Information obtained from Hester Hettie McKeehan Sosebee’s family bible. She is the daughter of James William “Bill” McKeehan & Mary Rose Ella “Mollie” Blackburn. She lived in Tunnel Hill (Houston Valley) in a beautiful area just below the hill near Woods Station and Dick Mountain. She was in Whitfield County, but just SE of Catoosa, near the line. Her family were farmers and at one point, her grandfather had a small store at the adjacent corner off their road. Her parents were buried just East of Tunnel Hill in Dunigan Cemetery (a gorgeous place) located in Rocky Point. They did not lived in Ringgold, but that was the closest post office, so they were listed as having lived there. Kind of confusing when you are trying to find them on census reports. Hester presently lives in Chatsworth, Murray Co., GA. Most of her siblings are now deceased.
Loudusty was spelled many ways in documents, however, my dreict family called her "Loudusky". Other researchers suggest her first name was "Sarah", but my family did not know of that name. Her tombstone states only "Loudusty" as a first name.
Parents could be William and Eliza Myers, please let me know if this fits or if you agree with this, have any questions, comments or additions.
