Bio and Links
64 year old white male born in Jesup,Georgia currently live in Macon,Georgia. Was married to Kathy Marshall for 40 years until she died in 2011. I have 1 son and 2 granddaughters.Have been doing family history for about 30 years since joining LDS Church.I am disabled so I can't go traipsing through the woods looking for lost cemeteries but if I can drive to it I will be happy to assist you.I really appreciate all the contributors to findagrave as you have saved me many hours and miles.I wish some of the contributors were a little more concerned about accuracy as I constantly find transcription errors and people who are connected to the wrong parents and children.

I have a few questions before I accept the edit.

His headstone shows the dob as 1882, but you are saying that the dob is August 1881. What kind of documentation do you have for the change birth?

Ruth Owenby Plott & Emmitt Edward Plott
Hello. I just wanted to make sure that you were aware, I located the graves of Ruby and Emmitt Plott. Their graves are located in Norcross, GA at Peachtree Memorial Cemetery. I have uploaded images of their headstones, but if you could go in to their memorials and edit the burial information that would be wonderful!

thanks a lot
happy holidays

RE: Annie Mae Thomas Dukes
Our stop here was for a Find A Grave friend request and I took photos as long as the battery lasted. So, any you see are up for transfer.
Best to you and all yours, Bud

Happy Researching, Bud

RE: Cowart's at Ft.McCoy Cem
Thanks for replying. I've cited the SSDI as the primary source for the DOB/DOD, as that is really all I needed to document.

Cowart's at Ft.McCoy Cem
Hi Ottis,
It's me again!
Since only the YOB/YOD is documented on the headstone for Clarence & Leola, please provide the name/title of your source(s) for the edits you sent, to be included on their memorial's. A simple reply to this message stating SSDI, Fla Death Index, Obit,, ETC., will suffice. Sorry, but I don't have time to look up sources for edits. Thanks.

RE: Mamie Kimball Cowart

Don't worry, I never changed it in the first place. I was waiting for you to provide a source for the change. Too many variations in census data you cited, so I did a little sleuthing.

I'm satisfied KIMBALL, as inscribed on her headstone, is correct. She is also cited as Mamie Kimball in two of her son's obit's, as well as on her Bulloch Co., GA marriage certificate.

Many thanks for getting back to me on this.

Mamie Kimball Cowart

You sent a correction for Mrs. Cowart's maiden name. Please provide a credible source for the name "Kimbrell", as "KIMBALL" is inscribed on her headstone. This may well have been a mistake on behalf of the monument company, but I have no source to back it up.
