Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family research for a little over 35 years now. I originally started working mainly on my LOCKLIN family. Over the years I have expanded my work on various family lines. Currently I am focusing on the following:

My Paternal Lines:
LOCKLIN, FOKES, McLENNAN, FULCHER, MERCER, ZACHRY, GUTHRIE, BURKE, SMITH, LARGE, PAGE and many others connected to these surnames.

My Maternal Lines:

My Sons' (Trent & Terry) Paternal Lines:

My Granddaughter's (Kayrinn) Maternal Lines:

My Grandson's (Colby) Maternal Lines:

My Very Significant Other's (JR) Lines:

If you are related to any of these lines, please contact me.
I have created a LOCKLIN group page on Facebook titled Descendants of Samuel Locklin (1744-????). If you are a descendant of Samuel Locklin, please contact me on Facebook so I can add you to the group page. Currently, we have 329 descendants in the group. We are sharing photos, stories and other information on the group page. It is a "private" group which is by invitation only and only those in the group can read the posts and information and view the photos added there.
My profile name on Facebook is:
Sarah Locklin Taylor.

If you find errors or duplicate/multiple entries, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you have additional information you would like added to one the entries, I'll be most happy to add the information for you, or if the memorial is of one of your family members, I would be pleased to transfer it to your FindAGrave membership ID.

I have had many family members transferred to my membership profile and have worked to add family information to all of them. Be assured that I would never ask to have a memorial transferred to my membership for the sake of numbers. That is not my goal. I have numerous Virtual Cemeteries that are set up to hold members of the various direct lines/branches of my family tree.

I would like to thank all of the kind contributors who have been so nice to create them in the first place and then graciously allowing me to have them transferred. I would also like to thank all of the kind volunteer photographers and those that photograph the cemeteries as a hobby. You are doing a great service to preserve these cemeteries through digital imaging and are helping to preserve the memory of those that have gone before us.

I can't tell you how many additional family members of mine have been found by Bud and his lucky charm, Vicky Sue. He has been most generous with his time in photographing headstones throughout a 4 county area of GA for me.
~♥~ Thank you, Bud and Vicky Sue! ~♥~

Another Special Thanks to Kerin McAfee for borrowing her Dad's 1948 Thorndale High School Year Book to scan the Senior picture of my Mom, Henrietta Marie Benad.
~♥~ Thank you, Kerin! ~♥~

Very special thanks goes to Juel and Blessings* Family Ties for sponsoring my Dad and Mom's memorials. Also, special thanks to Gods Special Angel for sponsoring my 1st Childhood Friend's memorial.
~♥~ Thank you, Juel, Carolina Angel and Gods Special Angel! ~♥~
Please visit Kenneth Edward Lipke [Juel's Dad], Maude Lola Gillespie Gaydon [Carolina Angel's Grandmother] and Gods Special Angel's Parents and leave a flower or token of respect.

Last but not least, I would like to thank the creator of FindAGrave, Jim Tipton, and his wonderful staff for one of the best Genealogical sites available online. You have truly created a great source and network for genealogists to search, find and contribute information.
My personal request to you....PLEASE, if you have a transfer request use the "Suggest a correction" and include your FindAGrave Contributor #, so that I can simply click on the link and transfer it to you. This process will automatically generate an email to you stating that the memorial has been transferred. It is also appreciated if you will include your relationship to the person you are requesting be transferred. I will not transfer a memorial simply by your "telling" me to transfer the memorial to you. I don't follow the suggested transfer guidelines, but it is nice to know what relation, if any, that you have to the memorial you are requesting. I have, in some cases, transferred High School Classmates, surrogate mothers, etc. Please include your relationship/reason for requesting the transfer.

Also, I would greatly appreciate it if you would NOT leave a correction or request to add additional information to memorials on the message board below - it makes it much more difficult to perform these tasks, especially on multiple requests listed in one message. While this may be easier for you - it is not as easy for me.

If you send an email to me with NO SUBJECT, it will be deemed as SPAM and deleted.

I hope you understand.
Thank you!!
God Bless All

Hello, Sarah!
While researching my Dad's shipmates, I found your posting. I just wanted to let you know our father's served together on the USS APc-50. As with your Dad, my Dad (William Ely) began serving when the ship was commissioned June 9, 1943 and served until they left the ship in August, 1945. I see your Dad was also a Mason--serving as Master in 1975.
If he were still here, I'm sure he'd have some great stories to tell about your Dad. He always referred to the crew of the APc50 as McHale's Navy, so I think they were able to have some fun during a very stressful time.

John & William Nichols
Sarah, are you related to these two Nichols men, John #31409104 and William #31409129? If not, would you please consider transferring them to me. As I mentioned before they are distant relatives of mine. I am trying to connect them with their family. I have 3 of the children connected to their mother and am trying to find two others. There are 7 children, I have found 5 of them. I know you don't have to do this, but I would be grateful to you if you did.

Tasso Burns Linn
Sarah, would you consider transferring the memorial for Tasso Burns Linn #31406921 to me? He was a brother to my great-grandmother and I manage his parents' and siblings' memorials. Also would you transfer the rest of the Linn memorials to me that are buried in the same cemetery as Tasso Linn? My member # is 47326038. Thank you! --Shirley A.,

Because of eliminating duplicate memorials, your links for Willie Kate Shields Young's parents were lost. Would you please re-link her to John Henry Shields, Memorial #58810596, and Hester Ellen Campbell Shields, Memorial #58810646.

Thank you,

Nichols family
Sarah, This is John Nichols's brother. I really would appreciate it, if you would transfer both of them to me.
Added by Olva on Mar 17, 2015 6:15 PM
Sarah, since John Nichols memorial #31409104 is not related to you, he is a distant cousin of mine. Would you consider transferring his memorial to me. I know you don't have to do this, but I am finding and connecting his family and other family members with the help of FindAGrave friends.
Thank you,
