distant cousins
Hi Mike,
I think we are distant cousins. My great great grandmother was Rosannah Waites Wilson daughter of Levi Waites. I have been trying to find the gravesites of James E.M Logan born 1775 and died Sept 21 1839 in Coosa Alabama. Also his son John Logan born 1807 died 1855. They are related to me through Ella Lenmare Logan who married Louis Edward Wilson who was Rosannah Waites Wilson's son. John Robert Logan was Ella's father and a confederate soldier in the civil war. I'm surprised he doesn't have a gravesite in a national cemetery but I can't seem to find him either. Thank you in advance if you find James, John, Or John Robert Logan's graves.

Old Doris Cemetery
Mike, I saw your post about wanting to know where the Old Doris Cemetery is. I took many photos there last year. I have them posted on my facebook albums...

also here is the link I used to go to the cemetery. I put it in my GPS and it took me right to it... Channa Creek Rd which goes into
129 Hollis Ferry Rd, Tallassee, AL
or google it to find a map .. it is around Kent Rd. Dean Circle, Upper River Rd. if you have not already located it, hope this helps....

RE: Old Doris Cemetery
Here is the best I can do off of memory but it will get you close ;-)

Go on the Upper River Road from downtown Tallassee heading towards Kent (County Road 44). Go until you see County Road 46 on the Right (Dean Circle). Take that right and the road should kind of come to a fork and you'll see a water tower across the road. Stay to the right there and it should turn into Hollis Ferry Road. It should turn into dirt but keep going straight and the dirt road will fork and in the middle will be Old Doris Chapel Cemetery.

Take in mind these directions are coming from the Jail house in Tallassee heading towards Kent.

RE: Ledbetter's
I don't have anything other than the two Ledbetter's that married some of my Great Aunts and thats it. Aaron Holt was Annie Holt Ledbetter's brother.

There was also a Churchel Marvin Ledbetter that married my Great Aunt Mattie Lou Golden, not sure if Marvin and Herbert were related or not.

Yea after I posted this up years ago I didn't know but my Mother quickly corrected me and I just haven't had a chance to edit it yet.

Are you kin to them? Annie's brother Aaron was my Grandfather. Herbert actually married my Mom, her Sister and Brother as well.
