    1. [GABRANTL] MY GRAHAMs FROM WAYNE / BRANTLEY COUNTY
    2. Dow Graham
    3. So here is part of my story as best as I can put it together: James M. GRAHAM was born on Sep 29, 1837 in Horry County, South Carolina. After serving with Company B, 10th Regiment SCV he married Amanda Melvina LONG on Dec 22, 1865. The family was in Horry County on the 1880 Federal Census. >From there I have gaps. Family tradition states their two sons (John Robert GRAHAM Sr. and William Ivy GRAHAM) left SC for Georgia to work for the railroad. According to James' Indigent Pension Application dated May 14, 1910 he had been a resident of Waynesville, Wayne County, GA for 24 years indicating he left SC about 1886. In 1900 Amanda M. Graham is listed as mother-in-law in the James WILLIAMS household with wife "Dora" (Victoria E.). I have not been able to locate William Ivy or James M. on the 1900 Federal Census. John Robert and his family were living in the Tanner District of Coffee County GA in 1900. William Ivy was born in 1872 in Horry County. I have his wife as Dora CRANDALL. James' Pension Application 1910 also contained a letter from SC addressed to William supporting James' claim. The 1910 census for Waynesville places William, widowed, as head of household located on Atkinson Road. Within the household were; Walter GRAHAM (son) was born in 1900 in GA., James H. GRAHAM (son) was born in 1902 in GA., Roy Lee GRAHAM (son) was born in 1905 in GA. (A Roy Graham is found on the 1920 census living in the Masonic House but unconnected since then), Linnie Lee GRAHAM (daughter) was born in 1906 in GA. (A Linnie Graham is found on the 1920 census living in the Masonic House but unconnected since then), James M. (father), Amanda M. (mother), Georgia A. (sister), Gibson, Lucy (niece age 5). Amanda's APPLICATION To Be Put on Roll in Her Own Right When Husband Was on the Indigent Roll dated Aug 31, 1912 states James died on Feb 29, 1912. I have found no death record for Amanda. Amanda I. GRAHAM was born in Sep 1879 in Horry County, SC. She married Stephen GIBSON on Jan 02, 1896. Apparently they both had died by 1910. Their children were Sarah GIBSON, born in 1900 and Lucy GIBSON, born on Aug 20, 1904. Lucy married Hillman Hunter and died on May 17, 1972. Thank you to everyone who's helped with pieces to my puzzle. If this sounds familiar to your story I'd love to chat. Regards Dow

    1. [GABRANTL] CEMETERY SURVEY
    2. Dow Graham
    3. I think I've asked this question some time ago, so sorry for asking again. Is there a survey of the GRAHAM aka LEE Cemetery available? The Brantley County website on rootsweb.ancestry.com locates it at Waynesville off CR331. My great-great grandfather, James M. GRAHAM was living with his son, William Ivy and Dora Crandall GRAHAM in Waynesville abt 1910 but the whole family seems to have disappeared. Thx! Still researching my GRAHAMs & ODUMs from Wayne County Dow Graham Columbia, SC

