Bio and Links
Bio Photo 2016 - 59 years old. Am interested in genealogy, which I have been studying seriously for about eight years now. I think FindAGrave is a great place to find more information about friends & family and create memorials for people to "visit", particularly for those who live a distance. Thanks for the opportunity to share & add to people's lives, as we remember those who are no longer with us - physically in this life, at least. "Those who do not remember their ancestors will never, themselves, do anything worth remembering."

Erasure of Monuments
I hope that I am not intrusive, but I was reading my own post to thank the photographer for taking a picture of my husband's grandfather's gravestone, when I saw your reply. It was regarding the erasure of monuments to your ancestors, founders of California. Is this the same thing that is happening around the country currently: the dismantling and destruction of historical figures? We recently suffered the same here in Santa Barbara. I attend the Old Mission, and 2 weeks ago, the statue of Father (now Saint) Junipero Serra was desecrated: his head was cut off and red paint poured over the torso. Very sad.

E. Sweeney
Edmund Randolph photo request, Cypress Lawn
He is buried in Laurel Hill Mound. This is a mass interment of remains from Laurel Hill/Lone Mountain, and there are no individual markers.

updating Mrs. Jane Dismukes
Re: Memorial# 42674723

Jane Dismukes was born Jane Porter. She married George Richardson Dismukes on 7 Oct 1815 in Davidson County Tenn. They had four children:

1--Georgia Ann Elizabeth Dismukes b. 7 August 1816 married James Madison Owens on 8 Sep 1836 in Sumner Co., TN. In the late 1840's they moved to Logan Co, KY before moving to De Soto & Tunica Co., MS about decade later. Georgia died on 22 March 1872 and is buried in Hernando Memorial Park in De Soto Co., MS

2--Sarah Richardson Dismukes b. 24 Jan 1822 married Garland B. Miller on 18 Jul 1840 in Sumner Co., TN. They lived briefly in Alabama before settling in Lincoln Co., TN. Sarah lost her husband in 1860, but her death information remains unknown.

3--Paul Porter Dismukes was born on 25 Mar 1826 in Sumner Co., TN. He married Elizabeth Gillespie Cantrell on 1 Jan 1846 in Sumner Co., TN. In the early 1850s they moved to Quincy Florida. By 1860 they had returned to Sumner County TN. where Paul patented his Clover & Grass Seed Gatherer. By 1880, Paul had moved to Tarrant Co., TX. He died there on 18 Mar 1884 (see Memorial# 90753423).

4--Mary Jane Dismukes was born 25 Aug 1828 and married John H. Donnell on Sep 1844 in Sumner Co., TN. The first three of their six known children were born in TN. By 1852, they had followed her aunt Ann Logan (Munroe) Dismukes to Quincy, Florida. When Mary lost her husband early in the Civil War, she might have returned to TN briefly to bury him before relocating with her sister in Tunica Co., MS. Mary's enumeration with her sister in 1880 was the last record found for her.

If you have questions or need clarification please feel free to contact me.

Caroline County History
Hello. My name is Benjamin Goldstein and I am an intern in the education department of the Maryland Historical Society. I am currently conducting preparatory research and gathering materials on the History of Caroline County, Maryland, for a partnership with public schools in that county that will be spearheading local history research projects. While researching the fascinating history of the relationship and duel between Andrew Jackson and Charles Dickson (who grew up in Caroline County, Maryland), I came across your statement on Find A Grave and was interested in your research. Would it be possible to ask you a few questions about your research and what resources you have used? If so please let me know at Thank you.

Holcombe, his Father Jackson Walter Holcombe, Jackson was the son of Joel Crawford and Catherine F Holley Stewart he was born in Talladega County,Alabama on October 4, 1855 and passed February 2,1935 in Cooper, Delta Co.

I have looked for pictures of them or their headstones of both Elizabeth and Catherine and Sarah but all I can find is the County and state.

Nice to hear from you and your welcome

RE: George W. Ashburn
Hi - thank you for very much for the reference. I suspected that the family could be buried where his wife was from - Macon - but I had not searched thoroughly enough for a record (I suppose there was a part of me that hoped he was buried here in Columbus). The online database for Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon shows that George, his wife, one confirmed daughter, and another likely daughter are buried in a lot there. I have updated my memorial accordingly, and again, I really appreciate your sending the newspaper link. Best wishes for the New Year - John

Gallaway Memorials
You sent me a suggestion per the below:

Find A Grave contributor DeoPatria has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Levi Gallaway.

Link to memorial:

Link to contributor profile:

Their suggestion:
This is a duplicate memorial of 29104882
please delete - you maintain both


I cannot complete the suggestion as requested for 2 reasons.

1) #125690422 is for Levi Tristram Gallaway, which I maintain. But #29104882 is for Matthew Campbell Gallaway which I also maintain.

2) There are duplicate memorials for both, but mine for Levi was created in 2014, with the duplicate by the other member created in 2015. Mine for Matthew was created in 2008 with the duplicate by another member created in 2012.
Therefore, I cannot delete their memorials.

However, FindAGrave does not allow duplicates, and priority is given to the earliest created memorial.

I will need to contact the duplicates to request that they delete theirs and if they refuse, request that FindAGrave admins address it.

But thanks for bringing it to my attention and hopefully the duplicates will be deleted soon.
