|I started off researching family history but more recently I have made it a hobby to photograph cemeteries and fulfill photo requests when possible. It thrills me to help fellow find-a-gravers :-) Feel free to contact me!You have permission to use any grave photos I post here. I took them for you. Also, I am as fast in responding to changes/ transfers as possible. 7 days max. I *WISH* WISH *Wish* people would not duplicate names in cemeteries. There is so much work to be done and it is a shame to waste even 5 minutes on a memorial that already existed. PLEASE check for duplications before adding your information!Also please verify your facts before adding someone to a cemetery. Just because the records say buried in a certain town does not give you the right to assume the cemetery. IF you have to do that, please NOTE on the memorial that you have done so!!|

|waD||Andrew Dodds' Wife|
Kristin...I am trying to locate death and burial info re: Anna Dodds. After Andrew's death she married Capt Louis F Green. Both men buried at Jacobs Chapel Cemetery. I have no record that she married after Lou died. In Census records she consistently reports she was b. 1837 in Ohio. Do your sources have any further info regarding her; remarriage, death or burial? Thanks for checking for me.

I can see why someone could want to attach her to Elizabeth Ann Congleton James but she passed prior to the birth of Georgia W Nichols, in Bibb, Alabama,July 5 1844.
