RE: Higgins Cemetery, Laurens
Unfortunately the photos show the state of the gravestones. They can hardly be read with the naked eye. With photos, near impossible. These photos were taken Feb. 15, 1997. There is no way to tell the age of this cemetery. When I visited it, one could see that at one time cedar trees encircled the cemetery showing they had been set out by some person, but unfortunately had been cut down a few years prior to my visit. The stumps measured at least 20 inches across. This is very large for a native cedar. There were the following stones in the cemetery:
1. Adult grave with fieldstone
2. Adult grave with fieldstone
3. Adult grave with fieldstone
4. Adult grave with fieldstone
5. Adult grave with fieldstone
6. Adult grave with fieldstone
7. James Higgins, died Jan. 10, 1811
8. E. (B?) Higgins, died Aug. 2, 1833
9. David Higgins, died June 9, 1859, age 72y,4m
10. Lizzie French, died Sept. 29, 1864 age 80y
11. Infant grave with fieldstone
12. Infant grave with fieldstone
13. Haney Higgins, died Dec. 26, 1855 age 71y 17d
14. James B. Higgins, died Dec. 15, 1863, 78y 2m 15d

Gravestones of James B. Higgins and wife Haney are of marble, with clear markings. Gravestones of all the others are relatively thick upright granite with very faint, and almost unreadable markings. All marked graves have footstones. We feel our reading of those faint stones to be correct, but some information, especially dates, could be incorrect as they are very difficult to see even after dusting.

James B. Higgins was a very prominent early member of Warrior Creek Baptist Church, of which I am a long time member.

James M Baxter
I found the tombstone for James M Baxter in the Baxter Cemetery in Murray Co GA. I have a question, Since James M Died in a hospital in 1864 in 1864 and his wife Sara B Notter died in 1850, how is Mary Celina Baxter their child? I'm sure it's an easy enough explanation. Thank you for putting these photos on Find a grave.!! This is my family. James' father, John Baxter is my 2nd Great Grandfather.

Are you related to the McElheneys in Georgia? You submitted a correction for my deceased husband's grandfather and I wanted to verify you source before making the change as Michael is not on the headstone.
Blessings, Patricia

I changed it to two Ns since that is what is on their marker. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

RE: Confederate flag?
You can copy the small replica's into your flower collection also. Download the picture to your computer and then you can add them to your collection.

RE: Confederate flag?
Oops ... Correction regarding how to add it to your collection of "flowers" ....

Just click on the flower, it should open a new page where one of your choices is:
[Add this to my scrapbook]
Just click on that and it will be added!!

Easy enough!

RE: Confederate flag?
I added the flag a long time ago from another contributor who had left it on a memorial. I've forgotten how to do it, but I think you can right click on the flag and add it to your own "flower" collection. Then you can use it anytime you want.


PS - This Political Correctness is a bunch of you know what, if you ask me. I'm so tired of so many people being offended by everything!!!

RE: Rosa Ann Eliz. Kinard Carmichael
All of my Jackson City entries were gotten on line. Once the weather cools down I can go out there and look for you. It may be that she had a memorial made with her husband when he died and because she lived so much longer than he did, that she wanted to be buried somewhere else when she died.

Yes, I know that. I have nothing to do with the addition of the children's links. That was added by some other person and they will have to remove them from that side.

You're welcome. I was surprised also but i do run across this quite often. Maybe they're waiting for the passing of his wife.

RE: Birdie Atkinson Stradley
The cemetery office confirmed to me this morning that she is buried in Section 10 Lot 368 and that the grave is unmarked. I submitted an edit to you with this location. I see that you have her husband in Section 18 Lot 368. I suspect that they have given one of us the wrong section, and that she is buried in the unmarked space next to her husband. You can clear this up easily by calling the office.

I am going to go back and double check. If it's not raining tomorrow, I will go.

RE: Stradleys in Westview Cemetery in Atlanta
It's been awhile and I have been doing a lot of requests. I think that's the one I messed up and thought there were was a Sr. and a Jr. but went back and only saw the one. Sorry.

Stradleys in Westview Cemetery in Atlanta

I found the two William Stradleys. With them was

Bess Stradley Allen 3/13/1910 - 4/16/1969

Would you please make a memorial page for her and send a photo request so I can upload my photo? Thanks

RE: James Albert Wilkins Jr.
This is a most unusual gravestone. I was about to leave the cemetery and looked down and there it was. It has JA Wilkins across the top and no dates. It looks like a flower on the top and right next to the gravestone is a large white peony bush. There were no other Wilkins around it and the gravestone wasn't really in a row. I live just up the road from this cemetery and will happily go back and get a close shot of the gravestone. I tried to send it as the actual size but it wouldn't.

I believe that it is owned by the Pacolet United Methodist Church. I don't think that you have to be associated with that particular church to be buried there or even be a Methodist. Just purchase a lot. I looked at some of that names that had obits attached and noticed they were Presbyterian. My mom is buried in a Methodist cemetery even though she was a Baptist (that's where she wanted to go). I only had to purchase the lot.
Here is a may have to paste it in your browser. On page 10 it tells a little bit about the cemetery

He was suspected of murdering her - I forget where I found all that. You know how it is. I will be flipping through articles and one will catch my attention. I will read that and go to something else, but something in the article will stick in my mind.
