|Karen||RE: Lost ancestors Big Lick ?|
"Lost ancestors Big Lick ?
Many ancestors in Boonsville, Rocky Mt, Roanoke area cannot be found, I fear they may have been in Big Lick when it was moved. All died prior to 1880. Is there a record of who was buried there that you know of? Thx gordon"
If you are referring to the "Old Lick" cemetery that most graves were moved to Coyner Springs Cemetery, then no there is not a listing of burials that we have been able to find. The Old Lick cemetery was primarily African American with many graves that were unmarked originally. We have been able to identify some of the possible original burials from death certificates, but unfortunately most of the other individuals have been lost due to progress.

I went ahead and transferred Zack to you. I am not kin to anyone buried in this cemetery. If he is "famous", be sure and let findagrave know.
|AMHunter||RE: Phillip Pipkin Bowen|
Phillip was my great great grandfather. My Grandmother was Sallie Thompson "Hunter", Her Mother,my great grandmother, was Willie V. Bowen "Thompson".
Phillip was her father. Philip married twice. He married each of the Dubose sisters, Frances & Mary. I believe Frances died early in their marriage and he eventually married the other sister.
He had several other children with Mary besides my great grandmother. The children's names were Phillip, Henry, William, Eviline (died at 1 yr) , and Willie V., my great grandmother. Willie V. actually lived with my great aunt, Mellie Thompson "Repsher" until she died. I never met her but my father and his cousin Saramel, Mellie's daughter, said that she spoke french almost exclusively.
I haven't been successful yet tracing back beyond Philip. I haven't been able to go any further up the Dubose family line either. It's been a fun search. I will let you know if I find out anything further. We definitely are related albeit distantly.

|GreenHills Stones Calling||RE: 71286078 Pearl Casey|
I excitedly hoped it was going to be at match, too, but then when I compared with cemetery records, Pearl turned out to be someone totally different. Hopefully you'll find a match as more burial records go online. (Note: All GreenHills Memorial Park burials have been put onto Find A Grave)
|GreenHills Stones Calling||71286078 Pearl Casey|
I have updated the memorial for Pearl Casey in Green Hills Memorial Park. However, the Pearl buried here is a female, the wife of Lamar Casey. When you find a moment, would you please remove the photo of baseball player Pearl Casey?
Best wishes in your continued search,
|Maria Russell||RE: Transfer of memorial|
WOW!! Gordon, it is such a nice feeling that I played a small part of your family history. For your information it started when a San Antonio police officer email asking my help. He wanted to find the buriel location of a DPS officer whose photo is on the wall in the courthouse downtown. The officer was killed in the line of duty. I did find where he was buried and then decided to enter all the DPS officers that were killed in the line of duty. I read all your memorials that link to each other. They all have such an interesting stories. I know that you will maintain the memorial and update the memorial as needed. However I did not know that you have added the photo to the memorial. They were such a nice looking and beautiful couple. Keep up to good work.
