Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related.

I volunteer at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, and am working on photo-documenting the whole cemetery. At this point, I prefer not to transfer memorials for this cemetery (other than mandatory transfers, of course) because my research is ongoing. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

NOTE: Obituaries are a wonderful source of information, but findagrave has rules about how they may be used. You can always glean facts from them for the bio. If they are out of copyright, or if you hold the copyright, you can transcribe them. Regardless of who has the copyright, you are not supposed to post them as a photograph - regardless of whether you scanned it, took a screen shot, or downloaded it from another website. Please feel free to send me obit text via the edit function, and I will use the info to add to the bio. Obits posted as photos will be removed, and it just ends up wasting your time.

RE: Susanna Landis
Good Morning L. Ferree,
Susanna Brubaker Landis was the daughter of Abraham (Herr) Brubaker and Elizabeth (Brubaker) Brubaker. Not only were Susanna's paternal and maternal parents Brubakers, but her maternal grandparents were both Brubakers, as well. Her maternal gr-grandparents were both Brubakers, as well. I am attempting to add the person's mother's maiden name as a middle name, so as to help genealogists connect family lines more easily. Thank you for checking.

RE: Andersons in Oakland
Yes, we transferred it as he is a CSA veteran. We do not retain the memorials to those men, but transfer them to member of the UDC.

Thank you very much for the note. I did not realize the memorial was marked like that. I evidently made a mistake at the time it was posted. Itís been corrected. Thanks again!!

The information on Mr Graves comes from "Images of America: Historic Oakland Cemetery" by Tevi Taliaferro and "The Historic Oakland Cemetery of Atlanta: Speaking Stones" by Cathy Kaemmerlen.
Those were two of the sources I used.

Thanks... It was probably the newspaper but I will go back and find it. Either that, or the Trinity I spend a pretty insane amount of time on that place doing one thing or another !

You are welcome. I'm glad you like the close up picture. I thought you might. It's a very nice picture.
