      Hi Roger,

      Yes you did send me the picture. The Tucker photo that you sent would not have been Jane Tucker considering that she was born circa 1760 or so. Willis Carpenter was born 1783 and died 1877 according to family hisotry. I never have figured out who the Tucker is in the photo.

      Thomas Carpenter (1820 on tombstone or 1826 in family Bible - 1913) in Madison County, Alabama was the son of Willis Carpenter and Elizabeth "Betsy" Ross. As far as I know, the family line did not travel down through Georgia. They came from North Carolina to Tennessee and then settled in north Alabama. Willis Carpenter was the son of John Carpenter and Jane Tucker of North Carolina and they traveled to Madison County with son, Willis, and died there. I do not have names of other children for John and Jane.

      Is your Thomas Carpenter related to the Thomas M. Carpenter (1810-1853) of Carroll Co., GA who married Lucinda Barrow?

      There is a Little Cove Road close to Gurley in Madison County. It runs through the Hampton Cove neighborhood now. On this road is Jenkins Cemetery, which is an old cemetery in the area. Could this be the cemetery in question?  A neighborhood has built up around the cemetery, but it still rests in a clump of trees there in the middle of all those houses. For years, it could be accessed from Little Cove Road, but now to get to it, you have to drive into the neighborhood and go in the back of the cemetery. I'm sorry but I don't know the neighborhood name.  I grew up in New Hope but have lived in Texas for many years. One of the families buried in the cemetery is the Childress family, and Hugh Martin Childress was the sweetheart of my g-grandmother, Hester Chandler. He was killed in the Battle of Baton Rouge on August 5, 1862, and Hester married Thomas Carpenter in 1863. I had to search for the cemetery about 12 years ago and then again 2 years ago.

      It is not listed either in Jackson, Madison, DeKalb, Etowah or Marshall County in my cemeteries book. Perhaps someone in the Group knows where Little Cove is?

      I was wondering if anyone could tell me where Little Cove Cemetery is located?  I am not sure if it is in Jackson or Madison Co., AL...
