ROBINSON - ROBERSON - BONNER - SILLS
I am writing again to ask for help in finding my gggrandparents, William Robinson/Roberson and Elizabeth Bonner Robinson/Roberson. William was born in 1790, I think, and Elizabeth in 1794.

The land records show William owning 40 acres in Wilcox County in the mid-1800's. William's grandson Alfred Bennett Roberson married first Martha Elizabeth Canterbury and second, Mary Alice Wright. They lived in Pine Apple, Al.

Hugh Yongue Sr.(son of Hugh Yongue I and wife Margaret) emigrated from South Carolina around 1819, along with his wife, Rosanna and some of their eight children to Wilcox Co., Ala. near Reheboth. He and his family are buried in the Yongue Cemetery, a small cemetery near Reheboth, still in fairly decent condition considering the number of years it has been in existence. Hugh Yongue Sr. died, Dec.1843 at 66 years old. His wife Rosanna (died 1835) and all his family then living there, preceded him in death. One of his granddaughters and her husband are buried in the Seltzer-Malone Cemetery in Reheboth.
P>I am in search of Hugh Yongue Sr.'s will, which I know exists, but I am unsure of the location of this will? Does the courthouse in Wilcox,Co. still have early wills, would these wills have been sent to the Archives in Mmontgomery, or would they still possibly be in Reheboth?

GULLEY - McCONDICHIE
Seeking information on my gggrandfather JOHN JAY GULLEY who married MARY ANN McCONDICHIE on 8/30/1853. The GULLEYs lived in the easternmost part of Wilcox County, around Snow Hill (now Furman). Possibly parts of the family lived in the nearest surrounding counties, but I believe most lived in Wilcox.
JOHN JAY GULLEY was born 11/2/1826. When did he die? His last child I have record of was born in 1866, so I know he must have been alive 8 or 9 months before. Where is he buried? I have not been able to find this information. Most of his family are in Old Snow Hill, Snow Hill, Palmer or nearby cemetaries. Likewise, his wife, MARY ANN E. McCONDICHIE GULLEY. She was born 8/25/1838. By photos I have, one of her with her daughter, son-in-law and several grandkids, she was alive at least until 1890. Where is she buried?
If you have any information on this family and can help, I'd really appreciate it! Glad to share what I have, too.

Rehoboth Methodist Church Cemetery
I was fortunate enough to visit this cemetery, and was so upset at the condition. It is gradually fading ito the woods. It needs some heavy work. A bush hog can not be used as there are graves hidden in the grass (markers are on them). There are many families represented there, Christian, Laird, Vincent.
Mr. Wilkinson and I worked two hours trying to clear brush from around fence at Christian and Vincent graves. Fence appears to be in good shape except gate is missing. It could be lying in grass somewhere. There are trees that need cutting and moving. Elizabeth Applewhite Jordan Christian's grave needs some mortar and strong arms to lift slab back into place. The are shrubs within fence that need to come down. I could not even read other graves for shrubs. And I know Selena Shofner Christian is also buried there. Both of these women were married to George A. Christian, the son of Dr. George Daniel Christian.
There is no sign of a church ever being there. What I need to know is there no one willing to take this on as a project? These are not my ancestors, tho some of them are related. But that does not matter. If we want to preserve our heritage - why not the graves of same?
I would go and do this myself if I were able. I have very bad wrists(You can tell by my typing.) and the litle bit I did that day left me unable to do much of anything for a while.
Does anyone know if the Church still owns this property? Is there not some civic organization or scout troop that could do this for a project? Once it is done, then weed killer could be used in heavy doses within the fences at least and it will only need a yearly bit of work to keep it up. Does anyone have any ideas? It is so sad, and I am afraid a longing truck might run over the graves as they are so hidden.

Curlin in 1850 AL Census - Marengo Co. living with a sister of Francis. Any information welcome! Thank you.
I am researching the Jesse & Francis Curlin family and have a question regarding cemeteries. In "Marengo County, Alabama: Some Early Families" compiled by Mary Tucker Walker, 1993, there is an entry for Solomon and Delilah (Daniels) Perkins. Solomon lived at one time in Marengo County, then moved to Wilcox County where he wrote his will dated 6 May 1839. This will proved 27 Nov 1845. This article states that "....Solomon Perkins...died suddenly of apoplexy....and is buried at McKinley Cemetery.....Delila Daniels, wife.....is buried by her husband at McKinley...."
My question - is McKinley Cemetery in Wilcox or Marengo Co.??? I also see reference to a McNeill Cemetery and a Dunning Cemetery. Are these in Wilcox or Marengo Co.??? If they are in Wilcox Co., are there any indexes available for any of them?
In particular I am looking for the graves of Jesse and Francis Curlin and any of their children. I am interested also in any Curlin/Curling that might be in this county.

Richard had 14 siblings, all born and lived in Oak Hill. Richard and Minnie had fifteen Children, which some of them, or most of them, moved away from Oak Hill, in the early 1940's.

GULLEY - LEWIS - VINCENTS
I am trying to find out as much about my family as I can. They lived in Wilcox county until around the 30's in Snow Hill Alabama. So far I found out they were from a community call Pleasant Hill or Furman. Thanks to your records I was able to get some information but I want to know more. Such as:
1. The plantation that most of the former slave lived on in that area.
2. If native americans also inhabitated that area. My Great grand mother, Rosetta Lewis Gulley talked about her father, John Savage and described him as being tall, long black hair and lighter skinned. It could be that she was of Mexican descent as well.
3. Rosetta brother was named "Bully" and was said to have fought in a Mexico-American battle. His nickname was "Toad" which means to me he must have been short.

BRADLEY - JENKINS
My Gr.gr.gr.gr.grandparents Joseph (born 1755, died 1832) and Ann Jenkins. He had two other wives, 1st Rachel Lewis and third Margaret ?.
My gr.gr.gr. grandparents Dr. Edwin and Elva "Haddox" Jenkins.
My gr.gr. grandparents Thomas and Marie "BRADLEY" Jenkins. Both died in Wilcox county or near in Aug. 1852. They had two twins whose names are unknown to me and a son John Edwin (my gr.grandfather) and Margaret.
Can anyone give me information on Thomas and Marie and/or any information on the set of twins. My records show Dr. Edwin Jenkins raised John Edwin and sister Margaret. But the Bradleys (the maternal grandparents)raised the two twins. Do not know if boys or girls, or whether they kept the Jenkins name or took the Bradley name. Joseph is buried in the Jenkins Cemetery near Oak Hill, some of the other family is buried there also. Thomas and Marie were mid 20's when they died in 1852. Thank you, Malcolm L. Rigsby
