Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Don, and I live in LaGrange, GA. I spent most of my life in Maryland, but when I retired, I move to GA. Since 2007, I have been the GA GenWeb manager for Troup County, GA, and have made extensive surveys of the smaller cemeteries in Troup County, GA. My GenWeb website can be found below.

I have extended my work to several additional cemeteries in either Troup County, or in counties near the Troup County line. I am currently computerizing the cemetery database for Troup County Archives. and have records for almost 22,000 graves in about 300 cemeteries. If you need help in Troup County, GA, I will be glad to help.

I enjoy researching cemetery gravestones. If I have listed a grave for which you are related, and you desire to actually manage that grave, let me know and I will transfer control.

John Gunn - 1896


I have the entire 1896 "LaFayette Sun" and his obituary is from that paper. This is not the first time I have found incorrect death dates on older tombstones. It's far more common than you might imagine. The old newspaper obits confirm it.

Hello Donald.
I was searching files for updates and ran across your memorial for K C Gaines. He was my third G grandfather and I've been looking for his resting place for several years. I have a memorial for him, as well. I would like to merge the two.

RE: Memorial 63260553
Thank you for all you have done, and yes they are my grandparents. I am also working with Troup County archives to ensure that I have the right people as far as my great grand parents are concerned. My family had a bad habit of not writing things down, so it has become difficult to nail down that side of the family. Again thank you for the correction, we are only human.

Memorial 63260553
The photos that have been posted for this memorial are not for the individual listed. My name is Nicholas Thornton and the photo graphs you have are of my grandmother and grandfather and not of Henry Mulkey. I am currently researching my family history and if you have found my great grandfathers grave them my great grandmother may be there as well and I am curious about her maiden name. Thank you.

James M Flowers
Thank you for all that you do for Find a Grave.
Phyllis Ellis Waller Flowers is buried with family in the Traylor Johnson Cemetery.
She is # 67184666.
I am looking for her husband's grave. He is James M Flowers b. June 5, 1804 Hancock County, Ga. d. Dec. 4, 1869 Mountville, Troup County, Georgia as listed on the US Census Mortality Schedule 1850-1885.
Phyllis is the sister of Isabella Waller Ransom. Isabella died when Martha Elizabeth Ransom was very young and she raised her as her own. Martha Elizabeth Ransom Newsom #67184688.
John J Ransom #67184690 is Martha Elizabeth's father James Ransom's brother.
Could he be in the same cemetery?
Thanks for any help,
Mary Ransom

Rosetta Woodard Bray
Thank you Donald for your contribution. Rosetta Woodard Bray was my great-grandfathers sister. I live in Maryland and I've never been to Troup or Meriwether Counties, but hope to visit one day. This is a great find! I'm sure there are several more of my Woodard relatives in the cemetery.

Thanks again,
Nicole Hicks
