Marilyn,
   I tried to send you a message earlier this week giving you more
information about my Wilsons and have been waiting for a response from
you, but my daughter tells me my message to you didn't get sent for some
reason, so I will try to do it over.
   The land my Irvin Wilson and wife Margaret Johnson had in Macon
County, Alabama was deeded to them by a John Wright and his wife
Charlotte Johnson.  I suppose they were the same as the John Wright and
Charlotte Johnson who married in Putnam County, Georgia on January 3,
1817.  My guess is that Charlotte and Margaret were related and probably
both had ties to Sampson/Duplin Co., NC.  Irvin died in Macon County
about 1856 and about 1869 some of the Johnsons of Coffee Co., Alabama,
who came from Sampson Co., NC, went and got Margaret and her daughters
Delilah and Adeline and moved them to Coffee County, where they lived
among the Johnsons and Pridgens from Sampson County.  (One of the latter
was John Wright Pridgen, who named a son Allen Wright Pridgen).
   Mary Adeline (called May Adeline) married Max Strickland and had 13
children: Andrew J., Argie, Alvie Addie, Nettie Virginia, Alto Lee,
James LaFayette, Hanse Monroe, Vada M. (male), R. F. (called Ruff),
Erwin Major, Claude (female), Irone and Lois.  The name "Hanse" may come
from "Hanson," as Mary Adeline and Delilah had a brother named Hanson
Wilson, who served as a Confederate soldier.  They also had another
brother who served in the Confederate army but I don't know his name; it
may have been Lee and/or Grant, as Delilah's son Lee Grant said that he
was named "for one of Ma's brothers."
   Delilah married George Soasbe Johnson and had 12 children: John
Irvin, George Monroe, Luvenia Ione, Molsy Dosha, Joseph Perry, Beatrice,
C. Alice, Ollie Louvada, Lee Grant, Soasbe Oscar, Chancy McLone and
Dempsey McLone.  George Soasbe Johnson's grandparents all came from
Sampson Co., NC to Coffee Co., AL.  He and Delilah were also certainly
cousins.
   That is all for now and I'm looking forward to hearing from you
again, as it seems our Wilsons may be connected.
   Kathlyn J. Folmar

Paulette,

I have a good many Segrests in among my "cousins", and I was wondering
if we had any connections. Among the Segrests I have are: Mamie Sellers
Segrest (1893-1967) m. Archie Homer Kilpatrick (1886-1973); Fermor C.
Segrest
(1875-1944) m. Minnie Lou Braswell (1873-1948). Have others too but these
are the most promimant.

Hi ladies,
Hope all is well. I took a drive up around Franklin, Al. north of Monroeville
and came across an old unnamed cemetery with the following names. Do you have
any of these in your info/data base?

cemetery is just north of Franklin,Al off hwy 41 - turn right (east) on dirt
rd across from hwy 17 (paved, goes west) down approx 2 miles on left:

Joseph Sellers                          wife Mary A. Frye
3/16/1827-4/18/1885                 6/29/1831-12/17/1915

Sallie Sellers (more than likely daughter to above) husband A.J.McKinley
1/24/1850-11/10/1935                                2/1/1848-1/26/1892

Josephine Sellers (also, more than likely       husband John Hardy Richardson
daughter to above) 4/12/1861-4/18/1924      2/4/1851-9/28/1928


thanks,
Edward
