Wiley Sizemore
Hi John,

Thanks for the note on Wiley - I created this memorial for him as it's a cenotaph. I didn't know for certain that #77494820 was him, but if you're sure, I'll connect it.

Mallory Grave request
Hi John,

I swung by Crest Lawn Cemetery this afternoon for my very first grave-hunting excursion. I was able to find the Mallory plot you requested. There were 8 stones in front of one large Mallory headstone. I have photos of each--I've uploaded what I can to the memorials you've created. I have more that I can email you and you can find the appropriate homes for them. Shoot me an email and I'll get you the rest!

Mutual ancestors

Kathleen Aderhold Sitting at state United Daughters of the Confederacy meeting in savannah & thought about you. I've been asked to go to the national meeting in va. I think that would be fascinating, esp if I can take the entire week & make use of the library. I want to take advantage of the opportunity to use the library for research. The meeting is Nov 6-10. In Richmond, Va. If you have any ideas, research, documentation, etc, for any mutual ancesters let me know. I hope to be able to confirm some "facts" & find clues for some of my dead ends. Please use the email -text 912-398-3121. Thanks for your help. Kathleen Aderhold. Savannah,GA

Webster Family
Hi, will send you an email. Trying to wrap my head around the genealogy of the Webster family, I am a descendant of Mary Ellen Welch, m. Samuel Ivy Webster Jr. Thank you for all your hard work on this family here, I can see it.

Hi John, I was sending a reply and lost it. Not sure if you got it so I'm sending it again. I have Esaw Pike buried in DeKalb County Alabama at Trinity Methodist Church. His headstone gives dob 6/9/1827 dod 8/1/1910. I have where he left his family in Columbus, Ga. and went to Randolph County Alabama. He enlisted in Civil War on July 12, 1861 in Columbus, Ga and was in Co B 37th Ga Regt. You can find this on "Alabama, Texas and Virginia Confederate Pensions 1884 - 1958" The application date is May 15, 1899 in Cherokee County Al. Pension file #2046 gives his age 73, having been born in 1826. I know of only 2 Esaw Pike's in Columbus, The elder Esaw (Esau), who died 1851, and the son Esaw who married Rebecca Thompson. I was in contact with Betty Clifton, who is direct descendant of Esaw Pike (Rebecca's Esaw)thru his 2nd family. She verified that Esaw left his family in Columbus and came to Alabama. He married Nancy S A Lambert in Calhoun County Al on November 21, 1875. They can be found 1900 Spring Hill, Cherokee Co., Al. According to Betty Clifton, one of Rebecca's sons took her to see Esaw in Alabama. Esaw had a head wound from the war and had forgot he had a family in Columbus when he met and married Nancy. He decided to stay with Nancy and so Rebecca came back to Columbus. Could be the head wound made him forget his birthday also, who knows. I did find where my Zion Pike enlisted in war. It was found on and he is under the name "Leon" Pike.

Christian Pike
That's such a kind offer - I imagine most of the cemeteries in that area have already been canvassed. But if you were to come across more information that would be great!

RE: MATTHEWS marriage
Hi John. Well I heard from my distant relatives and they have pretty good info. from family stories and documentation that I feel pretty comfortable linking my GGG to her parents, Ben and Sarah Matthews. Do you still have the original size JPG photos of their headstones and the cemetery? Would you mind sending them to me or re-uploading your photos to Find A Grave in that size? I make videos with pictures and info on them for my family to get them - especially the younger crowd - interested in learning their family history. I haven't been on Find A Grave that long, but just a couple of years ago the maximum size was 500 KB. Now it is up to 8 MB! Getting hotter here in Dallas. Tricia
