Bio Photo Thanks to Bentley Fallis for the following info for the unmarked graves in Hillview East:

During the great flu epidemic of 1918 my dad was all of twelve years old and he said that CW Coleman , who wrote the county history, was a scout leader and a school official got a group of scouts together to dig graves as there were so many dying and having to be buried hastily during the epidemic. Maybe the city kept a record. In the old days the lots were sold and there is an actual deed recorded in the Troup county courthouse. I know as I have the deed from my grandparents lot from October 1923.
They also helped during the night that the tornado literally (1920)removed houses in the SW end of Callaway village I believe the end of Stonewall and Troup streets. Anyway the only light they had searching for people was Mr. Coleman's car which my dad learned to drive that night at 14 years old. He also had to go get gas and kerosene to help out.


There are over 400 "unknown" in the Hilview East also known as Hillview Annex Cemetery in LaGrange, Georgia, in the Pauper Section.. If you know who any of them are, please contact me. Of the 19 that have been identified by family and now have a marker with name and dates, the death year ranges between 1900 and 1949.

If you have a loved one that died in LaGrange Georgia or Troup County Georgia, and you have not found their grave, consider that they may be here.

I would appreciate it if you could leave a few flowers on their memorials. They are listed as Pauper Unknown and have the number that is on their marker.


Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone.

There is three ways:

1. You can call our local paper Press Sentinel. With them, it would be a long drawn thing.

2. You can go online to the Savannah Morning News and find it there. This would be faster.

3. You can contact the funeral home.

If you run into any problems, let me know and I will get it for you.

P.S. We took Toni to the beach today. She loves that.!

Find A Grave Memorial# 157354688
Thank You Sharon for noticing all 3 entries for Elmer R "ER" Grandey. I have deleted the previous 2 entries. #s (76, 80.) I can only say there was a time that if you did anything during the wait time between hitting enter and getting the new memorial #, it would generate a duplicate #ed memorial. This was the first time I'd experienced that happening. Thanks for letting me know.

John Hubert Binns
Thank you Sharon for (1) cluing me in on the fact that I had Mr. Binns in the wrong cemetery. I have made the correction....and (2) for your offer to delete your memorial for Mr. Binns and adding the photo of his gravestone to my memorial for him. I did not personally know Mr. Binns, but I created the memorial at the request of his son, my friend, Rev. Jerry Hubert Binns who lives in a senior-living facility here in Omaha, NE. Thank you. J. Keith Cook in Omaha.
