Does anyone know ANYTHING about the J. Monroe Hill
listed as deceased 1935?
My gggrandfather was Andrew Monroe Hill who married 1856 at Aberdeen, MS
left his wife and young son Cason Monroe Hill at Smithville, MS, before 1860
census and was last seen "riding toward AL" as the family story went and was
never heard from again.
Monroe is a middle name passed down in each generation of this family and
this caught my attention.
I believe Andrew's grandfather to be Hardy Chamness/Chambless of Marion Co.
who married a younger 2nd wife, Anne Williams, from the Aberdeen, MS, area.
I know David Williams m. Melinda ORear --dau. of Jessie ORear--in Aberdeen,
MS and they moved to Walker Co., AL, where she had grown up.
Could there have been a connection here that Andrew Monroe Hill came a
couple of counties over and started a new life?
His oldest grandson by Cason was named James Monroe Hill. Maybe means
nothing, but I'm interested in any clues as to the below Hill deaths that
include J. Monroe Hill.
I'm looking for any information (for Walker Co.) on the family of
Francis Marion England and Delia Fox (Jones) England, married 18 October
1866 in Jasper, AL. Delia and her son John F. died of measles in 1887 and
are buried together in a wooded cemetery ("Old Pocohontas") in Eldridge, AL.
Delia was born 1845, by her tombstone dates. I found their gravesite last
Francis Marion England was born February, 1847, died in 1933 in Cullman Co.
He was a Union veteran of the 1st Alabama Cavalry. His parents were John
England and Katherine "Katie" (Blevins) England of Cedar Plains, Morgan
Francis Marion and Delia had the following children in the Census of 1880:
Elizabeth England born 1867
Richard Elonzo England born 14 Oct. 1871, died 9 Nov. 1946, Cullman Co.
Emma England born 1872
Floyd England born 1875
Callie England born 1878, died of TB, Cullman Co.
William Monte "Willie" England born 1 August 1880, died 14 October 1959,
Fred England born 1885
John F. England born 1875/6, died of measles, 1887, Eldridge, AL.
Francis Marion England married for the second time to Ella McElroy (we
think) in Arley, AL in 1895 in a service conducted by Rev. Crumpton. Ella
died in 1907 and is supposed to be buried in Cordova, AL, but that needs to
be confirmed and the exact cemetery identified. No children resulted from
this union, hence no one living in our family is related to Ella, but is
know helps fill out what is known about Francis Marion England. He married
for the 3rd and final time to Carrie Bradford (1880 - 1963) in Cullman
Thank you for any help you can pass along on these folks.

Looking for information on the family of
PEACH BUD STRICKLAND, born 2 Apr 1852, Cherokee Co., AL; died 7 Aug
1920, Carbon Hill, Walker Co., AL; married 10 Dec 1874, Calhoun Co., AL,
to Mary Elizabeth Carroll. She was born May 1858, SC; died 31 Dec
He was the son of SIMON STRICKLAND and
CAROLINE (maiden name unknown), who were on the 1850 US Census in
Cherokee Co., AL. It is uncertain whether his father died or deserted
his family. Simon was born 1825, Johnston Co., NC. In 1850, they were
living next door to his parents, JAMES STRICKLAND (born 29 Dec 1795
either in Nash or Johnston Co., NC - or born on the ship to America as
his youngest son would later write. James married CELAH HORN on 31 Jul
1815, Johnston Co., NC. She was ten years older, born 1785, NC,
probably a daughter of JOEL HORN, SR.
By the 1860 US Census in Walker Co., AL,
CAROLINE had remarried to JESSE W. DOBBINS, born abt 1832, St. Clair or
Cherokee Co., AL. Her Strickland children were erroneously identified
as Dobbins. Jesse was a son of JAMES B(ARTLY) DOBBINS and ELIZABETH
HUGHES. He was also the brother to LYDIA MYRA ELIZABETH DOBBINS, who
had married BARDEN STRICKLAND, a brother to SIMON STRICKLAND and a
brother to JAMES HUGHES DOBBINS, both families moving earlier to Fayette
and Walker Cos., AL, after the Civil War. Jesse W. Dobbins survived
the Civil War, and the family moved to Calhoun Co., AL. However, by the
1870 census, he was no longer with the family. It is believed the
couple had separated, and he might have remarried. Caroline was on
the 1870 US Census as head of household. Again, her Strickland children
were erroneously listed as Dobbins.
By the 1880 U.S. Census, Caroline
Dobbins had moved to St. Clair Co., AL with some of the children by both
marriages. Her oldest son, James Strickland, was married and living

"When was Mt Zion church founded?
Are you talking about Old Zion Church near Saragossa? Its off
Hway 5 north near the bp station. Alot of people from out of state and
area have referred to it as Mt Zion so I was just wondering if indeed it
is Old Zion that you are referring to.
The current Methodist Church across the street from the cemetery isn't
the original church. The original church actually sat in the edge of the
graveyard under the big oak trees pretty close to where the flag pole
and the plaque are now. It was Old Zion Primitive Baptist Church. In the
early 1980's it was finally disassembled by a cousin of mine and moved
to his backyard and used as storage. If my memory serves me right it was
built circa 1920. The church before that was a log structure that my grt
grandfather William Floyd Dunkin/Duncan told me had burned when he was a
small child and he said it was very old but no one I know remembers the
build year. So if going by the oldest graves in the cemetery I would
assume sometime around the period of 1845-1860. It was also a Primitive
Baptist and that seems logical considering the next church to replace it
and even in the exact location was indeed a Primitive Baptist. The only
church there now is Old Zion Methodist and a much newer!
Church of God across the street that actually used the old Primitive
Baptist Church building my cousin had before they built there new one.
I have many many family members buried at Old Zion. My grtgrandfather
some years ago donated a acre or so to the existing graveyard and then
they built the small road around it as you see now.
I hope this helps some I wish that I could be more specific. I grew up
about 100 yards from the cemetery/church

