Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Franklin County, Georgia, 14 June 1940. I became interested in genealogy through my sister, Jane Carson Milam. After her death I picked up where she left off on our family genealogy. After I retired and bought a computer, I realized how much more of the past can now be accessed through the web.

Currently I am President of the "Hebron Presbyterian Church Historical Society" through Aug. 2, 2015 and also Vice President of the "Franklin County Historical Society". I am now involved in placing memorials on "Find A Grave". If I can aid anyone in finding ancestors in this area I will be happy to help. Please abide by the "Find A Grave" rules and FAQ section. Adding a name just to see it in print is of no value to me or other researchers. Also, please do the "Family Links" whenever you add a memorial.

Note to funeral home directors: Please add birthdates to published funeral announcements. This adds accuracy to the information sought by researchers.

Note to parents of small children: Based on a recent news item, please discourage children from playing on or near ancient cemetery monuments which can tip over with fatal results.

Note to everyone: Remember the "magic" words from childhood..."Please" and "thank you". Use them often.

"Some of the first settlers in York County, SC were Crockets, CARSONS, Erwins, Flemings, Martins, and Neelys. These early settlers were remarkable for their self reliance, sturdiness and intelligence. They were a strong, stern people, simple in their habits, God-fearing in their practices, upright in all their dealings, fearless advocates of the right and undying lovers of their country." ("A City Without Cobwebs" - Rock Hill, SC - Brown)

"Let this be recorded for a generation to come,..." Psalms 102:18a

Dailey Family Cemetery
Good morning, I cam across the Dailey Family Cemetery in Franklin County, GA and wonder what those two funeral home markers have on them, do they match the names of the persons on the one stone?

Here's the Dailey Family Cemetery location:
Cedar Ridge Road
Ashland (Franklin County)
Franklin County
Georgia USA
Postal Code: 30530 Comm

Your transfer request falls outside the site's guidelines. If you are not familiar with these, please read the Frequently Asked Questions (sometimes referred to as Help With Find A Grave) for more information.
I am always happy to correct, edit, add to or link any memorial I manage, and I am looking forward to hearing from you to make this a better memorial. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to submit what you would like included.

Looking much forward to adding the extensive additions/changes you have that are required when requesting a transfer.
Have you read what we refer to as "the transfer guideline"? If not, click here. It's not really a "guideline", it's a rule. Those relationships listed in the second item are mandatory transfers but please note having extensive changes is twice mentioned as a prerequisite. In another area of the Forums, site admin Mark recently posted
As per cemetery location, there is a photo of the marker which proves the cemetery is correct

Grey Hill Cemetery
I have been taking pictures of tombstones at Grey Hill Cemetery in Commerce. I noticed that you have put in a lot of names (thanks for that!); I assume from the Jackson County Cemetery Book. Several pictures I have posted included death dates that must not have been in the book. Let me know how I can help with this.
Thanks for all your hard work!
