cemetery in Macon and Forsyth, including the Confederate Cemeteries to no avail. His death information eludes us. I can only assume he expired at some point after 1896 in Monroe County, GA. It is interesting that the DAR Cabiness Chapter awarded him the Southern Cross of Honor in 1910. Hopefully, this info will provide some help in locating his date of death and gravesite.
Thanks kindly for all of your help.
Cordial regards,
Lane Williams, Evans, GA

RE: 14th Georgia Infantry Regiment roster
Good morning, Mike.
Hope all is well in 'Middle Georgia.' My spouse and I lived in Macon for many years before we moved to Evans, GA. I attended school, and some college in Macon, and some of our
family is still there. Just thought I would let you know my history, and the fact that I did research on the Williams family at the Washington Library on Microfilm. Fortunately, I had the luxury of meeting a one Henry Williams of Macon, who knew where my Great Grandfather, A.J. Williams, was buried at Parker's Cemetery, and my Great-Great Grandfather, Reuben R. (Robert ?) Williams, was buried with a number of our klan at Midway Baptist Church in Lizella, GA. Per your query concerning your query on the Reuben Williams born in Monroe County (ca. 1840 - 1841) to Jethro Williams, I have never seen a middle initial or name for this particular person. I did read in a UDC publication published in the early 1900's at the Washington Library where Reuben was awarded the Cross Of Honor (apparently as were all Confederate Veterans) when he was a member of the Quitman Guards Camp #1122. Unfortunately, I did not record the specific publication date.
Hopefully my response here is not too wordy; albeit I hope that any data may be helpful with your expertise.
Have a good week, Mike!
Kindest regards,
Lane Williams

RE: 14th Georgia Infantry Regiment roster
Hello, Mike.
Thank you for the courtesy of your reply. I do know he was married, and his wife died February 9, 1900, and is buried in
a family cemetery (unnamed) somewhere on Maynard's Mill Road, per the Monroe County Advertiser about that time.
Also, I have seen her on a list ... which I cannot put my hands on... indicating that same info. I think it is a list of Monroe County residents deaths.
Mike - I do remember at some point a number of years ago
that I checked a Monroe County Census sometime after the Civil War, and Reuben was listed as having, I think, only 2 children - one was Margaret, and a son whose name I don't remember.
The census may have plausibly been about 1870 or 1880.
Again, not sure, and this information was recorded back in the1980s when I first got into the Williams genealogy.
I realize this info is sparse, however, hopefully with Mary Williams' death on February 9, 1900, it may provide some clue as
to the whereabouts of her spouse Reuben.
Again, thanks, so much, Mike, and we have been working on this lineage for about 35 years now. Finally got back to NC; albeit not able to identify the specific county our clan emigrated from in one of the land lotteries to Warren County, GA. between 1810 and 1820.
Thanks, Mike.

14th Georgia Infantry Regiment roster
Hello, M.T.
Hope all is well. Thank you for your efforts and courtesies of the photos of our Confederate relatives; i.e. Adoniram Judson Williams, 14th. Georgia Infantry Regiment, Company A, buried at Parker's Cemetery, Lizella, GA. Interestingly, I have finally located all of the burial places but one for the two Williams brothers, A.J. Williams, and Thomas Williams (death at Chancellorsville,), and their three cousins who all joined as the Monroe County Volunteers on July 9, 1861. One mystery still eludes me, and I would appreciate any data on a one Reuben Williams who was one of the cousins who joined 9 July, 1861, and was born in 1840 in Monroe County. He was in Hospital #9 in Richmond, VA with leg amputation at Spotsylvania, and listed on his muster card as home at end of war. He was living with a sister, Margaret, in Macon, GA as listed on the 1910 census. His final pension report states 'moved to Monroe County in 1919. I have researched cemeteries throughout Macon and Forsyth, albeit unable to find his exact death date or place of internment. Again, thanks for the work that you do, and suggestions welcome on Reuben.
May God Speed.

RE: William J Harrison
MT, you've place the info exactly as I think it should be on William's memorial. It's good to show more info about him. Thank YOU!

Alexander Stephens will?
I see that you maintain the memorial for Alexander Stephens (Find A Grave #96153572). Looked a the book you mentioned that has a line about the will. Have you seen the will? Or do you know where the original might be kept (part of Alexander Hamilton Stephen's papers)? Alexander is my 6th g-grandfather.

Alexander Stephens
Ok, will dated Nov 1813 suggests that, being alive when it was written, he died in Mar 1814. I missed the Nov part when I read it the first time. I agree with your conclusion now. Thanks- John
