John Martin Brickey & John William Brickey
Hi Sabrina,

I think there are two children w/ the first name of John. In the 1880 census, there was John W age 2 and he is William in the 1900. In the 1900 census w/ Parish Brickey, there was another son John M. and he was Martin in 1910 census.

It does get confusing!! I know a family where every male had the first name of John and they were all called by their middle name.

You're right, genealogy can make you crazy!!

Any other questions, let me know.

L Munroe Grave 6655
Andersonville National Cemetery

Grave 6655 holds the remains of Andersonville prisoner PVT James Brown 4th New York Cavalry.

There are just two Munroe prisoners buried at Andersonville. James with the 4th Maryland Infantry and James with the 2nd Mass Cavalry. I have photographed all of the 14000 Union graves at Andersonville and have them on disk , I also have a copy of the Andersonville NTL Historic Sites databases. Also checked Monroe,, Same results.

RE: Nannie Whetsel Grave
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 tree, I always credit the photographer.
Thank You Very Much,

RE: William Mitchell Clay
This is the correct WM Clay who had the relationship with Malinda.

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

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.
