Bio and Links
Bio Photo Long a history buff, one of my grandmothers gave me her grandfather's letters, written during the Civil War while serving in the Confederate Army and as a prisoner of war. I've primarily concentrated on updating and listing direct ancestors, though I've added information, listings and links to some of their siblings as well. I have a copy of the late Jean Dryden Christian's detailed Dryden Genealogy 'Willey and Sarah,' which she distributed to extended family in 1988.

I also add listings and gravestone photos in cemeteries I visit. If you are a descendant of one of these people within findagrave guidelines (direct descendant, no more than three generations), I'll be happy to transfer administrator duties to you. Please do not create a second listing for the individual then ask me to delete my listing, such requests will be ignored.

Please understand that I can't fulfill photo requests in cemeteries with tens of thousands of graves without being given a specific location for the individuals.

If you have additional information, corrections, or just want to get in touch with me, email me rather than publicly posting your query. That way I'll see it faster.

Some of the surnames I'm searching include: Dryden (Kansas, Missouri, Indiana, Virginia, Scotland), Wilson (Florida, Georgia), Harmon (Kansas), Dyer (Kansas, West Virginia and Virginia), Spear (Georgia), Cook and Bartlett.

Happy hunting!

RE: Helen Harmon
My pleasure. Personally I would love to have something given to me from my ancestors if someone came across it.

Helen Harmon
After attending an auction in Oklahoma. Wanting to add to my stamp collection. I found a letter from Roy to Miss Helen dated 1922 (before marriage) and 8th grade report card of her son Jimmie. I would like to pass these to any relative that would appreciate the items. Please contact me anytime.

Mark Manning photo request Graysville Cemetery Catoosa County, GA
Thank you for searching. I've also run into the problem, when trying to fulfill someone's request, of being unable to find a marker after searching the entire cemetery. Thanks again!

RE: Elizabeth Julian in Blackwell Cemetery
Yes - I had to park in Council Fire Subdivision and then walk across the golf course.

Luckily - a golf pro new where exactly it was and told me what road to go down to park.

RE: Elizabeth Julian in Blackwell Cemetery
I wanted to let you know that I have already taken and uploaded photos for Elizabeth Julian in Blackwell Cemetery.

There were two requests and by the time I fulfilled the request for Gladys Julian and got back to the screen to fulfill the request for Elizabeth - you had already claimed it.

Just wanted to let you know to save you a trip.

Ok on Everett and Zula's memorials there is a place on both that have where they are buried and you can tell from those where they are buried. They should both have section block/row and space :D
