Bio and Links
Bio Photo I like find-a-grave because it is a great source to obtain information about relatives and ancestors in order to expand my family tree. I sometimes feel that I know some of these folks although most died before I was even born. It also allows me to uncover things that does not exactly bring "honor to the family name". But whatever happened, they are still my family. As they say, "it is what it is".

Reynolds-Barton Cemetery

I saw that you have taken photos in the Reynolds-Berry-Stephens Cemetery in Lula, GA. Can you tell me the location of either of these two cemeteries? A GPS location would be great. Or a location on Google Earth?

I have photographed most of the cemeteries in Hall county and would like to complete these also.

Hello there,

I was looking up the Hudson Plantation in South Carolina, trying to find a pic for our family tree. Mom said they tore that plantation down years ago and it's now a subdivision. Still would like to find pics though and have come up blank so far, but did find one in GA. There was a link there for the headstone for Thomas P Hudson and that he is your 3rd great grand-uncle??. I'm in the middle of updating our family tree on and Hudson is my mom's maiden name from the Hudson's in SC. I'm trying to put the link together and have missed something somewhere. Can you help?

going backwards, starting w/ My grandpa (mom's dad)I have the following:

Marvin Clayton Hudson wife, Evelyn N Castleberry
Vardry Hart Hudson wife, Lessie May Smith
Rev. Thomas E Hudson wife, Martha Ann Duncan (looking for indian heritage re Martha as a cousin of my moms has a pic of her in full indian dress. Said she was from the Cherokee deer tribe)
Woodward Hudson wife, Effarilla (Effie)R Smith
Burrell Vardry Hudson wife, Sarah Mahaffey
Abraham Hudson wife, Elizabeth Tyler
Henry Hudson wife, Mary Russell
Robert Hudson wife, Mary Farguson
Richard Hudson II wife, Mary Bowman
Richard Hudson wife, Mary Hayes
William Hudson II wife, Alice Turner
Henry Hudson wife, ?
Gentleman Henry Hudson I, Alderman of London, Lord of Manors wife, Barbara Watson
Rudolph (Herdson) Hudson wife, Elizabeth Pyel

If you or anyone else has any information on the Hudson line that I can link, or pics, that would be great!!

John W. Reynolds

Are you an Adams descendant of Mary Esther Adams? My research combined with your updates to the John W. Reynolds grave marker hint that we are distant cousins if you are.

I am a direct descendant of John W. Reynolds through Archelaus W. Reynolds and Sarah/Sallie Miller Reynolds. Seeing that you matched his grave to his obituary, I would love to know what you know about the Reynolds family in Hall County, GA.

I know I am descended from Archelaus W. Reynolds, as mentioned in the John W obituary, but I don't know too much for certain about him. DNA testing by the Reynolds DNA project of some Adams family members indicate they share the same paternal lineage as those descended from David Reynolds, who I believe is the father of Archelaus. If what the census records and obituaries imply about his relationship with Mary Esther Adams is true, then that is strong evidence for my lineage.

Please let me know if you have more information on Archelaus or even his brother Bartemus in Hall County. I really want to understand what happened to our family between Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.

RE: S.J. Richardson photo
Thanks for being considerate enough to ask about using the photo before using it. Please feel free to use it. Although I took the photo and have copyright, I do not exercise it as long as you do not receive payment for its use.

Glad I could help you out with your photo request.

Have a great day!

Reynolds-Barton Cemetery
I am taking photos of all the gravestones in Hall County. Was wondering if you could tell me the exact location of the Reynolds-Barton Cemetery? Also, if you know the location of any other unmapped cemeteries in Hall County?

Thanks for your help.
