A note at the bottom says: "The Blackjack Church at one time sat across the road from the cemetery. But the building fell into disrepair and was torn down about 1920. Several of the people buried at the cemetery were victims of Typhoid Fever, i.e. the WOOLDRIDGE children. Martha TRANTHAM was the WOOLDRIDGE children's maternal grandmother. There are approcimately 20 unidentified graves. This information supplied by W. Guy ROGERS and Mrs. Virgil PAULETTE".

I have the census for all years so if you need to see what children are listed, please email me privately at

I also have the History Book and cemetery book, as well as a list of the probate..

Listed in a probate envelope at the Alton Library, under the packet #1200, is listed:

Trantham, Z. S.
Estate of Z.S. Trantham
Admin: M.A. Trantham
Filed: 31 Mar 1876

Contact someone locally or the probate office to see if you can get additional info. I do not live in the area. There are several TRANTHAMs probate packets listed, as well as WOOLDRIDGE.

Good luck!
