Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thanks to Bentley Fallis for the following info for the unmarked graves in Hillview East:

During the great flu epidemic of 1918 my dad was all of twelve years old and he said that CW Coleman , who wrote the county history, was a scout leader and a school official got a group of scouts together to dig graves as there were so many dying and having to be buried hastily during the epidemic. Maybe the city kept a record. In the old days the lots were sold and there is an actual deed recorded in the Troup county courthouse. I know as I have the deed from my grandparents lot from October 1923.
They also helped during the night that the tornado literally (1920)removed houses in the SW end of Callaway village I believe the end of Stonewall and Troup streets. Anyway the only light they had searching for people was Mr. Coleman's car which my dad learned to drive that night at 14 years old. He also had to go get gas and kerosene to help out.

***************************

There are over 400 "unknown" in the Hilview East also known as Hillview Annex Cemetery in LaGrange, Georgia, in the Pauper Section.. If you know who any of them are, please contact me. Of the 19 that have been identified by family and now have a marker with name and dates, the death year ranges between 1900 and 1949.

If you have a loved one that died in LaGrange Georgia or Troup County Georgia, and you have not found their grave, consider that they may be here.

I would appreciate it if you could leave a few flowers on their memorials. They are listed as Pauper Unknown and have the number that is on their marker.

********************
Those we Love remain with us,
for Love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade, because a loved one is gone.
Those we Love can never be, more than a thought apart.
For as long as there is a memory, they’ll live on in our heart.

I found an insert in an newspaper i believe it to be to the Grave#112367620 and a possibility that Charles is also buried there. but i didn't want to add it without your approval.
1885 DOUBLE HOMICIDE IN HEARD COUNTY

A letter from the Texas district of the western part of Heard county says: "
Last Friday evening, John and Charles James, who were drinking and playing cards, fell out about the game. In the difficulty which ensued, John raised his shot gun which was loaded with buckshot and discharged the load into Charles' abdomen producing a wound very likely to cause his death. As Charles fell, he shot with a pistol, killing John instantly, the ball taking effect near the heart. John James was Charles James' uncle and the former was forty
years of age, the latter thirty years of age. Both leave a wife and children.
