If you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones, check out two good sites at http://iagenweb.org/ringgold/cemeteries/gravestonesymbols.html and
http://www.graveaddiction.com/symbol.html Neat informative sites. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist?

Check out Scotch-Irish Presbyterians From Ulster to Rockbridge, by Angela M. Ruley, 3 October 1993. Angela headed the Rockbridge Area Genealogy Society and wrote several impressive publications on Rockbridge Co.

Louis William Harrison
I see you have information about Louis and his family listed from the 1900 census. I can find nothing about him or any of his children in the 1900 federal census on ancestry. Where did you find this? Thanks

I added a picture of the Kelly tombstone and while I believe it is the correct one, as you see it is in bad shape, so if you don't think its correct, let me know.

Benjamin F. Cochran
I believe you are talking about two different Benjamin F. Cochran

The marker I had placed in Mt. Nebo (Bloodworth) cemetery is a memorial marker he died in Virginia and and is probably buried there. His father Benjamin Cochran applied for his pay.

The following information was taken from Benjamin F. Cochran's Confederate War Record. Benjamin F. Cochran was born in Talbot Co., Ga. He enlisted in Co. F, 27th Georgia Infantry Regiment, Confederate Army, September 9, 1861 at Griffin, Ga. His father, Benjamin Cochran, applied for his pay December 31, 1862. Thomas R. King and George Knight Justices of the Peace of Taylor County, Ga. attested to his statement. Benjamin Cochran appointed Willis Jinks his true and lawful attorney to collect the pay of his son Benjamin F. Cochran. Benjamin F. Cochran's record stated that he was in Culpepper Hospital, Va. from September, 1861 to December, 1861. He was admitted to Moore Hospital at General Hospital No. 1, Danville, Virginia December 29, 1861. He died at First Georgia Hospital in Richmond, Virginia on the eleventh day of July 1862, leaving neither wife or child.
His Descriptive List and Account of Pay and Clothing gave his age as 22, blue eyes, dark hair, fair complexion and 6 ft. 1 in. tall. Born in Talbot County and occupation was listed as farmer.

Benjamin F. Cochran was brother to my 2nd great-grandmother Caroline Emeline Cochran Bryant. The approximate location of his grave was pointed out to me by my uncle Henry Martin Bryant a grandson of Caroline Emeline Cochran Bryant.
Several members of the family are buried in this plot unmarked. They were proud but poor dirt farmers.
