Thank You Larry for allowing my information.
|Jim & Linda Alcott Maples||Maples' Family|
I added a bit of info about McCampbell (M.C.C. Maples on tombstone) Maples. Would it possible for you or another Find A Grave photographer to take a photo to place with the site I just entered. I would love to see his tombstone - in the Maples Leaf book my husband has the stone is described as towering above the other tombstones in this cemetery, being approximately ten fee high. The upper part is shaped like the Washington Monument. Born 8 June 1818, Died 11June 1905. He was born in Sevier County, TN.
My husband, Jim, is a 2nd great-nephew of McCampbell Maples.
Jim's direct is Rev. Peter Maples who died in Madison County, AL and was buried at Bethel Cemetery, Madison County, 1887.
There were 10 sons who came in to Madison County, AL between 1830 and 1833 when the federal government started selling the Cherokee Indian School lands. Their father and mother, William Cordra Maples and Nancy Long Maples, bought in 1833 what had been Cherokee land.
William C. Maples was in the VA militia/Rev. War and was a guard, at age of 15, on the Dan River prior to and during the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, Guilford Co., NC. (probably the VA side of the Dan River since the Maples' clan lived in Pittsylvania Co., VA at that time)
I will be glad to give you more info about McCampbell if you wish - such as his one and only wife Elizabeth Wilder, daughter of Sampson W'ilder, Sr. and Polly Adams. He married Elizabeth in Jackson County, AL (borders Madison County, AL where most of the Maples clan was living) 9 February 1837.
The information comes out of the _Maples Leaf_ compiled and edited by Mary Ford Southworth and Joann Thomas Elkin, 1980. (out of print now) Both of these women were descendants of William Cordra Maples, Sr.
Look forward to hearing from you.

I have first cousins in Falls County, TX but not sure when I will get back to visit. Otherwise, I'd visit the Wilson Valley Cemetery to say 'hello' to McCampbell Maples.

Hi, I want to thank you for putting the picture of Julie on her memorial. Do you mind if I use it in my tree? It is wonderful what you do for people.
|Tess||Eugene L Hochstedler|
Thank you so much for the picture of Eugene's memorial stone. Most of his family lives here in Missouri and did not get to go to the funeral as they are up in age. You are so appreciated for taking the picture of this memorial.

|Ruth M. Brown||Re: Cherri Meek|
Thanks for the info on Cherri Meek. After searching my info on her, I found she had been cremated and the ashes given to her family. I just figured they would be buried or scattered on her husband's grave. I appreciate your checking it out for me.
Thanks so much for taking gravesite pictures of Alice Homan. I really appreciate it!
