Ex-paratrooper. Graduate Student. Wife. Mommy. |
I was working on my and my husband's family tree online and I had pretty much run into a dead end on my side when he showed me a headstone of one of my relatives in Alabama. I was so surprised and asked him where he got it. That was my introduction to findagrave.com.
Feel free to use any of my photos, but please include attribution.

The happiest people I know are people who don't even think about being happy. They just think about being good neighbors, good people. And then happiness sort of sneaks in the back window while they are busy doing good. -Rabbi Harold Kushner

|S Johnson||Andrew Hampton Gulledge|
I don't think this is Andrew's tombstone... the inscription reads "J. Hampton Gulledge". Andrew Hampton Gulledge was born in Aug 1830 and died in 1909. Please correct this memorial.

|Cheri Reeves||RE: Green Dixon Tyson|
I do not have any documents other than the census records, which all have him listed as being a decade older. If I could see the stone, I might be able to determine that the date was either an error actually on the stone or if perhaps the gentlemen who did the transcription mistook a 1 for a 2, which was common then and still is today. But alas, I am in CA. Hard to look at it from here. The only other thing I have is a Tyson Family History, which has a listing of all the Tysons who first settled in the colonies and their descendants. The problem is, this is technically a tertiary source, not official in any way. I would not want to change this without proof, but I also dislike people having incorrect information. I can send you copies of the census records but we both know how inaccurate they can be. Would it be possible to include a note that other sources show his birth year as 1814?
|Cheri Reeves||Green Dixon Tyson|
According to various census records, G D Tyson was born in 1813/1814. The info listed on you memorial for him lists 1824 as his birth year, although the day and month are correct according to various family trees. Do you have access to a record that states 1824 definitively?
