MICHEAL DICKSON JR and his 2nd wife
I see that you have a different 2nd wife for your Micheal Dickson Jr. In Micheals will he names his 2nd wife as M Dickson and he names the slaves "Hannah and Jude" that were given to her by her father ...that was William Watkins and he gave Hannah and Jude to his daughter Martha "Patsey" Watkins in his will. Martha Watkins was first married to Abraham Womack and when he died she married Michael Dickson Jr.
Notice on Micheal's will all of the "Womacks" .

You can find Micheal's Will on the internet.

Rev William Harrison Norton
I am trying to locate some descendants of the Rev William Harrison Norton that is buried in Oaklawn Cemetery, Fort Valley Georgia.
The last one I could find was William Edwards Norton that died in 1966 and buried in the same Cemetery.
Do you have any advice for finding out if there are any surviving Norton relatives?

The Rev William H Norton had a brother (John Wesley Norton) who died a few years after his son (John William Norton) was born. John William ended up moving to Shreveport Louisiana, and I am one of his descendants.

We are trying to connect with that side of the family and ideally find out more information about the Rev. Father (John Norton) as we can not trace back our family any further.
Any help would be appreciated!

RE: Mary Bailey dtr of Jesse Bailey m Joseph Prince
Mary Bailey & Joseph Prince are my third great grandparents through their son Jesse Prince > Zelphia Eulala Prince>Sophie Lillian McDaniel m. my grandfather, Walter William Reese - all of Edgefield, SC. Records have been elusive on Joseph and Mary and I just need proof to tie Mary to Jesse Bailey - tho it seems probable, I am am just looking for positive proof. Thought you might be able to help me.
I certainly appreciate that you add research info to the memorials and I'm not questioning you - it is very much appreciated. Just looking for that elusive nugget of proof. Thanks for your time.

Mary Bailey dtr of Jesse Bailey m Joseph Prince
Hi Carol, first I'd like to thank you for your most valuable contributions. My question regards Mary Bailey who married Joseph Prince (my 3rd Great Grandparents) listed as daughter of Jesse Bailey b.1764. May I ask your source? I have been searching for proof of Mary's father for quite awhile - whether Jesse or John Bailey. Thank you for your
Chastain info - very enlightening. Would appreciate anything you might share about Jesse Bailey and other children not mentioned in his will.

Please check the dates for the father. I just received an email from someone questioning this relationship because of the dates. He also asked me for proof. Do you have validation?

Let me know what the dates are and I will correct. If not, I will remove.

Thanks Carol

William Odell Worsham 45539902
You made this memorial for my gggrandfather in 2009 (and kindly transferred it to me several years ago).

I have always wondered how you knew his name, how you knew where he was buried, his dates. There are no burial records for that cemetery, and we were lucky to find a distant cousin who knew where he was buried. His stone has been gone for decades, so you didn't see a stone in the cemetery.
Could you please tell me how you came to enter his memorial? Are you somehow related and have access to records? The only record I know of that has his dates of birth and death is his wife's family bible and I know who has that.

This has been a mystery to me for years and I hope you will tell me.

Pierre Chastain
I am in town doing some research and thought I'd visit Pierre Chastain's memorial. Unfortunately I could not find the memorial. I parked at Manakin Episcopal Church and walked the grounds as well as the old church ground and couldn't spot it. Could you possible give directions from the church to the memorial?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Lorrie Burns
Parham Cemetery Stoney Creek
Hi. Can you tell me where this cemetery is located? I've never heard of it. There is a Parham Family Cemetery in Sussex County. I have the transcriptions that were don in 1934 by the WPA. All the people buried there are part of William Parham and his wife Mary Comar Parham's family.

Also, did you do these transcriptions or did they come from someone else?

Thank you in advance for your reply.

I'd requested photos of their gravestones but the volunteers response was, "I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave. Could not find a Mills." So curious as to the source of the memorial's info. I'm thinking there was a written record that was transcribed. Might you too reply to
