Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an avid gardener in east central Georgia who has also been working on my genealogy for the past five years. That was how I discovered Find A Grave and several photos of ancestors' grave sites. I was so amazed that someone took those photos that I too joined Find A Grave as a photo volunteer.

My photos are your photos so feel free to post or use them anywhere and in any way you like.

When it's spring planting time or summer canning season this lady might not have a whole lot of extra time for grave finding but I'll try!

Families I'm researching:

RE: Gunn Family Cemetery
Hi, the only directions I have are a little confusing since names and numbers were used to describe the area.
"Cemetery directions as follows: At Wrens go east on Hwy 88, cross intersection in Matthews - turn left on road #22. After passing dirt road #19, turn left down narrow passageway. Cemetery is about 0.5 miles down the road. Road is not vehicle friendly...have to walk."

Wrens is a city, you probably know that, Matthews intersection is HWY 88 and Stellarilla Mathews Rd, I think. I have not been able to find Rd 22 or 19.
Looks like it will be a real challenge. I will contact the person who gave me directions and see if she can clarify.
Thanks for the effort.
Let me know as soon as you can if you know about where this is.
