Bio Photo I am a farm wife, mother of two sons and granny to a granddaughter and a grandson. I'm a retired para-professional from the local school system and just recently retired from a part time job at a local café.
I've always been interested in my family tree and love to wonder through cemeteries. In Dec. 2004, thirty years of research (photos & info) went up in smoke when my home burned. Since then I've been working, when possible, to replenish my collection. I've found I'm a lot older & slower now - GRIN.

POPLAR CEMETERY MCGUIRES
Ma'am: I was in Poplar Springs Cemetery just the day before yesterday. I have a bit of a problem but I don't think its a very difficult one.

The graves of:

Carrie Lee Wright McGuire: d. October 24, 1919
Infant Daughter McGuire: 1919 - 1919

...may very well be buried in unmarked graves.

Poplar Springs is a relatively small cemetery, perhaps 300 graves to it, I estimate. There is a McGuire family plot, one in the older side of the cemetery and another one on the newer side. I did not take photographs this trip (and wish I had). There is a stone of McGuires who death dates are about 1938 or 39 and I do not have their names readily available to me (my mistake).

I spoke to the church today and received some location help, but its not precise.

Could you provide for me any other siblings that Carrie Lee may have had who possibly passed maybe twenty years beyond her passing? I will return to the cemetery next Saturday or Sunday armed with that information and get as close to the possible graves as possible for you.

If you'll give me yet another week, I believe I can get you a photograph close enough to say "this is more than likely it." The church cemetery records unfortunately did not record that far back or are faulty. The cemetery assistance I received today said that it was not common practice to mark a grave if a baby had been still born or perhaps did not live long enough to be named.

In short, I'm seeking an unmarked grave. I'm willing to go back there, but it'll be April 30th or May 1st before I am able to.

I saw where you posted a flower for Grannie, & she was your Great Aunt. Date of posting was 12 April 2010. My mom, Joyce Jarriel Hagans was the daughter of Annie & Garnie Jarriel. We are now the keeper of our ancestors. Mom has passed as well as Daddy. My mom, Joyce Jarriel Hagans and my dad are in Lower Lotts Creek Cemet. in Bullock County.

Any info you can send my way will be certainly appreciated.

James F. Brown photo
Hi. You added a photo to my memorial for James F. Brown Memorial# 64793077, but I just realized that there is a duplicate memorial that was created before mine. If you would like to upload your photo to the original Memorial# 53145826, I would be happy to delete the one I created so that there aren't 2 for the same person. Thanks.
