Bio and Links
Researching genealogy for the ancestors of Deuese Lorenzo Johnson and Ethel A. Mackey Johnson. Names of primary research: Kitchens/Kitchings, Mackey(NC, GA, FL) Johnson (of FL, NC & SC), and Corn (NC, SC).

I have also recently begun researching my own family. Names of primary research: Knowles, Jackson, and Mitchell (in South AL, FL and GA). Also, Rizzo, Retz and Swisher (in MI, IL and IN).

Thank you to all contributors to FindAGrave and especially to those who have documented my family members unknowingly or by taking volunteer photos upon request. That is what makes this website such a good Genealogy tool. Connectiing family graves via the links and adding genealogy info to the memorials brings added interest and makes research easier on those that follow. Blessings to you all!

Knowles, Eli 108797198
Are you sure about his parents as being George Short Knowles and Harriett Elizabeth?

1. His obit gives siblings as Mrs. Chalmers, which is Violet Knowles, d/o Palatka, Putnam Co., Fla and Jersey Knowles - who might have been Jesse William Knowles.

2. The obit gives father as George and mother as Elizabeth Green. There is a George William Knowles and Elizabeth Green Knowles buried here:
Knowles, George William 33456589
Knowles, Mrs Elizabeth Green 115141760

3. George Short Knowles and Harriett Elizabeth Coon lived in Alabama. They married 26 April 1868 in Lee County, AL
G. S. born in 1842 and died Jun. 8, 1887 and is buried in Mount Nebo Cemetery, Jefferson County, AL. Harriett is buried next to him, born Jul., 1849 and died Dec. 13, 1916

Since neither ever lived in Florida, and Eli was born in Palatka, Putnam Co., Fla, I suggest that you have the wrong parents in your tree for him.
His parents were George WIlliam Knowles and Elizabeth Green, buried at Etonia.

Ruth Johnson Mackey Campbell Seley
Checking on (Essie) Ruth Johnson Mackey Campbell Seley. She was married to Eugene Seley 1945, & they were divorced. This is the name on her gravestone. He had been married once before, & she was his second wife. I am trying to locate a daughter of theirs, Patricia Seley, my cousin. In one message by another cousin that does remember her, she calls her a "step-sister". I am wondering is Patricia used the Johnson or Mackey or Campbell name by chance & was not legally adopted by Eugene Seley but, went by the name Patricia Seley. I know this a shot in the dark but, do you know of anyway I could anything about her. She is not listed in the 1945 census year for Florida. And it is okay for you to say, there is no info on her, I will certainly understand.

Ben and Ellen Corn
Hi Tammy, Edits made for Ellen Corn. Our informaton came from "The Transylvania Co. Heritage Book NC-Vol. 2-2008; the article was written by great grandson, Charles Pierson,(now deceased) Brevard, NC; researched by S. G. Roper. There are other Corn families in the book. We will transfer Ben and Ellen if requested; they are not related to us.

Hi Tammy
Hello I am Gloria's daughter Tammy. I have been building my family tree on and the links I have been following have us related to John Peter Corn. Have you found links to the same information? I am trying to verify that it is correct.

RE: N C Gillespie
Dear Tammy,
Thank you so much for your quick response. I think you are doing a great job at managing. I only noticed that the transcription was incorrect having recently visited my 2nd great-grandfather's grave. Nancy was my grandfather's second wife, she was not my grandmother. However, she was also married firstly to a relative on my fathers side. So she is enter twined on both sides of my family.

Thank you again,

Debbie Whitt

If you will look at both photos on Wilton's page, he has a military marker that was where a footpeg would have gone. I took a photo of that as well.
Many thanks!

I went to photograph today but could not find him. So I checked with the office and they found the grave on their map. The man from the office walked us to where the grave is but there is no marker. There were no other Pearls around. I'm sorry!
