|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have lived most of my adulthood in Charlotte, North Carolina. Coincidentally I ended up right where my roots are on my father's side of the family. Genealogy is my passion and I never met a cemetery I didn't like. I'm also into historic preservation, both of buildings and the lives of people no longer with us.|
As the daughter of a general and great-granddaughter of 3 Confederate veterans, I like to note military records of veterans on their findagrave memorials.
I welcome corrections/additions, but will no longer link to a "burial unknown" person. I have found this leads to duplicates.
FAMILIES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE: Irwin, DeWeese, Blackwelder, Babcock, Taylor, Wilbon.
FAMILIES ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE: Bryan, Battle, Pope, Atkinson, Yarbrough, Chappell.

Susan, you did a great job on my grandmother's biography--- thank you for that! Chrys was the daughter of Edward Holt Walton (1855-1891) and Mary Louise Turpin Walton of Augusta Georgia, and was a descendant of George Walton, the signer of the Declaration of Independence from Georgia. Receiving her State of Georgia teaching certificate, Chrys taught mathematics at the Holton-Arms School, a private girls' school in Washington DC, from 1913 to 1923. In Charlottesville Virginia, on October 18 1938, after a separation of three years, George B Eager Jr divorced Chrystie Walton Eager. >> The documents and photos related to my grandfather's life have been accepted by the Virginia Historical Society, so items like the divorce decree will be shortly out of my hands. It is a lucky chance that I looked at Find-A-Grave!<< Again, thank you for the superb job you did in memorializing my grandmother. I wanted in particular to provide the separation and divorce information. Sincerely, GBE IV, Charlottesville VA.
Thank you taking a photo of this veteran's grave!

I'm new to this but if you need help in the Columbus, Georgia area, just hollar at me.
|Brenda Christopher||Earle Talmadge Crowe Jr.|
I am trying to find Earle Talmadge Crowe Jr, which believe he was called "Sonny". He lived in Charlotte and at one point moved to Gainesville GA to work at Riverside Military Academy and then returned to Charlotte. I believe his wife was named Claire. Do you have any information about his sister or his children. I am related on the Crowe Side. My great-grandmother, Columbia Lee Crowe Deaton was a sister to Earle Talmadge Crowe Sr. Thanks so much.
Thanks for pointing that out Susan.
Very confusing with those two James Boyes's dying 10 days apart and buried in the same cemetery. I imagine they were family, but I don't know how they related. (Oh, that poor family.)
|Laurie LaPage||Honbarger's of North Carolina|
Hi, Susan, I found the Find A Grave memorial for a Luther Honbarger, son of John V. Honbarger,and I'm wondering if he had a brother or half brother named Harlan Vasco "Bill" Honbarger? I don't know if you are related or just created the memorial site doing your volunteer work? I am trying to find any relatives/children of Harlan...I believe my mother may have been married to him in the early 1940s before she married my father. I can find several marriage and divorce records for this Harlan V. Honbarger but none list my mother, Della. If you have any information, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, LLaPage

I added a note-that I needed proof.
I always require proof of a change.
We don't have any choices of the first line- so I used the closest to what I wanted, and on the line under it- I ask for proof.
I will be glad to change it or add to it-or whatever- but require proof.
(Census records, death record or whatever)
Thanks a million for the wonderful photos and information on her husband. I truly appreciate your time!
Thank you so much for adding the grave photo!
