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!

John Q. Owens
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.

Carter Cemetery
You weren't kidding about the We left home at 4am and got there just in time for the 9:30am church service at Salem. We met someone at the church who has a key to the cemetery. He drove us there from the church and let us in. Afterwards he took us to where Samuel Davis' house used to be. It was a completely awesome experience.

This weekend I'm driving 5 hours to visit my 5th great grandfather Samuel Davis in Carter Cemetery. Is it on private property? Do I need permission from someone first? I tried calling and emailing the Salem church but don't get a response. Thank you for your help.-Jenny

Delphine Stevens Stevenson
Hello Linda,
I learned where Delphine is buried. She is at Reeds Chapel Cemetery in McIntosh Alabama in an unmarked grave. Family members are going try and get the marker number possibly.

I want to also mention that i don't believe Delphine went to McIntosh Alabama to be with her brother Charlie Stevenson in yhe 1950s . Charlie Stevenson passed in 1943 it may have been that she went the sane time Charlie went there sometime in the1890s or shortly after.

I know that Delphine lived off of Luella road across the street from her Niece Luella Stevenson Snow and next door to Mariah Stevenson ( Aunt Sis ) her other Niece. Delphine lived there until her death. I have seen both house that are right next to each other. They are shacks now with trees and vegetation growing in and around them.

Have you had any luck tracking down James ( Jim ) Stevenson?

Talk with you soon.

Thank you for researching Richard (Dicky) Booker. I am surprised he didn't have a head stone, as his parents (my great grandfather), would have had the money to purchase one...who knows.
Thanks for your efforts.

RE: Susan Goff Davis in Biloxi Cemetery
Thank you I will ask her. I visited Biloxi cemetery a couple of years ago before I knew Susan Davis was there. I was in town for a concert and saw the cemetery off the road on the beach and stopped. It had been heavily damaged by hurricane Katrina lots of graves and remains washed away. It was very sad to see I hope her marker is still there.

RE: Dell Stevens
Wow Linda,
That kinda makes us kin by marriage. Pleasure to meet you. I have come across so many family stories, but i can say this not all where true. However, all that what my Grandma Gladys Stevenson had told me has turned out to be true and in some cases mostly true with a slight variance.

We think James Stevenson my G G Grandpa was at the Alabama fort in 1863. Not sure if it was him or not. I would love to know all about GFS Grandma Sarah Havens Stevenson. I have traveled far back in time on the Weaver / Reed side of my family that is MOWA Choctaw from Alabama. That side is relatively easy compared to the Stevenson side past Great Grandpa Charlie Stevenson. I really appreciate meeting you and anither family members.
