Thanks Barbara! Hill Crest cemetery will always remain my favorite! I discovered it while searching for collateral kin. I did locate who I was looking for, but also found so many beautiful, unique and intriguing markers while there! It prompted me to photograph the entire cemetery - the first of many!

I found a record of another marriage:
h/o Bertha Davis - m. 02 Oct 1915
h/o Ida Mae Thomason - m. 10 Dec 1918
h/o Lenora Alline Dodgen - m. 1930-1940
h/o Gladys Greer Russell - m. after 1960
His WWI draft registration card dated 05 Jun 1917 states he was married at the time.

Lenora Dodgen
Barbara you mentioned in the note that you sent that her daughters names were on the headstone. Do you have a picture of her headstone? All pictures have been taken at graves in Masonic and there does not seem to be one for Lenora Dodgen.

RE: Civil War Lyles
Hello Barbara, thanks for your post. It is so interesting how our Lyle family's were intertwined around Chattanooga and didn't know it. I was born and raised on the east side of Missionary Ridge...the battlefields on Lookout Mtn, Missionary Ridge, and Chickamauga were my playgrounds growing up.

Funny how your Lyles were drinkers, so are their Bourbon.

You can contact Find a Grave and they will merge them so the photo won't be lost.

Hello! These folks sure had me confused for awhile! I really don't know what to do about all the different spellings-one husband and wife use different spellings! Roberts Cem and Hornsby Chapel is where I got started on Find a Grave. I think I am related to just about everyone there in some way or another. I have worked on the Roberts and Lemons families on If you would like I can send you an invitation to go there and see my research without charge. Who knows, you may have some info that I need

Memorial #71518661
Hi, Barbara - regarding the memorial for Penelope (MARTIN) BURSON BROWN (Memorial #71518661), you submitted a suggested edit to eliminate the nickname "Penny." I included that because this is the name under which she appears as widowed head of household on the 1870 federal census of Prattsburg District, Talbot County, Georgia (see dwelling #1015/household #1013 on the last page in this sequence, p. 136 (p. 95B, in the stamped system), which to me is a pretty good indicator that she was known by that diminutive. May I ask your reason for wishing to strike it? Thanks! - John

Memorial #17645264 Sarah Jane (WORTHINGTON) BROWN
Hi - thank you for your message about Sarah Jane. Yes, you're right, there is a problem. However, I don't think it is that Missouri Frances BROWN is linked to the wrong mother. This is because there were not two Sarah Jane (WORHTINGTON) BROWNs. I believe the problem is that the original memorial (posted by Susan Deloach Uribe, Contributor #46629057) has dates that cannot be correct. Because of this, another pair of Contributors (the Padgetts) photographed the grave monument showing the correct dates and created a memorial for her, which is a duplicate but has the correct information. I am working to get this rectified (that is, to have the original memorial corrected, the photo of the grave monument moved, and the duplicate deleted), but it will probably take some time. I will let you know when it's been cleared up or if I learn anything different. Thanks so much for pointing this out! - John
I'm sorry, but I believe someone has confused two Sarah Jane Worthington Browns. The one Missouri Frances Brown is linked to is not her mother. Her mother was Sarah Jane Brown #116462927. After her mother's death 1887 her father John Baswell Brown married Penelope Martin Burson September 30, 1887 in Upson County. She was the widow of William H Burson who died 1865 during the Civil War. John B and Penelope Brown are on the 1900 Upson County census with his daughter Missouri F Brown.

Fannie Carter
Hi Barbara,

I tried sending you an email, but it bounced back. I have removed the Russell Gilbert Batson link from the Fannie Terrell Carter that is in Kaufman cemetery. I know exactly how you feel about people not finding the documentation! That is one of my pet peeves too. I am confused however. Is the Fannie in Kaufman your Fannie? I am not related and would be glad to transfer the Carter memorials to you if you'd like. Also, I thought it was a small world - I have ancestors from Cedartown, Polk, Georgia too. Surnames: Allin and Campbell. Plus I have Lawson, that were from Claiborne County, Tennessee.

I lived in Macon in the early 80s but spent many weekends one year in Rome. Long story but I have some fond memories of that area. Greg Allman also sang about Rome in one song....Fred

Charlie W. Parks
Barbara, I would like to kept the date of birth as the memorial has it. Sometimes the death certificates can have the wrong information. I think that most census information lean toward the year of birth that is on the memorial page.

Would you be able to tell me how you came up the middle name Berthal for William B. Parks, Charlie's father?

Thank you for all the help you have given me.
