Bio and Links
Bio Photo I prefer to limit transfers to established, regular contributors to Find a Grave who demonstrate an understanding of the FAQs and purpose of the site. Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related. If you are brand new here, welcome! Folks come and go often, and I like to make sure you're going to stick around and contribute regularly before I transfer. You may want to read the "help with Find a Grave" section to understand the purpose of the site.

I volunteer at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, and am working on photo-documenting the whole cemetery. At this point, I prefer not to transfer memorials for this cemetery (other than mandatory transfers, of course) because my research is ongoing. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

The Youngblood graves in Oakland
Thank you for your reply. I believe you are correct. Perhaps she is the next generation back.

Sarah Gilstrap Youngblood #134633184
First,thank you for your work. Findagrave is a treasure to researchers.
I believe that this lady was the wife of G G [George G] Youngblood #142452102 and mother of G G Youngblood #142452119. She married George in Carroll Co in 1845 with the name Sarah McGinnis. In your experience, is her flat stone too modern for 1879? Is it a more recent addition? Her birth year was much later than 1805--perhaps 1825 because she had her first child in 1847. Clearly, someone believed her maiden name was Gilstrap enough to place it on the stone. Regarding her son G G born 1847, he was living in the 1860 census, but the memorial says he died in 1857. Is there a stone for him?

RE: jasper nix
You are correct, I did in fact get the two mixed up. Thank you for the correction.

PHOTO UPDATE
As lovely as it is, you may want to remove the cemetery photo for Frank Crawford Armstrong and add the photo and bio instead:
Born in the Choctaw Agency, Indian Territory (Oklahoma) on November 22, 1835, Francis “Frank” Crawford Armstrong was commissioned a second lieutenant in the 2nd U. S. Dragoons in June 1855. Promoted to captain in the spring of 1861, Armstrong led his company of dragoons at the Battle of First Bull Run on July 21, 1861. He resigned for the U. S. Army the following month and joined General Benjamin McCulloch’s Confederate forces in Arkansas.
Armstrong saw a great deal of combat during the remainder of the war. He served as an aide to Colonel James McIntosh in the Indian Territory in late 1861 and early 1862, and served with General McCulloch during the Pea Ridge campaign. After McCulloch’s death at Pea Ridge, he accompanied General Earl Van Dorn to the other side of Mississippi and was named colonel of the 3rd Louisiana Infantry. In July 1862, Armstrong was appointed acting brigadier general by Sterling Price and given command of all cavalry units in the Army of the West. He led a cavalry brigade at the Battle of Thompson’s Station, Tennessee in March 1863, and after being promoted to brigadier general the following month, took command of a brigade in General Nathan Bedford Forrest’s cavalry division. He led a division at the Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia, a brigade during the Atlanta Campaign, and helped cover the retreat of John Bell Hood’s Army of Tennessee after the Battle of Nashville. His last action was at Selma, Alabama in April 1865; he surrendered the following month.
Following the war Armstrong served as United States Indian Inspector and Assistant Commissioner of Indian Affairs.
Armstrong died in Bar Harbor, Maine, in 1909.

I moved her to Oakland. Is there a reason why she wasn't buried next to her husband?

RE: Witts
Yes, Section 7
The Witt's in Section 15 have no grave markers at all - and this includes Charles C. Witt who died July 14, 1918 - you have him in Section 7

Charles C. Witt died of Cancer, his wife is Mary Witt (died-1922)

Mine is taken from a higher angle - Hans - I guess it's OK to have additional photo as long as nothing else needs to be posted.

RE: Louis's name
I don't think Henry was his nickname. Everything I found on him had Henry in parenthesis. So I put his full name down in the bio section.
