|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have lived most of my adulthood in Charlotte, North Carolina. Coincidentally I ended up right where my roots are on my father's side of the family. Genealogy is my passion and I never met a cemetery I didn't like. I'm also into historic preservation, both of buildings and the lives of people no longer with us.|
As the daughter of a general and great-granddaughter of 3 Confederate veterans, I like to note military records of veterans on their findagrave memorials.
I welcome corrections/additions, but will no longer link to a "burial unknown" person. I have found this leads to duplicates.
FAMILIES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE: Irwin, DeWeese, Blackwelder, Babcock, Taylor, Wilbon.
FAMILIES ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE: Bryan, Battle, Pope, Atkinson, Yarbrough, Chappell.

I would like to correct a description and would appreciate your help. I saw your name under the picture and that is why I am sending this message to you.
Math and Elizabeth were my parents. In the description, Mother's maiden name is Manford. Manford was her father, whose last name was Dees. Wesley's middle initial was P. for Petteway - not F.
Thank you your help.
|Joseph StCloud IRWIN||Susan Irwin Grills|
I did not know your father but as a retired
Navy Senior Chief in the SeaBees, I would be
honored to think we might be connected as
"IRWIN's" I was a "late" child with very few
living kinfolks and little known family history.
30 years ago I started with a Kansas City obit
of my g grandfather, Joseph Chambers Irwin, and
was hooked on genealogy. It was then I wished
I had asked my folks more about what they knew
from their past. Three years ago I discovered
Find A Grave and have been able to fill in several blanks
in the "Irwin Tree". What is really neat in this
quest is if you go back five generations, there
are 64 names in the tree, but only one is Irwin.
There are 63 other family names some known most
new and unknown. Bottom Line,I am proud to know
some history of your father and rest assured ,
we are related if you go back far enough. We
might even be cousins.-------joseph
Just wanted to thank you for all you do and wish you and your family a Happy Holiday!

Hi Susan, my name is Norma Jean Alexander Franssen. I go by Norma Franssen. I was trying to find a picture of my brothers headstone and there's not one. Hoping that you could help with getting one. He is at Sunset Memory Gardens. I saw that you were the one who did my parent's picture. His name is Lafayette Morrison Alexander Jr. His parents preceded him in death are Lafayette Sr. and Julia Viola Gladden Alexander. He had no children. All of his siblings are still living. I can give you their names if you would like to list them. You can email me at Juliav2328@att.net. Thank you, Norma Franssen

Susan: This obit in the local paper caught my eye. When I saw she was the daughter of a Walker from North Carolina, I had to check findagrave & lo & behold, her father is 1 of your posts. I assume you want to know. ALLEN WALKER

I am sending you a handmade award -
THE MOUNT ZION Mixup Award is awarded to Susan Grillis for her dedication on photographing, correcting, and researching those burials at Mount Zion Community / Methodist Cemeteries.
I know how hard you had to work on these and I was so happy every time I saw an edit or a photo. So glad for all you did so I made you an award! :-)

|Kristy Frazier||RE: Alice Cuthbertson Maye|
I have her original birth certificate. Her name on it is Alice Lawrence Cuthbertson, born to Arthur Vance Cuthbertson and Alice Lee Lawrence. My mother and her brothers also know this to be her name, and her sister, whom you have no record of on here, confirmed that as well. Bonnie has never been a part of her name to anyone's knowledge. Do you have a copy of the birth record that you are referencing? Thank you!
