Bio and Links
Bio Photo I transcribe and photograph cemeteries/grave sites because I know there is someone out there who can't make the trip or who doesn't really know where their loved ones resting place may be. My Motto: By Preserving Our Past, We Prepare For The Future!jhh That one transcription or photo CAN make a difference!

This pix is of my baby girl (Toni Stewart), she is named after Tony Stewart of NASCAR.

Ann is coming along slowly with the spider bite. She has had a big backstep and agressive therapy is now the norm.

RE: Barney Kennedy
Thank you for your kind offer to help, but no, I do not know anyone in that cemetery.
I am just correcting a few (29,000 so far) errors on Findagrave so that more people can find what they are looking for.
Thanks again.

Hi.. I hope all is well with you. I sat down tonight to add memorials and photos for the section of babies..section q. I was dreading all of the additions so I was pleasantly surprised to find that you had added all of the names.. I just had to add the photos. I hope we can get this cemetery totally recorded one day. I have added some info also to your edits page. One request..when you add a memorial, could you add a photo request for each? I have a lot of photos that I have not added yet and when I am at the cemetery, I have an app on my phone that tells me when a photo is requested and it keeps an alphabetical list of photos needed. When I see one on the list, I can photograph it and not pass by one that someone wants. Thanks for all of you work!! C J Smith

RE: 66021242
I have tried to locate a Blake Cemetery in Scotia,S.C. Scotia is located in Hampton County, S.C. There is no Blake Cemetery listed. The Blake Burying Ground which is in Chester, County, S.C. is a family cemetery, now deserted, and has not been used since around 1948. You may need to create a Blake Cemetery in Scotia for this 66021242 memorial. Thank you for your help. If, I can be of help please let me know.

RE: William Bird
Thank you JoAnn and sorry for the confusion. The correct William J. Bird that I was looking at has several children buried at Lower Lotts Creek along with his estranged wife. I thought it was a no brainer that this had to be the same William Bird but his pension application proved it wasn't as the birth years didn't match. The William J. Bird I am looking at was the son of Augustus Parker Bird and Hester Lanier of Bulloch County. I am not sure who the William Bird in this memorial is.

Thanks for your response. I would like to change the biography currently posted on his find a memorial to read as follows:

James J. Williams (1853 - 1920) married 1st Mary Lee, b. 14 May 1854, d. 26 Apr 1908. After his first wife's death, he buried her earthly remains in Lower Lotts Creek Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery, Bulloch County, Georgia. Several years later, he married 2nd the widow of Elder Remer Dekle (1858 - 1903), Mary Jane Bowen Dekle (b. 24 Nov 1858, d. 25 Nov 1943), the daughter of the late Silas Elisha Bowen (1815 - 1896) and Margaret E. McElveen (1822 - 1879). After his death, his 2nd wife, Mary Jane Bowen Dekle Williams, buried him beside his first wife in the Lower Lotts Creek Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery. His 2nd wife lived another 23 years and when she died her children from her 1st marriage had her interred in the private Bowen-Dekle Cemetery, located near Excelsior Community, Candler County, Georgia beside her first husband.

Note: Thank you for all the good works you have brought to the descendants of those deceased ancestors you have posted on May our good Lord continue to bless you and all your family.

RE: William Bird
Hello Joann,

Yes, you probably need to delete the military information. I was convinced this was the same William Bird because teh wife of William J. Bird, the one who did enlist in Company A, 4th Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters was also buried at Lower Lotts Creek Church..his wife is the one listed as Lucy Ann Edenfield Bird. But I learned from a cousin that the couple were separated at the time of William's death and the 1900 Census confirms this as William J. Bird is living in the household of one of his daughters and her family. My cousin told me that the husband and wife were estranged. So that is the reason for the Confusion. The Pensions records of William Bird prove he is not the one buried at Lower Lotts Creek Church. Sorry for the Confusion.

RE: Lewis & Bertie Cowart
Hi JoAnn,

No I'm not related, sorry. I'm a teacher at Martha Puckett & was trying to solve a little mystery. There were 4 find-a-grave requests that had been submitted over a year ago at "Pine Grove Baptist Cemetery" in Jesup.

As far as I know there is no such cemetery. There is the Piney Grove Cemetery in Odum & Spring Grove Cemetery right down the street from Martha Puckett. I went to Spring Grove Cemetery first since it was closest & found one of the requests there. While I was there I took some photos of the surrounding graves which the Cowarts happened to be.

FYI.....2 of the other requests turned out to already have memorial pages with headstone photos at Piney Grove Cemetery.
