The Drew Walsh Family
Pictured above are descendants of Drew Walsh and Amanda Perritt. Drew is a brother of the other Walsh men whose families are depicted in these photos. All of this family is from out of town, as Drew moved from Concord to Holmes County, Florida, and then to Louisiana. Dora Coffey is the only grandchild of Drew's and Amanda's present. From left, from row: Sue Coffey, daughter of Dora; Dora Coffey, daughter of Martha Illinois Walsh Dupree; Shirlie Baxter, daughter of Wayne Walsh; and Delores Gallien. Back row: Barbara Hollis, daughter of Lura V. Walsh Holland; and her husband Don Hollis.
The Jordan V. Vickers Family
Pictured above are descendants of Jordan V. Vickers and Idella Barber. Jordan was the brother of Don Albin Vickers and son of Jordan and Mary Vickers buried in this cemetery. He moved to the Whigham, Georgia, area, and many of his descendants are from Georgia. Pictured are Mark Hinkley on the right, son of Louise Vickers Hinkley; with his son, Steven and wife, Janice.
The Edward "Ned" Walsh Family
Ned Walsh was the brother of all the other Walsh men in our photos. He married Virginia "Jenny" Connell. They have other living descendants, but Venice Walsh, a grandson, is the only one present. Venice is the son of Homer Bartow Walsh and Minnie Vickers. Sitting with Venice is his cousin from the Pat Walsh family, 4-year old Jackson Miller.
The Alfred Vickers Family
Alfred Vickers, son of Joshua and Martha "Patsy" Vickers, is buried in this cemetery, with his wife, Matilda Brady. Although they have no stones, it is believed that they are buried on the top row of the cemetery, where only faint depressions give evidence of unmarked graves. Pictured is Lucille Mills Dalton, whose mother was Ora Vickers Mills, whose father was Ephraim Vickers, whose father was Alfred Vickers.
The Mamie Vickers Brady Family
Mamie Vickers, daughter of Lal and Mary Ann Vickers and granddaughter of Jordan and Mary Vickers buried in this cemetery, married Solomon Brady. Solomon and Mamie are buried in this cemetery, and although they have many descendants, this year only Earl and Michelle Brady and their grandson, Brady Wilson, were able to attend. Earl is a grandson of Sol and Mamie, and through Mamie descends from both Jordan and Mary Vickers Vickers, so he descends from both lines of Vickers. Michelle is a descendant of Andrew Jackson Johnson and Dora Vickers of this cemetery. Dora Vickers was a daughter of Ezekiel and Arrena Vickers Vickers, so Michelle descends from both lines of Vickers, since Ezekiel was the son of Martha "Patsy" Vickers, and Arrena Vickers was the daughter of Bryant and Frances Vickers. Since both Earl and Michelle descend from both lines of Vickers, about seven generations back, they have a very rich Vickers heritage to pass to their children and grandchildren.
The Jacob and Melissa Perkins Stephens Family
Barbara and Neil Stephens are both descendants of Jacob and Melissa Perkins Stephens of this cemetery. Additionally, on her mother's side (Pearl Stephens Poppell), Barbara descends from James B. Perkins and Evelyn Vickers, and Evelyn's parents, Alfred and Matilda Brady Vickers, and Alfred's mother, Martha "Patsy" Vickers. On her father's side (Raymond Poppell), Barbara descends from Sarah Alwilda Vickers Poppell, sister of Don Albin Vickers and Jordan V. Vickers, who is buried in the Concord Cemetery with husband, Vernon Gandy Poppell. Barbara has a very rich heritage in the Vickers Cemetery, descending from Vickers multiple ways, Bradys, Perkins, and Stephens.
