Also married to Claudis Emory Whitmore (1885-1962), where, when, & where is she buried. Emery/Emory is buried at Oak Grove Cemetery in Calhoun County, Ala.

Talmage Walker
Me again...

I still haven't figured out if your Talmage is the same one associated with my Essie. But, I did find another marriage license for a Talmage Walker and Zella Martin (Oct. 16, 1941) with the same parents you have noted. I have copies of both and can email them to you if you are interested and don't already have them.

RE: Talmage Walker
Thanks for the info. I actually do have a copy of a marriage license indicating a marriage July, 6, 1935 to Essie. I'm just not sure if this is the same Talmage. The marriage apparently didn't last long because she remarried in 1939. My understanding is that the Talmage I'm interested in had the nickname 'Tubby' at some point in his life. I was hoping to find someone that might have some photos of him when he was in his 20s or 30s.

Anyway, thanks again for the info.

Best Regards and Happy New Year!

Talmage Walker
Let me apologize in advance if I have the wrong Talmage Walker (which is certainly possible - maybe even probable). But, do you know if he was married to Essie Pridmore prior to his marriage to Carrie? And, if so, did they have any children? Essie was my grandmother and the family history is a curious one, so this may be just another rabbit hole.

Thanks, and again, sorry if I have the wrong Mr. Walker.

Margaret Fredonia Lowery is my GGGrandmother. I saw where you posted the grave picture. So are we related? I saw where there is a Lowery reunion mentioned? Just curious. I live not too far from their gravesite. Thanks!

RE: Michael Sweat
Karen, I have not yet. I did email with the Ronnie, that you met at the reunion. He was going to get back with me. I have still not spoken to him but hope to hear from him.

Nolla Lee McGhee
Hi Karen,

I would be happy to link her to her parents but I am currenly unable to locate her memorial. Would it be possible for you to go to her memorial, click on edit in the upper r-hand corner, and then send a suggestion? That will send me a link directly to her memorial.

Thanks! ~ Tiffany Farnsworth Nash #47423100

Can you link Nolla to her parents? Father: Noah F. Sweat 88487324 and Mattie "Lea" Manley Sweat 88487366. Trying to link all of my Aunts and Uncles to their parents.

Thank you very much for your help. Have a great night.
