Memorial #8213023
Nathaniel Cheairs 1818-1914

Your cousin and my husband's 3x great grandmother's youngest brother. She was first born and he was youngest. She had married Nathaniel Scott and moved before H.F. was ever born.

In the FindaGrave memorial there is mentioned that his son-in-law Dr. J.M. Moore took his body back to Tenn after his death in Waco.

I have found only 3 children in FindaGrave, no Moore. Found where Sallie Rush married Dr. Moore, but can't find anything else about them.

We took a trip to Spring Hill, Tn and went thru the Rippavilla Plantation house. Enjoyed exploring the grounds and cemetery, where 4x great grandfather is buried.

Louella A. Cheairs Bennett/Cheairs Cem.
The South Reporter Newspaper
Holly Springs, Miss.
May 11, 1933


Mrs. Lou Cheairs Bennett, aged 84, the widow of a Confederate veteran, died at the home of her niece, Mrs. Jasper Gilmer, of Hudsonville, Monday night.
Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Curtis, Methodist minister of Lamar, and the burial was in the old grave yard of the Cheairs plantation, Tuesday afternoon.
Mrs. Bennett as Miss Lou Cheairs was born and reared in this county on the old Cheairs plantation near Hudsonville. She was married to John Bennett, Confederate soldier, who died a number of years ago. She is survived by one sister, Mrs. Hattie Johnson, of Moscow, and several nieces and nephews.

(Will you add this to her bio? I will try later to get her husband's obituary and send it to you.

Memorial #66931184
Nathaniel Scott (1786-1868 - He is my husband's 3x great grandfather. His wife is in the system with two Find A Grave memorials (#83904319 and #106695276). I am trying to get just one of the above memorials for a mother for all their kids (chose Mary Cheairs Scott #106695276 created by Gene Waldrop). What I would like is to put a "note" on any of the children's Find A Grave memorials that you created/maintained with the "other" memorial 83904319 listed.

I am just trying to get all the kids listed on one of the memorials so there is a link. Does that make sense to you? Let me know what you think?!!

Thank you,
bobbie scott

Roger Adams 1952-2016
I am not sure if you still have my phone number but needed to inform you of Rogers' passing. Can't get in touch with jennitt O'quinn or Charline McGee. Not sure what I did with their numbers. They are needing photos of Roger as a youngster up till he quit sharing photos for his funeral. Thanks, Penny

In response to the recent message left by Bobbie Scott in reference to Susan Sedberry Scott Mallard Alexander, Nathaniel Scott moved from Hardeman Co, TN to Tippah Co, MS about 1843. This date is based on deed records.
Susan married in 1844 in Tippah Co, MS. Prior to moving to Tippah Co, MS, Nathaniel and family had lived in Maury, Giles and Hardeman Co, TN. I also have all of Nathaniel's children being born in Tennessee. Nathaniel was my gr gr gr grandfather. I have researched a lot of county records and believe the above info to be correct.

Susan Sedberry Scott Mallard Alexander - She was the daughter of Nathaniel Scott 1786-1868. Her place of birth shows Tippah County, Mississippi. Nathaniel is an ancestor (4x great grandfather) to my husband. He has info that all of Nathaniel's children were born in TN as they did not come to Ms until late 1840s.

Just wanted to throw that out to see if anyone else might have the same info as we do. Am so sorry to see where Nancy Burdrick died...looks like she had a real love for ancestors and history.
