Again, Bryant Austin, with a surprise.
Hi rcrotwell,

Sorry to bother you again, but you may have to give up your Memorial Number 127309878 since FindAGrave does not like duplicate memorial's on their website (it confuse's the researchers out there)...., so you might want to look up Find A Grave# 89629948 and look at the day this memorial was posted or at least talk the person, who posted it.

In addition, Bryant Austin was married to a Temperance Parmelia OSBORN (1752 - 1830), from Ireland (you'll find her at #78857894).

Good luck!

Bryant Austin @ 127309878
Hi rcrotwell!

I'm just curious. This being the 'Bryant Austin Burying Ground', does Mr. Austin have a Headstone, if so, is it possible that I can have photo of it?

If not, no problem.

Thank you, and GOD Bless!

RE: Your Sofge updates
I met your mother. You are my mother's first cousin. Are Isabel and Annabel your sisters?

I grew up in Columbia, SC and Isabel Mauterer (sp?) was the organist at our church.

Your Sofge updates
Memorial# 79464657
I appreciate the Augusta Chronicle obituary you added for my grandmother. It is a poignant addition that I had not seen. I plan on adding a photo of "one of the most beautiful young women in Augusta in 1920!" I am curious about how you were aware of the additional information you added on the Sofges.

RE: Two Ledbetters
Alfred and Lizzie are my direct ancestors. He was my great great grandfather. I have a copy of their marriage license where his parents signed it. I found a newspaper article of Alfred jumping off the Lumber River Bridge with his ball and chain. This had been a family story, so I have always looked for documentation. It was in the Charlotte Observer! I wasn't sure if they buried his body or not, but then I saw these two Alfreds, I started to wonder especially if one did not have dates.
My grandmother told me Lizzie changed her name back to Howell after this, but I think he had left her even before then. There's a story about him leaving his wife while they were working in a field. I never knew what trouble he was in to have been in jail. So my father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were raised Howells even though they all knew they should have been Ledbetters.

Two Ledbetters
The Allen Ledbetter at Rocky Mount matches the Civil War Soldier you wrote about.
He also had a son Alfred (could be A. A. Ledbetter, also). Alfred jumped off the Lumber River Bridge in 1890 and I have been looking for his burial. I am wondering if the one at Rocky River is his son. Do you have a picture of the stone with dates?
