Shawn, I think the process of adding shaving cream to enhance the writing on old tombstones is a fabulous idea. Thanks.

Can you link Mr. John D Houston to his wife? I noticed there is a photo posted, but no one has linked his wife. I found in the Worth Co, History book where he attended a reunion of CSA veterans which was reported on May 20, 1910.
Happy hunting!

Find A Grave Memorial# 49865931
Hello Shawn,

I would like to ask for a favor. Could you please replace the photo of the grave for Millard White? At the time they were preparing for a funeral near this grave. It shows up in the photo and some family members don't like it.

I have sent a request for a new photo. I hope you understand why.

Have good weekend.

RE: John Franck Shine
Some years ago, a list of burials for the Blackshear cemetery was provided to the library by a patron. There are only a few gravestones at the Blackshear cemetery and, as far as I know, there isn't one for John Franck Shine. It could be that the person who submitted the information was mistaken and that John isn't buried in the Blackshear cemetery. Did you find anything listed in the newspaper?

Andrews Homestead Cemetery
Where is Andrews Homestead Cemetery located? Just found Broxton Cemetery, and listed its visible headstones and others from a burial list; a small cemetery. Seems like Andrews Homestead Cemetery will be small one also. Michael

Thank you for posting the photos of Jessie. Our Yon family has an profile for Jessie. After WWII some of the family moved to the west coast. Without your help, we would not have had this information. Thank you again for your work.

Wilkinson Cemetery
Hi, Shawn - I have transferred all of the memorials at this cemetery to you except one. If it's all right with you, I'd like to hang onto the memorial for Jim COBB, as I am kin to this family by marriage and will be researching his background and family connections further. Have you been in touch with Gwanda Place with the Chattahoochee County Historic Preservation Society? She chairs the cemetery committee for the Society and has spearheaded the effort to clean off, document, and assess several neglected cemeteries, including this one. I'm sure she would be interested in exchanging information with you. If you don't have her contact info (I think her husband William Place is listed in Cusseta), email me and I can send you her email address - contact me at newsompage -at- Thanks for your interest in this cemetery.

Hi Shawn,
The listing for George Houston, buried in the Red Oak Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery in Worth County, GA has a note left by you that indicates he was a Confederate veteran. Do you happen to know which unit he served with?

White at Cool Springs

My Mother was a White from Grady/Thomas Counties. I feel sure they connect to those in Decatur County. I also feel sure the Cox family connects as well. I have been sick lately and have not been researching as I was, but, hope to soon get back to it. Thanks, Winnette
