Inquiry on a memorial
Jessie, I saw that you posted flowers on the memorial for Warren Kelly Winskey. Did you know him? He was my dad's brother and I have been trying to find some relatives. My dad was Gordon Winskey and was born in Sylvania. The Winskey family plot is in cemetery in Screven County.

I don't have the information you're looking for, but John A. Edenfield is my great great grandfather. So we share a chromosome or two!

John Edenfield
Ms. Taylor, my records show that John Edenfield, 1829/30-1893 was brother to William, and son to Hiram and Mary Nix Edenfield. I am so happy to find someone who is also searching Edenfields, I am looking for William and John's brother James, I believe he is my Third great grandfather, but am unable to prove it. Do you have any info on him? he was born in Barnwell Sc, 1825, death unknown, family history has it that he was married to Mary Hammons/Hammonds circa 1850, and they had at least two children together, William was the oldest and is my second great grandfather. I am sorry, I digress, do you have any info on him?

thank you so much,

RE: Taylor
Thank you. Sometimes people post things even though they are not related and it can cause some confusion for families who are doing genealogy research. It was nice of you to do so. Thank you. Lucinda Anne Kirk Taylor was the 2nd wife of my great great grandfather Israel G. Taylor, and that is why I asked as, he had a son with his first wife that we have not been able to locate as well as he and his sister lived with someone while Israel went to fight during the Civil War and I am looking for that part of the family. Thanks again for your reply

Hi Jessie,

I'm the granddaughter of Fred Mark Parker, Jr. I've been researching my family tree over the last few years, and the info you have provided on the Taylor/Parker families have been a huge help to me! Thank you for all your hard work!
I'm trying to figure out exactly how we are related. Your husband is a Taylor? Who are his grandparents/ parents?

Henry Mims Jackson (1813-1900)
Hi Jesse, Trying to get some facts straight in my head. Henry would be the brother of Joel T Jackson (1811-1897). I see parents listed as John W Jackson and Sarah Elizabeth (Eliza) Hurst. However they were not married until 1829. Perhaps John was married before "Eliza"? Hmm?

George Michael Fries
Hey Jessie!
Do you have any info on George Michael Fries(1823-1896) buried in Pfeiffer Cemetery? Would like to know who his siblings are. I have tried unsuccessfully to locate him on census records at I'm pretty sure Anna Catherine Fries Getzinger Pfeiffer (1829-1907) was a sister. Wondering if Anthony Joseph Fries (1835-1882) of Brookville, Indiana was brother.

RE: Your parents
That is very sweet and kind of you to share those thoughts about mom and dad. I consider myself very fortunate to have had them as parents. I tell people all the time, if I can be half as good a person as they were...then I am doing good! Mom loved going to the nursing home every Sunday after church and lunch. It was part of her routine and she enjoyed taking flowers to the residents there. I miss them both tremendously. Thank you again for sharing those thoughts.

Thank you for the edit and the addition of the obituary, updates gladly made.

Do you know why the obituary shows her middle initial as "M"? I had received an earlier edit about a year ago to add a middle initial of "S" and a maiden name of Guinn.

This is not my own family line, I am happy to transfer to you if she was one of yours.

The memorial that you created on Sept.9,2015 for
Harold Wayne "ROCK" Howell Jr. #152090797,is in the as one internment for El Bethel Baptist church Cemetery, If you go to El Bethel Cemetery, you will find all the internments. I came across this recently while photographing the cemetery. Most of my husbands relatives are buried there. And we also live on the same dirt road as the cemetery (1/2 mile)from us. Thanks for all your hard work.

Have a blessed day'
