RE: Love Genealogy
Jo Ann,
I have located your ancestor James William Love in every census 1850 to 1910 and will be glad to send to you the information as to his location in these censuses. Just tell me where to send.

RE: Love Genealogy
I have traced our shared Love family back to James Powell who was born in 1735 and settled in Savannah in 1758. He died in 1768. He and wife Elizabeth had three sons John, James and Walter. We descend from John who was a doctor in Savannah. His son was also James and two of his sons were Henry and John. You descend from John and I descend from Henry. My e-mail is so please send your reply direct. I am compiling a binder about our Love ancestors to include what photos, etc. I can find. Hence, I would like to share with you and include at least 5-6 generations. It is probably going to take a year or so to get everything organized but I am confident you will like the final product. What I have done for other families is provide at my expense a binder to those that share with me plus a a dozen or so CDS for others.

Love Genealogy
Jo Ann, I have been enjoying your work reference the James William Love family. Are you a relative? My research reflects John D. Love was the father of James William Love. John D. Love was the brother of my great, great grandfather Dr. Henry Troup Love.
Does this match what you might know?

Hey JoAnn,

I sent a suggestion Edit to CHANGE the Cemetery for Nancy Causey Frawley (112096750).

Please change TO: Wesley UMC Church Cemetery in Screven County (as per Obituary) instead of Wesleyanna Memorial Methodist Church Cemetery.

My husband and I took pictures of all the Grave Markers in this Cemetery on 5/13/15 and verified that Nancy is indeed buried there. I will post the picture of her Grave Marker after you change to the Correct Cemetery. (we created this as a New Cemetery on 5/13/15 with the directions)

Please email me once you have made the change to Wesley UMC Church Cemetery.

Thank you, Jeannie Mock Irwin (48402560)

Thanks for all the graves you have put on Find A Grave. I have gone through some and connected the parents and spouse. Hopefully some people will find it useful as most of our families are buried in DeLoach and Ephesus. Keep up the good work.

RE: Louise Griffin Ivan Bennett
Thanks for creating my Grandmother's memorial. I have added her parents to Find a grave. I found that you also created a memorial for grandma's sister, Margaret Allen #
114759440. On Aunt Margaret's site there is a child Kenneth, I don't think he belongs with aunt Margaret but maybe to her youngest sister Etha Grace.
I have not been in touch with any of my grandmother's siblings since she died in 1967. She was the oldest of seven.
Thank you for the information on Aunt Margaret's children i did know them slightly and had no idea what had became of them.
I've always lived in upstate New York and not visited Savannah that often . Again thank you all that you done.

Thanks for the transfer of Mary Alice Bradley Ginn Bragg # 70754851. The family also very much appreciates the good work that Linda Lee Dewitt Lewis during her time on Earth. She was a very dedicated, focused person. I did leave flowers for her.

Mary Alice Bradley Ginn Bragg, FAG# 70754851
Mary Alice Bradley Ginn Bragg (Find A Grave# 70754851) is the niece of my wife, Wealthy Bradley Bowen, daughter of Mary Alice's brother, Sampson Retis Bradley (Find A Grave# 80823221). The family, and I, would be very honored if you would transfer management of the Find A Grave Memorial to me. Also, the family wishes to thank you for posting the photos of the headstone monument. In November, one of the children had the copeing and reverse side of the headstone worked and all her children, by her first husband, John Thomas Ginn (Find A Grave# 66544821) were engraved on the reverse side of the headstone. Photos were taken of the completed work, and we have posted these two new photos on the Find A Grave Memorial.

Thank you for all you do. May our good Lord bless you and you work.

Find A Grave Memorial# 115359600
Thank you for posting this information on my mother. As is often the case, however, some of the information is the obituary is incorrect. I am Bonnie Lynn Bailey, the older of Lynn Arden Bailey and Archie Lawton Bailey's two daughters and did not live in Chamblee, but in Atlanta, Georgia.
Our maternal grandparents were Milton Arden and Della Carlyn Bazemore Arden (she never used Della, but was known as Carlyn). The correct spelling of my mother's surviving sister's name is Maudeane Arden Clifton. Their brother Milton "Joe" Arden Jr. died 23 November 2014.

# 115357280 ARCHIE Lawton Bailey was, indeed, Lynn's husband. He was the youngest of five sons born to William CLAUDE Bailey and May Belle Denny Bailey. The eldest, DENNY Aycock Bailey, is buried with his wife, Clara Thorpe Bailey, in the same Bailey family plot.

# 80480281 VERNON (not Bernon) Claude Bailey, buried in the same plot, was the 2nd son of Claude & May Belle Bailey and died (at age 11) of injuries sustained while living at Bethesda Home for Boys. Corrected birth date: 27 Oct 1913

The 3rd son of May Belle and Claude Bailey, Marion Thomas Bailey (1915-1981), is buried in Greenwich Cemetery adjacent to Bonaventure.

# 122243746 Marguerite Denny (b. 10 Nov 1898 in South Carolina; d. 6 Feb 1963 in Savannah, Chatham, GA), was the younger sister of May Belle Denny Bailey. Their parents were John Milton Denny and Sarah "Sallie" Bagley Aycock, both of whom are buried in Johnston, Edgefield, SC.

Kay Hagan was my father. Is there any connection between our family and you or Ms.Lewis? I do not remember such.
My mother, Gertrude Delph Hagan, memorial #88679723, is buried next to him, so please add her to his memorial as his spouse (his first wife).

RE: Beckworths/Kromer
JoAnn, Yes, you can transfer to me. I could not find a memorial for my sister, Dolores Beckworth Kromer or her son, David Howard Kromer, who is buried right beside her at Gravel Hill Cemetery. They do not have headstones. They are in the plot for our parents, Shinar and Hettie Beckworth. Next time I go to Savannah, I plan to purchase them headstones. Thanks again.

RE: Gravel Hill Cemetery
thank you so much for this information. I would like to find out how much the church charges to clean up a site. Last time I was there my husband and I brought garden tools with us, etc. and cut weeds, cleaned as much as possible (from Maryland). but I would hate to think what it looks like now. I might try a trip in the Spring. We have family buried in Bonaventure, Forest Lawn and Laurel Grove that I know of. Just wish my Dad had gotten his plots at one of those. If you find out how much the church charges, would you let me know please. Thanks. I think someone told me a long time ago that someone famous (like a signer of the Declaration of Independence) is buried there, or has a marker there. Is that true?

Thank You JoAnne
for the picture of my parents grave - Shinar and Hettie Beckworth. I live far away and don't visit Savannah very often. It means a lot to be able to see their gravesite. Wish I was closer and could take care of it. Do you happen to know who is in charge of keeping the cementery clean? Is there a day family members go out and clean & pick weeds, etc. Appreciate any information you may have about this. Thanks. again
