|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Houston County. My father, Tommie Johnson was laid to rest at Wesley Chapel. I still miss him. I would like to thank everyone who has left a flower on his memorial. He was a wonderful man. I am also the ggggrandaughter of Captain Samuel Harrison Bowen, and also James Jennings. Who both served our Country when the Tea Party first sprang into action. I Chair the Cemetery Preservation Committee of The Houston County Historical Commission located in the Courthouse Annex in Crockett. I am in the office on Monday. We are dedicated to surveying all the cemeteries in Houston County by photographing the stones.|
I believe very strongly in cemetery preservation. Cemeteries in most cases are the only history of those that came before us. Like rare books in a library once it's lost it's lost forever.My only intention is to create a HISTORICAL RECORDING of those who are "Gone, but not Forgotten" before their tombstones are lost forever. This is copied from a fellow graver: "Get out and photograph memorials while they are still readable, preserve those memories that are quickly fading."A while ago someone asked me why I do this, why do I spend time in cemeteries, taking pictures of graves, researching families that aren't my own, adding them here, linking and transferring, talking to people and finding out more. Ask me every day and I imagine I'd have a different answer every one, but in the end it boils down to love. I love what I do, and I love my family, and know that everyone was once loved, loved others, and just because they have died doesn't mean that they don't deserve the love of the living, even if it isn't a relative or friend.
FROM THE FAQS: How do I clean a headstone or grave marker?Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone.
FROM THE FAQS: If you want to add from an obituary: Newspapers represent a very good source of information as a public record. What we ask is that those who index and memorialize the deceased from newspapers and other 3rd party accounts do so with full respect of copyright, refrain from adding information about living people, and respond generously to the family of the deceased.
FROM THE FAQS: Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.
I have no crazy rules, My pictures are your pictures. Feel free to beg, borrow, steal with no intent to return. I take pictures of headstones out of kindness ... not for my ego or for the "numbers.
"Be kind to one another because - One day we will all be, 'just a name' etched in stone. "Nothing is ended until it is Forgotten."This is the day the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it! (and not spend the whole day working on Findagrave!)

Hi Carol Anne. The photo of Gerald Clarence Jones's headstone was taken at Taylor Cemetery at Gallatin in Cherokee County. Peggy Goodwin has left a flower note today on his memorial that might clear up some of the confusion caused by Find A Grave's merging of his two memorials. I hope this helps. Jim

Hi Ms. Carol,
This is Shanda, the great granddaughter of Maggie L. Hawkins,granddaughter of Alvertis Hawkins, buried in the Campbell Cemetery. I was wondering if you knew Ms. Maggie personally? I am trying to gather information about her only for my family tree. Anything would be appreciated. Thank you

|Bob White||RE: Hello|
I got your email. What I had done was sign into Fold 3, this I believe is ancestry and they do not
give anything free. I may be wrong but my experience with them says different. Thank you for helping me with this. I still haven't found that letter from Collen Watkins, but I know it is
here. I'll shoot you copy if I can find it. Bob
