I have been doing family research for a little over 38 years now (began in 1976). I originally started working mainly on my LOCKLIN family. Over the years I have expanded my work on various family lines. Currently I am focusing on the following:
My Paternal Lines: LOCKLIN, FOKES, McLENNAN, FULCHER, MERCER, ZACHRY, GUTHRIE, BURKE, SMITH, LARGE, PAGE and many others connected to these surnames.
My Granddaughter's (Kayrinn) Maternal Lines: HURT, RODGERS, ASHLEY, BIEHLE
My Grandson's (Colby) Maternal Lines: HILL, LOVE, WEBB, BIEHLE
My Very Significant Other's (JR) Lines: HAYES, BRANSON, BREWER, PITTMAN
If you are related to any of these lines, please contact me. ********************************* I have created a LOCKLIN group page on Facebook titled Descendants of Samuel Locklin (1744-????). If you are a descendant of Samuel Locklin, please contact me on Facebook so I can add you to the group page. Currently, we have 329 descendants in the group. We are sharing photos, stories and other information on the group page. It is a "private" group which is by invitation only and only those in the group can read the posts and information and view the photos added there. My profile name on Facebook is: Sarah Locklin Taylor. **********************************
If you find errors or duplicate/multiple entries, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you have additional information you would like added to one the entries, I'll be most happy to add the information for you, or if the memorial is of one of your family members, I would be pleased to transfer it to your FindAGrave membership ID.
I have had many family members transferred to my membership profile and have worked to add family information to all of them. Be assured that I would never ask to have a memorial transferred to my membership for the sake of numbers. That is not my goal. I have numerous Virtual Cemeteries that are set up to hold members of the various direct lines/branches of my family tree.
I would like to thank all of the kind contributors who have been so nice to create them in the first place and then graciously allowing me to have them transferred. I would also like to thank all of the kind volunteer photographers and those that photograph the cemeteries as a hobby. You are doing a great service to preserve these cemeteries through digital imaging and are helping to preserve the memory of those that have gone before us.
I can't tell you how many additional family members of mine have been found by Bud and his lucky charm, Vicky Sue. He has been most generous with his time in photographing headstones throughout a 4 county area of GA for me. ~♥~ Thank you, Bud and Vicky Sue! ~♥~
Last but not least, I would like to thank the creator of FindAGrave, Jim Tipton, and his wonderful staff for one of the best Genealogical sites available online. You have truly created a great source and network for genealogists to search, find and contribute information. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ † ~~~~~~~~~~~~ My personal request to you....PLEASE, if you have a transfer request use the "Suggest a correction" and include your FindAGrave Contributor #, so that I can simply click on the link and transfer it to you. This process will automatically generate an email to you stating that the memorial has been transferred. It is also appreciated if you will include your relationship to the person you are requesting be transferred. I will not transfer a memorial simply by your "telling" me to transfer the memorial to you. I don't follow the suggested transfer guidelines, but it is nice to know what relation, if any, that you have to the memorial you are requesting. I have, in some cases, transferred High School Classmates, surrogate mothers, etc. Please include your relationship/reason for requesting the transfer.
Also, I would greatly appreciate it if you would NOT leave a correction or request to add additional information to memorials on the message board below - it makes it much more difficult to perform these tasks, especially on multiple requests listed in one message. While this may be easier for you - it is not as easy for me.
Notice.... If you send an email to me with NO SUBJECT, it will be deemed as SPAM and deleted.
I hope you understand. Thank you!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~ † ~~~~~~~~~~~~ † God Bless All †
re: Sarah Brown Carmichael Sarah - you have Sarah Brown Carmichael as buried in the McDonough City Cemetery, but she is actually buried in the Friendship Presbyterian Church cmetery in Butts County. I uploaded a copy of her original tombstone, which was half-buried, but there also exists a combined tombstone - if you take a look at her husband's tombstone picyou will see this.
RE: Additional wife of Samuel Shepard Sr? No problem. Just moved to area. Saw graveyard with a lot of documentation needed. (Slowly working on it.) Didn't see husband buried there, so, figured somebody was looking for her!
Additional wife of Samuel Shepard Sr? Hello. I might have found one of the spouses of Samuel Shepard buried in Rockdale County. Her name was Nodie Shepard. Nodie sounds like nickname for Nancy, etc. Her findagrave# is 160849405.
RE: Locklin Cemetery I reviewed the memorials I have created / manage and I believe Mr. Gamble is the only one for Locklin Cemetery. I did upload quite a few photos of headstones for existing memorials that did not have photos. A beautiful cemetery. If you need photos in the future contact me. I live nearby. joe
Locklin Cemetery Sarah, I processed the edit for Larry Gamble. I created the memorial as the result of a walk thru I did recently. I will be happy to transfer any memorial I have created for Locklin to you if you wish. joe
