Melanie and Rodger Atkins retired to full time volunteer projects in 2001. Both are Hospice volunteers for Hamilton Medical Center in Dalton, Whitfield Co., GA. Rodger is Asst Scoutmaster for a Boy Scout Troup in Dalton, and he teaches forestry merit badge classes at Camp Sidney Dew during scout camp. He also does volunteer work for the Forestry Service. Melanie has been doing family research since 1999 and is locating many long lost cousins. Knowing how important tombstones are to genealogy, this website was a joy to find, and we are happy to help others with tombstone photos.
