Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in genealogy research on my family tree for many years. I gathered a lot of information from visiting cemeteries and found Find A Grave a great place to share. I finally realized that I was visiting cemeteries multiple times because of new discoveries. That is when I decided to map entire cemeteries by photographing all readable markers and providing links to families if possible. The cemeteries that are listed below have been completely photographed and uploaded in 2011-2013.

Gambrell Bible
John,

Do you know who has the Matthew Gambrell Bible? He was the son of John Gambrell, b. 1755; d. 1834.

I am trying to find it to help someone with a SAR application. The DAR doesn't accept John Gambrell as a Patriot at this time and the Bible may help solve the issue.

Thank you,


Glenda Patton

Good afternoon. I volunteer at the Douglas County Museum of History and Art. We are currently attempting to fill in our information gaps on the mayors of the city of Douglasville. We would like to ask your permission to make copies of your photograph of Major Ernest Geer's tombstone #87803748. You may contact us here, or through douglascountymuseum@yahoo.com. Thank you for your time.

Hey John,

Thank you for all your help on our family lines. You have been a great help.

I wanted to ask you about Julian W. Walker #84431871, if he was Mary Louise Lollis Crawford's # 83016365 first husband? I had saw on Louie Jean Walker's #83028449 Certificate of Death that his fathers name was Julian W. Walker. Just wanted to see if this is the same Julian.

Thank you again for your help. You have worked so hard to make sure everything is correct.

Take care, Jerrie

Just a little curious...
I am just curious about the Lula Jane Kay on your records... do the names Ruby Bessie M. Kay sound familiar to you, or Edgar (possibly Sherman) Birdsong?
