"Genealogy becomes a mania, an obsessive struggle to penetrate the past and snatch meaning from an infinity of names. At some point the search becomes futile – there is nothing left to find, no meaning to be dredged out of old receipts, newspaper articles, letters, accounts of events that seemed so important fifty or seventy years ago. All that remains is the insane urge to keep looking, insane because the searcher has no idea what he seeks. What will it be? A photograph? A will? A fragment of a letter? The only way to find out is to look at everything, because it is often when the searcher has gone far beyond the border of futility that he finds the object he never knew he was looking for." ~ Henry Wiencek ~ The Hairstons: An American Family in Black and White|
I couldn't have said it better myself so I left it to someone else's words to express my feelings about this genealogy path I have taken.
My father's mother left behind a very large scrapbook, which is very well documented, of pictures and memorabilia so that her family and her husband's family would not be forgotten. I feel it's my duty and my privilege to pass along this information. With the help of the internet and sites like findagrave.com and ancestry.com, I can help other people find their roots and look into the eyes of family members and maybe find a piece of themselves in them. This way, they will always be remembered for who they were and what they experienced during our history.
Thank you in advance for any help that I am given by this community of people. This is an important site and I am excited to be a part of it. ~ Pam

I thought I knew of all the Chases in Dow Corner... is Helen related to any of the following? Zenas, Isaac, Lois, Abigail...??
|SDriver||Nancy L Wood Hadaway|
The stone you found would be for the daughter of John T and Lucetta Wood Hadaway (Nancy L).It has already been photographed for this site. John married 2 times to 2 Wood sisters: Nancy and Lucetta. The stone I was interested in was for Nancy Wood Hadaway. I was afraid there would not be one as she died in 1857. Apparently this was the case. Thanks for taking the time to go out there and look for me.

You're welcome and if you have any information on the Conard's that isn't shown, I'd love to see what you might have.
|Judy McGilvray||RE: Another Willard in Dacula|
Yes I would like Selener Willard information & tombstone, they might be related. I am researching all the Willard families I can find, first in south Carolina, later in Forsyth co. Georgia for a cousin of mine. Would like tro find all i can for her.
You're so kind to do what you did for me.
|Gerry Stanley||RE: Frank & Mabel Conard|
Did you see the headstone. Sorry I'm just now getting around to telling you the headstone had been added.
|Papa Randy||Geneva Hutchins|
Thanks so much for the photo for Geneva Hutchins. It is truly appreciated. I'll be sure to let her daughter know it has been added now.

Thank you for this information. I have changed the name of the cemetery.
|Sherry Edgar Scheurer||Edgar Cemetery|
Hi Pam. Thank you SO MUCH for the offer to try to locate this cemetery. The only information I have about this cemetery is as follows:
" ELISHA EDGAR IS BURIED IN A FAMILY CEMETARY IN BETHLEHEM, GEORGIA. THE CEMETARY IS LOCATED OFF MANNING GIN ROAD TO PHILLIPS ROAD. THE CEMETARY IS APPEARS TO BE THE J. H. THOMPSON FAMILY CEMETARY. ABOUT 10 OF THE THOMPSON FAMILY MEMBERS ARE BURIED IN THE SMALL FAMILY CEMETARY. ELISHA EDGAR HAS A CONFEDERATE STATES HEAD MARKER."
I hope this can be helpful in some way. I am very anxious to see pictures from this cemetery if it can be located.
|Sharon Tate Barker||RE: Sinia & John Yarbray grave photos|
