CAIN,SIZEMORE I am looking for info on my gt grandfather. He was either born as John wM Cain 1866 Gwinnett GA or WM J J (possibly Jonathan) Cain same birth date and place. He died 1937 Merced County, Ca buried in Redlands Hillcrest Memorial Cem. Redlands, CA. M- Vina Rose Sizemore 6-29-1884 Gwinnett County, GA. They lived in Alabama at times. I have a 1900 census of them with their family living in Lawrenceville in WolfSprings county, AL. Some of their children were born in Gwinnett, GA and some in AL,.I have my Sizemore line identified but lack anything to link my gt grandfather to his family. I am not quite sure about his parents, etc. I do have the 1880 Gwinnett GA census that confirms my gt grandmother Vina Sizemore age 14 with her family and extended family members. But I found a Cicero Cain and Mary (Wheeler) Cain as her neighbor too and they had a son John WM Cain age 14 b- 1866 Gwinnett GA. I am trying to find out if this was him or not. I do know that Cicero Cain and Mary Cain are buried in Cleburne County AL. I thought that since I do know that my gt grandparents also lived in AL and GA that it was too much of a coincidence that Cicero and his family moved back and forth from GA and died in AL too. I do know that the Wheeler's are also from GA and AL. Please help me. Let me know if anyone has info or need more info from me. Lisa

I am looking for all info on my gt gt grandparents CICERO COLUMBUS CAIN AND MARY E WHEELER CAIN They were both born 1844 Gwinnett GA and can be found on the 1850 1860 census living in gwinnett GA as neighbors. They move away on the 1870 census and I am trying to locate them. They moved back to gwinnett GA on the 1880 census. Cicero was also a neighbor to my Sizemore line on the 1850,1860 census and then again on the 1880 census. Cicero's father JAMES CAIN was a neighbor to my EPHRIAM SIZEMORE. Cicero grew up with Seaborn Sizemore. I found Seaborn Sizemore on the 1870 Dekalb Co GA census before he moved back to Gwinnett GA for the 1880 census but I can not locate Cicero and Mary Cain in 1870. Cicero's son John WM Cain marrys Seaborns daughter Vina Rose Sizemore. Except he went by WM J J Cain on all records that I have. Does anyone have any info to help me find Cicero's family in 1870 and how I can prove his son John WM Cain is my Wm J J Cain b- 1866 Gwinnett GA. It's ironic that Vina's family was neighbors to Cicero's family for many years if it's not him. Lisa

Lisa Gilmore Fri May 17 17:06:38 2002
I have the missing puzzle piece to my Wheeler/Cain/Sizemore mystery. I had a gt grandfather WM Jonathan Cain b- I thought 4/1866 Gwinnett GA. He was actually born 4/11/1865 Gwinnett GA. I know that he married Vina Rose Sizemore 6-29-1884 Gwinnett GA(I hav ethis doc). I know people usually married their neighbors in 1800s. This is why as I found my Vina R Sizemore age 14 in Gwinnett GA 1880 census, their neighbors include Cicero c Cain and Mary Wheeler cain. They had a son John WM Cain b- 1866. This puzzled my for a year. I didn't have parent names for my gt grandfather and all of the info I had said WM Jonathan Cain. So, How come there was no other boy his age with the same name living in Gwinnett GA if he was born and raised there? Well, I had someone from Merced County,CA transcribe his death certificate and it listed who his parents were. It confirmed that Cicero C Cain and Mary Wheeler Cain were indeed his parents. That means that the person doing the 1880 census put donw the wrong b date and transpossed his name. His name was WM Jonathan Cain.He is even listed as J J Cain in the History of Gwinnett gA book. He is also listed on his marriage certificate as W J J Cain. I think the second J may be James after James Cain his grandfather, Cicero's father. All of the Cain info that I found on John Manning Cain sites only had Cicero Columbus Cain as m- Mary E Wheeler. they didn't show who their kids were or their families. I now have my info to add and a mystery solved. If anyone is interested in the info that I have please email me. Lisa

Cephus married Rhoda RIGGS Nov 9,1888 in Hartsell,(Morgan County) Ala. Cephus later married Eva CHRISTENBERRY. Any information any one may have on the COLLIER family would be greatly appriciated.

I am interested in my EVANS family history. My great-grandmother, ROSALIE EVANS TOLLESON (1883-1985) was buried in a small, hard-to-find country cemetery called Evans Chapel, located on the outskirts of Heflin. Her parents, husband and two of her children were buried there. When I visited two years ago, I saw several other graves that were too dark to read, and were in a weeded area (stupid me---I was wearing a sundress and sandals). I would like to know if anyone has a complete list of all of the individuals buried there. I live in Arizona, so I won't be in a position to visit again for a while.

