|Bio and Links|
I was born Elizabeth Kate Orr (always gone by Kate) to Webster Thaxton (Web) and Josephine Marie Wilson Orr in Rayle, Georgia. I would say that the majority of my family are from Wilkes and Oglethorpe County, Georgia. I no longer live in Rayle, Georgia, but Roswell, Georgia with my husband, Clay, and our two dogs. The house where I grew up is still in my family and I try to get down there every few months to visits cousins, do research, etc. I started doing genealogy research where my mother left off (she and my father are both deceased). She had researched both her and my father's direct lines fairly far back and she had some information on the siblings of my direct ancestors, but I wanted to learn more so I've been collecting more information on both my direct and indirect ancestors. Who they were, what they did, what they looked like, where they are buried. So most of the cemeteries I have entered into Find A Grave are those I have gone to in search of my ancestors. I'll often take a picture of the gravestone, enter it into my Family Tree Maker and figure out the connection. Which is why when I upload the information to Find A Grave, people may wonder why only pictures of select graves were taken and not all of them, also why everyone buried in the cemetery is not listed. There are times when others are owners of information they submit, I try to only ask for my direct ancestors to be transferred to me, but there are also times when I ask for my aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. to be transferred to me. Many times people enter information into Find A Grave from books, etc. and once they've entered the information they no longer really maintain the record, how could they, they don't even know the person. Even if I've never met the person, I know them from my parents research or from the records they saved, etc. So I really appreciate it when these records get transferred to me.|

Sometimes I feel like an idiot. I dutifully check every memorial I enter just to prevent duplicates and then I find out that someone puts folks in before they die. You do a search on their name and their death date, but Find A Grave won't pick out unknown death dates. Oh well, what's a graver to do.

Thank you for the info on the Evans family from Westover Memorial Park. No need to check Sardis I called Westover. I really appreciate your help!

You are WELCOME! This "find" was especially fun....FIRST time that I have EVER located a headstone in the "historical district" at Roselawn!

You have the wrong photo on his memorial. The Benjamin in the photo died in 1913 and the one in the memorial died in 1963. I have added the correct photo for him. Here is a link to the memorial.

I have no relation to her - but do know that using chalk, shaving cream, wire brushes to clean tombstones or to be able to read them does damage that can't be undone - just for future reference.

Dear, Kate - I was just wondering if you were aware that using Chalk on a tombstone causes current and future damage to it. And that if you are not related to the person that is buried there, or don't have permission, then it is recommended to not touch the tombstone. If you were not aware that it causes damage - then I just wanted to let you know. Here are a couple of websites that you might want to read:
Thank you, Nancy Bedell

No, I am not a descendant Samuel David Fanning. I am a descendant of Hezekiah Fanning who moved from Caswell County, NC to Greene County, GA in 1797.
