My name is Chris Allen. I am 33 years old and a life long resident of Habersham County Georgia. I got involved in Find a Grave while searching for information on a relative via the internet. My Dad and I are now roaming the cemeteries together on the weekends. This is a great way to find out where you came from. Anything I can do to help anyone don't hesitate to ask. I am researching the following names Allen, Edwards, Sosebee, Holcomb, Chastain to name a few. Mostly in Habersham and White County Georgia. If you would like for me to transfer or edit a memorial that I have created please don't hesitate to ask. It is my goal to get these memorial's in the hands of family.|

Chris, I'm just seeing your message from July. Needless to say I seldom check my AOL email account. Thank you for the info on Sampson E. Sosebee.
|Eleanor Morrison Lawson||Morrisons and extended families|
Chris, thank you so much for your service to others thru Find A Grave. You are the greatest to be helping so many others in this way. I have been on my journey (with genealogy) since the 80's and still going strong at 87. My age and health won't allow me to visit cemeteries so I am fortunate to have Find A Grave. God bless you in your work. I hope you won't mind my making copies of your photos for my Ancestry and Family Tree Maker family files. I am trying my best to leave as much family info on the files as I can so that my descendants and others who wish can see their heritage.

I can't thank you enough for the photos that you took for the Bowman family buried at Mt. Zion. The pictures look great. I appreciate the time, effort, and gas that you put into fulfilling my request.

THANKS Chris for the transfers. I am not related to the Kennedy's @ Providence. My dad is buried @ Bethlehem along w/ my grandparents and uncle. They were originally from Oakwood and Suwanee in Hall and Gwinnett. My grandfather came to Clarkesville when North GA Tech was opened and taught there until his retirement. They lived just right down road from school. The Wootens are my mothers side and thay were born and raised in Habersham and Rabun counties and lived all their life there. If I come across some of them I have a question about I will be in touch. Good to have somebody close to check things out. I don't get up that way much. Thanks for ALL your help!!!

The land the cemetery was started on belonged to John King whose marker you photographed. He lived in a log cabin on the property as a retreat fromhis family. He died on March 25, 1842. There was a private cemetery called the The King Family burial grounds started in 1826. John's wife sold the property to her sons John Wilburn King and Peter King on 10-27-1848. They sold it the next month to a wealthy Plantation oener from Savannah for a suummer home whose name was George Jones Pollock. The property was named "Woodlands". The cemetery history is described in a book by Carl D King called "Woodlands" and in the book "King Family history" copywrite 1972. At the requesst of the King family he set aside a section of land for avprivate cemetery at the time he bought the property where the King Family burial grouds were located, The King family had what was called The King burial grouds and in Nov 1848 Pollock set aside this private burial groud in Nov 1848. Burials began by the King family in 1826 and continued to November 1848. Burials then continued through the present. The King requested that the area where their residence snd cemetery was located be given to Rev William Epps who was at that time minister of Grace Episcopal Church in Clarksville. Pollack agreed and Rev Epps built a church there cslled Chapel of the Holly Cross. It was adjacent to the King Family burial grounds. Burials continued up to the present day. Due to it's location it has been plundered for several years and there are many unmarked graves. Early burials were sometimes just fields stones. Sometimes there was crude carvings on the field stone. All of the old field stone were stolen back in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

|al ray||RE: Allen photos|
My pleasure. The cemetery is pretty much at the intersection of Gene Nix Rd. and Sandy Flats Rd. Follow 115 west from Cleveland Sq., about 1.5 miles out is Town Creek Rd., take that to g
Gene Nix (about 3 miles). Turn left on Gene Nix, when you go through the intersection (a stop sign) pull over to your right. There's a gated, but not locked, gravel road up to the cemetery. I just parked at the gate and walked up. Good luck, Al Ray
