|Bio and Links|
I am a third generation family historian on the Ward and Dubberley families of Macon and Lee County, Alabama. It is hard to say whether I became interested in genealogy ten years ago or fifty years ago as I spent quite a bit of time in my childhood accompanying my mother and grand aunt trampling through overgrown cemeteries and shuffling through papers in dusty old court records. To this day, I can't pass an old cemetery or courthouse without feeling compelled to go inside. Although my mother never got her genealogy records organized, she kept every wedding invitation, obit, hand written scrap of paper recording family relationships, etc. She essentially kept the same type information on close friends and neighbors; so, if you receive a Find A Grave Suggested Change/Correction from me on someone to whom I am in no way related, don't be surprised. Use it if you like or toss it if you don't.|
I am now actively researching the descendants of Enos Wesley Ward and Mary Ward (nee Roland), many of whom migrated from Georgia to Macon County and Lee County, Alabama by way of Chambers County, Alabama. I am also trying to locate descendants of Allen Dubberley and Harriet Dubberley (nee Walker). This is not to say, that I am not looking for their ancestors, also.
I am also interested in my Zachry and Whatley lines; but, there are far more qualified researchers out there who seem to have those lines figured out and documented far beyond what I could hope to do. One researcher who immediately comes to mind is my friend and second cousin, Joyce May White, who as far as I am concerned is the guru on my line of Whatley's.
I am not actively researching my late husband's Caldwell and Parker lines at this time as his comments to me over the years regarding genealogy have gone something like "the Parkers have been in Screven County, Georgia forever. They know who they are." As it turns out, his line of Parkers have been in Screven County, Georgia since the late 1700's and we buried my late father-in-law there. So, I guess they did know who they were! I got similar comments regarding his Caldwell/Bennett lines relative to Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia.
Anyway, enough about me. If you see errors or omissions or would like to add material to any of the Find A Grave memorials that I maintain, just let me know. Also, if you identify yourself as "more kin" than I am to one of the people whose memorial I maintain, I will certainly consider a transfer unless it is my direct line. Meanwhile, I will keep trying to get memorials established and/or connected in case "we forget who we are!"

Repeating - please allow my edit for Leslie Allen Wood to flow through, linking him to his parents; he is my great uncle.

I am very interested in what I believe to be your Whatley line as it pertains to my Lynch line. Would love to find out more. Esther Lynch-Whatley married Charley Curtis Whatley Sr. Esthers father William Hershel Lynch I believe came from Asberry or Asbury Lynch who was a son of William Lynch (1752-1837) father of 34 children. I have been trying to track down as many of the 34 childrens descendants as possible. Asberry has been challenging.

I have generated memorial pages for Lovick's parents. If you will check your edits, you will find their ID numbers so you can connect him to them.
Thanks for connecting him,

I believe George Bernard Ward Jr. may have married a lady in a genealogy I am working on. I am trying to determine if I have the right George Bernard Ward and if so, did they have children. Please contact me at Daniel@DanielAWillis.com. Thanks

I requested a photo of a grave marker for Mary Ethel Bennett Caldwell, the wife of John Mars Caldwell Sr at Westover Cemetery in Augusta, Georgia. The cemetery office said that they have no record of her, but John Mars Caldwell Sr. is buried there. Do you have any more information on Mary Ethel?

That is a "Festus" Clock. We have one just like it in our home. If my memory serves me correctly, they were made about 1910-1915.

Hello, I posted a few photos of the Wise Plot, which is indeed by the water tower. There is no marker for Thomas. How closely related to the other Wise's here? Would he be in another part of the cemetery possibly?

Thanks for the transfer
|Naomi Snider (Yocom) McFadden||McGraw|
She is a distant cousin. I will be more that happy to take care of her. Thanks
