|Bio and Links|
I enjoy visiting cemeteries, taking photos of the gravestones and statuary. I was so excited when I discovered the FIND A GRAVE website because I finally have a place to use the information I have been gathering. |
My special interests are my ancestors' families: McCorkle, Brandon, Locke, McLeod, Coleman, Yeomans/Youmans, Rountree, Gardner, Webb, Moore, Brashear, Pitts, Hall, Forney, Hoke, Bergner, Balfour, Abernethy, Givhan, Johnson, Mobberley, Potts, Pegram, Bumpass, Matthews, Perry, Coats, Jenkins, Dorsey, Pope, Chapman, Dixon, Porter, Sandifer, Dickinson, Loughlin, Wallette, etc.
Recently I have begun research of my husband's family and am interested in the Landrum, Corbett, Carter, Pruitt, Redmond, Music, Wilkie and King families.
My profile photo is of the real "Little Marie." She was Marie Chapman Senyard, daughter of Mary Ethel Brashear and Dr. Oscar Chapman, sister of Elmo Mobley Chapman, and wife of Faye Senyard. She was my grandmother Alice McCorkle Coleman's first cousin, and, though I never knew her, I know that she, like many other members of our family, was very interested in preserving her family's history and heritage, as I am. I use her picture to honor her. This picture is courtesy of Moses M. Coleman, Jr., my father.
Much of the personal family info that I have been able to add to my family memorials comes from the book "Granny Bess" which contains historical info, letters, newspaper articles, and photos of the McCorkle, Brashear, Moore, Webb, Dorsey, Johnson and related families.
Two other excellent sources of information for Moore family research are the book "Rodeham Moore of Patrick County, Va - His Descendants and Known Kin" by Merle Moore, and The Association For The Descendants of Rodeham Moore. The Association is a national organization and has an internet web site.

Hi Little Marie,
I noticed that you have entered my father in law whom we buried yesterday. I was wondering if you would mind transferring the management of his memorial to me. I am the hisorian for the family.

May you please transfer my family to me. I would very much appreciate it. Thank you for taking your time to do this!
|Billy Walker||Malcolm D Hughes Duplicate|
Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate memorials for Private Malcolm D. Hughes in the Mount Vernon Cemetery, Montgomery County Georgia.
I have added the photo of the tombstone to the original memorial # 75741317 and deleted the memorial I created. Although the original has him as a Captain, I can find no documentation of that rank. Private Hughes joined the Montgomery Sharpshooters, Company E, 61st Georgia Volunteer Infantry in July 1861 and was wounded in the arm, resulting in it being amputated, at the battle of the Wilderness in Virginia on May 5, 1864.

ok thanks for all your hard work on putting this together .... we do have a Shope book that Ina Shope put together for us years ago .... but now I can update the book
|CYNTHIA PICKARD||RE: Raymond|
yes I would love for you to add this to my father's memorial if you do not mind .... I appreciate all that you have done so far .... hope this can help
Just thought you would like to know you posted a duplicate memorial. There was one posted for Shirley on the 2nd of October and then you posted yours several days later. A quick name search would avoid duplicate memorials. Have a great day and may the blessings of many families be upon you.
