Bio and Links
I started researching my family tree in July 1987. An old family photo hanging on my grandmother's wall got me started. My grandmother got excited and took me to all of her ancestors' graves in the area. They were located in Tallapoosa County, AL; Macon County, AL; and Lee County, AL.

Some of the names in my family tree are ALLEN, BARBER, DRISKELL, DUNSON, JACKSON, JERKINS, JOHNSTON, KEEN, KEENE, LEDBETTER, LOVINS, MANNING, MAY, McNEAL, MEADOWS, OLIVER, ROWELL, SPIVEY, TRAMMELL, VINES, WALTON, WOODWARD.

They are mostly located AL, FL, GA, NC, SC, TX, and VA.

If you see any corrections that I need to make, please let me know so I can update my records. I am happy to share any photos that I have made.

I try to make photos of graves near my family members when traveling. If I have created a memorial for one of your family members, please let me know, and I will be happy to transfer their memorial to you if I am not related.

Jeff Bryant
Some of my Bryant line is buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Birmingham, but I'm not sure about Oakland. Jeff Bryant and Minnie Manning Bryant do not sound familiar, but does not mean he is not a distant cousin. I will do a little more digging in my family and will let you know what I find.

John Sanders Bryant
John was my 3rd great grand uncle. His brother, William Agustus Bryant, was my 3rd great grandfather. I went back and looked at his birth information. The Milledgville, Oglethorpe, Georgia birth location came from a 1907 Alabama, Census of Confederate Soldiers. Don't know if Milledgville started out in Oglethorpe back in 1840 and over time the county boundaries changed putting it in Baldwin County. I also came across Alabama, Deaths and Burials Index, 1881-1974 that says he was born in Butts County, Georgia.

RE: Allen Jackson MANNING & Mary Lou GRIGGS
I am glad to transfer to you. I have done several cemeteries and had to look at several to find them. It would help if you could put the Cemetery name on your request. I just like doing these to help people that can't.

RE: John Andrew WARE (#7096377)
Cheryl,
Per your Find A Grave messages....
I have linked John Andrew Ware with Bessie Olivia York and Missouri Ann May. Linked Missouri Ann May with her parents, John Calvin May and Emily Jackson. Noted that John Andrew Ware is the grandson of John Calvin May and Emily Jackson. Linked Wilson Harold Ware with his parents, John Andrew Ware and Bessie Olivia York.

P.S. John Calvin May and Emily Jackson are my GG-Grandparents; William Robert Ware and Missouri Ann May are my great-grandpartns. We do not know when or where William Robert Ware died or is buried. John Andrew Ware is my great uncle and Wilson Ware is my 2nd cousin.

Allen is yours now. Very nice picture!
Hopefully you can add his full/correct birthdate since I didn't have that info. I like when I can transfer to family and friends. Thanks for contacting me. ;-)edie
