Queries & Additional Information

Markham, Benjamin:  I am searching for information about my grandmother, Elvira Carruth and my grandfather, Benjamin Markham.  I believe Elvira was born in Beaverton, Al on or around 3/17/1884.  I believe she died in Detroit, AL 9/15/1967.  My grandfather died around 1936 in or around Detroit, AL.  I have been unable

etc.  Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

TN. on 1820 census, then into Ala. from 1830 on census. I'm looking for anything on his early life and parents. He joined the army for the War of 1812 in Knoxville TN.

MCDONALD, Allan:  In the Lamar County, AL, area, my direct lines are from Jefferson C. LEE, Allan McDONALD, and Green Jackson NICHOLS.  Associated lines are McCLESKEY, CODY, YOUNG, RITTER, PENNINGTON, EVANS, PHILLILPS, BULLARD, CANTRELL, TURNER, and others.  I would especially be interested in corresponding with anyone researching or related to my direct LEE and NICHOLS lines as I have little on these families before their arrival in Alabama.  Contact Sharon Shumate at

Contact:  Vicki Dixon Mattson  email

MORTON, James M.:  I'm writing this, hoping to correct some misinformation.  James M. Morton is my ancestor.

He is the son of Dr. James B. Morton and Mary Malloy (not Mary Brown as commonly thought).

The Death Certificate of James M. Morton's younger brother, Dr. Thomas Clark Morton, states his mother's name as Mary Malloy.

There is a genealogy in the Vernon library done by Ellie Cumi Morton that lists Dr. James B. Morton's wife as Mary Brown.  This information is incorrect and has spread far and wide.  I hope we can correct some of it. 

Thank you,
