RE: Emmet Thigpen
Hello Connie,
Thanks for the offer, and for the history of the Thigpen memorials. Although I've lived in Alabama 61 years, all my ancestors are buried elsewhere.
I work a section of a cemetery similar to your method. I enjoy researching the history of the individuals and locating their relatives. I'm not interested in numbers so I spend more time per memorial.

Norman...

RE: Smilie Cemetery
There are only 5 markers left standing at the cemetery. There are many people buried there with no marker remaining. Information is hard to come by. It will take some time digging in the records at the court house. My home phone is 334-566-3044. My cell number is 334-372-3044 but that will change after I retire at the end of January. My email is thorn@dtroy.edu.

RE: Smilie Cemetery
The information I have could be incorrect. I obtained it from the late Kathlyn Johnson Folmar who obtained it from the late Ruth McPherson Brown who originally compiled it long ago. Many of the markers are gone at Smilie Cemetery. I plan to further research the Smilies when I retire in a few months. I am the GGG grandson of Elizabeth Allen Thompson Smilie by her first husband Allen Thompson. They came to Alabama from Jones County Georgia. Elizabeth's second husband was Col. Robert Smilie who is buried beside her in Smilie Cemetery.

RE: Smilie Cemetery
Hi again Connie..

Great to hear from you... Thanks for the update.. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help (especially genealogically) on the update. I am particularly interested in the descendants of Matthias Snider (Old Salem) Mary Ann Snider Thompson is one of his daughters.

I've been afflicted with this bug for over 30 years, but have decided to go back and redo my files for Matthias's family requiring some form of "proof" for anything added to the database. In the case of Find A Grave entries, I'm having a bit of a conflict. (I don't use the information found in the "blurb" unless it comes from the marker or an obit except in my notes as a "possible research avenue to pursue". Please let me know if you find any "concrete evidence" to help support the information given.

Oh.. I'm at the Super 8 in Troy tonight!!! planning to hit the library tomorrow..

RE: Email Sent
Yes, Connie. I did receive your emails and had no problem reading them. Haven't spent much time on the "Senn" line in the last few weeks, but need to get back to it. Really appreciate your help. Pat Cronin

Thanks Connie.
Glad I didn't "REALLY MISS SOMETHING"... I had been there quite sometime ago... (owners were not home) and looked for some time.. thinking maybe there was another area... This notation I have about her being buried there goes back quite some time.. (I think it's in the Pike county cemetery books from about 20 years ago..)

RE: Mount Olive Assembly of God Church Cemetery
Thank you again, Connie, for your help. Right now, I am looking for anyone with the last name of "Senn". I know that Fox and Carrie A had a daughter, Cleone, who married in Pike in 1943 but haven't figured out the name of her husband. Will check back next week on this cemetery to see if any of the other members of our extended family were buried there. Pat Cronin

Good morning, Connie. What a wonderful surprise awaited me when I got home late last night. Really appreciate you finding and taking photos of the tombstones of J D Bray and his wife, Lucille Campbell, as well as that of his son, Billy D Bray. But especially thankful to you for the photo of the tombstone of Fox Senn as I had not as yet discovered the name of his wife, Carrie A. Have been working for years on a family history and only this past few days had discovered Fox and his family. Hope you have a wonderful week, and thank you again for your help. Pat Cronin
