Clinton, Alabama Ralph Hanson Correspondence
Thanks for your response. Yeah, I have already posted on Rod Bush's site. I'm hoping that someone who lives in that area will respond. I live in Houston and that's a long way to go not knowing where to start my search.

Great to hear from you. There is a pretty good GenWeb site on Greene County located at http://home.earthlink.net/~rodbush/GreeneHP.htm that has some cemetery records. The state archives in Montgomery might be of assistance as well. Other than that, I donít know where Iíd go. There are so many small cemeteries out there. Clinton has 4 or 5 that I know of and probably more than that.
Mt. Hebron and Clinton are pretty close together, so a trip over there may yield some results. Most of the cemeteries are on the main highway between the two towns (or what is left of the towns).

Subject: Clinton, AL
My grandparents lived about midway between Clinton and Mt. Hebron (Beat), Al on their plantation called the "Sands" in the 1850s. My gggrandfather was Jefferson Reynolds, born 1812 in SC and died on July 15, 1853 in Greene Co., AL. My gggrandmother was Lavinia (Ricks) Reynolds born 1827 in NC and died on November 4, 1853 in Greene Co., Alabama. Their farm had about 455 cultivated acres and was sold at public auction in 1855, I believe, to a P.P. Barham. I am searching for the cemetery where my gggrandparents are buried. I suspect it would be either in Mt. Hebron or Clinton, Alabama. My question to you is do you have a list of cemeteries in that area? Good luck in your endeavors.
