RE: Mary Mott Warthen Taylor ~ #32597741
Thank you so much for the transfer of the Mary Taylor memorial page, Georgia Girl. I was happy to have the opportunity to provide an image of Camilla's monument. It really is lovely, isn't it? I worked to locate the cemetery for some time, and was only able to do so with the help of many wonderful folks. Feeling grateful...

Hi Georgia Girl,

Regarding your memorial for Sarah Eugenia "Bacon" Lenard in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Ouachita Parish, LA, do you have a familial connection to this person? She's a grandmother to my wife who is attempting to verify Native American ancestry.

Could you please correct the information for Susan Bonner Mapp (Reeves). Information states she is the daughter of John Howell and Jane (Harper) Reeves. However, the parental links is Allen Howell Reeves and Jane Harper.
Could you please remove the reference of John Howell and replace with Allen.

Thank you,

RE: Francis Henry Springer ~ #88409450
Yes, the first Section & Lot are the city system, the second Section & Lot are in Dolores Autry's "Historic Linwood Cemetery" book. The Historic Linwood Foundation recently put the city map on their website, so that can now be used to help locate a lot (unless it is in the Old Cemetery section). But if someone is using the book instead, they need to know where the lot is according to Autry's system. The other reason it is helpful to include both is that many of the unmarked graves are not in Autry's book, but if someone can find a marked grave in Autry's book that is near the unmarked grave, it can help them locate the unmarked one on the ground - but only if the marked one has the lot designations from both systems. I realize that may sound complicated, but it really will help folks locate graves. Thanks - John

William "Wiley" Abercrombie
Our Georgia Journal record of the announcement of Wiley Abercrombie's death ran in the issue of September 16, 1829 and states that he died on the "14th instant." I have not read the microfilm personally but the person who abstracts these items is usually right. James P. Marshall, Jr., Presdent, Eatonton-Putnam [GA] Historical Society, Inc.;

Rebecca Abercrombie Hurt
You may want to add married Spencer Hurt, Sr. on 24 December 1817 in Putnam County, GA. We also believe that Rebecca's father Wiley (as he is known in all our county legal records) and his wife Eliza M. Abercrombie are both buried in the Old Union Church cemetery in Eatonton in graves that were once marked but there are no surviving tombstones for them. This cemetery suffered mightily from vandalism and neglect over the years. It opened officially in the fall of 1818 as the second burying ground in Eatonton. It lies directly across the Church Street from my home, about 400 feet or so. Suggestion made by James P. Marshall, Jr., President, Eatonton-Putnam County [GA] Historical Society, Inc.;

Hello Georgia Girl,
I am related to John MIDDLETON and Elizabeth "Betsy" SCOTT of Edgefield, SC. Can you please tell me your sources for their birth and death dates and places? I have "hearsay" information, but I'm looking for solid evidence.

Thank you for any information you can give me.

Job Taylor Memorial #32530312
Hello Georgia Girl. I am happy to see you are back on Find-a-Grave. Your contributions have added much to my family searches.

I was wondering if you would transfer Job Taylor's memorial page to me (32530312). Job is my 3rd great-grandfather. I recently had a family member photograph his grave-site memorial which I have uploaded to Find-a-Grave.

Again, welcome back. Thanks, Joy

Fisher Cemetery?

I have been trying to locate the grave of my 6th great-grandfather Thomas Hunt who is supposed to have died in Gay Hill, Washington County, TX. This link:

seems like the best match as the family history is matches my research notes but I cannot find a "Fisher Cemetery" anywhere!

Would you all happen to know where this might be or if it perhaps is under a different name?

Thank you very much!

Sir william harris
I was browsing through my Harris entries and eventually they ended up connecting to some of your Harris entries, including Sir William in Creeksea. Was wondering how you traced that far back. I've never had much luck on that side of the family. I only got back to maybe the early 1800s/late 1700s.

Thanks :)

DOB for William Hunt, Jr.
I agree that the date of 1652 for William Hunt Jr.'s DOB, originally inputted by Georgia Girl, is suspect. I changed the DOB to unknown as I did not see proven documentation on the date 1625. Do you have proven documentation?

sharon brown
judkins name ?
Hi Carol,
My name is Sharon we share family from Judkins Hunt. My 4th great grand mother was Sarah Jane Hunt, daughter of Junkins Hunt Jr. Thank you for the information you have provided on line. It has been very helpful. I am having trouble with where the Judkins came into play. Earlier I thought I saw that it was from Samuel Judkins, through Elizabeth Judkins, but now when i search it seems she did not exist. I do not think someone would randomly name their child Judkins if it was not a family name. Can you help me out?
Thanks for any help you can provide.

