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.

The reason that he was linked to who he was, is because his cousin gave me the info. Are you aware that this cemetery in which he is interred is of african origin? Please advise...dave

Mary, second wife of John Ross Avery
The listing for John Ross Avery has a note that he married his second wife, Mary, in 1905. The Columbia County, Florida marriage records show J R Avery married Mary Dees on 26-Oct-1905.

this is the A listings.)

The home page is

The 1900 census has Mary Dees, widow, living in same household with Charles W Avery. She is listed as his aunt. (John W Avery lives next door)

Milton Dees married Mary Sistrunk in 1879 and died in 1899 leaving mary a widow. Milton and Mary Dees are listed in the 1880 Census.

I believe Mary Avery died in Suwannee County in 1938.

If the Pearce's at Ebenezer are not your family, they are mine but farther back than the Findagrave Guidelines. While it is too hot to photograph cemeteries I am working on my genealogy, and I have a lot to add on the Pearces.
Thanks, Much

RE: William Allen Wheeler
Yes it is. Maude Wheeler was my Grandfather's sister. She Married William Wheeler in 1903. They lived in Georgia for quite some time where Mr. Wheeler was involved as a teacher and school system administrator. In their later years they both moved to Lake City until their deaths.
