Martha Eleanora Holliday - 2 different sites
When I looked up grave information for Martha Eleanora Holliday on Find-a-Grave, there were two hits -- one for this site (Oak Hill) and one for Rest Haven.

The two records were a little different. Same death date, but different birth date. I found this quite confusing. From studying the photos, I eventually realized that they are for the same grave and that apparently the section of Oak Hill where Martha is buried was called Rest Haven.

It would be good to either combine the two records and put a note of explanation on each record cross-referencing the other and explaining that they are the same cemetery. BTW, the birthdate for the Oak Hill record is correct (Dec. 3, 1849) since the tombstone indicates Martha was 6 months & 9 days old).

(I'll also send this message to the person who maintains the Rest Haven Cemetery Find-a-Grave record.)

RE: Manus Family
Hi Penny,

I research the Manus mainly for my half sister, Mary Frances Manus, daughter of Rhome Jefferson Manus & Hattie Henson, married my father, Izagay "Ike" west.

I have many spellings for Manus. I can send you an invite to view my West Tree that have Manus, I don't know if that will help or not, I will need your email address to do that. I still have research to do on the Manus line. Happy hunting, Jo

Doc Holliday
Penny, Are you related to the Hollidays? As a family tree revealed, I was great nephew to Dr. Crawford Long and a cousin to Doc Holliday. Would like to have more information if you are interested in chatting.
Thank You,
Larry D. Long

RE: House
Thanks, Penny! I found it and a lot more.. Don't want to attach my email addy since this is a public board, do you have another way of doing it? I think I just need to talk to a local historian. Do you have any suggestions?

RE: Rachel Martin

You are credited with posting this picture.. and the attached information says it has been moved and restored.
I live in Alabama and only recently discovered our relationship to the Martins. When I googled the street address all I got was a vacant lot, so I am very surprised to read the house is still in tact and could be viewed.
Do you know who I should contact for a visit? I plan to take a trip to Valdosta once I gather all the information needed to various cemeteries, etc. I'd like to add the house to my list of places to visit. My lineage goes back to Valdosta on both sides of my family, so it's quite intensive.
