Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy work for over 25 years with brief intervals of inactivity when my life took different turns.

I love going to all the old cemeteries in South Georgia marveling at some of the old tombstones, some of which are quite elaborate and expensive even for that period of time, and thinking about how our ancestors lived. Since my husband and I shared so many ancestors (including at least three great-great-great grandfathers), it was an easy task getting information about our "kinfolk".

When my husband of nearly 40 years passed away in 2002 my enthusiasm for genealogy waned somewhat and I did little research for a couple of years; then I found the FindAGrave website and entered a few memorials. I absolutely love entering memorials and posting pictures of tombstones for so many of the South Georgia cemeteries which I have helped "survey" over the years thus enabling so many people access to this information. I especially like being able to link families and consider this one of the most important features of FindAGrave.

I believe when entering genealogy information one should always be open to criticism in order to get information as accurate as possible -- especially when it is posted on the internet for so many thousands of people to view. Though complete accuracy is so hard to achieve I will always strive for accuracy.....should anyone find incorrect information on any of my memorials please do not hesitate to advise. However, please keep in mind that other contributors have possibly given me incorrect information.

Hi Barbara,

Thanks for permission to use your photograph.

Also, I do not have any info on Allen E Taylor's parents. I don't have any info on either Sarah Frances or Allen Taylor that isn't available on However, I will put this in my 'Pending' folder and if I run across something later, I will let you know.

Thanks again. I appreciate.

Memorial 52171298 Wesley Chapel Methodist Church Cemetery
Hi Barbara

May I have your permission to use the photo you took of the cemetery where my cousin Sarah Frances Taylor is buried in my family tree? I really appreciate the hard work you have done for me and others like me who cannot. These photos, which I use in the Death and Burial section of my relative's profile page (not the profile photo) add a lot to otherwise barren pages of forms and statistics.

Thank you so much,

Carol Barber Hudson

You sent me a note saying that I have her parents wrong. Could you please give me their Find A Grave #'s so the error can be corrected?

I created the cross-reference from Mrs J. Connell as explained in the bio. Thanks, but I think the cross reference is more helpful than confusing.

Lelia Cemetery, Colquitt County Jesse Lott year of birth is listed as 1885. I have in my record he was born in 1883, and a recently posted picture of the tombstone reads 1883. You must look closely as it is difficult to read, but the year of birth seems clear enough. Please correct. Thank you.
