RE: John V. Compton
My son and I walked the power line yesterday, ATV trails from hunters and/or power company employees made it much more passable, but still no sighting of the John Compton gravesite. I will venture out there again later on this month, but the stone has apparently been pushed-over and is covered in the thick brush/vine litter. Did not want you to be overly optimistic... aggravates me as well not being able to locate it.

RE: Old Ocee Cemetery, Alpharetta GA
No, pretty certain I did not create it. I remember going out and taking some pictures though (4 years ago?). The City of Alpharetta Community Development Department has records of all the cemeteries and the official name with the city. I remember looking through their lists trying to find location of an older cemetery.

RE: John V. Compton
Hey Linda,

Three walks down the power line did not disclose the headstone, but the underbrush is thick between the power poles. Ala. Power Co. said they do spray herbicide annually there, so I'll try again in February. An aerial photo of the site with the area of interest circled was provided by a power co. engineer, but it wasn't approved for posting to the cemetery. On my last visit to the area a local provided directions to the Seay Family Cemetery, but they didn't match those from a county cemetery compilation book so I decided to simply look for John Compton's gravesite.

RE: Atlanta Pet Cemetery
Linda, I have only found one photo among the ones I have with "Sugar" on it and that has the year 1972 on it as the pet of Jeanette H. and Floyd G. Chambers. The word "Tom" is on there as well. I am guessing that is not your Sugar but if it is, let me know.

I would be happy to go see if I can find Sugar for you, probably next week when the weather improves. Let me know if you'd like me to do that because I'd like to help if I can.

RE: Atlanta Pet Cemetery
Hi, Linda! I would be happy to help you in any way I can. I took a ton of pictures out there that day and I seem to remember that I saw a stone with 'Sugar' on it. I am on the way home from Knoxville right now (hubby is driving), but when I get home tonight I will get on my computer to look through my photos to see if I can find anything. Even so, if I don't have one, I'd be happy to go back to see if I can find it for you. It is not a big place.

Anyway, I will let you know either way later when I get home. Thank you for your kind words. Hope you are enjoying the new year so far!

RE: John Nelson Gregg, Sr
Hi Linda, I'm assuming this is Linda Ayers. I'm going on family lore from Poppa's Granddad "Mase" Mason Mannasah (John Sr. son) but I have heard they have placed a marker at Liberty that may have some info, May have been Tennessee, I wouldn't swear to Misssissippi I was just told he was killed near Corinth MS and buried in a mass grave. The one mistake I did want to correct is that he is buried in Black's Chapel, which is of course John jr.You have researched this way more than I have.

RE: John V. Compton
Saw their family links on his memorial and the broken headstone w/rubbing photo by contributor Teresa Watson. The Seay Family Cemetery is indeed close to John Compton's gravesite, both being just off of the eastern end of Woolfolk Road, but I'd have to locate the property owner before venturing there.

I plan on going back to locate John C's gravesite in 2-4 weeks when the weather cools down some, need to wear jeans & long sleeves in the thick stuff. The power line cut is an Alabama Power Co. easement, but after deer season opens in November hunters are active in the area. The yellow road sign in the posted cemetery photo has several bullet holes from folks senselessly firing in the direction of the power line.
