|Evening Blues||RE: Cemetery cleanup Fundraiser|
It was nice to meet you, too.
The names I research in Bartow include Aberanathy, Knight, Howell, Young, and Moss. Most of these lived around the Macedonia area along the Cherokee County line.
I haven't had a chance to start looking through the issues yet but hopefully I will be able to this week.

I made a note on the bio section about her being a Juarez but I think I'll leave the listing the way it is. My mother did the same thing with her mother. She had her stone engraved with my grandmother's maiden name. I'm sure the family had their reasons and I wouldn't want to upset them. It's difficult to be sensitive to everyone in cases like this--especially when you don't really know the parties concerned.
Thanks for the update.

|Michael Smith||RE: Doris Fowler|
I got your message today. I know Cassville Cemetery pretty good. When I did my apprenticeship as part of becoming a licensed funeral director in GA at a local funeral home in Cartersville GA in the mid to late 90's we buried quit a few in the Cassville Cemetery. I know that there are at least seven Fowler's buried in the Cassville Cemetery.
And they are as far as I know are related to my father-in-law. I know for sure that Alton Fowler is one of those seven. He's my father-in-law's baby brother. His b. 1920 - d. 1923 and I don't have any idea where in the cemetery he is buried or the other six Fowler's are as well. I know they have memorials on Find A Grave but no photos of their markers. I will get their names and memorial # and get them to you so you can post photos of their markers if you have one.
If you have a photo already of his marker would you please post it on his memorial. His memorial # is 66941427. The last time I looked at the Fowler's was when you first contacted me.
I'm working on documenting an old black church cemetery. The church moved a long time ago about 5 miles down the road from the cemetery. The cemetery sits about a 100 yards off the road in a wooded area and covers about an area and has not used the cemetery since about 1962 and is in very poor condition. It has between 75 and a 100 graves. Grown up, markers knocked down, broken etc. you know the drill. Right now I'm surveying and flagging graves and marker. The church is paying me to do this and I will post it on Find A Grave, give the church a copy and a copy to the Cobb County Cemetery Project for their records.
Lets be sure to keep in touch and If I can help just let me know and I'll come up to Cassville Cemtery to help.

|Michael Smith||RE: Doris Fowler|
Hi Greg. I getting back to you sooner than I thought I would. Doris's sister was Catherine Chapman, She also had a couple of brothers and their names were Erwin and Clyde. (Clyde was not a Jr.) and her parent were Authur and Julia Law Roderson. Also their name was spelt without the "t". Spelling it Roberson. I found my paperwork and my mother in law called her sister in law who is the last living Fowler born in the mid 20's that would know and they together verified all the information you and I share. You know where Doris Mae Fowler (Roberson) is buried. I gave you that information earlier. I will do some looking for Authur, Julia, Erwin and Clyde's burial locations and see what I come up with. Also how do you fit into this mix of the Fowlers, Roberson's and Chapman's? I told you that the Fowlers were my in laws. They are a odd bunch of people and don't like people asking questions if you know what I mean. I have been a member of the Fowler family for 25 years and still have not met them all. Regards, Michael Smith

|Michael Smith||RE: Doris Fowler|
Hi Greg. I gave you some bad numbers. There're only 7 Fowlers buried at Raccoon Creek not 10 or 15. As far as Doris's mom and dad is concerned, I have that information somewhere and I have not had time to post it yet. I will try to locate it in the next day or two and post it and get it to you. If my memory is correct the names you have are the right ones. But let me check and verify them first. Okay? Sorry for the wrong numbers. Regards, Michael Smith

Hi Greg. The Fowler family from Bartow County is my in-laws. Doris's full name Doris Mae ROBERTSON (with a "T") Fowler. b. 21 May 1921 d. 9 December 1982. and is buried at Raccoon Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. There's about 10 or 15 Fowlers buried there and they are all buried next to each other. I posted them all on findagrave late last year or earlier this year. Don't remember which. Just let me know if I can be anymore help. Regards, Michael Smith.

Thanks. Certainly a typo. Wow! That is a huge cemetery. It appears you are doing an excellent job with your work. I know it will be well appreciated. Thanks for your keen eye. Good luck. If you need help with your project, I live far away but love that place just the same and have family nearby. Let me know and I'd certainly try to assist.

|Lebow-Harris||RE: Hilva Gaines @ Cassville Cemetery Bartow County GA|
Cassville Cemetery is a fairly small and rural. It is nestled in amongst the trees, and there are several broken markers. Unfortunately, I don't remember the exact location...I do remember the day was cold and windy. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance as to the location.

|William Wallace Tabbot||RE: Sarah Hance|
Thanks for the photo of Sara Word Hance's grave marker. That may be all I need unless there is any way to get a closer shot of the inscription. Could you make out the inscription and, if so, what did it say?
Sarah Word Hance is my 3rd great grandmother. I am curious, since she lived her whole life in Laurens, SC why she is not buried next to her husband, William Hance (my 3rd great grandfather), in the Laurens (SC) City Cemetery? Also buried there is her daughter Eugenia Hance Crews (my 2nd great grandmother) and her 3 Confederate soldier sons, Col. James Washington Hance (KIA-Battle of Gettysburg), Capt. William Word Hance (KIA-Battle of Fredericksburg), Sgt. Theodore Stanley Hance (KIA-Battle of Chickamauga). If they could return their remains to Laurens, SC from the battlefields, you would think that they could have sent her remains home to Laurens, SC from Georgia. I'm not even sure why she would have been in Georgia.
Do you see any other family names buried near her? Anyone with the surnames... Hance... Word... or Lattimer?
If you do see any of those surnames buried near her, I would love to know who they are and possibly get photos of their graves as well...

|Syble Cline Glasscock||75538567- Ebert Newton-Cassville|
I can't read the dates on the tombstone, but this is likely the son of Martha S. Newton, Memorial 75538568. Her husband's name was Ebert Sevier Newton. My records only show these children: William Dallas b-1868; Joseph Manson abt 1870; Nancy abt 1871; Jesse Lee Newton b. 1881; and Neely Newton born abt 1884, but this Ebert was like a Jr.
Thanks for adding the photo and I would also like permision to copy it.
