    1. Re: [ALWASHIN] State Rep. Joseph R. Waldrop Killed Washington County, Al. 1870
    2. Att: Linda Overman Registrar/ Preservation Officer Sate of Alabama Department of Archives and History Jerry Cole....Thanks for the email. I don't know about Washington County, Alabama. To have been one of the largest area in it's time, there are people who have been going thru since the early 1800s, The Mississippi Territory covered a lot of land since the early 1800s. No one seems interested in Washington County any more. The Washington County List is seldom used. I have tied to have my great grandpapa Washington County State Rep. Joseph Ryan Waldrop's picture placed into the St. Stephens Museum. He was a Physician, Methodist Minister, Retail Merchant, KKK, he helped the best he could to pull Washington County back together after the Civil. 1870 he was shot and killed for working for Washington County, Alabama. Mr. Long who works at St. Stephen Museum offered to have State Rep. Joseph R. Waldrop's picture hung with others who worked and gave their lives for Washington County. Mr. Long has the picture of my great grandpapa as far as I know if ,he did when I went to visit the museam .He said he would take care of the matter, Nothing has been done about this State Rep. of Washington County, Alabama. J. R. Waldrop. When my daughter and I waked out State Rep. Joseph R. Waldrop's picture was laying on a table in the foyer of the building. I can't get Mr. Long to return my calls. Barbara Waddell and her friend the Sec.of the Museum told me that they have thousands of pictures and letters of people wanting their State Reps. hung in the museam. Barbara Waddell blocked my emails so I couldn't email her when I asked her questions she couldn't or wouldn't answer. I have more to tell you but I am writing fast to share this with you . My great grandpapa has a right to have a marker and and be reconized by his County. Joseph Ryan Waldrop abt.1867-1870 killed 1870 , Escatawpa, Alabama, Washington County. He served in Montgomery, Alabama's Capital, Gov. Smith State Rep. Joseph R. Waldrop...all of this is Documented. Have pictures Obit: The Hon. Joseph R. Waldrop written in the Mobile Register, Mobile , Alabama, 1870 also the Columbus, Georgia Ledger Enquirer. Will write more later..........More info if needed can be found in the Washington County History Books.

    1. [ALWASHIN] George Washington Fox
    2. Lynda Langston Fredendall
    3. I'm glad to see some activity on this list! George Washington Fox was born 1792 in North Carolina. He married Sarah Ann Herrington about 1818 in Alabama. Their first born son was John Herrington Fox born 1820, their next son (my ancestor) was William Loid Fox born 1822 in Washington Co. The remaining 8 children were all born in Washington Co. I haven't found George in 1820 yet. I don't know his parents or the parents of Sarah Ann Herrington, although their first child being named John Herrington Fox is a clue. One account has them leaving Washington Co., going to Mississippi and then Sabine and Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana where both George and Sarah died. I would like to find the parents of these folks and will be glad to exchange what information I have on their children. Lynda Langston Fredendall

    1. [ALWASHIN] new to list: White surname
    2. I am a descendant of Alexander White and Mary Ann Cogan Carpenter White (1841-1913). Their son, James Alexander White (1858-1930) and his wife Emma Alice Flora White (1868-1904), their son, William Edward White (1867-1945) and his first wife, Nancy Yost White and several others are all supposedly buried in the Fruitdale Cemetery. Just wondered if anyone has extra info on this family. Is there a searchable internet listing of all the cemeteries in Washington County? Most of the information that I have on these folks is from "The History of Washington County, Alabama" p 42,43. Thanks ahead of time for any help you might offer. I live in Tennessee, so don't have much Alabama info available here. Gail Bowman Longton

    1. Re: [ALWASHIN] Williams Cemetery
    2. Larry, there are several Williams Cemeteries apparently in Washington County, Alabama. One is Jasper Williams that is locatd on the farm of Sid and Vivian Beech. This is east of Fruitdale on Chatom Highway about 1 1/2 miles on paved road and 1 1/2 miles to the right on dirt road. Williams Cemetery aka South Oak Grove Cemetery but I do not know directions to it. Williams-Turner Family Cemetery - Located on the grounds of Neal C Stanley (nee Sally Turner) on the east side of HWY 43 at Sunflower. I;ve seen Lewis Williams Cemetery mentioned but I do not know where that is either. Did you have a specific name you were looking for? Maybe I can look up for you.

What > newspaper might I be able to contact about perhaps a birth announcement for > Elizabeth? Are there marriage records available to search for Fread GRIMES > married to Elizabeth ? The only local newspaper I can think of that might help is the Washington County News; a small weekly paper still put out today by the Call Dispatch in Citronelle, Alabama since the death of the owner last year. Microfiche on the older papers can be ordered through Alabama Archives and History from Montgomery, Alabama. (ADAH) I just went through one reel from 1889. They charged me $15 for interlibrary loan. If Elizabeth was 15 when they married seems it would have been around 1931 going from her birthdate. I only saw one record online at ancestry but it was dated 12/1938 for Fred Grimes and no other name from Mobile, Alabama. In Yellow Pine in 1920 there was an Elizabeth Gardner but she was already 10. Would appear they might still be in the 1930 census in Alabama if they had only been in Nevada for 3 months at her death in 1936. You could check with someone in Washington County to see if they could look up a marriage record for you during that time frame. Of course they may not have married in Washington County either. I'll keep my eyes open as I am researching in Washington County, Alabama also. I don't live there or would be happy to check for you. However, I may be able to get a cousin to look.

    3. Hi Eileen Have you got in contact with Christine? She has a lot of Genealogy on all the Grimes Families from all over. She just might be able to help you. Good luck Madeline Grimes Her email address is [email protected] GOD BLESS AMERICA Hi List, I know this is a longshot at best but I sure would like to find out more about the family of Elizabeth. Here is all I have to go on. Mineral County Independent News (Hawthorne, Mineral, NV keep reading it pertains to Yellow Pine, AL also) 9 Dec 1936 Illness Fatal To Young Matron Mrs. Elizabeth GRIMES, Aged 15 (not a typo, age 15), died at the Mineral county hospital Monday morning. The young matron underwent an operation for appendicitis and complications Sunday afternoon and appeared to be improving. Early Monday morning, however she suffered a relapse and failed to rally. Born in Yellow Pine, Alabama, 16 Sep 1921, the young woman spent the greater part of her life in the south. With her husband, Fred GRIMES, she came to Hawthorne three months ago. Besides her husband and several relatives by marriage, living in Hawthorne, she is survived by her father and a sister in Alabama. Funeral services were conducted yesterday afternoon at St. Phillips chapel under the direction of Woolsey R. Hopkins. Interment was in the local cemetery. (Hawthorne Cemetery) Here is where I need some direction from the list. Is there birth records in Yellow Pine, Washington, AL online that I could search with the first name of Elizabeth and her birthday of 16 Sep 1921 ? What newspaper might I be able to contact about perhaps a birth announcement for Elizabeth? Are there marriage records available to search for Fread GRIMES married to Elizabeth ? They could not have been married very long with her only being 15. What newspaper may have carried the obit for Elizabeth GRIMES in 1936 ? Are there any of these records online ? If not how might I contact them? To go any further I need her maiden name which is not mentioned anywhere in what I have found here in Hawthorne where I live. What I am doing in case you are curious I am attempting to document all the unmarked graves in Mineral County, NV. of which, thusfar, Elizabeth GRIMES is one. I will never know exactly where these people are buried but, at least I can give them there rightful place in our History and let people know that they too were important. Thank you for any help, direction, suggestions or answers.
