THORNTON -11/25/01 - -I have been looking all over, including the Greene County page for information on Mary Jane Thornton who was born at Eutaw, Green County, in 1862. She is mentioned on the historical marker at Bethel Baptist Church as the one who went to China as a missionary. She married George Pleasant Bostick in China in 1891. He was also a missionary there. She died in China in 1903. There is another Mary Jane Thornton who was born in Greene County in the 1830s and was married there in the 1850s and there has been some confusion between those Mary Janes, He was reportedly killed in 1862 during the Civil War. I am looking for the parents, and ancestors of the Mary Jane who was born in 1862. Do you know anyone who has access to an 1870 Greene County, AL census ? I haven't been able to find one on the internet. I have traced one of my Thornton lines into Greene County, and I am looking for a link to Mary Jane. -- "David Rusher"  dmrrun@yahoo.com

CHAMBERS/ McCRACKEN-10/07/01 - Someone recently sent me information from the new Greene County Heritage book. The info sent to me states that Samuel Chambers married Elizabeth McCracken, daughter of John McCracken, in SC. They had one child, James M. Chambers, and Elizabeth died. Samuel then married Jane (Gamble) and settled in Greene Co., AL. They had several children together. Samuel's burial place is unknown but may be Hebron because he "willed" money or land to Hebron. A couple of items from the book conflict with the information I have. From the estate of John McCracken, Samuel Chambers signed in "right of his wife" Elizabeth. This was in the 1840s. So, it appears that she was not deceased at that time. Also, Samuel Chambers died intestate, so he could not have willed land or money to Hebron. I also have a pedigree chart from a granddaughter of James M. Chambers in which she states that Elizabeth McCracken Chambers d. in 1841. Does anyone know who submitted the information in the new Greene County book, or does anyone have any ideas that might help explain the differences in the book information on Chambers/McCracken and other research? Any help is greatly appreciated. -- Catherine Cooper ccooper902@aol.com 

HEMPHILL-09/30/01 - - My great-great-grandfather William Hemphill received a land patent in Greene County,Al. on October 1, 1835, and according to an account by Dr. Jacob Huggins, "History of My Native Village" (Newbern) "In 1829, Messrs Harvey Tyndall and Simpson Hemphill built the first store in this settlement,which was called by the country people "Grab-All" thereby showing its character" It was built on the east side of the Newbern-Uniontown road where the Prarie Rpad now intersects this road." William came to Greene from Williamson County,Tennessee with his wife Jane Cooper Hemphill, and she died when they lived there,but I have found no cemetery record. James Simpson Hemphill who was a partner in the store in Newbern married Abigail Williams in Alabama and had seven children born in Alabama before moving to Mississippi in the early 1840s,but he never appeared on an Alabama census, and I have found no marriage record. This is the toughest research I have encountered, and I will be grateful for any help. Regards,  Bill Pittman wcpittman@sprynet.com

New African American Site -09/23/01 - - Hello and thank you for being a Roots Web County host for Greene County. I have a new link which I think would be appropriate for inclusion in your County pages, under the census category and also in the African American category if you have one or are planning to establish one. I have done partial transcriptions of the 1860 slave census for your County, wherein I have transcribed the names of the largest slaveholders in the County. I then have compiled surname matching information for African Americans on the 1870 census, using the Heritage Quest African Americans in the 1870 U.S. Federal Census CD. The resulting information is included in a page I have established at Roots Web. My suggestion is that the link be named "Greene County largest slaveholders from 1860 slave census schedules and surname matches for African Americans on 1870 census". Your consideration and inclusion of this link will be appreciated. Here is the link: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~ajac/algreene.htm   -- Tom Blake  tmblake@juno.com

War Monuments- 07/28/01 - - Hi, I am Chuck James from Montgomery, Alabama. My family is from Cullman and many from old Winston County. One little side track from my hobby into Genealogy, is I have become interested in all the civil war items and points of interest across Alabama. I am trying to make a list by county, and one day make a web site or little book. My biggest thing I am looking for right now are Confederate or Civil War monuments that many counties have. I have found 13 so far and most are in little court squares in front of old court houses. In doing this I now understand why Confederate Memorial Day was a big event in Alabama. I see where the history came from. I was wondering if there is any in Greene County. I like to travel and make photos and details of what exist. I have a friend Mike Rhodes who once told me that in the cemetery in Eutaw, he thought there was a monument. Think his dad was once Chief of Police in Eutaw. Could you help me out and tell me what exists in Greene County. Is there a memorial somewhere in the county? I would appreciate your help. Thanks. -- Chuck James  CRJBAMA@aol.com   Montgomery, Alabama

