Could you please add the "Pleasant Grove" to the name of the Long Bridge Cemetery? Older death certificates list the cemetery as Pleasant Grove. Thank you.

RE: Mollie Summerall
The transfer isn't necessary, but thank you. So many people are unwilling to do so... I'm working on the entire cemetery where the baby is buried. As long as they are linked, I'm happy! Perhaps a relative will one day request a transfer from both of us...that's the ultimate reward!

Greenlawn Cemetery Lakeland Georgia
I do not know if you created the Find A Grave site for Greenlawn Cemetery or only added the photo?
I did want to inform you that Greenlawn and City Cemeteries in Lakeland, Georgia are one in the same although listed as separate places on Find A Grave.
These cemeteries need to be merged. If you did create Greenlawn please contact Find A Grave about merging it with City.

I went to Rockwell Cemetery today, but was not able to find a headstone for Fletcher Griffis. If you are certain that there is one there, I would be willing to return there and try again.

Mary Westberry
Mary is buried in section 10 block 2 and Leon Harper and wife are buried in section 8 center block. There are several section separating them. Is Mary Westberry a relative of the Harpers? There is a Mary Harper Brock buried in I believe section 8 west block. There is several in Evergreen with the Harper maiden name. There is one Mary Harper listed that dies not give a plot location.

Hi there! I just wanted to give you a heads up that I added the obituaries of Alice and Henry Wells on your Find A Grave pages. I hope this helps in your genealogy research!

Ivan & Violet Duncan
I just wanted to let you know that I looked through the cemetery at Hilltop Cemetery for Ivan & Violet. I found Ivan, but I could not find Violet. I will go back after the snow is off the ground to make sure I did not just miss it, but she is definitely not next to Ivan unless it is an unmarked grave. Just wanted to let you know. Happy Holidays!! Nan

RE: Ruby and Leon Harper
You're very welcome. I think the memorials belong with family. They have a lot of family. If someone closer comes along you can transfer to them. They have a lot of children. From the obituary they were great people. You should start yourself a virtual cemetery to link all the family together . I have one. The contributors that created the memorials are in the area where the graves are located so I leave the management with them. Find a Grave is a great tool when we all work together. Take lots of pictures and add the names. It will be appreciated. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. God bless and have a glorious day.

RE: Ruby and Leon Harper
Good evening,
You are very welcome. I am glad I could help. I have listed over 12000 graves at Evergreen Cemetery. I have 58 named Carter and 18 named Harper. I see they had nine children surviving them. Wiregrass Irish Eyes had the Harper parents listed in Blachshear Georgia. I found some information on I am sure there is probably some links with some so the other Carters in Evergreen. The memorials are fairly new. Some more family will probably come along with some more information. There is still around 50,000 graves at Evergreen not listed on Find a Grave. I have been adding pictures as time allows. I have around 20,000 photos in my Evergreen file. It can get addicting. God bless.

RE: Alice Wells
Unfortunately I don't have any other info on Alice or Henry Wells, but if you need any info on the lineage of Nanny Wells Fearnow (their daughter and Willard's sister), I have that. You can message me at jfearnow at gmail dot com if you want more information. Do you know if your family has any pictures of Henry S. Wells? PS - I just noticed that it looks like you swapped the birth and death dates of Alice and Henry. Thanks again! -Jessica

I don't know if there are any photos in my mother's collections of her when young. I don't remember any I have seen other than older ones. I will check.
