RE: Thank you for the headstone photo!
Mina, Clare Stock's headstone photo has been added; If the quality is not good, I can retake the photo. The cemetery is not far from my home. (Also do not have to cross any creeks or rivers to get there!) Andrew

RE: Headstone Photo
Regarding your second message - the person buried next to Isaac Newton Walker, Find A Grave Memorial# 150292772 is not the person linked to him as his spouse, but is a person who didn't have a memorial, so I added one.

Her name is Lyda Griffin Walker, 1892-1966. memorial 178696904.

I would tend to assume this is his actual spouse, but I leave it up to you to make any changes you think needed, or not.

I am only reporting what I found which is curious. Look at the photos I posted for Henry. The old stone and the newer one are both Henry G (same dates). There is an old broken stone next to Henry's old stone that I assume is for Pearl. The old stones and the newer ones are both in Macedonia but not next to each other.

Henry and Pearl Goggins
I added another photo for each. Can you explain the older headstones that I found located in back part of the cemetery, top of the hill?

Thank you for all the great research you and rwy have done on my family, the Sills. My grandmother is Mary Bel (Sills). Her father was Arthur Sills. He has a memorial here. Find A Grave Memorial# 157989878. Arthur was Pearl Sills' husband. He passed away at the young age of 36 working on the railroad and Pearl never remarried. My grandmother, Mary Bel, took care of her. Mary was born Sills, but married my grandfather, David G McNair. They had my Uncle Bill (William David McNair - still living) in 1930 or 1929. They had my father, Jack Eugene McNair, Dec 5, 1936. David G left Mary in early 1940s. She raised the two boys on her own until she met A.J. Bel. I never knew A.J., he passed away before I was born, but he was the only grandfather my sisters knew. David McNair wasn't very involved in our lives. I met him a couple of times, but don't really remember him. I just know the stories of what a brilliant architect he was before he suffered a severe head injury after falling down an elevator shaft. After that, he was never the same and suffered from delusions of grandeur. My grandfather, David G McNair, and his parents David and Margaret McNair, are also buried at the Sunset Memorial Cemetery. They were immigrants from Scotland. They came over to America in 1909. A.J. Bel did have a son, John Bel. John, Mary's stepson, moved to England and married Diane Bel. John passed away a few years ago and is buried somewhere in/around Manchester, England. He has a memorial here too and it's a tragic story. Alan John Bel's Memorial# 40653253. My father, Mary Bel's youngest son, Jack Eugene McNair, also has a memorial page here: Memorial# 982258. He passed away in 1995 from complications to diabetes.

If you have any questions about the family, I would be glad to answer them. Thank you for all the pictures. I appreciate you more than you know.
