Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related.

I volunteer at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, and am working on photo-documenting the whole cemetery. At this point, I prefer not to transfer memorials for this cemetery (other than mandatory transfers, of course) because my research is ongoing. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

NOTE: Obituaries are a wonderful source of information, but findagrave has rules about how they may be used. You can always glean facts from them for the bio. If they are out of copyright, or if you hold the copyright, you can transcribe them. Regardless of who has the copyright, you are not supposed to post them as a photograph - regardless of whether you scanned it, took a screen shot, or downloaded it from another website. Please feel free to send me obit text via the edit function, and I will use the info to add to the bio. Obits posted as photos will be removed, and it just ends up wasting your time.

Thanks for calling my attention to the duplicate for James Kilgore at Oakland. I have deleted it.

Agneta Brooks
Hi! I'm fairly certain this is my husband's great aunt Agneta Viola Brooks. The headstone appears to have a middle initial V rather than B. If you agree, would you be able to change it on the memorial? thank you ! Leslie

Caroline Ferree
My information on her maiden name is from her death certificate-Father George Stevenson, Mother-Susan Tantlinger Husband-Charles Ferree. A listing in Ancestry has her married to Benjamin Collins 1853-1891, that would be before she married Charles Ferree

RE: Elmira Hutchins
I'm not sure what happened to Peter's memorial. I did search, but was unable to find one. You're welcome to administer these if you wish. Just let me know.

John Holbrook
Hello Ms. Ferree: I am a descendant of John and Mary Holbrook. My mother's family is from Atlanta, Georgia. She is 91 years old and I am trying to find out family tree information for her. The Holbrook's were the grandmother and grandfather of C.A. Duuke on my grandmother's side. Her name was Minnie Duke. Many of our family members are buried in Oakland and Westview Cemetaries. I see where Mary and John Holbrook had 14 children. Can you give me any of their names or dates of birth? I would appreciate any help you can provide. All of my mother's side of the family have expired, and we have no other way of locating relatives. Thanks so much for your assistance!
