Leatier R. Griner
Hi. You manage/photographed memorial for Leatie R. Griner at Empire Primative Baptist. I believe that she is my great grandmother who died from complications of childbirth and the daughter of JD and Rachel Bostick. Rachel raised my grandmother Ola Griner after her mother's death. Might you have any other knowledge of the family? Ola married James Glen Rampey and had one child, my mother Louise. Thanks!

Your 2010 memorial for this lady is a duplicate of my 2009 memorial.

I looked Alpha up on my family tree. Her name was Althea Alpharetta Parrish Valentine and she went by "Alpha". Interesting...

OK here is something
John F. TAx Collector

Atlanta Constitution May 26, 1909
John F. Studsill Charged with Getting Money Fraudulently.
Milltown, Ga., May 15. - (Special)- John F. Studstill, who was recently
captured in Bowling Green, Fla., on ad-vices from Ashdown for getting money
fraudulently, escaped from Detective Tucker, who had him in chage, while
waiting for the train at Ray's Mill, near here, Saturday afternoon.
Studstill has been in considerable trouble here of late about money mat-
ters; he was for two years his father's assistant in the tax collector's
office in this (Berrien) county, but was under no bond. Last year the county
commissioners called for a settlement from the tax collector, but Tax Collec-
tor Studstill was unable to produce the books, claiming his son, John F.
Studstill, had them. THe commis-sioners finally checked up Mr. Stud-still's
books, and found him several thousand dollars short, which he promptly made
good. It seems that his son, John F. Studstill, did all the work in the
office, and it was through his hands that the money was short.
Some time during the fall the Atlantic Coast Line railway sent W. H. Stud-
still a check to this place, as this is his home and postoffice, a check cov-
ering their taxes for 1908, the check amounting to $913.55. John F. Studstill
got it from the office, and carried it to Jacksonville, Fla., and cashed it at
one of the banks there. Studstill got word that they were on his track, so he
left home here, and took a steamer from Jacksonville for parts unknown. After
a delay of two weeks or more the Bank of Milltown, of this place, began to get
sight drafts from Studstill at different points in Texas, finally wind-ing up
with a draft through the Ash-down bank, of Ashdown, Ark., for $5,-000. All the
drafts were turned down, as Studstill had withdrawn all his funds from the