Adams, who was born in Alabama in 1887, and migrated into Madison County from Marshall County around the turn of the century. -Shannon Dale Byrd 26598 Alabama Hwy 71 Flat Rock, AL 35966 1-256-632-6784

Looking for any information on a Sara RILEY or O'RILEY who would probably have lived in or near Borden Springs/Piedmont around 1868. She would have been of childbearing age, probably young. She may have had a brother named Will who married a PENCE. She may have borne a child by Andy WILLIAMS of the same area. Andy was married to Nicie PENCE at the time, however there is evidence to suggest that Sara was the mother of Andy's son, John Elliott WILLIAMS. At least, that is the information on John Elliott's death certificate. I realize death certificates can be wrong, but my oldest surviving descendant of this family swears that the person who gave the information for the death certificate wouldn't have just 'made that up.' Can anybody shed any light on this puzzle?

Sarah A. PUTMAN married Rufus WHEELER 6 October 1849. She is listed back home with her parents in the Hiram PUTMAN household as a widow on the 1850 Benton County, Alabama census. My paternal ggrandmother, Sarah A. WHEELER, born in Cleburne County, Alabama, married Abselom KEITH January 13, 1856 in Carroll County, Georgia. Their son, William Clayton KEITH was born in Cleburne County, Alabama in 1866. In 1869 Abselom KEITH married Nancy BULLARD, so either Sarah died or they divorced. Abselom lived in Jefferson County, Alabama during the later years of his life. One family story is that Sarah A. WHEELER KEITH is buried on the banks of the Tennessee River. I have been searching for information on Sarah A. WHEELER for several years now and I wonder if Sarah A. PUTMAN who married Rufus WHEELER could have married Abselom KEITH after Rufus WHEELER'S death. Any bit of information will be so appreciated.

I would like information concerning the MARKS family living in Cleburne Alabama in an area known as Pine Thicket according to the 1880 census. My maternal great grandfather Nathan Thomas MARKS was married at that time to Aramintha (maiden name:LANGSTON). Between 1880 and 1900 he left that area and married again and died in Georgia in 1911 or 1912. I would like any information on Aramintha. Did she remain in that area and die there or did she die prior to his leaving? Family history is that he left her for the next wife. Since the 1890 census records were destroyed, I have run into a dead end and can find no history of Aramintha beyond that point. All of the people with some memory of events have mostly all passed on now.

I am looking for info on a Martha Earp Howell. I believe she was born in 1836. She is listed in the 1880 census of Oak Level, Alabama as a widow. I believe she was married to Hudson Howell and her children were: Emmor, Wm. R., Augusty, & Hudsina. She also had a niece living with her by the name of Mattie Earp. I need to know who the parents of Martha were. Her brother, Joseph, I think was the father of Mattie (Martha Caroline) Earp or Arp. I can't find a Mother's name for Mattie. Also, I would like to know where Martha and her husband is buried. Any info would be appreciated. Carolyn Ponder

BURGESS: To all those hard working folks who transcribed the newspapers (and lots of other files): Thank you, thank you, thank you. After 10 years of searching I finally found my g-grandfather's date of death. But, genealogy research remains true to form: you learn one thing, then 10 more mysteries pop up. Such is my case, so I hope someone can help clear up additional questions. I found the obituary of W.L. (William Langford) BURGESS in "The Cleburne News", Thursday, July 2, 1925. It states that W.L. BURGESS was survived by two sons: ELBERT BURGESS, ALBERT BURGESS, and two daughters: MRS. B.D. OWEN and MRS. W.M. AUSTIN, both of Edwardsville. In my records I have only one daughter, ATHIE BURGESS, and she married JOHN T. POLLARD in 1887. Is one of the women mentioned in the obit Athie's second marriage? Who is the other woman? Could the obit be wrong (I know there are often errors in newspaper notices)? Another son, WILLIAM A. BURGESS was not mentioned; did he predecease his father? Hope these names ring a bell with someone out there. Thanks, Lynn Hulett

Looking for any informatin on the family of Alexander L. WILLIAMSON. According to Clara Stovall, The Stovalls and Williamson families moved from Newnan, Coweta County, Georgia and settled in Clay County, Alabama. After some time there, they moved to Westtobga, Chulafinee, Cleburne County, Alabama. Alexander's daughter Ellen, married into the Stovall family. Other families that I have been able to find close ties with are the Haywoods, and Turners. I have found in a marriage listing from Coweta, County Georgia, that a Alexander Williamson and a Sarah Carter were married on Jan 10, 1834. Alexander would have been about 21. Georgia: Coweta County: Marriages, 1827-1849, A - Z CARTER SARAH WILLIAMSON ALEXANDER, R 1832, 10-Jan This is the only time that I have found him with middle initial "R", this may be a misprint.

