Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related.

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.

NOTE: Obituaries are a wonderful source of information, but findagrave has rules about how they may be used. You can always glean facts from them for the bio. If they are out of copyright, or if you hold the copyright, you can transcribe them. Regardless of who has the copyright, you are not supposed to post them as a photograph - regardless of whether you scanned it, took a screen shot, or downloaded it from another website. Please feel free to send me obit text via the edit function, and I will use the info to add to the bio. Obits posted as photos will be removed, and it just ends up wasting your time.

RE: George Washington Bolger
Would you please also add (Stone's River) beside the entry next to Murfressboro? Since there were 3 battles at Murfressboro, it might help to clarify just slightly. I had to go re-read the CSSR's. I was thinking he was wounded after Chickamaugua. And it was actually before, and he returned to duty at got himself on the CROH rolls!

I think my dates are correct - if not she would have died before she was born. I almost always look up everything on Ancestry to make sure. I think that is why I have a specific date of birth.

RE: Josephine Wood
The Bessie M - 8/1880 is apparently Dessie M. Wood/McKeown. If you want to type obit, I will remove it. I know about the rules, but wanted you to see it with the name of Hammett for Josephine, also the marriage record. She married him in 1903 and is still going by Hammett in 1915. I found a man names Alexander S. Hammett - he is buried in Dallas, Tx - dates seem correct, but hard to say that it is him.

RE: Corbin siblings, PS
Wow! You mean I am 75 years old and not even claimed as a child of my father and mother and won't be listed for 23 more years! (If I live as long as my aunts, etc,) You have to be dead to be listed as a child of your parents! Wierd! No, I did not know that! Funny they list you in the Obituary then!
Thank you for the tip, no need to try and even check people for any correct family facts!

RE: James Duren
I understand why you couldn't change the last name and I did see your explanation in the Bio. I appreciate you adding the link I requested and all the things you and others do for Find-A-Grave.

I have several relatives buried in Oakland in Section 11 Block 165 Lot 3. You have covered this, but I was wondering if you could provide me with a list of everyone you have record of in this lot (Bought by Jerry E. Johnson) and I could connect them for you.
