Kinchen Harbart Cooley
Hi Linda, There are so many Cooley's with the same names and is really confusing. I wanted to share with you what I discovered. You wrote in the comment section on Kinchen Harbart Cooley's memorial about a Harbert Cooley in 8th Mississippi Infantry. I believe this is probably Harbart Cooley, who is the son of Nelson Cooley (who is son of Wm. C. Cooley). I found that Nelson's other son, John W. Cooley is also in this regiment.

The girl's did look like their momma !!
I looked back and saw that I had set you Madison's obit before, you might add to his memorial that his nick name was Matt. (He was 6 foot 5 inches tall) I can not find other sisters, Aunt Helen Ruth Monk, or Aunt Willow 'Dean' Goforth ( i found her first husband Amos C Moore but she isn't buried there but with the second husband Mack Bosarge) it is sad but happy that James has gone home to be with the Lord. In his last days he did not know us and my husband said he had lost his 'other' father. Stay well my friend. Bren

Thank you for posting the photo of Grover Cleveland McClain and wife Daisy.

I am a descendant of the McClain line, from GC's uncle Joseph Newton. See:
I was wondering the source of the image, and if permitted to copy/use (with acknowledgement) on Wikitree and my own family history writings? Finally, given your possession of the photo, do you know of TN McClain family contacts I could collaborative with?

Thanks in advance!

One more thing: Divorce Records for Etowah County, Alabama: Spouse: Ina B Dawsey; Gender: Female; Spouse: Aubrey L Dawsey; Gender: Male; Divorce Date: Feb 1950; County: Etowah. Perhaps that is why they are not buried in the same cemetery. I linked her husband, H.A. Whorton, to her memorial. They had six children. One daughter died two days ago and her obit was in today's newspaper. I grew up knowing this family. Mr. Whorton is buried in our local cemetery. Nancy

Thank you for adding the obituary!!!!! It showed Ina Bell was an Overton and her step-father was O.W. Bradley. That piece of information led me to Ina Bell's memorial. Thanks again, Nancy in AL

Agape Ghisalderti
I see you added this memorial to the St. Louis Cemetery #3. Could this last name actually be Ghisalberti. I've added other Ghisalberti's here and see cencus records ofr Agape with the Ghisalberti name instead of Ghisalderti.

RE: Floyd
You sound like me, when Floyd said he never know anything about his real father other than his mother cared enough to give him his last name, I didn't place much value in the final resting place.

We are but VERY distant cousins. If I can find out how to change ancestry back to the old version, I will tell you what he is to me to help figure out what we are to each other. I am related on the Goff side of the family.

Do you care if I use a few of your photos for my family tree on ancestry? So far, the only ones I was wanting to add is Chandler H Havens and Loria E Havens.

RE: John Q. Owens
Hi Linda,

Thanks for responding to my message - so we are distant cousins then! Yes, I think Stephen Owens was actually an older half-brother to John Quincy Owens. They were both sons of Nathaniel, but had different mothers. Off the top of my head, I can't think of Stephen's mother's name; however, I have it somewhere in my notes. There were two Owens' in the Civil War, 33rd Indiana Infantry - John Quincy and William H. Owens. I'm actually working on a website on the 33rd Indiana Infantry and hope to roll it out early fall. I wrote my M.A. thesis on the 33rd and hope to turn it into a book at some point. Unfortunately, the university keeps me distracted with less interesting projects :) I teach history for Indiana Wesleyan University. Would you happen to have any pictures of John Q. Owens, or know of another family member who does? Also, was his name simply John Quincy Owens or John Quincy Adams Owens? I've never seen the "Adams" part on any documents. In those days, it was common to name children after presidents and John Quincy Adams of course was a president. Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Linda,

Are you an Owens family descendant? If so, I am as well. I'm a descendant of Stephen Owens, who was John Q. Owens' brother. I'd like to compare notes if you're a relative :)

RE: Taylor family
I have been working the Woolmarket Taylor's for quite some time and my childhood friend contacted me to help him with them. His mother was a Taylor, Ancestor Serreno and Spencer Whitfield is their ancestor. If you need any research on them, I probably have a good bit.
Just ran across some papers on Serreno's wife, she was the sister of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Never know what I will find.
My computer was at the technicians last week, windows had crashed. I have a back up with carbonite, so I don't loose stuff.
I had been looking for Marianne Emerline Bell Taylor (wife of Spencer Whitfield Taylor) and I finally found her in Repton Methodist Church Cemetery, Repton, Connecuh County, Alabama. She had been married before to a Peterman and he died in the Civil War of Typhoid Fever and I found him buried in Warrenton Cemetery Warrenton, Fauquier County, Virginia, so if you are looking for him and her, that is where they are.
