To the descendants of Jeremiah Tidwell, son of Robert Tidwell and Monica Mamie Roden: A few of us have placed a beautiful marble stone to the
memory of Jeremiah Tidwell, first person buried at Tidwell Cemetery in Allgood, Al. We had to borrow money from the cemetery fund to finish
paying for the stone and have it standing by Decoration Day (third Sat.in May, for this cemetery). His monument is to the right of Thomas E Tidwell and his wife Morning (Jeremiah's daughter).

I am searching for information on a long lost great great aunt of mine Bessie Miller Redmon Hunsucker. Bessie was the wife of Mr. Charles Hunsucker who apparently is a brother of your Minnie Hunsucker Clay.
Bessie was the daug. of Henry Miller and Nettie Galloway of Bowling Green KY. After Nettie died Henry remarried to Sally Manning. Bessie married young to a Josh or James Redmon and left Bowing Green KY around 1905 or so and was lost to the family for most of her adult life.
I am hoping to discover the children of Bessie and Charles marriage. The last contact was from my Mom's first cousin John Miller back in the 1960's when he visited Aunt Bessie in TX. He remembers her having at least one adult daughter from her marriage to Mr. Hunsucker.
Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated.
