Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the spring of 2010, I became interested in finding out more about my father's family. My g-g-g-g grandfather, John P Lyle, settled in Paulding Co, Georgia, sometime before 1840. It is thought that he received land in the 1832 land lottery of the Cherokee lands. I worked on the LYLE family tree and then started looking for the graves of my extended family. I spend the majority of my time looking for graves in Paulding County and the counties that surround Paulding, such as Haralson, Polk, Bartow, Carroll, Douglas, Cobb and Cherokee. I have found this to be a great way to fill in those extra hours I now have in my life as a retired person.
I have to give credit to my brother, Tom 'CC' Lyle, and to my 1st cousin once removed, Dianne Eberhardt, for allowing me to use their genealogy research information in several of my FAG memorials.

RE: Durmela Caroline
Oh, my goodness - I didn't realize that there were two different ladies named Sandy connected with that memorial. Hope you can contact the other one & that she has the correct photo.

I'm trying to work on this lady. Her name looks like Durmeta on the marriage record. I've found very little so far.

RE: Mary Ann
Hi there,
I just got back from the cemetery. The birth year 1848 must be wrong on the marker and it should be 1840. Would it be possible to merge with the memorial created by Ed Elstan # 64665984.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Mary Ann "Polly' Blackmon # 118293393
Hi Sandy,
I am doing some family research on my Adams' ancestry. I noticed that you have a memorial for Mary Ann created in Smyrna UMC. But I show no listing for her at Smyrna UMC in the Carroll County Cemetery survey book. Is it possible that your Mary Ann and Mrs. P.A. Adams # 64665984 are one in the same. William Adams married Polly Ann Folds 7-16-1868 in Carroll County, GA. I believe the birth year for Mrs. P.A. Adams is actually 1840, not 1848. She is buried next to William and his first wife, Millie Hooper Adams. I believe P.A. is for Polly Ann. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. I'll try to visit the cemetery shortly.

Photo Request
Hello, I'm I Find a Grave volunteer who lives near Memorial Cemetery in Skokie. There is some confusion about taking photos at this cemetery, but I have taken a number in the last few years. What I can't do is look up the location for you. If you call the cemetery 847-864-5061 and then post the location in your request, I will attempt to fulfill it. Some folks have reported to me that the cemetery will not give out the location via phone. This is hard to understand if you are a family member. I would prefer to have the location posted rather than sent to me via email. Susanne D

RE: William C Lyle
No problem. I've been saying for years that I wanted to go up and have a look at that cemetery since there are some Civil War soldiers buried there, and you gave me the perfect opportunity. :-)

RE: Alberta Agnes Lyle Hill # 81006603
Your welcome. Oh how I wish you had some relatives for me but unfortunately my family came from Hungary and refused to discussed their families in the "old country". Not to mentioned that: 1-their last names were changed at Ellis Island and 2-it is common as Smith and Jones: and 3-they rarely ever gave their children middle names and the children's names were the same as their's. The way they "distinguished" themselves were by their occupation. Such as Joe the butcher or Joe the son of Joe the butcher. Ugh! I have hit a brick wall with my grand parents so my tree is very small. Thanks for the offer. Michelle
