RE: photo of Nancy Ann Sandidge Carr
You may have already tried this, but click on the photo to open it and make it larger. Click on that photo once, and it will enlarge again.

I am not certain, but fairly sure that Nancy, and all the original settlers' graves are among the small markers that you see in the photo. In the early days, they were too busy hacking out the wilderness, and perhaps did not have access to even the stones that you see here.

RE: photo of Nancy Ann Sandidge Carr
O.k., hit that request, again, so that someone can re-check for Nancy Ann. If need be, I will take down the photo that I posted.

I just re-checked, and I am actually descended from Gideon Winston Carr, Jr.'s brother, Thomas Dabney Carr, and his wife Nancy Sanders.

Thomas Dabney and Gideon Winston's mother is Susannah Meekins Sandridge. Is that a variation of Sandidge?

Thanks for your help, Claudia.

RE: photo of Nancy Ann Sandidge Carr
Thanks for the comment, Claudia. You may need to click on the photo. It opens up larger. Then I have to click on it again, to read it. The caption comes up, too.

I think that our ancestors Nancy Ann Sandidge and Gideon Winston Carr are actually buried under these markers. My older sister and I had just battled through some wilderness in the Welch Cemetery, and we were running out of steam at this point. I hope to be able to return to this area of Stuart Cemetery, and see if there are more inscriptions on these rough stones (I did find some inscriptions).

If you still cannot read this photo, I can email you this photo, but I realize it's not all that we would hope to be able to find about Nancy Ann.

Gideon Carr d 1844
The “Final Payment Voucher From the General Accounting Office,” posted in Fold 3, documents that Gideon Carr died on 21 Mar. 1844. That is the death date recorded in the DAR Genealogical Research Database for Gideon Carr, Ancestor A019585: born 5 Nov. 1752 Albemarle Co., VA; died 21 Mar. 1844, Dickson Co., TN.

As you noted, the death year shown on the gravestone, is erroneous. Please post the above in the bio section of the memorial for Gideon Carr, 29961097. I will submit an edit to alter the death date.

Thank you,

Brandy Wells Murray
Find A Grave Memorial# 28472164
Can you help me figure out one of my memorials that I am researching, and has me perplexed? I think that my memorial for Janie C. Forguson Calhoun could possibly be Janie Cunningham instead of her maiden name being Forguson. I think somehow I traced her back to the memorial in the subject line, but not sure.

Janie's memorial:
Find A Grave Memorial# 123842406

If you have any info I would be so appreciative.

Thank you!

RE: Your grandmother Marie
Marie died in Hammond Indiana and is buried in Calumet Park Cemetary in Merrillville Indiana. I can get you exact dates. Maries son and my uncle Richard (Curtis) is still living in Hammond IN. His brother Morris LeNeave is deceased and buried in the same cemetary as Marie. This website takes forever to move these emails. This is my email so it will be faster for you.

You were right about his birth date and I've updated it accordingly. Glad you caught it.
