Bio and Links
I have been researching my genealogy ever since I was 10 years' old and enjoy helping others navigate through the various tools to find their relatives. I live in the North Metro Atlanta market, specifically Cumming, GA and am familiar with the Southern States, Mid Atlantic Region up to the Central Pennsylvania regions searching many cemeteries, court houses, and Historical Societies.

Please feel free to contact to take pictures of a grave at any time. I do travel, but if I am in town, I would love to help.

RE: Russell Family Cemetery
Hi Michael!
Since I photographed cemetary,I have learned quite a bit. Jesse Russell has found some of the slave stones and aong with him, a group will be fencing cemetary ,cleaning it up and repairing stones. Jesses gggrandfather was John Russell Crafton,father of John W Russell.
Jesse has set up a Facebook page which will help you find family.
Old Rock Hall (Russell Family) Cemetery
On this page you can see John Russell Craftons will,which has been in Jesses family along with other treasures.
He also did his DNA which is where Crafton showed up!
Hope this helps with your research!

Charles Bradford-New Hope Cemetery
I have searched this entire cemetery and couldn't find Charles Bradford. I talked to a man who was "landscaping" the cemetery and he said that any Bradford headstones would be "clumped together in that area over there" and he proceeded to show me. I have attached a photo on Charles Bradford's memorial of the "Bradford family plot". If it is not to your satisfaction, let me know and I will remove it.

I noticed Bud put up a remark, he is pretty good at this sort of thing. If Charles Bradford is not listed it's probably because burial wasn't noted or his marker has been lost or destroyed.

I hope this helps.

Take care,

Hi, Michael! No relation that I'm aware of. My husband and I have been working Mt. Hebron/Lutheran/Reformed cemeteries, just trying to recoup the recent losses.

Thank you very much for the marker photos. They are great! However, one is upside down. Could you upright it? Again, many thanks,
