Hello,
My name is Angelia Woodley. George W Woodley is my great-great grandfather. My line is through his son Melvin, and Melvin's son Melvin Wilson Woodley who is my grandfather. I was just curious to who you are and if you have any pictures or information to share. I do have some old what we think are Woodley pictures that I don't mind sharing. We are not sure if they really belong to the Woodley side or not. My papaw was going through dementia when I started my journey. He gave me all these wonderful photos, but then he could not tell me who the people were. I would not mind sharing and seeing if you knew any of these people!
Thank you,
Angelia
oh and also if you have any information on John Woodle and his parents...I really would appreciate it! I find myself stuck!

my name is Angelia Woodley. William Green is my 4X great grand-father. I was curious to see if you found any information on him or his parents. Any information would be appreciated. Also I have information from William Green, his son George W and up if you are needing it.
Thank you,
Angelia

Kimberly, I found the Mashburn Cemetery on my last trip to the area and got my pictures. Thank you so much for offering! It is in a field behind a farmhouse and a helpful neighbor of his called the owner and smoothed the way for our visit.



Re: Mashburn Cemetery near Oxford

Are you wanting someone to photograph the headstones for you? Because I only live about 30 minutes from there. Please let me know if I can help you out.
Thanks



Re: Richmond Parton, Calhoun (Benton) Co., AL, 1840

Henry Baker married Sarah Ann Parton on Jan 27, 1836 in Calhoun county, Alabama (formerly Benton county). I have a copy of the marriage license. Henry Baker is listed in the 1840 Benton county, Alabama census. I hope you can see this as your post was years ago. I am doing research for a friend in which Henry Baker is her direct ancestor.



Re: Newspaper lookup please_Update

Hi,

There is a volunteer in Calhoun County who will do lookups at the local library which has an Alabama Room (genealogy). You'll find his/her contact info at www.gengathering.com, Alabama, Calhoun County. You must sign in to find contact info.

If that doesn't work out, you can contact the Public Library of Anniston-
Calhoun County, http://publibann.weebly.com/alabama-room.html. Successful Searching!



Re: Newspaper lookup please_Update

2017-08-30 15:31:31Z

New information indicates Charles may have been born in 1869 instead of 1879. Also he is buried in the Eagles (F.O.E.) section of the cemetery so most likely member of that fraternal order instead of the Elks.

Newspaper lookup please

2017-08-29 18:02:04Z

I am seeking help on finding information on my grandparents who resided in Calhoun county probably in Anniston. I am hoping that someone could do a newspaper search concerning their marriage in 1903 and his death in 1913. The information I have is as follows:

Charles (aka Charley) Blocker, born about 1879 in Kentucky, died by suicide in Houston, Texas on 10 Oct 1913. He had just moved to Houston from Alabama a few weeks before his death. He left behind his widow Ella (aka Ellie) Glover Blocker and 6 children: Geraldine, Howard, Charlotte, Marie, Virginia, and Evelyn who was only 11 days old. The news article regarding his death stated “Blocker was a member of the Elks Lodge of Anniston, Ala., and had been a man of considerable means until stricken with illness”.

Charles W. Blocker married Ellie Glover on 27 Jan 1903 in Calhoun county. I hope that there is an announcement regarding this event in the newspaper perhaps listing their parents.

Charles Blocker and wife Ella (aka Ellie) appear on the 1910 census living in Anniston. He is listed as the manager of a Billiard Room.

Any information or suggestions will be appreciated,

Susanne Brown

Maybe more helpful if you could start tracking down his 2 great grandmothers living relatives see if anyone know who place new marker. Check to see if this cemetery at church or near community ask some of residents if they know anything about this grave. also could place ad in local newspaper asking questions about this grave.

Help on Mortuaries in Calhoun County

2017-02-24 02:48:16Z

We found my husband's great-great-grandmother (Elizabeth Faulkner Morgan) buried at Old Davistown Cemetery in Calhoun County. The grave is marked with a "new" marker (she died in 1890 but the marker is definitely a second half of the 20th century marker). I wondered if anyone familiar with Calhoun County might recommend who we might try contacting to see whether there are any sales records on who bought this grave marker. Thanks for any thoughts!

Re: Marriages 1951 - Cain

2015-12-27 02:48:58Z

Thanks for the response. I know the information you give as I am the one that posted. But New Orleans or the State of Louisiana show records of them getting married (that I have found). My mother and father are both buried in Monroe, LA. I never thought about any of this ancestry while she was alive to ask the questions.



Re: Marriages 1951 - Cain

2015-12-27 00:27:07Z

On Find Grave(free site) you will find his grave also grave of Gloria Rita St. Pierre Warren. George Boesel Cain buried in Monroe, Quachita Parish, Gloria buried in St. Mary parish. Give his parents and list of his siblings. On FamilySearch.org(free site)someone has posted information on this family, listing they married in 1951 in New Orleans.



