Levin Layfield
Your very complete record on Levin Layfield and his service is much appreciated. My grandfather, Henry J. Ruffin, was in Hilliard's, but Co. D. I'd not known of this connection before. Henry J. Ruffin married Winnie Virginia Jinks (d/o Nicey and Willis) Nicey's sister was Mary Winney Martin who married George Layfield, who I believe was Levin's older brother. The Layfields, Herricks, Martins, Jinks, and Ruffins have so many interconnections in Taylor Co GA. I'm working today on all of those families and their CSA service.

William Forshee
Abigail Vining Forshee
Hi Blythe,

My name is William Forshee, Abigail was my gggrandmother, her son Elisha, Jr. was my ggrandfather. From my father's recollection we know her as Abigail Lavinne Hodge Forshee. It has to be the same lady. My father said she was born in 1828 and died in 1950, so the dates are close. I'm looking to find her father-in-law. I think it was John Forshee of Houston County, Ga and later perhaps Macon County, Ga.? Do you have anything further?

Henry Rayford Adams
Hi Blythe, Uncle Rayford was my great uncle, I have added his Mother, Annabelle Garrett Adams and his sister, Lucille Adams Lee to the Bloodworth Cemetery if you want to link them to your/our Uncle. Lucille was my grandmother, so I believe we are probably step-cousins. I have been working on a narrative of our family history for almost 20 years, if you have any stories or info you like to share I would be very grateful. -Kay Roof

Contributed "two photos" of him to F.A.G., assuming you are referring to the one as an "adult." It was my Dad (dec'd.) who found the photo and believe it appeared in the book, "Fulton County Sketches ~ Memoirs of Georgia (pp. 903-904). He was the "nephew" of my gr gm Orvilla (Rogers) Hape (m. Dr. Samuel Hape), Atlanta and Hapeville, GA. Would be interested in getting the article you had mentioned, "Christmas Shopping in the Confederacy, 1901."

Greens at Providence Methodist
If you have not visited Providence's page in the last several days please do so. There are a number of Greens buried close to Ira's grave to include his Mother. I took pictures of those Greens and made memorials. If you need those photos please use them as you wish.

Pvt. Levin Layfield ~ Oakland Cemetery
Requested a photo of Levin Layfield's tombstone sometime ago. Got a message this evening that there is "no records" of Levin Layfield being buried in the cemetery. So you probably should change the status as "buried unknown."

Perry Watson
You are correct as to Perry's father. I just picked that up the other day, also from the will. I will change it asap.

Blythe Memorials
Thank you so much for taking over the management of these memorials. I just transferred the 5 from Junction City Cemetery that you requested. It is so good to see memorials managed by those who knew and loved them. Let me know if there are any others you want or if there is anything I can do to help you. Gordon
