I have recently started doing research on my family history and stumbled across this great site. I have some photos I am going to upload of ancestors grave sites and I am also looking for others.

I live in Denver CO now and would be happy to help if anyone needs pictures of anything in the area.

As of Jan 2010 I am new to the site, but look forward to jumping in.

RE: Thank you
You are very welcome, it is my honor to leave a token for Daniel. I know how brave he had to be. I pray for the day thT dreadful disease is a distant memory and that children like our boys never have to suffer. I have added you to my friends list and will visit Daniel frequently. Fondly, Allison

RE: Comptons
Katie was Clara'a sister, right? I met your aunt and her mother, Mrs. L. Ellison here in Houston in 1973. They were so nice and tried to help me with family history. I was very interested, but young and did not follow up on genealogy as I should have done. Busy with work. Clara made me a chart on the relationship between the Compton and McCain famiies--I still have it.
J. I meant to tell you that the family history I have says that Henry Rufus Compton Jr. was said to have never married and was buried in the Old Norred Cem. His father, Henry Rufus Compton died in a Confederate War Camp in Montgomery in 1862, and we don't know where he is was buried as far as I know. He IS listed as being buried in the Old Norred Cem. on F.A.G. Henry
Jr.,also, with links to their parents.
Please e-mail me at
You probably have a lot of good info that I don't have, and maybe some pics. I just found out today that a sister of my gg grandfather and James Frazier Compton was buried at the Old Norred Cem. too. Marian/Marion J. Compton Finch and her spouse, Francis M. Finch.
Am looking forward to hearing from you, and maybe I can help you too. We have found some interesting info about the Sowerhavers.

Was you grandmother Clara Ellison Erath? I have read in family history where Henry Rufus Compton never married and was buried in the Old Norred Cem. Wilcox, AL.

My g g grandfather was the brother of James Frazier Compton.

I left a note for your lovely son. Pics so good of him, with that wonderful smile.

MC Compton
Please excuse me for jumping the gun on Henry Compton's memorial. Do you want me to transfer it and the young son's memorial to you?

I deleted my duplicate of MC Compton. Didn't know the dates, didn't realize I was making a duplicate. I hyperlinked her original memorial to Henry's for now stating her entire name with maiden name.

Truly sorry for stepping on your toes.

RE: Norred Cemetery
Absolutely. There definitely was evidence of unmarked graves there also.
