Bio and Links
I have been doing family genealogy for quite some time and have visited numerous cemeteries to gather information for my records. When I ran across Find-A-Grave, I realized what a wonderful concept it was. I'm happy to volunteer to photograph graves; it's just the older I get, the slower I get. But it gives great satisfaction to make sure cemeteries are photographed and the information available for free access to those who cannot make the trip to photograph those graves themselves.

I live in Southwest Georgia, am retired from the Colquitt County Baptist Association after 15 years of service there, and continue to be involved in a number of volunteer projects.

New Elm Cemetery
First I would like to thank you & all other volunteers who give time & effort to help others. Find A Grave is a wonderful venue - it has helped me so much with my research. It would not exist without people like you. THANKS

I would like to ask if you wil continue the list for New Elm Cemetery. I am very interested in the Striplin (Stripling) family - my grandparents (Ephraim & Allowee Nelson Striplin) as well as Boyd & Effie Nelson Striplin. Ephraim & Boyd are brothers & Allowee (Allie) & Effie are sisters.Also Ephraim's twin brother, Enoch Striplin & wife Belle, are buried there all close to each other.

My appreciation again for your work. Ann C. Davis

Needham Hess Holland is my great grandfather. Thank you so very much for adding the beautiful photo of his grave. Without your help I would have never seen his grave. The photo and the memorial bio are correct however the name is incorrect. I requested a change in the name and was insulted by the manager of the memorial. I have created an accurate memorial to him. Would you please add your photos to his new memorial. Thank You LSL

Thank you so much for taking his picture. I thought he was buried with his wife but not sure.
With your permission, I would like to create a memorial for his wife and use the picture you took for William.
