Bio Photo Greetings,

I have been researching all of my Family Surname Lines since the year 1965; My Family Surname Lines include: The(2) two different "Lewis" surname lines of my Great-Grandfather Leonard Percival "L.P." Lewis, Sr.; his Father is William Edward S. "William S." Lewis (1836 AL - 1872 AL), son of Daniel Augustus Lewis and Betsy (Young) Lewis; his Mother, Melvina "Vina" "Vine" "Mattie" (Lewis) Lewis Davis Stormes; her father is Robert Lewis (1790 NC - 1850 AL) and Sarah (Cagle) Lewis (1790 NC - 1850 AL). These are two separate Lewis lines and they are not related.

Recent DNA Testing and DNA Verified Test Results verified each of the (2) two separate Lewis Lines of Leonard Percival "L.P." Lewis, Sr.,which was his Father's Lewis side of the family and his mother's Lewis side of the family.

Ancestry.com DNA Testing and Ancestry.com DNA Verified Test Results have verified the matches of Leonard Percival "L.P." Lewis, Sr.'s grandson and his great-granddaughter with family members of William Edward S "William S" Lewis (1836 AL - 1872 AL), son of Daniel Augustus Lewis and Betsy (Young) Lewis family, AND ALSO, LEONARD PERCIVAL "L.P." LEWIS, SR.'S GRANDSON'S AND GREAT-GRANDDAUGHTER'S DNA TESTS AND THEIR DNA VERIFIED TEST RESULTS MATCHS WITH THE "LEWIS FAMILY OF WARNER HALL", AND INCLUDING, ALSO, MANY DNA MATCHES IN THE WARNER FAMILY LINE (OF ELIZABETH WARNER LEWIS, THE WIFE OF "COUNCILLOR" COLONEL JOHN LEWIS, III), AND IN THE RANDOLPH FAMILY LINE (MARY RANDOLPH LEWIS, WIFE OF COLONEL CHARLES LILBURN "OF BUCK ISLAND" LEWIS).

These matches are in the DNA family trees on Ancestry.com and are both set on public view and have also been noted in the listing of the trees.

The second (2nd) Lewis line of Leonard Percival "L.P." Lewis, Sr. is his mother's Lewis line: The parents of Melvina "Vina" "Vine" "Mattie" (Lewis) Lewis Davis Stormes are Robert Lewis (1790 NC - 1850 AL) and Sarah Cagle Lewis (1790 NC - 1850 AL), who came from NC to TN to Marshall Co., AL where they settled. They are buried at Lewis Cemetery in Marshall Co., AL, which was originally the old family cemetery. Recent update: Robert Lewis (1790 NC - 1850 AL) is the son of John C. Lewis (1740 Halifax County, VA-1830 Spotsylvania Co., VA) and Elizabeth (Lax) Lewis (Born 1745 Halifax Co., VA. (NOTE: THIS LEWIS LINE "DOES NOT MATCH THE DNA OF THE LEWIS FAMILY OF WARNER HALL"!! THIS IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT LEWIS LINE).

NOW, CONTINUING ALL OF MY FAMILY LINE SURNAMES: My McDonald Line back to James McDonald (1800 TN-1890 AL), who's father came from Scotland and was in TN before or by 1800. James McDonald came to AL. He married Miss Nancy Starnes, in 1820 and at that time, they settled and lived the rest of their lives in Henryville, Marshall Co., AL. They had Ten Children, and this families history has been richly documented and proven. James McDonald (1800 TN - 1890 AL) and his wife, Nancy Starnes McDonald (1803 TN - 1870 AL) and other family members are buried at McDonald Cemetery in Marshall Co., AL, which was the original family cemetery. James McDonald (1800 TN - 1890 AL) was one of the first settlers in Marshall Co., AL.

My Starnes line from Peter Starnes "Alabama Pioneer"(June 01, 1781 SC - Apr 13, 1852 AL), who came from TN to Marshall Co., AL with his wife, Mary "Polly" (Roden) Starnes and their children , including their single daughter, Miss Nancy Starnes, who married James McDonald (1800TN - 1890AL). Peter Starnes line follows back to England.


My Stanfield Line back to John Stanfield (1755-56 to 1805SC) "Revolutionary Soldier", and Sarah (Roberts) Stanfield (1757-1857),my Stanfield Line came from SC to GA to North AL.

