Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related.|
I volunteer at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, and am working on photo-documenting the whole cemetery. At this point, I prefer not to transfer memorials for this cemetery (other than mandatory transfers, of course) because my research is ongoing. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.
NOTE: Obituaries are a wonderful source of information, but findagrave has rules about how they may be used. You can always glean facts from them for the bio. If they are out of copyright, or if you hold the copyright, you can transcribe them. Regardless of who has the copyright, you are not supposed to post them as a photograph - regardless of whether you scanned it, took a screen shot, or downloaded it from another website. Please feel free to send me obit text via the edit function, and I will use the info to add to the bio. Obits posted as photos will be removed, and it just ends up wasting your time.

Find A Grave Memorial# 132114471
Thanks for getting back to me so soon. Thomas B. Boggus was a Justice of the Peace for the 1234th District G.M. at the time of his death apparently and a city official at various times, so there is every possibility that "Judge" Boggus was indeed Thomas B. Boggus. His age according to his son Thomas B., Jr. would have been 47, close enough to 50, and his father was buried in an unmarked grave in the Oakland Cemetery.
Thomas and Virginia had five children that I am aware of: (#1) Thomas B. Boggus, Jr who is buried in the same cemetery; (#2) Henry (Harry?) W. Boggus who was born ca 1859 per the 1860 and 1870 censuses (not in any census after 1870); (#3) Viola Boggus who died (apparently) sometime after 1904 and before the 1910 census (she was listed in several Atlanta City Directories from 1880 through 1905...boarding with her brother Thomas B. in the 1880s); (#4) James Arthur Boggus who is buried in the Hollywood Cemetery; and (#5) Ernest Hill Boggus who died in DeKalb Co. on June 14, 1943. I don't know where Ernest is buried, unfortunately.
I think Harry may well be Henry as I think the names were used interchangeably on occasion. If he is buried with them he is probably their son; plus the date of death and his age seem to match Henry's (Harry's).

Yes, my info was from old records. I went to the memorial to enter your info and the edit doesn't work. There have been several edits which wouldn't work, lately. If you will re-enter your edit I will try to accept it from the edit page.
Thank you for your work on cemeteries.

Thanks so much for your prompt reply and your hard work volunteering for the cemetery!

I really appreciate all your volunteer time at Oakland Cemetery! My GGGrandather is buried there in Grave 2, Lot 143, Section 1. He has no marker so we have applied to the VA for a marker since he served in the Civil War. Your "find a grave" information says he died in 1883. The cemetery records sent to me by Oakland says 1882. I'm wondering if you can share your source. I don't want to have the wrong info. inscribed! And the VA is asking about the discrepancy.
Thank you so much!

I know what you mean about the burials as have another Nethery relative buried in Virginia. Thanks for the reply.
|J Chaknova||RE: More about Elizabeth Wallace|
Oh it's the wrong person, then. I was thinking that rather than create another memorial, this was the person for whom I was looking. I based it on the fact that this was a close match and the grave is near where Elizabeth Wallace's last Census Record was recorded. In the 1870 Census, I found a person living in the household of Bradford W Willis who was indexed as "Wallan" but (faded image) it's "Wallace." And Elizabeth H Willis married Joseph Wallace (and was Bradford's mother-in-law). Elizabeth's daughter, Martha (a.k.a. Patsy Roberts in the 1860 Census and living with her parents in Georgia after evidently her marriage to James Roberts ended) started out as Martha Wallace, then Martha Roberts, then Martha Willis.

I see - was not aware of that preference. Will accept your input and find a way to let family know. Thanks. Donna #48515329
