Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello. My name is Diane. I found this site by accident while trying to look up some information at the Riverside National Cemetery about my beloved late husband. Of course I found no real information.

I have been able to put a memorial for him on this site and that has been such a comfort to me. I am now trying to add names of loved ones for other people so that they too can find some peace by visiting the "site" of their loved ones final "resting place".

If you notice that I have incorrect information or you can add more information than I have, please use the edit tab on the memorial to send a correction or suggestion so that I know what memorial you are referring to. I am trying to be as accurate as possible for the families. As I get most of my information from newspaper obits -errors can and do occur. God Bless you all.

Please Note: I get a lot of request for information about the Gilliam family from all 50 states. Whenever I come across a memorial with the name "Gilliam" on it - I leave a flower on the site. I am not related to most of these people but I leave a little something just in case they are long lost relatives or related somehow through marriage. It makes me feel good to do this. Most of my relatives are from North Carolina.

I am writing to make mention that Phillip A. Buttermore has two find a grave numbers. They are
15140295 and 25739394. Perhaps they could be combined to be more efficient. Thanks.

DIANE----I see your name and flowers so thought you might be interested that the wife and I visited HIGHLAND in Rogersville, TN and photographed GILLIAM. There are new ones there.
Wonder if you might know the parents of brothers: JESSIE-1909, HERBERT-1913, JAMES V-1915, AND HENRY-1918??

William Lynch father of 34 children
I think you are one of the William Lynch descendants via Claxton Lynch to Nancy Lynch Belsher and so on. If you are I have been looking for Claxton Lynch descendants. We have a FB page where we are trying to unite the 34 children families. So far there are 18 of the 34. You and family are welcome to join us. Would love to hear from you!

Hi Diane,

I am the daughter of Bessie Gilliam, grave located at New Harmony CME Church, West Point, GA. I am going to add her obituary at some point in time in case someone is looking for it or her location. Thanks for what you are doing.

DIANE-- HELLO, I noticed you are very good about putting flowers on ALL the GILLIAM. Glen was a special friend of the ROLLER family reunion each year. I created a memorial for him AND the wife and I went to Holston View and got photos for Glen and Viola plus a couple other GILLIAM. Will get them up tomorrow. Just though you might want to know there was one more GILLIAM to place flowers.

my great-grandfather
Diane, if you, or anyone can help me at all, I would be so grateful. This is my Great-grandfather's grave. His son, Luther Carl was my grandfather., and was killed in a coal mine when my mother was 4. She doesn't know much about him, and I'm trying to research her ancestry for Christmas. I keep hitting dead ends. Is there anyone who knows about them? My # is 248)762-6370, and my name is Susan.
Thank you