Looking for information on B. P. "SLIM"
YOUNG, age unknown. He sold my father, CARTER BARTLY STRICKLAND
a Bugle said to have been used during the Civil War, for a nominal
free. My father had admired the horn for numerous years when SLIM used
it when they went fox hunting in Walker Co., AL. All I know is that he
was older that my father, who died age 90 in 2002. I am trying to find
out where SLIM acquired the bugle. SLIM had married a widow, who had
one daughter and SLIM adopted the daughter's child. Otherwise, he had
no other children as far as I know.
Where was SLIM buried? Who was his
parents, siblings, etc.

Does anyone know any history on Coke
Oven Hill, between West Jasper and the Parrish Highway Alabama?
There were several large brick ovens built there. The ovens must have
been active at the time the railroad was built there as the railroad
makes a diverted loop to the ovens before straightening out again.
- When was the railroad built?
- Was the coke produced during
the Civil War?
- Where can I find information on
The ovens appear to be on land that was
first acquired on land that William Henry Musgrove purchase land
in Walker Co., AL in 1822 (who married Sarah Fowler in Blount Co., AL;
but never lived on the land in Walker County, remaining in Blount Co.,
William Henry Musgrove was the son of
William T. Musgrove and Nancy Tate, who apparently moved on his
son's land along with several of his children. Elizabeth S. Musgrove
(who married John Norris); Dr. Edward Gordon Musgrove (who was already
married to Rachael Hickland); Phillip Trapnell Musgrove (who married
Rosannah J. Patton and moved first to Mississippi, then to Arkansas);
and Margaret Musgrove (who married Lewis Watson Bradley).
Two other of William T. and Nancy Tate's
children also remained in Blount Co., AL, were: oldest son, John

You can write this lady for any
assistance that may be available. The below is an explanation as to the
reason some death certificates are not available. Susette's e-mail address
In 1912 Alabama just was not very good at keeping death
records. The state did not become 98% compliant until the 1920s. It is
possible that there is one for him but I just don't see him listed. You
could try looking for a grave stone. If he owned property there may be a
will or probate records.

My father (deceased 1984) lost his arm in January 1942 in
a grist mill accident in Carbon Hill. He was hospitalized and treated at the
hospital located in downtown Jasper. I don't know the name, but his brother
tells me that the hospital building is still there. Does anyone know
where old hospital records may have been taken when the hospitals closed?
Walker Baptist states that there records only go back to 1950s.
I would believe that it was indeed Community Hospital and not
Peoples considering the time frame but I could be wrong. What makes me
believe it was Community Hospital is because that building is still standing
whereas Peoples was demolished and a community center placed in its stead.
The old Community Hospital is located next to the Adam Bishop Center and if
I am not mistaken is a part of the Mental Health Center now. Call the Adam
Bishop Center maybe they can help you. To get to the old Community Hospital
building Turn at the traffic light at Captain Dees towards downtown Jasper.
Go through two four way stops and when you reach the curve after the second
take the right in the curve it should be about a block or so on your right.
The November 6, 1850 census report for District 12, Walker County, AL

William, son age 19 born TN
Comfort, dau age 15 born AL
Robert A., son age 10 born AL
Sarah F., dau age 08 born AL
Elizabeth M. dau age 04 born AL **
In the 1860 census report for this family, Elizabeth M. is listed as

Robert, age 67, shoemaker; Elizabeth, wife, age 57; Robert A., age 19; Sarah
F., age 17; and Malinda R., age 13 (presumably her name must have been
Elizabeth Malinda Ruena Benson).
The son, William Benson, age 29 was living in the Eastern Division,
Arkadelphia P.O. with his wife, Hester A., age 23, Elizabeth, a daughter
aged 3, and William B., a son age 10 months.

of the envelope. I have a post card much like the one you
have. It looks to be watercolored and has the inscription
"Public School Building, Jasper, Ala." and is post marked
1914. Also, here is a copy of a card that belonged to
my Grandmother's father. I can not find any information
about this hotel. I know that he died January of 1899 in
North Carolina. He moved there sometime after my
grandmother's birth in Birmingham in December of 1897.
Perhaps someone knows where information on this hotel might
be found. My Great-grandmother died in Walker County in
1923. Her death certificate has her address at time of
death as "Beat 31". A "Registration District No. 640031"
and a "Registered No. 73" is also on there. Where can I
find out where she died, using this information? Thanks and
I hope someone else will enjoy the commencement program,
I am looking for a Youngblood family that lived in Walker
county from around 1900 to 1930 . I found the father, Melvin Y. on
a census and it has his kids listed , I didn't know it was mine till
I happened to be given a picture of 4 children with one of
their names on the back . Lela which is Melvin's daughter and
then when I looked at the census the kids in the picture were
named and the ages seem to correct for the picture . I am hoping
to find a death for Melvin and possible a grave site . I am also
looking for one of his sons John Wesley Youngblood and a Jewel D.
Youngblood ... sister they are listed in the 1930 census with
their mother Alice Youngblood , hoping to find marriage info.
Please any help would be greatly appreciated
