James Frederick Usher (picture)
Thank you, Thank you! for the photo of James Frederick Usher. As George is the father of your great grandmother, Annie, James is the father of my grandmother Ida Clementine. The only picture I have found of James was a group picture in the "History Of Stewart Co." vol. 1. He and George have white beards and they are very hard to see in the group. The picture of him which you have so graciously shared is a true treasure for me. It reveals to me not only his physical attributes, but his love of music as well. Now I can assume that the gift of music that was so evident in many of my aunts and uncles was a gift inherited from the Usher family. I know that seven out of thirteen were musically talented, though none of them cultivated it to the degree that you have. There are only a few of our family left to appreciate this treasure and I will be privileged to share it with them immediately. If you have any history of the Usher family that you are able to share with me I would love to hear from you in that regard. Thank You again for the photo,

RE: Tabitha Smith Wayne County NC
Hi there! I am not related to Mrs. Smith. I came across her marker when I was there to photograph the Confederate Monument. (I wish I had taken a better photo.) I transferred the memorial to Find A Grave and now anybody can send an edit and it will be accepted. I have no idea who added her death location. Sorry. :(

Lee are you related to Moab Hewitt? Trying to figure out if he is connected to the Hewitt's around Florence and Williamsburg.

Thank you Lee, Thank you Thank you.

I have waited for so long to see these stones and a couple of questions have been answered due to your generosity. I did not know of these cemeteries when I was in the area, and only visited Grave Memorial# 25009501. I remember the briars,the humidity and other discomforts and thank you the more for braving them to take the photos. Did you happen to take an overall shot of the grave site? If so, the grave yard it's self needs a photo. Did you take any close ups of the stones? Daniel's seems to have carvings of him and his wife's faces, are they generic or good likenesses? Some of the stones had text that is not legible. Would love to see close ups if you took them.

Again, My gratitude,

Lee, thankyou for taking the time to try to take a picture of these two in Hall County, Georgia. I guess the White Crosses left by US Army Corps of Engineers was when they moved the graves prior to the implementation of Sidney Lanier Lake.

About how many White Crosses were there in that area you found?

My personal email:

Thank You, Sharon
