Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy exploring old cemeteries. There is a lot of history in them to be shared. My Family research is in the Christie, Wheeler, Ogburn, Campbell, and Milburn lines. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and know the importance of geneaology work and temple work for our kindred dead. I hope that some of the graves I transcribe will assist someone that is doing family history research.If I made errors, please let me know and I will correct them. Some of the older stones are deteriorated and hard to read.I am transcribing cemeteries in Columbia, Union, Bradford and Hamilton Counties , Florida. If you are looking for a grave and know where the interment occurred, let me know and I will try to locate it for you.

Hi There!

I am a photographer and have recently added a photo for this child in Wellborn, Florida.

There is a duplicate memorial for the child which contains the obituary showing the parents. This particular memorial you have has the wrong parents linked. I have submitted edits to correct the error and have the obituary for you to add here:

from Fri 29 Nov 1923 Jacksonville FL Times Union and FL death record: Cecil Williams the son of A D and Minnie Godbold Williams, died in Jacksonville at 2:30pm the parents having brought the child here for special treatment. The body was prepared for shipment and will be taken this morning to Wellborn, accompanied by the bereaved parents. Funeral services in the afternoon from their residence and the interment will be in the family plot.

Note: From index cards of obits, marriages, burials, family info collected by ES FHC in Jacksonville FL

Thank you for your contributions!

I too am LDS - so yes I do know the importance of our research.

James Edward Thigpin was the first husband of my half Aunt Edna Maxine Thigpin # 22269086.

They had been divorced since Oct 1967.

I am wondering if you wanted to attach her as another spouse.

If you are not directly related I would like to request a transfer of this grave.

Thank you in advance

I wanted to say thank you for the research on Edgar W Miller. This will really help connect lots of our Knowles family that married into the Miller family. Thanks again.

Robert Christie
Hello, Do you have the 1829 Estate Record of Robert Christie. Robert Christie is believed to be father of Rebecca who married Samuel Crow. Information that came to me from a lady, now deceased, in Lauderdale Co., Alabama, about this estate record. She found mention of the record in a library.
Rebecca (Christie?) Crow is believed to be born about 1780's in the Edgefield Dist., SC and died 26 Dec 1869 in Lauderdale Co., Ala. Her memorial is on Find A Grave.
Any help you can provide about this estate record will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and God Bless-Dwight Crowe

William Miles Hunter, jr at Swift Creek Cemetery
Hi! I am trying to prove a Florida Pioneer through my Allison, Cheshire and Hunter ancestors in Hamilton Co, FL. I've found the grave of William Miles Hunter, jr at Swift Creek Cemetery. I cannot find the grave of his first wife, Rachel Knight Hunter, though local histories, etc. say she is buried next to William. Do you happen to know where Rachel is buried?
Your work has been invaluable to me in finding my ancestors.

Thank you!
