You're quite welcome, Janice! Note how George Brown's headstone is off its base and turned facing east. Interesting. Mind if I ask about the application you mentioned? -James

elijah huddleston
there could be a problem with getting a picture of his stone. dodge grove records indicate that
he is buried in Sec 1 Pottersfield.
potersfield was hit by the tri-state tornada in 1917 and most the stones are missing about 95%
gone. this is a very old section and the records of grave location for this section were destroyed also.
there is no record of mary catherine debord huddleston.
I will check to sse if a stone does exists for elijah once the snow melts its under 2 feet of snow right now.

Venable Family Cemetery
I am sorry to say there are no stones in this cemetery. It was only recently that we discovered what this cemetery was. In the late 1970's the local historical society did a survey of all the cemeteries in the county. At that time all they found was a fieldstone cemetery with no names whatsoever. Just recently after I had discussions with a Venable descendant (I think Jim Hutchinson)we have beliefs this fieldstone cemetery did include burials for the Venables. Are there any other items that could be the proof you need. I live in Shelbyville and am on the Shelby County Cemetery Preservation Board. I would be glad to do whatever I can.

Yes, Ardelia was Alice's aunt. What I have posted is correct.

The 1880 census for Winn Parish, LA shows Alice H. McIlwain (age 2 yrs) as the daughter of John T. McIlwain (age 30) and Amy E. McIlwain (age 25). His obituary named among his survivors his daughter "Mrs. Tiny McManus, Mathis, Texas". Alice Hazeltine McIlwain McManus's death certificate (posted on her memorial # 39611691) gives her full name, birth place (Louisiana) and names her parents as "J. L. McIlwain" (sic) and "Amy Martin". These are the parents I have her linked to.

Ardelia Haseltine McIlwain Durham's memorial is # 21319215. However, another contributor created it, so I can't add parent links. Her death certificate (per gives her birth place as Atlanta, Winn Parish, LA and names her parents as John McIlwain and "Carylon Edward". Her only surviving sibling was named as "Mrs. Marion Melton". This was Caroline Josephine "Dona" McIlwain Melton (# 11706574), whose memorial I created. I have Caroline linked to her parents, John Theophilus McIlwain (# 9252660 ) and Ellender Caroline Edwards McIlwain (# 9252695). THESE ARE THE PARENTS OF ARDELIA HASELTINE MCILWAIN DURHAM. She was named as John Theophilis McIlwain's daughter in his bio (added by yet another contributor).

I don't give up that easily! I've contacted the church to see what records they have and am waiting to hear from them. I also plan to revisit the cemetery in better sunlight, and may also check out a nearby Catholic cemetery where one of Lucy's children is buried. As for Benjamin, the one I photographed is Lucy's grandson as there are already family links in the memorial.

Benjamin Hewitt
I just added the grave photos for Bejamin Hewitt. If you note the date, he can not be Lucy Hewitt's husband - most likely a son or even a grandson. I'll continue looking for Lucy though.
