Darrel D LeSueur
RE: Great Grandparents
My great great grandfather and grandmother were John LeSueur (no middle name) and Caroline LeGresley LeSueur. They are from the Jersey Islands and converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon Church) and came to America 1855. They went by river boats and also horse and wagon across the United States, starting on the East Coast and ending up in Utah. John and Caroline's two sons John Taylor LeSueur and William Francis LeSueur (my great grandfather) moved their families to Arizona in 1879. I live her in Arizona along with many other LeSueurs. The LeSueur name is very well known here since William Francis LeSueur and John Taylor LeSueur helped settle the town here in Mesa, Arizona. The street in downtown Mesa that the Arizona Temple sits on is named LeSueur Street.

RE: LeSueur Family
That's great. Do you know who your great grandparents are?

John LeSueur
Thanks for the update. I also corrected the year of John's birth from 1913 to 1813 - apparently a typo from the original writer.
Stay well.

RE: Daniel Booth
The Booth connection is interesting. I will look at them some more. I have ordered the Michael Curtis Hunt Bible from LDS. I am hoping "Yubana" is actually Juliana (I call her Julia Ann). She is my great x3 grandmother. Hopefully the Bible copy is handwritten and not transcribed.
Also, have you run across the Simmons name? I suspect Michael Curtis Hunt was married to a Simmons, but maybe Mary Ann Dixon was a second/ first wife, or her maiden name is actually Simmons.

Thomas T. Harper
The Executor for Wilkins Harper Sr will, was Thomas T. Harper. Do you know who he was? He also was a bondsman for when Ann married John Harvey in Dec 1828. Wilkins (the son) wasn't able to serve. I don't have the actual will,but just a court document about the executor.

RE: Wilkins Harper, Sr.
Did Wilkins Jr. die that same year? I can't figure out how Ann Harper by Dec 1828 was married to John Harvey. I guess I'm asking how we can be so sure which Wilkins (Jr or Sr) married her?

Added by virginia on Apr 13, 2014 2:09 PM

Wilkins Harper, Sr.

RE: Curtis Hunt
I went to Hancock County a few weeks ago and got the will of John Hunt. He names his wife Rebekah and children, one of which was Michael C. Hunt, then later down the page, he calls him "Curtis".

Batt Wyche
Hi Carol
Batt Wyche was my 3x great grandfather through his daughter Nancy Christian Wyche who married Elias McElveen. I have found records online that indicate that he is buried in the McElveen Cemetery in Montgomery Co., GA and other records which state that he died in Decatur County, GA. I doubt that at the time of his death, he would have been taken to Montgomery Co. from Decatur Co. for burial. Nancy Christian Wyche McElveen did live in Decatur County, and I presume he could have been living with her when he died. Have you done any research since you posted his death on Find-a-Grave? I would appreciate any information you could give me on the family--especially grave locations. Annette Ford
My Geneology:

Curtis Hunt
Hi, I run across your memorials a lot when I am looking for my own family. I know we must be related, especially through the Boddie family. I am especially interested in Michael "Curtis" Hunt 76006506. I see you have listed names from a family Bible. Did you transcribe them yourself? The name "Yubana" is so odd and I am wondering if it is actually "Julia" or Julia Ann. I am sure Julia Ann Hunt was a sister of Rebekah Hunt. They married McKinney brothers. Could you please tell me where this Bible might be so that I could see the actual writing myself? Thanks so much!!
Please contact me at

Karen Thomas
Burton Cemetery & Williams Cemetery
Both of these cemeteries should be on the Montpelier estate. Do you know if there are 2 separate cemeteries there? Robt Burton gained ownershhip of Montpelier thru his wife Agatha Williams, whose father Judge John Williams received it as a wedding gift from his father John Williams [b 1704]. Am thinking these two cemetery listings should be one?? I know that some of the earlier Williams' were buried at Montpelier. Can you help me out on this??? Thanks, Karen Thomas

Hey I'm trying to fill a photo request for this cemetery, but there isn't a map link. If you could give me directions or something that'd be awesome. Once I get there, I can add the GPS so that it shows up on a map. Its in Troup Co Ga, in the Long Cane area. Thanks

RE: Maddox/Maddux
Yes those Maddox belong to me. My family owns that cemetery now I assume. All the land around it belonged to Samuel and Eleanor originally. Their children farmed it after their deaths. Eleanor left a will naming her children and left them parts of the estate. It puzzles me that she wouldn't have had a headstone. Samuel and Eleanor were originally from St. Mary's Massachusetts. My grandparents are buried there and all my family will be as well. My grandfather was the one that made the markers for the graves that had only one name. The odd thing is that there aren't very many Maddox buried there. My grandfather was James Anderson. His father was William Anderson whose mother was Sibba or Sylvia Maddox the daughter of Davis.

Hi! I happened to be looking at your photo requests and stumbled on your virtual cemetaries. I'm relatively new to find a grave and it amazes me as to what i've been able to find out. Especially when you find people that share the same relatives. I'm a direct descendent of Samuel Maddox who is Davis Maddox father. Samuel and Eleanor are rumored to be buried at Maddox cemetary although the graves must be unmarked. Finding records to say where they are buried at is on my to-do list. Are you on ancestry? Your user ID seems very familiar. I'd love to swap stories with you when you get a chance.

Suretta Blair
Benjamin F & Nancy Collier
Hi Carol,

Thank you for all you do for findagrave & its members. You are doing a great service for so many.

I have been doing research on the Benjamin F. Collier family the last four years. According to my research, I am the great, great granddaughter of Benjamin F & Nancy Collier & the great granddaughter of one of their children, Martha L Collier. In 1859 Martha married John B. Jones. Martha was the mother of my grandmother, Mary Speed Jones.

On the 1850 United States Federal Census Benjamin F, Nancy & their family are listed as living in Coosa County, Alabama, Family #581. They are shown as having 6 boys and 2 girls (one of which was Martha). Therefore, I would appreciate it if those children could be listed on their findagrave website.

Thank you so very much!

Benjamin Harris (1732-1812)
I received your request to add Benjamin's father (link) and it is done. DAR documents say Benjamin was born and died in Greensville County, Virginia. Both Greensville and Southampton Counties were established after he was born.

I've put Greensville County in as his birth and death place.

Since you have a personal interest in the Harris line, if you wish, I will transfer Benjamin Harris, Absalom Harris and Joseph Jeter to you for management.

I have lost your email address so I had to resort to this venue.
