Bio and Links
Bio Photo I spend part of my day every day working on genealogy. Got into cemeteries about 1993 and love it. I'm updating the Coweta County Georgia Cemetery book by taking pictures of all the tombstones in Coweta County and surrounding counties. Have a question call 770-304-9111.

===With Coweta having TWO New Hopes, Providences, Elims, Bethels, Bethlehems, Ebenezers, Holly Springs, Mt Gileads, Liberty Hills, Mt Carmels, St Marks, Wesley Chapels, =Mt Zion/Zion Hill, Tinch/Tench, Linch/Lynch, Calvary/Mt Calvary, FOUR Oak Grove/White Oak Groves, we see how new people can get discombobulated!

**Even the Social Security is holding back their Death Index's for 3 years now, the last year out is 2011. I don't feel as if I should help ID theives by putting birth dates after 1940 on the memorials. If this is your relative, then I'll transfer them to you and you can put the complete dates on them.***

******I HAVE COMPLETED TAKING PICTURES OF ALL STONES I COULD FIND IN ALL CEMETERIES IN COWETA EXCEPT: 4 churches whose grass was too tall and about 20 unknown cems I can't find. *****************

For those of you who do not know what cem in Coweta folks are buried in, you can ask someone to find which one.

If you would like a better pic, just email me.

Trying to list all the VETERANS who lived or died in Coweta Co GA in my virtual Cems.

Some of my scouts from Troop 47, First Baptist Church Newnan GA transcribed/took pictures of the some cemeteries. I will attempt to hurry up and put more pics on findagrave.

I am researching the following families: Couch, Brooks, Brown, Cannon, Delk, Drake, Ensley, Entrekin, Hubbard, Ivey, Loyd, Kimble, Kimball, Massey, Moore, Slaughter -- Beavers, Caldwell, Callaway, Chapman, Chappell, Cooper, Davis, Gresham, Harris, Hayes, Henderson, Henslee, Henson, Higgins, Hinton, Johnson, Jones, Kelley, Lawson, Lumpkin, McCullough, McMichael, Middlebrooks, Morgan, Neill, Nix, North, Pope, Quick, Rainwater, Reese, Spradlin, Story, Thompson, Todd, Ward, Williams, Wilson, & Wooton. all in Coweta County Georgia area in 1700-2014. Also, Wood, Goins, Snow, Roney, Holt, Bradshaw & Norman in Alamance/ Guiliford & Surry County NC areas.

Andrews Chapel UMC cemetery
Hello Dianne,First let me commend you on all your hard work! I know you must love it! Please let me make a request.The following people need to removed from the Andrews Chapel Cemetery site:
Eula parks /Ware 1949-2001
Willie James Parks 1946-1996
Fannie Ruth Parks Campbell 1944-2009
They are not in our cemetery,I think they belong in Wesley Chapel.

James Ellis Logan 1775-1839 His bio shows he is not here and where he is supposed to be.

Levi Phillips 1751-1840 He is buried in the family plot off Hutcheson Ferry Road The headstone pictured was placed on someone else's grave WITHOUT PERMISSION and has been removed.
Thanks for all you do,

Duplicate acct marker
I also made a duplicate acct marker too. Go under my virtual cemeteries and you will see accts for them. Pick one and you can copy that one too. I always add the original acct number to the footnotes when you expand the pick too. Hope these help in your acct findings! Maria

RE: unmarked grave photo
Yes, by all means. I only use it when I can prove that someone is buried in a certain place and ask that you reserve it for the same. Thanks, Maria

RE: Mary Walton Earhart
I'm a little lost, her parents being, Jesse Walton (1786 - 1851) and Elizabeth Nichols Walton (1781 - 1875).
Not finding anything about her grandparents, where is that info that you mentioned in your notes.

Thank you once again
Hey Dianne,

I hope you are feeling better than the last time I tried to contact you (when we were supposed to meet). Last night I stumbled upon the US Genweb project for Coweta County and lo and behold found wills for several Smiths! (I saw your name on many of the other wills by the way...you are very committed to our genealogy!) I found in those wills that Miles Smith was Martha Ann Smith's uncle, not father! Now I have more pieces to put together, but her father was Mark Smith.

Thanks for all you do!

Dianne,

My computer is glitching! That is why I haven't posted photo's in awhile. I didn't realize this one posted several times and I don't think I can remove it. I will have to see. Thanks for checking on me!

Blessings
Cheerful
