Thank you so much Jim for posting William's date of death - I'd search high and low and not been able to find it. Would you care to share your source? Thanks again. William was my great grandfather.

The grave marker for henry long was identified from the hand scribed H LONG that was written on the field stone, at least in 1977 the year I got my drivers license it was my job to take my Grandmother anywhere she wanted to go. She and several of her friends wrote down every name in a lot of the Upson co cemeteries. Christine Trice starling wrote a book which can be found in the archives there in Thomaston. her research was for the book started around that time and she was with us alot. Anyway if you blow the photo out as far as you can you can still make out the G on the upper right corner. She noted only that a much smaller more narrow grave was to the right with a stone scribed maybe W then L these graves are in the same row as Davis Long and in the middle section of the older part of cemetery. Many of our Starling and McDaniel relations are buried in this cemetery and was the church they went to. I wrote in as many as I could find there and recorded every grave I could find digitally several months ago as you know. I hope this helps you and yours. Hope you are all well.... Bren

off hand I know I have a picture of Annie May and James davis Long's wife and some of their children. Annie May was a barker from Barker springs ,(now called Perks near crest) That family is buried at Friendship if my memory doesn't fail me... I will find it and see what Aunt Irene wrote about her they were sisters but I am sure I Have something about Hattie and Alan gibbs. I will get back to you with the picture.

in the oldest section of the cemetery starting on the back row center there is a metal Pasley Fletcher funeral home marker for Mary E Long Cochran which was not there nor were the metal markers for Augustus Long and a baby belonging to Emory and Carrie Patrick Long but they are in the right place....
my Aunt Avis starling whittle (she out lived two husbands they are all buried there) went with my grandmother (fannie dora jarrell starling and I to visited the Starling graves to clean and hoe weeds . as we walked the two women told about different ones they knew and the story of how it seemed that every week there was a funeral there. But not just old, many young people and girls barely old enough to be having babies and the babies dying so tiny, Aunt Avis knew that the Longs were buried in the center of the oldest section Carrie's had a sister called Hatta (married Al Gibbs) that was Avis' best friend and the baby's grave brought tears to her eyes and she said it was just like yesterday when they lay this sweet angel down she said it never cried a whimper all the day and by night was gone.she married in 1914 and was scared to death of having babies
they had a car and somehow they kept a little gas and brought so many to or from the church. Her 1st husband died in 1918 and she fell into the church with everything she had 2 little boys in tow.
as you note the metal markers are in front of field stones and there is nothing left to read on the rough hewn headstones but the majority of them were erected at the same time replacing rocks and wooden planks

Let me know if you need her transferred to you. Will gladly do so. Also, I assume John Edward Hatcher is the spouse ?

Thanks for pointing out my mistake in linking Katurah B Rowell to the son instead of the husband! I have the info right in my family tree, but I did not pay attention to the dates when linking! -- I have made the correction. Please check and make sure it is correct.
