|Bio and Links|
My kids think going to cemeteries is what everyone does on vacation. I am a native Pennsylvanian, but have lived in Georgia for over 28 years, minus three years overseas.|
Many of the memorials I have created are NOT my family members, but after photographing, researching, and posting, they do begin to feel like family. I have no ancestors locally. Therefore, I have had to depend upon the kindness of volunteers living elsewhere to create memorials or take photos for me. In return, I try to take as many photos as I can locally to post to non-family memorials, hoping to "pay it forward." If I have taken a photograph you would like to use for your personal, private, off-line use, let me know, and I'd be happy to send you one of a larger resolution.
I prefer to limit transfers to established, regular contributors to Find a Grave who demonstrate an understanding of the FAQs and purpose of the site. (Don't mean for that to sound judgmental. I am just hoping to avoid potential problems.) Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related. If you are brand new here, welcome! Folks come and go often, and I like to make sure you're going to stick around and contribute regularly before I transfer. You may want to read the "help with Find a Grave" section to understand the purpose of the site.
Folks mainly interested in genealogy might well be happier having someone more active to manage the memorials,and use other more-suited sites to build trees. That "virtual cemetery" feature is also useful in sorting out the branches of your tree.
I volunteer at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, and am working on photo-documenting the whole cemetery. At this point, I prefer not to transfer memorials for this cemetery (other than mandatory transfers, of course) because my research is ongoing. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

|mike reeves||RE: Allen Elston cemetery|
There are unmarked graves at this cemetery, to include the family patriarch Allen Elston who died in 1868. As there are three graves for children of D. H. & C. N. Remson who died during 1855-1859, it would stand to reason the father would have been interred with them if he died while living there in 1865. I'll contact the owner to see if she has any information on any other unmarked burials. If she does, it will be relayed to you and added to the cemetery description. If not, it would still be reasonable to reflect his burial there.
|Hans Hammer||RE: Reginald Andrews|
Some relatives were in the office for Sunday in the Park. They brought the spellings and work links within the family. I found Reginald in the burial books and corrected the name and death date. He was linked as a wife rather than a child of. Will check to see if this got corrected. Hans
|Donna ||Luke Stephens Armistead-Oakland Cemetery|
Dear Friend, Thank you for posting these photos of Luke (Ludi) and his wife Annie. Ludi was my second great-uncle and, with his younger brother William Richard Armistead (my grandfather), worked as a lamplighter for the City of Atlanta. I would be happy to manage these two sites if you wish. Thanks again and best regards, Donna

Linda, These appear to be the wrong pictures for this Robson lady. The marker appear to be Weaver pictures. Please check - someone wrote to me about this, not realizing that you put them on. Thanks,,

Thanks for adding the info. It restores just a little flesh to the dusty bones buried there, and you never know whose searches it might help. ~~Carol

Dear L Ferree,
Thank you so very much for locating and photographing these gravesites for me. I truly appreciate it, and can't wait to share this with my family.
Thank you once again!
|Gerry Hill||RE: Pictures|
Thanks, I have added.
I am working on the Gordon family today- children of Malinda Cox in my family, and would like permission to use the two grave picture you have put on of Major Eugene Cornelius Gordon.
While I am working on them, I always enjoy stopping and joining members together, as I gather information.
Like you, I have lived here (Ga-Albany) most of my life, but my family interest covers 37 years, and the whole USA, with all my immideate family coming from the Eastern Seaboard to Ga- and STAYING. I lived in NY a few years----but came home. Thanks, Gerry Hill
|C. T. Lewis||Re: Find A Grave Correction: Elizabeth Swift|
My previous note said Lithonia Cemetery and should have said Stone Mountain Cemetery.
Sorry for the confusion; it's late at night.
