|Bio and Links|
I am semi-retired and have quiet a bit of time now to devote to Find-A-Grave network.|
I was raised in the Talbot, Marion, Taylor County areas of Georgia and now live in Newton County.
I plan to busy myself in aiding those requesting photos or other services in my geographic area which will more or less include Newton, Rockdale and Walton counties here in Georgia. These areas are on the eastern side of Atlanta metro.
If I can be of service to anyone, I will try and do my best to help. Hopefully, in the near future I will have more time to provide.
If I have established a memorial which you would wish to be transferred to you to maintain, please do not hesitate to let me know. E-mail me direct if you wish.
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care.
It's much too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died, and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew,
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Yes, He is my Great Grand Father on my mother's side. His son, Otis Parker, has a son also names David Allen Parker
|Vera Kilgore||Marianne Riddle|
Gordon, Thank you so much for the photos of Marianne's Memorial and grave site. She was living in Florida when she died. I couldn't find her in Florida and had just about given up. Do you recall who is buried on either side of her? Marianne's parents,Claude S Born, Agnes Harris Born and her brother Claude Jr. died before she did and I haven't been able to locate them. I live in Acworth, Ga. Conyers is close enough for me to be able to visit her grave site and pay my respects. If it wasn't for you I don't think I would have ever found her. Marianne was my 1st cousin, she was a remarkable person.
Again, Thank you,
Vera K Merrell

Hi Gordon -
Thanks so much for the transfer. The timing was so strange. I periodically do a search in Georgia for Callie because I never knew what cemetery she was buried in. I haven't searched in quite a while and lo and behold! You had added her memorial 2 days earlier! What good timing on my part. LOL
Have a good one!
|Pamela N.||Rutha Simmons Cook|
I believe that we are cousins. Rutha Simmons Cook was the sister of my 3Xgreat-grandfather, Thomas F. Simmons of Meriwether, Co., GA who died in Talbot in 1897. (He was living with his son at the time of his death.) I am researching the our Simmons line and I have traced back to Jones, Co., GA in the early 1800's. I would love to communicate with you or anyone who has information regarding our Simmons ancestors. Pamela
|Birdgirl||RE: Mattie Lizzie Dial|
Thanks for the up-date. As or transferring, I am not related to them; I was researching the Mitcham Family yesterday and came across her parents.

You are welcome. I'm sorry I could not find her. I tried to find the Concord Cemetery too. I think that it is in the woods barely visible from the road. I found one on 36, but it was the Nelson Cemetery.

Gordon - Thanks a bunch for the photo!

I've added the links to Mr. Hanson's parents, with a note crediting you as the source of that information.
Thank you for your kind words about his memorial (and those of his wife and son). If you have any additional information about them or would like to write biographies and have them added, I'll be delighted to update their memorials ASAP. Your adding photographs of them in life would also be a great thing, as I doubt there is a "need" for more grave photos (except I'd love to get a family plot image without my shadow in it!)
Yes, the operation went well but I've had a series of complications since; it still seems prudent to have that "not around as much as I'd like due to health" style message up on my bio.

|J. Benjamin Chrismond||Shiloh|
Just a note on the corrections I sent you: the listings for "Shiloh Cemetery" and "Old Shiloh Ind Mis Bapt Church Cem." refer to the same cemetery. A merge request has already been sent to the admins; they may or may not run the auto-dedupe. Will let you know about further cleanup after the merge. Best, ~Ben C.
