Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have lived most of my adulthood in Charlotte, North Carolina. Coincidentally I ended up right where my roots are on my father's side of the family. Genealogy is my passion and I never met a cemetery I didn't like. I'm also into historic preservation, both of buildings and the lives of people no longer with us.

As the daughter of a general and great-granddaughter of 3 Confederate veterans, I like to note military records of veterans on their findagrave memorials.

I welcome corrections/additions, but will no longer link to a "burial unknown" person. I have found this leads to duplicates.

FAMILIES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE: Irwin, DeWeese, Blackwelder, Babcock, Taylor, Wilbon.

FAMILIES ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE: Bryan, Battle, Pope, Atkinson, Yarbrough, Chappell.

Thank you for all your contributions on Find A Grave. I've been searching for my grandson's paternal family members for 13 years and I found his Great Grandfather Charles Nathaniel Bowen and Great Grandmother Lois Moore Bowen (Find A Grave Memorial# 138782822) because YOU created their Memorial Pages. On behalf of my Grandson (13 now) Thank you very much!!

My Fathers Memorial
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all you do! Your timing was perfect, you posted my fathers memorial from Sharon Memorial, just days after he passed, he will never be lost because of your dedication, thank you!

Military records
My name is Susan Branon and I too live in Charlotte,NC. In fact, I am a fourth generation Charlottean. I am trying to find out information about my father-in-law's military service in WWI in Paris. Yes, that is WWI. He was nearly 50 when my husband was born! If you could lead me to links that would provide information I would greatly appreciate it. I am a member of but am just learning how to negotiate the site. I found you through this site after locating the page about his grave in Sharon Memorial cemetery.
Thanks so much.
