|It is a curious thing how one photo of an unfamiliar relative can spark your interest in your search for your ancestors. In searching thru a box of photos my mom had inherited thru my grandparents, I came across a photo of a relative I did not recognize. In looking at his photo I could see the familiar traits my paternal grandfather shared with this gentleman. I discovered he was a cousin of my great-grandfather. I wanted to know more-so my quest began. I have been able to discover relatives I did not know existed through various webistes. Find A Grave is essential to any family history research that one may want to do. Even thouugh a US census is completed every 10 years, relatives and born and die in that 10 year period. Therefore, records of these relatives may not be shown on the census and would be missed otherwise. Several relatives had children that lived a very short time and they would not have been counted on the US Census.Thru Find A Grave I have been able to complete a more acurate family tree.|

Just wanted to thank you for posting pictures of the gravesites of my Grandmother, Bertha Josey, Grandfather, Joe Josey, and Uncle, Alfred Josey.
My dad, Albert Josey, was Alfred's twin brother. He passed away August of last year and is buried at Dellwood.
I have never visited Bethel but my Mom has flowers placed on the gravesites each year. I was able to send copies of the pictures you took to our florist to ensure they deliver to the right location. I am in California and handling this for my Mom this year. I'm so grateful you posted the pictures. They are a big help!

I was just fascinated looking up this man's history, and all he accomplished, ending up in a remote corner of Georgia setting up a farm. The fact we had photography and telegraphy before the Civil War, still amazes me, and Zoath's photo is one of those early early shots. Thanks for the note.
|sticksandstones||Zoath Spooner Photograph|
Was the photo you reference in the box of photos in your contributor bio, Zoath Spooner? If not, where in the world did you get such a gem of a photo. Considering photography was invented in 1827, and Zoath passed in 1856, a photo from that period was pretty expensive and rare, and that it survived with information about the subject of the photo, is amazing. There is such a story in this man's face and eyes!
|Rich Priest||RE: Mary T. Lambert (Springs Cemetery)|
Thanks. I haven't found one for him either. Nor have I found where he's buried. If I find it, I'll be happy to pass it along.
|Rita Lavorgna||RE: Charlie J. Spooner|
Since I am only the "owner" of Charles' record, I could only put a reference to the relationship -- not an actual link.
