Emanuel Burwell Jackson Grave
Please surrender this grave of my great grandfather to me.
There are several corrections that need to be done to the entry and I can never understand how East Point got control of this grave in Fayette Co, GA.
I know of none of the family that lives up there and the confusion this has caused among the cousins who are as dumbfounded as I.

John Wesley Moss
Dear EPHS,

I see you made the memorial for John W. Moss.

I am looking for my great grandfather John Wesley Moss who was born in Eastanollee, Georgia and lived mostly in or around Atlanta.

Is there any way you can help confirm any information as whether this may be my great grandfather. Uncle who remotely remember him say he lived to be about 96 years old.

This JW Moss was 98 when he died. Maybe this could be the same person. I do not see anymore Moss in this cemetery. Not even a wife.

Just trying to find John Wesley Moss.

Thank you!

Terminal Hotel Fire, Atlant, Georgia
My grandfather, who worked for Southern Railway, also died in the Terminal Hotel fire on 16 May 1938. He was never mentioned on any lists, but I know that this is in fact true from my grandmother (his wife), my father, and his death certificate. He is buried in West View Cemetery in Atlanta, and was furnished a marker by being a Spanish-American War veteran. Although, somehow his listing was missed by I would hope that he can be added to the list of those who died in this tragedy. Here is my profile on him on my family tree:

Warren Sanford McLaughlin Sr. (Spanish-American War Veteran)
Your paternal grandfather
Birth 22 Sep 1880 in Homerville, Clinch, Georgia, USA
Death 16 May 1938 in 5th Floor, Terminal Hotel, Spring Street SW, Atlanta, Fulton, Georgia, USA

Private First Class James C. Conklin
Private First Class James C. Conklin was a paratrooper of Headquarters Headquarters Company of the 504th Parachute Field Artillery Battalion, 82nd Airborne Division. He was on board of a C-47 transport plane [tail 42-68720] that was shot down by "friendly fire" on 11 July 1943. No trace was found of the plane nor crew and paratroopers.

Pfc Conklin is listed on the Walls of Missing of the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy. He was lost in or near Sicily in July 1943.

You listed a picture with his name on the cenotaph. I would like to ask your permission to use that picture for my project about the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily, where over 1,200 men and women were buried between July 1943 and April 1947. If his remains would have been found, he would have been buried at Gela.

I have my project available on a DVD, titled "They stayed behind".

Of course you will be credited

Is there a possibility of having someone taking a picture of the gravestone, or, listing the location of the grave in Hillcrest Cemetery?
