|Sharon Haywood||Mrs. Pearly Haywood Jackson|
Words cannot express the way I feel whenever I make a request for a change on a memorial and it is completed without hesitation. Pearly it's my great great grandfather's grandchild. my sister and I do a lot of family research and when we find relatives that were born back in the 1800 we know at this time they are we know and if there is a memorial on findagrave for them I tried to him correct some of the mistakes and also it's just like me touching them when I see the information and their name it is a wonderful feeling. so I thank you so much for being a dedicated findagrave trooper God bless you and your family in Jesus name with Thanksgiving Amen !!

Thank you so much. Some of the older community cemeteries can be elusive. I appreciate your efforts.
|erinrenfroe||Big Bayou Cemetery|
I live in the Pensacola area and have just started volunteering to submit cemetery photographs. I noticed you were the contributor on an interment in Big Bayou Cemetery in Escambia County, FL and I wondered if you had any information on the location of the cemetery. Thank you very much.

|Mary Carpenter||RE: Thank you!|
I did find some first names of slaves in a will of Seth Botts that I found on "Ancestry.Com". It was written in Stafford County Virginia but it was written in 1763. John Botts (named in his will)was one of his sons that went to Kentucky. A daughter of John Botts (Lucy Botts) married Mills Wilks so it is possible they might be descendents of these slaves that you are looking for. The names of slaves mentioned in his will are Tom, Edward, Bob, Nell, Katherine, George, Sarah, Grace, Frank, (female), and Dinah. I guess they would all carry a last name of Botts but some of their children or grandchildren might have been willed to Lucy. Sure glad they abolished slavery. Can't imagine willing other people to your children. ~Mary~
|John S. Sims||RE: Infromation on the Wilks family|
I am not related to the Wilks family and do not have any additional information to share with you. Sorry. I wish you good success in your research endeavors. If you have any data interests in the Chattanooga Natl. Cemetery, please let me know and I'll try to help.
|Mary Carpenter||RE: Infromation on the Wilks family|
I would like to help you, but I probably don't know much more about the Wilkes family than you do. Mills was my husband's ggggrandfather through the daughter of Mills, Mary Elizabeth (Wilkes) Carpenter. I have information that Mills was born in PA in 1786. The family must have come to Kentucky some time between his birth and 1810. According to the 1810 census in Bracken County & the 1820 census in Boone County, Mills had no slaves. In the 1830 census in Boone County he had 4 slaves and in the 1840 census in Boone County he shows 3. All I have is a note in my research binder taken from the internet about the cemeteries in Boone county that states; census records, wills and deeds disclose the names of at least six slaves among the Johnson, Wilson and Wilkes family. I don't live in Kentucky so I am unable to research these records. If I run across anything more I will let you know ~Mary~
