Slater
Hey Linda, Hope you are well. If I was younger, I might be able to figure all these mysteries out before it's my time. There is a J.G. Slater listed in the Alabama Civil War Service Database buried at Oakland. I believe he is listed as J.G. in the cemetery book. There is no J.G. on a roster of the 23rd Alabama. There is a J.J. listed in the Alabama Database and on a roster of Company K. There is no J.M. in the database and J.J. is the only Slater on the roster. To make matters worse, the Alabama Database has a J.J. Slaters listed in Company K and buried at Bethel Confederate Cemetery in Knoxville. Their records list a J.T. "STATERS" of Company K buried April 11,1862. I don't know what to do. I may change my memorial to J.M. and chalk the rest of it up to a bad dream. Tell me what you think I should do, if you have any idea. Thanks, Hutch.

Gaskills in Oakland Cemetery, Fulton, GA
I saw that you put up the information on V.A. Gaskill and some of his family. You said that V.A. was survived by Cora. Do you know what happened to her? I just found a book published in 1868 that had her name. It was inscribed Cora Gaskill, Atlanta, Ga and the date was October 1870. The book somehow made it to my family in east Tennessee. Would love to know more about Cora. Thanks!

Nancy Agnes Irvine Reed
Hi I have been working on Irvine history. I have sources in my possession that list Gen. Wm.'s children, but Nancy is not listed. I have her sister Ann with the same birthdate a year earlier. Can you give me info and sources on her so I can add it to my records?
Thank You

Lucy's grave marker is similar to those of her siblings. Do you know if she is buried with them?According to her death record she died 8 Apr 1895 in Memphis, TN. Does the cemetery have any information on her husband. Thanks for any information you may be able to provide.

Thanks for checking. If I ever get so ambitious as to try to find his cousins etc, I will be in touch. Right now I am just getting started.

Re Disney Cemetery
Hello...I am a descendant of Thomas Spurrier Disney (1795-1879) buried in the Disney Cemetery. From our family Bible I know he was married to Rachel Deaver (1796-1864). Did you find any record of her being buried in that cemetery with her husband? Also...you are correct as to the children, and there were two other siblings as well who must not be buried there. They were Rachel Elizabeth (1829-1908) who married George Beasley (1826-1893), and Louisa Disney who was ~16 in 1850. I can follow the Disney/Beasley lineage to present day, but if anyone reading this knows anything about the other children, I would be interested and would appreciate your posting it here. Thanks.

RE: Mt. Zion cemetery, Macon, MO
Hello - When we are traveling I like to look for small out-of-the-way cemeteries and check FindaGrave for photo requests. We were traveling in Missouri when I took the Mt.Zion photo, but actually live in Oregon. I'm sorry I don't have any information for you. Have you checked for a Macon County Genealogy or Historical Society for more info? There is a slight possibility we might be in the area again next summer. If so, I'll see what I can find out.

Mem. No. 130192142 - Jackson C. Sherouse
You have taken on quite project and you are to be commended. Thank you.
The mother of Jackson Sherouse is Emily Grantham, who died in Audust of 1847. She was the first wife of John C. Sherouse. Two other children of hers are William Marion Sherouse, and John Elbert Sherouse who was born in June of 1847.
His second wife was Matilda Grantham. No proof, that I know of, has surfaced that proves whether Emily and Matilda are sisters or cousins.
Thank you again for your dedication.

Re: Memorial 52596348
Per your suggestion, I contacted photo@findagrave.com and asked them to move the photo to the correct memorial. That's about all either one of us can do I guess.
Thanks

Charles A. Adams
George Washington Kirksey family plot
Dear Linda,

I am the only known contact person for the George W. Kirksey Family plot at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta. Our ADAMS/Kirksey family was well known in Atlanta during the 1800's to the 1900's. George was a well known railroad man all his life. He was a CSA soldier during the war, when he was captured by Sherman during the Battle of Atlanta.He was my G-G-Grand Father on my Grand Mother (Bessie Fay Kirksey Adams) side. I have documented both families on Ancestry.com under my below listed name. There's a lot of history in both families! In my family the ADAMS there's the Presidents, John and John Quincy, who are my 5th and 6th cousins. They are the Allegheny line of the ADAMS' My family is the Appalachian line of the Adams, who were the first Adams to get off the boat in 1621 in Plymouth, Mass. George's cousin, Andrew Jackson Kirksey was a military hero who was killed when John F. Kennedy's PT-109 was struck by a Japanese destroyer in 1942. All this is documented on my tree! Thank you for EM me I placed some photos of George and Rebecker on their Find a Grave sites. Charles Atticus Adams, Jr 1 * cadams3885@comcast.net

John Thrasher
Thrasher - Overby Cemetery
Hi - It was with great surprise that I found that you had added the Barton Thrasher Family Cemetery (Thrasher - Overby) to Find A Grave. Our family had delayed adding it as we were waiting until we could get actual driving & walking directions & the GPS reading. This is to take place during the early winter of 2015. As you realized when you visited the cemetery, getting there is no easy feat! Until we can get that correct information, I would request that the location be changed to "Farmington" (not Watkinsville which is miles away) and the name be corrected to the "Barton Thrasher Cemetery - Overby". All published records in the Thrasher Family Association Newsletter from 1983 to the present time and in several books/publications (especially "Our Thrasher Heritage by D. S. Pruett 1986) name the cemetery as the Barton Thrasher Cemetery. I am a direct descendant of Barton (Early Wyatt Thrasher, John E. Thrasher Sr., J. E. Thrasher Jr.) who are now linked to Barton. Many thanks for your wonderful record with Find A Grave and consideration of my requests. John E. Thrasher III, Chairman of the Thrasher Family Association, established in 1974.

Some duplicates
Hi there. I just noticed that you have some duplicates of your memorials, namely, for Norwood Sisson, Robert Sisson, Nellie Sisson and Lee Sisson. It makes it look as if their parents had 11 kids when they really only had 7. I thought you'd like to know.

RE: Need your help
Hey Linda, The closest name I could find was J. Spence Company B 54th Virginia Infantry on page 60 of the "Book". According to it, he died at Fairground Hospital number 2 November 11,1863. The 54th Virginia fought in and around Atlanta including Chickamauga. It was attached to the Army of Tennessee in which General John C. Breckenridge was a commander. However, I can't find where the 54th was under his direct command. I found John H., Joshua C., Jeremiah and Johnson M. Spence on a roster of the 54th. The two latter survived the war and have memorials on Findagrave. I guess I would list him as Spence. His first name and service may be one of those pesky mysteries I can't seem to avoid. Thanks, Hutch.

RE: Ferree's in Chestnut Level Cemetery
There are dozens of other memorials placed in the old cemetery that belong in the new cemetery. It is really slowing me down cross-checking and many of the creators never respond. I know how easy it would be to make that mistake as newspaper obituaries and family histories simply state Chestnut Level Presbyterian Cemetery.

If you are related to these Ferree's you are welcome to post the pictures wherever you wish.

Thanks again.

Thank-you for your super quick response in changing the cemeteries for the Ferree's in Chestnut Level Cemetery. I think that you will be receiving a few more. I photographed the entire cemetery. I will send corrections for the rest when I come to them.

Regards,
