|Bio and Links|
I was born Elizabeth Kate Orr (always gone by Kate) to Webster Thaxton (Web) and Josephine Marie Wilson Orr in Rayle, Georgia. I would say that the majority of my family are from Wilkes and Oglethorpe County, Georgia. I no longer live in Rayle, Georgia, but Roswell, Georgia with my husband, Clay, and our two dogs. The house where I grew up is still in my family and I try to get down there every few months to visits cousins, do research, etc. I started doing genealogy research where my mother left off (she and my father are both deceased). She had researched both her and my father's direct lines fairly far back and she had some information on the siblings of my direct ancestors, but I wanted to learn more so I've been collecting more information on both my direct and indirect ancestors. Who they were, what they did, what they looked like, where they are buried. So most of the cemeteries I have entered into Find A Grave are those I have gone to in search of my ancestors. I'll often take a picture of the gravestone, enter it into my Family Tree Maker and figure out the connection. Which is why when I upload the information to Find A Grave, people may wonder why only pictures of select graves were taken and not all of them, also why everyone buried in the cemetery is not listed. There are times when others are owners of information they submit, I try to only ask for my direct ancestors to be transferred to me, but there are also times when I ask for my aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. to be transferred to me. Many times people enter information into Find A Grave from books, etc. and once they've entered the information they no longer really maintain the record, how could they, they don't even know the person. Even if I've never met the person, I know them from my parents research or from the records they saved, etc. So I really appreciate it when these records get transferred to me.|

Kate, could you please tell me if the Joseph Augustus Thaxton buried in the Maxeys Sunset Cemetery, Memorial # 61255029 was the son of Augustus Lee Thaxton and Mary Jane West Thaxton? My grandmother was Evye Irene Thaxton, granddaughter of Yelverton Thaxton, Jr. I realize this is not my direct line but I am also doing some research on extended family. My email address is email@example.com.
|Marjorie Bracey Jones||Locating my Grandparents Graves|
I am Marjorie Bracey Jones. My paternal grandparents are buried in the Sharon Methodist Church Cemetery. Frank P Bracey and Kitty Pate Bracey. My Uncle James Bracey may be there as well. I did not see their names listed but I a pretty sure they are there. I have an obituary from my grandfather and it says he was buried there in October of 1957. Do not know about my grandmother.
Can you help me in anyway?
Thanks and God Bless
Marjorie Bracey Jones

Hi Kate - just a note here on the Stephen Arnold family cemetery in Oglethorpe County (you posted a picture of the metal "please respect" sign, that I erected a few years ago). I have never found Stephen Arnold with any middle name or initial - please notify me if you know of any such record and I'll check on that; if not, would you please change this entry. "Chesley" Arnold, of course, was a separate person. I can send you my file on Stephen, which includes every piece of documentation I've been able to find on him; he's my direct ancestor. And yes, you have Susannah correctly as Susannah (Arnold) Arnold - her maiden name was Arnold - she & Stephen were cousins, md. in 1795 Oglethorpe Co. per record. On we go. Ted Brooke, Cumming, GA.

Thank you for pointing this out to me, I'm going to add obit to his and delete mine.
|Loneta Boyer||Thank you|
Thank you for looking for the grave of Susannah Arnold. I was afraid that there were no stones, and I do appreciate the effort you took to find out. Thank you for your effort, it is much appreciated. Loneta Boyer

Kate, I am researching Troutdale, VA and in connection with that effort researching people who were born/died there. Howard Blair was born near Troutdale, VA. I am interested in communicating about him off line. He apparently was one of the first two graduates from the school in Troutdale. I am interested in knowing if he graduated from Virginia Tech and learning something of his professional life.
From my info the parents that you have listed are actually his uncle and aunt. I think that some of the siblings are also incorrect. I would be happy to provide some details that would allow you to correct this info.
