MY "SOWELL" CONNECTION IS WITH MY GRANDFATHER, ELON SOWELL. HE IS FROM THE SAN AUGUSTINE (ATTOIAC COMMUNITY) AREA. IF YOU OR YOUR ANCESTOR ARE FROM THIS AREA, THEN WE MAYBE RELATED.

My husband's family is from this area. Some of them are buried in the Attoyac Cemetary. Others are in the Sowell Cemetary. Can you give me some names?

MARTY, THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSE. mY GRANDFATHER'S NAME IS ELON SOWELL, HIS FATHER NAME BEGAN WITH AN M, BUT i AM NOT CERTAIN. HIS SISTER MARY LIVES NEAR THE CEMETARY, AND E.Z. LIVED NEAR IT (DIED IN FEB. 99). HE HAS A NEPHEW NAMED ED SOWELL WHO LIVES IN LUFKIN, TX. MY GRANDMOTHER'S MAIDEN NAME IS GARRET HER PEOPLE ARE ALSO AT THAT LITTLE CEMETARY WAY BACK IN THE WOODS, DOWN THAT WINDING DIRT ROAD, NEAR THAT LITTLE OLD BAPTIST CHURCH ( ST. PAUL ??). YOU CAN SEE AUNT MARIE'S HOUSE FROM THE STEPS OF THE CHURCH. IF WE ARE FROM THE SAME FAMILY, YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHO WHERE I'M TALKING ABOUT.

Which Sowell Cemetary are you referring to? Would it be in San Augustine county, Texas?
If so, my relatives are all buried there.

Gayle, I am talking about several cemetaries that I visited a few weeks ago with my husband, Jerry Wilcoxen. We went to the Attoyac Cemetary, Blue Springs Cemetary and the old Sowell Cemetary that is down the road from Cynthia Thacker's home off Hwy 103. Who would be your relatives that are buried there? Cynthia can name the graves there by heart practically. You might want to contact her. She was very helpful to me in my search. Talk to you later-Marty

Hi, Marty.
I don't recall if I answered your e-mail, but when I saw it this morning, I decided to get to it. Yes, the Sowell Family cemetery is my family's. My dad's grandfather(?) donated the land for it. My grandmother, Ella Elizabeth Steptoe and her husband, Lonnie Ransom Steptoe are both buried there. My Grandmother was a Sowell before she married Grandpa. All of my family is buried there. Glad you wrote!

My husband is Elon Dudley Sowell, Jr., his father Elon Dudley Sowell, Sr. and his grandfather Alfred Samuel Sowell. They came to Florida from Alabama approx. 1930. I believe the "Elon" name must be a connection here. That is not a common name. Let me hear from you on other family members.

My father's family is from St.Augustine. My grandmother Ora Lee (Sowell)Richardson is your grandfather's sister. The family reunion is held each year in October on the 2nd Sunday at the church.

Hello, Angela

I wanted to make a correction on my last e-mail. Actually, Elon Sowell is my grandmother's uncle(Ora Lee Sowell Richardson.) My grandmother's father is Marshall Sowell, your grandfather's brother. Ed Sowell, is my grandmother's brother.
Hope this helps..
