|Bio and Links|
As an avid family historian living far from my hometown where my ancestors lived and died, most of my research is done via the Internet. I've learned invaluable info about my ancestors because of the time someone else spent photographing graves and posting pictures on FAG. I am most grateful to these people. |
Wanting to "Pay It Forward", when I am researching in a cemetery I try to photograph as many extra graves as possible concentrating my efforts to documenting neglected and abandoned graves, or those that have sunken and deteriorated to the point of almost being lost forever to time and the elements. I post this info for the benefit of others who may stumble across the memorials I have created in their own search.
If you want a posting removed, corrected or transferred to you let me know. If that person is not a direct relative or ancestor to me, I will likely honor your request as soon as I am able. Many of the people I post on FAG are not a direct relation to me.
It is rewarding to know I've helped others in the same way I've been helped.
Family Surnames I spend research most:
Maternal: Aultman, Bryant, Hudson, Jones
Paternal: Bell, Hillard, Raleigh, Simmone
My Husband's & Children's Surnames:
Maternal: Bush, Emfinger
Paternal: Gothard, Morrison
A Tribute to My Granny
My interest in my family history began as a child sitting at the knees of my beloved grandmother, Thelma HUDSON Aultman. I fondly remember being fascinated by the stories of her life growing up the seventh of 8 children to a poor farmer and his wife.
Granny was a kind, loving and selfless person who never sought attention. She was the hardest working person I've ever known, bar none. At age 7 following her mother's stroke, she left school to become the childcare provider to her toddler brother, cook and housekeeper for her 7 siblings and parents. At 13, she started working in the Happ's men's clothing factory and retired from there at age 65. She sewed, gardened, cooked, nursed sick relatives and served others her entire life.
As a teen, Granny was the only person who made me feel loved and accepted unconditionally. She was my "soft spot" in a hard world.
Granny was the closest thing to a saint as anyone I've ever known and I will love and miss her for the rest of my life.
If you are so inclined it would mean a lot to me to have you leave flowers at her memorial.

I attempted to send an "edit" message from Mary's memorial page but it was returned as undeliverable to your email address; hence this public message.
Would appreciate the following being posted:
correct her husband's nickname to reflect "Buck"
add link to father William Robert Rowland: 93637047
add link to mother Rachel Aultman Rowland: 93637187
Thanks in adance

|John Jones||RE: William Frank and Bessie Crawford Jones|
Yes I am related. My father is Alfred L.Jones Sr., their son.

Jacki, i believe that you and I share some ancestors. Many of my relatives on my father's side are buried at Society Hill in Crawford County, Ga. Joseph Ephriam Hudson was my GGG grandfather. (My grandparents are Thomas B. and Mary Railey Jackson). I have not been able to get any further back in my research than Joseph and his wife Melissa Aultman. I'm wondering if you can help me.
John and his wife actually share the same stone. And the dates do not match the dates of your Ella Yaun. Nala

Visit John Yaun's memorial page #48758279 and you will see that I photographed his and his wife's headstones that are side by side. Thanks, Nala

You are very welcome Jacki. I was happy that it worked out well for you.

Jackie, I was most interested in the entourage you took into Fort Hill Cemetery. I don't blame you. I may want to borrow "Darth" if I ever get brave enough to go there. I'm sure it all helped, but I'm sure that you were glad to get finished and out of there. I do so agree, it is shameful that one can't go to the final resting places of their loved ones without feeling afraid and looking over one's shoulder all the time. That just should not be. I have been wanting to go into Fort Hill for years, but with so many warnings to not go...I have heeded those warnings. Many years ago, I did drive in there, glanced about and just as quickly made an exit and have not been back. I do so wish Macon would do something about that area. Those old shack looking houses around there do not seem habitable. I wish Macon would tear them down. I have heard that it is a drug infested area and there are shootings there, but as I don't live in Macon, I can't verify that. However, if looks count in that department...it looks as unsafe a place as I remember ever seeing. I do thank you for those wonderful photographs that you probably took while you were glancing over your shoulder. Glenda
