Bio and Links
My obsession now is the Confederate Soldiers of Randolph County, Georgia, USA. Some are marked with a government marker, those you know were in the war, then there are those that have a family marker, these you don't know unless found in the MSR. (military service records) There are some buried here that have no marker. These I'm working on to get marked. I've lived here all 72 years & I'm having a great time. If you have a veteran, any war, buried here, I need their names, what war, where buried. I'm Flo Merritt Young of Shellman, Ga., Randolph County.

Memorial #66403793
Hi - I have a question about a memorial for my cousin's second wife that you kindly transferred to me back in February 2013, Memorial #66403793 for Florrie Gertrude B. "Flo" ANTHONY. I am wondering if you remember what the source for the middle name Gertrude was? I can't seem to find it in any record of her (but I also haven't been able to find her on any censuses thus far). I realize it has been a while since you created this memorial, so if you don't remember, it's okay. A question has come up about whether the initial "B." stands for her maiden name (which is presently unknown) or for a given name - and if she is Florrie Gertrude "Flo" then she would have 3 given names with the "B." name, which would be out of the ordinary. I came across a record in my files that she was Florrie B. SAYE, but I don't know if SAYE was her maiden name or if she had been married before she wed my cousin. I don't suppose you know of anyone in your area who would be willing to look up her newspaper death/funeral notice for me? I would be glad to do look-ups in the Columbus newspapers/records in return. Thanks! - John

Elusive Grave of Lewis Griffin Roper

If you ever find anything on the subject I would be forever grateful to know it.

The subject, Lewis Griffin Roper is my GG Grandfather. He died 27 May 1847 from a fractured skull. He was struck by a slave with a hoe. His plantation was north west from Shellman, GA. On land lots 153 and 154.
I don't know if he was buried in a cemetery or on his plantation.

I thought you might be looking around in that area of Randolph County.

Benevolence Baptist Church
I see 2 Benevolence Baptist Church cemeteries listed in Randolph county, both of which you have photographed. I found one on Wards Mill Rd, but I don't find the 2nd. The notes on it say Cuthbert-Trotman Road, but I don't find any such road on any map, can you tell me where that is?

Photo permission
Just wanted to say thanks for the memorials of John Summerford and his wife Nancy Helton in Parrot Cemetery. Not only was it nice to find out where they were buried, but I also didn't know he was CSA. I was wondering if I might have your permission to use the beautiful photos you posted on their memorials in our family tree. I generally keep my tree private, but from time to time I do share with family. I always include credits along with the photo, and also include the memorial number in a separate category so its easier to find for the less experienced members of our family. Thank you so much for your hard work. Our family is very appreciative.

Thank you so much for all the wonderful work you have been doing and for making the connections to other memorials of the Bius family in Randolph Co. These are all my direct ancestors. I greatly appreciate everything that you have done. It helps so much to have connections of family to each other so others will also know the linage. Thank you again.

Look at This

Never heard of any Becks is Randolph Co. You know the CSA soldiers. Was this a newspaper in 1900. Would Karen Pittman know?

About James Joseph Clenney
My name is Brenda Wintersole. I am the Great GrandDaughter of James Joseph Clenney and Elizabeth Clenney.
I noticed on his page that a Louie Verreault said he was a great GrandSon. Would it be possible for you to get us in touch with each other?

I would like to know who his parents and grand parents were.

Thanks for your help.
