Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired educator who just recently began searching for my families history. I am interested in finding out as much as possible so that I may get it recorded for my grandchildren. Hopefully, they will pass their heritage along to future generations. I have found a lot of info at ancestry on most of my family. However, there is a lot more to learn. Since I became a photo volunteer at FindAGrave, I have been visiting cemeteries and taking photos for others who live a distance away. This has also been done for me. I have photos of family that I could not have obtained without the help of other volunteers. I have teamed up with 2 other Find-a-gravers, Dottie Gilder and WD and the three of us work together to get as much information as we can for all the cemeteries in Tattnall Co. Genealogy is fascinating and there is so much history to be learned.

RE: Earlene Wasson
Thank you and I am so glad that Earlene has someone who loved her managing her memorial. I can understand about the name. My grandmother remarried and it lasted about 10 sec. and so I use her married name she used just about all of her life. I have seen this so many times with late marriages for widows.

Frances Woodrum
If Ann is concerned that Frances is not the mother, she should notify the person who created the memorial for the children. That is where linking takes place and unfortunately, thirteen year olds are often of childbearing age.

Ann...
Ann, I came on to contact Janice and saw your comment. Can't help but reply. If someone is 13 years of age, she can certainly have children.

When I am completing DAR applications for prospective members, I depend on Find A Grave for leads and information. We often use the photos of the gravestones as proof when nothing else exists. We can't use the write-ups, but they can lead us to other primary or secondary sources. Anyone who takes Find A Grave as the final word isn't doing research, and they are likely already passing along false info from Ancestry and other places. I use Ancestry the same way I do Find A Grave...to get leads and basic info to research. Yes, sometimes the info is incorrect, and I just contact the person to let them know. In genealogy it is surprising how many people have the same names, and may be married to someone with the same name. It is easy to confuse them, and the best of us have done that.

Please re-evaluate your comments in light of the fact that no amount of research can be correct 100% of the time. We all make mistakes. The protocol for Find A Grave is to contact the owner of the memorial and let them know. If this memorial is one of particular concern to you, and if you have information you would like to contribute and update frequently, you may wish to ask that the memorial be transferred to you.

Happy researching!

FRANCES WOODRUM
Janice, It is not possible for Frances Woodrum to be born in 1832 and have children born in 1845. Louisa Woodrum was born 21 January 1845 by Bulloch County school records in Bulloch Courthouse records.
Try a little research before writing misleading information. It is better to have no information than to have incorrect or poorly researched information. Now there is info that has to be corrected. Ricard Woodrum and Frances had 7 more children after Louisa. One person copies incorrect information, and another copies it and it just multiplies. Better would be asking if anyone knows where Frances was buried and her date o death. Ivy Bland also has no known burial place.
Ivy died 16 MAY 1889 by Births, Marriages and Deaths from Bulloch County, Georgia Newspapers, 1889-1916, Volume I, p.23. by Mrs. Lawrence B.Kelly.

Hi Janice,
Richard and his first wife, Theodosia, are my gggrandparents. I noticed on your memorial that you have her date of death as 1884 and burial place as Sylvania, Screven Co, Ga. She actually died in 1889, after giving birth to my ggrandfather, Ernest Richard, and is buried at Beaver Dam Baptist Church Cemetery in Grays, Jasper Co, SC in an unmarked grave.

Thanks, Gen
