I am searching for the family of William SHEFFIELD, who was born about 1800 in NC. William was on the 1850 census of Wilcox Co, AL. He is found living very close to other SHEFFIELDS, the families of Isaac, Nathan, and Isham SHEFFIELD. In 1860, he is in Clarke Co, AL, living in the Grove Hill area and close to an Adam and John SHEFFIELD. Somehow he is related to these SHEFFIELDs but I haven't been able to find the connection. Could he be another son of Isaac who was born about 1780 married to Rebebcca Hare? Or could he be there brother? William was married to a Nancy (possibly a Nancy Crosby in Bulloch Co, GA).

The BURKS were suppose to have a home on Government St. in Mobile The story goes that they had a home on Government St. and country home on the Tombigee River and when the yankees came to Mobile at the end of the war, they hid their silver in some lard and stuck it down the well. Some of it was found but the ones that weren't I guess was disperse among family. Sallie B. gave all her girls 1 piece of silver, including my grandmother, Eloise. That was Eloise, Maggie, Mary Lou and Jeanette. When I was a little girl, spending the night with my grandmother, I used to sit and hold the fork with the faded 'B' on the handle, and imagine all sorts of stories.

WAY, LUKER, LUCAS My Great Grandfather Aaron Way, b SC last 3 mo of 1823 or first six of 1824, married Mary B. Luker, dau of Wm Luker,in Clarke Co. on 15 July 1855. Wm Luker's wife was a Lucas. I"m interested in leads on all three families. Aaron Way; and Mary Luker Way are in the 1860 US census for Prairie Bluff Community of Wilcox Co., Ala. with following children: Henry [Burl] Wayage 6 and "Puss" Way age 2.. Aaron Way is listed as a carpentar worth $120. There has been some confusion between him and an Aaron Way of same age, a planter worth $1,000 with wife Ellen in St. James Goose Creek Parish (now Charleston Co.) SC. When Aaron Way married Mary B. Luker, he would have been 31 or 32, rather old to marry in those days. Am interested in any info on his parents, previous marriage, etc. Also, son Henry seems a little old at 6 since US 1860 c;ensus taken in Sept. 28, 1860 and the marriage was 15 July 1855 performed by a Minister of the Gospel Wm Lin---illegible. Are there any old newspaper accounts of marriages, obits for this period available in Clarke Co. Many, many thanks for any lead.

My Great Grandfather was Ira ANDEREWS born @1860 My grandfather was Thomas Lonnie ANDEREWS born Oct 13, 1900 in Clarke County Alabama. (Grove Hill area.) I think Thomas Lonnie's sisters and brothers were also born in Clarke County. Their names were: Frank ANDEREWS, Fernie ANDEREWS, Henry ANDEREWS, Ethyl ANDEREWS and Donnie ANDEREWS (Female). I think there may have been more. They were all probably born late 1890's, early 1900's.

DEAN/DEANE Family lived in Suggsville during early 1800's - John DEAN SR apparently donated land for a cemetery and helped establish the first Methodist Church in the area. We spent all weekend looking for signs of the old church/cemetery but didn't find local residents who knew about it. Apparently John DEAN SR lived very near Suggsville as stated in his obit - from local paper referring to him as born of Va, Rev War Veteran, former Judge, etc. I know several of John's children married brothers and sisters of the HOPKINS Family. The group travelled to Arkansas together before the outbreak of the Civil War. From Arkansas the family moved to Texas. Surnames in Texas include: HOPE, WEBB, ROBERTS, SAUTER.