Oak Hill/Mesopotamia Cemetery - 05/05/01- - I want to clear up some confusion for anyone searching for ancestors in the Oak Hill Cemetery, as listed in Alabama Records of Greene County, Book 12, part 1, Volume 14, pages 77-94, as compiled by Pauline Jones Gandrud.  The Oak Hill Cemetery, I have found, is in reality the Mesopotamia Cemetery within the town of Eutaw, Greene County, AL. Yesterday I made a trip to Eutaw  from Mississippi, and after searching out in the country for Oak Hill  Cemetery with directions many kind souls had given me (including persons at the Courthouse), I had just about given up after 50 wasted miles. I stopped at the Mesopotamia Cemetery on Highway 14 going into Eutaw and lo and behold there were the Thompsons, my ancestors.They had been listed in Oak Hill Cemetery in the Gandrud volumes in the MS Archives. Evidently there was some name change or mistake over the years with this. I just wanted everyone to know and learn from my mistake. There just may be another Oak Hill Cemetery somewhere, but the listing in the Alabama Records contains the names for person buried at the Mesopotamia Cemetery. Hope this help someone. Sincerely, Dorothy O'Neill Djaneo@aol.com

New Civil War Book on 41st AL Inf. CSA - 02/13/01- -I am within two weeks of completing a comprehensive history of the 41st Alabama Infantry Regt which fought in the Civil War. Company E of that regt was comprised of recruits from Perry and Greene Counties. The book is comprehensive (400+ pages of text and 250 pages of summarized war records). I obtained a complete set of microfilm from the National Archives and transcribed the war records of each soldier that served with the 41st. The story of the regiment is told largely by the participants. I was able to amass over 350 letters written by more than a dozen veterans. I supplemented these resources by books written by soldiers who served within the same brigade at the 41st. I coupled this information with the administrative documents found in the Official Records of the Rebellion and other first hand sources. Unfortunately, I was never able to locate any correspondence written by anyone from Company E. I expect to have the manuscript in the hands of a publisher by the end of the month.  The fact that I have researched and written the book is well known in PIckens, Fayette and Tuscaloosa Counties. I may need your assistance to find contacts in Greene and Perry Counties to alert folks interested in the war time history of their ancestors. Contact Info follows William R. Morales, 290 Windsong Echo Drive, Henderson, Nv. 89012. (702) 260-0173. Sincerely, Bill Morales  billjohnette@worldnet.att.net

Errors on Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church Link - 02/13/01- - Glad to see this on the site. But there are some serious typos, and several times it is stated that the church is "near the Sipsey River."  The line is supposed to read "on the Mouth of Sipsey Road." The church stands several miles from Sipsey River. I just don't want someone looking for the church to be seeking a church on the banks of the Sipsey. Maybe I could email you the original file for you to post on the site. By the way, General Joseph E. Johnston was never associated with the church to the best of my knowledge. -- Scott Owens ANRKEE@aol.com

I have read that the courthouse in Greene County burned, which makes me wonder if these records still exist. But if they do, I was wondering if  anyone  has access to these records who might try to locate that naturalization record for me. I'd be happy to trade a lookup here in New Orleans for it.-- "Ellen Cleary" ellencleary@earthlink.net

SCOTT - 01/14/01- -I'm trying to find more info on William Alexander Scott who lived in Madison County and died in 1829 at Maysville. He had a son Robert Scott who Scottsboro is named for and lived in Jackson County. There are about 6 of us trying to trace this tree back, but have not been able to find out William Alexander's father or mother's name. We do know that he came from Scotland and served in the Revolutionary War. Married a Jane W. Thomas from Port Tobacco, Maryland. That they lived in North Carolina before moving to Madison County. And it also, seems the mother Jane Thomas just dropped off the face of the earth, too. I have searched for both pieces of information, short of driving to Scottsboro and going through what papers that Robert Scott left. They say he left some very good records. But I won't be able to do that until sometime in the spring. There are dates that some of the people have come with as William being born around 1729 or 1753. It's been pretty much confirmed the died in 1829 in Madison County while living at Maysville. If anyone can help I would appreciate it, and if there is anything you might need to have researched in the Augusta, GA area just let me I will do what I can to help.
