RE: Nannie Whetsel Grave
Hello,
Thanks for offering to photograph Nannie Whetsel's grave. The problem with the existing photo is the guy doesn't want it uploaded to any other site without permission and he is inactive with no way to contact him. I would like a photo I can freely upload to our Ancestry.com tree, I always credit the photographer.
Thank You Very Much,
James

RE: William Mitchell Clay
This is the correct WM Clay who had the relationship with Malinda. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=80648939t

Also, please check out the link to his wife, Rebecca Cecil. I'm sure this has some impact on William's personality. His family was affluent, not super-rich, but well-connected. His wife was from bigger money and connections. The Cecils in England had titles and positions, and Rebecca didn't let her own children forget this, and that they really WERE better than other people. OK, I enjoy the history, but I don't share the opinion, just because that line includes Lord Baltimore. :)

P.S., also to Bev's post under mine...WMC did not marry Malinda. He stayed with his wife till death parted them. Malida's children all remained Diamonds. I'd love to see the book to learn about her. Is it available now? She had such a pretty name...did it reflect her personality? The writer probably couldn't find more info because a lot of people are just stupid about not sharing stories they think are somehow "shameful." I like know what people really did, and how they really lived. If you'd like to read a really honest book about some Clay family members, it's Kentucky Clay, written by a college professor who is not shy about some of these amazing people. She is descended to WMC and Rebeccal through their youngest daughter, Kezia, who must have had somethink like Bipolar Dis. She didn't leave her room for a year, and one turn followed her husband to a visit with his mistress. She promptly set that house afire while they were still in it. She liked to remind people she was Cecil. I am descended from WMC's oldest child who was a true gentlewoman and did not bother to remind everyone she had noble roots. I can see why WMC might have needed some time away from the wife and kids.

My grandfather's sister married one of my grandmother's cousins (I forget how many removes or if he was 2nd, just def. not first) who was descended from WMC's sister Patience Chapman Clay, nothing unusual or problematic in that family except that my aunt & uncle were beautifully kind folks I loved to visit, and he lived into his upper 90s, always enjoying farmwork with his mules. I have a lot of Clays in my extended pedigree from Laurence, Boyd, and nearby.

Finally, I made this memorial and would be honored if anyone who has already made them for the Diamond children would ad him as father in the family links. Since there's not an easy way to link him to her bio, I'll add a note in his...tastefully, of course. :)

JanisCJ, part Cecil ;)

RE: William Mitchell Clay
Yes, indeed, it is true. Laurence Co., KY, had little involvement. The lady involved, Melinda Diamond, had children that were probably all with Grandpa Clay, and it is definitely this William. Melinda lived in Virginia, and the Clays lived in an adjacent county, Giles. A court record from 1806 fined WMC for the care of two Diamond children. These are, by default, her first two children. Her last was born before the Clays moved to Laurence Co, KY, which is the right time frame for all the children to be with WMC. The records I've seen don't show Malinda moving out of Giles. The only Malinda Diamonds in Laurence are too young to be mom Malida, though they could be a daughter or cousin. My autosomal DNA in two different programs has matches through WMC to the Diamond descendents, plus matches to WMC's ancestors. We don't share any other DNA from my pedigree.

RE: Diamond Question for you.....
Thanks for correction of death date for John!
The "Malinda Diamond Pioneer Woman" book by Lennie Carter tells a little about William Clay. It seems to be a mystery. Sounds like they were never married. He was ordered to pay the County of Giles towards maintaining two bastard children begotten of the body of Malinda Diamond. Do not know the names of children.

RE: Cemetery Question
Liberty United Methodist and Avondale are two different churches/cemeteries. They are about 4 miles apart. I have visited Liberty many, many times and the photos of the markers and the memorials for those persons that I posted are located at Liberty. The markers that I took pictures of for memorials that were posted on the Liberty site by someone else are also located at Liberty. If there is someone that is listed at both locations, I don't have a answer to that at this time. If you use the same site you sent me and change avon to Liberty you should have a listing that was recorded many years ago and the number of interments at that time are far less that now. Hope this helps. Mike

Sabrina,

I am not related to Mattie Lafferty Tidwell, but have been interested in the Lafferty family and their relationship with the Whitesides and other families, including my Wyatts, here in Grainger County. Are you related?

