Bio and Links
Bio Photo I brake for Headstones!

Genealogy and family is the history of ourselves. I am truly amazed why and how I made it on this earth, at this moment in time, after uncovering the hardships of my ancestors, especially during the War for Southern Independence. I enjoy stories and pictures from the past, and passing them along to others, through e-mail and social media.

If I can help others uncover clues to their past, I will feel blessed by the Lord in many ways. So please don't be afraid to ask for help.

THE STORY TELLERS - by unknown
We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but,instead, breathing life into all those who have gone before.

We are the storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one.

We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story.
"Those we love don't go away...They walk beside us every day...Unseen, unheard, but always near...Still loved, still missed and very dear."

Krumholz Articles
Check out Mrs. Krumholz - you will probably want to re-arrange the photos. I found a lot more on this - the story isa little different than what you heard. Maybe it got enhanced over the years.

Thank you - I will. Miss having it, but it went up a lot and I am on a fixed income. I just use it to help others, but love doing it. Thank you again - that is very sweet of you.

I could not find an obituary for her on 8/5/1907 or 8/7/1907 - There were Hollywood obits on those two dates. You would have to access The Atlanta Constitution by microfilm or Fold3 - which I do not have anymore due to cost. It has the entire paper on it so you can read every page, not just obituaries. Sorry I could not help more. Just send me an Edit if you wish to maintain her page.

RE: Sarah Davis - Hollywood Cemetery
Reggie, I go over there all the time by myself and have never been bothered. It is a "less than nice neighborhood", though - just be careful. If you will go to, then go to other, you will see a Hollywood map - James Stephens has placed every grave that has a marker on there, so you can find the exact location (or close). I took the pictures, but that was a few years back and I could not get there without some reference again. It is like a jungle in places as they have allowed it to grow up. A portion around the edges is mowed. The cemetery covers 3 huge corners and a tiered section of six wide rows.

Sarah Davis - Hollywood Cemetery
Hi, I have transferred her page to you and am happy for you to maintain it. I am hoping you will add her full name and link her to her family. I have worked long and hard on Hollywood for over 12 years now. I like to see a family member that is interested and willing to add more information and perhaps pictures, if you have any.

RE: Davis
Reggie, I do not have Andrew in my database. He does not show up on any of the census during that time frame. He is not listed as a child under Jeremiah Davis family. I will do more research and see if I can find any info on him.

4th AL Cavalry Co G addition
Reggie, is it possible for you to add my GGG grandad to the 4th AL Cav Co G virtual library? His name was Capt George W Butler and he is burried in Haney's Chapel. He was a member of the 4th Alabama Calvary (Russell), Company G, CSA.

I am very proud of my GGG grandad's service and would be honored if you included him.
