Bio and Links
I have recently retired and am working on history for the Arrasmith, Brewer, Roche, Samson, Spaulding and Shealy family names. Found a lot of information on Findagrave and am hoping to add information others are looking for.

My husband is retired Army with two tours in Vietnam. I served in the Air Force. Every service member I come across will receive a 'virtual flower' thanking them for their service.

Please use the 'Edit' tab for corrections.

Maggie Lena Shealy
I found an "In Memoriam" for Maggie Shealy in the Hearld and News (Newberry, SC) of 3/27/1917. It is simply signed "a Friend." It is beautiful. I thought you might like to see it. I have transcribed it and included a link to the source. This was also shared with the person who is maintaining this memorial here on F-A-G.

In Memoriam
Maggie Lena, the little daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Malcolm Shealy, died March 3, 1917, after a short illness of pneumonia and was buried at St Lukes the following day, service by the Rev. Cronk.
Maggie Lena was four years and eight months old and leaves to mourn her departure a devoted father and mother and two brothers and one sister. Our precious little girl will no more be with her friends and loved ones here, we hope to meet her on the other shore beyond the river of death. All that loving hands and medical skills could do was done but God saw fit to transplant her to a brighter world.
So, loved ones, you do not weep as one who has no hope, for you know where to find her, for your loss is her eternal gain. In our blindness we cannot understand it, but God knows best, and at last, when all of life’s lessons have been learned and we, too, have been called up higher, we shall see and understand. Dear ones, your home is sad and lonely since your precious little darling has been called to her blest home in heaven. Now we part in tears, on earth to meet no more, but we hope to meet in a fairer land. May the God of al peace, comfort the bereaved ones and help them to say, “Thy will be done.”
A Friend

Matt Whitehead
Oscar Z Whitehead
Hi- My name is Matt Whitehead. My Great Grandfather is Oscar Z. Whitehead. His grave has incorrectly been given the name Oscar E Whitehead. The headstone picture has Oscar Z Whitehead on it. He is buried next to my Grandmother and his former Wife, Pearla Mae Newton. (Pearla Mae re-married after Oscar's death.) Oscar Z Whitehead and Pearla Mae Whitehead had one child, Melton Mark Whitehead, My Father, who is buried at Memory Hill Cemetery in Dothan, AL.

BTW- I have the original deed where Zeno bought a burial plot in the Ashford City Cemetery for $15 on Oct. 11 1923- evidently for his new wife Pearla Mae. The Mayor of Ashford at that time was G.E. Jackson (he signed the deed in pencil). Perla Mae would have been in her early twenties. Evidently, back in those days they got their arrangements taken care of very early on!

Can you please change Oscar E. Whitehead to Oscar Z. Whitehead. Thanks!

Karen has allot of research even back to the civil war. Where property was by an Casino. We've been to many of the cemeteries. Karen just met with a family member and it looks like either grandma line goes back 600 years or vise or versa.or the Samson line. We are going to have to really update all the Samson's girls and put it all together for everyone. thank you.thank your husband for his service.

Sgt Wilson E. Gamble
greetings from Nijmegen in Holland.
Was checking the site for information for the following named soldier. On the site I found a picture of his grave and you took that picture.

His name is Sgt Wilson E. Gamble and is buried in the Webb City Cemetery

Sergeant Gamble was a litter patient and died in a crash of a C-47

After his death he was buried in the temporary GELA cemetery in Sicily. I am doing research about that invasion of July 1943 and want to write a book about this cemetery.

I would like to use the picture you took of his grave, of course you will be credited.

Do you perhaps know the location and/or circumstances where he was killed, if you family of him, do you perhaps have his picture from the time before he was killed, or his grave at Gela.
