Thanks any way.
|Diane Peterson||finding HOLTS|
I am looking for information about my g-g-grandfather William Martin Holt born @ 1844, either in Alabama or Mississippi. He married Araminta Jane Pounds In Perry County, Al. and had 2 children, William Martin Holt Jr. (1872-1930) and Adeline Holt Jordan (1869-1916).
I hope you can help me find more about him.

John Nicholas Whisenant, Jr. did not live in White County, GA, or Cherokee Co., GA and is not buried in a Shoal Creek Cemetery in either county. He died in Habersham County, and is buried in either present-day Habersham or Stephens County, GA.
|James Parker||RE: Photo of Tombstone|
The person (now deceased) that placed the photo of the stone with the initials, claimed this was the first tombstone and it was replaced by the upright one. He was very uninformed. The stone with the initials is a footstone. It was common practice to put both a headstone (tombstone) and a footstone, and some still do it. Therefore, the tombstone with the name and date of death is the original tombstone.

I responded to a request for a photograph of John Whisenant's (memorial 34935848) gravestone, but was unable to locate a grave at the Shoal Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. I then checked the county library - they have a book listing most burials in Cherokee County. The Whisenant's are not in the book. That is not a definitive answer, but I was wondering what was the source of you information that John was buried there?
|Deborah A Finkelstein||Holt Family|
Hey Robert. Since your last name is Holt and seem to be invested in helping people find ancestors, I hope you can help me find my Holt ancestors. They are: William H. Holt b.1866, he is the son of Kindrel L. Holt and Mary J. Hill, siblings were: Mary E, Samuel B.b. 1872, Sarah L., John R., Leroy E., and Icadoria. William H. Married M.E. Musgrow 10 Oct. 1895 in Franklin Co, AL. Kindrel and family lived in Marion and in Walker AL in 1870 and 1880 respectively. I'm trying to find William H. and M.Elizabeth Holt after 1899 to prove who their children were. I believe several of William's siblings lived in TX after 1900.
Any direction you can suggest will be greatly appreciated. Thank you,
Deborah Falls Finkelstein
|James Parker||RE: John Nicholas, Jr.|
Do you have firm documentation that John Nicholas Whisenant, Jr. is the son of John Nicholas Whisenant, Sr.? I know that he is, but I need the documentation for a supplemental application to the National Society Sons of the American Revolution. Any help would be appreciated.

|Amy Suzanne Martin||RE: Charles Allen Johnson|
Hi, thank you very much. I'm just trying to tease out (researching on Ancestry and Familysearch) information pertaining to Allen Johnson, of DeKalb, vs. Charles Johnson, of Davidson County. From what I can see these were two different men, yet a lot of public trees online have the one man "Charles Allen Johnson." I think they've been confused because both men were married to women named Nancy. A marriage record exists for Charles Johnson to Nancy Whitley, 1811 in Davidson County, but I haven't found a marriage record for Allen Johnson so I'm not sure what his wife's maiden name was. According to 1850 census, Allen Johnson's wife, Nancy, was born in Virginia about 1800. He married his second wife, Lacy ("Leaky") Adamson, in 1855. All the best, Amy
|Amy Suzanne Martin||Charles Allen Johnson|
Hi, I'm confused about the memorial page for Charles Allen Johnson. The age of ALLEN Johnson was 73 on the mortality schedule, and his place of birth was recorded as Georgia. There was a CHARLES Johnson in Davidson County, about the same age, born in South Carolina, but he lived beyond 1880. Various trees on Ancestry have Nancy Whitley married to Charles Johnson, some to Allen Johnson, and others to Charles Allen Johnson. Can you shed any light? My line goes back to Elijah W. Johnson, who I think may have been the son of Charles Johnson of Davidson Co. (he has an "Eli W." in his household in 1850). Many thanks, Amy firstname.lastname@example.org

I noticed you posted a photo of the marker for the Moore family members buried in this cemetery. I have a descendant of the family who would like to visit the cemetery...can you provide directions and/or the landowner's name so I can pass that along to her? Thank you!
