Bio and Links
Bio Photo After discovering Find A Grave, I've become hooked. It's so true: "you can't do just one."

If you have any corrections, links or additions, let me know through the "edit" tab which is on the top right of the memorial page. I try to be perfect, but so far....:o(

Please feel free to use any of my cemetery or headstone photos for whatever purpose.
TRANSFERRING Management: To be fair to all, I follow Find-A-Grave's guidelines.
"Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."

Just use the "edit" tab and let me know how you are related and your FAG contributor number.
RESEARCHING: I am looking for parents and/or siblings of Austin Goodwin Broton [aka Broughton, Brotton, Button, Brayton] (1856-1946). He's my great grandfather and a bit of a mystery. His mother may have been a Goodwin, born in Scotland and died in New York about 1870...we think. His father's first name may have been Bernard.
Most importantly...have fun!

RE: a Woodman in Athens, GA
I'm not sure about the cemetery he is in, as there are a few cemeteries named Oconee near Athens. I was leaning towards Oconee Hill b/c many of my kin are there (Dottery/Breedlove/Jackson), he married a Dottery, lived, and died in Athens.

I hope to find more in the Atlanta Constitution about the Woodmen at some point. Seems GA doesn't have that paper digitized on the Galileo site, so it won't be free, only in libraries or by subscription at

a Woodman in Athens, GA
Have you seen anything about a Woodman of the World monument that is supposed to be placed on John Dootson's grave in Oconee Cemetery? Not sure if it is Oconee Hills or not. Haven't found a death cert, just obit in Athens papers but he died 15 Jan 1894. See;query=john%20dootson;brand=athnewspapers-j2k-brand#page/n0/mode/1up.

The Atlanta Constitution did a write-up and his may have been one of the first such memorials. See where it mentions 30 Aug 1894 edition of The Atlanta Constitution.

I agree that 1918 is the birth year. My 1919 was a guess from the 1920 US Census. Thanks for your input and photo.

I know that my father in law Ralph Croy is in twice I did it that way at the request if my mother in law before she passed away. Half of my father in laws ashes is buried in the same grave that my mother in laws grave in Idaho. If you look it says Spiritual Grave

RE: Grave Site Photos - Sacramento
Thanks Phyllis for the "warm fuzzy stars" and Happy New Year to you also. Hope it doesn't fly by as fast as 2015. The older you get it seems the faster the year goes by. Take care. Lin

RE: Ethel Herbert Fears #68106370
I don't know her name but she started a Facebook page called Oroville Riverview Cemetery Clean Up, so if you belong to Facebook you might want to take a look.

We live about 300 miles from Orville and probably won't get back that way any time soon otherwise we could look for his marker. Hopefully a group of locals will adopt the cemetery and try to keep the markers uncovered. It's a real shame.

RE: Paul Austin #67044624

We can't take credit for cleaning the memorial. In 2012 a high school student took on the cemetery as her Senior Project. She, and a few volunteers, cleaned up around a lot of the markers. Luckily we were able to photograph most of the markers before mother nature takes them over again.

The cemetery itself is well maintained but they won't take care of the edges around the markers. There is a sign that states it is the responsibility of family members. Obviously that becomes impossible at some point so a lot of markers are completely covered now with sod.
