Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy work for about 20 years with brief intervals of inactivity when my life took different turns. I love going to all the old cemeteries in South Georgia marveling at some of the old tombstones (some are quite elaborate and expensive even for that period of time) and dreaming about how our ancestors lived. Since my husband and I shared so many ancestors (including at least three great-great-great grandfathers), it was an easy task getting information about our "kinfolk". When my husband of nearly 40 years died in 2002 my enthusiasm for genealogy waned somewhat and I did little research for several years. I found the FindAGrave website about six months ago and entered a few memorials. I absolutely love entering memorials for so many of the South Georgia cemeteries which I have helped "survey" over the years thus enabling so many people access to this information. I especially like being able to link families and consider this one of the most important features of FindAGrave. I believe when entering genealogy information one should always be open to criticism in order to get information as accurate as possible -- especially when it is posted on the internet for so many thousands of people to view. Accuracy should be the #1 consideration for all genealogists and I will always strive for perfection.

Hazel Ann Davis #131705330
I am sorry for any confusion about me adding Mrs Ann Davis' Memorial but I did not see one for her when I put it on there. And as I know this family personally, I was just trying to link her with her father, mother and sister (my sister-in-law).

Would you please consider adding in the Bio: Her Husband: Freddie Davis and Her 3 Daughters: Bonnie Hawkins, Marsha Toler and Freddie Ann Davis.

Also, the death date year is 1999 instead of 1998.

Thank You so much for all the memorials and time you spend doing them. This website is awesome but I realize it would not be if it weren't for people like you!

correction joseph forehand

I done a little quick research after you pointed our the incorrect data and have been able to link Joseph to his parents Jesse and Lucretia. You are correct that Leroy is his brother. The corrections should have his memorial up-to-date now. Thanks, Brad

One is a cenotaph, but I do not know which one...I thought it would be ok to keep both, since they are in different cemeteries...
