Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find this website most useful and hope that entries I have made will be helpful to someone researching family.
If you happen to see an error, please be sure to inform me and I will be only too happy to make changes. Also, if you see a member of your family and wish for me to transfer them to you, I will do so, gladly. Anything I post is yours to use if you like.

This website has allowed me to make many new relationships, one of which is my "photographer" (WD) who makes lots of trips to his local cemeteries for me. I am most grateful.
WD, Janice Cathcart and I have teamed together to document as many Tattnall County cemeteries as possible. Working with these two make this a relaxing pastime.

image not allowed
Hi, Dottie,

I liked your idea about adding the “no marker available” image to the Find a Grave sites for Joseph and Pollie Glisson. So I did the same with some of the other sites I manage on Find a Grave. I have since been informed by other Find-a-Gravers that Find a Grave does not allow this. I was referred to the Find a Grave FAQ section:

Can I post a photo containing the text "unmarked grave" or post a generic image of a grave to represent an unmarked grave?
No. Please record that information in the Note and/or Plot section of the memorial page. If you are a photo volunteer please inform the submitter of the memorial that there is not a marker so that they can add that information. This prevents volunteers from duplicating efforts in locating a stone.

So, would you remove the images from Joseph and Pollie Glisson’s graves? I’m so sorry.

Martha Neal Cotton
Thnx for your excellent coverage of "Aunt Lou." However, in the obit, it is incorrectly stated that her mother is Martha Neal, when in actuality, her mother is Bessie Neal, as you later stated. Could you please correct it to match throughout the document? Thnx so much. Terry Wells

My Appreciation
Dottie, I appreciate all you, WD and Janice do for me. My mother is Willie Mae Jarriel-Cossey, a descendant of Snug Jarriel and Mariah Saturday. We are kin to most all these folks you record and it benefits me greatly since I live in Texas and rarely can make it back there. Thanks and God Bless you all.

Mrs. Dottie,

I am the grandson of Winnie Pierce Savell and I would like to have maintaining rights to her memorial as I have photos to add to it, and would like to calculate her parents and siblings relationships to it.

Please email me at for questions and concerns.

RE: Ramona Parker
I noticed that the other memorial was newer but since you inherited so many, I thought you would rather delete yours. Is there a way to transfer the obituary from yours before it is deleted?
