I recently starting researching my family and immediatly got lost in all the names!! I came to FindAGrave to find information about family and found very helpful people!

I have gone to numerous cemetaries in the last couple of weeks (I REALLY enjoy doing this!). The number of unmarked graves amazes me. You can search and search and not find a grave. To me, this is very sad!

RE: Florence and Edward Neilan
Hi Robert. I created those memorials, but did not photograph them. I transcribed a large portion of Section 9 and I always intended to go back and get photos but I never seemed to make the time. Anyway, I checked my log book and there are no Flahives buried in the area. The names next to the Neilans are Herrington and Sotiriou. Sorry I could not assist you in this matter.

RE: Drury Alsup.
RE: Tabitha Brown Alsup
I'll try to keep this brief! :)
I was searching for the great Cherokee warrior chief Oconostota whom my grandmother said was my 5th great-grandfather. He was supposed to be through the line where Drury Alsup and Tabitha Brown were. I then hit the brick wall with Tabitha. Knowing that finding native American roots were difficult, I wondered if she could be the link. I had also heard that Chief Yonagusta "Drowning Bear" was a grandfather of ours, too.
I have a first cousin that is an archaeologist that has traced our tree back to Oconostota but hasn't had the opportunity to share his findings. He did give me the hint to find an in-common surname with people related to the Cherokee Civil War Brig. Gen. Stand Watie. Lo and behold, the name was "Brown". Chief Drowning Bear's English name was "John Brown". When I plugged his name in as Tabitha Brown's father, I quickly shot straight back to Oconostota.
I'm not saying that my research is correct, but it is what I was expecting to find, except Oconostota turned out to be my 6th great-grandfather.
I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this possibility.
Happy to be your cousin!
