Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for the last fifteen years. The main names I am researching are Abernathy, Coley, Higgins, Howell, Knight, Ledford, Roach, Moss, Whitmore, and Williams.

My other hobby is photography. I take photos of everything from cemeteries to concerts.

If you see any of my photos that are very tiny (ie. the size of a postage stamp), please let me know. Several years ago, the Find A Grave website had a weird glitch that made dozens and dozens of my photos the size of a thumbnail pic. I did not upload these tiny pictures. If you will let me know, I can hopefully replace them with a normal size picture.

Please note that I don't have editorial control over memorials that are listed as famous. If changes or corrections need to be made, please contact the Find A Grave admins.

I have created a website dedicated to my family cemetery, the Old Macedonia Cemetery of Bartow County. You can find it by following the link below.

And please be aware that just because I have taken a cemetery photo, it does not mean that I operate the cemetery or have anything to do with the cemetery. I only took a photograph.

Any photos that were taken by me may be used on genealogy websites such as You have my permission. All I ask is that I am given photography credit.

Find A Grave Memorial# 8341620
A brief mention of the passing of Col. W. M. Tate on "Wednesday" appears in the central news column of page 1 of the North Georgia Citizen, on Thursday, 25 Feb. 1897. (accessed 13 Jan. 2017).

Memorial 10343058
Hi, You have a memorial: 10343058. I inadvertently created a duplicate memorial, Find A Grave Memorial# 174402288. The lady's name was different in census, etc., and so I did not find your page when I searched. Someone has recently pointed out my error and led me to your memorial. The problem is, we now have a lot of relationship links to this new memorial, and some of the links originate in memorials maintained by other people (will take some time to request edits). I hate to ask--would you be willing to delete this memorial, even though it was first? I would be willing to transfer my memorial to you, or make some other trade-off...

The Masters Family
I am still researching the Hendricks line and came upon an interesting find. John Calhoun Masters born 1839 died 14 March 1933 and buried at Saluda Hill in Pickens has a death certificate at Ancestry #004200. In this death certificate as mention in his obit on his findagrave page, his daughter Margaret Thomas was the informant on the certificate. On that certificate it mentions parents of John Calhoun as John Masters and Edith Sawyers. On the 1850 S.C. Census John C is found living with his parents John Masters 70y and Edy 50y with siblings Susan 23y, Robert 18y and John C 8y. I cannot find them further but will keep searching. You have John Calhoun listed with the William M Masters and Temperance Cassell but in looking at their census record, the only son they had was John H who was born 1836 and died 1880 and married Frances "Fanny" Sutherland. John H is buried at Saluda Hill in Easley. I don't believe John Calhoun is the son of William and Temperance. I'll let you check it out and see what you think. (John Calhoun's son James Madison married Margaret Elizabeth McJunkin, whose mother was a Hendricks)

Margaret Borthwick Elder
I noticed there are 2 memorials on this woman. Yours was made Jan. 21, 2007, #17616367. The other was Margaret Elder by Barry White done 5/27,2007 # 19558918. I believe yours had the correct dates. Maybe you can correct this. I'll contact Barry. Thanks.

Please is there someone who can clean this site for me in the spring? I've been working on my ancestry site, and found this line. But, am saddened by the state of this marker, and the man whose life is represented by this marker. I live in Iowa, and will never be able to make it there. Thank you.

RE: Moses
There were several of my family members looking for this grave and we scanned this cemetery thoroughly but never found it. I think it was covered so extensively with black mold that it was not seen by any of us. You took the photo in 2003 and that was 13y ago so the weather has had a lot of time to make a mess of it. Oh, well, I enjoyed scanning all the graves of my Hendricks family and others that we found too. Thanks for your response.

Moses "Corn" Hendricks
I was recently down (I live in MN) in South Carolina and visited the Oolenoy Cemetery. We (my family) tried to find the memorial stone that you have pictured at Oolenoy Cemetery but we could not find it. We thought it has weathered so badly we missed it. could you tell me where it is in the cemetery? Moses is my 4 Maternal great-grandfather. Thanks for your help.
