I started manually working on my genealogy around 1990 scraping together pieces of paper that my mother had written tidbits on, then talking to my great-aunt, aunts and uncles to get more info. Once I was able to electronically compile my genealogy it felt like starting over but my tree has branched enormously since then. I have walked a few cemeteries dragging my husband along who has graciously help hunt for tombstones. I have been interested in cemeteries since my youth. The age of modern technology has help tremendously in having instant photos. I am now retired and spend tons of time cleaning up my tree. I get a little obsessed wanting it to be as accurate as possible. We have 16 grandchildren and one great-grandchild...our house is full on special gatherings. I truly appreciate everyone who is involved in genealogy and thank you in advance for all that you have to offer.|

|DON SHARP||Romie Ima Davis|
I've located Romie: she is buried with her husband Henry Sterling Jones at Alta Vista Cemetery, Hall County, GA. I've already updated her memorial and requested a link to her family. Her memorial number is 68534196.
Hope this is of help.
|DON SHARP||Davis family|
You are correct Corrine is still alive in Florida.
Romie was married to Sterling Jones and they are buried in north Georgia. I contacted a niece of Romie and Corrine and she has put me in touch with another person. I am trying to find some more info for you and will keep you updated. Hope this helps!
|Karin Rock||Marilla Acton|
I'll run back over there tomorrow and see if Marilla is there. If there are any other stones not photographed, I'll get them for you. The cemetery also looks quite a bit different that previous photos. I'll take a photo of that as well.
|JDH||Crawfords in Orlando|
Are the Crawfords (Abbott Taylor Crawford, wife, son) in Greenwood Cemetery, Orlando, part of your family? If so, I will gladly transfer.
Also... it NEVER hurts to be obsessed/accurate as possible (in other words VERY CAREFUL) when it comes to genealogy, finding and interpreting information. I wish everyone was.

I grew up with Pete & Melba Davis' kids. Their 2 youngest children were twins, Jeff & Janet. I went all the way thru school with them. Melba's mother was Ella Spence Shadrix. She & my great grandmother, Ida Spence Sharp, were first cousins...just a little family trivia....Good luch with Pets's sisters.
|Sandra Brookshire Behne||RE: Davis tombstone|
Hope it is ok. Sometimes the engraving blends in too well with the stone itself, no matter what the weather conditions are.
|Sandra Brookshire Behne||Davis headstone|
The way the headstone is carved, you can not read the engraving. I went back out a second time and used chalk to highlight the letters so you can see them in the photo. I have run across several that way, difficult to read and impossible in a photo without having done somthing to the stone itself. Hope this one is more to your liking.

I will retake the photo as per your request. Sometimes the West Texas sun does not cooperate in the summer and we do what we can to make it work.
|Tom Smith||RE: Unity Cemetery|
I photographed all the Caswell graves, including adding two that were not previously listed.
