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.

Thank you !! The Annie Chapman uphill from this lot has a married last name. I didn't think about make a note to remember it. I wish I had but thought it was weird both stones had the same name. I apologize for generating difficulties for you.

Millie Yarbrough 137711555
Hello again,
Lets leave this memorial number with Millie "Blair" Yarbrough name as it is. I already have links to her husband and child.
Please make a new record for "Annie Chapman" who belongs to the stone. Let me know what the record number is and I can upload my photo to it and delete from Millie's.
Also, as a FYI on the uphill side of this Lot is another Annie Chapman on a large stone. This little stone is cockeyed on the lot and I really wonder if it doesn't belong somewhere else.
Thanks, Leah

RE: Memorial# 137711555 Millie Yarbrough
Thank you very much! I am looking at prices to add small granite markers for them. I am grateful for your help in locating them.

Memorial# 137711555 Millie Yarbrough
Hello! I can admire your massive undertaking of photographing Oakland Cemetery. Were out there today looking for Millie Yarbrough and found the stone that you captured. It was raining and I scrubbed it with a brush and found that it has "In Memory of Annie Chapman" or something similar. I can almost guess that Millie and her daughter Polly are in unmarked graves. Please check if Annie or an infant of hers belongs to this stone. I have the photo that I will upload to Millie's record for you to see. Please edit as you wish. BTW, Millie is sister to my GGG-Grandfather.

Did you see the photo? Is there any doubt that George is the correct name?

Sarah Claire Hunnicutt
Thanks for the information. Since Ruth de Treville Hunnicutt's grave stone says that she was the wife of LL, do you know if Sarah Claire Ridley was an earlier or later wife? Luther and Ruth are buried next to each other, and Sarah Frances is in the same lot. I currently have Sarah Frances linked to LL and Ruth. Do you know what might have happened to Sarah Claire? Any help is welcome.

Linda,
Calvin Welborn Hunnicutt was married to Letitia Ann Payne. Their son, Luther Love Hunnicutt, Sr was married to Ruth deTreville.

Their son, Luther Love Hunnicutt, Jr was married to Sarah Claire Ridley. Sarah Frances Hunnicutt is their daughter. Sarah Frances should be linked to LL Jr and Sarah Claire.

I have no direct evidence for Sarah Claire Ridley Hunnicutt. I found a family tree online that said she died Jul 21 1936 which fits other information and that she is buried at Westview Cemetery. There are other Ridley's buried there but she is not listed in Findagrave. Her husband LLH Jr died in 1951 but I cannot find any reference to his burial.

This investigation of the Hunnicutt's started out after seeing a picture of their home. I just wondered who CW Hunnicutt was. From that, I learned of their connections to the Venable, Austell, and Benjamin Hill families also buried at Oakland. I found a connection to the Troutman family. I found connections to my wife's family that I was not aware of.

These people were part of the tremendous rebuilding of Atlanta in the Reconstruction and post-Reconstruction period.

Thanks...
Todd

Sarah Frances Hunnicutt
Hello,
I may have a little help with your record for Sarah Francis Hunnicutt at Oakland Cemetery. The Hunnicutt family had a beautiful home on Spring St that is no longer there. Calvin Wellborn Hunnicutt had several children, one was Luther Love Hunnicutt, Sr. He was married to Ruth deTreville. They had a son, Luther Love Hunnicutt, Jr.

Luther Love Hunnicutt, Jr was married to Sarah Clare Ridley. Sarah Francis Hunnicutt would be their infant daughter.

Thanks...
Todd

Slater
Hey Linda, Hope you are well. If I was younger, I might be able to figure all these mysteries out before it's my time. There is a J.G. Slater listed in the Alabama Civil War Service Database buried at Oakland. I believe he is listed as J.G. in the cemetery book. There is no J.G. on a roster of the 23rd Alabama. There is a J.J. listed in the Alabama Database and on a roster of Company K. There is no J.M. in the database and J.J. is the only Slater on the roster. To make matters worse, the Alabama Database has a J.J. Slaters listed in Company K and buried at Bethel Confederate Cemetery in Knoxville. Their records list a J.T. "STATERS" of Company K buried April 11,1862. I don't know what to do. I may change my memorial to J.M. and chalk the rest of it up to a bad dream. Tell me what you think I should do, if you have any idea. Thanks, Hutch.
