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.

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.

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

I am trying to find out any information on my late grandfather Sam Rudd and grandmother Lula Bell. They lived around the Cleburne/Talladega area in the early 1900's. He married Lula Bell who already had two or three children and she and Sam had Frank, Jesse, TJ, Nellie, and Lula Bell died in childbirth having my father. 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

PALMER,MALONE (home burned, probably moved afterward) TORRENCE/TORRANCE (Richard only given name, dau Alice also) CHAPPELL, Martha Amanda (redhead, married John W. MALONE, had twins plus)all 1800s dates for above familes in Cleburne Co. Death date needed for Alice (Alus)(nee' TORRANCE) PALMER and infant son Sherman,(she was married to Joseph Elijah PALMER) she & baby "disappeared" sometime after Sherman's birth (1892 -1894, more probably the later). Have heard of adult and infant skeletons discovered in a well years later, but spouse seems to have remarried (14 Jan 1904) so some death date was probably used. Would also like birth years on 4 children of Joseph E. and Orader (nee' MOORE) PALMER.(early 1900s dates)
