RE: Isabella Williamson Youmans
I see that I gave you wrong directions for New Hope Church Cemetery in my first message. I was looking at the cemetery book and got it backwards. You've probably already figured out that you travel north on US 1, not south. North goes through Lexsy and on to Swainsboro; south goes to Oak Park.

RE: Isabella Williamson Youmans
I just reread your message and see that you were asking directions from I-16. The same directions I gave would work. Just get off at U.S. 1 and travel north toward Lexsy.

Yes, I know Isabella had 11 children. I've been working on our genealogy for 40 years.

You cannot attach a child to a parent on Findagrave, only a parent to a child, and if somebody else has already posted the memorial for the child, you cannot post the parent; they have to do it, and sometimes they won't.

To get to the Solomon Williamson Cemetery, go south on U.S. 1 from I-16; turn on GA 46 before you get to Oak Park; turn right on first dirt road and the cemetery is at the next intersection.

Good to hear from a cousin! I don't know where you live, but New Hope Church Cemetery can be reached by traveling south from Oak Park on US 1 Highway, go through Lexsy and about 2 miles south of Lexsy GA 192 intersects US 1; turn left (New Hope Church Road) and the cemetery is on the left about 1.6 miles down this road.

Isabella Williamson Youmans' parents were Solomon Williamson and Delila Trapnell. They're buried in the family cemetery on the plantation:

My father was a grandson of Solomon Williamson by his second wife, Clarissa Calhoun.

I am also descended from two of Solomon's brothers, George W. and Andrew J.
