Bio Photo IMPORTANT NOTICE: Over the years I have left hundreds of memorial notes on Confederate veteran's FindAGrave memorial pages, using a particular Confederate Flag as a symbol. Recently I discovered that flag had been replaced with flowers. If you see one of my memorial messages left on a memorial page with flowers instead of the flag, please notify me so that I can make the appropriate changes.

Sons of Confederate Veterans Compatriot - Camp No. 1921 - The Tallassee Armory Guards.

Please feel free to use/share photographs and other historical information I've posted to memorials.

The Chattahoochee Valley Historical Society has endorsed FindAGrave and as a member of that society I have visited many cemeteries and added graves/memorials on its behalf.

I manage several hundred memorials in Chambers County, AL that Hank Rogers transferred over to me before he became inactive with F.A.G.

Also, most of the very old newspaper items on my memorials are through the courtesy of F.A.G. Member #47182102 who has painstakingly transcribed volumes of "The LaFayette Sun", the official newspaper of Chambers County, Alabama.

The Simpson Quarters on the Tallapoosa River are legendary
I saw this quote by you, "The Simpson Quarters on the Tallapoosa River are Legendary." I have been looking for a picture of an antebellum house for years. My husband's grandmother grew up in this house and I would like to provide her a copy of a picture of the house. She said the home was on Frederick Ferry Road and was on the Tallapoosa River in Daviston, AL. She said the owner's name was Simpson and also a Radney (possibly James or Jim Radney). Her father farmed the land. The house had huge columns, so I would think it would have been Greek Revival style. She thinks the house may have been built in 1812. The house was called The Quarter. Coger Hill Church and a commissary were on site. Do you know of this house or where ay find a picture of it? Thank you.

RE: Fleming Parker Memorial
What an amazing find so very little from that time frame seems to have survived I think it is quite fitting it be on his memorial. Maybe this will motivate me to do more research on him and his children. Wonder how Sardis Cemetery is holding up (remember the mess that went on last year)? Let me know if I can be of any help.

Fleming Parker Memorial

Sorry for my tardy reply, I think I would like to hang on to Fleming’s memorial for the time being. I still work on findagrave some off and on although I admit I have been working in my own word documents and ancestry more. Maybe now that ancestry has bought findagrave they will clean it up some. I will be glad to add anything you want to the memorial. Again I need to do a better job of checking this email.

Sincerely, Norm

Thomas Hill Born 1793 North Carolina
Hello, Mr. Churchwell,

As always, I find that your documentation of family cemetery records is outstanding. Thank you for your dedication to this work of preserving family history.

As I search records for Thomas Hill I cannot find any records that link him to parents. He was born around 1793 in North Carolina, married Aleacy or A. Leacy Segraves and is buried in the Thompson Cemetery in Chambers County, AL. Do you have any knowledge of his ancestry or connections? If so, I would be so grateful for that information.

My Father and his sister, LeJean Thompson Johnson, were certain that he was Native American; but, I cannot locate any documentation to confirm that family history.
Thank you for all you do and have done in this work.

RE: Ealie Lorenza shivers
Yes my cousin is going to city hall for records since older records are what's needed. There are no head stones there so only a Shivers carved into the stone wall that goes around the family plot. My uncle Marion gave us the location since we were all pretty young when he passed away.

RE: Ealie Lorenza shivers
From my understanding it's the older cemetery, my cousin is going down to talk to the sexton there and make sure it's the correct plot. They are looking to bury my father there he passed away July 17 2017. When I hear back I will let you know.

RE: Jane Ramage Bonds
Thank You so much for confirming "Colvin" reading that WILL was impossible to tell! & since this isn't my direct Bonds line, I just dabble into them while trying to link the Bonds together Correctly, so Colvin, Richard & John were brothers of Jenny/Jinny WELSH & Nancy MURPHEY & all children of James Bonds d.1820 who is the son of John Bonds d1809 all in Laurens SC? or is John d.1809 James Brother? would you by chance know? Sorry I have to pick your brain since you knew Miss Nell Orr ;)

Thank You for contacting the other memorial owner & letting them know about yours!
