My great grandfather, Harrison Bray, is supposed to be buried somewhere in Augusta, Georgia. One relative vaguely remembers visiting the cemetery where he was buried, but no living descendants remember where in Augusta. One descendant thinks she remembers that there was a mix up in the graves. Harrison Bray was still alive in 1940 as he is on the 1940 Clarke County, GA, census.  He went to live with relatives in Augusta in his later years. His wife died in Charleston, SC, 1955 and she was a widow. Harrison was born in the 1870's if his age on census records is correct. It varies with 10 years on assorted census records. Is his a brick wall or what? :)

Looking for Cosby Dickinson who married Hannah A. Cockraham Jan. 14, 1800 Augusta, Richmond Co., GA. Cosby is sometimes spelled Colby. Dickinson is sometimes spelled Dickerson, Dickenson could be other spellings. Hannah A. Cockraham is sometimes Cockerhain They appear on the 1830 census and 1840 census then they disappear.
Cosby (spelled Colby)  Dickinson administered the estate of his father inlaw David Cockraham the notice appeared in the Augusta Chronicle Oct. 25, 1800. Then again on August 29, 1807 There is one by Cosby Dickinson that stated that he is Co-owner with Samuel McNeeliey who died and he is advising the creditors to pay. Apparently they manufactured billiard table cause there are several for sale adds listed.  Also the 1840 census has Cosby's occupation listed as manufacturing. Cosby Dickinson/ Dickerson also won a draw in the 1827 land Lottery.
Hannah A. Dickinson owns a Millenary Store she has a advertisment in the newspaper Nov. 7, 1807 I need to know where they went and what their childrens names are.  Any help will be deeply appreciated.

I am looking for the parents of Mary Ann Davis the second wife of John Bridwell.  John Bridwell left Greenville County SC around 1822/23. There he had been married to Rachel Cox and they had a large family. He is next found in Edgefield county with Mary Ann Davis. No marriage has been located.

He and Mary Ann end up in Richmond County. They also have a large family and are the head of most of the Bridwell family from the area.

I believe that Mary Ann's brother is George Davis who married Margaret King in Richmond Co. on 10 Jul 1835. I believe Mary Ann's sister may be Jane Davis who married  Jesse King in Richmond County 17 May 1832.

I believe Mary Ann's mother may have been a Mary who was living with Jane Davis King and her family in the 1850 Census.

Can you help in identifying Mary Ann's parents?

I am desperately trying to find some information on my g-g-g-great uncle - Benjamin Headden.  He lived in Augusta around 1840 and was supposed to have been a fairly well-known artist in the area.

Several years ago, I corresponded with Ed Cashin who told me he had written about Benjamin in his book on the history of Augusta, but he was unable to help with a question I had.
Here is all the info I have on Benjamin:
According to family history, he won a nation-wide contest for painting the best life-size portrait of George Washington on his white horse.  Family stories say the painting hung in the Augusta City Hall.  Benjamin's  nephew and great niece said they saw it on visis to Augusta.  The niece visited in 1935.
According to an article in a Greenville, SC newspaper, Benjamin was killed in train wreck somewhere around Greensboro, GA.  He was almost 27 at the time of his death.  The following is an excerp from the article:
"...the deceased was a native of Greenville, S.C., where he has left an aged father, mother, brothers, sisters, and other relatives...He had established...fame in his profession as an artist, seldom equalled, never surpassed..."
According to the article, he had been married for 7 months.  The article states that "an embankment gave way, the train plunged into the chasm, and several were injured, but Mr. Headden's death is the only one mentioned."
About 29 years ago, I acquired a painting that I am pretty sure was one of Benjamin's - it was located in a back closet at the Headden homeplace in Cassville, GA where my g-g-great granfather William lived after the Civil War.  HIs daughter had saved the painting along with portraits of William and his wife when the federal troops burned the house.  William and Benjamin were brothers.  A distant cousin in West Tennessee has 3 more portraits - Benjamin's parents and a cousin.
I would like to know if the Washington painting exists and if there is any information about Benjamin.  I have not been able to locate a copy of the Cashin book

Thanks for any information anyone might be able to provide.

We are trying to find the parents of Thomas and John HOPKINS. Thomas HOPKINS came to Augusta, GA from "Maryland". His brother, John HOPKINS, went to Savannah. Thomas HOPKINS married Rebecca LAMBETH, Nov 2, 1837 in Richmond County. Both Thomas and Rebecca are buried in
Magnolia Cemetery.....Thomas in April, 1848, and Rebecca in Oct, 1894. His business:     "AUGUSTA IRON AND BRASS FOUNDRY" COTTON AND WOOLENS MACHINERY AND GEARING FOR FACTORIES -    THOMAS HOPKINS (ads in Augusta Chronicle, 1847 and 1848....or until his death)

Thomas Hopkins     A. 122     (Thomas and John J. Hopkins, brothers)  married Rebecca Lambeth or Lambert:
Buried 4/17/1848  Native of Maryland.  Wheelwright.  Died of consumption at 33 years.  (Born.  c. 1815)  (No notation of burial but he is buried beside Rebecca). We know quite a lot about Thomas & Rebecca Hopkins' children:
Thomas Newton Hopkins (1839-1893) born & died in Augusta; married VIRGINIA DELAIGLE.    They had seven children  (these were my gg grandparents)     Virginia, was the child of CHARLES DELAIGLE & MARTHA WATKINS. 
Other children of Thomas & Rebecca:

Martha Hopkins, Isaac Stiles Hopkins, Harriett B. Hopkins, Edward B. Hopkins, and Rebecca C. Hopkins.
There is one HOPKINS buried in Magnolia Cemetery that we have questions about.  He died of consumption, and Thomas Hopkins died of consumption.   Not that it was all that rare at that time, but it gave us pause for thought.....John Hopkins  (A75) Buried 10/7/1836 - Native England - Died Consumption 54 years.  (Born c. 1782) (Could be Hopkins parent?  Age and cause of death make it plausible.  No notation of burial site nor did I come across a stone in any of the sites I found).

I have researched everywhere for a JOHN A. OLIVER, born in 1817 around Elberton, GA and was last in the 1900 Census for Clarke Co. as a "boarder". His son was the Rev. John Henry Oliver, a long time resident of Augusta who is buried with many family members in Westover Cemetery. Since JOHN A. was an advanced age I thought perhaps he may have come to live with his son in his later years and be buried there in Augusta, even maybe in Westover but I cannot get any verification. Any information would be helpful.
