Finally after all these years I'm back in touch with Jamey Mcloughlin and his Mom Barbara from Roane co. Jamey has sent some pictures and I will put them on the memorials.
Got to spend a day with Chris Cash and his wife Joy in Gulf Shores, sure enjoyed their visit.

Our Ancestors deserve to be recognized, their homes, occupations, court houses, even their families were destroyed by the invading northern army from, fill in the blank. They wanted to destroy our history. Lets not give up, just change our tactics.
Have you ever wondered where you came from, why are you here, who you are and where are you going?

If you are a family member, or not, leave some flowers on the memorials so that others will know that you came by.
Thank you Sue for helping me clean up some of my kinfolks part in the Generys Gap Cemetery, and planting the roses. I couldn't have did it with out you. (May 2013).
I maybe slow adding to the Memorials, But I won't

Crab Orchard Cemetery
Hi Bobby,

I was wondering if you had photos of the headstones in Crab Orchard Cemetery for the Morgan's, specifically Andrew, Juda, Solomon, Minerva, and Robert. I am also seeking information about Robert's wife, whom I believe to be Elizabeth. Not sure if she is buried near him.

Thanks, Cheryl Morgan

Terrisa Josephine hollingsworth Martin
Recently I have discovered some information about my great grandmother, Josephine Hollingsworth Martin, buried in the Pratt City Cemetery. She was born Sept. 1st 1854 in Alabama. Her parents were Wesley Hall Hollingsworth and Susan Lee, who were married in Tennessee in 1836. She married Jasper Caldwell when she wasonly 18 and had 4 children by the time she was 25. Her husband, William Jasper Caldwell died at 31 yrs. old in Jefferson COunty on October 23, 1886. She then remarried William F. Martin from Kentucky, and had one more child, Willie Lee Martin, born 1893 in Birmingham, Ala. Willie Lee is my grandmother. I understand that Josephine had 3 brothers, John, Edward Columbus, and Needham Hollingsworth. I was surprised to see that Josephine(actually Terrisa or Terracy Josephine Hollingsworth Martin) was not included with children of Wesley and Susan Hollingsworth.I have a nice photo of her, if you would like me to send it!thanks, Maggie

John's sister Josephine Hollingsworth
I thank you, Bobby, on behalf of my good friend and mentor, the children's author Gloria Root Savoldi (1922-1995), who was the granddaughter of Josephine Hollingsworth (1854-1940) by her second marriage to William F. Martin.

I am researching this family, so if you would like more information, please contact me.

Spouse of Clifford J. Morgan

I'm searching for death or burial records for Clifford John Morgan's spouse, Mattie E.A. Morgan. She passed within 5 years of Clifford John, but I have not been able to locate a death certificate or burial record.

I know Clifford John is buried at Harriman. Following his death, Mattie may have moved back in with her parents who lived in District 1, Roane County according to 1920 Census records. I do know that in 1930 Mattie's parents moved to California with her child, but no sign of Mattie in the 1930 census.

I'd appreciate any information you can provide that might help me research records in TN. I've tried online searches for cemeteries but so far so luck. Pretty sure she must be buried in Roane County.

Ellis Hollingsworth
Hi, thank you Bobby for all of your help in tracing our family heritage. My name is Brenda Gail Sparks born Brenda Gail Hollingsworth. I am the oldest daughter of James Ellis Hollingsworth, Jr. His dad was James Ellis Hollingsworth, Sr. the son of Needham Wesley Hollingsworth and Margaret Hollingsworth. James Ellis Hollingsworth, Sr. was married to Rosa Hollingsworth, my grandma and grandpa. My dad was born in Bessemer, Alabama on January 29, 1921 and died October 17, 2010 in Oceanside, Calif. of cardiac arrest. My mother Edna Hollingsworth (Lackey) was born on August 22, 1929 in a home in Munford, Alabama. She is alive and well. Me and my two brothers Terry James Hollingsworth, and Tommy Ellis Hollingsworth were also born in Bessemer. Me: August 28, 1948, Terry: March 29, 1950, and Tommy: June 7, 1951. My two sisters Kimberly Ann and Karen Sue were born in Californis. Kim on January 30, 1960 and Karen on November 3, 1964. Thank you so much for the pictures and the information. The story we have heard about James Ellis Hollingsworth son of Needham Wesley was that he was shot by one of the guys he was playing cards or shooting craps with, because they thought he was going home to get a gun to shoot one of them. As far as I know the case was never looked into. We believe he was murdered. My dad had 4 siblings in age order: Margaret, dad, Wesley Earl, and Clara. All are dead now.

Clifford J Morgan
Thank you for sharing all the information you have gathered on the Morgan/Leffew family line. Hassie Mae Morgan's brother Clifford John was my paternal grandfather. Because Clifford and his wife Mattie Smith both died so young, not sure I could have tracked my father's roots without your help.

My father, Charles Andrew Morgan (1922-1965) was raised by his maternal grandmother. I had very little information about his family and it's been difficult to track because I wasn't even sure about his parents names. Mattie (Smith) Morgan died in 1926, and I've not been able to locate a death certificate for her yet, but I believe they were still living in Roane County, TN.

Anyway, I really did just want to thank you. You've done a tremendous amount of work gathering all the family information. I'm still feeding some of it into Ancestry and working with Ancestry genealogists to document it all. I can't tell you how grateful I am for all your hard work.
