Re: McCoy/Chapman of Henry County

Thu, 10/16/2014 - 01:01
Hi, I am the great grand daughter of J.W. (James William) McCoy via his daughter Virginia Janie. You are correct Aunt Lina is Mary Emmaline (1879-1958). My grandmother additionally listed Lula Francis (1875 -1940), Docia Camille (1883 - 1972), Mittie Alice (1887 - 1904), William John (Uncle Bill) 1881 - 1955) and Evie Estelle (1885 -1890), I have J. W.'s Sacred Harp book the fifth revision of the Cooper book if you study Sacred Harp. W.R. McCoy (my great great grandfather 1856 -1928) was married to Virginia Antoinette Chapman (1856 - 1928) and was on the Cooper Revision Committee endorsing the book. All of the McCoys I name above along with my great grandmother and her children (to include my grandmother) were "strong voiced" sacred harp first attendance was at the McCoy Annual Singing which was once held at a place called Little Vine near Dothan. I could rattle on with stories, I saw and spoke with Aunt Docia at this singing in 1963...tiny little frail woman. I was surprised to find there is Indian heritage but I'm not sure if it is McCoy or Chapman in origin. Alabama has it's wills online and W.R. McCoy's will was probated. One of the public ancestry trees has pictures of W.R.'s children, I could not tell beyond that where the Indian Heritage came from but since they are all within the old Creek, Muscogee, and Seminole areas...I've been looking along those lines. They are a fascinating family and I was inspired to revisit my shape note heritage. Most any McCoy you see in a Sacred Harp book, will be related. Sorry if all of this is old news....I've only been doing this hit and miss until recently.

I think I can answer your questions on who Inez Carter, who married Costie K. Carter is - although by this time you may already know. She was the daughter of Isaac "Matt" Griffin who was married to Eldis Watford Griffin. I would love to obtain a copy of the newspaper article on Inez' automobile accident as not living in Alabama but Illinois I don"t have access to copies of local newspapers except that I do have an account with but their files only are filmed up until the 1940's.

Matt Griffin is the son of Charles W. and Missouri (mnu) Griffin who married in Barbour county ca 1869. Charles W. Griffin was the son of Charles S. and Evaline Smith who came from GA in the 1855-1859 period to Russell co. Al. I have a niece-in-law who loves genealogy as much as I do and we have been working on the Griffin family for several years now.

I am trying to help her locate her 3rd great grandparents the Griffins who also came to Al from GA ca the 1855-1859 period. I have lots of info on them and if you are interested or related to them somehow would be glad to share what we found on this particular line of Griffins. They have certainly been our brick wall but we have discovered lots about them along the way.

Please feel free to contact me anytime.

Yes, its the James who married Martha Ann Creamer. A note on the Whitehead and Lock connection, Matthew Whitehead married Polly Lock 28 Sep 1836 in Henry Alabama.

Re: Eli Frank Glover and son Elijah Glover

Middle date on tombstone is marriage date: E. C. Glover married D. C. Godfrey on 24 February 1898. Her name was Dolie Clee Godfrey.

Re: Eli Frank Glover and son Elijah Glover

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 18:34
Have a question on Elijah Coleman Glover. His tombstone has three (3) dates on it. Birth date of 09-21-1872, Date of death as 11-23-1946, and a date in between of 02-24-1898. Do not have any idea what this middle date is? Does anyone else? He does have a "Masons" emblem engraved into the tombstone.

Re: Pelham/Pellum marriages

Joseph L. Lock? I have a few of them in the database but none that died in 1864. Do you know who his father was? He is kin to me, but I don't know who he is which is crazy as I thought I had everyone.

Re: Pelham/Pellum marriages

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 22:19
The listing for Elizabeth Jane Pellum and William Lock is not correct. She married Joseph L. Lock and after his death in 1864 married Thomas Glass. Joseph's middle name began with an "L" not "I". This is born out by his service records, death record and Elizabeth's claim for monies due him at his death. Feel free to contact me.

Is this the James A Locke that married Martha Ann Creamer, or is it a different James?
I am really trying to find info on W A Locke that was married to Maryann Mahala Whitehead. (have seen her name be Molly, Polly, Maryann Haley, etc.)
There is so much conflicting info on the Whitehead family on here, I am trying to avoid copying people's trees because some of it doesn't even make sense or match the records. Any documented info for the Locke/Whitehead connection would be appreciated.

HI Pat, you still searching for Armstrong's?? Hope this address is good. I think you have my private email, I lost yours. I still have not found who Matthew married, thought it was Sarah Kirkland, but you say she married Martin. Would love to talk to you again.
