RE: Vestal Cemetery
I think I have it figured out. The David Vestal cemetery was the one bulldozed. The Aaron Vestal cemetery, across the street, I think, from the McLean Cemetery is the one in shambles. (I have to switch some postings.) You have a chance, please check out the latter, and I will try to help you with family relationships (a lot of initials there). From what I hear, the latter may be gone also before long. There are also not postings or pictures from the Green (GH) Fitzgerald cemetery, and I hear that it is another one on the endangered list. Hope this helps. Thanks.

I also found this out about the cemetery. To the left, about 50 feet away is a slave cemetery. Don't know who they are, but it is definitley a slave cemetery.

RE: Vestal Cemetery
I have asked for clarification from the person who found a Vestal cemetery. It will be nice to preserve records if it is in such a bad state as I have heard.

RE: Vestal Cemetery
I believe Mike Watkins found this cemetery and it was in shambles. Many monuments lost or marked only with initials as I recall. I have lost my notes in a computer crash and will need to recheck with him. Many of the markers I listed were evidently found in 1963, and I found references to those being bulldozed over. Also, there are two Vestal cemeteries in Maury, and not being from the area, I wonder if there is some confusion between the two. I believe the one Mike found was primarily the family of Aaron Vester and Elizabeth Sparkman and possibly across the street from McLean Cemetery.

RE: Sparkman Family
William Reed Sparkman, who relocated to Trigg Co., KY/Stewart Co., TN, with his "Ward" brothers in law, was the son of Jesse and Rebecca Sparkman (while there is evidence that William's middle name was Reed, I have seen none to indicate it was also his mother's maiden name.) Jesse was murdered in 1784 in Bertie Co., NC, by his brother in law. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ncbertie/thomasgeraldmurder.htm Jesse was the son of Capt. William Sparkman of Bertie who died in 1784. Capt. William's nephew, James Sparkman, who married Nancy Segar, lived in Hertford Co., NC, and their son, William, who married Rosannah Williams, is the William who relocated to Williamson Co., TN.

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!

Alexander Cemetery
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.

Thank you so much for taking the time to document all of these graves. Means so much to the families!

I have corrected the problem.

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.

Priscilla & Scott,

You both deserve a great, big thank you for deleting your memorial and keeping mine. Most people would not have been so kind; I am very thankful for people like you. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

RE: G.W. Bowling
I am a novice at this and don't really know how to do that. Can you help me?

The cemetery is on private land on his old farm I believe.

RE: Transfer
Hi there, I am related but it is distant.

She is the daughter of William T. Byrd.
He is the son of Lee Bird, who is a brother to
my great, great grandfather Terrell Bird. Terrell and other Byrd family members are buried at the Byrd Cemetery, Newton County, GA

Lee Bird died during the Civil War at Vicksburg, MS.

I know that this request out of the Find A Grave guidelines, but I would most certainly appreciate the transfer.

Thanks ever so much, Joyce Byrd Slaughter aka Birdgirl

RE: Jobe Corrections
Yes, her married name is Grooms. Also, Juanita B. Steed Jobe is buried at the same cemetery, and she is the daughter of Emma Jobe Steed and Edward Forest Steed (both buried at Green Lawn cemetery in Portsmouth). Emma and Edward also have another daughter buried with them at Greenlawn, Berenice Steed. Thanks for the beneficial service you are providing!
Sincerely,

Thank you doesn't seem adequate!
Thank you just doesn't seem adequate to convey my gratitude for your transferring the memorial of Minnie Rebecca Ivey Amos to my care. It is an honor to manage her memorial. Again, thank you so much for creating the memorial and for all you do to further the mission of Find A Grave.

I salute you this Memorial Day!

Be blessed!