Marriages 1951 - Cain

2015-12-26 19:41:25Z

My father (whom passed away in 1964) moved from the New Orleans, LA area the the Birmingham area when he was a child. He and my mother were married and divorced to first their spouses in late '40 early '50's. My parents got married sometime in (I think) 51/52. Louisiana has no record of a marriage but I found an index here on Ancestry for a George B Cain in Calhoun. But I can't find mothers name or birth dates. So guess I don't understand how the index is supposed to work. Mother was Gloria Rita St Pierre or my show up as Dozar (1st husband). If anyone could help me or shed some light on this I would be thankful.

Re: Calhoun County Civil War Soldiers

Thanks! That was a great hint! I found at least one of the Landers, John Thomas Landers, 7th Alabama Company B. Two others look like his brothers, which my information tells me also died at Shiloh, but the company they are listed with, 30th Alabama Co. E is not formed until after the battle of Shiloh. I'm going to operate under the assumption they also were in 7th Alabama B and see if I can find a muster roll for it.

Hi,

I looked in Ancestry and FamilySearch but didn't find their military records. There is an article about Finding Your Civil War Ancestor, www.nps.gov/gett/learn/historyculture/ancestor-search.htm which might be helpful. Successful Searching!



Re: Henry Murray: Rabbittown, Calhoun County

2015-12-04 12:48:08Z

NOTE -
There is a 20 yr. gap in the census records [1880 - 1900] as the 1890 census was burned in the 1920's. Add 20 yrs to everyone's 1880 age for the 1900 census.

I’m not related to any member of this family.


Census records do not record the “specific locality” of a person’s birth.
Census records only record where a person was born – state or country.
Census records record where a person was living when the census taker came by.


1940 is the last available census at this time.

Facts you should know about the early census records –

All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"
Immigration date is not recorded

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members with their birthplaces

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++


format of early census records -
1830 -
Name: Henry Murray
Home in 1830 (City, County, State): Company District 64, Burke, Georgia
Free White Persons - Males - Under 5: 2
Free White Persons - Males - 5 thru 9: 1

Henry Murray: Rabbittown, Calhoun County

2015-12-04 03:28:32Z

I am searching for information on Henry Murray, born abt 1802 in North Carolina and died in 1881 in Calhoun County. He is buried in the Rabbittown cemetery. He was married to Jane Wise in 1827 in Butts Co., GA. Henry is my roadblock; I have not found a connection to his father and mother. Some trees show his father as James P. Murray; however, I have not been able to connect him.

My son-in-law is a direct descendant of John (1810-1856) and Mary (1816-1880) Landers of Calhoun County. Putting together information from Find-a-Grave and ancestry.com trees, I'm guessing they lost four sons (William J., John Thomas, Alfred M. and Joseph Benjamin) in the battle of Shiloh. I'd like to be able to pin down their military records. Does anyone have hints as to what unit(s) they served?

2015-10-16 02:44:45Z

Wasn't sure if you knew but Mary Caldonia Clifton Arnold son name spelled Barto Clement. He was born in 1900 and passed in 1974 on his birthday. His wife was Annie Elizabeth Black. Barto and Annie are my grandparents. Bessie and Myrtle Cooper are sisters, they married Barto's brothers John and Henry. Bessie and Myrtle mother was Augusta Cooper birn in Louisana. Barto father Andrew Jackson Sheppherd Owens was adopted by a John Owens. John died when Andrew was 3 yrs old. A family, last name Nixon, took Andrew in but they never adopted him.

Hope this helps.

Re: Benton County Census of 1850

2015-07-30 14:30:04Z

There were three Jincey Downings [many spellings] in the Downing family. There is no evidence to indicate any had Indian blood. All three were born in Alabama.

One was the daughter of James Downing & Mary Meharg and born c 1816. She went to Texas, and while she had a son, Jesse B Downing, there is no evidence she ever married [which is not to say she didn't].

Second is Jencie Downing Brothers, the daughter of Thomas Jefferson Downing & Charity Mira Autrey and the granddaughter of the James Downing & Mary Meharg mentioned above. She was born in the 1830s, married Dr Philip Houston Brothers and is buried in Calhoun County.

Third is Jincey Downing, the daughter of Archibald Downing & Elizabeth Cameron and the granddaughter of the James Downing and Mary Meharg mentioned above. She was born in the 1830s and as late as 1880, she was still unmarried and living with her parents in Etowah County. After that, all record of her disappears.

Jencie Downing Brothers is fairly well-documented, but the other two are problematic. While both appear to have never married, anything is possible.

Anna
