According to information assembled by Lucy Deal Garland for 1978 McElveen reunion, America is buried at Lane's Church Cemetery.Her husband, William Emanuel, is buried at the McElveen FAmily Cemetery.I understand that work is currently being done to clear underbrush from the family cemetery.
While checking on this information for you I noted, that 3 of the children of William Emanuel and his first wife, Betsy Wise, died in 1858. Betsy died in 1857.No months on any of these.I "lose" my great-great grandfather, James H., brother of William Emanuel, between 1850 and 1860. Also can no longer locate his wife and two of their 3 children. They lived in Bryan Co. and attended the same Church (Deloatch PB) as brother, Moses Mc.I've often wondered if a disease or flu went through in that time frame.
Also, in recent weeks, I did research on Elias McElveen, brother of the William that came from South Carolina. He eventually settled in Southwest GA.If you would like this, send me your e-mail and I will forward it by attachment. My e-mail is HEBeasley@aol.com
