Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a wife and stay at home mom. I started researching my genealogy in 1996. Using Find A Grave to locate some of my ancestors has been very helpful. I have just begun working on linking my family.

A big "THANK YOU" to all the Find-A-Grave volunteers who have taken tombstone pictures for me. My goal is to get a tombstone picture of all my relatives and with the help of FAG I am well on my way. Thanks so much.

I am happy to transfer any memorials I have created that are not within my extended family. Please use the "EDIT" tab on the memorial to make your request.


Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder as you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Find A Grave RECOMMENDATIONS
When you call have the (dod) Date of Death on hand.

After you get the plot, lot, range location, ask three questions:

1. Is anyone else buried in the plot;
2. Are there unused full body or cremant spots available;
3. Who owns the plot
Remember you are the only resource that can make your loved one visible again. And thatís by simply calling the cemetery office and letting me know. You wonít regret it.

Father of Martin Jones b. 1815
Hi Johna, You had requested that I link Jesse Smith Jones with Martin Jones, and that he be linked as Martin's father. This is incorrect. The two men were brothers ... both were sons of James Bell Jones (1770-1841) and Sarah H. Smith. I know nothing of James Bell Jones' family line, but he died in 1841 at Sardis, Panola County, Mississippi and left a will which mentioned Jesse as a son as well as Martin. James B. Jones had 12 children all together.

I will have to deny your request to link Jesse to Martin as his father. The two men were only 8 years apart in age.

Hope to correspond with you more in the future about our mutual Jones family links.

Regards, Pat Iverson

Jesse Smith Jones #143948975
Hello Johna ... Jesse Smith Jones was married to Sarah McCoy Jones (#71717447). On her memorial you left flowers and said you were a 3rd great granddaughter. Jesse was my 3rd great uncle, a brother of Martin Jones. Both of them were sons of James Bell Jones (1770-1841) and his wife, Sarah Smith Jones (b. 1781- before 1841). I am trying to unearth the parents of James Bell Jones and have been stuck on who they might have been for years. Have you done any research into this family of Joneses? Looking forward to knowing more of what you might have discovered. If you are interested, the grave of Jesse's brother, Martin Jones, is in the Rose Hill Cemetery at Sardis, Panola County, Mississippi. I have a picture of him on his memorial page.

Thanks in advance for answering me and for any insight you might have.

Memorial # 67381252 Van Buren Bailey
Johna,

He was actually Martin Van Buren Bailey and his wife's middle name was Sarah, although some records show her as Sarah Sally Smith. His sister, Sue Edna Bailey Akin, was my grandmother. His parents, Claiborne Lee Bailey and Alice Elizabeth Pogue Bailey are buried in Pisgah Cemetery, Hampshire.

Thanks for all your work on Find A Grave.

Uncle Jimmy
Greetings,
Perhaps you can help me.I found you thru one of the Cooper's you labeled "Uncle Jimmy".My Great-Grand-Father was Andrew Jackson Cooper allegedly born n Arkansas or Oklahoma.he was a twin and had a twin bro. my G'Ma said the other brother was named Jackson Cooper which I think I found @ Cooper's Cemetery.Ancestry records show that his father was also named Andrew Jackson Cooper and his mother was Nancy (?) Cooper.any idea where she may be buried and what can u tell me about the family history? Members of my family thought that George Washington Cooper was his twin bro. to Andrew but I think they r wrong and what my G'ma said was right.she said her father could not speak plain English and that he would call a guitar 'cat Fuzzy'.she said he was also arrested becuz he was thot to be a spy.He also had a sister,Alice Whitfield married to Ben Whitfield but I can't find where she is buried.G'Ma called her Aunt Allie.I think she to might be buried n Caney Cemetery.she said her father was an alcoholic and when he left their mother,Nora he told her n plain or broken English,"I'm leaving it all up to you Mah!".One of her brothers went w/him...I don't know if it was Ben or Elmer....think it was Elmer.he is also buried next to another son,Marion Farris Cooper.Yes I am interested in photos(I have none),family trees,if any and there is also a Q. of any indian on that side of the family,some suggests Choctaw but we can't prove or disprove if its the right Andrew J. Cooper.I am Cherokee Indian on my father's side(Farrow-Crow).His mother was a Goldie Crow.we get our indian lineage thru her father Charley/charlie Crow.~Liz

Just googled it

Plus those photos the other guy posted look so odd.

Wetumpka, Cantrell Gilliand Memorial Garden, Elmore Co, Alabama, Southeast USA, USA, World

http://www.ourfamtree.org/location.php/eid/1037854/all/0

Is there more than one Cantrell Gilliand Memorial Garden?

I just have asked for proof that there is a memorial/cenotaph and am not getting any from anyone.

Thanks
Blue
