My family name is Ethridge and I am from Fort Payne, Alabama. My ancestors are buried in Browder cemetery in Fort Payne. My grandmother who married an Ethridge was Laura Ellen Clark daughter of James R Clark. James R clark married Margaret Posey and they are buried in Mt Herman Cemetery in Fort Payne, Alabama. Margaret Posey parents were Uriah Sidney Posey who married Nancy Gabriella Jane Horsley and they are buried in Towncreek Cemetery in Rainsville Alabama.
James R Clark that was buried in Texas is my great great grandfather. He is the father of James R Clark that is buried in Alabama, my great grandfather.
I apologize that this response is so late, it has been a while since I've had time to get back to my research. To answer your question, the relationship chart shows that Melvin and I are 2nd cousin 1x removed.
Are you related? The only information I have found on the web shows that Melvin was living in NJ or PA and is deceased. This may not be the same Melvin. Is there anything I can help you with?
Hi, Jackie, No, I don't live in Alabama. I have been starting by state and county to make sure there is at least one flower at each cemetery. I have also left flowers or a tribute to everyone that has been sponsored. I am currently working on Geneva County, Alabama. I will be working at this for a long, long time.
Hi, Jackie, No, I didn't know your beloved mother. I came across her grave and she had the sponsored *heart* symbol. I am trying to leave every sponsored grave a flower or tribute. I have also left a tribute to your other sponsored grave of James Clark.
RE: Clark ancestry Hello Jackie, Since I'm a Clark I have a very large database on Clarks. I checked and I don't have anything on your family. I did run across a death certificate for a James R. Clark 1887-1940. The informant on his death certificate was Vivian Clark, Jacksonville, Cherokee TX. I placed a memorial for him on Find A Grave in the Rocky Springs Cemetery, Jacksonville Cherokee Co, TX. I'm sorry I wasn't much help. Good luck on your search. Jenevia Clark-Lowery