I found your reference to Jane Elizabeth Waters Lee. She is the daughter of Rachael Bryan of Bullock/Bryan Co., Georgia. She supposedly was of the Johanthan Bryan lineage of SC/Georgia. He came to Georgia with Gen Oglethorpe in 1733. Do you have any information on Rachael Bryan. Thanks

your message on William Hunt, Jr.
Thank you for your message. As you know, I inherited many Hunt memorials from the former Georgia Girl who passed away. I will adjust William Hunt's page with your information. In your message you wrote "1856". I am pretty sure you meant 1656. I descend from William Hunt, Jr. through Sara Hunt Welch. Please contact me through my email address. Thank you.
Your message:
William Hunt, Jr., b.: 1652(?) - d. 1715 ~ #37728750
He "Patented large tracts of land in James City County from Rice Hoe, December 03, 1856." He would have been only 4 yrs. of age.

I'm descended from their son, Thomas Hunt (I), 1645-1724 (m. 1st., Fortune Jordan) and his 2nd. wife, Elizabeth Judkins (m. 2nd., John Jones). His father, William Hunt, Jr., 1625-1715 was abt. 20 yrs. when Thomas Hunt was born. William Hunt, Jr., "To son, Thomas Hunt, (I) 400 acres added to his now dwelling plantation.

Request for Transfer Of FAG# 79306090, Herman Malcolm Murken

His family and the descendants of his wife's sister, Ann Elizabeth Williams Bowen, have recently raised the money to fund a monument for him and his wife. They died just 100 days apart, and the family just learned in August, 2016, she may have been sick and unable to make arrangements to make arrangements for grave markers on this and later her own grave and NO ONE else stepped up to insure it was done. Anyway, we're taking care of this oversight 92 years later. I've been elected chairman of the project to get the both tombstone markers in place, and the order was made to Clark & Shaw Monument Company of Lyons, Georgia and the headstone markers were placed on September 27. 2016 in Space 3 and 4, Plot #2743, LAUREL GROVE NORTH CMEMTERY, Savannah, Georgia.

Will you would consider transferring this memorial record to me, her Grand Nephew? It would be an honor to me and to her family, as well as to their extended families. Thank you for posting her find a grave memorial record, and for all you are doing to help so many folks find their deceased kinfolks' final resting place of Earth and, also, for all your good works. I have nothing but respect for you and your work which I'm sure brings you much satisfaction. May our good Lord bless you and your family.

Susan Walton 44787292
Hi Carol, I'm working on my Clark side of my family, thank you for creating memorials for them. You created a memorial for Susan Walton #44787292 ( now maintained by Find A Grave) with bio indicating and links made to Gilbert and Charlotte Bullock Clark as her parents, her headstone has name as Susan Windsor Walton, and there is a duplicate memorial for her 88112847. Susan Clark Walton's brother Gilbert M L Clark's 1920 Will indicates his sister Susan Walton died in Texas and he left estate to her children. A 1858 Monroe County marriage record states she married Henry H Walton, Census records have them in Texas from 1880 on. There is a memorial 9110646 for Susan Bullock Clark Walton in Davis Cemetery, Grapeland, Houston County, Texas which I will request linking her to her parents, after the other Susan Walton 44787292 is removed as Gilbert and Charlotte Clark's daughter. Hope I haven't made this too confusing. Since you created the memorial but Find A Grave maintains it, not sure how to handle this. Thanks for your help! Maggie

George M. Brown
I went on my 2nd. great grandfather, George M. Brown, who was killed in the Battle of Cold Harbor, VA in 1864. I notice that incorrect parents and siblings had been put onto his memorial. I sort of trace backwards on the siblings and finally got to the memorial of your 3rd. great grandfather, Hiram Brown but was never able to find out where you connected in this Brown family tree since all the inf I had on you was Georgia Girl. George M. Brown was the son of Jesse Brown. He was born 1825 in SC probably Anderson Co. and died 1864 VA. Jesse Brown b. 1795 Surrey Co., NC & d. about 1841 GA. Jesse was the son of George Brown & Rachel Felton. George Brown b. 1770 Surrey Co., NC d. 1845 Anderson Co., SC, we do not know who our George's parents are but his grandparents were David Brown & Sallie Hurricane Brown & his great grandparents were Jacob Brown & Elizabeth.

Don't know if you fit into my Brown family tree but alway searching for ancestors and answers for missing links. My grandmother was Sarah Levisey "Sallie Vicey" Brown daughter of Isham Jack Brown & Mahala Jane Ivey of Georgia.
