Bio and Links
Bio Photo I prefer to limit transfers to established, regular contributors to Find a Grave who demonstrate an understanding of the FAQs and purpose of the site. Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related. If you are brand new here, welcome! Folks come and go often, and I like to make sure you're going to stick around and contribute regularly before I transfer. You may want to read the "help with Find a Grave" section to understand the purpose of the site.

I volunteer at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, and am working on photo-documenting the whole cemetery. At this point, I prefer not to transfer memorials for this cemetery (other than mandatory transfers, of course) because my research is ongoing. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

NOTE: Obituaries are a wonderful source of information, but findagrave has rules about how they may be used. You can always glean facts from them for the bio. If they are out of copyright, or if you hold the copyright, you can transcribe them. Regardless of who has the copyright, you are not supposed to post them as a photograph - regardless of whether you scanned it, took a screen shot, or downloaded it from another website. Please feel free to send me obit text via the edit function, and I will use the info to add to the bio. Obits posted as photos will be removed, and it just ends up wasting your time.

Memorial# 99082193
Re: Sylvia Whitfield. I've done further research and determined that she was probably born in GA (not VA) as you already had. I traced her family through her son John and found them living in Fulton County, GA in 1870, but her name was listed as Susan and her birthplace GA. My apologies for asking you to change something that was already correct. Much praise to you for all of your work on Oakland Cemetery.

Oh dear sorry for the BIG oops. Back to the books at the historical society office to get correct info.

Again I'm so-o-o sorry

RE: Newsome
That is kind of you but not necessary. Thanks!

I think you may be right. I went ahead and deleted James. Thanks

Each memorial that I created was from a headstone. Not sure why I didn't add a photo. There were 5 days between the creation of James and Jacob. I will try to go through my files and see if I can find James' photo.

RE: Clarence Cobleigh
Great catch.....

I must have been half asleep when I did that. You are correct Nelson E Cobleigh and Mollie Vinson Cobleigh are indeed his paternal grandparents.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Joseph Hirsch at Rosehill
He has a stone in the family plot. Whether he lies beneath it, the cemetery records might say. My entry is from the indication, from the marker. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.

Teresa Reilly
Ferree Cemetery Coraopolis
My name is Teresa and I am writing about the Ferree family located in Coraopolis. I have a 17 year old Boy Scout doing an Eagle Scout project in the Historic Ferree Cemetery in Coraopolis. The stones are in bad shape especially the one for Alice Ferree. He is going to have the stones repaired as well as it can be done. We are doing research on the family as well. Are you related to Alice Ferree/Jacob Ferree? We are trying to gather as much info as possible to present to the community and the Ferree Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution at the completion of his project. Any information that you can share would be welcomed.

Your photos are fabulous! May I ask what kind of camera you use?
