Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've always loved hunting thru graveyards, even as a child I could be found exploring and reading the stones. I participate in many memorial services as a "Black Rose" (mourner) with the TN Society Order of Confederate Rose. Tho' I don't know but few of the names I list I believe everyone should be remembered, their lives are full of stories we'll never know, most leaving just a rock to speak their existence. I live in middle Tennessee, we have many small family graveyards here. As a genealogist I have found clues and info on FAG I've not found elsewhere. FAG has many errors and I'm more than willing to correct any that I may have on my memorials. Also I am NOT into the numbers games I believe information belongs to us all, ask NICELY I will transfer to you.

I just stumbled on your member page, and remembered that you helped me with some of my Bennett family info. a couple of years ago. I just wanted to say "Thanks" again for all the work you do for your fellow genealogists :)

Hi, just wanted you to know that I am going up to Arlington in next few weeks to visit my gram's grave, I live in Delaware, so it is about 3 hrs from where I live, but I am going to get request pics for others while I am there, and as she is in Sunnyside and I know where it is (I still have the map of sections) I will be getting yours.

RE: Your Bio
The Knowles connection - I am very sure is not mine - they came from NC to GA to FL.

The Headrick link - we have TONS of Headricks from Seveir County, TN - look up Headrick's Chapel Cemetery and you will see them. I do not know if any went to WV, but it is possible.

My husband's 3rd G Grandfather was John Headrick 1775 - 1867 who was born in Pennsylvania, but died in TN. - 3 older generations were from PA, but his 6th great grand father, Cohen Heinrich Headrick was from Germany.

Hope this is clearer than mud! Merry Christmas from Alabama

RE: Folton Shiver, Bethel, Worth Co, Ga
Yancy Independents.- Worth County, do know that unit is still alive? They have a website. It takes awhile to get an answer but I touched base with one of their members several months ago.

RE: Folton Shiver, Bethel, Worth Co, Ga
Have not seen these cemetery names before ..sure thank you for the information. Down here all I seem to find is the state and sometimes name of town where they died. ..Never a name of a cemetery! So have to Google..usually with no luck. Thanks again. Will keep this & use it!

RE: Folton Shiver, Bethel, Worth Co, Ga
No I am a researcher from Worth and Tift Counties, GA. I saw your message from him and asked for the same book to help me de-tangle and connect the Fords in Tift and Worth. I grew up next door to a wonderful Ford family and have been trying to get them figured out for years..since they are buried close to my parents at Isabella. Thanks for your help!
Next year is 150 year of surrender...and I am searching out all confederates in our area to get them listed so S. C. V. can get them onto THEIR SITE also. Thanks for wonderful message!

Folton Shiver, Bethel, Worth Co, Ga
You posted his CSA unit on his memory page. But I have been unable to find it listed either in virtual vault of GA pension records, or Fold3.
Can you tell me how you found it? Does he have another name besides Folton??Family knowledge???
Thanks so much.
