I currently do not add memorial that are not family related. It will be a few years before I am retired and have time to add any others. I will take photos and GPS by request for those that live out of town or not able to do so.

Sallie & Jefferson Davis
I found the markers for both of them. Sallie's is in pieces and the last name portion is missing but the marker is next to Jefferson so I believe it is hers. Memorials are 86350382 and 110087202
I thought you might want to update memorials

RE: Hiram H. Montgomery
He was added to Laurelwood from a list comprised of confederate soldiers buried here. The link to his wife must have been an edit sent to me because I did not link her myself.

RE: John Lowe
William "Uncle Bill" Berry Lowe was Hattie Lowe Cox's brother. Hattie was my great grandmother. They also had a brother named John Wesley Lowe. Not of course the Sallie's first husband. They were the children of William Berry Lowe and were born in Wadesboro, NC. They all moved here the early 1900's to work in the mills.

I often wondered who and how the John Wesley Lowe buried with William Berry were connected to the family. Then John Wesley's daughter-in-law told me the story.

Thanks for the note.

Thank you for the contact. The information which I received was from the Patriot Guard Riders, who escorted the body to the cemetery. I was not part of that mission so cannot confirm, but that is where the directions went.
You would have to find the funeral home, or do a Death Certificate to determine which is correct.

John Lowe
Would very much like to share information about your John Lowe. He is buried on William Berry Lowe's plot or vice verse. William (Bill) was my great grandmother's brother. He (William) also had a brother named John Wesley Lowe who is also buried in Hollywood. Any information you could share would be appreciated.

David Larkin Thornburg Find A Grave Memorial# 100393173
Hi Robert,
I think they were linked through the other David S. Thornburg, because I have the correct father on my family tree (David Sylvanus Thornburg 1873-1952) - I changed the bio to link the correct father. Thanks for the "Heads-Up".

sara thornburg' husband
I added 76046741 as her husband but there was no way to take off the other person who is her husbands brother cause I evidently didn't put him on and he is connected under someone elses memorial, Good Luck straightening them out. You'll have to send a message to the caretaker of the other memorial probably. BJ
