Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Tifton, GA. I'm retired from the US Army and all of my other side jobs, too; however, I do stay busy doing all of my wife's "honey-do's", Civil War relic hunting, family genealogy research, and taking photos of cemeteries and graves for family and friends on

I have been researching all sides of my family ancestors; Benefield's of south Georgia, Eunice's of south Georgia, Willis' of south Georgia, Lane's of south Georgia and Virginia, and Layne's of Okalahoma and Virginia.

Also, my wife and I have been researching her side of the family for her and her sons to include the Miles-Malanowksi family in Ohio & Europe, and the Williams-Middleton-Lane families of middle and southwest Georgia.

If you have any links and/or suggestions on what I have posted, please let me know how I can help.

RE: Photo of Helen Taylor Stowers Gravesite
Hello Tom,
You are welcome for the photo. I am glad I could help. Are you a relative of Mrs. Stowers?

1st Lt. James Lane
Will you add Willie Edwin Lane, my grandfather, to the children of 1st Lt James Lane, buried at Rawls Cemetery, Colquitt, GA?

Willie was the one child who lived. His mother was Martha Hornsby, the 2nd wife of James Lane.

For info look up Willie Edwin Lane on findagrave.

Charles Wahlmann
I've transferred the Charles Wahlmann memorial to you. I'm not related to him, so if you would like to keep permanent ownership of the memorial, you may.

Cleveland Calvary Request
Just a friendly mid June reminder that we need plot info to fill your Cleveland Calvary request(s). We have less than 500 requests left but plot info for only 6% of those, having already filled the rest with plot info. We can't ask for plot info for more than 3 requests per week. Please call (216) 641-7575 and obtain plot info. We'd really appreciate it and will fill your request(s) soon after getting plot info. Thank you!

**I know I've filled Hudak requests for you this past spring. If I've messed up and should have plot info for your last request please let me know.
Added by runner9 on Jun 14, 2013 4:52 PM
Not trying to nag, just FYI that we've cleared over 200 requests this spring and now have 626 requests—fewer than there were in June, 2012. We'd be happy to clear your request(s) but some/all do not have plot information. Please call (216) 641-7575 and obtain plot information. We most likely already have a plot map but will let you know once we have plot info if we also need a map. Thanks!

RE: John Hudak Photos
You're welcome. Again, would be happy to take the Joseph Hudak photo later this week if there's plot info posted.
Added by runner9 on Apr 02, 2013 10:22 AM
Please put in a request for Joseph Hudak and I'll upload the photo and closeup to the memorial.
