Bio and Links
I live in middle Ga. and enjoy spending time searching for those out of the way gravesites and researching in general. At times I will post information as well as pictures. There are some gravesite locations that I had to "scratch and claw" to find and the clean up was back breaking. And I'm sure like many other folks I've spent many hours walking,searching and taking pics.

Rowell Cemetery, Musella, GA
Greetings -
I am a descendant of William Edward Rowell who is buried in the Rowell Cemetery in Musella, Crawford Co, GA. I saw the picture you uploaded of his headstone. I tried to locate the cemetery and found a dirt path leading into a wooded area off Oak Grove Church Road (near the intersection with Hopewell Rd). The path has a cable across it about 100 yards off the main road I did not venture any further - My question is - Am I in the right vicinity? There is no description of the location of the cemetery on FindAGrave, only GPS and a satellite mapping. Can you give me any info on this cemetery and if it is accessible? And is it agreeable with the land owner for descendants to come onto the property (if you know).
Many Thanks,
KPeters (5th great-grandson of William Edward Rowell, FindAGrave ID #73727213)

As far as I know, you can still access this cemetery. I don't remember exactly where it is. I believe it is in Centerville on the end of a dead end street.

You have posted a map on Mickelberry Merritt's profile. It makes a reference to a house, is that his home, does it still stand?

RE: William Carlos Headstone
It should be OK, if the vandals don't start their crap in Carlos cem. I need to get a few for those CSA in Cedar Ridge, but it seems there's always something else to do.

Keep up the good deeds and have a great day,

William Carlos Headstone
Hey, Mike, sorry couldn't make the Headstone setting for William, but looks as if you and friends have done a GREAT job. I'm sure his descendants are proud. Thanx for all you do and have a great day.

RE: 14th Georgia Infantry Regiment roster
Hello, M.T.
Hope all are well.
My cousin Robert George Williams in Fredericksburg, MD had
a researcher double check the Confederate Veteran data on Reuben Williams who had a leg amputated at Spotsylvania.
Interestingly, he found that Reuben was living in Bibb County, Georgia (Macon), in 1892, and moved back to Monroe County, Georgia (Forsyth) in 1896 and refiled for a Pension. No further information has been found on his death, or burial. I personally have done extensive research on nearly every plausible cemetery in Macon and Forsyth, including the Confederate Cemeteries to no avail. His death information eludes us. I can only assume he expired at some point after 1896 in Monroe County, GA. It is interesting that the DAR Cabiness Chapter awarded him the Southern Cross of Honor in 1910. Hopefully, this info will provide some help in locating his date of death and gravesite.
Thanks kindly for all of your help.
Cordial regards,
Lane Williams, Evans, GA

RE: 14th Georgia Infantry Regiment roster
Good morning, Mike.
Hope all is well in 'Middle Georgia.' My spouse and I lived in Macon for many years before we moved to Evans, GA. I attended school, and some college in Macon, and some of our
family is still there. Just thought I would let you know my history, and the fact that I did research on the Williams family at the Washington Library on Microfilm. Fortunately, I had the luxury of meeting a one Henry Williams of Macon, who knew where my Great Grandfather, A.J. Williams, was buried at Parker's Cemetery, and my Great-Great Grandfather, Reuben R. (Robert ?) Williams, was buried with a number of our klan at Midway Baptist Church in Lizella, GA. Per your query concerning your query on the Reuben Williams born in Monroe County (ca. 1840 - 1841) to Jethro Williams, I have never seen a middle initial or name for this particular person. I did read in a UDC publication published in the early 1900's at the Washington Library where Reuben was awarded the Cross Of Honor (apparently as were all Confederate Veterans) when he was a member of the Quitman Guards Camp #1122. Unfortunately, I did not record the specific publication date.
Hopefully my response here is not too wordy; albeit I hope that any data may be helpful with your expertise.
Have a good week, Mike!
Kindest regards,
Lane Williams
