Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my families for over 30 years. Currently, I'm trying to scan & share a large collection of old family photographs and documents that have come to me from various relatives, mostly my late grandmother.

As I scan & prepare the photographs, I'm trying to post as many as possible to findagrave for others to enjoy. Especially the very old ones. Some that are labeled are not of known family connections so I'm also researching the names in an attempt to identify them.

One that I am very proud of is Jesse Elton McEwen, buried at Palms Woodland Cemetery, Miami-Dade Co FL. It took a fair amount of research to figure out that he is probably not related, but simply a neighbor of an ancestor in Carroll Co GA. I've created a memorial for him with the information I collected. Please visit his site and show him some love.

Another memorial that I'm very proud of is for my ancestor, William Francis Marion Nobles, who died as a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas IL. His final resting place is Oak Woods Cemetery, Chicago, Cook Co IL. Please visit him also.

I hope you enjoy visiting my paternal great grandfather, Hilborn Whit Hulsey. My maternal grandfather, Rev Virgil Sizemore, preached his funeral before there was a family connection. My parents were only 10 years old and I don't think they met until a few years later. If you know any of the people mentioned that aren't linked, please let me know.

If you appreciate the storytellers, you will enjoy visiting the page of my distant cousin, James Walter Estes, one of the best! My favorite from him concerns the 1887 funeral of another distant cousin, John Jacob Bauknight. It became known locally as the Tanners Church stampede.

The pallbearers & escorts for my Hulsey cousin-in-law, William C Sanders, is essentially a Who's Who in the reconstruction of Atlanta and were instrumental in making it the great city it is today. Scroll down his obituary from the Atlanta Constitution and click their links. Many of them have bios.

Surnames I'm connected to include: Adair, Ashworth, Barnett, Beam, Black, Burks, Cates, Clore, Crow, Dickson, Dunson, Estes, Gilbert, Hendrix, Hulsey, Leathers, Lowe, Lyle, McBrayer, McGlathery, Meadors, Mobley, Mote/Motte, Nobles, Pate, Parr, Pinson, Reid, Sanders, Simonton, Sizemore, Stanford, Steele, Stephens, Tomme, Vining, Waldrop, Williams, and others.

Places I'm particularly connected to include: Laurens Co SC, Henry & Clayton Co GA, Carroll & Haralson Co GA, and Blount & Cullman Co AL.

re: Hulda Hicks/Reid
I have added Edna Morris' bio to her memorial. Even though you show some evidence that her mothers maiden name was Reid her birth certificate shows Hicks. So I can not change her parents names in the bio until I can investigate it further.

I will make the necessary changes as I find them andlet yoy know.

The info quoted as the source of your info is unreliable because the MemID given #47292192
is a memorial for "Bud Morgan" not a contributor.

Possible error
Hi Debbie

My name is Jerry Reid, I have been researching the Reid family for over 30 years. The info I have on James Lawrence Pritchard memorial # 109772086. The Alabama death records give his name as Joseph Lawrence Pritchard. Also Joseph Clarence Pritchard memorial #109772183 I have I have as James Clarence Pritchard. I do not believe his name was Joseph, that would mean that they had two children with the name Joseph. If you have further info on them please let me know.

Thanks for transferring Clyde Glenn to me. I am currently working on Linking all of my relatives that I can. Mainly the Drakes, Lamberts, Andersons, Stidhams, Millers, Coles.

Aunt Clara and Luther only had the 1 child.

Virginia Evelyn Anderson Drake is my great grandmother and wife of my great grandfather John Turner Drake.

I have Drake relatives that migrated from Madison County, Ga into the Atlanta, Fulton, Ga. area.

Virginia was born in Atlanta, Fulton, Georgia. If I find out that her ancestors were in Madison, Ga I will let you know.

It looks like we may have several common cousins.

I got lucky and found my great uncles & aunts: Adron Coy Miller Find A Grave #180827829, Leola Oaks Miller Find A Grave #180827884, John Thomas "Tom" Miller Find A Grave #175648890, Vesper Mae Stamps Miller Find A Grave #175648789.

Thank you so much Debbie for transferring this Memorial to me. I will take good care of this GGG Grandmother who made it possible for my G Grandmother to live and to share the story with me. Rhoda had to go out with a lantern in many cold/hot days and nights to milk the cow and look after little "Janie". I feel like crying. Blessings to you! Bonnie
