Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family genealogy for a quite a few years now and it's become one of my passions.

I've found cemeteries to be such a valuable resource for genealogical information and have lengthened the branches of my family tree - thanks to physically visiting cemeteries and by 'virtually' visiting cemeteries on this site.

I hope that by recording graves in the cemeteries that I visit will help others. Feel free to use my headstone photos for your research and give credit (my name or a link to the memorial page).

I worked very hard to add these graves and photos to this site. I am more than happy to add any additional information to any memorial. If you are requesting a transfer, please make sure that it is within guidelines (they are a direct relative within four generations). Also, please make the transfer request through the "edit" tab on the memorial page.

Obituaries: Please note that according to the Guidelines, it is against policy to copy and paste obituaries word for word onto memorial pages. Any works published since 1923 are under copyright. I will not make these edits.

Quote from Help with FindAGrave: "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Do not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary.

William P. Cosby & Family Photo
I am of no relation to this family and want nothing from this except to give out the information in hopes this makes it back to its family. Anyway,my husband and I recently were at a local antique store in Auburn and found a photo of the William P. Cosby Family in front of a large house, there are 4 young men on the porch, and the following are all in front of a picket fence in front of the house: a middle aged woman in front of the fence in front of the house, a young girl & an older lady sitting in a chair, an older man sitting in a chair and 2 men who appear to be in their 20's standing by him. It was taken in 1895 and is in good condition. The names of the family are written on the back and are as follows:

Mr.& Mrs. W.P. Cosby
Oscar Cosby
B.O. Cosby
Blanche Cosby
Ermine C_____

printed on the front underneath the photo on the left is AMERICAN VIEW 00, in the middle is the date 1895 then on the right is BLACKSBURG, S.C.
I did a search for a couple of the family members on ancestry and it says they lived in Bens Smith, Gwinnett County, GA, Hog Mountain, Gwinnett and there is a census of them in Auburn, Barrow County, GA.

If anyone is interested in this photo you can contact the owner at Frank's Consignment in Auburn, GA, the number is 678-508-9603 and his email is franskconsignment@yahoo. We just met the owner & were talking to him about genealogy and how it was our hobby to find lost photos/bibles/items & help get them back to families & he showed us the photo. I don't know how much the photo is, you'd have to ask Frank. You can also tell him that it was Mark & Lisa Brown who gave you the information. I hope this finds a home !

I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give me your first and last name for the captions?

wrong memorial number entered
Hi, You added Mary Jo Freeman, memorial # 60403824, as a daughter of my great-grandmother, Erzsebet Szabari Flora, memorial # 31277134, but she is not her daughter. Her biological mother is Lottie May Tanner, memorial # 61277134. Notice that there is a difference in the first numbers of each memorial. You should have entered a "6" instead of a "3" when you linked them. Please delete Mary Jo Freeman as my great-grandmother's daughter and put her where she belongs with her biological mother, Lottie May Tanner. My great-grandmother would have been 49 and has never been in Georgia where Mary Jo Tanner was born. Thanks! Barb

Hi Valerie, I had seen your memorials for this family (nicely complete!) but have a question about the given father of John Amos as John LeHugh McManus. Other records indicate Mary B. Holley's husband (and James Amos' father) was John T. McManus, Jr. It could be a simply misreading but I would like to collaborate more with you to see if we can clear it up. Would you mind contacting me at my email address on my home page? Thank you kindly,
