An Etheridge Son
I was just sent a copy of a death certificate for John Etheridge, son of Joel and Emily Rice (this is stated on the certificate). So I created a memorial for him in the Underwood Cemetery (aka Bethel Cemetery), Rockdale County, GA. So another son is found. Strangely enough, I lived for over 18 years on the West end of Bethel Road, Rockdale County and never knew I had relatives at Bethel Christian Church. Small world.

RE: Two Emily's
Thanks, Joy. It was very confusing at first, but with the help of another Rice family member, I believe we all have the issue resolved. Emily Rice is a sister to my g, g grandmother, Mary Rice. So that's how I became involved. I have enjoyed this journey of searching for my ancestors and have met the most amazing folks like you. Thanks so much for your help. Yesterday, I found two of Emily's brothers and am looking for Margaret Rice who married Charles Etheridge, Joel's brother. And in this process of searching I found yet another CSA soldier that I am related to - now that makes 40!! Take care and thanks for all you do on Find A Grave. Joyce

RE: Martin VanBuren Bagwell
Thanks Joy I am not related just researching the men of 16th Georgia Vol Infantry and trying to document their story. Whether you agree with the cause or not, you have to applaud their courage and commitment. They were certainly a brave bunch of men! The places where the 16th Regiment fought seem to be all the worst. My husband and I went last April and followed their path - partially at least - Cramptons Gap where 500 Confederates (including the 16th Georgia) tried to defend against the approach of 13,000 union soldiers; the Bloody Lane at Antietam; the Sunken Road at Fredericksburg; the Wheatfield and the Peach Orchard at Gettysburg; Fort Sanders at Knoxville; the Wilderness and Spotsylvania....Its amazing that any of them returned home. Private Bagwell was orphaned, moved off to Georgia, joined up ...and lived to tell the tale. Hats off to him!

RE: Lamar Hudson
Thanks for the information. I'm trying to document the Hillcrest Cemetery by taking photos. Doing the same thing as you are. Good hunting.

Lamar Hudson
You have sent a request to connect Lamar to his parents. I have a question. There is a Peter R. Hudson buried next to Lamar and his wife. Do you know if that is their son? Also I am not related at all, if you are and would like a transfer please let me know and I will be happy to do so.

RE: Anna Brown
Joy, I didn't find the Bethlehem Baptist Church cemetery listed and it is the large "city" cemetery here with a lot of old graves. I probably didn't look hard enough. There were 3 or 4 people listed in our family grave yard that were in the "wrong" place. I've sent corrections on those also.
