Could someone please do a cemetery or 1850 census search for me? I was told that these relatives are buried in Flint Hill Cemetery in Poplar Springs: Theodosia McEachern Newell (I think she was born in the first or second decade of 1800's, died in her 90s)and her husband David B. Newell, their daughter, Jane Newell Johnston, her daughter Laura Caroline Johnston Porter, b. 7/26/1860 in Marietta d. 4/6/12, and husband Martin Whitfield Porter, b. 12/25/1853 in Hiram d. 9/3/27 (he was a blacksmith for Southern Railway). I really want to know the missing dates, who the McEachern parents were ( I understand they had a farm neaar Kennesaw Mtn.), who was Jane's husband, who Porter's parents were, and anything else about the family! The Porters are my great grandparents.
I have a pass Theodosia had to go to her son, a confederate soldier who was ill in Richmond. I would love to know his name; it is not mentioned in the letter. Thank you so very much for any help! Lynne
