Bio and Links
Bio Photo My home is Alabama, always will be.

Researching the following Surnames:
Amberson, Ayers, Brockman. Decker, Ganey, Gober, Gilley, Gazaway/Gassaway, Gunnels, Hardwick/ Hartwick, McMillen, Pendergrass, Rogers, Randolph, Stewart, Turner, Westbrook, Wortham.
I grew up with Decoration Day (2nd Sunday in May) going to all the cemeteries were the family members were and the last one would be Dad's grave in Oneonta, Alabama. Visiting the family plots and placing roses on all the graves. Mom would work on the flowers for days. Afterwards, we would go to "Little Joe's" restaurant and have dinner, they served "Family Style". For those in other areas of the country this is like sitting down at grandma's house with bowls of food set on the table and everyone shares. Some of my most wonderful memories are setting around talking to the family, where they lived, what was their name, and stories. I miss Decoration Day, but FAG helps to fill that place in my heart.

My love is Genealogy and that is why I do FAG.
For all correspondence please enclude your member name and #.

FAG Guidelines for Transfers are: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Please if you are related email me;

FAG Guidelines: Bulk surname requests should not be made and will not be honored.

I will NOT transfer all members of a family; requesting to send all aunts, uncles, cousin, etc.... I will transfer based on your relationship.

Virtual Cemeteries

A Find A Grave Virtual Cemetery is essentially a collection of names from the Find A Grave database. As a Find A Grave contributor, you can build Virtual Cemeteries to group listings in whatever way you would like. For example, you might make a 'Smith Family Virtual Cemetery' where you would place all of the members of your Smith family tree. Other examples: 'My Favorite Actors' or 'Memorials I Visit Often'. A VIRTUAL CEMETERY HAS NO RELATION TO A REAL CEMETERY! People listed in your VIRTUAL cemeteries can be buried in many different REAL cemeteries. You can add any name in the Find A Grave database to the Virtual Cemeteries you create and you can choose to make your Virtual Cemeteries visible to the visitors of your Find A Grave Contributor Profile page.
Please submit any additions or corrections to me under "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION" on the memorial site. I will be happy to add any information and relationship links for you, please furnish appropriate link numbers.

If you have something that needs attention in a timely manner please email me.

Thanks, but you should have given me all this information the first time.

You should contact findagrave, point out they are the same person and let them combine these records. The Ledlow may have the obit, but mine has all the family links, which would be lost if I delete my record. Thanks for your concern.

Mrs. Osborn
I'm sorry to be such a bother, but adding information takes time and there is lots of information on my listing. I knew Mrs Osborn and I did not see another listing when I added my information. When I do a name search on Mrs. Osborn at Johnson Chapel mine is the only one that comes up. I don't know how to search by the gave number you gave me. You might ask findagrave to combine the listings and the ownership will go to the first listing posted. I will not delete until I see the other listing for myself.

Happy New Year--!
Your heart is in the right place, bur his burial is not. Per his Service Records, he died in General Hospital #9, Richmond, Va.
He isn't listed in Hollywood Cemetery there, but might be in Oakwood Cemetery.

I've inquired of a gentleman who is researching those Southern Patriots buried there.
I'll let you know what he finds.

RE: Memorial # 14295760
I'm not sure if I answered your post or not...I'm having more and more "senior moments" lol I haven't worked on F.A.G very much in recent months to remember all the rules.
I think anyone CAN put a photo on the memorials as you said. Please feel free to add pics to any of my memorials. Have a great day!

I noticed that you left virtual flower for my great grandmother. My Grandmother is Ina Christine Bullard Pate. Are we related? If so, I would love to find out any history that you have on the Bullard or Brock family.
