Bio and Links
Bio Photo Wife and stay at home mom to four beautiful girls. One in heaven due to premature birth. glad that we can find our loved ones graves on here. I have learned a lot this past year researching my family roots. The most surpring is that the majority of the family started out in New England then moved down South little by little. So whomever stated that the civil war was brother against brother was correct. Also this whole world is smaller than we think it is and we would be wise to realize that. Ancestral homes include the entire United Kingdom. Many, many of my people come from this area. Much of New England, all the way down South on the Eastern seaboard. Other states include TX,AK,TN, and MO. Lots of my people from the mountains of North Georgia. Another thing I have learned is that family names are spelled many different ways on records of all types

Sarah Wilkinson Blankenship
Hi Kristy,

My name maiden name is Blankenship and
I was amazed to see pictures of Sarah Wilkinson Blankenship, and Elizabeth Hudson Blankenship. Were these pictures passed down to you? I just love old family pictures. Do you have more or know of any old stories?

Thank you Kristie!!!

Sara Weaver and Solomon Palmour
These are my 6th Great Grandparents...and the original name of this cemetery was know by the old timers as the Palmour (Silas Boon) cemetery.
Solomon Palmour 43020698
Sara Weaver 43020513

Sara and Solomon are buried in the Palmour-McClure cemetery. Sara has a tombstone there as well as Solomon.

to make it even more confusing there is a Palmour (John) cemetery and I am currently trying to straighten this all out...what a job. Thank you very much.

John Elrod Cemetery
The people that you list as being buried in the Mountain View Cemetery for the Elrod Family is only partly correct. Abraham and his wife are buried elsewhere on the land that they owned. In fact the graves are now in the front yard of a house in Cherokee Forest. They are now completely unmarked and the present owner of the property is most likely unaware of the fact that they are graves on the property. My Cousin made and attempt to marked the graves but was turned down by the owner of the property at the time. I have pics of the John Elrod Cemetery and people that are buried there. Sybil McRae included this family cemetery in her book on cemeteries in Hall County. If you would lie to know more and have pictures of the cemetery as it now exist, you can contact me. My e-mail address is I am presently working on a marker to identify this cemetery so that it is not lost to development like the graves of his parents.

Martha Ann Martin
The Martha Ann Martin that should be attached to this family is seen in 1880 Census Hall County living with her mother and unmarried at age 36. The Martha Ann that married Porter Ownbey is in Walker County GA with her family in 1850 with Porter also there. Her family was in Jackson County in 1840. It appears that she is with them then. Martha and Porter may have married in Union County while visiting his relatives. His family was from NC and a lot of the Ownbeys in Union county were from NC. The couple had their first child in Walker County where her family lived. They moved to Springfield before there second child when some of her family also moved to Springfield. Her brother John had his first child in Arkansas, was married in Walker County and born in Jackson county according to military documents and death certificate. John's middle name is mcduffie so he is easier to locate. I have a pension paper signed by Martha Ownbey for my husband's great grandmother to get a widows pension when Martha Ann's brother John McDuffie Martin died.

Martha Ann Martin Ownbey
I am curious as to how you connected Martha Ann Martin Ownbey to the parents you have her listed under. I have her parents as John Martin and Sarah McDuffie Stockon. Seethe duplicate memorial I added several years ago. She and Porter Ownbey are listed in what I believe to be her parents home in 1850 in Walker County GA. My husband is a decendent of her brother. My email is Ps. I did not mean to duplicate but had spelled the name differently as Owenby instead of Ownbey.
