Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into. ~ Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858|
The grave my little cottage is,
Where, keeping house for thee,
I make my parlor orderly,
And lay the marble tea,
For two divided, briefly,
A cycle, it may be,
Till everlasting life unite
In strong society ~ Emily Dickinson
I hope the information and photos I have added to Find A Grave will bring to you a sense of connection to those who have passed before us, and by their very existence, gave us life itself.
Please pass on whatever I have added to the memorials to others and websites to share so that those who may never pass this way will find that connection as they discover their loved one's memorials on Find A Grave.
May that discovery give delight to those who pass by here; a bit of connection to one's history; and a perspective that by recognizing our days are numbered, one should live it accordingly: It is the memories one leaves behind for others that leaves a legacy beyond one's grave.
Take the time to smell the roses and let it encourage you to leave the sweet fragrance of your life behind for others to enjoy.
Freely use any photos I have submitted for any purpose and upload them to any genealogical site you prefer.

|ParkerMoulton||RE: William Marston|
Thank you, Tricia!
Many thanks for the fine job you have done on the memorial for my 9th Great Grandfather, William Marston. The last Marston surname in my family was seven generations later, when my grandmother, Myrtle Fannie Marston was born; she later married Clement Moulton and the surname Marston no longer continues.
|Jane Clancy Debenport||John Campbell's Will|
Dear Patricia. I cannot thank you enough for the information that you posted on John Campbell. The transcription of the will is an added bonus. I am not of this family, but I am a researcher who is helping one of his descendants establish a connection for a DAR line.
Your concern with sharing information is admirable. I am one lady who appreciates your efforts! Jane C. Debenport jcdeben@Vvm.com
|Sidney||RE: Photo for Murphy Baxter|
You are very welcome, I found him with his wife while I was doing some work at Rosario, then found your memorial when I went looking for links. Are you related? I'd be happy to transfer her over.

|John Mallory Land||MATTHEWS marriage|
Tricia - What a coincidence. I moved to Columbus, GA, about three years ago (this is where my parents grew up and married), but I lived most of my life in and around Dallas (The Colony, McKinney, and Frisco) - so perhaps we know each other? I got that marriage record from a database at the LDS family research site "www.familysearch.com" which is a free site. They provide an Indexing Project (Batch) # M71391-1, and a GS Film # 219569 - but nothing in the way of a Book # or Page # to document the source. That would have to be gleaned elsewhere. I checked a marriage list on the Georgia GenWeb site for Warren County (again, no book or page #s), and it shows a marriage for Benjamin MATTHEWS on this date - but the bride's name is left off! You may have to contact the Warren County Probate Court and see if they will look up the marriage and copy it for you. Those records would also be on mircofilm at the Georgia State Archives - if I ever get up there, I will check on it for you. Good luck! - jml
|John Mallory Land||Benjamin & Sarah MATTHEWS|
Hi, Patricia - thank you for the updates on Memorials #79157754 and #79157718 for Benjamin & Sarah MATTHEWS. Are they your people? Do you happen to know if they are this couple: Sally WILMOUTH married 12 OCT 1809 in Warren County, Georgia, to Benjamin MATTHEWS ? I'm not related, so far as I know, but happened to photograph the graves during a visit to this cemetery. Thanks again - John http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=46870015
|Susan I. Grills||Metilda Baxter and siblings|
Sorry to be so late responding. The headstone in question lists 4 Baxter siblings that died. Metilda is among them. It says only that she was about 10 months of age. Sorry that it is so hard to read. I will try to get back over there, find the stone, and photograph it in better light.
|Brenda A. Darbyshire||RE: Elizabeth Hollis|
Maybe you are more computer savey than I am for this is the only photo I have. Send me the email address and I will send you the one I took.
|Susan I. Grills||RE: Metilda Baxter Photo Submission|
Sorry, I no longer have the original of the photograph. I will try to get over to the cemetery soon and try for a better photo, but the stone is quite faded being over 200 years old.
|D. Marston||Wm Marston|
thank you for your sponsorship of my husband's ancestor, William Marston
