RE: Memorial #61389130 for Maud B. (Bowen) Crawford
I did have Essie listed as a sister; I just didn't have her married name, but I have now added it.

Also, DONAL is the way the name is spelled on the tombstone. Go to his memorial and look at the photo of his stone. Don't know if it was a mistake or if his name was really Donal. I had his name spelled Donal like his stone, at the top of his memorial, but when I transferred it to someone else, they must have changed it.

Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. I have deleted my memorial and asked the owner of the other to add the article there.

RE: Fountain Baker Sampson
Ok, thanks for the reply.

I was reading last night that some of the Baker & Sampson families that migrated to the NE part of Missouri were from Kentucky. I'll explore that further.

Thanks again,

Fountain Baker Sampson
Hi Farm Girl,

First of all, love your ID!

I noticed you have quite a lot on the Sampson family of Fountain Baker Sampson, Find A Grave Memorial# 50409665 & if you are related, wondered if you have any thoughts on who his parents might be.

I was recently contacted by a descendant who thinks it might be Jesse & Elizabeth Tune Sampson, Virginia natives who moved to Smith County, Tennessee.

I'm coming up with no original source documents that show this relationship, so reaching out now to others who have listed him at different sites.

Thanks so much,
Gloria J. Tune

William Marshall
Just one little note more, since he is Mary, Martha, Sarah (and Mildred too)'s father that means His parents are their grandparents instead of parents. His spouse/their mother was Elizabeth Williams. If you would like to take a look at them or others in my tree, you can find them easily as my contributor name "Lilly B" is the start of almost all my trees on ie "Lilly B's BENNETT Family Tree" (my paternal side) "Lilly B's Wells and Goodwin Family Tree" (maternal side) and finally "Lilly B's My Whole Family Tree with a few extras thrown in for good measure" It is the merge of both the others and as it says a few "extras" If you would like an invitation to any of them you can send me an email at I maintain and contribute to a few memorial pages here on too.

Mary Marshall and sister Martha Marshall
Mary Marshall married John Estes and her sister Martha married Michael Yates and they had an older sister Sarah Marshall b:1721 and she married Col. Richard Durrett (as his 3rd wife and was mother of all his younger set of children rather than Sarah Hampton who was only married to him briefly (they married in 1742 and Sarah Marshall married him in 1743) because they were both Sarahs in most family trees people only put in Sarah Hampton (who was b: 1724-25 while Rchd Durrett was b: in 1705. He was wealthy (at least he had a lot of land in various parts of VA by the time he died so he left his sons separate 'estates' when he died. Sarah Marshall was the oldest sister and their father was William Marshall b: 1685 (the one you have linked to Mary as her sibling (she was b: in 1726 not 1736 just a few yrs younger than Sarah and Martha was b:1725. These Mashall, Estes, and Yates (Martha married M Yates) both of them as well as Sarah Marshall each named one of their sons William Marshall 'Durrett', Estes, and Yates (other sons just Marshall and so on) and the names were passed on to later generations in these families. I can see a sibling being even twenty years older, but not 40 yrs as with William Marshall 1685 and Martha and Mary (Sarah too) at 1725 etc. I Just happened to notice this and who you had as her parents etc as I was attaching her memorial pg. I believe that it was Sarah Hampton who in 1749 married my Bennett ancestor Rice Bennett in Cumberland Co, VA. Its all these family connections that re-enforce and for me prove she is the most likely 'Sarah' as she had family there and later records support it. I think she and/or her parents learned Rchd Durrett's true age (or perhaps other facts about him they didn't like and the marriage was either annulled or a quick divorce. Usually if there's an annullment the marriage record is destroyed, so its most likely a divorce. That would have been a huge shame to a young bride. So she went to live with relatives (in this case in Cumberland Co, VA) If she had died, she would not have been confused with Sarah Marshall whom he married within a year or less. He had connections and business dealings with her father William Marshall (land records show this) in Caroline Co, VA and he owned lands there also as well as several other places in VA. The best known or connected to him are the lands his son Richard Durrett Jr inherited in Albemarle Co, VA. I only mention and explain about this Durrett marriages as that is the round about way that I realized that the wives of both my Estes and Yates branches and Col. Rchd Durrett's correct wife (and mother of his younger children, he had several from an earlier marriage) Sarah Marshall were all sisters. That also means that Marshall Estes and his wife Martha Yates were 1st cousins. The Estes and Yates were my ancestors through my paternal grandmother Pearl S Jones Bennett. Her maternal grandmother was Louisa Estes nee Harbour the daughter of George Yates Estes. Lilly B

There is no way to remove photo from frame without destroying photo. I will attempt better photo today. There are other photos I am doing the same with. I am at my mother in law's home. The photos are hers. If I can not please myself with how the new photos turn out I may wish to email it to you if that would be ok. I will do my best.

Wondering if his wife Connie Van Vacter is buried by him. If so, she needs to be put in Find A Grave.

RE: Shiloh Cemetery
I transferred all Shiloh memorials to you that I had. If you decide you don't want some of them, you can send them back my way. It doesn't matter to me.

It has been raining every day here for weeks. Fortunately, my husband and I live on a hill and do not suffer from flooding. My heart goes out to all those that have been impacted. Part of the problem is that cities and counties allow people to build homes in dangerous areas.

I have about six more memorials in Shiloh Cemetery that I manage. You can have them if you want them. I have no connection to the people, and, as you know, I don't live in Macon County either.

They have the Tozier Cemetery index as well as other cemetery indexes at the Macon Library. They may have other info that would be of interest to you?
