Bio Photo Hi,

My name is Chester Wallace and I've been a member of Find-A-Grave for a couple of years now. I live in Marietta, Ga. and welcome any requests for photos within a feesable distance of zip 30066. I mainly work on logging deceased family members and local cemeteries to Atlanta. At the present I am working to log Marietta City Cemetery. I'm also currently working on a project to locate the graves of the victims of the Winecoff Hotel fire in Atlanta, Georgia on December 7, 1946. I'm also working on a book about their lives as well as survivors, firemen and policeman who were on the scene so if anybody knows of anybody or family members of someone involved in the fire please let me know. I've been interested in cemeteries and especially genealogy since I was young. My grandmother would always want me to go with her to the local cemetery where I lived in Louisiana to visit her parents graves and they are on my site.

Good luck with finding your graves!

Chester Wallace

Annandales of Marietta
The Annandale family had a personal plot down the road from Oakton in Marietta. My grandfather took me there many times as a child...which was down the road also from the Dickson family home (Georgia Wilder Annandale Dickson). The little family plot set a top a hill overlooking the old highway. St. Mary Lane is near this. A couple of years ago, my mom and I were back in Marietta and went to look at it. To our amazement, it was gone. My mom even has the old deed and plot of the property (small area). Now, a lady's garage sets on top of what was the family cemetery. I knocked on the door. She insisted that is was an area for paupers. She even had a newspaper article about the pauper graves on her wall. True, the hilltop could have had pauper graves as well down from it. However, the wrought iron fence and family grave was there was well.

I was also told by another cousin that SEVERAL years prior, that a grave marker was picked up off the highway/Kennesaw that had fallen down to the road by a friend of theirs. Some how the marker was thrown away or discarded due to not knowing at the time whose or where it came from.

This area was the family plot given to the gardner "Annandale" for the Wilder family at Oakton. If you can dig up any info, please let me know. If so, please email me at laderholt8275@charter.net

My pleasure. I also took one for Banks Whiteman - I have no idea if/how they are related. Happy Hunting!

Chet,
Donald Jacobus Lines researched all the early families of New Haven, CT from far, far back covering many generations. His book is called Ancient Families of New Haven, Ct. It will be a great source of information for you, already researched. I got my disk quite a while ago from ancestry. Try a Google search. Hope this helps you out.

Hi Chet,
I have many Trowbridge' s in our Gilbert tree. However, not that particular branch. Have you tried Jacobus Lines genealogies or maybe ancestry.com. Sorry I'm not more help.
