Willing to take pictures of tombstones in local area.....just write and ask me....email me if you notice any corrections that I need to make. If you are a family member of someone I have added and you would like me to transfer the memorial to you, let me know and I will gladly do so.|
Also, whenever I take a tombstone picture, if there are others around or near with the same name or if they appear to be related I take them too and post. So if you request a tombstone pic be sure to check for others that you might not have been aware of.
Lastly, let me say, that it is because of my mentor and cohort that I even got started on Find A Grave. It is Barbara Jensen (Robinette #47025656) that introduced me to this and we usually both go to the cemeteries and post the pics we have taken. We are a team. So all the thanks my profile get is for the team.

Thank you for the photos of my sweet great grandparents, William Ira Edwards and Nannie B. Edwards from Sardis Baptist cemetery #2. Nannie's looks like a mistake was made on tombstone. Mammie was changed to her real name, Nannie., but Mammie is still visible? Thanks again! Peggy Reynolds
|Bobbie O'Barr||RE: Question|
So that's what it is! I've seen a lot of this, and not just in Northview. Some of the churches in Hart Co. did have the tombstones professionally cleaned, I'm surprised the city didn't have the stones in Northview done at the same time. I'm not sure I like the way the stones look after cleaning, it takes away the "age" from the stone, which, to me, is part of the aura of a cemetery. But these flat stones that are mildewed/molded do need cleaning, badly.
Why do so many of the stones in Northview Cem. have black splotches on them? One can barely read the dates. Have they been sprayed with black paint? Vandalism?
|Bobbie O'Barr||Re: Georgia Hall # 80463316|
Joel and Georgia (Vernon) Hall had 11 children that I know of and they all lived to adulthood. Perhaps these three children (B. C., Louisa and Walter) were also their children but I didn't find them in any census records for Joel & Georgia. I can't link them without more information but I will note on the memorials that these children are buried in the same plot. - Bobbie
|Bobbie O'Barr||William H. Smith # 84590318|
You sent the following: "Because he is beside Miles Smith in the same plot, I believe that: He was the son of William Henry and Dinah Elizabeth (Sanders) Smith.).
William Henry & Dinah Elizabeth had a son named William Luther but he was born in 1895. I think this William was most probably the son of Miles Walter Smith but I don't have any proof for this so I can't link them as such. Miles had a son named Haskell that I can't find anything on, so maybe this is William Haskell Smith. But as I said, I can't link them on this alone. - Bobbie
|Bobbie O'Barr||RE: Northview Cemetery|
Robert...Thank you for all the photos you have added to the memorials in Northview City Cemetery. You and your friend have done a fantastic job; the photos are professional quality and the links you have provided along with the photos have been a great help in connecting the families. I do appreciate it, very much.
I do have a couple of memorials in that cemetery that I have some questions about, but I can't recall, offhand, who they were. I'll give this some thought and if I can remember who they were, I'll see if you can shed some light on the problem.
Thanks again for all your hard work; doing this when the temperature is in the 90's couldn't have been easy. You've done a very outstanding, thorough job. - Bobbie
|Bobbie O'Barr||RE: Vera Howard and Strickland|
The Howards had three daughters. One of them, Barbara, married Charles Strickland. They were living in Hartwell in 1981, when Vera Howard died.

I have changed the memorial to show the Bobo marriage. This does seem rather strange to me, though; she's buried with her second husband but her third husband is also in the same plot. Her obituary names her parents and children but makes no mention of any husband. - Bobbie
|Bobbie O'Barr||Mae Brown Culpepper # 84149439|
I have changed the spelling of her name to Maie to match the tombstone.
Thank you for all the photos you have taken in Northview Cemetery! I appreciate these and I especially appreciate the extra effort you have shown in noting graves located in the same plot and asking that they be linked.
Also notifying me of the discrepancies that appear in dates and spellings of names. Your information has been very helpful to me in linking families. I really do appreciate it.

Robert, would you check your "suggested edit page" for memorial 58538088 [Madison Frank Mitchell]. I'd like to replace his current bio with a new one that includes his recent introduction into the Law Enforcement Officers Hall of Fame.
