Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 1955 at the request of my maternal grandmother whose maiden name was Dorsey and had married a non-related Dorsey, I began working on family genealogy supplying information to the Dorsey Association that held their Dorsey reunions at Mossy Creek Campground, White County, Georgia. The information I gathered was later included in “The Dorsey Family” book compiled by John Tucker Dorsey. Later in 1971 after publishing my father’s memoirs I finally got into the Wade family history. Then I discovered Findagrave a year and one month ago and have been busy ever since meeting people who share the same interest and have the same reverence for the departed. A lot of my activity involves research and detective work on the Internet which I enjoy and it’s always a thrill to connect with a distant relative, or non-relative for that matter, who gives you the gift of sharing. While I concentrate on Dorseys and Wades their marriages have led to numerous other families too many to mention that I also follow.

RE: Walter Frazier Tombstone
You're very welcome.

When I took the photo of Walter Frazier's headstone, I noticed it's right next to two identically shaped headstones. I'm not sure if they are related, but they are right next to each other and in the same shape. It's possible it was a type of headstone popular at the time. They are Eva Spencer (Find A Grave Memorial# 123356343) and Jessie Spencer (Find A Grave Memorial# 123356380).

RE: John Franklin Evans
I am curious about Laura and Charles Moncrief, who are buried with them. I suspect that she is Lula and John's sister.

RE: John Franklin Evans
My camera ran out of capacity just as I was photographing these graves. It's possible there's an Evans lot next to it, but I won't know until I get back to the cemetery, which may be several weeks.

RE: two or one cemetery
The are both in the same cemetery. One of the FAGers
Made a mistake and put the photo in the wrong cemetery. No Big Deal. We all make mistakes. Thanks so much for your help. Charles is not in Fritz.

RE: two or one cemetery
Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention. I contacted the person who took the photo for Charles and it was an error. Although the death certificate does state that he is buried in Fritz Cemetery. I moved him to correct cemetery where the headstone picture was taken. Thanks again
