I brake for Headstones!|
Genealogy and family is the history of ourselves. I am truly amazed why and how I made it on this earth, at this moment in time, after uncovering the hardships of my ancestors, especially during the War for Southern Independence. I enjoy stories and pictures from the past, and passing them along to others, through e-mail and social media.
If I can help others uncover clues to their past, I will feel blessed by the Lord in many way. So please don't be afraid to ask for help.
THE STORY TELLERS - by unknown
We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but,instead, breathing life into all those who have gone before.
We are the storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one.
We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story.
"Those we love don't go away...They walk beside us every day...Unseen, unheard, but always near...Still loved, still missed and very dear."

|John||William H. Lyon|
I have some clarification on the stone at Rock Springs on William H Lyon and also the marker in the Lyon plot in Arab. My wife's cousin in Arab placed them there several years ago before she died. Neither of them are actual grave stones. Also we found quite a bit of information on Sterling Lyon. He was not in the Civil War having died in 1836/37 in Social Circle, GA. We would like to share data on the Lyon family.

I had not noticed that anyone put a memorial on Findagrave for Sarah E Estes. Maybe she is buried there. There are only a few graves at Enon and half of them are not marked. I didn't know there was any death record of her on ancestry, will look it up. The last record I saw of her, she was living with George, do you think he was living in Bibb Co. when she passed away? George has another great grandson, William Estes, living close to me in Hamilton. I had no idea he had any family here. William connected with me on Findagrave and now we are Facebook friends. I found Estes graves recently in Hamilton, going to check them out when I have time to see if they are family. It was you who sent the pictures to me wasn't it?

Do you have any idea where George Marion's mother is buried? I can't find any record of her death. The last records on her that I have seen were when she applied for widow's pension and she was living with George at the time. I know where his dad is buried; about 25 miles from where I live.
|Rose Chambers Carpenter||RE: Estes|
I am the great-granddaughter of George's brother John Henry. How do I find your ancestry tree and I'll see If I have any you don't have.
