Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the spring of 2010, I became interested in finding out more about my father's family. My g-g-g-g grandfather, John P Lyle, settled in Paulding Co, Georgia, sometime before 1840. It is thought that he received land in the 1832 land lottery of the Cherokee lands. After working on the memorials of my immediate LYLE family members, I started looking for the graves of my mother's family and then extended family. I spend the majority of my time looking for graves in Paulding County and the counties that surround Paulding, such as Haralson, Polk, Bartow, Carroll, Douglas, Cobb and Cherokee. This is a very rewarding way to fill in some of those extra hours I now have as a retired person.
Finally, I want to acknowledge and give credit to my brother, Thomas Edward 'CC' Lyle, and to my 1st cousin once removed, Dianne Jean Eberhardt, for allowing me to use their genealogy research information in several of my FAG memorials.

Are you related to Annie Stalnaker or did you just transcribe her into Find A Grave?
She is my maternal great grandmother.

On November 3rd, 2014 you added a picture of a registration card to my great grand fathers "find a grave" page. I was wondering if there is a relation?

RE: Harriett Ann Forrester Rakestraw
It was my pleasure to photograph Ms Rakestraw's headstone. The stone is a little weathered but still looks well.
I hope you have an enjoyable Easter.

Joel Anderson Haden
I noticed that you entered a death certificate for Joel Anderson Haden who is located at Rosehill Cemetery in Macon. Are you of any relation? He is my g-g-grandfather

my brother found the pelkman/stack wedding certificate which states marriage in 1921 so keep it as is. don't know why she wrote 1922 unless it was an anniversary photo.

my maternal side all from north Evanston. all went to Evanston high school. surnames Schreiber, stordeur, nelson. any familiar????? I live 10 minutes away from Joliet so I extend the same coutesty to you...if you need anything from around northern Illinois let me know. I will look into my tree to see if I need anything from Georgia. I found that the Houstons received their land in Georgia from being in the revolutionary war. I will probably have to take a trip down there.cathie
