Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Texas during WWII to a Texan mother and Mississippi father. I have searched graves from Virginia to Texas exploring their families and those of my Claiborne/Taylor/Lyle husband from Tennessee. I'm currently active with my Tynes, Rogers, Pounds, Williams, Robison folks from Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas, and would like to learn more about the Weatherman and Guynn families in Virginia and North Carolina, (families of my daughter-in-law).

To me, the people I search are more than dates on stone - they are family waiting for someone to tell their stories. I enjoy linking them to their parents and children. Like a family reunion for the dead.

I am not able now to travel and search cemeteries myself, and therefore I am extremely pleased to see other volunteers finding my family. They are real heroes to me. I am always happy to transfer family members to more direct descendants. But I will not transfer to a "Society" for genealogical purposes only. They deserve to be honored by their own family.

I updated the memorial. I added that he married in Roane County. If that is not correct let me know.

Thanks for the update. Louise

RE: John Sevier Compton
Hi Barbara - there's a book called The Heritage of Morgan County Alabama that has information about the Comptons. It says that John S. Compton was in the 28th Alabama Infantry. That book can be found on Worldcat. I've pulled his records from Fold3 and they say he was a private and a teamster in Co. F of the Ala. 28th. The history of the 28th has Co. F in the Battle of Ezra Church, then outside of Atlanta, on the date given for John S.'s death. According to reports, 4 men of the 28th were killed at that battle. I haven't been able find where the names of the 4 men were listed, but I haven't done anything other than a cursory look. In any event, I believe this information about John S. Compton, my ggg grandfather, to be correct. In any event, you may want to look at this possibility.

Hi Barbara,
Just let me know if you want me to transfer the memorial to you. I did some looking but couldn't locate Adelaide after 1942.
