RE: Bobby Rivers
I had the opportunity to visit the Bobby Rivers cemetery again over Thanksgiving. I went specifically to see if I had missed this grave stone on my initial visit. This headstone doesn't exist at the site. The only other possible location would be at the New Smyrna Methodist
Church in Hancock County GA. While there are some field stones there next to William Jackson, Philip's grandson, there are no headstone markers so I think the final resting place for Philip will have to remain a mystery for now. If you do find out any additional information, please let me know, and I'll do the same.

RE: Bobby Rivers
I pulled it from a member tree in Ancestry. I've reached out to them for information as I would like to know where they found it as well. If they reply, I will forward to you. Thanks

RE: Bobby Rivers
I did and was wondering the same thing. I expected to find it when I went to the Bobby Rivers site but I couldn't find it. If you do determine it's location, and are able to verify that it is the correct one, please let me know so I can update my documents in Ancestry, etc.

RE: Bobby Rivers
Unfortunately no. More than likely though, they are either buried there or in the cemetery at the New Smyrna Methodist church in Hancock County Ga. as there is room next to William T Jackson for both of them and at least one field stone. I hope this helps you. Thanks for adding the information to Find A Grave. As stated, I have additional photos to post when I get time. May God bless you both.

RE: Bobby Rivers
I've included a link to the cemetery from google maps which should help you.
The cemetery is easy to find and is located just off Barnesville Rd, Griffin, GA. Its about a mile south of the intersection of Barnesville rd and
Rehoboth Church rd on Barnesville rd and will be on your right side. If you get to Sanders rd you've gone too far.
There are only a few remaining headstones there now but the site is kept in excellent condition. If you have any specific questions, please let me know and I will try to answer them for you. I also have additional photos if you can provide an email address where I can send them.

RE: Bobby Rivers
It has been so long ago, that I hardly remember… I do remember the Rehoboth Baptist church in our search, and think it must have been down Barnsville Rd from there going west. It was located on the right just after a driveway and there was a house further back . This may have been the Robt Rivers property at one time. I tried to look on Google street view, but couldn’t find it.

Rev. James Williams family
Hi, I am very impressed with your attention to detail on the Williams line I've been working on.

I am helping a Williams descendant with a Daughters of the American Revolution application. I have found 4 proven DAR patriots through the line of James Williams and Sarah Allison, but all 4 previous apps are through their son, Chesley.

Your mention of a Family Bible may be the proof needed to connect Martha Matilda and Alfred Ogilvie Williams to her parents, and hopefully to their son Chesley B. Williams.

If you can help me with these two generations, I would greatly appreciate it. You can answer me through FindAGrave, or directly at holleyizard@yahoo.com

Thank you in advance. Holley Izard

Thanks for Henry Bass Information!
My family appreciates the work you did on the Rev. Henry Bass's grave in South Carolina (d. 1860). He was the younger brother of my 4th-great-grandfather. They were born to a veteran of the War of Independence in Connecticut, but moved south when in their 20s.

We had never seen that photo and thank you for publishing it.

Sincerely,

Charlie Bass
Texas

RE: Mary Waters (Hogsback)
As Miss Mary Ann Waters, a young lady about twenty years of age, engaged in teaching school in the East part of Town (Martinsburg), was returning home on horseback, June 20, 1829, her horse was startled and stopped by a tree falling across the road in front, and directly after another tree fell and killed both horse and its rider.

RE: Virgil Amelia Chaffin
See: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:S1S6-X8W

Also, my aunt's research notes indicate that in an interview with Belle Caffin Ricter named her 2nd daughter, Virgil Amelia Richter after her.

She was the granddaughter of Bat Millhollon, the first Sheriff of Hopkins County, Texas and Elizabeth Lindley, the first daughter of Jacob Marion Lindley and Alsey Ruth Gibson

RE: McLean
Martha McLean wrote a letter to her son Francis Lane McKindley on March 9, 1850; here is an excerpt (her spelling was terrible)
"Mary Ann was in good health I belief if my memory write she weighed 1 hundred and sixty and Ebenezar's wife 1 hundred and eighty they have some fat folks their..."
She also wrote:
"Your uncle james [probably James McLean] went to Livingston county michigan."
Martha McLean was very interested in plants, gardens, trees, farm animals, and fruit trees. I got the info on Martha McLean's letters from a cousin, Jack McKindley, a genealogist descended from Francis Lane McKindley. He is my grandfather's second cousin. He is the one who enabled me to identify the tintype of Martha McLean, which came from a photo album that was passed down in my mother's family. I put that tintype on the internet and I am happy to see it is on the Find a grave site for her.

RE: Chevra Thilim Memorial Park
Oh I assumed you lived here in NOLA. I love the Jewish Cemeteries. They remind me of Wisconsin. In ground burials. My goal is to finish them by the end of the year. I have just finished photographing Beth Israel #2 so I am on to that one! I love Find A Grave. I just started doing this and I am sad I haven't started earlier. If I can ever help you out just let me know!

That would be fine with me. I think some of the problem is due to the fact it is called different things by different people. I wonder if find-a-grave allows for multiple references. It's a little funny because this isn't the easiest cemetery to find. Now that I think about it, I think it is actually located on what is part of Panola Park. I seem to recall that my husband and I had to talk to park rangers to gain permission to the cemetery. I don't think many people do this but we did because someone had told us it would be wise because of the location.

Stanley Alexander Cemetery
I will have to do some checking. If memory serves me correctly, it is located right at the Rockdale/Henry County lines. I went and photographed graves at the request of someone in 2011 and uploaded them to the cemetery that was with the request. I had taken additional pictures of some graves in the immediate vicinity of the graves requested and made memorials because none existed in that group. It appears that this cemetery has been replicated. I will try to remember to check the cemetery books at the genealogical society on Friday. I did not intentionally duplicate your memorials and will remove them after I figure out what has happened.

RE: Holland Question
I created the memorial but I did not add the family links. Other people in the Find A Grave system must have added them. From some of the obits it appears someone has added some wrong links. As a member of Find A Grave you can add the proper links.

Thank you for your notification. I am aware of the situation. To make a long story short, somehow Find a Grave applied my name to about 300 memorials I did not create. They were created by 2 or 3 other contributors. The photos they upload also were attributed to me although they are not my photos nor did I upload them. Some of the memorials have already been restored to their original state and hopefully Find a Grave will "fix" the others. Therefore I have not altered those memorials in any way. It is baffling as to how or why it occurred but I am trying to exercise patience in this matter.
