Leila was my mother's cousin. I thought she had passed, and searched for her obituary. Here it is.

D'AIUTOLO Leila Eldridge 76, of Lafayette, formerly a Ridgewood resident for 30 years, died unexpectedly on October 30.Born in Atlanta, Georgia, she never lost her southern accent or warm, friendly smile. Her love of gardening, nature, animals, photography and in later years Photoshopping, will never be forgotten. Following in her mother's footsteps, she was an avid genealogist. Her contributions to genealogy and historical societies are immeasurable.She was a devoted wife to Robert for 58 years. She was a loving mother to her daughters, Louise Poole and husband John of Ridgewood and Leila Parke and husband Kevin of Concord, Mass., and her predeceased son, Tom, and his devoted wife, Maureen of Charlotte, N.C. She was an adoring grandmother to Leila, Jack, and Laura Poole, Chris, Calvin, Oliver, and Tyler Parke, and Eric D'Aiutolo. She was a wonderful sister and aunt to Frank and Tom Eldridge and their families from Atlanta and Stone Mountain, Georgia.A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 28 at 2 p.m. at St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church in Ridgewood. Arrangements by C.C. Van Emburgh Funeral Home, Ridgewood.

Are you still active?
Hi Leila!
Are you still active on Find a Grave? I've sent you an edit asking if I could maintain the memorial for my 2nd great grandfather Jones Henry Reagin, buried in Lithonia, GA. I'm creating memorials for his spouse and some of his kids as well. Thank you for all that you have added to Find a Grave!

Do you know how we can obtain a copy of the "Bogle Family Records". We are doing genealogy on the Bogle family.

Capt James Montgomery
I have beleive my relative is related to the Captain. However, I've found there may be two David Montgomerys.

My David Montgomery is buried in the Mongomery Family cementery in Jasper County, Georgia. Could you shine light on this?

James Montgomery in Venable Family Cemetery
Hi Leila,
Thanks for all the nice memorials and information you made for James Montgomery and his family. He is Find A Grave Memorial# 34318295.
I have some family that married the Montgomery's and lived in Cave Spring, GA.
I was very impressed with your work and wanted to tell you so.

Venable Family (Georgia)
Hi Leila.

I am writing to you in regards to the Venable family from Jackson County, Georgia. My quick internet browsing has led me to you (and a couple others) here on Find-A-Grave.

First let me say, this is NOT part of my family line. However, I have begun this research by request of my husband. Who is also NOT related to the Venable line. Let me explain. My husband is a docent at the Crawford Long Museum in Jefferson, GA. He has been curious to find out more about the young man who was the first patient to have ether used during a procedure by Dr. Long. That young man was James M. Venable.

Unfortunately, we know very little about him and his family. Although I have just begun, I am piecing together small tidbits. (Very small.) And unfortunately, I haven't found anything about him, but more about his family.

I would be thrilled if you could help me with my quest to provide my husband, and possibly the museum, some more information about James and his family. From what we understand, he was born around 1821/1822, and died prior to 1854. Though we do not know why he died so young, or where he is buried.

Any help would be much appreciated. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Thank you in advance.

Leila I added a picture to John Inzer, Timber Ridge Cemetery, Hall Co., Ga. I thought the view of his entire plot was most interesting. His is the only one of the "stone"structures that has a marker. Do you know anything about the origin of this type of grave marker?

Your Venable family research and information is very good. Well done.
