Location of Bowie Cemetery
Could you please tell the location of the 3 grave cemetery you call the Rezin Bowie Plantation Cemetery, Avoyelles Parish?? I am descended from Stephen Bowie and Mary Ann Compton and their daughter Mary Ann Bowie who was married to Charles Sydnor Leckie. He was the Sheriff of Rapides Parish but died on a trip to New Orleans. Think he is buried there.
Thank you so much for posting this little family graveyard!! Love it. I have visited the site along the Bayou Boeuf where their home was and would love to see the gravesite. Appreciate any help you can give me. Ginger Seale 318-773-7232 or ginseale@gmail.com

Sarah Jones Lincoln
Hello J. B. Williams,

I think I will retain management of Sarah Jones Lincoln's memorial page for now. There are a number of comments from other contributors on the memorial page and I am concerned they might get deleted. Although the dates vary from one contributor to the next, I'm not sure which to use and I'm going to guess no one knows for sure, either. I will be happy to add your comments to the list.

Solid, confirmed data will go a long way to help me "clean up" Sarah Jones Lincoln's memorial page. I encourage everyone to contribute to the cause.

Keep diggin'
Pam

Hello,

I saw that you posted on someone else's page (Pat Berel) that you have family Bibles and written histories of the Lewis, Lewing, Eason, and Eddins families.

I would be so insanely grateful if I could get copies of that information.

I am the great-granddaughter of Dora Eason and Dolph Lewis.

I am specifically hoping that you might have information about twins that were born to Dolph and Dora. Their names are Melba and Evelyn.

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,
Mary Pettit

William Eddins
Could you please share with me where you received this information? I am wondering if he could be the father of Nehemiah (b. 1895) and Obedience Eddins who are buried at Pine Grove Baptist Church in Chesterfield County, SC? According to a census I viewed, Nehemiah was born in North Carolina. Where is the plantation located in South Carolina?

Peggy Buescher
Henry Williams
My name is Peggy Buescher and I am trying to connect one William W. Williams who listed his birth as Pickens Co., Ala 1828. When I look at the 1830 census there was a Henry Williams and one William Williams (some say was William Samuel Williams the father of my William W Williams). William Samuel Williams married Martha Mary Penny Williams whom later went and died in Cherokee County, Ala.I assume that William Samuel died because he was not with Martha Penny Williams in Cherokee County, Ala. My William Williams married Mary Ann Hesterly somewhere in Ala and they moved and lived in Floyd County, Ga which boarders Cherokee County, Ala. Can you tell me about Henry, did he have a son named William Samuel? My family tree is the Duke Tree which is out in ancestry. I would appreciate any help at all for I do not know what to do now.

Mary Stockstill
Good Evening!

I am sorry for just now getting back on the computer as work demands and gardening have taken me away from genealogy for about a month. I've transferred Mary Lavinia Knight-Stockstill over to you as I'm sure you can make your appropriate connections.

I really wish you can get in contact with my cousin, Steve Gordon. He is through John Warner line while I am through Joshua, the younger. Steve's mother and my dad are siblings but connect through his dad and my mother. Small world.

Steve has numerous letters from the late 1800's that were written to/by his uncle Lit (a.k.a. "Little" Stockstill).

I wish you the best in your connections and work as well. Hopefully, I will have my own Stockstill line fully connected soon with tombstone pics. Please, let me know if I can assist with anything else on this end (Hancock/Pearl River Counties).

I actually just got back from a weeklong trip to Vinton/Leesville/Sugartown/Oakdale/Gardner, LA areas getting documents and tombstone pics I miss on my previous three trips before so I know how difficult it can be getting to other places of research.

Best Wishes

Kevin

RE: Collins Family
William Thomas Collins and John Marion Miles are brothers. I think they moved to Corsicana, TX together around 1880. I have some questions to ask. I like to do research. I have come up with 6 children for Martha Elizabeth Collins. The oldest is John Alfred Brown (1874 - 1963. I would like to communicate via email, if that is OK with you.
Mine is kcloan@yahoo.com

Please email me. I would like to have a conversation on James M. Collins and Mourning Hollie Fiveash. I have a lot of information on the family. I have search hard for information in Natchitoches Parish for them. I know where the farm was that was sold to support the children. One of the children is my Great Grandfather John Marion Miles Collins. Please email me at kcloan@yahoo.com Thanks, Kyle Collins

RE: landrum
I have many Landrums in my database on Ancestry. Diboll, Texas, where many of Elizabeth's children ended up, is located maybe 10-12 miles south of Harmony, where Elizabeth and Elijah ended up. I took several pictures at the Brister Cemetery while there and will upload them soon. There are several others on the this website. There are many Pitts and a smattering of Landrums in the Harmony area cemeteries including Harmony, Zavala and Gravel Ridge. Elizabeth's and Linson's daughter Isabel, who married Phillip Vincent West, is my connection to them on my grandmother's Holliman/West side of the family.

