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.

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,

Wiley Powell and Maria Adkins Powell
Thank you so much for the photos and information on Wiley Powell and Maria Adkins Powell, my third great grandparents.
I would love to get more information about their 10 children, as there appears to be some online confusion regarding the number of children and their names?
(I got the number of children from the obituary and your info for Maria Adkins Powell.)
Could you please contact me via my findagrave profile?
Thanks again for all your wonderful and helpful work.
