Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related.

I volunteer at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, and am working on photo-documenting the whole cemetery. At this point, I prefer not to transfer memorials for this cemetery (other than mandatory transfers, of course) because my research is ongoing. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

NOTE: Obituaries are a wonderful source of information, but findagrave has rules about how they may be used. You can always glean facts from them for the bio. If they are out of copyright, or if you hold the copyright, you can transcribe them. Regardless of who has the copyright, you are not supposed to post them as a photograph - regardless of whether you scanned it, took a screen shot, or downloaded it from another website. Please feel free to send me obit text via the edit function, and I will use the info to add to the bio. Obits posted as photos will be removed, and it just ends up wasting your time.

Nannie's Maiden name
I did find a marriage certificate for Nannie and Jared Whitaker and it lists her maiden name as Allen. They were married on 07 Sep 1854 in Fulton County, Georgia. It can be accessed on Family Search Family Tree under Nannie E (ID # L4T4-62B).

RE: Nannie Whitaker
I humbly stand corrected. It was a matter of an erroneous merge of records with your Nannie and a Nancy E Allen on Family Search Family Tree and as I was sorting that out, neglected to double check as to whether or not Nannie had any documentation that stated her full name was Nancy. There is none that I could find. I apologize for my careless oversight and thank you for being so nice about it.

Death date for D.T. Davis
Re Death of D T Davis (Memorial# 142470763)
On your site your stated that you had two dates for his death, 1883 and 1889.

I believe this person was married to my 2nd great aunt (Mary Elizabeth Reeder) and their wedding took place 11 JUN 1884. They had two children, both girls. Daughter Pearl was born Nov 1885 and daughter Ruby was born 29 APR 1887.

I can find no documentation about this person, other than the marriage document. But, so far the death date of 1889 makes intuitive sense to me.

RE: Thank you!
Oh, okay, that's awesome information. Makes it a little more challenging given the chronological burials.

Thanks again for your time/effort!

Thank you!
Thanks so much for taking the picture of the I.B. Lichtenstein grave! Seems like there is some confusion in several family trees, as I.B.'s father is listed as:

- "I.B." in several documents
- "G.B." in several other documents
- Just "G" in another document.

Did you happen to notice if "I.B."'s father was buried next to him and/or the mother ("Hinde Lichtenstein") ??

Thanks again!!

Joseph Zanger probably died about 1864.

Joseph Zanger Memorial
It's very possible that the date on his stone was copied incorrectly when the new stone was made. I've checked the burial records and can find no record of his burial. The burials in St. Nicholas begin in 1818. The date on the sign probably is the formal establishment of the cemetery.
