|Bio and Links|
April 1861 marked the beginning of the War Between the States. One month later, Annie Hanna was born to John and Athalinda Hanna. John enlisted in the Confederate States Army in November 1861 and served as Private in Co. B, 4th Alabama Infantry.|
He was present at many battles in Virginia and served as litter bearer. Athalinda sewed coats for Confederate soldiers and served as Chief Nurse at the hospital in Madison, Georgia.
John and Athalinda are buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Jasper, Florida.
Annie married Thomas Jefferson Darracott and the family moved to Lakeland, Polk Co., Florida in 1895. Annie became a civic and patriotic leader going on to become the founder of the Lakeland Chapters of United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1904, United Daughters of the American Revolution and The National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century. She proposed and spearheaded the effort to erect a Confederate monument in Lakelandʼs Munn Park in 1910. The figure of a gallant Confederate Soldier now stands as a memorial to all who served the Confederacy.
The Lakeland Chapter of UDC changed its name in 1945. Now the Annie H. Darracott 791 chapter of UDC remains committed to these objectives: Historical, Educational, Benevolent, Memorial and Patriotic.
Annie went to heaven in 1956 at the age of 95. She is buried in Lakeview Cemetery, Lakeland, Polk Co., Florida.
We honor her memory, her leadership and her dedication to UDC.

I believe the memorial #8483811 for Charles Darracott is incorrect, the photo shows a birth date of Aug. 1883. The correct Charles Darracott is interred at Immanuel Church in Old Church, Hanover County and he died in 1885. I have a photo of his marker, but I need to take another as the marble stone is weathered and covered with lichen.

I am added some marker photos for the 5 Rorabeck graves. The graves are located in Section E. There are 5 markers in a row with a family marker inscribed Rorabeck behind the row of 5 markers. I am adding a plot photo. In the photo the markers are inscribed as follows from left to right. The marker on the far left is inscribed, Charles Rorabeck 1827-1906, next is Electa Rorabeck, 1832-1915, next, in the center is Ella M. Rorabeck, 1854-1944, to her right is Ralph C. Rorabeck, 1869-1952 and then next and on the far right of the plot photo is Annie G. Rorabeck, 1879-1963.

My husband is related through his daughter Nancy English and JR English. Are you family or looking for their history?

Ann, you left a message on my GGrandmother's memorial stating She Was a Real Daughter. I am assuming that refers to the UDC. I have never found any information referencing the War. could you provide more information, it would be greatly appreciated.
|S J||Stone Monument at Oakland Cemetery in Clarksville, Arkansas.|
Hi there, I am in the process of fulfilling your request for W. Stone at Oakland Cemetery in Clarksville, Arkansas. A civil war veteran. I was not sure if this is a family member or not. I see his wife is buried next to him and there was not a photo request for her. I just wanted to tell you if this is family I am going to upload her as well and her middle name is Eoline not Coline. Take Care, SJ

|Thomas Daniels||Re: William Henry Venable|
I see that your chapter UDC has placed flowers on the memorial for William Henry Venable. I have uncovered a controversy about his burial and hereby want to make you aware of this controversy so that you can place this material with your material on him. This William Henry Venable memorial is Find A Grave memorial #24100353.
According to the web site posted below run by Gail Red @ http://www.illinoishistory.com/csa-veterans-illinoisburials.htm he is buried in Richardson Hill Cemetery, Dahlgren, Hamilton County, Illinois whereas he is reported buried in Brunswick County, Virginia on the Find A Grave memorial.
This note is just to let you be aware of this conflict in burial data.

If you follow the link below, you'll see that it is on private property, accessible only with permission.
If you get permission for me to go on the property, I'll take the picture.
|Barbara Munson||Jacob Fickeissen|
Please be advised that I'm deleting memorial #70632822 where you had left a note, as it's a duplicate of #71588346 where Mr. Fickeissen's name was misspelled. Memorial #71588346 has now been sponsored by one of Mr. Fickeissen's descendants.
|Lynne Sims||re Thomas Cowger in Bata Mill|
Hi, I'm sorry to say, unless something has changed in the last few years, that pictures in Bata Mill Cemetery are impossible to get. My husband and I were there in 2000 and met a man who was working to clear some of the area searching for his relatives' headstones. We took pictures of the few headstones he had uncovered. A few years later we went back and the property had changed owners and was heavily posted. The area we could see from the road that had been somewhat cleared was completely overgrown again. It's a real shame that it is not accessible and able to be cleared. It is a large area and would take an enormous amount of work to clear. I'm so glad I took the few pictures I did. As far as I know they are the only recent pictures available of any headstones there.
|F. Neil Simms||Henry Andrews|
I reported earlier today that I could not find Henry Andrews' gravestone photo for you - that was incorrect! I went to two adjacent cemeteries today and accidentally looked for him in the wrong one...
Subsequently I was able to get the photo, so if you go to his page you should see it.
Sorry for the mixup,