My Ashley Line back to John R. Ashley (1820SC) and Laura Anna Pruitt (1925SC) who came to North Al from SC.

My Gober line back to William Gober, I (1718 VA - 1794 NC)and Nancy Meekin Gober (Apr 16, 1720 England - Dec 12, 1785 NC);

My Durham Line back to Young Marcus Alexander Hezikiah Durham (1823NC-1900GA) and Mariah Elsberry Durham (1828GA-1898GA)came from NC to GA and my line to North AL. Young Marcus Alexander Hezikiah Durham's Grandfather follows back to Matthew Durham (1730NC - 1795NC).

My Evans Line back to Henry Evans (1827 GA-1917 GA) and Nancy E. (Smith) Evans (1839 GA-1921 GA), daughter of Drewery Smith and Sarah (Stovall) Smith.

My Harris Line back to Washington "W.W." Harris (1818SC-1902AL) and Elizabeth Webb Harris (1820SC-1908AL), who came from SC to North AL. Our Harris line was entered into the DNA project many years ago and update on lineage can be found there.
Washington "W.W." Harris (1818SC-1902AL) and Elizabeth Webb Harris (1820SC-1908AL) are both buried at Webb Cemetery, Etowah County Alabama. they were buried behind Elizabeth (Webb) Harris's Father, John Marshall Webb. Her mother, Jane (Quinn) Webb. The top of their (Washington "W.W." Harris and Elizabeth Webb Harris), grave marker headstone was broken off and it's parts were scattered near their burial site. The base of their grave marker headstone is still in place.


My other Surname family lines are from my ancestors: Jacob Cagle, James David Weatherly and his wife, Elizabeth (Hunter) Weatherly, John Gordon Gazaway, Martha J. Sullivan, John W. Ellis and wife, Mary Ann (Sitz) Ellis, Andrew Sitz, Magdalene Boast, Mariah Elsberry, Caldwell, Lindsey, Barber, and others.

Thank you for adding the additional information on Luther Lee Herron when Nancy submitted the headstone photos; we have a lot of genealogy data online on our family lines, but you had data we don't have. Do you have more on that Herron Line?

Our data is accessible via http://mytree.net

Thanks again
Lee

Etta was Dad's Mother
Thanks for the information! Etta Isham married Carl Leming and my Dad, James Sidney was one of their 3 children. (went by Sidney) Thanks for putting this in my name. My daughter is into ancestry, I need to show her this. Does that make us cousins twice removed or what?
Once again, Thanks
Jean

Riggins
George Newton Riggins (Amanda and Rilla's brother)(my Great Grandfather) is buried in Clayton Cemetery (Alabama City) which surprised me because I thought Aunt Rilla had said all of her family was at Forrest(perhaps I should have listened closer). In any case, I you know where Willie Riggins (brother of Amanda, Rilla and George) is buried? It would have to be Forrest or Clayton.

Amanda Lee Riggins Moody Headstone
I came across your memorial and photos of Amanda's headstone. Amanda's sister Rilla Riggins was my Great Great aunt and we were close. She had asked my mother, Bobbie Jean Riggins to find Amanda's grave and put a headstone on it because it only had a foot marker. We looked for the longest time after Aunt Rilla passed but could never find it and we were told the paperwork was destroyed in a fire! We placed a headstone next to Aunt Rilla and their Mother,Mary Elizabeth Wynn to honor her request. Now I have found this that says she's in block 4, section1.....I can't wait to get to Gadsden
this weekend to look for it! How did you find it? Thanks!
Also, Amanda married George W. Moody (not Tom) after he jilted Aunt Rilla (yes for her sister) . When Amanda passed, George then jilted Aunt Rilla again for her best friend Ruth!
At least this is the story that I have heard since childhood! And "Aunt" Ruth Moody and Aunt Rilla remained friends until their deaths.

Robert Gee Chandler headstone
Hi, Judith Nan,
My husband and I went to the Willis Cemetery today and looked for Robert Gee Chandler's headstone while we were there. I knew the general location from a Willis Cemetery inventory, but we could not find it. My husband began to kick the dirt at the place where it should be, and there it was, buried in the dirt and dead grass on top of it. We cleaned it up the best we could and took a picture, then added it to his memorial page, Find A Grave Memorial #63883345. Thought you might want to take a look at it.

It was a lost headstone if we had not searched for it. I wonder how many others have been lost the same way.

Happy ending. :)
