I have finally located Hopewell Cemetery but it is very, very overgrown. The person who found it said it would be best to wait until the winter, probably after Christmas, and he will take me back there. Will try to photograph all I see.

I will be happy to go photograph the marker. Do you have the Section Number and Lot number. It will be almost impossible to locate without this information. If you don't know it you can call the cemetery and they will look it up for you. Their number is: 281-332-3111

Sarah Sawyer Shealy's tombstone maybe next to Andrew E Shealy's needle Monument. Andrew Shealy was found right next to it. Some of the Headstones were buried under layers of dirt and debris. They are still working in the cemetery cleaning it up. I feel like it will be found.

on the graves of his wife and son are marked. There is a concrete flower pot at the head of his grave. I wish I had read this list of request before I got home. I will take a better pix the next time I am out now that I know where it is .

I'd be happy to look for you, but I really need to know which section of the cemetery to search. Apparently the cemetery's policy is not to divulge location information if you're not related to the deceased, but it's nearly impossible to find a grave without it. If you don't know that, I suggest you contact the cemetery to find out. Or, if you have been there and can describe the area with some detail, that might be enough. Of course, if I happen to stumble upon it, I'll certainly get the photo for you.

I walked the entire Brookeland Cemetery and found only one A. Hooks. I will post the picture of you wish, however, I don't know if this is her grave or not. It had no dates on it and was next to a larger stone with a Wlm. Hooks. Can't remember the entire name but will go back and double check now that I have the name Lakey attached to it. I did see a lot of those. Just let me know. Respectfully, ldo

I have searched the road up one side and down the other and have not found these graves. Some areas are very overgrown and apparently so since Mr. Pilson read the graves. I had someone else with me as well looking. Sorry. These are my ancestors as well.

Road #712 is Heidelback School Road. The road runs between Union Bridge Road and Iron Bridge Road near Elamsville. I was photographing cemeteries on this road in the last month and was unable to find the Lewis graves. Mr. Pilson stated that they were 1/2 mile north of the road near the old Billy Via home. I will be out there looking again the week of April 15th. It was bitter cold when I looked a few weeks ago. Your friend should beware of dogs in the area.

Just one other note, Elizabeth Groover's Archer children from first husband lived with her and Groover mother and siblings in 1850 and 1860. If you have info that Elizabeth Nelms also married an Archer first and had kids before marrying Cunningham, please let me know.

|Ronnie||RE: Possible Mistaken Reading of 1880 Census|
Who married James Cunningham, Elizabeth Nelms or Elizabeth Groover?
In 1880, a sister to head of house, the widow Elizabeth Cunningham was living with Sarah Groover Nelms and husband Elias Nelms. So can we automaticaly assume she was Elias' sister? We have to examine all other facts to make sure she wasn't Sarah's sister.
Elizabeth Nelms was born in 1833; she married Andrew Jackson Ricks in 1850 in Baker Co. GA. She lived with her parents the Nelms after her husband died.
Elizabeth Groover was born in 1820 like the woman on the census. There is a marriage record for James Cunningham to Elizabeth Archer for 1869 which was her name after her first marriage. Additionally James and Elizabeth Cunningham lived with Elizabeth Groover's mom in 1870. That would be odd if it wasn't her mom wouldn't it?
We have to look at more than just one record to verify relationships but I can see how that one census could be misleading if you hadn't looked further.
Thanks for your time.
Here is. great page for Nelms researchers in Georgia.