Statewide recording of marriages began in 1936; prior to that time, they were recorded at the county. Not all records are complete. Each county had vital events which went unrecorded or records which were lost or damaged. Many courthouses have burned and the records they contained were lost. Benjamin Williamson writes via internet that; Alexander had 2 brothers, Ruben and Benjamin Williamson. You can find the three living close to each other in Carroll Co. Ga. during the 1840 Ga. Census.

In 1840 Reuben, Benjamin, and Alexander were all living in the 682 district of Carroll. They all drew land initially in Coweta. There seem to be too many similarities to be coincidence.

PEGGY HUGHES Wed Oct 18 11:13:35 2006
SMITH-CRUMPTON I am researching the JEHU CRUMPTON FAMILY and the ROBERT H. SMITH FAMILY. ROBERT SMITH(b. 1808, SC) married SARAH "SALLY" CRUMPTON. Their oldest son was my ancestor. He was WILLIAM ENOCH H. SMITH, b.18 -d. CIVIL WAR. He married SARAH COUCH, daughter of JOSEPH COUCH. (see the 1850, 1860, 1870, RANDOLPH and CLEBURNE, AL CENSUS RECORDS).ENOCH and SARAH had five children: JOSEPH ELBERT "JOE TURK", MARY LUCINDA, NANCY, MALINDA, and SARAH.I think that ROBERT SMITH was a son of GEORGE SMITH and NANCY COLLIER. Here again, look at the 1850 Census records for RANDOLPH COUNTY, AL. It's all there. The Smiths and Collier Families, along with the Crumpton Families are all along the Macedonia Road from LOST CREEK to MACEDONIA!!!!! Study the 1860 Randolph Census. ENOCH SMITH and SALLY COUCH along with their five little children must have recently arrived in the area, because they are in the household with ROBERT and SALLY. Please E-MAIL me if you want additional info. I was born in a house on the GA/AL Stateline Rd. where four generations of my family lived. I know the area like the back of my hand. If I can help you, please let me know. PEGGY

Sam placed all the children in the Talladega orphanage. My father was adopted. I'm having trouble trying to find anyone who may remember them. I had been told that Lula Bell may have been a Robinson, a Rowe, or a Helton but that is not concrete. Also she may have been native american. Thanks in advance. K. Butler

I know my great-great grandparents were married at "nixon's" in Cleburne co. by a Justice of the Peace. (I would like to also know what "Nixon's" was?) After several years of marriage and several children, John F. THOMPSON left his family in Tennessee and they never heard from him again. This was around 1906-1908. We have information where his sons Sherman and Marion Richard THOMPSON were looking for him in this same area several years after he disappeared. I am in the process of trying to find what happened to John Farley THOMPSON, Jr or to any of his family - mom, dad, siblings, etc. that may have lived in the area. John Farley Thompson had 7 legal names so he may have used some of his other names when he disappeared. There was also some report that he sold land that the city of Rome, GA wanted and he ended up in court and won the case. (This story may or may not be true?!?!) There is a report that the land actually belonged to his wife, Clara HIGHTOWER, a native American from that area. I am also looking for information regarding her family. Thanks for any help you can give me!

Suzanne Hammitt Wed Jul 28 15:08:02 2010
Does anyone have information on people in Cleburne COunty named HAMMITT ? My GG-GPs, Dr. Charles Jefferson Hammitt and Susan Ann Pollack Kincey Hammitt, lived in Edwardsville to run the old Edwardsville School (Methodist-Episcopal-owned) around 1910 for one year. My G-GPs, (their son) Charles Malcolm Hammitt and new wife Hattie Franklin Johnson Hammitt, lived there that year as well, and their firstborn son (my GF), Carl Owen Hammitt, was born 6-18-1910 in Edwardsville. Charles Malcolm Hammitt lived there "to run my uncle's printing press" (according to a letter he wrote). I have a hunch that the uncle might be E.B. Hammitt, the affluent businessman affiliated with the Fruithurst winery (originally from Massachusetts), but cannot find needed evidence/links. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks:)

I am searching for descendants of Tillman Pruitt (1833-1894); Matilda Pruitt Johnson (1836-?) and Eli Pruitt (1840-?) who came to Cleburne Co, AL just after Civil War. Tillman settled around the Piney Woods area and belonged to Piney Woods Primitive Baptist Church. They were born in SC and their father, William Pruitt, migrated to Cherokee Co, GEORGIA around 1842. Want to meet some East AL cousins and exchange info. Donald Pruitt
