William H. Cahoon Confederate Service I am in thr process of gathering material to write a book on the service of William H. Cahoon of Sumter County Alabama. Although I have done extensive research on my own, I would greatly appreciate any informtion you might have.
You have a memorial for J.F. Dill (John Franklin) and his family. J.F. was the brother of my 3rd great grandmother Mary Ann Dill Wallace. J.F. and Mary Ann were children of John Dill and Ada Fulford Dill from Carteret County, NC. I am trying to figure out where John and Ada and Mary Ann are buried. John died prior to 1850. Mary Ann died around 1852 in childbirth, giving birth to my gr gr grandfather Edward Luther Wallace. After Mary Ann's death, Ed was given as a baby to Ada Fulford Dill (his grandmother) to be raised, and his father John Valentine Wallace, moved away to Gulf Shores area and remarried. Ed was raised along with J.F. and his brothers. Ed Wallace named one of his sons John Franklin Wallace, I am quite sure in honor of his uncle J.F. Dill. Ed Wallace and John Franklin's brother Samuel Dill moved to McNeill, Pearl River, MS in the 1890s.
I found some document that said Ada Fulford Dill died in the home of her son John Franklin in 1881 in Kinterbish, ALA.
Sallie McElroy Oops. Hit the wrong button on 1st try. Regarding Sallie McElroy's grave at the Old McElroy Cemetery in Sumter County, AL. I believe you have the wrong birth year on her site. If you look closely on an enlarged version of the photo, it's 1843 not 1848.
