HILL, MCCULLOUGH posted by Susan Lloyd on Monday, July 28, 1997

I have an ancestor we are trying to tie into for possible furthering of our direct lines. Her name is Rebecca HILL McCullough/McCulough. She was md to Henry L. MCCULLOUGH and resided in Benton Co. at the time of her father's death in 1854. We are trying to locate possible records on her children who would have been of marrying ages. I find them in Morgan Co on the 1830 census, and then loose them until the mention in estate records of Henry HILL Sr. in Morgan co. in 1854. Now to my request: Is there anyone anywhere who has access to marriage records, estate indexes, land indexes, etc....that might be willing to look up some of the stuff I have mentioned above. I show on the 1830 census for Morgan county the following children's ages: 1f b. 1810/1815, 1f b. 1815/1820, 1f b. 1815/1820, 1m b. 1815/1820, 1m b. 1820/1825, 1m b. 1820/1825, 1f b 1820/1825, 1f b. 1825/1830. I know I am requesting a lot, but we really would appreciate any lookups on the above. If we just had some names that we could take into the 1850's census would be most appreciated.I am assuming that since Henry isn't listed anywhere in the 1850 census in AL that he may have died. This is where the estate records index would be of great value to us on him. And if we had a marriage record after 1855 on Rebecca (HILL) McCullough would set us in a new direction for our search. I am more than willing to pay for copies and postage on anything I might be able to receive.

COBB, STEPHENS posted by Jane Rhem on Wednesday, August 20, 1997

I know the STEPHENS lived on Chocolocco Road and that William M. STEPHENS married Martha COBB there in 1861; then enlisted in the Confederacy in the 51st AL Cavalry - Co. "D". William and Martha's children were: J. W. and John Moses born in Calhoun Co. In 1866 they went to Falls County, TX where the rest of their children were born. I think William's father was Enoch STEPHENS, born in Campbell Co. KY. around 1820...coming first to Talladega Co., AL and then to Calhoun Co..There were some Stephens in Calhoun Co. when it was Benton Co. - John Richard STEPHENS and John STEPHENS. Thank you, Jane Stephens Rhem

HOBBS, JOHNSON, SEARCY, SPRADLEY, TANNER posted by Patsy Davis on Tuesday, September 23, 1997

I am searching information on the parents of my grandmother. I am looking for information on Joanna JOHNSON b Oct 7, 1871,d March 21, 1939, who married John Thomas TANNER b July 4, 1869, d Feb 5, 1913, and had at least six children, including Mabel TANNER b. May 11, 1899 ,in Anniston, Calhoun Co, AL ; Winnie TANNER SEARCY, Ruth TANNER HOBBS; William TANNER, Hosea TANNER and Johnny TANNER. I am told by a great aunt that "some of the family came from NC" but I don't know who or where. They may have lived in Hokes Bluff AL at some time. Joanna may be a descendent of Hosea (b SC abt 1808) and Lousia (b GA abt 1818) JOHNSON, but this is not confirmed. Mabel TANNER married Clarence Victor SPRADLEY Oct 23, 1912 in Talladega CO, Al, and later moved to Tuscaloosa. My father was the son of Mabel and Clarence SPRADLEY and always said he was "part Creek Indian" but I was not concerned about details of this until it was too late to ask him. Is it possible that you have any information on this family?
BARNES, COLEMAN posted by E. (Woody) Coleman, Jr. on Wednesday, October 8, 1997

I am researching my 3d great grandfather, Henry Allen COLEMAN, born in Putnam County, Georgia in 1814 and his wife: Sarah Ann BARNES, b. 1807. He appears to have left Cobb county, GA., sometime after 1850 ,where he lived a number of years, and lived awhile in Benton county, sometime before 1856. He then moved back to Georgia where he settled in Carroll county. I believe this family had kinfolk in neighboring Alabama. For the most part, this family had their residence in Cobb and Carroll county, GA. I would be most interested to find out something of the Coleman family of your county in Alabama since their might be a connection.
