John McLaurin My apologies but I mixed generations here with my suggestions. Satira Ringer Fuqua is the mother-in-law of John McLaurin here, not his wife. I believe all the other information I have added to this family is correct. Again, sorry for the extra trouble.
It will not let me correct the entry on john mclaurins page because it is listed as a calculated listing...i think you can remove it from Satira's page if you are the original contributor!
I was looking at your page for him and I saw this part " "a Mr. Toney from Alabama"".
I don't know if you know it or not but Silas Fuqua's wife was Sally Taney or Toney born 18 Sep 1797 in Madison, Alabama (other sources claim that her last name was Young). I think your Mr Toney is probably a relative of her's. Sally would be Fabius's aunt by marriage and also the mother of Galba Fuqua that was killed at the Alamo.
Also don't know if you know it or not but the Fuqua brothers; Silas, Benjamin and Ephram Fuqua all came to Texas from Alabama, even though they were originally from Bedford Co, Virginia. They brought with them a letter of introduction to Stephen F Austin (yes, THE Stephen F Austin) from a mutual friend in Town of Tuscumbia, Alabama that was dated 3 Jan 1828. Also their brother, Jacob Fuqua, had died in Alabama in 1825 so he did not accompany them when they left Alabama.
I am descended from Thomas, son of William, son of Ralph, son of Guilliaum. William was born in Goochland, Va and died in Bedford, Va. Thomas was born in Bedford and died in Jefferson Co, Ga before 12 March 1804. His daughter Clarissa was renamed Johnson after her mother married George Johnson in 1809. On 5 Oct 1815 Clarissa married Wright R Coleman in Jefferson Co, Ga and they were my GGG grand parents. Wright R Coleman was a JP, Post Master, and census taker in 1820 Ga for Laurens County and also a partner in the law firm of Fuqua and Coleman in Dublin, Ga in 1815. He died at sea in 1822 while returning to Ga from NY. The Fuqua being his brother in law, Henry C Fuqua, Clarissa's brother. There are still many Fuqua desendents and many, many Coleman desendants in Laurens County.

RE: Thankks! I will not ever hear from Find-A-Grave on this matter. I sent them 3 emails on this and it's been over a year since the first one. They usually are fairly prompt. One of their administrators blew it and they can't fix it. All we can do is notify contributors individually and try to get them to move the memorials.
