Bio and Links
Most of my paternal ancestors settled in Randolph, Wayne, Henry & Delaware counties, Indiana. Have many Quaker ancestors from the early colonial period through the Civil War period on this side of the family. My maternal ancestry is from Cocke county, Tennessee and also Haywood & Buncombe counties, North Carolina. Almost all my ancestors came to the United States in the very early colonial period, fought in the American Revolution, and advanced west with the growth of the country.

A few of my ancestral surnames: Conyers, Seagrave, Sutherland (also Southerland), Rich, Kendrick, Blackwell, Fine, Harris, Denton, Hiatt, Current, Lewellen (various spellings), Starbuck, Mills, Mulford.

This is a source of irritation to other researchers & contributors who cannot see the inscriptions. Not only do we want to know what the stone looks like, we want to see the inscription!

TO PROPERLY & CORRECTLY PHOTOGRAPH A TOMBSTONE: Get down even with the stone. This ensures that the inscription can be clearly read & lessens the likelihood of incorrect transcription of data at a later time. Take the photo looking straight at the tombstone; then from an angle both from the left and right - this will help you get a clear reading of the inscription in bright sunlight or in shaded areas.

Linda Ford Sharp
Roadman Cemetary in Cocke County
There is a listing for Sarah ALMA Ford with husband Loyd Ford. My grandparents were Loyd and Sarah ALICE Ford. What are the chances that the middle name was transcribed incorrectly? Birth year is probably same as my grandmother's, but for some reason I thought she lived until around 1917 or later.

I am currently researching my family and found my grandpa's obituary online. I was reading the comments and found one from: Harry and Louis Robert from Richmond saying they were related to Philip C Conyers through Charles Conyers of Losantville, IN. I was just curious if you knew how they were connected. Thanks!

Dougie S
Sutherlands in South Mound
I just happen to be a Sutherland too. And Bill & Mary Sutherland were my grandparents. My Dad, Douglas Sr. is their oldest son. I am Doug Jr. My dad passed away unexpectedly in Feb. of this year and is also buried in South Mound. I would love to know any information that you have on the Sutherland's. I know that they didn't find out until after my grandfathers death that his name wasn't William, let alone Bill. That's not counting all of the ways that the last name was spelled. After my dad passed away, we found some names scratched on post it notes that we couldn't make much connection with. When you get a chance, please drop me a message. You may be the missing link to my family. That didn't sound right, did it? haha

RE: Arlene Lowe (15123713)

If I remember right Arlene is in the newest section, I can not remember exactly what section now but on the west end of the cemetery is where I would look.

Sorry I could not help more

Have a great day

RE: Ann Ferrell Brasher
I have confirmed information for all four marriages of Nathan Brasher. Marriage records and census records confirm that he was, in fact, married to all four women.

I had thought that there might have been more than one Nathan Brasher that married some of them because of the age difference, but he is the only one in the area with connections to each of them. The census records show his age and the age of his wives.

RE: Nathan Brasher
It is possible that his body was moved, but if that was the case, I would think that they would have moved hers as well. There are also a lot of spouses that died long after their spouse died and either remarried or lived with other relatives and were buried in different cemeteries. I have several individuals in my family that fall under that scenario.

I know of a few cemeteries in the area where bodies were moved from one cemetery to another and have family members that were affected by those moves as well in Wayne and Randolph Counties.

I've also seen tombstones in cemeteries that list a person's name on it, but they were never buried there and they have a tombstone with their name on it in another cemetery.

Thanks for noting the South Cemetery tombstone that has his name on it.

RE: Willie Southerland
I totally understand. I do have some information on Willie and can use that but I would like a more personal touch from family, if possible. Would you please contact me thru my email since this is a public message? I would rather not put other people's names on here as I would want to protect their privacy, as well. Thank you. I can give you names of people and explain further as to what I want to do. Again thanks.

RE: Willie Southerland
It has been almost 2 yrs I believe since I have contacted you about Willie Southerland. Remember, I am doing some research on some WW II Veterans that lived in Cambridge City and was in the service the same time as my dad. You mentioned that you had some information on Willie's military career. I would still love to have whatever information that you have and can give me. I have started putting all of this together. Anything you can send me would be wonderful. Since you are related, if you would like to write something about him that would be even better. I will put the article in with your name. Maybe memories or what you heard him say about the war.

I also would love to know if you know what house Willie lived on when he lived on Third St. Omar Peelle and my dad both have him as living there when he entered the war. I also have his enlistment date as 12/5/1942.

Any pictures, metals, newspaper articles, anything on his military career would be wonderful.

It is easier, for me, if you contact me by email: If you don't mind. Sometimes I don't see my notes on here and sometimes when I travel it is easier to see my emails.

Again, thanks for anything you can give me. This has been so interesting. I am putting this together for the History Room in Cambridge City's library.

Thanks again
Sherry Sands
