Bowman Family History Hi, Kenard. My name is Cherice Ratliff. I have been researching my family history for about a week or two, and I came across a grave you posted belonging to Ida S Bowman Parker. Ida was my Great Great Grandmother Grace Bowman's sister. I was wondering if you have any more information on the Bowman Family in Polk County at all. As far as I have been able to get to is Grace, and just now, Ida. If you could please respond back to me when you have the chance, that would be great! Thank you for your time. My email is email@example.com
RE: Nancy (Fincher) Tate & Elmina Jones Dorman Kenard, I am SO sorry. I did not receive a notification of your message. Yes, Nancy Tate's maiden name was Fincher. This is the first I've heard of any of Nancy and Henry's children except Elmina. So these would be Elmina's siblings?
As far as I know, most of the Dorman family is buried in that cemetery. I have done no research on Henry at all. Didn't even know where to start. Anything you can share would be greatly appreciated. Henry would be my GGG grandfather.
It's been a long time since I researched my Dormans. I'm sending this same message to you in email in hopes that we can connect and make some headway.
Thanks so much for the message about Henry. My email is JodieK444@aol.com.
Pinkney Jones I wanted to let you know what information I found out about "Pinkney Jones" at Sardis cemetery. I walked the cemetery and could not locate a marker, so I contacted the current pastor Rev. Talmage Pope 770-748-2953, who is the custodian of records and had produced a graph locating all plots within the cemetery. I'm sorry to say he had no record of the plot. If there is a chance it could be listed under another name he may be able to help you. Sorry I could not find it.
Thanks for photo John W. Crabb Thanks for the photos. That is my wife's family. I am tranfering her ancestors to her to manage. She uses the name Wanda Crabb on find a grave for her public name. We have noticed kinship of your ancestors to my wife's maternal side i.e. Locklear, Newman, Cooper, Williams etc. The First Cav had 7 companies A-G with appro 125 men in each company. They fought in over 175 engagements and out of over a thousand men less than 50 officers and soldiers remained when Gen Johnson surrender to Sherman. And Johw W. Crabb his brother Samuel Jackson Crabb, and his brother Capt Jesse W Crabb were among those remaining and all in Co A out of Polk County. Capt John C. Crabb was commanding Officer until he died of wounds received in the battle of Murfreesboro, TN charging the Courthouse on direct orders from Gen Forrest on Forrest Birthday July 13 1862. Died on July 15 in White County, TN and originally buried on William Anderson's Farm burial grounds. Later his remains were brought back by his brothers and buried at Barber Cemetery.
RE: Bowman Memorial...part 2 Bowman memorial transferred except #72425997 which I deleted because another contributor has created memorial #76665993 for same person, different married name. Even though mine was created a couple of months earlier, #76665993 has a tombstone marker. Best regards.
RE: Floyd Creek Cemetery My Mom's sister Mary Jo Brown married Raymond Morris and George was his father. I have a cousin Jimmy who faithfully cut my grass last summer while I was dealing with a broken ankle. Jimmy is Raymond and Mary Jo's son. I can remember my Mom talking about "Aunt Jane" who married the waits. On the Cochran side, a cousin on my Dad's side is Teena Floyd. Her Mom was a Cochran. I think her Dad was Spurgen (probably spelled wrong). You and I are connected is several ways! Do you have any pictures of George? I have been working on some things for Jimmy and his family. My regular email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I live in Taylorsville. I am on the opposite end of the county from you. Have a good day. P. S. I go by Virginia which is my middle name.
RE: Floyd Creek Cemetery Home coming is the 28th of April...next Sunday. Do you live is this area? There will a fellowship meal afterwards and there are a lot of good cooks. Please try to come if you can. Virginia Garrison
Floyd Creek Cemetery I have left you a message before and never received a response. You have Floyd Creek Cemetery listed in Bartow Co. and that is wrong. It is in Polk Co. Also, I knew many of Waits that you have listed and George Morris is the grandfather of my cousin. Please delete all of the entries you have for Floyd Creek. This is very confusing for those who are serious in searching for family graves. All the ones you have listed are listed in the correct cemetery in the correct county. I am sure that you would like to make the correction and not have incorrect things listed with your name. By the way, I go to church at Floyd Creek and walk pass the graves you have listed when I visit may parents and grandparents graves. Vagarrison3124@aol.com
Stringer Family Cemetery I haven't physically gone searching for the Stringer Family Cemetery because I've been unable to find any general info on it online. According to this website, it's on Brown's Bridge Road, which is a fairly long road. Do you have any further location information or alternate names which may narrow the search? I'm new to the site, so I apologize if you've already answered this question!
