Of Fayette County, Alabama

Notes and census by:Mary Ann Strickland Grainger

 I visited this small family cemetery with my father,
Carter Bartly Strickland, several years ago, where he showed me his cousin's grave. The cemetery was on a flat of a hill near Walter Wilkerson's place. We took a road in front of Pat Wilkerson's place - west. I am not even sure whether it was in Walker or Fayette Co., AL, but I think it was in Kansas, Walker County. The graves were:

The Rev. T. M. Harris
September 29, 1833
September 26, 1902

Adeline Harris (w/o of the Rev. T. M. Harris)
June 14, 1849
April 1922

Celia E. Harris (Celia Emaline Aldridge, s/o Parks Minard Harris)
September 2, 1896
March 29, 1925

Note: Celia Emanline Aldridge was a daughter of James Willis Aldridge and Frances Elizabeth Strickland. She died in childbirth with the birth of her daughter, Edna Elmmaline Harris, who was adopted by Griffith Houston Johnson, her mother's second cousin.

I think I recall that there was a child of Celia's buried there:

Royce Harris
February 27, 1920
January 7, 1922

There were no more graves than those four.

Parks Minard Harris, remarried and is buried with second wife somewhere else. He had other children by first wife, Celia; e.i., Albert, Lorene, and Cleburn Harris; but I have no further information on them or where they were buried.
