A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS WHO SO POLITELY PUT UP WITH ALL MY ADDITIONAL INFO REQUESTS!|
I live just blocks from Greenwood Cemetery, Orlando, Orange County, FL. It's beautiful, and I'd be happy to take a photo if one is needed. I LOVE going to the cemetery!
I have been actively photographing and documenting the older sections of Greenwood. I am currently going through all their records to make sure we get everyone on findagrave.
I'll gladly transfer management of memorials upon request, no matter what your relation (unless they are my relatives - but I will transfer a relative to a direct descendant if I am not one). I create every memorial with the hope that their family will find them. Every transfer request I receive makes me know its worth it.
Please let me know if you find any errors or I've duplicated a memorial, I'll fix it! It's so important to have dates correct and names properly spelled - but we all make mistakes, and sometimes the markers are very difficult to read.
Feel free to use my photos (with credit to me - Merf works) for your personal genealogical project. My photos are of public places, and of no artistic (I can guarantee that!) merit. I don't believe I "own" a simple snapshot of someone else's grave marker. I volunteer here to SHARE and to make sure memorials are as accurate as possible. HOWEVER, photos of people - such as my relatives that I have posted...I do require permission prior to use or visible credit to me and that they came from findagrave.
My mother and I are researching our family who settled in Lee, Phillips and Monroe County, Arkansas.
In particular, we are desperately searching for parents and siblings of Thomas Trotter Bonner, who settled in Spring Creek, AR. He married Elizabeth Shackelford Bonner in 1834 in Marengo Co., AL.
Assisting my mom and the Annie H. Darracott UDC Chapter out of Lakeland, Polk Co, FL in the documentation of Confederate Veterans.
Completing FAG entries for Greenwood Cemetery using various sources including cemetery records and undertaker records. I'm only concentrating on the lettered, older sections.
Family surnames: Allen, Allred, Bonner, Coble, Estes, Gaines, Garrison, Gearhart, Gower, Hale, Harris, Higginbotham, McGee, Mauney/Mooney, Ottertail, Raymer, Redditt, Waldron, Walker, Whitfield

|Fred H. Boska||Your note regarding George Flautt|
Thanks for your interest. I am unaware of a 1st wife but anything is possible (I discovered three
sisters none of the rest of them ever mentioned). There are a clan of Flautts in the northeast area (MS.& MD.)related distantly to Georges clan in OH.
Have a birth record for George and a marriage cert.
to Billie Odom in OH. Several of his clan moved to
FL Problem is all of them are gone now, records are
scarce. I will research this. Thanks. FHB
|Wyndy South||James P & Mary South|
Thank you so much for transferring these two memorials to me. I am so proud to take care of them. And even happier that I can take care of them. Thanks for all your hard work on your memorials. I appreciate your kindness and willingness to transfer these. So much. Wyndy South
|Melody||RE: James D Fry 25621989|
It does. I was unaware of Lottie until I found his death. In 1900 he is married to a Lilly. I found a J D Frye marrying Lillie Brown. But I can't find anything else on her. They are together on the 1900 Census for Cobb County, GA. According to the census she was born about 1875. So I think from what you are telling me, they are two separate people. Thanks again for the info.

I noticed you had attached his funeral record to his memorial. Am I correct in assuming he does not have a marker? I am just trying to fill in holes in some of my research. Do you know the whereabouts of his wife by chance?

I added the photo that shows the tree is no longer there. I really think you should leave yours as well, because it shows how it used to be and is a part of it's history. There's still two spaces if anyone wants to add additional photos anyway. It looked much nicer with the tree there, for sure.. :(
|Jennifer Taylor Nichols||Norman transfers|
I really appreciate those transfers. I'm working on a project to link all of my NORMAN'S in Florida who come off of my great great great G/PA Artaxerxes Norman. He's part of the Norman's of Midway and left for FL in 1861 to join his children who were already here. Big family. I thank you for placing their grave photos on Find A Grave and for all you do to honor our loved ones! Jen
|Tammy Rasel Ogram||RE: Thank you!!|
Yes that would be great thank you!
|Tammy Rasel Ogram||Thank you!!|
Thank you for posting Frank Willard Bolton's (118105658) burial information. I have been looking for my uncle for years and was shocked to find out he's been buried in the same city I've grown up in! Thank you so very much!!
|Sandra Adams||RE: Baby Adams|
