Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am semi-retired, again, after having retired once from the Air Force, and have quite a bit more time now to devote to Find-A-Grave network.

I was raised in the Talbot, Marion, Taylor County areas of Georgia.

I plan to busy myself in aiding those requesting photos or other services in my geographic area which will more or less include Newton, Rockdale and Walton counties here in Georgia. These areas are on the eastern side of Atlanta metro.

If I can be of service to anyone, I will do my best to help. Hopefully, in the near future I will have more time to provide.

If I have established a memorial which you wish to be transferred to you to maintain, please do not hesitate to let me know. E-mail me direct if you wish. All photos I have submitted can be considered public domain and reused in the furtherance of ancestral quests.

I have an extensive tree made up of Harts, Hansons, Hays, Cookes, and their lineage into South Carolina. Also a tree made up of Bacles, Parkers, Willis's, Smiths in the Georgia, LA, SC areas.


Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care.
It's much too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died, and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew,
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: John & Mary O Edwards 115341575
Thank you again for establishing their memorial. I have a goal of finding their markers someday. I have an idea of where they are it is just locating them because they are on private property.

Best Regards, Rhonda

John & Mary's son Lafayette married Frances Lightner. Frances is not John and Mary's daughter.
Thanks for recording their grave and life information. They are my great-great-great grandparents.
