Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Atlanta metro area and became a photo volunteer in December 2012. I truly enjoy helping others find their loved ones' graves. In the process, I learn about some fascinating people!

My blog, Adventures in Cemetery Hopping, documents my grave hunting adventures. I usually publish on Fridays. I also have a Facebook page by the same name.

You are welcome to use any photo I have posted and if you could give me credit, I would appreciate it.

Also, let me know if you would like me to transfer a memorial to you if you are a relative or close friend.

If you would like to replace the photo, that would be great...

RE: Theresa Bauer
Hi, Traci. Thanks for doing that! I have a few other photos of the memorial and gravesite I will add. Not sure why I have never done that. It is very hard to get a good photo of that memorial. The glass is not sealed well and it is usually covered with condensation on the inside. Or there is a glare off the glass from the sun or it is in the shadow of the box. The "note" they mention is faded from the sun (door of memorial faces the west) and impossible to read. I am not sure that the man they mention that takes care of it comes any more. I will check on it and see what kind of shape it is in. I will add some information to her memorial. I have seen that article before, but thanks for refreshing things for me. I will get the memorial up to date.

RE: Mary Barnett Fall
Thank you for letting me know her burial location. I really appreciate it.

I sent you a request to link her to her husband. Once you do this I'll remove the duplicate memorial.

FYI--If you want the words on the tombstone to show better in photos, spray the tombstone with water then using a soft bristle brush (not wire) brush the stone gently. Don't do this though if the stone is crumbling or falling apart. The brushing will make the letters stand out better when you take a digital photo.

Mayson Creek Cemetery Location
Mayson Creek is on Bankhead Hwy, turn right off Fulton Industrial, at Bolton Road - - it is located on the left. There is no parking area. We tried to park at Grove Park - - we were planning to walk over to the cemetery, but it has become a hang-out for the homeless and drug dealers, so we were not able to tour the cemetery. I wish they would install an entrance to the cemetery, but I'm sure that would invite visitors who may destroy the cemetery. Don't know if there is a solution unless you could ask for police escort. I was so disappointed that we could not explore the cemetery and make pictures of the headstones locate there.

Grace Bell
Grace Bell died recently and was buried in the Rogers-Bell cemetery. I am unable to visit the cemetery at this time. Can you check and see if she was buried beside Thomas Randall Bell? Sincere thanks, Wesley T. Martin

RE: James Meradith
Thanks for the update. I have no idea how that would have gotten there. I have never been to that cemetery. Very strange.

RE: Irwin Claar
Traci, glad to help! Are you, by chance, related to any of the "Swan" family members from Beaver? My father graduated from Beaver HS with a Vera Swan. Just curious!

Regards, Julie
