Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm an avid genealogist and photo enumerator of cemeteries. I've taken photos of headstones for many years, enumerated several cemeteries and slowly adding them online. My main project here on Find A Grave has been helping photo enumerate our oldest cemetery here in Amarillo for Llano Cemetery under the name 'Walter Dunn'.

I've received much more from Find A Grave than I have given and I am eternally grateful for this.

RE: See Memorial# 32836188
By the way, I deleted your public message that you left on my contributor page. I don't like to leave "personal stuff" like that for just anyone to read.

RE: See Memorial# 32836188
Good to know you removed that "note". Sorry, but I did not add Memorial# 32836188 for Hollis Wade McGuire.

Please go to his Memorial, and click on the tab on the far right, labeled Edit. From the choices you have, pick the option: Suggest any other correction or addition

Then, send a request to add more to his BIO - whatever information you'd like to see added to his BIO.

Be sure to check the box "Send me a copy of this email" - so you also get an e-mail. Save that e-mail, and if nothing is done in 30 days, then forward that message to Find A Grave editors, and they will take care of your request.

Good luck!

See Memorial# 32836188
Wanted to let you know, the "image note" you added explaining who the correct father of Hollis Wade McGuire was, can now be REMOVED from Memorial# 32836188. I noticed this, because Hollis was previously linked in error, to Memorial# 7309018 which I now manage. I submitted an edit to get Hollis linked to his correct father, and this has been fixed now.

Lucille Marshall # 82472051
The spouse connection for Lucille Marshall to Albert D. Marshall (1914 - 1975) was made on her memorial. You need to contact RD (#46789230) to make the correction.

Hi, Ruth :) Thank you so much for the information you sent about Isabella Redding. I have added it to her memorial. I see someone has added photos to it also. "Isabella" is on her headstone. Her husband is also buried in this cemetery-I have linked them. Thanks and take care. Kathy

Old Clarkesville Cemetery
I'm sorry that I didn't completely explain. I have never lived in Georgia. When I first joined Find A Grave I searched my MARTIN line back to Habersham County. I located Philip Martin buried at Old Clarkesville Cemetery and decided to research and list those individuals on Find A Grave. Cheryl Williams who lives close to the cemetery and is associated with the Friends Society worked with me to take headstone photos and make corrections. She is also a member of Find A Grave Member 47256955. I think you should contact her about the family information you have there. I know it would be so appreciated. Let me know what I can do if you need any assistance.

Thank you for the photos for these memorials and information has been added. The Old Clarkesville Memorial Cemetery was one of the first projects I submitted to Find A Grave. I researched the burials, and Cheryl Williams did the headstone photos. The Friends of the Old Clarkesville Memorial Cemetery Society uses our Find A Grave memorials. Thank you.

Hi, Yes it really is a dup, they have the last name spelled wrong is why is didn't show up in search and I didn't see it. I really prefer to keep it, his son Theodore was my great uncle. We lived just about 2 miles from them growing up and are still near there. the other contributor has passed away and therefore cannot get edits done. I have tried on her's before, Find A Grave don't seem to get to edits most of the time. I have ran across several she had that were in my family, but now no way to edit them. Maybe one of these days Find A Grave will get to editing, but meanwhile if I delete mine there's is still misspelled and links can't be made, no dates,etc.

Josiah Jenkins Anderson
Josiah Jenkins Anderson died in 1918 [not 1978], and is buried at Mt Pleasant Methodist Cemetery, Banks County with wife Susannah Nix Anderson, and next to their daughter Henrietta Anderson and her husband Benson Bascom Garrison, and next to his parents Enoch Candler Garrison and Orpha Clementine Meaders. My grandmother Myrtle Garrison was daughter of Josiah Jenkins Anderson and Susanah Nix. The book on Josiah Jenkins Anderson said Joshua's full name was Joshua Polk Anderon. Thank you for maintaining the memorial.

RE: Solomon Lucinda Nichols
I did read Nancy's info, and I will definitely get Nichols' photos when I see them.