Drake Cemetey
Sabrina, I saw where you found that the Drake Cemetery is on private property. I also went by there last year and saw a sigh that said beware of dog. I live in Southwest Florida and did not have the time to mess with a dog. I will be there sometime this summer and intend to try contacting the owner and take pictures of every stone I can find in one trip. Do you know who the property owner is and have you tried to make contact with the property owner? I think that if I had their name and phone # I could make arrangements to take the pictures. Tom

RE: William L. Fields Grave
I am sorry I cannot be of any help to you on William L. Fields memorial, several different people helped me transcribe the information and some was not as accurate as I would have liked. If you want me to I will delete him and you can visit the cemetery and check the info yourself. I did not take a photo of the grave site there have no clue who his spouse is. I don't live in Cedartown therefore seldom go there to visit anymore as I am over 70 years old. I will transfer him to you, delete him, or whatever you want.

Sorry about that. I changed it to the right person. I searched the whole cemetery for his son's grave and could not find him.

Ruth Smith
Mrs. Burnham
Hello - I noticed your message on the memorial page for Mrs. Burnham at Poplar Springs Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery memorial #57707187 wising we knew her first name. I believe I have it and am related to the Burnham family. her name was:
Minerva Ann Chappell Burnham - Born: June 10, 1822 and died Feb. 5, 1893. She was married to William Burnham - B. 1821 in Georgia and died (I think during the Civil War) 16 April 1862 and is buried at the New Bern National Cemetery which is for veterans and is located in New Bern, N.C He served in the US army during the Civil War.
I will send an edit to the lady who put her memorial page on if that is o.k. with you.
Thank you for all the work you do on this web site and I agree with your philosophy about using the pictures I take. They are there to help others. Ruth

Elizabeth Grogan gravesite
Dear Sabrina, I am very new to finding relatives. I am looking for my great grandmother's grave which is in Poplar Springs Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Carroll County, Georgia. I hope to pay a visit possibly next week. I need directions on how to find her grave. I am also trying to find her first husband William Dearing who died sometime between 1864-1870. Any suggestions or help would be deeply appreciated. Thanks, Shelia Waskey@ yahoo.com

RE: Joyce Massey
JAMES WALTER MASSEY 1886-1968 WAS THE S/O MARY MALRY WHITE AND WILLIAM MONROE MASSEY. HER FATHER WAS CORNELIUS "NEIL" WHITE AND MOTHER SARA AGNES POE. ONE OF HIS BROTHERS WAS AMERICUS "MACK" WHITE. HE WAS MY GREAT GRANDFATHER. THE ONLY THING I HAVE IN MY BOOK ON THE WHITE'S IS JAMES WALTER MASSEY MARRIED LORENA H. THEIR CHILDREN WERE ARLIN EASTERWOOD MASSEY, ARTHUR MASSEY, EVERETT MASSEY AND JOYCE. JOYCE HAD 1 DAUGHTER BRENDA M. MASSEY. SHE MARRIED TOM MCCARTY. I HAVEN'T DONE ANY RESEARCH ON THE WHITES IN A LONG TIME. ESPECIALLY NOT IN THE LATER GENERATIONS. YOU CAN GO ON FIND A GRAVE AND TRACE THE WHITES. YOU CAN START WITH MY MOTHER NANCY LUCILE THOMPSON BOLLEN, HER MOTHER LILLIE WHITE THOMPSON, HER FATHER AMERICUS WHITE. MY MOTHER AND MY GRANDMOTHER ARE BURIED IN THE BREMEN CITY CEMETERY, HARALSON CO. GA. MY GREAT GRANDFATHER IS BURIED AT MT CARMEL IN CARROLL CO. GA. NEAR TEMPLE. THIS IS NOT A CHURCH CEMETERY. IT WAS ORIGINALLY THE WHITE FAMILY CEMETERY. THE FIRST BURIED THERE WERE ROBERT AND SARAH MANERY BRADBERRY. THEY WERE MY THIRD GREAT GRANDPARENTS, THEIR DAUGHTER MARY ANN MARRIED ABDA WHITE. THEY WERE THE PARENTS OF 12 CHILDREN. NEIL AND MACK BEING TWO OF THEM. THIS WAY YOUR FRIEND CAN TRACE HER WHITE ANCESTORS ALL THE WAY BACK TO MY 4TH GREAT GRANDFATHER ANDERSON WHITE. HOPE THIS HAS BEEN OF SOME HELP.

Leah Hall photo reorder
No problem. Should have caught that when the request link was sent, but didn't. I like to have the personal photos at the top, too.

My husband has some Hall relatives in his tree, but they are mostly up in Wood county.