Linson B Landrum
Linson B and Elizabeth Pitts Landrum were my 3rd great grandparents. Elizabeth married my 2nd great grandfather Elijah Shoemake in Angelina County Texas in 1882. She died in the Harmony community, Nacogdoches County, Texas in April 1885. I recently made a trip to Harmony and visited the Brister Cemetery with several of Elizabeth's Pitts descendants. The cemetery is totally overgrown with many headstones dragged into the woods and many others broken or buried. I created memorial 129924775 for Elizabeth based on nothing more than assumption. Family records indicate that her son Ransom M Shoemake was buried in this cemetery in 1894. The cemetery is located about a mile from the old Shoemake homeplace. If you would like to link her Landrum children to this memorial please do so. Chuck

RE: parker
I found no son of Lafayette Parker (son of James B Parker) in my research to date. Though I admit he may have been missed. But my George Parker is not the son of your Lafayette, son of James B Parker. Related yes, but different lineage of same family of John Thomas Parker.

RE: parker
This George Parker was in fact the son of Lafiette Parker (aka Lafayette Parker) however my Lafiette Parkers father was John Thomas Parker and mother was named Isabella.
James B Parker and that you mention was the brother to my Lafiette Parker.
Lafiette (aka Lafayette) Parker was my Great Great Grandfather on my Mother side. Making George "Baldy" Parker my Great Grandfather.

Richardson Family
Hello, my name is John and my Richarson line is

Father: John William Richardson who married Beverly Ann Behrend

Grandfather: John Bernon Richardson who married Ruby Ebarb

Great Grandparents: James Pinkney Richardson who married Donnie Belle Walter

X2 Grandparents: John B (Tobe) Richardson who married Larrah Octavine (Ollie) Lewing

I have bits and pieces, some documents and many photos of my Richardson line and always on the lookout for more. I saw you mentioned a Richardson Bible and of course that got my interest. I am also looking to connect with more family along the way and maybe get more pictures and documents.
I am curious, I know that John B (Tobe) Richardson's parents show as John H. Richardson and Katherine on a census. I have also seen where it is said John B. (Tobe) Richardson's parents are John Harrison Richardson and Kathrine Burnett. Was hoping for some help on confirming this bridge. Thanks and nice to meet more cousins. John B. Richardson

Juliet Morgan
Palmer
Hello,

I'm trying to find out more information about the John Palmer and Mary Cuhusac family of South Carolina. I believe you manage their memorials in the Gravel Hill Plantation Cemetery there.

I think they are my 5th great grandparents. I believe their youngest son, Zemeriah Palmer, was my 4th great grandfather and, his son, Jacob Jabez Palmer, was my 3rd great grandfather. From Jacob, I'm very certain that my gr-gr-grandmother was Eron Belle Palmer, daughter of Jacob's second wife, Amanda Burroughs. There were two children born of this marriage: Eron Belle and Moorman Terrill Palmer.

Eron Belle Palmer married Gideon Elbert Wiginton in Bexar County, Alabama in 1892. Together they moved to Hill County Texas shortly after their marriage. In fact, Gideon may have already set up residency in Texas as that is what their marriage record in our family bible states.

Gideon and Eron moved to Wharton County, Texas in the late 1890s where Gideon was the first postmaster of Hahn, Texas. It was there my great-grandmother Ella Maude Wiginton was born and married my great-grandfather Jesse Prichard Henderson.

I'm trying to get more information about the Palmer branch of my family tree and was hoping you could help me. My email is julietcmorgan@gmail.com, if you'd like to email me instead.

Thanks in advance,
Juliet Morgan

James Henry Landrum
You should by now have received a message from Find A Grave that I transferred this memorial to you. One of his daughters, Leah Nancy Landrum, married my 1st cousin 2x removed, Frank Dobbins Sewell. That is why I had management of this transferred to me a while back. Being an uncle to you would make him a closer relative of yours that he was to me. I know you will add to this site and make it a fitting memorial to James.
