Bio Photo Thanks to Bentley Fallis for the following info for the unmarked graves in Hillview East:

During the great flu epidemic of 1918 my dad was all of twelve years old and he said that CW Coleman , who wrote the county history, was a scout leader and a school official got a group of scouts together to dig graves as there were so many dying and having to be buried hastily during the epidemic. Maybe the city kept a record. In the old days the lots were sold and there is an actual deed recorded in the Troup county courthouse. I know as I have the deed from my grandparents lot from October 1923.
They also helped during the night that the tornado literally (1920)removed houses in the SW end of Callaway village I believe the end of Stonewall and Troup streets. Anyway the only light they had searching for people was Mr. Coleman's car which my dad learned to drive that night at 14 years old. He also had to go get gas and kerosene to help out.

***************************

There are over 400 "unknown" in the Hilview East also known as Hillview Annex Cemetery in LaGrange, Georgia, in the Pauper Section.. If you know who any of them are, please contact me. Of the 19 that have been identified by family and now have a marker with name and dates, the death year ranges between 1900 and 1949.

If you have a loved one that died in LaGrange Georgia or Troup County Georgia, and you have not found their grave, consider that they may be here.

I would appreciate it if you could leave a few flowers on their memorials. They are listed as Pauper Unknown and have the number that is on their marker.

THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone.

Deleted the memorials
Alice and her husband are not buried in Randolph County. Correct cemetery is where their daughter is buried.

Reply:
I deleted my memorials since you "found the grave". With the information I had in 2011, it made sense that they were buried in Prospect Cemetery in Randolph Co, AL instead of another Prospect Cemetery out-of-state!

Thank you for all the work you have done for Find A Grave.

I have not yet been able to dive into the info you sent.

A friend of mine has recently requested my help in adding her family to findagrave.

your help

Thank you for all your help.

I have recently run across some old newspapers with lots of obit info I have been adding.

Snarky people are the ones that think others need to be told how to conduct business or are always trying to stir up trouble.

Grave location of Carrie Hagler Tucker
Sharon. I am trying to locate the gravesite of my great-uncle's sister, Carrie Hagler Tucker. She and her husband, John W. Tucker are buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Macon, Bibb Co., GA. I found her Find A Grave Memorial page and it shows that you created her page on June 9, 2015. I added a photo to her page and also to John's page. I contacted Dennis " Popeye" and requested a photo of their graves. He contacted me today , saying that Mrs. Mitchell, in the Evergreen Cemetery office says that there is no record of Carrie or John being buried there. Popeye would be glad to take the photo if I can give him the location.

I am very upset about the office having no record. I went to the Evergreen Cemetery website and scrolled through all those buried there and Carrie and John are listed ! No plot # is given for anyone on the list, so how can I find them ? My husband and I are traveling from our home in Florida to Ohio on August 21 and we planned on visiting the cemetery. I don't know how we can find them if the cemetery records are so incomplete. Maybe you can help me. I am a Find A Grave member and contributor.

Thanks,

Marian Sue Clark Phifer

Thank you so much for photographing the headstone of my husband's grandfather! He was a World War I veteran and it was so nice to see the real thing.
