|S Smith||Smith Family at Cane Creek, Walker County|
Thanks again for putting the Smith Family cemetery online. I believe that my ancestors, John and Susanna Smith are buried there. Their grandchildren John Henry Smith and Cicero Smith enlisted at Ringgold in 1861. They both survived the war. While John Henry and Cicero were fighting their parents Jesse Tatum Smith and Nancy E Kite Smith left Walker County and moved to Alabama; they eventually ended up in Texas.
I was wondering if you could recommend some good sources of Walker County history. My ancestors were settled in Walker County. They had farms and extended family. Historically, when people leave their homes during wartime, itís because the conditions get unbearable. I can imagine union armies marching through on their way to burn and destroy as much of Georgia as they could. John Henry served under Gen. H T Walker, Gen. Hardee, and Gen. Joe Johnston; he was a part of the army that fought Sherman outside of Atlanta. I am wondering if Jesse and Nancy took their six younger children west to save them from starvation and war wrought by the Northern invasion.

|Ronald/Katherine Bradley||RE: Hicks Cemetery|
Rock Springs to Shields Lake, on the hill to the right above the lake, on property that used to be Hicks property with a house now. Have to walk thru a field to top of hill.
An easier way I think,but I am not too good giving this location. Go out Goodson Lane in a settlement on left, on hill, good parking area behind a home. It's not nearly as far to walk this way.
Last time I was there 5 yrs ago, there were trees down across the iron fence. Should have some upkeep since it is the oldest Hicks.
Good luck and happy hunting.
PS> I know of another cemetery that isn't on registry.
|Jack Johnson||Greenwood Cemetery|
There is so many, i would have to know which one.
|Drew Hester||Zoar Cemetery|
That's a great question, and one I'm curious about as well. Let me see if I can get a little more research done on it and I'll get back to you with anything that I find.

Thank you so much for all you have done to help so many of us find our ancestors. Also for the reenactments as efforts to perform this tragedy of our ancestors is phenomenal. It is our ancestry, history was made and changed our country.
|Maurine Atchley Humphreys||Patterson|
I am trying to find my Great Grandfather Robert Patterson, he was married to Susannah Headrick Patterson. He was born 1806, died 1864. He was in the confederate Infantry. There is a picture of him in uniform at a museum at Shiloh, Tenn.
I live in California so can't be there to search for him.
