Thanks Betty. I have data on Henry and Rowenna's children, such as date of birth/death and place of burial. I also have located the gravesite of Henry and Roenna, with their daughters Sally and Mat (knicknames). Two small children are also buried with them on Henry's farm where he lived until he died in 1909. The grave site has been bulldozed and leveled. (The person that destroyed the gravesite is also a decendent of Henry and Rowenna, and died 6 years ago, I knew him well...) I have a map from the Union County Soil Conservation Service from 1938 with the gravesite clearly marked. My father has written a list of everyone buried there and I plan to investigate futher into placing a marker at the grave site. I have the landowner's name and the sharecropper's name and address.
Tom Stegall purchased the farm from Henry and Roenna's children approx. 1910. It has been known as the Tom Stegall farm since. The log cabin that was home to Henry and his family was used for storage for several years after Tom Stegall built a two story house beside the log house. The Tom Stegall house was demolished approx 10 years ago and there are no buildings on the property now. A large live oak tree (approx 4 ft in diameter) stands beside the short driveway (which was used for both houses) from Fountain Hill Church Road where Henry lived. I visited the site 3 weeks ago and was saddened to see all the buildings gone and the fields planted in cotton, with cotton planted over the gravesite. It is now part of a large field and the sharecropper doesn't know that the cemetery exist. I plan to contact the landowner this week and request permission to enter the property to visit and reestablish the cemetery. If he refuses, I plan to contact the clerk of court of Union County and request a court order to reestablish righ-of-way and visitation rights. Any suggestions will be appreciated. PS. The original farm consist of 158 acres with a 4 acre pond. The entire farm is still intact.