    1. [GABRANTL] Guale History Society Meeting: The Murder of Carl A. Perry
    2. Tara D. Fields
    3. Guale Historical Society of Camden County Date: Tuesday, April 10, 2007 Time: 7:00 P.M. Location: Camden County Public Library, Kingsland Highway 40 and Gross Road (across from Lowe’s) Free to the public! Speaker: Tara D. Fields President of the Guale Historical Society Student at Coastal Georgia Community College Topic: The 1928 Robbery of the State Bank of Kingsland and the Murder of Carl Arp Perry MURDER! More than a dozen miles outside of Kingsland a child’s grave lies all but forgotten. Finding it was easier when the old church building stood hard by the road. The church is gone; destroyed by time, weather and vandals. Oak Hill Baptist is now remembered only by a few old-timers and a misspelled road sign: Oakhill Church Road. The road fronting the church was once a part of the main road between Kingsland in Camden County and Folkston in Charlton County. Known as the Old Folkston-Kingsland Road, this section was bypassed when State Highway 40 was built to connect the towns. Trash is scattered throughout the area. A couch here, a stove there, a toilet shines in the sun. While the grave is not yet covered in trash, there are many pieces of junk nearby: old clothing, paper and other small items discarded from people’s lives. The marble of the headstone is dirty, but it still shows brighter than most of its surroundings (except for the gleaming toilet). The grave had sunken somewhat since the last time I visited. Under the marble headstone with the lamb curled up on the top of it lies Paul E. Todd. Born in 1915, Paul was the son of Mr. and Mrs. William M. Todd. He was only two years old when he died on Monday, September 24, 1917. His family had set over his grave what is commonly known as a “cradle” or “bedstead” marker. The headstone and foot stone were joined by side rails, leaving the center open for flowers and plants. The entire grave marker was child-sized, with his foot stone simply stating “Baby.” The people who buried this child cared deeply for him. The expense of the headstone alone spoke volumes. Most children of this time period never received any type of headstone, much less a marble marker. Not only was the child’s full-name on the headstone, but his father’s as well. I could imagine a funeral procession traveling along the old Kingsland-Folkston Road. A combination of cars and carriages would have been parked by the side of the road, some may have pulled up into the Church yard. The grieving parents would have leaned on each other for support while they watched their son lowered into the ground. How difficult it must have been to leave their child behind; but they must have taken some comfort in knowing that their child was safe in a church-yard. I wanted to know more about little Paul E. Todd. How did he die? Who was his family? Why was he buried at Oak Hill Baptist Church? Where were his living relatives? Did they know about the condition of his grave? Did they care? My search for the family of little Paul would lead me to search through documents both on the Internet and in crumbling papers stored in libraries and courthouses across two states. What I found shocked me: little Paul’s mother was involved in one of the most notorious and heinous crimes in Kingsland. On a dark and stormy night in February of 1928, Mamie would wait at home while three men, Homer Simpson, Ernest Waller and Malcolm Morrow, robbed the Kingsland State Bank. While she was not the triggerman, she did provide these men with the knowledge they needed to rob the bank. What she didn’t count on was a series of events, some that happened years before, which would effect the actions of the lone bank cashier: Carl Perry. Carl would be mortally wounded that night, but before he died he would tell his story and name his killers. He fought for his life. While he failed in his attempt to live, he succeeded in giving the police the information they needed to solve the crime of his own killing. That night, the fates of three men would be sealed. One died shortly after the robbery, two more would die the following year. Two more people would spend years in prison. The family of Mamie would suffer, as well. Years after the murder, her surviving son would kill himself. Her daughter would live, but would never have children. Mamie, Homer, and Malcolm’s lines ended that night, but Carl’s lived on. Eventually, I would learn what killed little Paul E. Todd. I would find his family. I would find a terrible tragedy that should not have happened. “Baby,” and his family’s story, has been forgotten for far too long.

    1. [GABRANTL] Bullhead Bluff Cemetery
    2. Tara D. Fields
    3. Hello, I'm sending this note to all who may be interested in an issue facing Camden County and surrounding areas. Last year Mr. James Herrin started to build a house immediately next to an old African-American cemetery at Bullhead Bluff in Camden County. The families of those buried in the cemetery contacted me, because they had concerns that the house was being built on top of unmarked graves. For nearly a year we've been working to resolved this issue once and for all. A ground penetrating radar survey (done for free last summer) did not provide a conclusive answer (due in part to extensive ground disturbance from trees, flooding, etc). As a compromise I suggested, with the knowledge and blessing of the family, an alternative to a long legal battle: a surface scraping around the structure (the top 1' or so of dirt is removed) would expose graves shafts without disturbing human remains. If grave shafts are not found in that area, the family, and I, would drop all objections. To this date Mr. Herrin has not, to my knowledge, contacted an archaeologist to learn the details of this surface scraping. Mr. Herrin has also obtained a quit claim deed to a corner of the cemetery proper (as marked on a survey). He has removed trees from this area and has stored building materials in that area (I saw this myself). While he’s not building on this corner, the family feels, as I do, that such treatment is improper and disrespectful. On Wednesday January 31st at 6pm there will be a Planning meeting at the Annex building in Kingsland (next to the Camden County Library) to address this issue. Mr. Herrin has been fighting to resume building without any further research. We'd like to have as many cemetery supporters at the meeting as possible. With rampant development in this county, and the surrounding counties, there will be more issues like this in the future. What happens now may set a precedent not just in Camden County, but in surrounding areas. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone or any list you think may be interested. Thank you, and I hope to see some of you there! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Tara D.
