|Bio and Links|
I started my interest in cemeteries by helping my grandmother clean our family plot. The poetic inscriptions and the sculptures on the gravestones fascinated me. The gravestones seemed to me to be works of art that needed to be shared and preserved. |
My interest then moved to genealogy when my daughter got a school assignment to trace her family roots. I got hooked on Find A Grave when I found my grandfather's grave and his Naval Service portrait while doing some random family line searches. The ultimate "hook" was when I found my husband's father's grave in Kentucky. He teared up - he had never seen it.
Family surnames I search are - Ackerman, Austin, Hargrove, Owens, Cummings, Crain, Crosby, Sineath, Crump, Horsley, Duncan.

Can you send me the picture of his grave stone? I can't read the birthdate of his wife or the marriage date on the low resolution version you posted on his memorial.

That clears up some gaps in my data. Thanks!
|Nancy Ziemba Gleaton||Re: Timothy Ackerman|
Just saw your grandmother's beautiful bio on her memorial page. If I understand correctly, her 1st husband was Tim Ackerman. I recently ran across his obituary which lists "Lottie G." as his widow, so I'm guessing she was his 2nd wife. It also lists a third daughter married to King Parker. Since you list two daughters by Tim, I can only assume this third daughter was with Lottie. Can you help shed some light? Thanks.

I am hoping that you may be able to help me in my search for information on John Noel Cummings. He was my 3rd great grandfather on my mother's mother's side. My grandmother's name was Helen M. Cummings and she married Julius Lynch. Any information you might be able to provide will be greatly appreciated.

unfortunately no. I was hoping this would have visible information to tie it to a known family member in my tree on ancestry. We know the Buckels/Buckles were in South Carolina, but not when they got there or exactly when they left. only that it was after 1810 but before 1833.

Thanks for looking. I know most infant graves go uncared for and often are lost to the elements, but I thought I would try.
|Ron Kinney||RE: Photos of John & Bertha Crain's headstone|
You and your husband are most welcome, glad to help out.
I go past Forest Hill a few times a day and I have a plot map, so if a headstone exists, I can usually find it quickly.
Sincerely, Ron Kinney
