just a friendly correction!!
The lady that is standing next to my grandfather was his sister inlaw Betty Fuller. She was married to his brother Robert(Bob) Fuller and they lived in Granite City Ill. And as for the lady that was "freaking out" happen to be my mom. She was not "freaking out" as you put it, she happens to be in her 70's and just happens to talk loud, which she's done all her life. So you could have called her as she ask and you would have found out more instead of jumping to conclusions. I am very interested in to history of our family and meaning no offense am not sure how you fit in. So if you could please respond back in a more polite manner I would appreciate it. Thank You,
Craig Cherry

Hello Amy Fuller,

I saw your note mentioning Serbina Adeline Williams Phipps Covin as your great grandma. Looking at my own family tree she would be my great great grandma. We just might be cousins. She was the mother of my great grandma Rhoda Isabella Williams who was the mother of my grandpa Willie Jewell who is my dads dad.

I remember when I was a kid in 1977 or 78 going to Missouri and actually visiting one of my grandparents in a retirement like home. At the time I was 10 years old and my little brother was 1 and great grandma kept pinching his toes telling him the frogs were going to get them. She also kept calling my little brother by my dads name. I also remember soon after our visit she passed away. I wonder if the woman we visited was Rhoda Williams. The time line kinda fits.

Thank you for sharing what information you have on this family tree. It has been amazing just imagining what life would have been like. We had such a strong fierce grandma. 11 kids and a widow. How amazing.

If you have additional information I would love to view it.

Thank you,

Monica Jewell

If you are the one who posted the note for this lady, I would like to establish contact to help in my research.

I am down the line of the Brinker family, and the McMahons married into that line.

I do not have good family history on that side and would like some additional detail.

I am actually fourth generation St Louisan German and Brinkers are the maternal side of my family.

Any help would be so appreciated!

RE: Ernest Gray Bonham
Yes, he was.
Wanted to leave you a point of information about Simeon Smith Bonham's wife. Ramsey was the name of her second husband, Abiezar Clark RAMSEY, a Methodist Circuit Rider. They married on August 4, 1837 in Oak Hill, Butler Co., AL. Her maiden name was Elizabeth Amanda Wardlaw. I came across this information when I was doing research for our church history and used a book my husband had on hand here in our library. Our church was founded in 1851 and the people who came to this area came down what has come to be called the Georgia Road by way of Rome, GA and Blount County, TN on to Fort Payne, Ashville, Old Cahaba or Trussville, now, down to Elyton, Montgomery, and on to Mobile to take crops to be shipped. I found the entry in The FEDERAL ROAD through Gerogia, the Creek Nation, and Alabama 1806 - 1836. I know that Simeon and his brother, James Butler, came to Montgomery to practice law. The book mentioned was written by Henry DeLeon Southerland, Jr., and Jerry Elijah Brown. Ten miles south of Montgomery Bonham's was located through travel on a "wretched" road. James Stuart and a 26 year old man named Phineas Taylor Barnum were traveling by stagecoach from Columbus, GA to Montgomery where Barnum caught a steamboat for Mobile. Stuart (a Scotsman) was keeping a journal of his travels in 1820 and so was another man named Adam Hodgson who had written about the terrible condition of the road where the horses had gotten tangled in vines and bagged down in the swamps from Evan's Tavern to Bonham's. Simeon had died and Amanda was left with the running of the plantation and the stagecoach stop.These men wanted breakfast. Mrs. Bonham was in no mood to prepare breakfast for the men. Stuart described her as "the worst tempered American female" he'd met in his three years of travels in his THREENYEARS in NORTH AMERICA, 2 vols. (New York: J. & J. Harper, 1833) 2: 111, 113-114, 115. However, in his own MEMOIRS of a METHODIST CIRCUIT RIDER, Abiezer Clark found Amanda Wardlaw Bonham much the opposite and loved her greatly. She died on June 30, 1854 and in additon to her four children by Simeon, she gave Rev. Ramsey seven children. I told my own grandchildren to remember their manners because our sins will sometimes find us out and be written about by others.

Amy, this is the information I have on Roberta Tuller and her research which may be found online:
An American Family History, John Lothrop & Hannah Howse by Roberta Tuller,

It is lengthy. Look for the George Bonham and Family History. There is an email for Mrs. Tuller and you may reach her there. I did.

Good hunting!

