Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy began as a child. We spent a lot of time with my Grandmother who maintained the cemetery plot that her son & parents were buried in. It is a rather large cemetery with several old graves with unreadable headstones. I've always wondered who they were, what they did, etc. So much history in graveyards certainly not to be feared like they show in horror films! Every month I usually list the birthdays for the people I have included in my virtual cemetery list. If you would be so kind as to drop by and leave a flower that would be wonderful and very much appreciated! God bless!

RE: Hello
That is so cool, I cannot wait to tell momma. She lives over in Bluffton/Hilton Head. It is the perfect distance - we can see each other whenever we want, and we are not so close as to run into each other all the time.

Hopefully, I will be able to take some time and run over to Meriwether soon - it is so different to look at something when the past has come alive.

I adored my Grandfather. Ella always scared me, but we would have Sunday dinner(lunch) with her and Bernice and I, to this day, love banana pudding. .

I am using ancestry as a place to "store" all my stuff that I find, maybe we can hook up and help each other where we are stumped.

Thanks for the note.

RE: Douglas Ingram
Yes, Douglas ".son". Was my grandfather. My mom is his daughter Peggy. I loved him dearly.

I want to take a trip to alvaton & walk around soon.

J.Butler is interesting. It is amazing the stuff out there that you can read. If you go to ancestry & see Aderhold1962 you will see my line & what I have found out. & what I am missing .

Then you've seen all the Wilkenings that are in Graceland Park. I did find a Rudolph J Wilkening.

RE: Christian Wilkening
Was able to finally get to Graceland Park cemetery and look to see if there were others with the last name Wilkening and I did find one more. I found Sophia Wilkening.

RE: J Butler
I doubt anyone knew about the interments. at the time of the death, the journey was arduous and if it did not kill you,the Indians often did.the 1 Us volunteers were sent (sacrificed) there to fight the Indians because the north was running out of men to send.

Also, at that tame, I doubt that someone who had sworn allegiance to the Us and actually fought for them before being sent out west would have been welcome in alvaton.

I was amazed that I was able to find him. I know it is him because the records match.

It would be nice though to have him in alvaton with the rest of the family - so many generation are in Alvaton Baptist Cemetery.

Jason Alan Benford
Hello! I was able to photograph Mr. Benford's marker for you. I know the area is muddy and I will go back re-photo when the weather clears up. Just a side note. The photo that Ms. Thacker put on the site is of the incorrect garden. Her photo is of the Garden of the Resurrection. Mr. Benford is buried in the Veterans Garden. Just wanted to let you know in case you were using the photo for something. Ms. Thacker usually takes great photos and is a great volunteer and she may not have realized she placed the incorrect picture. Have a great day!

Jesse Barber Gravesite
Cheryll - I did not see a grave with the name Jesse Barber. However, there is a relatively new grave with a memorial of flowers and small toys around it next to some Barbers. If you think that memorial might be it, I can send you the picture I took for you to decide if you want it. Just message me back. Maggie Clarke
