Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a BA in history, an MA in history, and an MA in Library and Information Science. I have been doing genealogy since I was a teenager. It is a deep passion of mine. I am available as a freelance researcher for hire.

I have copies of the cemetery books for Roane County, TN and Lowndes County and Stephens County, GA and willing to do look-ups.

I am working on adding the burial information for death certificates in Lowndes County, GA for the years 1918-1927. Currently (26 July 2016) just starting the J's.

If you need help with something feel free to leave a message or send an email.

RE: Harmon Blocker (166261818)
Thanks so much.....must have been one of those late-night projects, as I should have known better. Probably bumped the wrong key. It has been corrected and birth date added. Glad to straighten it out.

I do not add full obituaries to my memorials. I do however glean relevant genealogical data from obituaries I receive when that information improves the memorial.
Thank you for noting and reminding me that Calvin's date of death was very likely December 9, 1879. I say very likely as newspaper accounts in those days must be taken with a grain of salt. In this case however I can justify going with December 9 and have added that date to his memorial.

Hezieka Dowdy find a grave #129819367
You list Hezieka as having the following children:

1.Jessie Mae Dowdy Yancey b.1903 - 1984
2.Tom Pete Dowdy b.1905 - 1970
3.Ruby Dowdy Anderson b.1907 - 1999

These can not be his children since he died in 1878. Please correct this info.

Thank you,

RE: Mack Chandler in County Line
I found a record on Georgia virtual vault for Oglethorpe Co and it didn't list the cemetery so more than likely there is more than one. Anyway thanks for checking into it. Cat
