|Bio and Links|
I work full time as a visual resources curator and communications specialist. I also research my family history and the history of early Pentecostalism in Alabama 1900 to about 1925. Currently most of my family history research is focused on Russell County, AL and Muscogee County, GA. I have found several faraway graves of ancestors via this website and am very grateful to everyone's efforts to help everyone else! I can take photo requests occasionally in the Roebuck/Trussville area and in the east Tuscaloosa area.|

Thanks for all the information. I deleted the data entered by Emogene, who originally created the memorial, and added your research and the obit. We are all grateful for your generosity.

Russell Co. Chadwick's are a tangled web for me! Short answer is "Percy" was a King.
Did I understand the obit you sent for her was dated 1901? Strange because she is listed (Memorial# 21570394) with a 1903 YOD. She, and son Samuel share a marker. Her husband, Elias is buried in Texas, if memory serves. The Elias Chadwick at Shiloh is a different guy...
Wish you would post her obit to our Russell Co. Groups site, because Janice (and others) may not have it. Also, Janice has sorted the family out far better than I have, so I'd differ to her to answer any questions you may have. Ofcourse, there may be archived messages on that site, which may help you. If you have access to 'The History of Russell County, Alabama', or 'The Heritage of Russell County...', I believe they both contain info on the family... and possibly some pics of a few of them.
Happy to continue the conversation at the Russell County site...

My grandfather grew up a few houses away from the Harris's and he married Joel Chandler Harris's niece.
I agree that with his Pulitzer Prize Award he should be in the famous category.
|John Mallory Land||Athalia ANtoinette (JOHNSON) BOYKIN, Mem. #54038014|
Hi, Rachel - Whenever I come across a BOYKIN as I am doing research, I take notice because I am a BOYKIN direct descendant, though it is a number of generations removed. I will be glad to transfer this memorial to you, since it is your gg-grandmother, and I am confident that if you ask J. Lowery (Contributor #47089151) for a transfer of Athalia's husband James W. BOYKIN's memorial, you will get it because Jackie is very good about that. I volunteer in the Genealogy Department of the Columbus (GA) Public Library, so if there's anything I can look up for you, please feel free to let me know. Good luck in your research!
