|Bio and Links|
I'm retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs and living in Douglasville, GA -- in the same county where my ancestors were pioneer settlers ca. 1830. |
Since 2006 I have served as Chairman of the Douglas County Cemetery Preservation Commission. We have about 50-60 old, abandoned cemeteries in the county -- some of them very well concealed back in the woods. Each one is now cleaned at least once a year by the cemetery commission and a crew of county jail inmate trustees. I'm in the perfect job to be taking photographs of tombstones and providing information about them.

Sandy, all I can say is, What a Wonderful Thing for The "Folks" Serving time in Jail can take part in. What could be more sobering, than this. Not only that, but this is Truly a Rewarding Thing to do in Anyone's Life. I think they should Implement this in many more Counties.
I hope since You are in such a High Position as you are, Maybe You can write a Letter to The Governor. God Bless. And, Please let us know, if anything comes of it.

Hi, I seen you on the Hilderbrand grave site.

Redbird Smith was born on July 19, 1850 near the current city of Fort Smith, Arkansas. His father was Pig Redbird Smith, whose surname "Smith" was given to him by European-Americans since his worked as a blacksmith. Redbird Smith's mother was Lizzie Hildebrand Smith. His parents were removed from Georgia to Indian Territory. Both his parents were ardent traditionalists, and at the age of ten, Redbird Smith's "father dedicated him to the services and cause of the Cherokee people in accordance with ancient customs and usages."

Thank you so much for taking the time to take the photo. I see that her name is not Martha V Boggs but is instead Martha V Beggs, I guess the person that made the memorial did not take the time to verify they had the correct name? Guess this is not the person we are looking for. Maybe her family will find her. I will notify the original poster and ask them to correct their information.
