I've been interested in genealogy since a friend introduced me to family research in the 1990's. In 2010, after attending a Veteran's Day observance, I found an error in their handout, so I decided to write as much a genealogy as possible on the cemetery in my town of Statham, Georgia. I've photographed every headstone in the cemetery and have compiled a brief family history on all but a few of the over 370 names. My goal is to provide at least a 4 generation genealogy on each person interred there. |
I can provide e-mailed copies of my photo and the history that I've compiled, and I'm willing to visit local cemeteries with perhaps the exceptions of Barrow Memorial Gardens and Evergreen Memorial Park - they are just too large for my arthritic and flat feet.

I believe you have found my Great Grandmother and I could kiss you. Mary M. Hollis, wife of R.H. Hollis - we have looked for her for years. Do you know what the inscription below her dates says? I'm so excited to know where she is buried and have photos of her tombstone.
Thank you so very much.
Also, you state that you may have some history on some of the folks. Anything on her?
With gratitude and a few tears.

Jim, I will check with the Pentecost Church to see if they have a record of her burial there. I did know they were in NC on the 1930 Census. Some of Granny's family were still up there back in the 1950's because I remember them coming down to see us here in Asheboro, NC. Along about 1928 might have been the time some of the family fixed up an old school bus and a bunch of them came up from GA to NC with some of them getting off in China Grove, and my Dad and grandparents got off in Winston-Salem and the others went on up about Forest City, NC (per my Dad). My family was in Winston-Salem Census in 1930. I will keep searching and also maybe someone else will have m
more info and post it. Thank you so much for checking on this for me.

I do have a copy of the write-up about the William Pentecost Marker that has a photograph of the Marker and of the William Pentecost Tombstone as I was able to save it to my Ancestry Family Tree - also a photo of the Pentecost Methodist Church and it is the one where my Jones family is buried and I have an earlier photo of the church (in black and white) made around 1966. We spent the night with Miss Eudean Jones (daughter of Robert Hilliard (Buddy) Jones (my grandfather's older brother) and attended church the next morning at Pentecost. We walked around to the back and my husband made a photo of my little sister's grave (Lynda Lou Jones). There is a tombstone beside her that says M. J. Jones (10/25/1878 TO MAR 1, 1901) - don't know who that is but sure they are connected to my family - might be my grandfather's brother Joseph who I think might have died young. On 1900 Census, Chandler, Jackson, GA, a Joseph was living with William Zeno Jones and his family listed as a laborer and his father was already remarried by then. Thank you for "listening"
|Phyllis Jones Freedle||RE: William Jackson Jones|
I had heard that it was hard to read. So I think you have done a good job. I can read part of the birth and death dates from the close up photo. Could you give me your permission to use them on his ancestry page along with my photo of him? I have a picture of his 1st wife's tombstone that reads "E. C. Perkins wife of W. Jack Jones" Wish I could find someone who has a photo of her. I have photos of his 2nd wife "Minnie". I am in a photo with her when I was 2 years old. I am now 77.
I have another great-grandmother who according to her death certificate should be buried in this same cemetery but to my knowledge no one has photographed it. She died in 1930. Her name is Alice Patrick wife of Robert M. Patrick and I have a copy of his tombstone photo. Their daughter Sallie and her husband, George Robert "Bob" Haynie are buried there also.
Thank you for taking the time to help me. I do share my info with others trying to put their family tree together
|Phyllis Jones Freedle||W. J. JONES|
Good to see the photo of his tombstone added. I have been looking for a photo of this tombstone for a long time. Knew it was there as I remembered seeing the tombstone back in the 60's. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Would be interested in talking with you.

|Sarah Locklin Taylor||RE: Madge Hardegree (FG 21400391)|
I hope your next visit to the cemetery will reveal a date for Madge (Richard's mother).
I have added the obit your sent. Thank you!.
If the Hardegree family is part of your family research, I would be pleased to transfer them to you. Just let me know which ones you would like to maintain.
WOW, thanks so much. Her daughter in Texas will be delighted to be able to access the photo. Looks like it needs a little TLC but at least now we know that. diaNEB
