Bio and Links
I am retired. I have been doing genealogical research on my family lines for about 20 years. For the past few years I've put my research on the "back burner" but now that I've retired, I'm back into it. I enjoy going through cemeteries and each headstone tells only a very short history of that person's life. I now get to do several of my favorite hobbies, all at the same time, history, genealogy research, photography, walking through cemeteries, and motorcycle riding.
Not all of the headstones I list are family lines. If you find a correction or have additional information, just let me know.
If you have any ATWELL'S and transfer them to me, I'll take good care of them, but I will not transfer any ATWELL'S.
In the future, please use the change buttons that FAG has provided. I do check these to see if they are correct, so if it seems to be in error, I will decline them.
I will not link unknown burials.

Mr. Atwell,

My husband is the 3x great grandson on James Gillespie Patterson through James' daughter Mary Eula Patterson who married Charlie Green Hughes. Would you be willing to transfer his memorial to me?

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration in this matter.

updates to eva b. hodges and Howard ray hodges
Hi Don,

I would like to request that these two records be updated to link as mother and son. I am Howard's granddaughter and know for a fact that Eva is his mother and not Dillon Brown Hodges as listed on his grave data. Dillie is Jordan I. Hodges 2nd wife but not Howard's mom. Eva died when Howard was very young.
Please contact me by my email address for further information.

Do you have an online family tree with H H Arnold and descendants? I only recently began studying these GG aunts and uncles in depth.

Hi, Don. Thanks for putting my aunt's mother-in-law up. Especially the photo. We have very little on her side of the family and we were wondering if you could determine who else was in this group of headstones. We're assuming there is a small group as her headstone is titled, "Mother". Her mother, Elizabeth (94129905), was married to Bowden Deese (100336025) but he ended up over at Poplar Spring Cemetery in Houston County 44 years later. Thanks again and for anything you might turn up. If you would rather reply to a regular email or have attachments or whatever, you can always find me at: jimscott at alum dot rit dot edu. Have a great day!
