Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Tifton, GA. I'm retired from the US Army and all of my other side jobs, too; however, I do stay busy doing all of my wife's "honey-do's", Civil War relic hunting, family genealogy research, and taking photos of cemeteries and graves for family and friends on

I have been researching all sides of my family ancestors; Benefield's of south Georgia, Eunice's of south Georgia, Willis' of south Georgia, Lane's of south Georgia and Virginia, and Layne's of Okalahoma and Virginia.

Also, my wife and I have been researching her side of the family for her and her sons to include the Miles-Malanowksi family in Ohio & Europe, and the Williams-Middleton-Lane families of middle and southwest Georgia.

If you have any links and/or suggestions on what I have posted, please let me know how I can help.

Hi Tom,

Would you transfer William Douglas Sr. to me. I found some more info that would help the Bio. I even found his wife. Her name was Rebecca. Found her name on a Brunswick County, VA Court Order. Thank you.

David Jackson Roland
Are you by any chance related to the Rolands? I noticed that the memorial mentioned his parents' names and wondered how you found the name David. I have been looking for information on Handy Roland for years. i am a direct descendant.

1st Lt. James Lane
Will you add Willie Edwin Lane, my grandfather, to the children of 1st Lt James Lane, buried at Rawls Cemetery, Colquitt, GA?

Willie was the one child who lived. His mother was Martha Hornsby, the 2nd wife of James Lane.

For info look up Willie Edwin Lane on findagrave.
