The Youngblood graves in Oakland
Thank you for your reply. I believe you are correct. Perhaps she is the next generation back.

Sarah Gilstrap Youngblood #134633184
First,thank you for your work. Findagrave is a treasure to researchers.
I believe that this lady was the wife of G G [George G] Youngblood #142452102 and mother of G G Youngblood #142452119. She married George in Carroll Co in 1845 with the name Sarah McGinnis. In your experience, is her flat stone too modern for 1879? Is it a more recent addition? Her birth year was much later than 1805--perhaps 1825 because she had her first child in 1847. Clearly, someone believed her maiden name was Gilstrap enough to place it on the stone. Regarding her son G G born 1847, he was living in the 1860 census, but the memorial says he died in 1857. Is there a stone for him?

You are correct, I did in fact get the two mixed up. Thank you for the correction.

PHOTO UPDATE
As lovely as it is, you may want to remove the cemetery photo for Frank Crawford Armstrong and add the photo and bio instead:
Born in the Choctaw Agency, Indian Territory (Oklahoma) on November 22, 1835, Francis “Frank” Crawford Armstrong was commissioned a second lieutenant in the 2nd U. S. Dragoons in June 1855. Promoted to captain in the spring of 1861, Armstrong led his company of dragoons at the Battle of First Bull Run on July 21, 1861. He resigned for the U. S. Army the following month and joined General Benjamin McCulloch’s Confederate forces in Arkansas.
Armstrong saw a great deal of combat during the remainder of the war. He served as an aide to Colonel James McIntosh in the Indian Territory in late 1861 and early 1862, and served with General McCulloch during the Pea Ridge campaign. After McCulloch’s death at Pea Ridge, he accompanied General Earl Van Dorn to the other side of Mississippi and was named colonel of the 3rd Louisiana Infantry. In July 1862, Armstrong was appointed acting brigadier general by Sterling Price and given command of all cavalry units in the Army of the West. He led a cavalry brigade at the Battle of Thompson’s Station, Tennessee in March 1863, and after being promoted to brigadier general the following month, took command of a brigade in General Nathan Bedford Forrest’s cavalry division. He led a division at the Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia, a brigade during the Atlanta Campaign, and helped cover the retreat of John Bell Hood’s Army of Tennessee after the Battle of Nashville. His last action was at Selma, Alabama in April 1865; he surrendered the following month.
Following the war Armstrong served as United States Indian Inspector and Assistant Commissioner of Indian Affairs.
Armstrong died in Bar Harbor, Maine, in 1909.

I moved her to Oakland. Is there a reason why she wasn't buried next to her husband?

RE: Witts
Yes, Section 7
The Witt's in Section 15 have no grave markers at all - and this includes Charles C. Witt who died July 14, 1918 - you have him in Section 7

Charles C. Witt died of Cancer, his wife is Mary Witt (died-1922)

Mine is taken from a higher angle - Hans - I guess it's OK to have additional photo as long as nothing else needs to be posted.

RE: Louis's name
I don't think Henry was his nickname. Everything I found on him had Henry in parenthesis. So I put his full name down in the bio section.

RE: Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Can I do that if I don't know for sure which tombstone is his? Can I just put his burial information according to his obituary?

RE: Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Wow, you were quick to reply. Thank you!
I have no idea who Lollie Muller was and I wondered why she was buried next to Mary. Mary had 6 children who died young and 5 lived to adulthood!! But Lollie and with her birth date could not have been one of them as Mary would have been 70 when she gave birth. Perhaps she was a grandchild??
I noticed the Breitenbucher tombstone and Amme Breitenbucher was a pallbearer at Mary's funeral but I'm not quite clear on how they were related. Amme was Mary's maiden name. I'm not yet sure who Mary's sisters were and if one was Elizabeth.
Louis C. (Henry) Muller was born Carl Ludwig Heinrich Muller but I doubt his tombstone would be in that name. And in the Army he used the name Henry Miller. He was born 1848 and died November 14, 1892.
Thank you so much. I will call the Sexton and see what I can find out. You've been a great help.
Anne

Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Hello,
Mary Rebecca Muller, #140205189, is my great grandmother. She is buried at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta; plot Sec 21, Block 299, Lot 2, grave 1. For some reason I cannot find her husband, Louis C. (Henry) Muller, 1848-1892. Louis died 30 years before Mary and I don't know that the family had a family plot where they could reserve a space for Mary. But I looked at all the Mullers buried there and didn't see his name or a date close to his death date. That is a HUGE cemetery and perhaps his tombstone has not yet been documented. Could you give me an idea how I could track him down and what the burial policy is for that cemetery? Would a family be able to reserve a section for their family members? Do you know how much of the cemetery has been covered?
Also, thank you very much for all you do. This is a great service for the families.

