Sailers Cemetery
I tried to send an email but it kept being kicked back. Computers!!!, gotta love them. So I'm sending via Find A Grave.
I did not originate this Sailers Cemetery off of B. Wilson Rd. I think Jackie Lowery did, Find A Grave# 47089151. I'm sure she would be glad to add your directions. Be sure to include your Find A Grave# on correspondence w/ her. I would be glad to include your directions if I had control over cemetery. I do control the other Sailers Cemetery in Jackson county that is located south of Commerce if you need anything added to it.

RE: Day photo request
I found her, Mark! Donna Parrish's book and John Salter's book (came out in 2011) are my go-to resources. I will upload the photos soon... let me know if you'd like the full resolution copies sent to your e-mail. Happy New Year!

Photo Requests
Hello Mark,

I went to Green Lawn Cemetery today to take the pictures you requested. Before I post the one for Sammy, I wanted to make sure I found the one you're looking for. You asked for a picture of the marker for Sammy W. Burks. I found the marker for Sammy B. Burks who was married to Betty Burks. They are buried next to Curt, Mary and Billy. Sammy B. was born in 1949 and died in 1981. If this is correct, I will post the pic for you.

Hi Mark,

I'm sorry but I didn't get to the genealogy society library while in Cumming. They are very knowledgeable there and they might be able to help you if you call them. They're website is:

I also had another thought : check out Don Shadburn's books at the library. Don knows everything about Forsyth County! His first book was on the Pioneers of Forsyth. His web site is here:

Don't know if this will help since you have already searched civil war records, but I did a Google search and found both a James M. and a James N. on the Civil War pages at:

James M. (Monroe) married Mary Wallis
James N. married Elizabeth Castleberry

There is a picture of both of their headstones there.

Rice headstones at Blacks Creek

I visited the Blacks Creek Baptist Church Cemetery sometime in March 2010 and uploaded several headstone photos on March 23 & 24, 2010 including headstone photos for:

George Harrison Barnett
Henrietta G. Barnett
Sydney Josephine Barnett
William B. Barnett
D. Hardeman Bone
Hattie I. Bone
Minnie L. Bone
William M. Bone
Bennett W. Brown
Susan A Swindle Brown
Betty Lou Calloway
Charles Calloway, Jr.
Susie Calloway
John T. Culbertson
Mandy Dove
Beanigbra Perry Freeman
Albert Lord
Middleton G. Lord
Nathaniel S. Lord
Sallie Malcomb Lord
Richard R. Minish
Charlie W. Perry
M. V. Haggard Perry
Parthena C. Perry
J. D. Rice
Lucy Lord Rice
Fradie Sorrow
A Elizabeth Perry Swindle
Soloman M. Swindle
Ellie S. Swindle
W. B. J. Swindle
J. W. Thomas
Mary Jane Winters

and also added a general cemetery photo which was accepted for the site. Please note these are all located on the Blacks Creek Baptist Church Cemetery site located in Madison County, Georgia (not Jackson County, GA). This site has 362 headstone listings.

The website for the church ( states: "We are actually located in Madison County . . . "

The photos of the Rice headstones were taken by me the same day I took all the other photos at Blacks Creek and were posted 2 years before you posted what looks like these same photos on your memorials. I have no idea how this could have happened. I'm happy that Ed Saye has posted much better photos than the ones I took in 2010 - his are a wonderful addition to the memorials.

I think more people might find the listings at the site in the correct county and would suggest that the 9 listings on the Jackson County site be merged into the 362 on the Madison County site.

I am transferring the two Rice memorials as you requested.

Thanks for your contributions to Find a Grave.

RE: James Chatham
Hi James, we're in the middle of moving and other family changes, and I really don't remember if I answered this or not. I am at my sister-in-laws house in Cumming for a couple of days and I'm going to try and get up to the Forsyth Co. Genealogy library and I'll see if I can find out anything for you. I really don't know anything about the Chatham family as I'm mostly looking for my husband's family which are the Castleberrys. Sorry I can't be more help.

RE: James N. Chatham
Hi Mark,

The Castleberrys are my husband's family. Eliza Ann was my husband's 3rd great-great aunt. Her brother David Castleberry, was his 3rd great-grandfather. I would be more than happy to transfer both James' and Eliza's records to you, if you'd like, so that you can link the family with the other family information that I probably don't have. I don't really know anything about James Chatham and Eliza Ann Castleberry except what I found on the tomb stones and on Betty Castleberry's website at:

She states:
"Eliza Ann CASTLEBERRY was born Oct.1830 in Hall County GA., and died about 1907 in Forsyth County GA. She married James CHATHAM Oct.5, / 1850 in Forsyth County Georgia. He was born ABT 1830 in Georgia, and died March.12, / 1865 in the Civil War. She married J.A. WHITTIMORE After 1865 in Forsyth County Georgia."

My husband has a lot of family in Forsyth County so we get back to visit quite a bit, so when I'm there I like to go out and find the ancestor's graves.

Let me know what you'd like to do.

Apologies for such a late reply. I'll look into your requests later today, most of the memorials I manage are my own relatives.

Mark, I see you took pictures at this cemetery in Jackson Co. Georgia. Is there anyway you can tell me where it is? I can't seem to find an address for it.

RE: Memorial# 95383690 Eli T Barrett
Hi There Mark, Eli is interred in a Barrett Family Plot. He is interred next to Mary L. Barrett and on the other side of Mary is Harrett Barrett. It seems unlikely (but not impossible) that Mary would have been his spouse due to the age difference. Hmmm... let me do a little investigating to see if I can figure out if Eli was married. :) Cool about the Cokers!

RE: Lewis Day
Yes, I'm related and his father was William Day b. VA, fought in the Rev. War, and died Pendleton Dist. SC. Don't know where he's buried in SC or I'd have put up a findagrave memorial. William received a Rev. War pension.

I'd be happy to share info if you are interested.

RE: Dunson Family
Mark, my email is hank_a1 [{a.t.}] y.a*h..o-0. I did the last word like that to keep spam bots from noticing it. It actually contains no symbols.

That would be awesome if you could check on that Dunson folder.

I've poested pretty much everything on findagrave & in a thread on GenForum, but I've updated more on findagrave. :)

RE: Dunson Family
No problem at all. It's a working out process alot of times, lord knows I've posted & updated & re-posted different details as they come in. The Dunson's have been a tricky one to figure out for sure. A piece here, a piece there.

There is supposedly a folder of Dunson papers in the library in Commerce. I would love to get over there & get copies of it sometime too.

I checked the library website and he is in Section 1 Lot 221.I don't see anyone with the same last name near him. Call the cemetery and they are good at pulling up the burial paperwork to give you additional names for that lot.

Hi Mark,
I think I entered this grave information from the Union City Public library files. Although I was raised in Union City I no longer live in that area. You may have luck posting on the site for a local person to snap a picture. - Tx
