Good afternoon JoLinn!
Thank you so much for the memorial transfers, and all the effort you have put into transcribing the Gillette Cemetery and adding bio information to the memorials! I cannot tell you how grateful I am for the bios. They have helped piece together family links in several instances where I could not seem to locate connections through online record searches. I found a copy of Mary I Robertson's will on Ancestry, and have been using the beneficiary names, along with your bios and online records to reconstruct the families of her children. I am presently working on the Hawkins/Williams connection.
Thanks for the tip about the Gillette Cemetery book. I was under the impression that it was not for sale any longer, but I found it online, so I will be ordering a copy. I have a copy of The Singing River by Joe Warner, and have utilized it for research on my direct Williams, Rye, and Corbitt ancestral line.
Thanks again!!

Hi JoLinn,
I have noticed during my research that you maintain several memorials of persons buried in the Gillette Cemetery, and have added biographic info to them.
My 3rd great grandparents were Mary Isabella Williams Robertson & James Greene Williams, I am curious to know if you are related to them.
I have been trying to sort out all of the Williamses, and this website has been a great resource aid. I only had photos that were given to me by my grandmother,with names & birthdates written on the back, when I started, so it has been a long and confusing journey.
My email address is, if you wish to use it to contact me.
Thanks so much!
