Find a Grave ID


I'm a retired archivist who is very interested in history and genealogy. I love the concept behind Find A Grave - free information for those interested in family history. My family settled mostly in Rockdale, Newton, Henry and DeKalb counties, Georgia.

Forty years ago, I trekked through many cemeteries to seek information about my ancestors. Now that I'm retired, I will be working on projects to add more complete information to memorials located in the counties that I live near. Any edits that I send you are based on primary sources (obituaries, SSDI, and census records...). If you would like to know my source, I will be happy to share.

Some of my family lines are:

Maternal lines: Mann, Ricks, Reagin, Maddox, Stroud, Overton

Paternal lines: Potts, Walker, Harwell, Tucker, Thompson, Mitchell, Chesnut, Gaston, Gladney
