|George Collier||RE: You Found Us!|
My wife and I live in Nashville, TN. She is the Henderson in our family - but I am the one consumed by genealogy. You and my wife share Benjamin Stephens & Dorothy Jemima Waller as grandparents. My current project (which should finish in June) is to compile info on ALL of the descendant families (i.e., each family incl. parents, both sets of grandparents, and children) of the four Henderson siblings who emigrated to Greene County, AL in the 1820s. There are at least 1300 of them - it will be a humongous reference book of Henderson families. My objective is to complete this effort prior to the Texas Hendersons reunion being planned for Tuscaloosa, AL on 2July.
Incidentally, I was reared in the Missouri Bootheel and graduated from SEMO State at Cape Girardeau in 1966. Since retiring 3.5 years ago, I spend all of my time working on genealogy for both myself and my wife.
Please send me your email and I will send you my wife's ancestral tree (110 sets of grandparents going back 300 years - including the Stephens & Wallers). I will also send those sections of her Ancestral Annals book which relate to six generations of her Stephens/Waller grandparents running back in time from one of her grandmothers.
My 'Holy Grail' of research is to identify the Henderson parents of William Franklin Henderson and the mother of Agness Robinson Stephens. I am almost certain all of these folks we are both researching lived together (Wardlaws were at Long Cane near Abbeville, SC) just prior to 1820. Whatever info you might have on those folks around Abbeville, SC at that time would be much appreciated.
Look forward to collaborating you.

P.S. I do have write-ups on both Benjamin & Blessing Stephens as well as Capt Edmund & Mary Pendleton Waller. These two families are in the 10th generation of my wife's lineage. Should prove interesting reading.
|George Collier||William Robinson Stephens (1802-1865)|
One set of my wife's gggrandparents is William Franklin Henderson (1811-1890) and Agness Robinson Stephens (1818-1873). These two emigrated from Abbeville County, SC to Greene County, AL in 1824, married in Nov1835, and raised their family there in Greene County. In addition, ten (of 16) of my wife's gggrandparents moved from SC to Greene County in the 1820s - 29 of them are buried there.
I stumbled upon the referenced memorial while looking for somebody else. After reading it, I recognized that "Old Mr Stephens" (and his wife Agnes Smith Robinson) are one set of my wife's 5G Grandparents. As you probably know, several of these families split in Abbeville County, SC in the 1820s with one group moving to Greene County, AL and the other to Kentucky. I have evidence (i.e., a Stephens-Wardlaw marriage in Greene County in 1837) that these families in AL & KY were still in communication with each other at least thru 1837. Other close family names I have been researching include Wardlaw (or Wardlow), Griffen, Logan, and Henderson.
I would appreciate the opportunity to talk with you in more detail about these families (just prior to 1820) and their stay in Abbeville County, SC. Several of us fellow researchers have been trying (effort goes back 20+ years) to identify the parents of William Franklin Henderson (1811-1890) and the mother of Agness Robinson Stephens (1818-1873) - I am now certain they were part of this contigent in Abbeville, SC. Also, I am convinced that Agness' mother married Benjamin Waller Stephens Sr (1797-1850)in Abbeville about 1817 - unfortunately, this woman died giving birth to Agness in 1818. Benjamin (her father) then gave his dead mother's name (i.e., Agness Robinson Smith) to his daughter.
Thanks for your consideration.

P.S. As a Christmas present, I published my wife's 580pg Ancestry Annals book. The book includes info on 110 sets of her grandparents going back about 300 years - book includes several generations of Stephens. There appears to be a lot of overlap in our research interests.

Anna, I am very happy to transfer this memorial to a family member who will honor his memory. Thank you for all your kind words. Pearl

I went back into my records and did a little more digging. I now believe the stone (and it has the right dates) belongs to Ferdinand Kennett the son of Mortimer Kennett. Mortimer was a brother to Ferdinand St. George. Mortimer's son went to Montana and died in Missoula. He would have been a grandson, not the son, of Press Graves and Margaret Porter Kennett.

Anna, The other posting wasn't mine so I can't make any changes. You will have to contact the other poster to combine the postings.
Anna, can you give me the number of the memorial you're referring to? I'm not finding it searching my memorials for Ann Williams or John Williams. Thanks! Bev
|jasmith||RE: Mary Hardin|
Annie: Thomas Hardin is my grandmother's brother. My grandmother is Bertha J Hardin, ID# 42137186. I don't ever remember meeting him, but did meet some of her other siblings. I have been trying to connect my family members on Find a Grave based on information that I have. I have a couple of books about the Hardins, but some of the information is incorrect.
Thanks for contacting me. Keep up the good work!

|Susan Aduddell||RE: John Williams|
That is so great! Which web site did you use to find the census. I cannot find it an ancestry.com. I have not looked in familysearch yet.
|Diane L. Teague Webb||Anna Lee Wilson Munson|
I just found that Mary M. Munson Fisher her parents Reuben T. Munson and mother Addie Lee Wilson Munson all buried in Hillcrest Cemetery in Fulton, Callaway Co., MO.
I found Addie's death certificate and need to enter her into Find A Grave.
Reuben T. Munson's grandfather was Sanford Munson of Scott Co., KY., the brother of my 2nd ggfather Solomon Munson of Scott Co. KY. left in 1830's for Warren-Henderson Co., Illinois.
I will add Addie Lee Wilson Munson to Find A Grave and LINK to husband and daughter. Thank you for the notification.

|Edward Crowley||RE: William Strother|
I believe it is William Strother, his wife Anna Kavanaugh, Thomas Coleman and his wife Susanna Coleman. However, there is no writing left on the four tombstones - it has weathered away, which would seem to indicate that the tombstones are very old. They are located on private property in a small grove of trees in front of our house at 475 Arrowhead Springs, Versailles, KY.
This is a quote from page 60 of the Register of the State Historical Society, Vol. 19, No. 55 (January 1921). (notes in parentheses are mine).
"I am informed that the old homestead (of Susanna Hawkins Coleman - daughter of Thomas Coleman) is now the property of J.A. Eaton (our property is part of what was formerly the Eaton property based on late 1800's/early 1900's county maps). I am quite sure that the remains of William Strother, his wife, Anna Kavanaugh, Thomas Coleman, and his wife Susanna, and perhaps a number of descendants were buried on the Eaton farm."
According to our neighbour, who has lived here since the land was divided, the foundations of the old home were on a creek bed about 100 yards from the cemetery. I have not had the opportunity to explore and see if I could find the foundation stones.
