Does anyone have any Lucas connection to Franklin Co or Henry Co, AL? Looking for info on Samuel Lucas & his son Lemuel J.(I.?) listed in 1840 census of Franklin Co, AL. I think Samuel's wife may have died there. Samuel is listed in 1830 Henry Co, AL census & Sanuel L. (or Lemuel J.) married Eliza A. Hilman in Henry Co, AL on 22 Aug 1837. Think Samuel listed in 1850 Chickasaw Co, MS with children Lucinda, John, Irvin & another one, Mary living with his son Lemuel J. in Tishomingo Co, MS is the same one. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Would like to locate the grave of Pumphret Malone, somewhere in Franklin County, most likely near the Mississippi line near what used to be Malone, Alabama. Could be in what is now Colbert County (old Indian territory). Have found the grave of his brother, James Malone, near Frankfort, as well as those of his sister's family, Amy Malone Hester. These three families came from what is now Person Co., NC, about 1817. This is my GGG grandfather.

I am trying to find the maiden name of my great great grandmother Lucinda C. Walker. She married my gggrandfather Wilburn Walker. It is said that she was Native American and from Cherokee, AL. I know that they both lived and died in Franklin County. They were the parents of my ggrandmother Evaline WAlker who married William B. James. In the 1880 census they have a Martha Crouch living with them. I am wondering if the "C" in Lucinda's name may be for her maiden name and maybe it was Crouch and Martha could have been her sister. I would appreciate any information that anyone may have about the Walker's and James in Franklin County. My Grandfather was Drewey G. James who was married to Florence Fisher. Her parents were William Bud Fisher and Laura Yocum Fisher. Would appreciate any information on the Fisher's and Yocum's also. Thanks ever so much. Carlene Grimes ccgrimes@bellsouth.net

WHITE HILL: Seeking to share information on the WHITE family of Franklin CO AL. Samuel B. WHITE was in Franklin Co as early as 1818 and an early leader in the Methodist Church. His father, Elijah WHITE, and his uncle, Elisha WHITE, also came to AL and were veterans of the Revolution. Capt. John WHITE (died in Caroline Co.

His daughter, Caroline WHITE HILL (wife of John HILL, mother of Chilion Elliot HILL, and grandmother of Chilion Littleton HILL) came to Franklin Co. AL about 1835. Nelson Harris WHITE of Moulton (Lawrence Co AL) was Capt. John WHITE' s son. He ran a classical school in Courtland and edited (or possibly it was his son, also named Nelson Harris WHITE) the newspaper there.

My GGG Grandfather, William Finney (b. 1821), lived in Franklin Co. in 1860, and between Franklin and Lawrence Counties for, I believe, the rest of his life.

David and Betsey Ann RUSSELL buried in Bonds Cemetery. David b. 1807 d. 1868. Betsey ann b. 1808 d. 185?. 1860 Franklin Co. Census indicates this family as David age 57 born SC, Betsy A. age 57 b. SC, Mary J. age 12 b. Ala, Samuel age 12 b. Ala and Samuel Moody age 14 b. Ala. I believe the Mary Jane to be my great grandmother. What hapened to Samuel who seems to be a twin. Also, is anyone researching the Moody family. Is the Samuel Moody related to the Russell family. If ages are right it means that Betsy would have been 45 when the twins were born. I wonder if David and Betsy may be the grandparents. Would like to hear from anyone working on this RUSSELL family. Have been unable to find them in the 1850 census. Thanks Micki Burleson, Granbury Tx

John Louis Steele Sat Jun 16 09:37:55 2001
Looking for my Steele, Steel ancestors who were suppose to have been in the Franklin County area in the mid to late 1800's. I have traced my GGrandfather, Wick Steel to this area. His parents were suppose to have been James and Martha Steel. Chris Ozbirn at the Russellville Library looked up several names for me while I was there, but nothing has rang a bell yet. I know there are several families in the area with both spellings of the name. If anyone would have any information that would help me, I would appreciate it very much. According to records that I have my GGrandfather would have been born around 1857 and he was moved to the Posey County, Indiana area by the late 1870's. That is really about all I know about him.
