|Bio and Links|
|I am documenting the genealogy of my family. This includes the families of John Marion and Alice Mary (Needham) Kenney and James Wilbur Read. Surnames include Kenney, Read, Needham, Ditch, Halley, Gallop and many others, all of which lived in the Chicago area in the early 1900's. The Read family came from Saratoga County, New York and the Kenney's were from Pennsylvania.|
I have a tree on Ancestry.com which is currently private but I am willing to share information with anyone. When I feel confident that my data on Ancestry is mostly correct, I will make it public.

Thanks so much for taking all the photos that I requested.
|Eric Brantley||RE: Brantley|
Oh cool. Thanks for the info. The A.D. Brantley that was married to Virginia is Asbury Dodge Brantley Jr.
My great grandfather who also lived in that area was Asbury Dodge Brantley Sr.'s brother and the parents to all of them was William James and Sallie Reynolds Brantley. So far I have found all of the children except for my great grandparents. Joseph Henry and Irma Seals Brantley. I know they lived in Sparta and Mayfield. For a while they moved to Savannah and once the kids were all grown they moved back and all the children stayed in and around Savannah. One of their sons was 21 years old and married 3 months and he and his wife accidentally drown. Still haven't found their graves but Henry put his own address on both death certificates as Mayfield.
I understand about the heat. I need to move west during the summer. I live in NW GA and it is just as hot and humid.
Thanks again for this.

Thanks so much for the picture of Asbury's headstone. I have been planning to take a trip down there but waiting until cooler weather in the Fall.
Did you happen to run across any other Brantley people there? Thanks so much!

I don't know these people at all. I am doing a virtual cemetery on the men in the 1st Infantry, The Big Red One, WWII, and Wilbur Williams was one of them. His memorial had no photo so I requested one. In doing some research, I discovered who his Dad was. So glad that you were able to get the rest of te family. No, I do not know that lady. In fact, I have never even been to Georgia. Thanks again. Appreciate all your help. P.S. I am not a member of Archives or Ancestry but might join one if I could get some good info on some of these people.

Excuse my boo-boo on the previous note. I see now that I looked at the birth year of the son instead of the father. Makes more sense now that they were husband and wife. I need to learn to read!!

Thank you so much. You definitely went above & beyond my request. I appreciate it so much when the photographers take family photos along with the request. Do you think that Manardia & Nancy were husband and wife? They must be as they are side by side. She is quite a bit older than him. Was Wilbur's gravesite very far from these. Thank you again. You are a fantastic photo contributor.

Thank you for your generous contribution to findagrave and getting the photo for me. I really appreciate it.

Leroy and Martha Culver had a son named John Thomas Culver 1843-1927. Probably VERY likely the same person.
Since you discovered it, would you please enter a memorial page for him in the cemetery and attach a photo if you took one.
Let me know the Find A Grave # and I can then add it to our ancestry tree on ancestry.com.
If you don't want to add it to Find A Grave just let me know and I will add it there in the same cemetery as his father and mother.
About all we know at this point about John Thomas Culver is that he was born April 22, 1843 in Hancock County GA and he died Jan 25, 1927 in Green County GA.
Please let me know what you decide.
|John Robertshaw||Thanks you for the Culver photos|
Thanks very much for the photos of Leroy and Martha Culver.
