|Eli Chandler||RE: Matilda Chandler Carter Smith|
Mary, the more I think about it the more I think several of the Chandler`s could be in Old Poplar Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery or Honsley Cem.? Have you been to this cemetery? I have not. It looks in sad shape from the photos on Find A Grave. It looks like it is right off the shoulder of the road. I have been to Poplar Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery a few times. If I remember the history right another church existed somewhere nearby before the present church was built. The old Log Cabin like church I think? Maybe another cemetery was next to it? Is this how Old Poplar Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery got started? Gabriel Smith did own this land that the cemetery was on? Correct...Lindsey Chandler(Matilda`s younger brother) and daughters where buried in the newer cemetery next to the newest church where they where members. The many other Chandler`s died way before Lindsey and would have been buried in a cemetery near their church if not on the farm. They died way before the newest Poplar Primitive Baptist church was even built. Doubt they would have moved dozens of bodies to the new site. So this means they are probably somewhere else either Old Poplar, some other cemetery or cemeteries, or on a farm or farms. What do you think? Sorry, I hope I did not loose you. I had to spend some time on this email myself. Sincerely, Eli Chandler

Hi again Mary, there is, in my opinion, a really good chance that Matilda is buried with Gabriel. With no grave stones existing we may never know. Several of her relatives are thought to be, and are, buried nearby in Popular Springs Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery. Many of them, at different times, appear to have been members of this church. Many of the Chandler`s, in these generations, cannot be found and either the grave stones, where destroyed, or never put up. There are so many that cannot be found that I am thinking they may all be in a private family cemetery somewhere in Carroll County, Georgia. Lindsey Chandler`s farm was close to this church but I have not tracked down exactly where his property was located. This is my next step. He lived on this farm for 53 years until he died in 1891. Lindsey Chandler is buried in Popular Springs Church Cemetery along with two of his daughters and they have markers. I am hoping there may be a small family cemetery on his old property. If there is it is probably overgrown and forgotten. Wish me luck and if I find out anything I will let you know. Please do the same and keep up the good work on Find A Grave. Sincerely, Eli Chandler

Hi Mary, great bio. on Gabriel. He married my 4th great aunt Matilda. Just figured this out with all the different information. I guess the memorial to her is misspelled. Can you get the duplicates for Gabriel removed?
Do you happen to have any more information on Matilda? In your opinion which cemetery is she really in? I know there is no grave markers for them. Sincerely, Eli Chandler
|Helen Tidwell||RE: Joiner gravestone photos|
You are welcome. If I can be of any further help, just let me know.

I've linked James Silas Bowen to his parents. Thanks for the information!
|Head Hunter (Maria)||RE: Hayes Family|
Well, thank you so much. I do enjoy helping people locate their family and being able to give them something tangible to go along with them when they have been gone long before we came. Mom is awesome and thank you for asking. She goes for another cancer scan in a week. God is so great, just blows my mind just how powerful He really is and how little control we do have. Very humbling. Hope you and yours are doing well too.

I know right where they are buried so will go get the photos first thing in the morning. I also transferred the son's acct that I made at Vaught Cem. in Jackson County. Figured you must be related somewhat since Lena transferred the parents to you.
|Lena Ward||Wilson and Virginia Hayes|
Hi, just wanted to let you know that the requested memorials have been transferred to you.