RE: Ernest Gray Bonham
Ernest Gray Bonham was my grandfather and Horace Edgar or Edgar Horace Bonham was my great-grandfather. I never knew either of them and Una Cross Bonham was my grandmother. They had all passed on before I was born in 1950. I have lots and lots of information and photos of Martin Luther Bonham's grave in Louisville's Middle Settlements Methodist Church Cemetery not too far outside of Maryville, TN. Look up Roberta Tuller and her work on the history of the Bonham family beginning in Masssachusettes and New Jersey. She has done some amaziing research! I thought it was very interesting that you are a Fuller. This should really surprise you, Amy, Samuel Fuller's parents died during the first year after the MAYFLOWER landed. He lived with her uncle Dr. Samuel Fuller, whose home is still standing as I understand it. Most interesting reading. I need to do lots more!
Have a good evening. Suzi

Hi Amy,
I am the oldest daughter of Conrad Gray Bonham, son of Ernest Gray Bonham. I found your name on the "Find a Grave" site. I live in Springville, St. Clair Co., AL presently and am interested in finding out how we are related. I am aware of the Fuller relationship way back about 1620 and the marriage of Samuel Fuller to Jane Lathrop and their daughter Hannah to Hezikiah Nicholas Bonham. Looking forward to getting in touch with you.

Mae (Hall) Crayne Holland
Hi Amy,

Mae was the mother-in-law of my 2nd cousin once removed, Donald Richard Hayes.

Holland on 03 Oct 1993. Mr. Holland preceded her in death on 19 Feb 1998.

Mae's Find-a-Grave memorial number is 64544181.

I hope this helps.

I HAVE the direct line to the Ramseys in Virginia. I've been doing searches for along time now. My great grandfather was James Lowell Ramsey. His father George Thomas Ramsey. Of Franklin County Virginia. Then it just goes up from there. But Im interested in Woodsons Ramseys Jrs slaves.. I know one was named Dick and a lady named Fuller. I think there history is also important to our country as well. They did do hard labor. Thank You JENNIFER s

William Bonham in Jefferson Co, AL
I think you may have your William, son of Euclid and Nancy, confused with a William O. Bonham who has the same date of death in Jefferson Co. Alabama. His parents were Perry and Missouri Bonham.

Isom Edwards 47266583
I believe I am in some way related to Isom Edwards. My gg grandfather, John Berry Edwards is listed on the 1850 census with him. John's daughter, Minerva Elizabeth "Lizzie" Edwards is my great grandmother.

I cannot tell if John is a child from perhaps a prior wife of Isom, as Isom would have been 18 when John was born in 1835 or perhaps a nephew. Mary is too young to be his mother.

If you have any information that could shed light on the parentage of John Berry Edwards in your family line, I would be most appreciative.

Ramsey Family
Hi Amy ~ I really don't know what I am doing here but inquiring for more info on the Ramsey family because of my great great grandmother Lula Hollis Florida Ramsey Downen from Gallatin County Illinois. I am greatly interested in any information about her and in particular to her union with Albert Birke Ramsey which is what is entered in this find a grave website but there is a question mark. I know that she had another child who passed away young, and I know it was with a husband with last name of Ramsey but I have not until now been able to find any information. I read that there is a family history written about the Ramsey's so would like to know if this is the correct Ramsey that she was married to and any other info I can get. Hope you do receive this and appreciate any info you can supply! Thank you, Vicki Chester

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for leaving a token for my precious son. I still can't believe he's gone and the violent way he did it. The pain is so intense and relenting. Thanks again for your concern, kindness and caring for our family.

Perhaps you may want to check with any of the several veterans chat rooms or webpages. Perhaps if you can find an obituary on your father's friend from the hometown.

Hi Amy,
Sorry it to so long to get back to you! So much of my genealogy is buried in a box in the garage - but those names do sound familiar. I'll try and drag out what I have in the couple of weeks. Did you find him in the Census. As I recall, he is in one of them with his mother in AR. It must have been 1880?? Thank you so much for leaving flowers for my mother!

Edwards in Gallatin County
Amy, I added Ora Ramsey Hall to my tree just to see how we are related and it's a tenuous connection, according to Ancestry Ora is the "great granddaughter of the husband of my 1st cousin 4x removed". I find though that as I add more and more people to my tree that sometimes I find I have a closer relationship to someone than I realized, when I add more relatives. We may have a closer relationship through some of Ora's and Marsh's children.

you`re welcome
Amy, you are most welcome! It was my pleasure to visit your loved one`s pages and honor their lives with a token. Besing able to "visit" and learn about other`s ancestors and loved ones is one of the things that makes f-a-g so special to me.
Take care and thank you for writing,

RE: John J. Richiusa
Glad I can help. I'm not related but the name is familiar but can't place it. I looked through some stuff including the funeral cards but can't come up with anything and the cemetery isn't one that I normally post. The name reminds me of somebody that one of my mother's cousins married. I'm curious so probably will look a little more. I found Joe and Rosaria in the 1920 census; living in East Aurora, NY. Joe was born about 1879 , immigrated from Italy 1899. Rosaria was born about 1892, immigrated from Italy 1899. Looks like daughter Josephine (abt. 1909) was born in Penn., sons Charles (abt. 1911) and John (abt. 1913) were born in NY. Then I found your tree on ancestry and it does match up. I'm happy I had it listed for you and will transfer ownership. I know that thrill when something is found. I've been doing genealogy about 13 yrs. also. Good luck.
