|Bio and Links|
just a History junkie, I have always been interested in the vast collection of history in every cemetery I passed through. Now that I have the time I just decided to try to get pictures of every stone I found in every cemetery I could get to. I have a friend who took photos a few years ago for OKGENWEB. I have noticed that many of the stones that she took photos of were 80 to 90 years old were still in fair shape (readable) but now the stones seem to have deteriorated to the point that they are not readable. I asked a few people what has happened in the last ten years that is causing these stones to decay much more than they did the eighty or more years before? A couple of people have said the reason is "acid rain" makes sense I guess so if that's the case we better get this history recorded. I am not a collector of memorials I just feel it is up to the living to remember the dead and help link the families so others can find there ancestors. The photos I take are posted to be shared I don't care about copyright as long as the purpose is to share with the family members. If there are family members who wish to maintain memorials that I have posted I will be glad to transfer to them as long as it's not from my family. Again I'm not in competition to see how many memorials I can make, it is just an O.C.D. thing (I'm crazy)! If I can help anyone find a long lost loved one it makes my day, I live in Adair County, OK. and will try to help find any grave within 100 miles of my home, good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise!|

|campbell2u||RE: Alice Leach|
There were no other Leach's in the immediate area. Sorry.
Thanks so much for the photo of Taylor's head stone
|William Woodburn||Eads Photo|
Thank you for taking the time to post the photo of Ms. Eads' gravestone. I really appreciate it.

Say, do you know what the story is on several of the people at Hungry Mountain? These people were all recorded by Tyner as being in "Levi Christie" Cemetery, which isn't on Find A Grave. Thought maybe that was one of the cemeteries they closed for building Tenkiller Lake, but I haven't been around here long enough to know. Thought you might.

Thank you for the information Mr. Coleman. I added the info you gave me and linked him to his wife. I apologize for taking so long to do this. If you wish to have him transferred to you, please let me know.
|Mary Ann Lee||Lucy Asbill|
Thanks so much for the photo of my cousin Lucy Asbill's stone. I appreciate your time and effort in taking and posting the photo.
|Gary Biggs||RE: Peter Asbill|
I cdn't help but notice Frances' message to you. I've worked with her several times. You have Kilgore's among your ancestral lines? My maternal great grandmother was Bonnie Mae Kilgore and her father was Geo. Dallas Kilgore. Are you related to them? If so, I'd like to share information with you. Do you have an ANcestry tree?
Thanks again for the photos. I placed Peter Absill's and Eliza Seabolt Absill's photos on my Ancestry tree and credited them to you. Hope that's OK.
|Gary Biggs||Peter Asbill|
Many thanks for fulfilling my photo request. I sincerely appreciate your time and consideration. I wd never had had the photo of Peter's grave without your help.
|Rick ||RE: John McLemore|

|PRIVATE||RE: George Washington Beach|
Here's my descent: George Washington Beach, William Alfred Beach, Elmina Beach Wimpey (my great grandmother & last Beach relative)
If you were in Dalton, Georgia, you would have a lot of relatives. I live in Huntsville, Alabama, but most of those people still all live in Dalton, including my own immediate family.
My great grandmother Elmina Beach Wimpey just passed away in the past year, and she lived my whole life about 1/2 a mile down the road from Antioch Baptist Church where GW Beach and others are buried. Some extended family used to go to that church, and I went there a few times as a little boy in the 1980s. My great grandmother didn't go to church much on her on, but she read Billy Grahman pamphlets at home and visited other churches with family on holidays.
There are kids I went to school with who are also descended from GW Beach and Margaret, but the relation is fairly distant, so we were never really considered family.
I never knew until seeing this listing that the graves of the Beaches were in places that I had actually been.
My 2nd great grandfather William Alfred Beached owned property, 80 acres I believe, north of Dalton, Georgia, and although that land has been sold off and divided, there are family who live in that area. I only know that because my great grandmother mentioned in in passing one day when she was picking me up from school to bring me home years ago.
As I said before, if you were in Dalton, Georgia, you would have many relatives, although because there are so many people and the relation is somewhat distant, a lot of those people don't keep up with each other, just the ones who are closer relations.
Thank you for responding Cus! I really appreciate it.
The reason I asked about those pictures is because the people in the one don't look exactly like the ones in the other, and I am wondering if that is actually two different couples.
