Jennifer Heininger, my husband thinks you are talking about his uncle known as Bud. He is dead and I don't know any dates but I do know 1 son named (nicknamed) Dick. Darrel said your GGmother's maiden name was Yates. Your GGfather's name was Elbert. His brothers were Owen Joseph Jackson Sargent (b 4-11-1916, d 2-2-1982), Frank, Vonnie Edward (My father-in-law; b 6-29-26, d 7-25-89), James. Owen and Vonnie are buried in Old Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Cordova, AL. The others are all dead but I don't have any dates. Bud's sisters are Catherine Sargent Colburn (b 3-19-17, d 1990's), Gussie Sargent Goodman (You've heard of the Happy Goodman's Gospel singing group, that's her; she has passed but I don't know the dates although I know it was after 1983 because she came to our wedding), Flossie Sargent Nix (still living), Bonnie Sargent. The only child I know of is Dick Sargent. Darrel said Bud only actually served 1 1/2 yrs in prison. Bud's parents were William A. Sargent (b 7-20-1875 in Burnwell, Walker Co., AL., d unknown) and Mary Nancy Ann Williams (b 9-19-1881 in Winston Co., AL, d Jasper, Walker Co., AL). I believe they are buried in Burnwell. Williams parents were Joseph and Sarah Teal Sargent(no dates). Nancy's parents were Jack Williams and Elizah Woody Wiliams (also no dates). Darrel works 11-7 6 nights a week, but you can email or call on Saturdays or Sundays for more information. Our email is Mailing address is 4708 Hwy 78 E Jasper, AL 35501. Phone is 205-221-1148. What we don't know, we can put you in touch with other family members here that fill you in. Sincerely, Carol.

Hi Carol, I noticed you have a Flossie listed as still living in your family. I'm looking for a Flossie who was born November 29, 1924. When was your Flossie born? Thanks, Kelley

Flossie Nix

Darrel has an aunt Flossie Nix that lives in the Burnwell community outside of Dora, AL. Her late husband was a Church of God preacher and she lives close by the church and cemetery where most of the Sargent family is buried. We hardly ever see her because Darrel works the night shift in the mines and we don't go anywhere.

I hope this information helps. You could call David Sargent (Darrel's cousin) and get her address and phone number. His phone number is 205-483-7440. I'm sorry I don't know his address. He does have a computer but I lost his email address. If you executed a search with his phone no. you could probably get both. It could be under his wife's name Jean.

Let me know if I can help stir you to other relatives--I get Darrel to tell me about them and then try to remember to tell you.

All I know about my great grandfather is that his name was Matt/Matthew Sargent (could have spelling variations), and that he was from the Harlan area. Do you have any informaton? It would be greatly apreciated.

It is very doubtful. Joseph Sargent who m. Sarah Teal/Tell was the son of William Sargent and Nancy Purvis, m. 1842 Troup Co GA. William arrived in GA in 1824, from either NC or Maine (there are conflicting records on this). He moved around west GA and east AL for several years before settling permanently in Tallapoosa Co AL, where he died. Most of his children remained in AL, except for one son who later moved to TX. William is not believed to have had any relatives in GA.
