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? :)

They appear on the 1830 census and 1840 census then
Colby) Dickinson administered the estate of his father inlaw David Cockraham the notice appeared in

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

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?

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.
all the info I have on Benjamin:
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
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.
