Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has been an interest of mine for nearly 40 years. I became involved with Find A Grave several years back and have been entering names of my own family as well as those I find in old records, books or visits to cemeteries.

Some of the records are from the collection of a friend of mine who passed away. The records are old, they are sometimes hard to read. They have been transcribed from other records or from other peoples hand writing. In other words, there can always be mistakes. I am glad to make corrections. I am also glad to transfer memorials to family members. as long as they are not my own family.

George Washington Cockrain
Joe -
I've been helping on a puzzle for a woman who has a grandmother, Hazel Mattie Cockrain. Mattie married Lee Barry Markley. But - - Mattie's grandfather is the George Washington Cockrain 1813-1872, where you have posted this wonderful picture of the man. I am curious how you happened to have this picture.

We have exchanged McDaniel research in the past if you recall (I come from Marcus Lafayette McDaniel).

Bishop Joshua Soule
Thank you for adding the Engraving of the younger Bishop Joshua Soule. I had not thought to add more photos and was not familiar with that picture. I am a direct descendant of the Bishop.

Thank you very much for catching the typo in her year of death. I must have still had her marriage date on my mind. I'm indeed grateful!

You have submitted two corrections with conflicting information on the county that this man was born in. Please delete the incorrect one.

RE: Duplicate Memorials
Thank you Joe. I try not to duplicate memorials but sometimes it happens. I have removed the dups and posted the photos. Be sure and let me know if you run across other more of my dups. Diane

George Walls and family
Good Morning, I see you have photos of George, Jacob and Nathan Walls. May I use them on my family tree? The parents of Ellen Sandage, their mother, were Thomas Sandage and Margaret Lasher. Perhaps we are "kin"? Thanks. Pat Meadows.

Caroline Kelly Tait
Kelly-Stripling Cemetery, GA
Just wondering if this cemetery really exists and if there are headstones there or did you pull this stuff out of a book? Are you a Kelly descendant? Do you have headstone photos?

Holland Cemetery
Hello Arkansas Kin,

I was wondering if you live close to this cemetery? If so could you check the records for me to see if William H. "Ike" McDaniel is buried there. He died between 1875 & 1880. His brother Stephen is buried at this cemetery died in 1879 from the fever and I wonder if William may have died around the same year from the same thing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for posting the picture of Jim Leonard. He is my grandfather and I had not seen a picture of him as an older man, only one from about 1917 that I will post to Find A Grave soon. He was very handsome. Yes?

Hi, I linked Rosa to her parents at your request. If any of them are your family members and you'd like me to transfer their memorials to you, just let me know. Thanks!
