Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Carol and have lived in Georgia all my life. Residing in N.E. Atlanta for many years and grew up in Hapeville, Georgia.

My Dad began this amazing journey in finding our heritage. While on this journey we had discovered so many relatives and friends.

Peternal Lineage ...

Hape ~ Rogers ~ Puderbach ~ Putnam ~ Hall ~ Naill ~ Ecker ~ Engel ~ Reifsnider ~ King ~ Robbins ~ Thompson ...

Maternal Lineage ...

Hunt ~ Edwards ~ Harris ~ Brown ~ Clay ~ Simmons ~ Wingate ~ Maddox/Maddux ~ Knott ~ LeSueur ~ Stinson ~ Bryant ~ Harper ~ Wyatt ~ Tyler ~ Strother ~ Shy/Shi ~ Chastain ~ Hancock ~ Batte ~ Birchett/Burchett ~ Judkins ~ Polk ~ McLarty ~ Eidson ~ Daniell ...

Most of these memorials are based on personal research from my family history (birth, death, marriage, military & other records). Other information was taken from grave markers or obituaries that I've discovered over the years. Cannot guarantee the accuracy of all these memorials, but believe most of them to be correct.

Will be glad to make memorial transfers upon request that is if related. Would very much like to hear from you and should you have any additional information and if there are any corrections to be made, please let me know.

RE: Thaddeus P. Shy, C.S.A.
Thanks for making the change. Could you change the DOD to After 1900? If I pin it down, I'll let you know.
Many thanks!

Thaddeus P. Shy
Hi Carole,
Thank you for the countless hours you spend posting to find a grave. Your work has helped many people find their ancestors.
I wanted to share some info on Thaddeus P. Shy. He was a brother of my great grandmother Blakely S. Shy, wife of Elias Roberts.
You picked up the same error that I did but I finally have it straight. Lillian Henderson in Roster of Confederate Soldier of Georgia, combined the service records of Thaddeus SHY and Thaddeus PYE. They were two different people. The info that you have posted for Thaddeus SHY is actually Thaddeus PYE's record.
Thaddeus SHY enlisted in Co. B, 44th Ga. Vol. Inf. and then went into Co. K, 10th Ga. Cav. St. Guards, listed as T.P. Shy. Thaddeus Shy is listed in the 1900 Jasper Co. census.
BTW, Thaddeus is listed as Thomas P. Shy in the 1860 census.

RE: Elizabeth Daniell ~ 40653503
No. She was a Daniell by birth. I'm searching for the link. There were several of them by birth-- a popular name!! They ALL had large families too.

Do you know who Elizabeth Daniell's parents were? I have been searching for an Elizabeth Daniell that married someone else. Do you know if she remarried? Any info greatly appreciated!

Sydney Luther Huff - 79467916
Good afternoon! I am a volunteer photographer for Find A Grave in the Dearing GA area and I just finished canvassing the Dearing United Methodist Cemetery. Graves that are there but werenít listed on Find A Grave are now listed and every stone thatís in that cemetery now has a photograph.

After I finished, I printed out the interments list for the Dearing Cemetery which is right across the street from the Dearing UMC Cemetery. Iím going to start that one next. However I found some graves on that list that are really located in the DUMC. One of those belongs to you:

Sydney Luther Huff Ė 79467916

I have deleted the memorial I created for him in DUMC and moved my photos to your memorial. If you like, you can transfer Sydney from the Dearing Cemetery to the DUMC cemetery.

Earlier this summer I talked to a member of the Dearing town council about which cemetery was which. He said the Methodist cemetery is right next to the church and the cemetery across the road is the Dearing Cemetery. The Dearing Cemetery was also for a short time called Dearing Memorial by some funeral homes, creating more confusion, and some newspaper obituaries would not be specific as to which cemetery a person was being buried in! Hopefully Iíll get it all straightened out. ☺
