George Patterson Cruikshank burial site?
« on: Wednesday 25 November 15 17:46 GMT (UK) »

 

Today at 11:35 AM 







Hi, I saw a submission on Find a Grave of Marcus Cruikshank and was wondering if anyone knew the whereabouts of his father, my 4th Great-Grandfather George Patterson Cruikshank born June 3, 1793 in Rhynie, Aberdeen, Scotland. He moved to Alabama and married Lovedy Campbell McNeil. He was a tailor and was shot by one of his customers of the time. My 3rd Great-Grandfather, Dr. Walter Cyrus Cruikshank is brother to Marcus Cruikshank.
I'm sorry I am going on and on, please forgive me, I am new to this site. I just thought that someone might know if one or either of my relatives are buried around the same place and if so maybe you could give me the name of the cemetery so I could look it up. Thank you so much. :)

Welcome to Rootschat.

A tree on Ancestry has his death as 2nd Mar 1830 in Prattville, Autauga, Alabama. So if that is correct that might be where to start looking for his grave.

I am not sure of the gravesite but I am his daughter Lizys great great grandson and i own Her farm in Renfroe Al. I heard his killer escaped and went to Texas. I also own a 1860 medical book that belonged to Marcus and have a good picture of Marcus. Lizzy is buried in Oak Hill cem. Talladega Al. Henry Sims her husband is buried in Mardisville Al. I would like to see GPC obit. in the Autaga newspaper.

Hi, thanks for the information. I am glad to hear from you.
His killer did escape to Texas and went on to become someone special in the military.
I would love to see a picture of the book and your picture someday.
I got most of my information from Luginbuel's funeral home and word of mouth from family.
Here is the link...
