Ella Owen Harrell
You sent an edit requesting to change the parents of Ella Owen Harrell buried at New Hope Cemetery in Madison County, AL to John Dimue Owen and Katherine Childress Owen. I am not certain this is correct.
I've spent the afternoon looking at censuses and records. My 2 main reasons for thinking that this Ella Owen Harrell is the daughter of Robert and Martha Owen are:
1. On the 1880 and 1900 censuses, Ella the wife of Thomas Harrell reports that her father was born in Virginia. Robert Owen was born in Virginia while John Dimue Owen was born in Alabama.
2. The Owens family members who are buried in New Hope were members of the Robert Owen family. Thomas Harrell and his parents are also buried at New Hope Cemetery.

Jenkins Cemetery where the John Dimue Owen family is buried is some 15 miles north of New Hope. Families certainly tended to remain together for burials in cemeteries.
I realize that the two birth years for the 2 Ellas are different, and that the 1855 on the tombstone tends to point to John's daughter. I still feel strongly that Ella Owen Harrell is the daughter of Robert Owen. If you would like to email me, my email is:

Elizabeth Beals(1807-1872)
Where did you find the info for your memorial? Elizabeth Beals Mitchell has a memorial for the Fairview United Methodist Church Cemetery in Washington County also. I just want to bring some clarity & understanding to her burial.

Thank you for all your efforts.

RE: James Tobias
I don't believe that Brown was her maiden name. She was married before she married the Chapman. I am going to the museum in a bit to look at her obituary. I will post it to her memorial.

James Tobias Chapman
There is a marriage record in Hughes County, Oklahoma for a J.T. Chapman to a Sallie Brown on October 10, 1909. This is in Book 1 on page 510 of the records. Do you know if she went by Sallie? If so, I can add this information to their memorials.
The birth year for Sallie and Sarah F. are the same.

Adding children to memorials
U sent me a message as follows:
Please add Selmon Arnold Atkinson #82120502 to his parents grave site.
Father: Lewis Arnold Atkinson #76046626
Mother: Ulysses Sarah Atkinson #76046611

The parents must be added Selmon's memorial which I do not manage. U will need to send a message to the manager of Selmon's memorial to add the parents - then he will show on the parents memorial as a cild.

RE: Find A Grave - Duke
I did not see any other Duke's around him. If you are sure he is buried in the same cemetery, I will be more than happy to get a picture.
