|Bio and Links|
I am somewhat new to Findagrave.com, but I hope to give back some of the invaluable assistance I have received in my genealogical quest. By organizing and cataloging my ancestral line and documenting the milestones in the lives of my grandparents and bringing to light, those events lost to time.|
I was prompted to begin a family tree when I discovered how difficult it was to explain relationships to my son when he was of a young age. It was complicated by the fact that my father was adopted, as was his mother. With each new discovery I was motivated to find out more and more information. Nothing could have spurred me more than the time my research lead me to reunite my father with his biological sisters who were separated as toddlers more than fifty years earlier.
My mother's family is rich with history. Their roots so deep in American history. Fighting Indians as Colonists, as revolutionaries and loyalists, as Indian traders and neighbors to George Washington, serving in the War of 1812 and fighting the Union in the American Civil War. Each line seeming to stretch back further than the one before, and around each corner another fascinating story.
This started as a project that would seem to have a final result. I have since learned that this is an endless quest. A constant work of editing and refinement, expanding with each new discovery. I love it!

|Karen Pfirrman||RE: Julia Ann Bray|
Actually, if I remember correctly there is no other burial that seems associated with hers. I will however double check as the cemetery is only about a mile from my home. I'll let you know what I find out.
|Bobbie O'Barr||Mrs. Bray - # 101826512|
I'm sorry, but I don't have any further information on this person. The statement I included with her memorial was taken from The Hartwell Sun newspaper, published in Hartwell, GA.
In the September 26, 1877 issue of the paper, it stated that Mrs. Bray died on September 18, 1877, at the home of T. S. Bray, from a lingering illness. She was buried at Cokesbury Church, Hart County, on September 19, 1877. She leaves a grandson, T. S. Bray.
There was a Thomas S. Bray on the 1880 census for Hart Co., so I feel like he is the T. S. Bray mentioned above. He was not in Hart Co. in 1870. There were no BRAY families in Hart Co. in 1860, but there were several in Elbert Co. and Franklin Co. You might try looking in these counties for early info on this family.
|Donna McPherson||RE: Statenville Cemetery|
Thanks much I have just retired and about to take a trip there to search for my Herndons.
|Donna McPherson||Statenville Cemetery|
By any chance do you know if all this cemetery has been done? I have numerous Herndons I have not been able to find. One is the husband of Florida Herndon that is buried here.
|TeaAriaHall||Pvt John Clem Sirmons|
Great information on John Clem Sirmons. I'm related to Hardeman Sirmons his 2nd cousin through my grandmother. Anyway, I was wondering if you knew when and why their Surname: Sirmans was changed to Sirmons?
Thanks again for the great information!

Thanks bro for introducing me to Findagrave.com.....I am officially hooked. Love the silhouette of your little baby face on your profile. You still have that same puffy bottom lip....cute.

Richard, I have been to the cemetery several time and have not located her grave. She was my wifes great grandmother, Her daughter Sarah Ann Elizabeth Geiger married John B Jones. After John died she was married 2 more times. She is buried at Hebron Cemetery in HAmilton CO., FL.
The next time I am in Jasper, Fl I will try to go back to Prospect cemetery and see if I can locate.

|Charlene Zeigler Taylor||Lewis & Mary Taylor|
I stopped by Empire Prim. Bap. again today & searched, but still didn't find these two. Sorry.
|Charlene Zeigler Taylor||The Taylor request|
When I went to Empire, I had taken pictures of Taylor graves. I did not find the specific ones you requested, but I do have a picture that I took, it is of several. I had captioned it "Taylor Group" due to Francis Virginia Taylor is the main headstone you can read, then in the row, there are 2 unmarked graves, then the next one has a headstone, it's super hard to read, and on the other side of it, it appears to be another unmarked grave. So, maybe it's possible that the 2 Taylors in question are in the unmarked ones?
(I have been searching forever to find my great great great grandmothers grave out there - Nancy Boyd - and have been told its unmarked, but I still search for it among the others every time I go.) It makes it more difficult too, it seems every other person was named Nancy or something, and there are maybe at least 20 Nancy Boyds, same time frame, but only one was my ggg granny. And apparently, she didn't make herself known too much. Sorry I couldn't have been more help.
