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.

**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 1700-2003. Also, Wood, Goins, Snow, Roney, Holt, Bradshaw & Norman in Alamance/ Guiliford & Surry County NC areas.

RE: edits
Yes we are. I'm going through years of copies of obits from the Newnan paper that I've taken on my yearly trip and trying to add information to people's memorials that happened to have an obit on the same page as the one's for my family.

And I did have a good visit and a safe trip home, long and tiring. But I'm so glad to be home.

And thanks for processing the edits so quickly. It really helps.

RE: Corrections & Transfers
Martha E Hubbard Beavers is the wife of my second great grand uncle, John Allen Beavers. John Allen Beavers was the son of James Beavers and Lydia Reed Beavers. James and Lydia had an older son named William H Beavers (who would have been a brother to John Allen Beavers). I am a descendent through William H Beavers (my second great grandfather) via his oldest son William Jones Beavers (my great grandfather) via his oldest daughter, Annie Mae Beavers (my grandmother). I have over 100 pages on the James Beavers family and his descendents. Will be glad to help in any way you need.
