RE: Rush Franklin Brown
Thank you, Paul, for responding.

I'll try and break it down as concisely as I can.

My paternal g. g. grandparents were Martha Elizabeth Hatcher Curtis and Joshua A. Curtis.
Their daughter. Rebecca Lavina (my g. grandmother),
married William Porter Bateman (second husband). Porter Bateman's father was Alphred Bateman, and Alphred's father was Edwin Bateman who was from Tyrrell, North Carolina. He married Frances Collier, and their first child was Alphred. Alphred married Louisa Hooper (my g.g. grandparents).

I've noticed in my search that some of Rebecca Vina's nieces and other relatives married Browns. Most were from McEwen, TN.

My maternal g. grandparents were Rush Franklin Brown and Nancy Ann Wallace Brown. Their son, Oscar Braden Brown, was my grandfather. They were from McEwen, TN. My g. grandmother move to TX in 1922 to live with her children. I am to assume that my g. grandfather died in TN before she left. I can't find where he is buried.

My p. grandfather, Hayden Bateman, said his mother, Rebecca Vina was full blood Cherokee. My m. grandfather, Oscar Brown, said he was 1/4 Cherokee. I am beginning to think since they were both from McEwen, TN that they were related somehow.

To simplify things some, I am going to e-mail the memorial sites for my grandparents.

Have you ever heard the name Rush Franklin Brown (born in 1846, McEwen, TN)? His spouse was Nancy Ann Wallace Brown, buried in Terrell, Tx. I think he probably died in TN
but have never found where he is buried.
They were my m. great grandparents.

Rev. John H.B.E. Warren
I just noticed that the birth date of 1775 you have for Rev. John HBE Warren (63920364), who died on Sept 26, 1836 in Rutherford Co, Tennessee, is probably incorrect. He was a Revolutionary War soldier and one son was born in 1782. I have his Pension File and it lists his birth year as 1759. He is my 4th great-grandfather. Thank you for listing his grave on find-a-grave. I also have no information on where he is buried, but have to assume it would be in Rutherford, TN.
Thanks again....

Juliann L. "Annie" Donalson Turner
Trying to find the grave for Annie Turner, wife of Samuel H. Turner. He is buried at Turner Farm cemetery with his mother and father. Can't find anything else about her! I have details about their marriage date and census information, but no death or burial. Trying to find death info because I am stuck on finding her parents and hope death certificate might give more information. Any information you could offer would be great!

TURNER FARM, Johnson County,ARK

I saw that you made a photo request of the Turner Farm cemetery where Jesse Turner is buried. also buried there is Samuel H. Turner, his son. I am trying to find more information on Samuel's wife, Juliann L. Domson/Davison/Donaldson -also known as Annie L. Turner. Do you know any more about her?

John Turner
Within John's memorial, you state that no marker exists. Yet, a picture of his headstone is on the page. Is this marker actually at Choate (McClurken) or is it elsewhere?

Hey Paul, how have you been?
Haven't had contact in awhile.
I found a conflict of entries. You have opened 2 Fews Chapel Cemetery, (in Humphreys County, TN)listings on Find A Grave. You have Lula Belle Dotson Burgess (1861 - 1944)* #51707350 all by herself in one listing and her husband in the other listing

Hi Paul,
I am not related to the Porters but if you are, I will be happy to transfer them to you. I have linked Etta Mae as spouse.
