Marie Josephine Lux Miller

I am adding the information and photos for my hooks cousins and I would like to thank you for adding Marie. I added her photo and obit today and will add more soon.

I would however like to ask if you could transfer her to my account? I would like to add her typed obit to her bio (so that it's googleable) for her children and grandchildren, make her connections and add additional information.

Thank you in advance

Asa Bates
This is more info about my great, great grandfather whom you took a photo of his grave and did his write up I think. Maybe you could add this as he was an important early settler of Columbus.
Asa Bates was born in 1799 in Boston, MA. Trained as an engineer by the U. S. Army, he was sent to Columbus, GA in 1827 to organize a local company of militia for defense against the Creek Indians. Locals were not receptive, and he resigned his commission to stay and make a home with the girl he loved, Caroline Reed. There was plenty of work in a brand new town for an engineer. Among his many projects, he built the First Presbyterian Church in Columbus and the Opera House, both of which retain their outward appearances but had to be rebuilt inside after fires during the gaslight era. When the Creeks went to war, he was quickly elected to lead the Columbus Guards militia company, and was made Col. commanding the GA troops in the last Creek war. At different times, he served as Fire Chief, Police Chief, Sheriff, and County Commissioner in Muscogee county and Columbus. He raised 16 children at his residence in Girard, AL, where he at one time owned 6000 acres. Add Matilda Adelaid Bates as the youngest child
(1864-1942) She was my great grandmother and married James J Joines. She is buried in Westview cemetery in Atlanta, GA.

Nancy Mountain Bigham
Bruce, Thank you for posting my 3rd great grandmother's maiden name. I noticed that you photographed near all of the markers in David - Moon Cemetery, and that you had posted several unknown adult markers. I am looking for Nancy's oldest daughter's resting place. Her name is Margaret Jane (or Jane Margaret) Bigham Cunning. She died in 1837 and her name recorded Nancy's Will. I also noted that the David Dean family had several members buried there This family was well known to the Bigham's and Cunning's. All of the above burials appear among the earliest burials. Do you know of any old survey with the names of people buried in the cemetery and/or any article written about the cemetery's history? Those documents would be of great help to my research into these families. Any direction to location of these documents would be appreciated.
Thanks again for your postings..... Bill

I saw your picture of the burial site for the fallen. Are the headstones readable? Can you go look for a James Scoggins? He was my gr gr grandfather.

I have been doing a lot of research to find him.

Thanks, Cindy

Hello Bruce. Great photo as usual. Glad you're back, I was wondering where you got to, I was afraid I offended. Anyway, just out of curiosity, did you by chance notice a wife Louise beside Gordon?

Greetings Bruce. I hear Debbie taught you to use the Linwood office computer? She mentioned you by name, so it seems you're my go-to guy. Lucky you. So, having said that, if you get bored this weekend? Rich.

Linwood Cemetery
Greetings Bruce. Thanks for your efforts. There was a reason you couldn't find William Love at Linwood, he's in an unmarked grave beside Lily. Lily has a marker, William died later and does not, a cousin explained to me, and she sent me a picture of the site, so I withdrew that photo request. But I see you found the DesPortes burials, I'm grateful. I'll have to visit there, seems there are many other burials in that lot, and the building fascinates me, makes me wonder if everyone is posted on findagrave. If I can do you any Virginia favors, just give me a shout. Rich.
