James Fleming Chapman, Sr. #69581386
I don't know if you are still active or not, but, I've been doing some research on J.F. Chapman, Sr. and wanted to share with you what I have figured out.

I've seen so many trees online suggesting his 4th wife was Ella Gertrude Burney but no sources for her name.

However, in 1870 there is an 8 year old girl named C.E. Holcomb living in his home and then in 1880 he is married to Charlotte who is 18 years old.

Her son Don's social security claim has his mother listed as Ella Holcomb. Her son Alonzo has his mother listed as Eliza Hawkins, which, with a severe southern accent could be mistaken for Holcomb, but, personally, I think the 4th wife was Charlotte Ella Holcomb and not Ella Gertrude Burney.

Just a thought; my research will reflect his because there are absolutely no sources for Ella Gertrude Burney.

Sadly, it appears that James liked young girls because every one of his wives were teenagers (except his 3rd wife, Hester).

Also, does anyone have a source for his 2nd wife, Eliza Ann Burney's parents? Yes, she fits to be the girl who lived with William & Rachel (Hunter) Burney during the 1850 census, but I don't think she was their daughter.

They had a daughter named Elizabeth Ann Burney who was born about 1828, but, she married James Stafford in 1845 and is in the census with him up until 1860 and she is in the census until 1900.

The Eliza from the 1850 census with William & Rachel Burney doesn't appear to be their daughter, in my opinion. After all, why would they have 2 daughters with the same name?

Hope this helps.

Lydia Harden
We searched off and on for Lydia Harden's relatives for years. No luck until now. We found Lydia's photo on find a grave. My father, Lydia's son, George told me about his mother, Lydia and his sisters, Mable and Wealthy. The Washington Library located her obituary showing husband Joseph Ameson and 3 children Wealthy, George and Mable. This matches info at Hart's Mortuary, Macon, Ga. George was adopted by Phillips family and Mable was adopted by someone in Fort Valley however she ranaway. George had also ran away from several previous families. When she married Joseph Ameson they tried to get George and Mable back but they had been adopted. When she became ill, George was located and was able to visit her. She gave him sisters names Whealthy and Mable along with father, Strong Harden and mother, Elizabeth Simmons. Mable stayed with George for short time. He thought she went to Fla. My DNA test is on We are looking for relatives. We are unable to locate his birth cert and his father's information.. Any all information in appreciated. Addie Joyce

Sarah Doyle Walker
Hello Brenda.
While researching my husband's Walker relatives in south Georgia, we visited Upper Mill Cemetery in Darien. I took photos of the Doyles and of Thomas Walker which seem to be replacement markers since they are fairly new. I believe that Thomas may be the husband of Sarah Doyle Walker whose marker is not in the cemetery. The other marker photo of Sarah Carroll Doyle with dates 1803, born Ireland, and death date about 1885, reflects perhaps the mother and maybe father or brother Matthew for Sarah Doyle Walker. Matthew is on the same marker as Sarah Carroll Doyle but with no separate dates for him.

I will send the marker photo if you want to email me at so you can see.

Griffins and Hands
Hi Brenda, I am sure you get a lot of emails from Find A Grave. There were several things I would like to talk to you about with some of my Griffin and Hand ancestors on Find A Grave. Could you email me? or would you rather me send all the requests through Find A Grave? Thank you so much.
