Bio Photo I have so many questions, and if you have answers please let me know.

Who/where is the father of Burell L. STORY, who is buried in the Old Cemetery at Schuyler Lake?

Who/where are the collateral descendants of Robert H. Story and his first wife Emma CARRICK Story that might have pictures of her and their children?

Where did the Durians of Grossingersheim get their name? Was it really originally French?

I believe that my grandfather is buried in a different location than you have posted (Forest Cemetary)

My mother was buried Mt. Emblem Cemetery, Elmhurst, IL in a location set aside for her and my father, Donald I Reed (still living) with Donald's parent's
Samuel Irving Reed and Pearl Reed.

Can you please clarify where your information came from?

I need your help on Elias A. Drake
Garden Green Girl,
I am looking for closure on my 2nd great uncle, (Elias A. Larce Drake b. 1842 in Henderson County, NC). He was a confederate soldier who enlisted in the 25th NC Infantry, Company A on 5-15-1861. He was wounded at Malvern Hill in the Seven Days Battles on 7-1-1862, His last military record shows him being present through August 1863. I have searched Fold 3 as well as other Civil War reference books with no luck. You have him dying in Charleston, SC in Sept,1864 and being buried in the Morris Island Confederate Cemetery with seven other soldiers. Both Union and Confederate. I would like to know,(very much) what your source is for this information. Feel free to contact me,

Thx ahead, Bob Drake

Hello GGGirl:
You left a flower message on the memorial of Harry Hall Carrick, but I have never found that he had a sister named Emma Carrick Story.

Harry Hall Carrick was the oldest child of Rebecca Hubie and Thomas Carrick, they having married 29 August 1870 in Kansas.

Was your Emma Carrick a daughter of these parents? Any help appreciated.
Cheers~ Shirleen

Elias Drake Wright
Wondering what your source is on the birth date and patrimony of Elias. I'm related to many Wrights from the Carolinas and Georgia, although I don't have any confirmation of Christopher Columbus Wright's parents, I have a 4th cousin 1xr DNA match with the great granddaughter of Elias. There doesn't appear to be any other common ancestor between us, but if she is the 2nd great granddaughter of CC Wright, the genetic distance is perfect, the geography is perfect, and Elias would be the son of CC Wright (not of Thomas Drake). Thoughts?

Parents Mourning Dove Calloway Baker?
I have been a bit of research on Mourning Dove Calloway Baker and was redirected to your listing here on for her Memorial#117522779.

While you have a great write up here, I was wondering if you know who her parents were?

Another Memorial #118526718, has her parents as Andrew Baker 1749-1815 and Elizabeth Avant Baker 1752-1844. (I believe this is Solomon's parents, not Mourning Dove's)

My research has her parents as Benjamin Calloway (1754-1830) and Red Wind "Jane" (1756-1830)
Here is my Source that I don't mind sharing which is an Interview:

Mae Belle Whitaker Owens: Information about Solomon Baker

Home Page
Surname List
Index of Individuals


Solomon Baker (b. April 13, 1770, d. Abt. 1847)

Solomon Baker (son of Andrew Baker and Elizabeth Avent) was born April 13, 1770 in Osborne's Station, Ashe County, North Carolina, and died Abt. 1847 in Washington County, Arkansas. He married Mourning Dove Calloway on 1795 in Ashe County, North Carolina.
Notes for Solomon Baker:
Solomon Baker was born 13 April 1770 in Osborne's Station, Ashe County, North Carolina. He married Mourning Dove Calloway about 1795 in Ashe County, North Carolina. She was born about 1774 in North Carolina believed to be the daughter of Benjamin Calloway and Red Wing. It is believed that she was at least Shawnee. Delia Camelia Whitaker told her grandchildren that her great grandmother was an Indian Princess; this is believed to be a reference to Mourning Dove Calloway.The following is an excerpt from Reba Oler about the parents of Mourning Dove Calloway:

"My GGGG Grandfather was Benjamin Calloway he left the late 1700s after having taken a young Indian girl from her tribe twice and twice they came and took her back, the third time the two of them ran away and didn't stop until they reached the wilderness of N.C.
I`m 64 years old and very well remember what my G Grandmothers family said about them. I know three of the children's names were Betsy, Fanny and William and there were more.they lived on Calloway peak very near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Ben was a hunter and said his cousin married Jemima Boone.
I have done a great deal of searching but cant determine which Calloway would have been his Father--the Indian girls name was Redwing but for some reason I had the impression she was Shawnee--anyway I looked at the Ashe co. census and found
Solomon Baker so this tells me Morning Dove was very likely one of Ben and Redwings daughters as that was the general area--"

Perhaps we can pool our sources and perhaps come up with Mourning Doves parents if mine are not correct.

Let me know if you have any further information.

I am the 5th great grandson of Solomon Baker and Mourning Dove. You have posted a photo of them on Mourning Dove Bakers Find-a-Grave site. Could you email me a high resolution copy that I could use with our family history. Thank you, Robert Marsh

The photograph you have on the find a grave site for Esther Kilgore is incorrect. The is actually photograph taken some years later. The photo is actually of Arennia Bradley, wife of James Jones.
