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!

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.

Ruth Black
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.
