RE: Talbotton City Cemetery
Hi – I appreciate the updates you sent on the RADCLIFF memorials in Talbotton City Cemetery. My current project is a comprehensive analysis and update of the Linwood Cemetery records in Columbus, and in the course of that I looked at the family connections of George Washington RADCLIFF (1828-1902), Mem. #170996327.

As far as not having researched this, I must interject that I have referred to Davidson's multi-volume work on Talbot County many times, and although I have found an occasional slight error in his work here or there, by and large his work seems aptly researched, and he is generally good about mentioning sources--although, notably, he does not mention where he got the name Richard for Jacqueline's husband (I supposed from the deed record or estate probate, but that is only a guess). In any event, that is not to say that he could not have gotten his account about the RADCLIFF family wrong, but I have usually found his work to be reliable.

On the face of it, it seems you are probably right about Jacqueline (Mem. #170996843) having been married to John W. RADCLIFF, rather than to Richard (Mem. #170996904)as reported in Davidson’s “Rockaway” history of Talbot County. For now, I am keeping in mind, of course, that she could have married John W. and had children by him, then perhaps he died and she married second to Richard. Another possibility is that Davidson simply meant to say John W. RADCLIFF and for some reason said Richard RADCLIFF instead. I will have to investigate all of that further as I have time.

With regard to your suggestion that Jacqueline is not the mother of George Washington RADCLIFF, I’m not sure I agree with that. For starters, you cited a marriage record for John W. RADCLIFF & Jacqueline PACE as 13 APR 1835 in Warren County, North Carolina. However, I located an image of the marriage bond online, and the date is 13 APR 1825. So not only is Jacqueline old enough to be George’s mother, but she was married to RADCLIFF before his birth.

Moreover, the 1850 census shows her with the following other RADCLIFFs in the household: George 22, Lafayette 19, Samuel 17, & Mary 13. This information is also quoted in Davidson’s “Rockaway” treatment. Of course, the census does not specify relationships, but the most likely explanation is that they are her children, and absent any source that provides an alternative explanation, I am operating on that supposition. I had already linked George’s memorial to that of his brother, Samuel Mc. RADCLIFF (Mem. #42256440). George’s obituary mentions a surviving sister, Mrs. M. E. LEONARD of Talbotton, said to be the last of the family. Davidson says she is Mary (RADCLIFF) LEONARD (1837-1918), Mem. #42256440, who married Irban A. LEONARD (1831-1873), Mem. #46313196. They married 11 JAN 1855 in Talbot County and are both buried in the Talbotton City Cemetery. I assume she is the Mary aged 13 years in Jacqueline’s 1850 household. (Incidentally, I have notified the Thomaston-Upson Archives that the newspaper obit they posted on Mary (RADCLIFF) LEONARD's memorial actually belongs with another memorial, for Martha Jane "Mattie" (MATTHEWS) LEONARD, who married 1868 to Roderick LEONARD - they are both also in the Talbotton City Cemetery.)

Unless there is other information I have not seen, I am inclined to keep Jacqueline linked as the mother of George W.

I will check into the other matter as I have time and let you know what I am able to find, if anything. Thanks again. - John

RE: William Miller
I just took and posted a picture of William Miller's headstone. And some of it is hard to read. Since you are the person the memorial is maintained by, I thought you would want to read it.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

William Miller
Many of the headstones out at the Fort Bliss National Cemetery are very hard to read due to etching on white marble, striations in the marble and no letter darkening. Click on the photo a couple times to enlarge and it is easy to read.

RE: Cemetery
Hi Gerry,
Sorry for the delay in replying. Please give me a name in the wrong cemetery so that I can locate it. I remember this being a cemetery that someone asked me to make memorials for but I do not live in that area. I would like to do everything possible to have everyone memorialized in the right location.
