RE: Louis R Sumner, Sr Hello Frank, hope this finds you well. Wanted to let you know that I added all that I could find on my father to Memorial# 44715345 Louis Richard Sumner Sr. I put notes under the copied page of the info included on his Army papers. Thank you for all of your help. Gwen
RE: Gravley cemetery, georgia Morning Frank, Nice surprise hearing from U. Yes, the access thru the horse farm is still there, traversing it was easy, but we didn't get a chance to travel it on the first of three trips we made out there. Luckily for me, the lady I went to visit lived only 5 miles from the cemetery, what a coincidence. We did a property tax search to see who owned the land, and the house in the background foto, and believe it or now, she knew him. So, she called, He met us at his entrance on hwy 53 and gave us a guided tour of his property and cemetery. He was quite happy that someone was there to film and log in the tombstones, so all went well. First day, meet & greet. Second day, inventory and clean Third day, photograph all that could be read (it rained heavy before we got there, I slid off the old road into a ditch, a vehicle has more power pulling than pushing so by adjusting my steering angle and hitting reverse, we got out ok) Can U imagine trying to get AAA out there, Ha !!! Anyway, project complete and I couldn't have done it without your input, so if U ever need a favor in my area of the country, let me know and I'll do what I can. Thanks Again, James Coston
Gravley cemetery, georgia Evening Frank, Just wanted ya to know that I finally made it to Georgia, and, with your directions, I located the cemetery and was able to post fotos of the markers, save 2. I couldn't have done it without your help. I'm passing this info along in case U had other interests there that weren't located, as we also added 3 markers that were not posted previously. Again, thanks for the help. Later, James Coston
Gravley Cemetery, Ga. Mr. Blair, Assuming the bio foto is U, that means ex-navy, as was I, submarine service then surface craft. Thank U for your service. = = = = I read a book about the exploits of the Gravleys during the Civil War and the activies at the local church and afterwards, I find the events of interest and wish to visit the cemetery where some of the participants are buried. My wife and I have friends from Texas that live in the Hinton area that we go visit October every other year or so and that time is coming up. I noticed that it was U that posted the fotos but there are no directions, the cemetery "appears" to be outside the property fence of the house in the background. My question, can U provide me with driving instructions from Hinton and is the cemetery accessable to the public if I show up there. Later, James Coston
RE: Clyde Brumbelow Thanks for your help. I live in Ala and hope to come to the Polk and Floyd co area to look for my ancestors. Do you happen to know if the libraries have good genealogy records or if the court house has any old records... around 1870's. My 3x great grand father and my 2x great grand mother were last known to live in Cave Springs area of Floyd Co. GA in 1870. His wife is in Town, Haralson, Georgia by 1880, and Her husband is in Cherokee Co. AL by 1880. So there appears to be a large area to where they might be. As best we know they would have spelt their names Brumbeloe. I have found multiple ways to spell this name and still be connected. That is why I was checking out Clyde Brumbelow. My 3x great grand father was James P Brumbeloe, and my 2x great grand mother was Elizabeth Frances Malinda Carlton Brumbeloe. Her parents are Henry and Elizabeth(Rice) Carlton and are buried in the Paulding Co area. A lot of this family only has sandstones with names scratched into them, so I'm not sure that find a grave will help me find them, but thought I'd might find an area to start. Thanks again for your help!
Clyde Brumbelow Did not find your problem to my photo request until just now. Thanks for your time and help. The problem says he is in the Flint Hill Baptist church cemetery in Floyd Co. I can not find another Flint cemetery in Floyd Co. His obit posted on his memorial says Flint Hill cemetery in Aragon. I will assume he is not if Floyd but in Aragon. Thanks for your time and help.
