Jeanette Miller Metzger
I see that you are not necessarily related to the people whose memorials you post, but I am very interested in knowing more about Jeanette and her family, as my g2grandfather Conrad Miller was supposedly her nephew, and was living with Jeanette and her husband in 1850, when he was a teenager. I've searched familysearch and ancestry, based on the parents and other information contained in the memorial and not getting anywhere. I would love more information about where/how you got the information contained in the memorial so that I can track down Conrad's parents. Thank you so much for posting this memorial. It really contains a gold mine of information.

Thank you for your quick response and for your research into this matter. I really appreciate volunteers like you who are willing to take the time make this material available.

Norman Lawshe
I am wondering if this could be the son of Peter Freeland Lawshe and Julia Ann Cotton Lawshe. Peter and Julia had a son named Norman who was born about 1860 in Rochester, Olmsted County, Minnesota. The family moved to Atlanta, Georgia between 1880 and 1889. Both Peter and Julia are buried at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, where Norman is buried. Siblings of Norman were Cecelia F. Lawshe Vandusen, Edgar A. Lawshe, Carrie Estella Lawshe, Alice Rosalie Lawshe Thornton, Charles Whitney Lawshe, Clarence F Lawshe, Paul Lawshe, Frank C Lawshe and Mabel Lawshe. Cecilia and Edgar were born in Indiana and Carrie, Alice, Charles, Clarence and Norman were born in Minnesota. Paul, Frank and Mabel were born in Georgia.

Hey Linda, I can never thank you enough for all the great work you've done at Oakland. I've been contacted by a relative of one of our soldiers and I was hoping you'd be on the lookout for his stone in particular. His name is Edwin Walker Jackson of the 45th Alabama Infantry. Again, Thank You so very much.

This will bother me until I find the citation! So I'll send to you as soon as I track it down.

RE: Richard Bowie
Well .... as I sent that to you I thought, hmmmm how unlike me (I'm a librarian) to not have the citation. So I've been looking high and low for it. I'm almost certain it was published in the "Planters Advocate" but I cannot prove it at the moment. There is a much briefer obit in the Baltimore Sun. Guess I'll need to order up a copy of Volume 1 of the Baltz's book "Prince George's County Maryland: Marriages and Deaths" which includes material from all the local PG County newspapers.

RE: Rush Tarwater Lewis
Actually I have done some deed research on the Lewis homeplace in Warren Co Tn and believe I have finally found the actual names instead of initials. Rush belonged to a family that apparently came to Tn with or at the same time as George and Margaretta did. From PA. Sarah Rush is actually Margaretta's Mother, Sarah Barnes who remarried William Rush. Took me a while to puzzle that one out! The Rush family intermarridd at least one other time when George Lewis brother Edward married Martha Rush Dunton. She also was found living in Warren Co with the Lewis family when she became widowed. She is buried in PA. Geo and Marg are buried in Clarksville, Tn. Still no clue where Edward is buried. I recently ordered a new headstone for Mary H Lewisas it was missing. Once it is placed at Nashville City Cemetery I will take a pic and try to upload it.

Linda, I added the bio you suggested. Would you like a transfer?

RE: Bio info for John nelson
You sent me a suggestion to add to the memorial for John Nelson at the Ellensburg WA IOOF cemetery. I have one question to ask before I do that.

In the information you sent me you state that he moved to "Great Falls, ND" Is it really North Dakota or did you mean Montana? I await your reply before I add your information to the memorial. You can contact me directly at

RE: speer photos oakland
not at all by now. I often have to get the staff to try and find persons. There are a surprising amount of graves that are unmarked. Also If there is nothing to shoot I get the marker closest to the spot - but I will note that.

I tried to get help from the sextants office. I only use photoshot to try and bring out detail when something is hard to read.

RE: jasper nix
Excellent catch. I had linked his son, and my request for name change to the incorrect memorial 47707183, instead of 61295626. Corrections made, please cancel my request. Thanks, Bryce

RE: Lafayette Harper
Lafayette Harper (as the story goes)fathered a child out of wedlock to my 18 year old GGG aunt in 1881. Her brother, John Tate Farrington, confronted him on the streets of Charlotte, about his refusal to marry her & own up to what he had done. When John approached Lafayette, they exchanged words, Mr. Harper drew a gun & shot John in the face. John, drew his weapon, they exchanged gunfire back & forth in the street & when it was finished, Mr. Harper lay dead with two shots to the chest & John hit by just that first shot to the jaw. John was subsequently charged with murder, plead self defense, was put on trial & acquitted 7 months later. The story made headlines in papers all over the country. He later became Captain of the Charlotte police department & quite the prominent citizen in his day.

I am curious as to the Lafayette Harper headstone image. My ancestor was the man who shot & killed him in February 1881. Are you related or was that a photo request? Thank you.

Thanks for your help.

I sent an edit for the day of death to match the gravestone that shows the 28th.

Also sent an edit to link to the father.

Will check back in a couple of days to see if these edits are accepted and then delete the memorial page I created if the edits are accepted.

Linda, Thanks for letting me know - I fixed her as the child to go along with the obituary. Please write to the fellow about the duplication - would you? Thanks again - hope all is right now. Appreciate all your hard work.

Albert M. Thrasher
Dear Mr. Ferree, I would very much appreciate it if you would consider removing the photo of the tombstone for Albert M. Thrasher which you posted just two months ago. It is a duplicate of a photo that was placed therea couple of years ago.
Albert is my great uncle and since I became involved with Find A Grave a few months ago, have been placing family photos. I have a wonderful photo of Uncle Albert and have no space to enter it. Thank you. John Thrasher
