GRAHAM, MALTBY posted by Jan Mason on Tuesday, January 22, 2002

Frank George GRAHAM was born in New Brunswick, Canada in 1866. He married Mary Edith MALTBY b. 1870, also born in New Brunswick, Canada, in 1893. According his brothers obituary, Frank was living in Cleburne, Alabama in 1935. Frank and Mary Edith had at least two sons: Arthur Erroll GRAHAM b. 1895 in New Brunswick and Charles Maltby GRAHAM b. 1896 in New Brunswick. I believe the family had left New Brunswick by 1900. Any information on this family would be very welcome.

I don't know who her Mother was. She was listed in the 1880 census as living with a Martha HOWELL. She was the niece of Martha HOWELL. She married William Augustus (Gus) McCURDY on 8-27-1889 or 9-1-1889. I found 2 dates for this marriage which took place in Heflin, Alabama.

TERRELL posted by Ricky E. Terrell on Tuesday, March 12, 2002

Searching for any, repeat any, information about Joseph E. TERRELL, b.c1825 and family. Joseph lived in the Randolph County portion of what is now Cleburne County. He lived in the Fruithurst and/or Abernathy Community. The census for 1850 list Randolph,1870 list Wedowee, Randolph and 1880, Township 15 Range 12. His family included; wife, Nancy E. TERRELL (suspected buried in Old Arab Cemetary, Arab, AL.), twin daughters Martha and Nancy b.c1844, dau Matilita b.c1846, dau Mary M. b. c1848, sons Doctor (name, not profession) J. b. c1851 and William Richmond b. Dec 1854. I know Doctor J. and William remained in Cleburne County until at least the 1920 census. Joseph is buried in the Begauld/St. Bethel Cemetary on a pulp wood mountain in Cleburne County. Joseph service in the Civil War is mixed. His tombstone indicates that he served with Company K, 9th Mississippi Infantry. Official Records (Application for Pensions) indicate he served with Companies A & B 8th Mississippi or Alabama Infantry and was wounded at Pollard, Mississippi or Alabama, correctly Alabama. My best guess is that he lived until at least the 1900, as my last official knowledge of him was 10 August 1895. The period most interested in is 1840 to 1910. If anyone can provide any clues I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks Rick Terrell

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

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

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.

Bill Turner Sat Nov 30 09:59:56 2002
Seeking help to find my grandfather, William Thomas TURNER, b. abt 1855 in AL. Believed to be son of Andrew Jackson Turner (b. abt 1830) and wife Matilda HOPPER found in Randolph Co., AL in 1850 and 1860. Census lists the name "Jesse", but when family is found in Winston/Cullman Co., 1870 and thereafter, "William Thomas" replaces the name "Jesse". Unable to find any direct descendants of A.J. and Matilda. A.J. is believed to have been the son of John M. Turner of Calhoun co. Perhaps some distant cousins in Randolph, Calhoun or Cleburne Cos. have info on A.J.'s family dating back to 1850. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Seeking information on the ADAMS family who were enumerated in the Sugar Hill area of Cleburne County, Alabama, in the 1880 US Federal Census, under the head of J.H. Adams. Also enumerated are Adams' wife, Mary M.; and six children - Howell A, James, Alonzo, William, Walter, and Malissa. I believe this James is my ancestor, James T. 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
