Do you know if or have any supportive evidence that Rachel had an older sister named Missouri? If the deductions I've made with the info. I have are correct, Rachel has an older sister MISSOURI who married a James Craig (possibly a brother or relative to William Craig) also in Marshall Co. Alabama. I am a direct descendant from James Craig and his first wife MISSOURI (who I assume died in childbirth) while living in Alabama before moving to Arkansas. My Craig family moved to Sebastian Co., AR. This Craig & Johnson family are road blocks for me going any farther back in this genealogical line! My mother was a Craig. If you have any more info on the Johnson or Craig lines, I'd certainly appreciate hearing from you!!

Milton Martin and Mary Marcum Martin
They are my great grandparents. George cox was not his farther and the lady you have listed as his mother was his sister who was married to George cox. Rumor has she had a son out of wedlock and names him Milton. Milton is a very popular name in this family line. Milton a d Mary's first grandchild was named Milton also

I am looking for information on mary marcum of possibly a picture

Thank you

RE: Bailey
No I don't have proof. Daniel's son was named William Henderson Bailey. That's a good indication they were somehow related. Here's where I got information on Daniel's wife.

You have to scroll down to the middle to a picture of Martha Watkins and Acton with their two sons and a baby carriage.

I am a descendant of Robert Bailey, Daniel's brother. Do you have any more info on Daniel? I have an ancestry dna match with someone that probably is related to the brother's side. There's generations missing though between them and her grandmother.

Solomon Massengale
I was pleased to find your recent addition of Solomon Massengale, Rev War Patriot to FindaGrave. He is my 4th great grandfather. Is there a photo of his headstone? I can see from your credentials that you are very involved in family history and appreciate your extensive service. I will put in a request for that photo.
My mother was a Southerner from Gadsden and attended Montevallo College for a year. Living in Colorado, I do not get back to Alabama as much as I would like. Again, thanks for all you do. I am hoping to find enough info, perhaps on Solomon to apply for DAR membership, having at least 4 relatives through whom I coumay be able to trace my connection to Revolutionary War Patriots. If you have suggestions let me know. I hope we of this generation can continue to preserve those freedoms these patriots so valiently fought for.

RE: Roebuck Farmily Cemetary
That is where I first saw them and now they are grown over and cannot locate and yes the other grave about a mile down the road we did see for the first time because I had not been told about that cemetery. Thanks for any information you can find. I would love to clean up the cemetery if I could find it again.

Roebuck Farmily Cemetary
I have been trying to locate the Roebuck Family Cemetery which you referenced in 143977803. Welch Roebuck had led me to them before he passed into eternity. I had made reference using telephone box, etc. but those must have been placed in other locations. The area is grown over and I was unable to locate them after searching for several days. It is located off US 82 in Maplesville, al. There is another grave I found at that time around the curve of the road on the other side. It was of Amanda A. Roebuck b. 9-20-1839 d. 12-11/1866 . I put a fence around this. I would like to find and restore these graves. Do you have any suggestions? These are my gggrandparents. Thanks.
