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: duplicated your own memorial
By the way, Linda, how did you notice the duplication? Are you a relative? How interesting -- let me know! Candice

RE: duplicated your own memorial
Sorry I haven't checked things for a little while. I was not aware of 2 memorials for Raylene and when I checked they had been "merged" so maybe you helped with that somehow. I have NO idea. Anyway, thanks. Candice

Yep. You're most welcome, or should we say, he is most welcome.

The information on Kizzie 'Thompson' McClellan Find A Grave Memorial# 150782048 was given to me by a grandson. He said both Kizzie Thompson and Joseph McClellan was buried at New Hope Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery.

RE: James Garner

Thank you for the king words regarding Mr. Garner. When I was young, I saw 'Move Over, Darling' and I was a fan for life. It was an honor to write his bio and that of Polly Bergen, as well.

RE: Photo missing
I think I may have slipped & hit the wrong photo which went to your site & then had to erase it. Sorry for the angst!

Patricia Riggins photo
You're quite welcome, Linda. I still hope to get a better photo of Patricia's niche, the reflections are really bad in the glass & it's hard to get enough light to be clearly seen too.

I have a copy of the Application For Headstone by Hearne American Legion Post 454 and they give his Death Date March 4, 1885. If you want I can send it to you.

Mary D White Gauthier
I received a correction for her death date. It should be February 8, 2003. Funeral Service was February 10, 2003
Here is the message from Lynne Tullos
Hi Jerry,
I am the niece (by marriage) of Mary D and the wife of one of her nephews, Tim Tullos. You probably know Pierre, Lloyd, and AddieJo Gauthier from Cottonport, on Owen's side of the family. Tim is one of 4 nephews on Auntie's (Mary D) side of the family.

When the funeral home etched the granite, they put the wrong date. I called them as soon as I saw it and of course they said they couldn't "undo" the chiseled date. I told them that was not acceptable but obviously they haven't changed it. I am planning a trip there in April to see what can be done.

We live in Baton Rouge so Cottonport isn't "on the way" to any destinations we travel. I am attaching a picture of the funeral card with the correct date. I don't have an account on Ancestry so I hoped you could correct the mistake there. I cared for Auntie when she moved to Baton Rouge and I handled her business affairs and the funeral, which is why I feel responsible for the funeral home debacle.

With kindest regards,

Lynne Tullos

Please make the correction on Find A Grave. Appreciate it
