Bio and Links
Bio Photo A Southern Family Tree is not a tree but a beautiful Wisteria Vine with many branches going everywhere and a lost root!

NSDAR 1988 Patriots: Rev. Lewis Cookson Davis, John Anderson, Charles Heard, William Hay, Lt. Willis Pope, Nathaniel Jones,John Stovall, Absalom Davis and Owen Griffin. Only one has a known grave site so the rest do not have memorials on FAG. (Update Nov 2015: found that other members are now making unknown burials of these patriots meeting their genealogy storage goal and not FAG's goal of recording graves sites)

Colonial Dames of XVIIC 2009 Colonial Ancestor: Bartholomew Stovall, NC

Amelia Island Genealogical Society~ Corresponding Secretary 2004-2005 and Past Nassau County, FL Genealogical Website Committee member.

Published in the Quarterly magazines of the Southern Genealogical Exchange and Amelia Island Genealogical Society articles on my family and various others of North FL lines.

6th Generation Floridian: Ancestor Florida Pioneer Abner Sweat and son Samuel.

To keep weeds out of the beautiful Find A Grave garden....

First, I don't link to Burial Unknown Site Memorials as BU shouldn't be on FAG according to the guidelines of the website. Do not request relationship edits to a BU as it will be refused. The first criteria for making a memorial on FAG is having the burial site, as this is a grave registration site. When you made a BU, you have a chance of losing the memorial to the member who "Find A Grave" in the cemetery.

Second, I may or may not transfer outside of the guidelines to an established member. It is my choice. Long-time hard working-members, who are busy in surveying cemeteries and taking grave photos impress me more than someone who is collecting others' memorials for their personal goal or waiting for someone to find the burial sites for their numerous memorials made with an "unknown burial site".

If you are seeking transfer to "have all your family together" ~ use the virtual cemetery button. Then all of the memorials will be in the same "cemetery", and you can look at them daily.

Lastly, there are no duplicated memorials on FAG. If I find a duplicated memorial while researching this site, there is 99% chance that it will be deleted or merged eventually.

You may disagree with the guidelines but remember the guy who started Find A Grave wrote them. He is the boss.

Many of the memorials transferred to me were done without my request for them. These memorials have found a home and will be nurtured.

Also, thank you for all the flowers and tokens left on my family's memorial. They are all sincerely appreciated by me and my family.

Remember to check on the Discussion Forums here. They are very newsy, helpful and interesting!

RE: Nassau County Florida
I heard from Jim Bass last Friday regarding his next article for the quarterly newsletter so I hope he hasn't died this week!

My husband desends from Thomas Browning WIngate who was the youngest son of Jeremiah. There were a lot of children and grandchildren in the family. Many with the same names!

Glad to make a connection.

RE: May Erwin Talmadge
I did those earlier today. I was checking May's to see if there was a relationship link there when I found your original post.

So far haven't found Mary Mills Erwin death certificate in GA or TN indexes. Was hoping to find her in Forest Hills as we are documenting all the organizing members who are there. So far up to 15.

Thanks Again

Nassau County Florida
Reading your bio I found that we have in common Nassau Co. Florida and the Southern Genealogist's Exchange Society. I have been working with Jim Bass of the same group about the descendants of Jeremiah Wingate of Nassau Co. This along with the Higginbotham and Forsythe families from this area are my husband's ancestors. Glad to find someone else interested in that part of the world.

May Erwin Talmadge
I am a member of Judge David Campbell Chapter DAR in Chattagnooa, TN Mary Taladge's mother was Mary (Mollie) Mills Erwin who was an organizing member of our chapter. She lived with her daughter May in Clarke Couty in 1930. Her father died in Clarke Co. in 1930. I think she died about 1935 but have been unable to find any death or burial information on her. May's father and brother are buried in Chattanooga at Forest Hills.
Do you have any information on Mary Mills Erwin's death or burial?

Thank for any help you might be able to provide.

RE: Irena Sendler
Not sure why you could not have written up a bio about her instead of just deleting the information. How inconsiderate. Regards,
