|Sandra Nobles||Stanley Name|
My great grandmother was Sara Frances Stanley, her mother's maiden name was Giles. This line of Giles family was originally from Georgia.
I am descended from Mariah Josephine Barge and James Duncan Shi. I live an hour away from the Barge family cemetery and would love to see it. My goal is to further research the Barge and Shi families and their time in Tennille, Sandersville, and Oconee. While I have lived all over this great country, only by chance did I find myself settled in Emanuel County, only to find that my family history runs deep in this area. I am also hoping Mr. Oliver who states he is president of the cemetery might be of assistance, and it would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you so much! Catherine Davis, Daughter of Sandra Shi Wilson, daughter of (Joseph) Emory Barge Shi.

Dr. James McKissack Moore, husband to Sarah Rush Cheairs 1855-1940 Memoril 182416149
Doing research on husband's Cheairs ancestors. I have found an obituary of Dr Moore that says he died in Spring Hill, Maury Co, Tn and was buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Nashville, Tn. Can't find him listed in that cemetery. Also have a short obit on his wife, Sallie Moore, also supposedly buried in same cemetery and again can't find her listed there. Said she died Apr 28, 1940.
You show Dr. Moore buried in Sparkman Hillcrest Memorial Park, Dallas, Tx.
Do you know for sure that is where he is buried? You do have him linked to Sarah (Sallie) Moore with notation that no burial site is known for her.
Any help on this would be much appreciated.

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.

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.

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?!!

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.

Is that you? I am bubba, preseident of the Barge Cemetery. I am in the Navy right now, in Germany on an exercise. If so, I will see you when I get back. The two big oak trees up rooted in front of the cemetery. I was sad to see them fall. I will get it all cleaned up when I get home.

I am in Germany on military orders. I will fly home next week, then again in May and June. When, I retire that would be awesome. I am the president of the Barge Cemetery. The twins that passed away are indeed buried in the Barge Cemetery. I can find them, I remember grandma Belle and Paw Paw J. A. Barge Sr. telling me about them when I was young. Opal is my grandmother, but she died when my father was young in a car accident. Belle raise her children, my father and uncle, and then myself. She died my senior year of high school at 83. Just info that I didn't know if you had know. I will keep in touch. I will try to take pictures upon my return to the states and send you a picture of their maker. I believe one of the names was Geradine.
