Bio and Links
I've been an amateur genealogist for almost 40 years and I'm still continually amazed by the openhandedness I encounter among my fellow researchers - genealogists have to be the most generous bunch of people in the world.

I try to pass on records I come across that establish relationships, maiden names, AKAs and so on. I'm sure I can be quite annoying trying to make sure this information is as close to accurate as possible but it seems like the least we can do for our ancestors.

I feel especially compelled to create pages or fill in the biographical blanks for fallen soldiers, whether or not I'm directly related and regardless of the conflict or the cause, especially for those who seem to have been forgotten because they had no spouse or children or surviving parents to memorialize them. It just seems wrong for someone's ultimate sacrifice to go unremarked.

Charles Woodson Statham
Re. the Woodson significance, I don't know. I didn't know about Oliver Woodson, but Charlie Woodson Statham, Jr. had a son named James Woodson Statham, who died in Texas in 1976. Maybe it comes from Jesse's wife's side of the family?

RE: Hale
Done. I'm glad to unite the mother's memorial with the children. The records are somewhat confusing and read as:

Hale, Guy BG 5 107A 1 Nov 25, 1962 Medford Ma - -
Hale, Harriet C. BG 1 31 5 Nov 20, 1965 Salem Ma - -
Hale, Herbert Stanley LG 5 84 (143) 7 June 20, 1940 Nantucket MA 1913 Rockport MA
Hale, Myra E. BG 5 49 - Aug 06, 1978 Gloucester MA - -
Hale, Nathan BG 1 31 2 Jun 06, 1910 Rockport Ma Aug 29, 1809 Haverhill Ma
Hale, Nellie Francis (Parsons) BG 3 78 10 Sep 28, 1942 Rockport Ma Oct "("[9], 1878 Rockport Ma
Hale, W. Monroe BG 5 107A 16 Oct 02, 1999 Danvers MA - -
Hale, Walter S. LG 7 1 4 Mar 20, 1966 Bedford MA - -
Hale, Jr., Walter Scott BG 1 31 4 Jul 19, 1964 San Mateo CA - -
Hale, Walter Scott BG 1 31 3 May 20, 1922 Rockport Ma Jan 21, 1875 Haverhill Ma
Hale, Jr. Walter Scott BG 1 31 1 00-00-1908 Rockport Ma 00-00-1907 Rockport Ma

I've included one additional record on either side of the ones that are yours (or like-named).

Gotta run,

RE: Hale edits
No problem, on any delays. If they are your relatives, I'm glad if the extra info helps. If you would like any that I've added, request them as transfers. I am unrelated, but was curious as I added the pictures of nearby graves to my wife's ancestors. Regard... Barry

Caroline Seibels Statham
Just wondering if you know anything about the 2 Lesley children living with Caroline Statham and her mother in 1860, Hinds, MS. If you'd like to contact me thru my email, you can do so at my page. Thank you !

My entry of the name/dates/ place of burial came from a cemetery book.

The additional information came from:

Nice to "meet" YOU!! :) Our Newmans came from England in about 1635 to Virginia...then, migrated to South Carolina...maybe we ARE related! :) THAT would be a HOOT! :)

The three sons that came in 1635 were John, Thomas, & line comes through Thomas (b 1620, London, England)...

Goes, as follows:

Thomas Jr. (b. 1648 VA - d. 1705 VA)
Thomas III (b. 1687 VA - d. 1730 VA)
George (b. 1725 VA - d. 1801 SC)
Reuben (b. 1757 VA - d. 1849 SC)
John Henry (b. 1790 SC - d. 1868 MS)
James Basil (b. 1830 SC, GA, OR MS - d. 1914 TX)
Thomas Wiley (b. 1869 MS - d. 1954 TX)
James Leon (b. 1891 TX - d. 1978 AR)
Edna Lucille Newman Newman Brumett (b. 1924 TX - Still Living - my Mother)

Do any of these ring a bell? :)

I'll be happy to help, anytime, if I can! Nice to know I'm not the only one that feels memorials are made to MEMORIALIZE...not just log... :)

I saw your message re: Lamar P. Davis...I am not leaving you a message ABOUT him...but, I wanted to say I AGREE WITH YOU!

I'm speaking about this message:
RE: Lamar P. Davis
First, I have no quibble with your not linking Lamar to his father since that's obviously at your discretion. But, rightly or wrongly, I comprehend the mission of FindAGrave more broadly. Because otherwise, it would rule out memorial pages for Civil War soldiers who fell in a known battle on a known date who can only be assumed to have been buried where they fell because there's no record showing the disposition of their remains. It would rule out people whose date and place of death are known from other official records like widows' pensions and court documents but who died before there were death certificates to give cemetery information (which not all of them do), or lived where there was no local newspaper to publish a death notice, or left surviving family too poor to put a permanent marker on their final resting place in an old church cemetery.

I've always viewed FindAGrave as a unique and invaluable place to share information about where people died as a way to connect them to the living, but if its mission is simply to catalog official death records and cemetery markers then I may, indeed, be in the wrong place.

I have relatives that I've made memorials for, not necessarily in the military...but, people who I'd LIKE remembered...and, cannot CONFIRM their exact burial place....and, whether some people like it or not, I feel Find-A-Grave is for MEMORIALIZING people as WELL as being a registry of graves. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for stating it so well...and, that I agree with YOU!

I have even had reference to a burial / cemetery on a state death certificate that I've made a memorial for...only to have a relative that I hadn't met, as yet, inform me that the person was, in fact, buried someplace else...and, that the burial reference on the death certificate was incorrect....

I try to follow the rules....but, as with anything - there is a "{fine line", if you know what I mean, as to how closely you can follow them when relying on only documentation that, as we know, can be incorrect, sometimes...

I'm just saying that people should not be so rigid....just sayin'...

So, anyway: Thanks for the well-thought-out, wonderfully stated message...I AGREE! :)

Let me know if I might be able to help-you-out in any way....I'll be happy to!

Take Care...

Lamar P. Davis
Find A Grave Memorial# 55912650

Your edit:
Jerry L. Davis
(1830 - 1876)

Will be declined as the memorial for the father does not contain the final disposition of the remains. FindAGrave is a grave registration site. There are other websites where you can link family trees.

Please see FindAGrave FAQs:

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.
