William Leonard Wood
Greetings Richard,
I am sorry to say I don't have a primary source for the burial of William Leonard Wood at Lower Hightower. The information came from descendants of Simeon Lavender Wood who state that it was passed down in their family that he was buried at Lower Hightower. I put a note on his memorial that he was still living in the area and was nearly 80 years old in 1870.
This is not my direct line, but some of Simeon Lavender Wood's descendants came to Lincoln County, North Carolina and lived near, associated with, and are buried near my Vincent Wood family in a Lutheran Church cemetery in Lincoln County, NC. I went to school with members of this family and still have close friends who are descended from Simeon Lavender Wood. This is why I became interested in the family many,many years ago. Through the years when I was in North Georgia working on my Wehunt family, I would always try to work a little on Simeon Valentine's family.
I do, however, think that I vaguely remember seeing a reference once to his place of burial in a North Georgia Historical Journal and/or a Lumpkin County, Georgia History. I will see if I can locate this reference. Also, is there a possibility there were WPA cemetery surveys done in the 1930s. I know they were working in North Georgia, but I gave my copy of the records they compiled (mainly history of the area, and not so much cemeteries) away several years ago to a someone in Georgia. Perhaps William's tombstone was still there and readable in the 1930s. It would be great if there had been a Wood Family Bible with the dates!!!
Sorry that I can't be of more help.

Hi Richard
You took a photo marker for Mr McKenzie Memorial # 38794058. Do you know what cemetery that is in?

RE: Peter Martin Scott::
I agree, the death date is questionable. I wish we knew where the person got the exact dates that he put on the memorial. He has exact dates for birth and death. I think he has now passed away.

Peter Martin Scott::
Richard, what makes you say that Peter Scott did not die around 1870? I'm told that he was not listed on the 1880 census, but that his wife and children were. Peter and Jane Williams Scott were my great, great grandparents. I noticed that you wrote that they were your 4th great grandparents. So, that makes us distant cousins.

I saw you left a little message with your token, re: his wife. I have been working on the Daniel family, and I would like to know if he was born in Mecklenburg VA, and his parents were Samuel Daniel and Martha Short? I am hoping I have found the right person, any info will help. thanks!

I tried to clean up the B&W photo and take the marks and folds out. I don't have a good program for this anymore, but I managed to make it look better. You can remove it if you're not happy with it. Ron

Hi Richard,
Could you add his photo marker on his wife's memorial also. She just passed away and I have her link on his page. (Shirley Arnett)
Thanks so much

RE: Beam grave
You keep on managing the Beam's page. I'll send you the info and the pics we took this weekend when we were there. Have pics of R.C.(Romulus) and Susan Malone Fortune also; my daughter was able to make out the inscriptions.

Forgot to mention, please forgive typos, etc. - not the best sign for a professional writer, but I'm having some medical treatment that's really playing heck with my vision!

Your father
Hi Richard,
Gosh, I remembered your dad's name right off, and then I checked his page - yep, I remember reading about him! =) I couldn't hope but see some similarities in the stories of him and my own dad's, because when Dad was dying, he'd say, "Well, I'll be going back to Chicago," and I'd say, "I'll make sure you've got a few bucks for the track when you go, Dad." Not quite the same circumstances, I know, but your tribute just struck a note with me - and the photograph is absolutely astonishing. I get more mail for my dad, to this day, than for me. because of his photos in my work (I write) - even on this site, people will message, "Oh, he looks like he was a handful!" ha! Anyhow, I'm not online as much as I'd like right now because of health issues, but by this weekend, I'll be checking in on my people, as I say - I'll look thru your page, a bit more. If you don't mind, I added your dad to my virtual cemetery that's titled "Fascinating Stories"...he deserves more visitors than he is getting, and so maybe I can send a few his way. Best to you and yours/RCP and Gannon Blue

Hey, I went to Pleasant Hill cemetery today with my husband looking for 5 markers for find-a-grave. I noticed that someone had reported a problem with the one you requeste a photo of.
We have found is not hardly readable and is broken, the way we found it was by his wife's monument next to it. I would like to email the photos to you so you can make the determination and post it....send me a good email address...

RE: Add a Relationship link?
No problem! Would you like me to transfer A.J. Strickland to you? None of my relatives or ancestors are interred here in GA, so the memorials and photos I do in GA are up for grabs for whoever wants them. Pam
