RE: Martha J Price Photo
Sorry, I have lived in the US for a while now. Don't know anyone personally. The group is called Clarke-Oconee Genealogical Society and you can find them on the internet. Best of luck.

Ora Lightfoot Wells Payne
I believe I received an edit with the name change. I did see the census does give middle initial as L before her marriage. Will have to go through over a thousand edits to see who sent it. It might be a while for me to go through it. No further family info. Was just working on the cemetery. My wife has some Wells in her family but don't think Ora is connected.

RE: George Williams, Green Mount Cem.
Hi Linda,
I did some research on Maj. George Archer Williams. See Memorial# 160148702.
I found his plot, but his name was not found on any marker (there were one or two unreadable markers).

George Williams, Green Mount Cem.
Hi Linda,
You have a photo request for a George Williams at Green Mount Cemetery in Baltimore. His Find A Grave page lists him as being in the War of 1812, and your request list yours as 1827-1887. Your George Archer Williams died 3/27/1887 according to his obit that I have. He was wounded at Gettysburg, captured with General Archer, and was confined on Johnson's Island for several months.

RE: Ellen Chapman
I will check this memorial and get back with you on this. I only have a few days before I have school but if you will help me to recall...I might be able to get them to delete their memorial. I don't care for duplicates but at the same time not many cross referencing because it doesn't make Find A Grave look as 'clean' as it shouldn. Keep me posted on all of this to see if can remember to get it donw.

RE: Ellen Chapman
I seem to have pass this inquiry right on by. It was asked around the first part of December 2015.

Have to say that this family you are researching has an interesting history to share. I am not related to any Coes' or Halls' that I am aware of but

I will say that we have two families on different sides of the family which have similar stories like you have mentioned; however, the fammilies are from my Mama's family adn the other family is from my Daddy's line.

Both stories are fun to read but very sad. Sorry I couldn't help you with your research. I know you love historical ancestry as I do but my love for ancesry or seaching goes way back to when I was a child. I was interesting in history of all types when I was a chid, therefore the 'love' of history is part of my entire life. I was always curious about anything to go back and look for about even ancient history to current history.

RE: Ellen Chapman
I believe I changed this for you last night. You can verify cause I saw the email and thought I did it. You can add Ellen within your virtual cemetery for the Chapmon family or the Wells family if you have that. I noticed that many of those are added by all sorts of people. If you would like to add anything within the actual memorial then send me an edit or let me know if you would like to place a hyperlink within this memorial. Someone showed me that fascinating fact recently.

Ellen Chapman
Got your note and thank you for your suggestion. Sorry to hear about the last of the Wells passing away. This is so sad to hear for your family.

Well, as you know Uncle Robert was my Uncle as well. He was my Grandmother Shown's brother. I know how the name has changed throughout the years. One spelled it one way and another spelled it another way. Did you say that Robert and Ellen spelled it with an "a" or an "o" at the end? Even within my own family it was Chatmon, Chatman, Chapmon and Chapman. If it says Chapman on the tombstone I can change it but otherwise it seems fruitless. I know my maiden name from my my Daddy's family spelled Shown (which is how I spell it) from Shoun which is what my Great Grandfather became a Shown after his Daddy had changed it. What is interesting is my name started out in the beginning with the original "Shoun, Shown or Shawn' as being Von Schaun from Germany. I could also show how my Mama's maiden changed several times as well. Have a good Christmas and I will check this out for you.
