Also Individual:Ransom Meadows [292808 Whatley-Cook.FTW]- "I have some handwritten records that show a Ransome Meadows m. Sarah Stephens 02/04/1808 and had 7 children. The following is an excerpt from personal pages (spelling is as found on original): Ransom Meadows --- Born December 25, 1786. Died April 2, 1863. Married Sarah Stephens February 4, 1808. Ransom Meadows was born in Coronade, Warren County, North Carolina. This is near Raleigh, N.C. He and his wife and several other relatives are buried in a large sepulchre or Mausoleum as we call them today. This is located on two acres of ground in Alexander City, Alabama. This was part of his large plantation and a provision was made in his will that if the land was ever divided and sold this two acres could not be included. This sepulchre is built of solid rock and was built by his slaves. At one time he owned more slaves than anyone in Coosa County. His plantation covered most of what is now known as Alexander City, Alabama.
From these same pages a note near Martha Meadows name says that they are buried in the sepulchre with Ransome and Sarah. I have searched through typed and handwritten notes from relatives past, and have found no references to Martha's children (if any) I hope this helps.
