Bio and Links
Bio Photo My home is Alabama, always will be.

Researching the following Surnames:
Amberson, Ayers, Brockman. Decker, Ganey, Gober, Gilley, Gazaway/Gassaway, Gunnels, Hardwick/ Hartwick, McMillen, Pendergrass, Rogers, Randolph, Stewart, Turner, Westbrook, Wortham.
I grew up with Decoration Day (2nd Sunday in May) going to all the cemeteries were the family members were and the last one would be Dad's grave in Oneonta, Alabama. Visiting the family plots and placing roses on all the graves. Mom would work on the flowers for days. Afterwards, we would go to "Little Joe's" restaurant and have dinner, they served "Family Style". For those in other areas of the country this is like sitting down at grandma's house with bowls of food set on the table and everyone shares. Some of my most wonderful memories are setting around talking to the family, where they lived, what was their name, and stories. I miss Decoration Day, but FAG helps to fill that place in my heart.

My love is Genealogy and that is why I do FAG.

FAG Guidelines for Transfers are: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer.

Please if you are related email me;

FAG Guidelines: Bulk surname requests should not be made and will not be honored.

I will NOT transfer all members of a family; requesting to send all aunts, uncles, cousin, etc....

Virtual Cemeteries

A Find A Grave Virtual Cemetery is essentially a collection of names from the Find A Grave database. As a Find A Grave contributor, you can build Virtual Cemeteries to group listings in whatever way you would like. For example, you might make a 'Smith Family Virtual Cemetery' where you would place all of the members of your Smith family tree. Other examples: 'My Favorite Actors' or 'Memorials I Visit Often'. A VIRTUAL CEMETERY HAS NO RELATION TO A REAL CEMETERY! People listed in your VIRTUAL cemeteries can be buried in many different REAL cemeteries. You can add any name in the Find A Grave database to the Virtual Cemeteries you create and you can choose to make your Virtual Cemeteries visible to the visitors of your Find A Grave Contributor Profile page.

Please submit any additions or corrections to me under "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION" on the memorial site. I will be happy to add any information and relationship links for you, please furnish appropriate link numbers.

If you have something that needs attention in a timely manner please email me.

RE: Edwin Gober
Hi Amby

Thanks for your reply. The virtual cemetery of the 16th Georgia is a work in progress, as are the Find A Gave memorials I have created for those whose burial is uncertain.

So far, I have located and/or created and linked memorials for over 750 of the men who served in the 16th GVI. Of those, only 61 are ones I have created for men who did not already have one. Only 9 of the created ones remain with unknown burial locations. Your Edwin F Gober is one of the 9. :-(

The 16th GVI was organized in the summer of 1861 of men from Columbia, Elbert, Gwinnett, Habersham, Hart, Jackson, Madison, and Walton (although there were members from other counties). The Regiment was entrained at Athens and travelled by "the cars" to Virginia, with some Companies arriving in Richmond as early as July 17/18, 1861. They were assigned to Howell Cobb's Brigade and encamped at the old Fairgrounds in Richmond (which they nicknamed Camp Cobb) until October 20, 1861 when they marched off for Yorktown.

Yes I am happy to add the middle name Fletcher. Would you like a transfer? I am not related.

RE: Clarrisa Embry Gober
Glad to help. Do you have any info on Edwin F Gober? I created a memorial for him Find A Grave Memorial# 137212324 and linked him to his brother Newton Napoleon Gober M.D. I do not currently know his burial location. Please take a look at his memorial and let me know if you have any corrections or additional information. Thanks.

RE: Elizabeth
Elizabeth Bishop - memorial number is Find A Grave Memorial# 7221192.

Her husband is Find A Grave Memorial# 7221195 (J J Bishop). J J Bishop's first wife is listed is his spouse which is correct but then after her passing he married Elizabeth T. McKee. Can you link J J Bishop as her husband as well as the individual you currently have who is J J Bishop's first wife and mother of most of his children?

Elizabeth's father is Martin Capel McKee, Find A Grave Memorial# 42073729

Elizabeth's mother is Find A Grave Memorial# 42073732

Once you link her to her parents she will be 'reunited' with her family on findagrave. I think I have all of her siblings linked into her parents now.

Thanks so much.
