John Holbrook
Hello Ms. Ferree: I am a descendant of John and Mary Holbrook. My mother's family is from Atlanta, Georgia. She is 91 years old and I am trying to find out family tree information for her. The Holbrook's were the grandmother and grandfather of C.A. Duuke on my grandmother's side. Her name was Minnie Duke. Many of our family members are buried in Oakland and Westview Cemetaries. I see where Mary and John Holbrook had 14 children. Can you give me any of their names or dates of birth? I would appreciate any help you can provide. All of my mother's side of the family have expired, and we have no other way of locating relatives. Thanks so much for your assistance!

Ida P. Kaphan
You have that Ida P. Kaphan, who is buried in the Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, was the wife of Marcus Kaplan. That is not true. She was the wife of Manheim Kaphan, b. abt 1845 in Miloslaw, Posen, Prussia, and d. in 1919 in Bedford, VA. His grave can be found at Find-A-Grave.

RE: D Wadsworth
There is a Gate City Hospital book of records I found on line. A lady wrote all the deaths starting with 2/25/1862 and they are in cronological order. I would go by Oakland records for the row and grave #. This is what she has - 3/8/1862 - D. Wadsworth, 6th Miss. Regiment Co. - Unknown - Row 6, # 4. At the top on page 1, it has Confederate Soldiers buried at Oakland Cemetery. - Here is the name of it - Oakland Cemetery Book of Confederate Burials, February 1862 - July 5, 1864.
I wondered how many soldiers actually died at the hospital and stumbled on this record of them.

Harriet Turman Smith
I live in Chosewood Park which is a neighborhood created out of the land once owned by John Miller C. Reed. I live on Eric Street which was named after the son of Helen Reed Turman who was John Miller C. Reedís daughter.

Iíd like to know if you have any other information on the Reed family?

A mystery to me is the fact that the Harriet Turman Smith cemetary is located at the rear of 1400 Eric Street. This cemetary appears to be linked to the cemetary located behind the Antioch Baptist Church located at 420 McDonough Blvd.

Harriet Turman Smith was a daughter of Helen Reed Turman. I believe Harriet Turman Smiths remains were removed in the 1990ís or the early 2000ís. I have Fulton County Parcel Map of the Cemeteries located there.

Is there any way I can find out why the Harriet Turman Smith cemetery was put there and where she was moved.

Thanks,

RE: more re: Akers
Hi,

I sent you a message yesterday. We solved the mystery. Akers first married Ann Eliz. McGinty and then Mrs. Ann E.Dozier(nee Pitts). The Ann E. name for both was coincidental.

You might want to include this on the posting.

Thanks for your help.

RE: Lucinda Radfield
Reason is that there are ONLY 5 with that name on Findagrave, all of them doubtful.....
A typo perhaps? Bradfield ?

I received your email regarding his burial. He is definitely buried at Congregation Agudas Achim. I sent an email to the original creator and told him we could merge them (he would need to move his memorial) or he could delete his since mine has more information and the funeral home marker. I will let you know when I hear from him. Unfortunately, there are many duplicates because of those two cemeteries.

RE: Ray links at Oakland
Yes I do. May (Mary Slater (Slatter) Ray died 02 Oct 1935 in Jacksonville, FL. Her niece, May Butler Curtiss, and family lived there. Mary F. Slatter (born 1852) married Claudius B. Ray (born 1851) in 1885. She visited her sister Mrs. W.M. Butler (Daisy Bell Slatter) in Nashville along with brother John Thomas Slatter Jr. I have newspaper clippings showing their relationships. The problem with the Census is they don't always spell the names correctly or they're transcribed correctly. The years of their ages tend to be "imaginative."
I remember reading your description of the Cemetery office. At Forest Hills in Chattanooga, they are way more organized, but still I had to ask them where the cremated remains of John Thomas Slatter Jr.'s second wife was interred. She was the last one buried and without a marker. They had to figure that out. She was in with her husband. Possibly that is what happened there in Atlanta.
I can add the "Death Certificate" to her site.

Thanks for letting me know, I have corrected the photo. Sorry for the confusion. I am now double checking before I leave a marker.

RE: edit for Mrs Carroll
Hello, I believe this is William S. Carroll's first wife, Julia Downs Carroll. If she is listed as Mrs. W S Carroll I wasn't sure to change it to Julia. William S. Carroll is my first cousin 3x removed.

RE: George Washington Bolger
Would you please also add (Stone's River) beside the entry next to Murfressboro? Since there were 3 battles at Murfressboro, it might help to clarify just slightly. I had to go re-read the CSSR's. I was thinking he was wounded after Chickamaugua. And it was actually before, and he returned to duty at got himself on the CROH rolls!

I think my dates are correct - if not she would have died before she was born. I almost always look up everything on Ancestry to make sure. I think that is why I have a specific date of birth.

RE: Josephine Wood
The Bessie M - 8/1880 is apparently Dessie M. Wood/McKeown. If you want to type obit, I will remove it. I know about the rules, but wanted you to see it with the name of Hammett for Josephine, also the marriage record. She married him in 1903 and is still going by Hammett in 1915. I found a man names Alexander S. Hammett - he is buried in Dallas, Tx - dates seem correct, but hard to say that it is him.

RE: Corbin siblings, PS
Wow! You mean I am 75 years old and not even claimed as a child of my father and mother and won't be listed for 23 more years! (If I live as long as my aunts, etc,) You have to be dead to be listed as a child of your parents! Wierd! No, I did not know that! Funny they list you in the Obituary then!
Thank you for the tip, no need to try and even check people for any correct family facts!
