RE: Sippy Oakes
I was out there today with my husband and two of our grandchildren and we couldn't find it. That is why I was asking if you might remember.
I am gonna go and look again and take me something to cut the grass up off of some of the Oakes family graves.
Thanks for having it posted I remembered seeing it but not being able to go back and find.
I am married into the Oakes family.
Thanks Teresa

Hey Connie I was wondering if you can give me a direction of where Sippie Oakes grave is located in the cemetary at Ramah? Thanks and God Bless.

RE: Frances Lee Correction
Perhaps you should do it. As I said, the system didn't recognize her name to find her. Somehow my son looked her up and pointed out the death error.. It is perfectly understandable. The inscription was hard to read. Sylvia

Frances Lee Correction
Connie, Please correct the death date for my mother, Frances Tidmore the Oak Hill Cemetery, Union Springs, Alabama.
She died in 1992, not 1932.
Please also include her full name - Frances Tidmore Sumner Lee.
I tried to log in to correct it, but the system said she did not exist!!
Many Thanks - Sylvia Sumner lee Thorp

RE: Smilie Cemetery
Connie, I am in Troy much less since I retired. Anyone can contact me via email at: or by cell phone: 334-372-3044. I am in Eufaula much of the time. There are many people buried at Smilie Cemetery. The cemetery is roughly a acre in size. Ruth McPherson Brown transcribed the cemetery in 1954 and 1968. Most of the gravestones were gone by 1954.

RE: Smilie Cemetery
The cemetery has many more than 5 people buried in it. They are only 5 tombstones standing currently. Deed records from over the years excluded the sale of the cemetery(1 acre more or less). It is my understanding that cemeteries can't be bought or sold by law and that is why the old deeds excluded the one acre cemetery. I have many Thompson and Smilie kin buried there. There are Silers buried there as well along with others. I have also been told there were slaves buried in the cemetery or nearby.

RE: Smilie Cemetery
It has been a while since I have visited the page. My email is and my cell is 334-372-3044. I am not in Troy that often since my wife has been sick but you can reach me at the above contacts. Also, I have found info online that Elizabeth's fathers name was Jesse Allen. The info I have handed down lists West Allen as her father. Online info also has Captain Allen Thompson of Jones County Georgia dying in 1814. I can seem to contact the person who posted it as it was back around 2000. Elizabeth and Captain Allen Thompson are my GGG grandparents. I am through their son Francis Marion Thompson. Records also indicate the Col. Robert Smilie and Elizabeth married on July 2nd, 1815 after the death of her first husband Allen Thompson.

James Jackson Davis
Thanks so much Connie. I am currently working on our family history and we have an Annie Kate Dukes married to James J. Davis who died around this time and I am trying to determine if this is indeed the James Jackson Davis buried here.
Would really appreciate knowing if you find anything on him that would relate to Annie Kate Dukes.
Thanks again!

Connie, are you related to James J. Davis? I am trying to determine who his wife was and was wondering if there was any way you could help identify who she was. Is this cemetery still in operation? If so, would you have a contact phone number for them? Thanks for any help you can offer.
