I have several relatives buried in Oakland in Section 11 Block 165 Lot 3. You have covered this, but I was wondering if you could provide me with a list of everyone you have record of in this lot (Bought by Jerry E. Johnson) and I could connect them for you.

You're quite welcome! I'm sorry that some of his sources in the book were somewhat sketchy, as he's usually very thorough in his work - but glad that some of it helped. Have a safe and Happy 4th!

Kyra Price
The Price's Description Information Sources
Hello, I want to thank you for spending time on taking photos of my 2-great grandmother, great grandfather, and great aunt! I was wondering in the description that you had written. I was wondering how do you know that information. I knew the majority of the info put down, but desperately seeking as much info I can get on my great aunt #156660531 - Gertrude Kuder Price, 156659980 - Joseph Armand Price, and 156659773 - Mollie Price. Any info would be SUPER great, and any info on "Henry Price" my 2-great grandfather, also you may not but is there any source on Mollies madden name? I feel like she may have had a sister, or re-married. My dad says that all the info on Henry, (Germay's ancestry info) was burned or missing or something way in the past. But ANY HELP WILL BE GRATEFULLY APPRECIATED!

Harry Boggus
Find A Grave Memorial# 132114471

Thanks for getting back to me so soon. Thomas B. Boggus was a Justice of the Peace for the 1234th District G.M. at the time of his death apparently and a city official at various times, so there is every possibility that "Judge" Boggus was indeed Thomas B. Boggus. His age according to his son Thomas B., Jr. would have been 47, close enough to 50, and his father was buried in an unmarked grave in the Oakland Cemetery.

Thomas and Virginia had five children that I am aware of: (#1) Thomas B. Boggus, Jr who is buried in the same cemetery; (#2) Henry (Harry?) W. Boggus who was born ca 1859 per the 1860 and 1870 censuses (not in any census after 1870); (#3) Viola Boggus who died (apparently) sometime after 1904 and before the 1910 census (she was listed in several Atlanta City Directories from 1880 through 1905...boarding with her brother Thomas B. in the 1880s); (#4) James Arthur Boggus who is buried in the Hollywood Cemetery; and (#5) Ernest Hill Boggus who died in DeKalb Co. on June 14, 1943. I don't know where Ernest is buried, unfortunately.

I think Harry may well be Henry as I think the names were used interchangeably on occasion. If he is buried with them he is probably their son; plus the date of death and his age seem to match Henry's (Harry's).

Yes, my info was from old records. I went to the memorial to enter your info and the edit doesn't work. There have been several edits which wouldn't work, lately. If you will re-enter your edit I will try to accept it from the edit page.

Thank you for your work on cemeteries.

Death date for Dr Osborn J Register
I really appreciate all your volunteer time at Oakland Cemetery! My GGGrandather is buried there in Grave 2, Lot 143, Section 1. He has no marker so we have applied to the VA for a marker since he served in the Civil War. Your "find a grave" information says he died in 1883. The cemetery records sent to me by Oakland says 1882. I'm wondering if you can share your source. I don't want to have the wrong info. inscribed! And the VA is asking about the discrepancy.
Thank you so much!

RE: More about Elizabeth Wallace
Oh it's the wrong person, then. I was thinking that rather than create another memorial, this was the person for whom I was looking. I based it on the fact that this was a close match and the grave is near where Elizabeth Wallace's last Census Record was recorded. In the 1870 Census, I found a person living in the household of Bradford W Willis who was indexed as "Wallan" but (faded image) it's "Wallace." And Elizabeth H Willis married Joseph Wallace (and was Bradford's mother-in-law). Elizabeth's daughter, Martha (a.k.a. Patsy Roberts in the 1860 Census and living with her parents in Georgia after evidently her marriage to James Roberts ended) started out as Martha Wallace, then Martha Roberts, then Martha Willis.

RE: Goldie Finkelstein-Rosen #41331851
I see - was not aware of that preference. Will accept your input and find a way to let family know. Thanks. Donna #48515329

Goldie Finkelstein-Rosen #41331851
Thank you for the input. It is correct that she died as "Rosen". We are using Finkelstein-Rosen for the present to assist family members in finding her memorial as that is how they knew her. There are no Rosen descendants from Goldie - he was a second later husband.

Thanks so much for the correct place of death. I like my information to be as true to fact as possible. Also, the obituary link. Our family have none left that could pass on these historical facts, so again much appreciated. Donna Member #48515329

Thomas Scott
Hello. I just found the memorial you created for Thomas Scott at Oakland Cemetery, who died during the Civil War. What a surprise!! May I please have your permission to include your pictures in my family records? Credit for the source would be included, and copies would be for personal use, not for publication or posting elsewhere on the internet. Thank you very much!

RE: Charles Farquer, Memorial# 52292100
My documentation was from a genealogy page I came acrosssed. I only made the suggestion because of your note. I was actually quite hesitant on making the suggestion then decided to just let you know of the other date and let you decide.

Jennie Taylor
You have requested a photo of the marker for Jennie Taylor to try to determine if it is a 'centopath'. I don't know what that is but if this helps, here is the group she is buried with at Highland Park:
Dr. Walter Starnes Nash December 15 1865 - November 13 1943
Eva (Winter) wife of Dr. Walter Starnes Nash April 13 1863 - August 5 1953
Lois (Winter) Morrow September 4 1857 - May 8 1936
Jennie (Winter) Taylor October 29 1867 - February 8 1951
Faye Smith Palmer December 22 1902 - November 15 1949
James Ross Palmer November 17 1900 - December 26 1986

Thank you, that is VERY helpful. From the photo of the Cunningham lot, it is evident that there must some unmarked burials there. Thank you, thank you!

Cunningham and Mason
Hi, thank you so much for sending the information on the burials in Section 17, Block 372, Lot 4, where my Cunningham and Mason relatives are. You have given me a lot to work with, and I really appreciate it. I do feel that Emily (Alford) Cunningham 159425739 is buried here, as it is my understanding that the Grizzle book contains headstone transcriptions (please correct me if I am wrong). The dates of birth and death that I put on Emily's memorial page come from Grizzle. My question for you, I am not clear on whether you compiled the information you sent me from cemetery office records, or did you walk out to the lot (either way, I appreciate the effort very much)? You said there is no record, do you mean no office record or no stone? If you went out and found no stone, I'll assume the stone Grizzle transcribed is no longer there and I'll take down the photo request. Thanks again, Amy

Ancestry tree
As I said my ancestry tree is a little polluted right now as I use ancestry to find the people in my tree. I keep a paper tree and my sister keeps her own paper tree she independently researched. I am not sure the birthdates on simion are true but I did find a baptismal record for him listing them as his parents so someones birthday is wrong and since I didn't have access to the original documents only the transcripts I have to list what I have.I will pull out my paper tree and scan the copies I have to ancestry when I get time. I was working on another branch and havent added those to ancestry. This is why my tree is private until it is cleaned up and documents added.

Whew!I've had to take the 'scenic' route to find you. I can't seem to make any posts in the forum right now. Don't know if it's issues in their system, or mine. I don't want anyone to think that I would ignore them, especially when they take the time to help me with a problem. You suggested I make an unknown with the pic I'm needing help with, so you could enlarge it better to make out the carvings. I just put it with my grandmother's pictures on her memorial, if you're still interested in helping with it. Her's is memorial 159857673
