Bio and Links
Bio Photo I photograph and document the history of the Dunwoody, GA area in addition to my own Nantucket, Quaker, and Mayflower Hx. This includes photographing markers in these Cemeteries which are listed in alphabetical order: Bennett Rainey Family, Eidson Family, New Hope, North Atlanta Memorial (aka Laurelwood), Powers Family, and Stephen Martin. The graveyards I photograph are Ebenezer Primitive Baptist Church and Winters Chapel Methodist Church.

I research the earlier families of Dunwoody including but not limited to those who benefited from the Land Lottery, many of whom with descendants in Dunwoody and Sandy Springs, GA today. Many of those who inherited this land are documented in Memorials here on Find a Grave.

Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”

Sgt. Clyde Thomason

Sgt. Clyde Thomason (1914-1942) was from the Atlanta area. He was killed in WWII. He won a posthumous Medal of Honor and is interred at Arlington National Cemetery.

Parents Sara (1879-1917) and Clyde Sr. (1879-1939)

My grandmother's maiden name was Mary Pearl Thomason (1905-1980) Sibling James Monroe Thomason (1896-1933).

Their mother was Rosa Thomason (1876-1921). They lived in Cedartown. Rosa was married to Robert B. Thomason. They divorced in 1907.

I am retired from the Marine Corps. I am very interested in finding out if I am related to Sgt. Thomason through my Grandmother Pearl Thomason Dowdy and GGM Rosa Thomason.

It would seem probable that there is a connection. I can't anything definite one way or the other.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Charles Baker & Rosa Emaline Pope Baker
Hi Chryse, I don't know where Sallie Swann Baker Cheek is buried. Can I be nosy and ask why Dunwoody Preservation Trust is interested? Sallie's paternal grandfather was the only father figure in my great-grandfather's life. I made contact with the Australian branch of the family by posting info on Cobb Co genweb site, solving a mystery for the Australian branch.

She does not have a tombstone. She lays to the right of her husband. I have attached a photo showing the spot.

RE: Typo on 133948862

I noticed the difference in the funeral home records and the first name entry & they were different, so checked their monument. Glad I could help--you are most welcome.

RE: Lon Baker
The stone at Eidson cemetery says LON with the birth date of 1870... Several years ago Lon or Alonzo's granddaughter asked me to have him a headstone made and I did so using dates that I had at my disposal such as census records death certificate, etc. I did also have his proper name placed on the stone not just "LON". which was a nickname. I was unsure of the burial spot so I was given permission at the time by Andrew Burnahms (Lons half brother) family to place it in Winters Chapel.. After much more research and findings with the connection to the Warnock, Smith, Dove etc families I did indeed isolate him as the same person buried at Eidson so I did indeed move the newest marker paid for by Peggy Elliott Alonzo "LON" bakers granddaughter at the foot of the proper resting place of Alonzo P Baker. Hope this helps.

Lon Baker
Thanks for your message. I did indeed place the marker in Winters Chapel for "Lon" Alonzo P Baker and I was the one who indeed did move it across the street to the Eidson Cemetery when I found that they were the same person. I also was told there had to be a family connection to be buried in the Eidson cemetery and he is connected through the Smith, Wood, Dove etc families. His Mother married a Warnock and is buried in the New Hope / Dunwoody cemetery. Ada Baker Warnock. Her husbands first wife Dollie Smith Warnock is also in Eidson cemetery.

Lucy T Henry
I am very familiar with the Carrollton City Cemetery. The cemetery has been physically surveyed twice in the past 40 years and there is no listing for Lucy nor is there any family members buried there with any unmarked graved noted. I am contacting the creator of her memorial to see what documentation that they used to create her memorial. I also have scanned the 1879 year of newspaper articles and see no mention of her death. At this point, I do not see any proof for Lucy's burial in the Carrollton City Cemetery.

Thank you for trying to get a headstone photo for Fannie Lee,if you could just take a photo of the the area where she is buried if there is no headstone that would be nice.
