Got in the habit of snapping tombstone photos wherever I go.

The funniest tombstone I ever saw had the inscription, "I told you I was sick."

Mary Skinner Franklin ; Find A Grave Memorial# 68184216
THANK YOU! I've been searching for Mary, who was my 3rd great Aunt, for a number of years. I have only recently started using Find A Grave as a research tool and am thrilled to have found this memorial. May I ask why you created this memorial? Are you family perhaps? Would you mind if I use the photo in my family tree?
Again my thanks.

Homer Blackmon Died 1860

You have the inscription of this grave, and I believe this is my cousin's relative. Have found that he died intestate in Fulton County, and names his brother James, mother Elizabeth and sister Lavinia Elkins.

My cousin contacted the historian for Mt. Zion Methodist Church and she has no record of where he is in this Cemetery.

The Find a Grave # is 68732310. Can you possibly give us a location in the cemetery, and possibly who is on either side of him?

Peter Doll 3rd Great Grandfather
I have been looking for him for some time. Was a year of of his head stone here is some info please add to his memorial. or I will take it over if you would like.

On Thursday, February 6, 1879 last occured one of the most sickning, shocking accidents that has yet visited this city. Peter Doll, one of our most enterprising German farmers, residing seven miles south-west of Avoca, was in town and had purchased a load of lumber for a new barn he was contructing. About five o'clock he started home, but stopped at the residence of Mr. Mynster, on the south side, on business. Just as he started from there, his tearm became frightened and ran turning the corner where Orrin Beswick lives -- dumping Mr. Doll and the lumber, when feeling no further restraint they ran at breakneck speed toward home. They were caught near iron bridge, south of town, and brought back to Beswick's Corner, and Mr. Doll commenced to reload, but the horses, not having recovered from their fright, again started in the wildest terror. Mr. Doll threw himself upon the rear standard of the wagon -- no bed being upon it -- but the lines were wrapped around one of the front standards, out of his reach, leaving him at their mercy. They ran around the block to the street crossing immediately south of Mr. Able's residence, passing over which wagon bounced up swinging Mr. Doll's head with crushing force against the hard, cruel boards. He was carried a short distance further when he fell senseless to the ground. He was picked up and carried into the house of Mr. Chas Able, near by, and surgical aid immediately summoned. Upon Examination it was found that he had received a severe cut over the eye, which extended two-thirds around his head, severing the external carotid artery and laying the skull almost bare, which was also fractured. He received every attention which aumanity could dicate, at the hands of Mr. Able and wife, and his friends, who watched by his bedside till two o'clock, when he passed quietly beyond the stygian river, amid the broken-hearted sobs of his wife and little ones, not have been conscious at any time after the accident.
Mr. Doll was born in Perlach, Bavaria, on the 2nd day of May, 1847, where the days of his youth and early manhood were spent. He came to this country in the year 1869, and settled in Johnston County, this State, which place he removed to Avoca in the spring of 1875, in June of which year he became a subscriber for the Delta, and has remained on our books ever since, one of our most prompt patrons, Mr. Doll was as good as his bond--a good citizen in every sense of that term. A kind father and a loving loyal husband, his loss falls with bitter force upon the hearts of his bereaved family, who, of all the beside, knew his inate goodness of heart. God pity the the bruised and wounded hearts of that lonely wife and sorrowing children--mere words are inadequate to soothe them in this their hour of scorching anquish. On Friday at 9 o'clock, he was followed to the tomb by a procession of sorrowing crowds more than a mile long, the largest ever before seen in this town, and now sleeps on cheerless hillside--a good man lost.

Thank you, I appreciate your reply. My siblings and I have no idea where our father's siblings are or if any of them are even still living.
Thank you again!!
