Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Savannah Georgia and grew up near there. I currently reside in Ireland but continue to research my Southern American roots. The main focus of my research is the Harris family of Pike County Georgia and the Green Family of Bulloch and Tattnall Counties Georgia. I am related to MOST of the people whose memorials I manage. However, I will still be more than happy to transfer a memorial to you if you are more closely related to the person than I am. The important thing is for the memorial to be managed and cared for by someone who truly loves the person that the memorial represents.

RE: Alfred Baker
That is amazing! Well if he is your family you should ask for his memorial to be transferred to you! Also, add a biography about him so that others can learn about him as well. I love going out and finding these memorials for people. It's wonderful when you actually get to learn about who they were also!

RE: Alfred Baker
He has a beautiful family name marker it's huge and looks like some sort of lamp like maybe back then they'd add oil to it and it was a light? His wife is next to him and I am adding her photo now if she doesn't already have one! I'm happy to help! I enjoy it!

You're welcome. Do want a list of all those resting in that MAXWELL Lot shown in one or more of the photos? (I believe I put it on NATHAN's listing and on ZILPHA SASSER MAXWELL's (buried beside Nathan with similar coverstones & upright white granite headstones)).

RE: Henry J. Stephens
Did the list give his County or City of residents at time of enlistment?
I have had a very hard time finding my relatives from my fathers side of family. I was in my late 50's before I knew Henry J was buried at Mt Paron, the church I grew up with.

RE: Henry J. Stephens
I don't think your H J is my GGreat Grandfather. He appears on the 1864 Census for Re-Organizing the Georgia Militia for Sumter County, Ga. and your information has him not getting paroled until 1865

RE: Henry J. Stephens
I Cannot find any documents that Great grandpa Henry J (sometimes referred to as H J) Fought in the Civil War. However he had to older brothers that did, Jacob Stafford who was wounded and sent home to die and William R who was killed in action. Jacob Stafford returned to Sumter County and lived until 1911. Any information you have about H J I would really appreciate you sharing. I cannot account for any of my relatives in Sumter County between 1865 and 1880.

RE: Norman Ivan Maxwell
No problem, I am accused daily of being mean, I think we are just so busy and trying to get everything done by our deadlines, that we simply don't sugar coat things. Not a problem with me, I so appreciate your sending the message with the info. Should I find someone with a photo of Nathan Maxwell, I will surely let you know.

Have a great weekend.

RE: Norman Ivan Maxwell
Mr. Harris,

I have made the links as you requested. Thank you for the documentation. You would be surprised how many times I get half dozen requests to change the death location, etc. doesn't matter than I already have the info from the Death Index in the bio or part of the obituary showing this very information.

I am some what surprised that your remarks sounds like you are offended that I asked you to provide documentation for your edit. I ask this of everyone. After all, if I have to look it all up, that is all I would do all day long. But, with documented evidence, the next great grandchild is going to insist that my mother said, whatever. So, I do not make any changes that I can't back up.

Also, in the future, please do not make your change request, etc, on my profile page. I usually do not check it very often. There is a place on the edit for other information. Please place it there, that way there is a link to the memorial it applies to.

Kind regards,
