Gerald, I thought you might want to add this to her Memorial Page.
Mrs. Elizabeth Singleton died at her home at Fairfield last Wednesday night [8 Aug 1900] in
the 83rd year of her age. She was born in Bedford
County and spent all of her life in the locality
where she died. She was the widow of the late Dr.
Robert L. Singleton who for years was the leading
practitioner of medicine and subsequently one
of the county's wealthiest farmers and traders. Her father, the late Major John Scott, was one of
the heroes under Gen. Andrew Jackson in the War of
1812. She was the mother of Robert L. Singleton, county court clerk who when but a boy was a gallant Confederate soldier and lost a leg in the
bloody battle of Stone's River. There was no better mother, friend, or neighbor. -Bedford Co.
Times, Shelbyville, 17 Aug 1900

|Dr. William McDonald||Richmond Duncan|
Would you mind entering the following bio/info on the memorial page you created for Richmond Duncan? (Or feel free to transfer his page to me for maintenance.)
The date of death in the dates and places area needs to be changed to 1913. (The headstone is rather illegible.)He celebrated his birthday on Christmas Day.
I am in contact with Richmond Duncan's ggg Grandson. This is where the following info comes from.
Thanks for your help
William McDonald, PhD
Richmond Duncan, Sr. (1837?-1913) was born a slave in Tennessee. According to the family oral history, Richmond belonged to a family named "Smith." One of the Smith daughters married a man from Alabama by the name of Duncan, and Richmond, who was just a child, was given to the newly married Mr. & Mrs. Duncan as a wedding present (that's right, a slave as a wedding present). That's how Richmond acquired the last name "Duncan."
Mr. & Mrs. Duncan established their home in Lauderdale County, Alabama, outside the town of Florence, and brought their slave boy, Richmond, with them. They had children with whom Richmond grew up, and with whom he played. However, Richmond never learned to read or write. He did not know for certain when he was born (he assumed it was in 1837), and he celebrated his birthday on Christmas Day.
Richmond married Malinda Louise Armstead (1842-1929) and, together, they had 7 children: Louis, Willis, Robert, Barney, Richmond Jr., and a boy & girl who died in infancy. Only Barney (1866-1945) & Richmond Jr. (1871-1972) lived to see middle age and older.
Richmond, Sr. & Malinda Armstead Duncan were buried in Armstead Cemetery in Florence, AL, on land set aside on the Armistead family plantation for the slaves & their descendants.

|PL Overstreet||Finos Melton Cates|
Finis Milton Cates is the great-grandfather of one of my Wilkerson clients. At FindAGrave his wife's name is given as Caldonia Belle Patterson. Her daughter gave her name as Jemima Belle Patterson on a death certificate. Do you know anything about the Patterson family that might help me to reconcile this first name matter? In all the Wilkerson family information, she was known as Belle Patterson(she is the great-grandmother.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
