Mize stone
Happy to help! She also has a footstone marked "C.M." The other side of that marker has some epitaph on it, but it is so close to the iron fence and faded that it is almost illegible.

You can email me at or call me at 972-479-9742. I live in Dallas, TX but was born and raised in Anniston, Calhoun Co., AL. My most recent Mize relatives were from Randolph Co., AL just south of Calhoun Co.

Sorry not to answer sooner. My husband has had some health problems that have consumed my time. Remind me exactly what I can do for you and what information you need updated. Is it a memorial I can transfer to you? Again, forgive me, and let me hear from you.

Who is your ancestor that needs to be updated? Do you have the update information? If the person in question is a closer relative to you than to me, I will be happy to transfer to you.

Suchy File
Sorry it has taken so long to reply, holidays you know. So, to answer your question, yes I do have the Suchy File, and I have it on file on my computer partially.

I just got a new computer and new system, it seems to have scrambled much of my old work. I can only find pgs 21 to end at pg 68. I don't know why I don't have pgs 1 to 20.

If you will email me, that way I can email back to you what I already have. Will come in 3 emails to you as it is quite a large file.

Then I will work on getting the needed pgs 1 through 20 scanned, then we both have them. I hope I make sense here.

RE: Randal McDonald
I have a James 1756 - 1 Jan 1829 who was married to Sarah Nancy Carruthers. I do not know if this nancy was married to a Mize first.

This James was a son of Randall McDonald born abt 1730 - isle of Skye, Scotland.

He is NOT the Randall McDonald that I was referring to . My Randal was born 24 Apr 1797 in Isle of Skye and died 21 Dec 1864 in Ware County, GA. He married Catherine Miller.

I think you have combined the two, easy to do with at least 8 Randal(l)'s born from 1730-1850's

Hope this helps. Robin

RE: Randal McDonald
I found the information in an obscure web search. It was at this site:

The part that interested me was the following paragraphs: (esp. the last)

Donald MacDonald - "Dahl Mach' Ahhuir" - (Donald, Son of the Sheriff), a cousin of my grandfather, ( John MacDonald) came to America with my grandfather and his three children. He had an only child, Ranald, about fourteen years old, whom he brought with him. He remained in Moore County, N.C. a few years, and came to Georgia and settled among the Indians, at what is now Waresboro, in Ware County. There he was bitten by a rattlesnake, and died suddenly. His widow, then past middle age, married Thomas Brown, a Scotch adventurer from North Carolina. He and his wife died, leaving the young Ranald to endure the meandering vicissitudes of a life among the redmen of the woods. Ranald, being a sprightly, kind, social, just, industrious, and economical boy, soon became a favorite "Pale-face". This important advantage enabled him to turn his time and opportunity to great advantage, and he soon acquired ample means to educate himself, and he became a practical scholar. He studied medicine, and became a successful physician, and the only doctor in the whole country [sic]. With these advantages he soon became wealthy and influential. He was the Nestor of civilization, education, and religion in an extensive region of country. He was a popular and sucessful political leader, and represented his country in the legislature whenever he would consent to do so. He married Miss Catherine Miller and reared several children, all of whom became prominent and useful citizens. He died in 1867. His son William Angus was born in 1817. He served four years in the Indian Wars. He represented his county six terms in the legislature and five terms in the State Senate. He attained great success as a business man, politician, and a Minister of the Gospel. He was the founder of the villiage of McDonald in Coffee County, it being named for him. His father largely aided in building the Rail-road from Brunswick as far as Waycross on which the town is located. He raised a company for service in the civil war, and was elected its Captain. He was soon promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He was wounded at the battle of Cold Harbor, and reluctantly resigned, but though incapacitated for field service, his time and large means were freely spent for the relief of the poor, the sick, and the wounded at home. Colonel McDonald now resides at Waycross, Ga., and was the father of twenty-two children, eleven of them having departed this life, fifty-eight grand children, and ten great grand children. He was a successful preacher for thirty-five years, and raised and educated many poor orphans, thereby fitting them for useful lives. He is now gone to receive a crown of many stars in a world of eternal felicity. He died a few months before reaching 80 years of age.

John Claugh McDonald, a prominent citizen of Waycross, Ga. is the youngest child of Colonel McDonald's first wife. This scion of the honored old stock is destined to maintain the high grade of citizenship attained by his illustrious ancestors.

I, Martha Crawley, grand-daughter of Randal McDonald, wish to make a correction in the above statement. My grand-father, Randal McDonald, had a sister Nancy, two years younger than himself. She married Washington Knowles and had five sons; Daniel, James, Martin, John and Eleck. Daniel Knowles married Charlotte Sweat, sister of my mother (Tobitha Sweat) wife of William McDonald. They had two sons and six daughters.

John, I have looked for her before but not able to locate her. I should be going back over before long, and I'll look some more. In the meantime, though, somebody may claim it and get there before I do. So I won't claim it right now.

I visited this cemetery today and I have a picture of a marker for:

George W. Latham
b 10-16-1881
d 11-25-1946

I know this isn't exact, but it is very close. Before I post it on the site I wanted to make sure this is the right one.
