Byrd family infoby
I came across two sites from people who had contributed info on the Byrd Hill cemetery. Connie Haynes and Jane Nichols. Both email addresses that were listed are apparently not current. If anyone has current addresses for the folks or has info relating to below info, please drop me a line.
My name is James Byrd. It's a long story but I have been going on the assumption that my ggrandfather was James Colbert, married to Annie Young. James was the son of Mason and Nancy Colbert of Jackson co. They came to Texas circa 1878-80. My grandfather James Byrd (b.1886 in TX.) was a train robber here in Texas and identified both as James Colbert and James Byrd. Turns out Annie Colbert was his birth mother but James Colbert was his step-father( Annie's second marriage). Prison records which I just obtained show that his birth father was John Byrd (nativity Tenn.) who died in 1887 and according to that file was buried in Madison Tenn. I have been to Jackson co.once to look through records but wasn't entirely clear on what I was looking for. Eli, Nathaniel and John Byrd are all listed on plat maps in that area. I am wondering if you might have any info or may be able to point me in the direction of someone who might be knowledgeable of Byrd family history. The Colberts were mixed white/Chickasaw/Cherokee and I believe the Byrds I am looking for may have been mixed Cherokee heritage.Thank you for the work you have already done

Gross Springsby Don Yarbrough
I am trying to find out about a town(?) area called Gross Springs. I can find it on Jackson County Alabama maps as being off County Road 676 but when I follow this road it comes to a gated area with a sign saying "Walnut Spring Plantation" and I can go no further. The maps does not show that the road is blocked at this point and there is no county "Dead End" sign. Does anyone know about this area?

Re Sarah Eliza browning Campbell gullattby
S. E. Is my gg gma. She md Thomas Gullatt after her 2nd husband (my gg gfthr James Campbell) died. She had a son, Joe D. Campbell (my g gfthr). Joe D md Nancy Brandon and their dau Virginia Maud was my perfect gmthr. There is a recent posting of Al Supreme Court Cases that shows that Joe's older siblings tried to disavow her marriage to Their father James M. Campbell ...he died about a year aft they married, undoubtedly to disallow her inheritance from Their father James who was ill and elderly when they wed. I would love to know more about her ..who her parents were, where she is buried, if she had any children with T Gullattt who would be Joe's half siblings. My gmthr said Joe's family were Proctor's, Cobb's and Hart's. But I have had no real luck in finding Cobb's or Hart's or exactly which of the Proctor'S BURIED NEXT TO Joe were his grandparents (sarah's parents). S.E is not buried near her son Joe, but several Proctor's are. Would anyone know her story? Thanks so much for this wonderful website.
Re: Re Sarah Eliza browning Campbell gullattby
Thomas Jefferson Gullatt was my Ggrandfather James Madison Gullatt's twin brother. Sarah Elizabeth (Proctor) Browning Campbell Gullatt was the second of TJ's five wives.
Browning I think was her first husband's last name. I do know that she is not a daughter of Benjamin and Rebecca (West) Browning as some family trees have her listed, She was I think a dau of Thomas and Cynthia (Martin) Proctor from the 1850 and 1860 census. One family tree has her as Sarah Elizabeth Proctor m. Joseph Browning 1828-1855 mar. ca 1848 which I think is correct. Joseph Browning was a son of Benjamin and Rebecca (West) Browning.
Here she is on the 1860 census.
1860 Bellefonte, Jackson Co. AL
Cynthia Proctor 58 Farmer NC
Reuben 20 Farm Laborer AL
William 17 Farm Laborer AL
Thomas 15 Farm Laborer AL
Elizabeth Browning 28 AL
Caroline 11 AL
Jane 8 AL
Benjamin 5 AL
I have not been able to find her and Joseph Browning on the 1850 Census. I found no marrages for their 3 childre and they are not on the 1870 Census. They were not mentioned in the settlement of her estate so I think they died before the 1870 Census.
Sarah Elizabeth and Thomas J. Gullatt had 3 children, Charles "Charley" b. 1866 d.before 1888, John b.Mar 1867 and Julia Ann b. Mar 1870.
Charley was unmarried.
John mar. a cousin Elizabeth Thompson 11 Jan 1891 (Granddau of Samuel and Lucinda (Gullatt) Thompson
Julia Ann mar. William E. Womack 08 May 1884
I don't know where she is buried but most likely it is one of the cemeteries around Bellefonte/Hollywood. Hurt Cem, Old Baptist Cem or Gant Cem. There is no listing for her or Thomas J. on the Jackson Co. MegaCem File.

Hastings, flowers, Gold Winneiger Cemeteryby
My great great grandparents were Steve (S.M.) Hasting(s) and Hannah Shankles Hasting(s). They, their daughter Peggy (Margaret), along with their son Joe and some of his family are buried at Gold Winneiger Cemetery. Last year and this year I've noticed that someone has been putting flowers on Steve and Hannah's grave the weekend of decoration. I would like to know who is leaving flowers so I can thank them and find out how we are related. Please contact me if you have any information.
Re: Hastings, flowers, Gold Winneiger Cemeteryby Clay Gullatt
You might try posting at firstname.lastname@example.org to see anyone there can give you info.
My great grandmother was Anna Hastings.She married William
Guffey. They are married in 1895 by an S.M. Hastings. I am not the one leaving the flowers but I think we may have a connection somewhere.

Alabama Hotel, Stevenson, ALby
I am seeking information and a photograph of the old Alabama Hotel in Stevenson, AL during the Civil War. I am working on a history of Co. I, 9th Alabama Infantry who stopped in Stevenson in June 1861, on their way to Richmond. Any help would be appreciated.
I am looking for the name of a cemetery in Jackson County. The following are directions as given to me.
Take highway 72 toward Stevenson. Just before you get to Dry Creek turn left. (There was a house where two old maids lived (Rogers sisters) on the corner where you turn. Across the highway was a BBQ place that was possibly named Bud's BBQ. After you turned left off Highway 72, you went down that road to the cemetery.
I would appreciate any help you can give me as to the name of this cemetery.
Re: cemetery helpby Clay Gullatt
Try posting this at email@example.com to see if anyone recognizes it.
I think the cemetery maybe named Cross I looked in a book I have. there are two cemeteries close by named Cross one is on county road 146 the road that goes to cedar switch. The other showed to be where you are talking about. there is no real road to it just a field road I think. Bud's BBQ is now Aunt Bea's
