Affiliate record number 41622180 (1814 - 1864). Atlanta, Fulton, Georgia, United States of America, Oakland Cemetery.
Brick wall with GGrandfather Thompson Fields, b. 1798 or 1799 GA and m. Mary Polly Edwards b. 1800 VA 1818. I have Edwards back to 1400's. But Thompson Fields did not exist (according mine and many others research) before 1818, and that I (we) can find no obits or burial site for neither him nor his wife Mary Polly Edwards. 1850 census list Thompson Fields and family and Thomas Fields and family side by side with other Thompson's. I have believes for 15 years that Thompson Fields first name was named after his mother's maiden/surname or her father (his grandfather). Primarily because Thompson is more of surname instead of a first name. I realize you have been very active in adding many names here at and for that I am thankful. Hoping you or anyone seeing this message might help me to overcome this brick wall. Thanks be to all in advance. Lee R. Fields, leefields at centurytel dot net (Russellville/Dover, Pope County, Arkansas.

Oops! I didn't look on the photos page and I know better!! I also didn't think about my email address not being available thru the messages. Sorry about that. I'm batting a thousand, here! Ha! Well, I'm not sure if this is my William A Watson or not. If find that he is, I'll be back in touch. Thanks so much for your time and your help!

RE: Winnie A. Lunsford/Lynn
I spent considerable time looking for Winnie on the 1940 census and never have found her. She was not yet married to Roy because he was still living with his parents in Tattnall County. It's puzzled me.

RE: Winnie A. Lunsford/Lynn
I didn't realize she was at Yellow River with her mother. I have a large amount of information on the family. I've done genealogy for over 30 years. I loaded all I have onto and you can find it by searching for the family tree of Augustus Edwards Lunsford. He is my grandfather and was Winnie's father.

I put two pictures of Winnie on her site at Find a Grave. I doubt that all of the information will fit on Find a Grave.

Where did you live when you knew Aunt Winnie? I don't know where they lived.

RE: Winnie A. Lunsford/Lynn
I would like to know where Winnie is buried. She was my aunt. I have a picture of her as a young girl. Hers is a tragic story. I do not have a photo of her husband but do have a picture of John.

obits as photos
Hi Judy, Could you send me transcripts or gleaned facts from obits? Findagrave removes obits when they are posted as photos (when they find them) and I hate for all your work to be lost. Here is the pertinent guideline: "Please do NOT add newspaper article or obituary scans. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you. Do not copy and post photographs from obituary or funeral home websites (unless you personally are the photographer), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records."

Willam A Watson Memorial# 51993583
Hi Judy,
I believe that William A Watson is my 2nd great granduncle. Would it be possible for me to see a copy of his Death Certificate?

Thanks so much, for your time.

Kate Whitlock Maddox
You have incorrect information. I have just purchased a letter that was once owned by Mrs. Kate F. Maddox, the same lady you have written a sketch about her burial in Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, GA.
She was married to Charles K. Maddox, son of Posey Maddox. They were in Florida in 1910 and her husband must be buried there, as referenced in the news item you attached, great info. She married as K. F. Whitlock to Charles K. Maddox in 1866 in Dougherty Co., GA., that info is online at and at I am not related to these people but am planning to donate this 1859 letter about a picnic to Stone Mountain to the DeKalb History Center in Decatur. Mrs. Maddox saved the letter- an invitation to a picnic- endorsing it as saying that was when she first met HIM. The letter or invitation was mailed to Charlie- no last name.
So this is the lady. Hope you can modify your info.
Ken Thomas, Decatur, GA

RE: Rev. John Simpson Wilson
I'll try to check on Monday when I'm there, but I don't think the marker is readable, except a few words and letters around the edges.

Edmond and Piety Smithwick
In your neck of the woods this week and was going to go see if I could get a photo of 'our people' at the New Salem Cemetery of which there are three I have found out... I will email you a copy of the page in the Cobb County, Georgia Cemeteries book that shows there are no inscriptions on the graves in the sections where the Smithwicks are buried. You may already know this but it would be good to have it on their memorial...

Bennet and MS Harper
Hi Judy,
I know you may not know but do you think MS Harper#40758756 is the wife of Bennet Harper #40758695? Without you, there would be no findagrave. Thanks for your volunteer work.

question about memorial for Mrs.Stephens
I am wondering if you might can answer a few questions I have about the memorial for Mrs. Stephens #130400359. I read in the bio it is unmarked with only last name and death date. I am looking for my 3x great grandmother's grave Milly Stpehens. They were living in the Fairburn area in what was Campbell County at the time. Do you know if this cemetery is near that general area. I don't have a lot to go on. Her husband was Levy Stephens who moved to Alabama just before he died so he is buried in Low Gap Cemetery there. I am trying to narrow down if this might be her grave. Thanks. Tammy

Possible locations for Blake Bridges Brantley
Hi there,

I'm working with the Brantely tree, and found your note looking for information on where Blake Bridges Brantley and his wife Cora Mills could be buried, I have 2 ideas...

First, this looks like his son here,

Find A Grave Memorial# 137243618

2nd, it seems he was a veteran, and his death date was recorded with the VA, he could very well be buried at a veterans cemetery.

RE: Sarah Davis - Hollywood Cemetery
Thank you so much! It is the obituary that you posted that allowed me to make the connection. I followed her through the Atlanta citizens book and she changed address each year. Her last address on Luckie St matched the obituary you have posted. Her son George is also buried there and I will get them connected. I have been reluctant to visit the cemetery, since few people have mentioned the area is not very safe, but will reconsider now especially after locating Sarah Davis. Thank you so much for allowing this to happen with your hard work and dedication to this Cemetery.

Rev. Homer G. Smith
Hi Judy. THB here. Sorry about the mistake on Rev Homer showing Alma Street Northwest in lieu of Alma Street Southwest. Before he was at Venetian Hills he was a Hills Park Baptist Church on Annie Street Northwest just south of the corner of Alma Street Northwest in the Hills Park Community. He left Venetian Hills and went back to Hills Park and that's where he was where he lost his life. Rev Homer was my dad's 1st cousin and we used to visit him at both locations. So then you knew aunt Allene, Jane, Steve and Wayne but maybe not Jeff because he was older. I have connected with other family members that also when to Hills Park and Venetian Hills as well. Again thanks for the correct. Regards and Blessings, THB
