possiible that his ancestors

My great grandfather, Harrison Bray, is supposed to
be buried somewhere in Augusta, Georgia. One relative vaguely remembers
visiting the cemetery where he was buried, but no
living descendants remember where in Augusta. One descendant thinks she
remembers that there was a mix up in the graves. Harrison
was still alive in 1940 as he is on the 1940 Clarke
census. He went to live with relatives in Augusta
in his later
years. His wife died in Charleston, SC, 1955 and she
was a widow.
Harrison was born in the 1870's if his age on census
correct. It varies with 10 years on assorted census
his a brick wall or what? :)

SC around 1822/23. There he had been married to Rachel Cox and they had
a large family. He is next found in Edgefield county with Mary Ann Davis.

have a large family and are the head of most of the Bridwell family from

married Margaret King in Richmond Co. on 10 Jul 1835. I believe Mary Ann's

I am desperately trying to find some information
on my g-g-g-great uncle - Benjamin Headden. He lived in Augusta around
1840 and was supposed to have been a fairly well-known artist in the area.
Joseph J. McQuade <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Several years ago, I corresponded with Ed Cashin who
told me he had written about Benjamin in his book on the history of Augusta,
but he was unable to help with a question I had.
Here is all the info I have on Benjamin:
According to family history, he won a nation-wide
contest for painting the best life-size portrait of George Washington on
his white horse. Family stories say the painting hung in the Augusta
City Hall. Benjamin's nephew and great niece said they saw
it on visis to Augusta. The niece visited in 1935.
According to an article in a Greenville, SC newspaper,
Benjamin was killed in train wreck somewhere around Greensboro, GA.
He was almost 27 at the time of his death. The following is an excerp
from the article:
"...the deceased was a native of Greenville, S.C.,
where he has left an aged father, mother, brothers, sisters, and other
relatives...He had established...fame in his profession as an artist, seldom
equalled, never surpassed..."
According to the article, he had been married for
7 months. The article states that "an embankment gave way, the train
plunged into the chasm, and several were injured, but Mr. Headden's death
is the only one mentioned."
About 29 years ago, I acquired a painting that I am
pretty sure was one of Benjamin's - it was located in a back closet at
the Headden homeplace in Cassville, GA where my g-g-great granfather William
lived after the Civil War. HIs daughter had saved the painting along
with portraits of William and his wife when the federal troops burned the
house. William and Benjamin were brothers. A distant cousin
in West Tennessee has 3 more portraits - Benjamin's parents and a cousin.
I would like to know if the Washington painting exists
and if there is any information about Benjamin. I have not been able
to locate a copy of the Cashin book
Thanks for any information anyone might be able to

was all that rare at that time,

come to live with his son in his later years and be buried there in Augusta,
even maybe in Westover but I cannot get any verification. Any information
would be helpful.
