On February the 4th we finally moved back into our house. Still waiting on furniture as the lists are long and delivery is slow.
Glad to be back home
On August 13, 2016 our home was one of the thousands of homes that flooded in Baton Rouge. Louisiana.
We are slowly recovering from the flood. Should be back in our home by January. Of all things doors and trim can not be found, but with 40,000 homes damaged I'm not surprised!!
I will be checking FAG weekly, so it may take a little while to get request done.
Researching the following Surnames:
Allgood, Amberson, Anderson, Ayers, Barron, Brockman, Campbell, Cleckler, Coleman, Decker, Ganey, Gober, Gilley, Gazaway/Gassaway, Gunnels, Hardwick/ Hartwick, Hill, Hulsey, King, Kelsey, Marsh, Maddox, McMillen, Moore, Pendergrass,
Randolph, Roberson, Rogers, Raper, Stewart, Tomlin, Toone, Turner, Ward, Webb, Westbrook, Wortham.
PLEASE send any additions or corrections to me using "EDIT" or "SUGGEST A CORRECTION" on the memorial site. I will be happy to add any information and relationship links for you, please furnish appropriate link numbers. For all correspondence please include your member name and #.
When we do a memorial one of the choices is Unknown for Burials & Cremations. Everyone no matter if they have a physical grave or only dates in a Bible deserve a Memorial.
I will link any memorial I care for and will be happy to add a memorial for someone.
If their grave site is found in the future we can move the memorial to that cemetery or if someone adds a memorial to the correct cemetery, we can delete the duplicate.
I will no longer transfer memorials to people who have not been a member of FAG for at least SIX months; there are too many people signing on wanting memorials and never bother to care for them. It took me almost a year to get my father's memorial transferred due to a peson not signing in and checking his memorials.
This does not apply to direct generations.
I grew up with Decoration Day (2nd Sunday in May) going to all the cemeteries were the family members were and the last one would be Dad's grave in Oneonta, Alabama. Visiting the family plots and placing roses on all the graves. Mom would work on the flowers for days. Afterwards, we would go to "Little Joe's" restaurant and have dinner, they served "Family Style". For those in other areas of the country this is like sitting down at grandma's house with bowls of food set on the table and everyone shares. Some of my most wonderful memories are setting around talking to the family, where they lived, what was their name, and stories. I miss Decoration Day, but FAG helps to fill that place in my heart.
My love is Genealogy and that is why I do FAG.
FAG Guidelines for Transfers are: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Please if you are related email me, and explain connections.
Please if you are related email me, and explain connections.
FAG Guidelines: Bulk surname requests should not be made and will not be honored.
A Find A Grave Virtual Cemetery is essentially a collection of names from the Find A Grave database. As a Find A Grave contributor, you can build Virtual Cemeteries to group listings in whatever way you would like. For example, you might make a 'Smith Family Virtual Cemetery' where you would place all of the members of your Smith family tree. Other examples: 'My Favorite Actors' or 'Memorials I Visit Often'. A VIRTUAL CEMETERY HAS NO RELATION TO A REAL CEMETERY! People listed in your VIRTUAL cemeteries can be buried in many different REAL cemeteries. You can add any name in the Find A Grave database to the Virtual Cemeteries you create and you can choose to make your Virtual Cemeteries visible to the visitors of your Find A Grave Contributor Profile page.
If you have something that needs attention in a timely manner please email me.

|T. Carter Ross||RE: Angeline Nora Langford Wilkerson|
Thanks, Amby, that's awesome.
|T. Carter Ross||Angie N. Wilkerson (#7221856)|
Thank you for your work at maintaining Find a Grave. I was wondering if you had any more details about Angie N. Wilkerson (#7221856). I believe she may be the sister of Susan M. Hunter (#7221563), who is buried in the same cemetery. Hunter is the daughter of Josiah D. Langford and Damaris Holcombe and the 1850 census has Josiah, Damaris, Susan M., Angie N. (and their other siblings) listed together. There's a Troup Co. marriage certificate from 1858 linking Angie N. Langford to Lee Wilkerson.
My great-grandfather's mother was Josiah and Damaris's daughter (Elizabeth Langford). From what I can piece together, it seems she was born shortly after my gggfather (Franklin A. Shaw) was born. According to my grandfather's recollections, Franklin was sent to live with his aunts Angie Nora Langford (Mrs. Lee Wilkerson) and Sarah S---ina Langford. I don't find on Find A Grave any other Wilkersons buried at this cemetery, and haven't found anything in the census records for Lee Wilkerson and Angie.
If you have any connecting information, I would welcome the opportunity to learn from you.
|Dean Gibbs||RE: Clarkson|
Gotcha..I had forgotten that I pointed this out...I did no think he was a son...
|Dean Gibbs||RE: Thanks|
Is this about Jerome Clarkson?
|Cheri Swanson Calhoun||RE: Mamie|
I don't. I have found nothing. I believe he died in 1899 or 1900 but I'm not sure. I know their last child was born in 1899 in Georgia. I have a 1900 census that shows Naoma being a widow.
|Cheri Swanson Calhoun||RE: Mamie Lee Jones|
My Grandmother Oma Was named after Naoma.John also named one of his daughters Mamie. If you go to my memorials you will find all of them there.
|Cheri Swanson Calhoun||RE: Mamie Lee Jones|
yes but the names aren't spelled correctly. Its Darrell W Jones and Naoma Posey Jones.
|Cheri Swanson Calhoun||Mamie Lee Jones Amberson|
Believe I am related to her. Do you know if she had a brother by the name of John Harmony Jones. He was my Great Grandfather.
