Family Tree Road Blocks

Journal by Robin Miner

I have been resarching my family tree forr 5 years now and have a few major road blocks.

The first is with Alexander M. Delaney. He was born 25 Nov 1825 in SC, Died 26 Oct 1882 in Dixie County, FL. He married Roadblock #2 - Mary A. Roebuck abt 1850. She was born Nov 1838 inn GA, and died in 1913 in Dixie County, FL.

I have photos of Alex's grave, but no Mary. She re-married a David Farmer Ward and I have been unable to locate her tombstone in Dixie County. I read a long time ago, and can't find the site now, that her parents are buried near her.

My road blocks are that I do not know who either one of these two's parnets were. If anyone is from that area, please let me know if you can check the Rock Sink Baptist Church Cemetery in Old Town. Beacuse I did not know that Mary had re-married, I didn't look past ALexfor a grave for her.

Major block #3 is with my great grandparents. I know a lot about my great grandfather, Charles AMos Entrekin, but his wife Emma is another story. I have the surname Chappell and Culpepper associated with her and can't seem to find out much more. She died (Emma C. Entrekin) the 6 Feb 1963 in Carroll County, GA and is most likely buried at the Mt. Zion Baptist Church Cemetery in Mt. Zion, GA. If anyone can find out about her, I would be so pleased.

Block #4 is with my 3rd Great grandfather: Washington Knowles (Noles, Knoles) who married Nancy McDonald. He died abt 1868 in Columbia COunty, FL. She was born in Scotland and died abt 1870 iin Columbia Co.,FL.

Block #5 is Nathaniel J. Patterson, Sr. and wife Eleanor C Unknown.
They are buried at Burnt Fort Cemetery in Camden County., GA. He was bron in 1787 in Beauford Dist., SC and died in 1883. She was born 1795 in SC and died 16 Sept 1859 in Jefferstonton, Camden Co.,GA.

Other roadblocks are John Joseph Sanderlin and wife Catherin, John Hicks, born 12 Jul 1773 in Randolf CO., NC and his unknown wife, William Dean and wife Jane Sessions.
