Birdie Quillian

Are you related to the Quillian family? If so, I would be happy to transfer management of all except the Bells and Stevensons. The Bells are direct ancestors of my husband. I have already transferred the three Stevenson memorials to someone.

As it says on the website for the cemetery, we happened on it while researching the Bells. The cemetery was a disaster and we spent a day cleaning it up so we could take pictures. The last time we were up there (about 3 years ago) there were a bunch of houses being built and a road being put in that would run right next to the cemetery. We have since moved away.

I first found you while searching for info on Cohutta Springs in regards to my Dunn ancestry, enjoyed a website that you contributed to , my Dunn family line includes Major Richard Daniel Dunn and Amelia Dunn Lawson, a visit to Catoosa County Assessors office and a visit with Ann Knight rewarded me with possible connection to her Dunn ancesters as well as yours would love to discuss further you can find me on Face Book

RE: Memorial# 32405773 (Duplicate)
I looked up the two cemeteries, and it appears they are right across the street from each other. Perhaps, at one time, the Richardson Family Cemetery was considered a part of the Welcome Home Church Cemetery. I don't know, as I haven't lived in Dalton for more than 60 years, even though I was born there.

We have a similar situation here in Dodge City, as a smaller cemetery which is just across the street from Maple Grove was eventually incorporated into the larger cemetery, and the city now manages both as Maple Grove Cemetery. I am sure this can be difficult for family who live out of state.

Thank you, but the memorial for Ruth Babb Denham, which I control, is much earlier and has family links and info. I have written to the person who posted the later memorial for Ruth and have asked her to post her lovely photo on this earlier memorial which I control. That way, she will be given credit for the memorial, but I will still be in control of my Babb memorial. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
