A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS WHO SO POLITELY PUT UP WITH ALL MY ADDITIONAL INFO REQUESTS!|
I live just blocks from Greenwood Cemetery, Orlando, Orange County, FL. It's beautiful, and I'd be happy to take a photo if one is needed. I LOVE going to the cemetery!
I have been actively photographing and documenting the older sections of Greenwood. I am currently going through all their records to make sure we get everyone on findagrave.
I'll gladly transfer management of memorials upon request, no matter what your relation (unless they are my relatives - but I will transfer a relative to a direct descendant if I am not one). I create every memorial with the hope that their family will find them. Every transfer request I receive makes me know its worth it.
Please let me know if you find any errors or I've duplicated a memorial, I'll fix it! It's so important to have dates correct and names properly spelled - but we all make mistakes, and sometimes the markers are very difficult to read.
Feel free to use my photos for your personal genealogical project. My photos are of public places, and of no artistic (I can guarantee that!) merit. I don't believe I "own" a simple snapshot of someone else's grave marker. I volunteer here to SHARE and to make sure memorials are as accurate as possible.
My mother and I are researching our family who settled in Lee, Phillips and Monroe County, Arkansas.
In particular, we are desperately searching for parents and siblings of Thomas Trotter Bonner, who settled in Spring Creek, AR. He married Elizabeth Shackelford Bonner in 1834 in Marengo Co., AL.
Assisting my mom and the Annie H. Darracott UDC Chapter out of Lakeland, Polk Co, FL in the documentation of Confederate Veterans.
Completing FAG entries for Greenwood Cemetery using various sources including cemetery records and undertaker records. I'm only concentrating on the lettered, older sections.

Oh my... I believe you are right....SHE DID want to be found!! Thank you sooo much!
Thanks for this bit of info.
|Jean Peters||RE: McKelvey Family|
That would be great and I will see how she is related to Vida!
|Jean Peters||McKelvey Family|
Thank you so much for getting these pictures and posting so quickly. It is very much appreciated. Sam was my gg-uncle...they didn't have any children, so I felt it important to post.
|Marilyn Barksdale||RE: Spelling error|
Well, I'm still stumbling through the process and appreciate all of your advice and assistance.
|Marilyn Barksdale||Spelling error|
Thank you for picking up the spelling in the memorial for Anna Lee Barksdale. That memorial should have been eliminated by now.
Are you by chance a member of the Florida State Genealogical Society? I ask because they are interested in this type of work. I'm their newsletter editor and I know they would be most interested in following up on what you discover.

Hi Merf--Thanks so much for adding the funeral home documents and explaining the circumstances of Mary's post death move. I would never have known if you had not posted the docs and sent me the edit. I've cross referenced her current location with her previous location.

|Marilyn Barksdale||RE: Barksdales at Greenwood|
Thank you for your response and your advice. You're right. I should have checked to see if memorials had already been posted. Being new to adding memorials I realize I made mistakes. I appreciate you contributions to Find A Grave.
