Doug Marion
Elisha Porter
Elisha's second wife was Eleanor Marion (1813 - Jan. 16, 1877) Eleanor was the daughter of Patrick and Jane McNeeley Marion who immigrated from Northern Ireland to Charleston, SC in 1821 with their family. They first settled in Fairfield County, SC and later in CHester County, SC. Eleanor was first married to Henry McDowell who also immigrated from Northern Ireland to Fairfield Co, SC. The McDowell family moved to Chickasaw County, MS where they farmed and later owned a hotel.

She apparently married Elisha POrter between 1857 when both of their spouses died and 1860 when the census was taken. ELeanor is buried in Houston Cemetery under the name Eleanor McDowell.

I am descended from Eleanor's brother, John Alexander Marion, who remained in CHester CO, SC when many of his siblings relocated to Mississippi.

Almisha Beaver Dunlap Beller
Could you please correct your bio that shows Martha Hague as her mother. Her mother was Rhoda Emeline Waits. Martha became her stepmother after she married Almisha's father in 1878.

Thanks,

Albert Cleveland Walker 27659338
Hi Cynthia,
I have been trying to research Paulina P Walker Gentry. Albert Cleveland's wife Sarah C is on the same headstone marker as him but I cannot read the dates. Also, when I bring your picture up, I noticed that you had the date of death different than the stone. Most likely an input error, God love you for taking pictures and posting them. People like me are forever indebted for your generosity of time and kindness. Thanks for your help...I would like to be able to have him linked to his wife. Tess Beshara

Abraham Kershaw
Dear Cynthia, You added flowers and add a note to Abraham Kershaw memorial Page. Abraham did not travel on the David Evans Company (1850) Website: http://www.lds.org/churchhistory/library/pioneercompanysearchresults/1,15792,4017-1-114,00.html
He was not listed in the Company. I have George W. Woodhouse history. It is stated that Alice left her husband; Abraham and took her 4 youngest children with her. When she left she went into hiding from her husband for two weeks. They joined up with the David Evans Company and came West. If you want a copy of this History, let me know.
There is a 1850 Census from Sanpete, Utah and Abraham is not listed on that Census. Alice is listed as the wife of James Case. James Case was Called on a Mission to the Indians near Nauvoo, Alice and her children left Sanpete, Utah and went to Cedar City and then onto Beaver. I got all this information from Patricia Lindsay Clemons, from Nampa, Idaho.

T. Dunlap
I sent you a correction for T. Dunlap in Beaver Cemetery, Carroll County, Arkansas on June 14th. Since I didn't receive any word back, I thought I'd use this forum as you suggested.

T. Dunlap is Tennessee Dunlap. He was born in Sangamon County, Illinois and was the son of Isaac (Find A Grave #29045335) and Mary H. Bowers Dunlap (Find A Grave #29045715), both buried in Brittin Cemetery, Sangamon County, Illinois. I would greatly appreciate if you could connect him to his parents. Thank you for your cooperation. He and his brother Henry (also buried in this cemetery) are brothers of my paternal great grandmother, Mary Ann Dunlap.

Gratefully,
Carole Herndon Weimer

HALL CEMETERY SEARCY CO, AR
Cynthia, I HAVE VIEWED SOME OF YOUR POSTING ON FIND A GRAVE, ITS A GREAT SITE AND THANKS FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS.

I HAVE NOTICED THAT YOU POSTED CYNTHIA EVAN IN HALL CEMETERY. HER MAIDEN NAME WAS ROBERTSON. ONE OF MY ROBERTSON/REDDELL/RUFF LINE. SHE FIRST MARRIED JONATHEN WESLEY RUFF 22 AUG 1845 IN SEARCY CO, AR. HE WAS KILLED BY BUSHWHAKERS IN 1863 IN RICHLAND VALLEY. THEY HAD (8) CHILDREN. CYNTHIA THEN MARRIED REV.MATHAN G. EVANS ABT 1864 IN SEARCY CO, AR. CYNTHIA DIED IN 1878 IN RICHLAND VALLEY. AFTER HER DEATH REV NATHAN G. EVANS THEN TEMPERENCE JANE (ROBERTSON) REDDELL. TEMPERENCE JANE WAS PREVIOUSLY MARRIED TO ACQUILLA REDDELL. ACQUILLA DIED AND IS BURIED IN HALL CEMETERY.

REV NATHAN G. EVANS AND TEMPERENCE JANE (ROBERTSON) REDDELL MOVED TO COMANCHE CO, TX IN THE 1890'S

THE PERSON THAT YOU LISTED AS CYNTHIA EVANS IS THE DAUGHTER OF VINCENT AND CHAROLETTE (REDDELL) ROBERTSON. I THINK THAT THEY DIED IN BRANSON, TANEY CO, MO

I PLACED THE FUNERAL HOME MARKERS IN HALL CEMETERY FOR THOSE PEOPLE. SOME I COULD NOT PUT INTO THE PROPER PLACE BECAUSE NO ONE SEEM TO KNOW AN EXACT LOCATION.

I WOULD BE PLEASED IF YOU WOULD TRANSFER OF THE RUFF, ROBERTSON OR REDDELL'S TO ME.

IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO WOULD YOU PLEASE ADD THE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION SO IT MAY BENIFIT OTHER RESEARCHERS.
