Bio and Links
I am at a time in my life where I actually have time to do some research on family. I'm specifically looking for any info regarding the William Jasper Hillis/Sarah/Sallie Meade/Mead family from Sylvania/ Screven county, GA and also the Felton Medicus Anderson/Florrie or Flora White (and Lilly Williams White Davis from Sylvania) family that were orginally in Barnwell, SC but moved to Sylvania, GA. I've been blessed to find many of my ancestors on this short journey some from here and other sources as well. I've recently discovered that I'm also looking for info regarding these families from SC: Clarissa Hair,Darling Lee, Job Rountree, Mary Ann Baughman (daughter of Harmon), Nathan, John and William, Peter Anderson (I'm so thankful for some connections that I've already made!)
On My paternal side that my Aunt has researched so well from Ohio area: Kohler, Dixon, Hedges,Clapper, Sterle/Sterling, Ringer, Worley, Wyscarver

RE: # 115844887
No relation. Would you like a transfer? BTW, I went ahead and transcribed the obit and deleted the scanned one. I've been trying to do that because they become searchable when doing a web search.

Jinks T. Hillis (1908-1967).
Dear Sherry
You may have thought when I requested that you please remove the duplicate picture of Jinks T. Hillis before that I would be able to remove it, But I'm sending another email because I have learned that the person who originally puts a picture at Find a Grave is the person who has to remove it no matter whether or not you have transferred the Management to another person and your name is under the duplicate.

I apologize for having to bother you with this but it could be confusing for a researcher who may think the remains were moved to another cemetery and that is the reason for two pictures of a head stone for the same person.

Thank you very much for your kindness with my request.

Jinks T. Hillis
When I asked that you remove your Duplication, I was referring to the Duplicate picture of my Uncle's Head Stone on his Memorial page which had already been added long ago by JRPV when he was the first to create Uncle Jinks Memorial.

Jinks Hillis
I understand that duplications are very easy to make but they are also very confusing for researchers who are building a legacy so their future loved ones will know them and the great sacrifices of our forefathers. And I've asked you before to please remove your duplication for Jinks Hillis. I have been told the reason I am unable to remove your duplication is due to the rules of Find a Grave being that the originator has to remove the duplcations they created. Thank you.

Hi Sherry,

The writing on the side of Moses' stone is his wife Nancy and I've created a memorial for her and linked her to him. When I photograph a cemetery I always walk around each stone to make sure nothing is missed on the sides or the back so I'm pretty sure these are the only two listed on this stone. Hope this helps :)

God bless you,

Jessie Pauline Hillis
Dear Sherry. Please be assured that it is possible for anyone to make errors when recreating the beautiful story of who our Ancestors were. But the devoted researcher 'jrpv' had already set up a page in 2009 in Find a Grave. com for 'Jessie Pauline Andrews Hillis' which is the name the grave stone picture 'jrpv' took identifies who is buried there at Bethel Cemetery. You seem to have duplicated this burial location and also reversed her first and middle name.
The grave stone picture which has your name as having taken it states that her name was 'Jessie Pauline Hillis' and not 'Pauline Jessie Hillis' who the page you've created identifies her as.
You may find it to be helpful to use the outstanding research tools at to avoid further duplications which may become very confusing to world wide researchers who consider Find a to be an essential location for genealogy. For an example, when I put only the name of 'Jessie Hillis' into 'search all records' at Jessie Pauline's birth of August 6, 1886 and death July 9, 1965 appeared with the vital dates of her spouse, 'Jinks A. Hillis,' whose grave stone picture was also taken in 2009 by 'jrpv' who also manages the burial locations of both Jessie and Jinks who were the Mother and Father-in-law of my Aunt Mattie Madge.
As you research please know Sherry that your kind efforts to preserve the history of your family will be appreciated by your loved ones now and passed down for hundreds of years. Betty Jo

Jinks Thomas 'J. T.' Hillis (1908-1967).
My Mother is Jewell Josephine Joyner Siebrecht and her sister Aunt Madge Joyner was married to Jinks Thomas 'J. T.' Hillis (1908-1967). Burial information for Uncle Jinks was already recorded by 'jrpv' in 2009 before you duplicated it in 2012 which may be confusing for researchers. And I have requested of 'jrpv' who originally recorded his information that I be allowed to manage my Uncle Jinks burial information. And I am also making this same request from you. And as a novice myself I realize how easy it would be to make this duplication error because my family Tree with 11,000 family members also has many errors. But there aren't words to describe the gratitude felt by the entire world for the extreme hard work and total dedication of all Find a researchers who have recorded millions of burial locations for the sole purpose that we may know our loved ones. And 'jrpv' who originally set up Uncle Jinks page and may have taken the picture of his grave stone because their initials accompany it, has researched and recorded 7,585 burial locations by themself without the expectation of even a 'thank you' from those who benefit from this labor of love. Thank you Sherry for your consideration of me managing Uncle Jinks burial location and information.
