Rule LineSHAKING YOUR FAMILY TREE: QUERIES 1998


I invite you to enter a query for your Morgan County ancestors but because of our limited space, please limit to only Morgan County ancestors. If you aren't sure what part of Alabama your relative was born, died or resided in, might I suggest checking the Alabama Federal Census Index, usually located at your local library or Historical Society or Genealogical Society for the time frames before and after the one you think they would be in. Enter your query information exactly as you want it to appear including the name of the county in case of misdirection with one exception, please enter the surnames in capital letters. Every effort will be made to post your queries as soon as possible. Once the queries have been archived for a year, I do not pull them back into my computer. So if you change your email address please send me a new query.

To submit a query email Kathy



The Morgan County Surnames page serves as a name index to the queries.

SELF/GORE

SELF, Malcoln Thomas Self, born December 20, 1848 in Wilkes Co., Ga.; died January 1, 1916 in Eva, Morgan Co., Alabama. He was the son of John Drury Self (born March 4, 1818 in Edgefield Co., SC,died January 11, 1884 in County Line, Douglas co., Ga.) and Louisa Grimsley (born 1821 in Lincoln Co., Ga. and died May 20. 1856 in Wilkes Co.,Ga.) Malcolm married Charlotte L. Gore on September 20, 1870 in Douglas Co., Ga. I don't know what year they moved to Morgan Co., Al. His mother had 9 children before her death. One of these was my g-g- grandmother Lucinda Helen Self who married Zolpha Mozley and moved to Nixon Chapel, Marshall Co., Al. in 1904. When my cousin Doug Wilson came to Alabama looking for relatives, he said that he found descendents in Morgan Co. who pointed him to Cindy and her family. There is also two families of Strawns(Vinnie and Dosie married brothers. They are J.D.'s children by his second wife, Leah W. Watson (Clark) who he married November 20, 1856. J.D. was a Baptist Minister, a blacksmith, and a buggy maker. Another brother, Charles Hawkins married Georgia Ann Sansom, a neice of Emma Sansom. I would appreciate any information anyone can give me and I would like to contact any descendents of Malcolm's family. I found the Strawns in Gadsden. Disie had 15 children, three died within days of each other from Diptheria. Some of her grandchildren still live in Gadsden. One of her sons is still living in SC but is in very poor health. My mother remembers talk of Thompsons that she associated with the Selfs, but I can find no connection there. There was an "Aunt" Mary Thompson and "Uncle" Bert Thompson. THey had children named Selena, Ethel, May, Georgia, Marzee, and possibly Asa. My garandfather's brother also remember these people, he is the one who gave me all these names. One of mu uncle's other brothers mentioned the Thompsons also as cousins of Emma Sansom. I am at a loss to know who there people are because I have accounted for all of Grannny's brothers and sisters. Unce Howard Mozley, the uncle I mentioned that wrote the letter lived in Decatur at the time of the events he wrote about so I am hoping someone up there will know something. P.O.

DAVIDSON

My g-g grandfather, Joshua Davidson, settled in Morgan County, Alabama, prior to 1820, then after 1830 went to Illinois. I believe that he had Davidson cousins in Marshall County. In a letter written back to Illinois from Tennessee during the Civil War, Major Henry Davidson, a son of Joshua, says that when they were stationed at Fort Henry they went back from the river to a creek for a drink and found a Confederate muster roll which read:"We the undersigned agree to serve twelve months as a cavalry company in the service of the Southern Confederacy under the command of Captain H Minur, - - Ledbetter, 1st Lieut., and David Davidson, 2nd Lieut." Then in a list of some 80 privates were the names of William Davidson and Nathaniel Davidson. The letter goes on to say that Henry Davidson supposes they were of the old William Davidson stock as their home was in Marshall County near Dittoes Landing. He says, "Mother, I am only about 200 miles from where I was born and I must say that it brings strong emotions to my breast to hear the songs of the spring birds and see so much that brings memories of my boyhood days."Joshua's father was Golden Davidson, whom I have traced to Patrick County, VA, prior to 1800.

I have been searching for a ggg grandfathers name. He had a son Moses Riley Weston who stated in his military records he was born in Morgan county Alabama in 1826. He signed up[ for the War With Mexico under Capt. Henry Clay at Summitt Alabam in 1846 and died 2 months later in Meir Mexico and was buried at camp. Does anyone of any information on any early WESTON pioneers in the Morgan county area. They seemed to have operated mills later on. Could have there also. Moses Riley Weston's mothers name was Elizabeth Julia Weston. She could have had a daughter Lydia from a previous marriage. Possibly a Hodge as a maiden name. She later had two more children Jasper Newton WEston and Nephanny Weston circa 1828-1830. THeir father could have died in the 1833-1840 time period as Elizabeth Julia Weston appears to be a widow in the 1840 census in Marshall county. 2095 county Road 57 Blountsville, AL 35031
