Cherokee Cemetery

Thanks so much for replying to my inquiry! It was good to know I found the right grave site. If all goes well I will be headed that way sometime next year to meet with cousins I never knew thanks in part to your research. Thank you again. If you would like you can transfer the memorials to me to manage. I would be proud to do so.

Thanks again and take care.

Cherokee AL Cemetery
Hello Henry,

I'm trying to determine where the Cherokee Cemetery is. I visited what I believed to be the Cherokee "Colored" Cemetery a couple of years ago and your pictures look oddly familiar but when I visited there were very few headstones. We went up the street past the high school and turned left down what appeared to be someones driveway to get to it. There were just a few headstones but obvious signs of sunken graves. Is this the same graveyard where Lester & Elvira Rutland are buried?

RE: Albert Goodloe
Thanks Henry. Emma Susan Goodloe was the daughter of Albert Gallatin Goodloe and she married Henry Cook Barton and four kids with Albert Goodloe Barton being their third. The local fellow I mentioned who has taken care of the Barton Cemetery is Goodloe Pride with Goodloe being his first name. The people at the Florence Lauderdale library know him and contacted him while I was in town. They should have his information. My e-mail is for future messages so that we don't have to stumble thru Find-A-Grave.

RE: Albert Goodloe
No picture available, eh? According to the book "MY COLBERT COUNTY FAMILIES" Albert moved to San Antonio, TX for health reason about 1855. Ended up not doing him any good so he returned many years later to live out his life. I thought I read where he moved in with the Bartons since his old plantation had been sold and that when he died he was buried in the Lane cemetery. He was born in 1812 and died in 1887 so this hopefully matches what you saw. Do you know Goodloe Price? I met him a couple of years ago when I was in Tuscumbia in July. He said the cemetery was very overgrown and he had tried the maintain the Barton side and not anything else.

Let me hear from you.

I searched again for this grave site but did not locate it. Can you confirm that there is a marker on her grave?

RE: Pounders, A. O'Neal
You had the correct person, I had the death date wrong.

Thanks for the tombstone picture. It also proved that his name was spelled with no "L"'s as I had thought it should be. Thanks again.

let me run something by you. There is a gentleman
who has a fence in the Cherokee area that has several
posts that are gun blanks from the Nelson Dickson Gun factory, that was in the Cherokee area 1861, if you hear who this gentleman is llet me know we need one of those gun blanks for a museum.

C.S.A Soldiers Colbert co al
Henry Thanks so much for sending me the message
I have James Barton Farris at Morris Hill cemetery. James B was taken prisoner after the
battle of Franklin Tn,. and spent the rest of the
war in prison when he was able to file for a pension he was refused for desertion. The Confederate Gov paper work was so fragmented
they were unable to tell if a soldiers was a prisoner or a slacker. In his case he was a true
hero. Mr. Long at Wrights Cem I will file for a
later date just working on Franklin Colbert and
parts of Lawrence Co. Alabama
Thanks again
keep em comming