RE: George Kyle
Hi,
Thank You for the reply..
I'm surprised to hear this, since I did find CW records on him and his Burial Marker application card
I will post that on his Memorial...then just maybe someone will find him eventually...

He was from Texas and Maybe his group has not been done yet ?

Thanks for all you do to preserve these Memorials on here...

RE: E. Holland in Oakland

E. Holland in Oakland
I have been searching for the burial place for my 5th great grandfather for a while now. His name was Elisha L. Holland b. abt 1798 and died sometime bet 1860-1869. He was the father of Leonidas "Green" Holland who is buried there at Oakland and was also a caretaker of the cemetery at one point. Elisha lived with Green in 1860. Assuming that Elisha still lived with Green at the time of his death I would also assume that he would have been buried at Oakland. Do you think it possible that a man in his mid to late 60's would have been this E. Holland CSA? Also, can you tell me who applied for the tombstone?

RE: Coleman Clarke
Here is where I got the information that his son is a Jr., so I assumed he is a Sr.:

HONOLULU, HAWAII, PASSENGER AND CREW LISTS: Name: Coleman D. Clarke, Jr.; Age: 8; Gender: M; Birth Date: 20 Aug 1939; Birth Place: Atlanta, GA; ; Port of Departure: Honolula, Hawaii; Departure Date: 22 Jul 1948; Ship: President Cleveland; Arrival Port: Yokohama, Japan; Passport No: 17231; US Address: 2421 Halelga Pl., Honolulu, T. H.;
>HONOLULU, HAWAII, PASSENGER AND CREW LISTS: Name: Coleman D Clarke, Jr. ; Age: 6; Gender: Male; birth Year: abt 1939; Port of Departure: San Francisco, CA; Departure Date: 6 Oct 1945; Port of Arrival: Honolulu, Hawaii; Arrival Date: 11 Oct 1945;
>CALIFORNIA, PASSENGER AND CREW LISTS: Name: Coleman D Clarke, Jr.; Arrival Date: 10 Jul 1950; Age: 10; Birth Date: abt 1940; Birthplace: Georgia; Gender: Male; Ship Name: Presidenct Wilson; Port of Arrival: San Francisco; Port of Departure: Yokohama, Japan; Date of Departure: 28 Jun 1950; Addr: 1183 Clifton Rd. NE., Atlanta, GA;

The only place I found the son's middle name as David was in the 1940 census. But I found the following marriage record:

North Carolina, Marriage Index: Name: Coleman Daniel Clarke Jr., resides in Atlanta GA; Gender: Male; Birth: abt 1939; Age: 22; Race: White; Spouse: Elizabeth Ann Measamer, resides in Sanford, NC; Gender: Female; Age: 21; Race: White; Marriage Date: 2 Sept 1961; Marriage Location: West Sanford, Lee, NC; By whom married/Place of Marriage: Rev. J. R. Noffsinger, W. Sanford Twp; Witnesses: Glenda Hyman, Clifford Clarke, Billie Ann Milliams; Note that Clifford Clarke is his brother;

I also found the following:
Coleman Caniel Clarke in the U.S. School Yearbooks, 1880-2012:

Name: Coleman Caniel Clarke
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1939
School: Wake Forest University
School Location: Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA
Year: 1959
Yearbook Title: Wake Forest University Yearbook, 1959

If you look at this entry on ancestry.com, it has Japan by his name. I'm assuming this is his residence.

So Jr went to college at Wake Forest which would explain why he married in North Carolina.

I also found where Jr and his wife Elizabeth divorced in 1981 in Travis Co., TX.

I also found a Clifford H. Clarke in the yearbook at Wake Forest. It also shows Japan by his name.

Does this help?
