Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, Friends, Cousins & unmet Cousins..there are so many of you out there. Wish I could have met you in years gone by.
I am Betty Jones Nesmith. I live in Pelham, AL, abt 20 mins.south of B'ham. My Dad, Robert Dewey Jones, was Clay Co., GA & left for B'ham in 1924, abt. 3 yrs after his Mom, Ellen King Jones died. He came for an opportunity in the industry going on at the time. We are related to many families in Calhoun, Clay, Early, Randolph and surrounding area in Georgia, in some little way. Enjoy bios in the findagrave entries, because, I see connections. Thank all of you for the hard work you do in photographing and recording those buried in the cemeteries of our relatives & ancestors. I have been able to add so much to my files, because of your hard work.

RE: Jesse (Butchie) Screws
Hi, Mrs Betty. I am not related to the SCREWS. But just moved to the area and Patton Chapel is my closest cemetery so I'm starting my documentation of it. I don't see that you have any incorrect info, But there was another memorial for Jesse before you made yours. That's the # I sent to you. They just need to be combined and one deleted. Officially, the older memorial takes precedence, so you would need to put your info on that one. The sir name is misspelled on the other. I have an edit request to the other contributor on that.
Glad to "meet" you. I look forward to working with you and other area contributors. Happy new year!

I have located (in books) and created accts for Uriah and Malenda NeSmith. The true credit in physical location will be as noted on the accts. Hope this helps solve a mystery or two and possibly helps with a brick wall in your research!!!! Merry Christmas! Maria

The Mackey family
Hi Betty,

My name is Deborah Mackey and my dad, Woody Mackey, always talks about you when we discuss genealogy. I recently worked on indexing Patton Chapel cemetery and I'm also researching the family history.

I was responding to a message from Kaye Sutley about my maternal relatives at Union Hill Cemetery and saw a post from you on her board. I just wanted to say hello.

RE: Family History
Hi, Betty -- yes, I knew Herb was "one of the clan!" He is such a nice guy. I'm like you and haven't been able to make many HHS meetings, but possibly seeing you there will be a new incentive!

Since you are a niece, would you like me to transfer their memorials to you? I am not a relative, just a volunteer who photographed the cemetery gravesites.

I can add it to her bio, but she is not related to me. Use the edit button like before.

I am filling in for MissTree - she had a bad accident and is recovering but currently cannot type or get onto the computer.
MissTree is not related to this person. I have transfered the memorial to you.

RE: Miles Ewing
Hi Betty,
Sorry to hear that they are not listed. We run across that a good bit. A lot of times, memorials are added one at a time, and then there are times when someone will go in and do the entire cemetery. We will usually do the entire cemetery, if it is not to huge, and if there are a lot missing from Find A Grave. I don't know if you still live in that area, but you could add them and take a picture and add that too. Unfortunately we live in the Atlanta area and don't think that we will be it that area, or I would be happy to do it for you. Thanks for the additional information on Miles.

Miles Ewing
Hi Betty,
I have added your information to Miles O Ewing. Please feel free to let me know if there is anything that needs to be added or corrected. Also I do not have your Grandmother linked to Miles. I searched for her and did not locate her on Find A Grave. If you have a memorial number for her just let me know, and I will be happy to link them. Also as I said in my earlier email, if at any time you would like Miles O Ewing, transfered to your care just please let me know.

RE: Lavancy Rimes/Rhymes Carter
Betty, I apologize for taking so long to respond. I've been up to my chin with preparations for my sons wedding next month.
I have had to stop doing ancestry for awhile, so I am going to print this out and save it for after January when I fire up Ancestry again.
Thank you so very much for the information on my family. At one time I did in fact have Ollie added to my files, however, for some reason I thought I was on the wrong track and I deleted him. Just goes to show save save your print-outs, etc.
Again, thank you
