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.

David Jackson Roland
Are you by any chance related to the Rolands? I noticed that the memorial mentioned his parents' names and wondered how you found the name David. I have been looking for information on Handy Roland for years. i am a direct descendant.

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.

You've put in a request at Calvary in Cleveland. I'm starting to plan a trip there in the spring or late winter. With 400,000 burials and 300 acres, if you can obtain plot location AND a plot map from the office (unless it's posted here: I can try to take the photo when I go in the spring. Phone number is: (216) 641-7575

You can try to tell them you'll be visiting when they're closed, etc. I know one person who they mailed a plot map to. If you get one let me know and I'll give you my e-mail address. Without this info you're sadly unlikely to get it filled. If I can get info for many it will be worth the 25 minute trip to try to cut down the 759 requests.

Oak Grove Cemetary

I looked around at the cemetary for your 4 photo requests, but no joy. (3 of them Micklers plus one other).

I checked with the caretaker of the cemetary, and his "smart book" has no record of the four names you have listed.

Also, many of the graves are very old and weathered, and the labels are illegible.

If you have any other clues, please advise and I'll re-engage. Perhaps there are some other families to whom your interests are related?

Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

Go Navy!
