Bio and Links
Bio Photo Started genealogy when assisting my son with a Boy Scout Merit Badge about 15 years ago. Cried when I found my grandparents and Uncle Bobby's headstones on here. (Bobby died when he was three.) Michelle

Please feel free to use pictures and information that I post for genealogical purposes only and please give credit. When I fulfill photo requests, I try to get everyone in the same plot and provide extra information to the family. It helps me and I hope that it helps others. Right now, I'm working on Oak Grove in Americus, Sumter County, Georgia and hope to branch out to other area cemeteries in the future.

Also, I am happy to transfer relatives to family members who will care for them even if you are not close relatives. Obviously, the closer relative has the right to care for a memorial before a distant relative but the important thing is for a memorial to be taken care of, added to and for it to reflect the life that it memorializes. Please use the edit tab to request changes or transfers.

Her family is Gatian, Boggs, Henry, Love and Jarvis(Morgantown WV area) and Rehanek, Cowell, Roberts and Hudec(sw PA area) and surrounding lines. His family is Andrews/Anders, Taylor, Hart, Tooke, McKinnis (GA) and Yon, Broom, Parrish, Pate (FL).

Please take moment to visit Michelle's precious parents,
Margaret Patricia Rehanek "Peggy" Gatian and
Roy "Jake" Gatian, Jr
and Ben's wonderful father and step-father
Ben Andrews, Sr and
Bill Wages

and leave a tribute, thought or prayer. We miss them everyday.

RE: re: Rehanek family
You're welcome.
I followed the link on Mrs. Rehanek's memorial to see that Mr. Rehanek was cremated and ashes given to family or friend. There is a marker for him at the family name headstone as well though at East Oak Grove. If you discover his ashes were eventually interred there, I'll delete the memorial I created for him and post the photos to the "he was cremated" memorial, previously created and contact the owner of the memorial to change the burial site (I don't remember who it was, so "heads up" if it's yours). If not, I'll contact a Find A Grave admin to have my memorial marked as a cenotaph in East Oak Grove.

Louisa Donley
You're so welcome!
I'm also guessing that you saw the third marker to the left of Lousia's in the photo. It looked to be a part of that plot and had the same stone style/ characters as the Donleys so it must have been a relative. I added the photos to her memorial as well.

Louisa Donley
I believe I found the marker for Louisa Donley at Garards Fort Cemetery and uploaded a photo to her memorial. I'm fairly certain that this is the marker for Louisa as it is beside Ellsworth's, who is listed as her husband, but the DOD does not match the FindAGrave memorial.
Please let me know if the photo is incorrect and I will remove it for you. If it is correct, then I'm happy to have helped. Have a great day!

RE: re: Julia Taylor Mason and Mellissa Haroson Mason.
Actually my husband is connected to the Taylor family, so will have to pull out some old files and see if he connects to this family. If not, I will transfer to you.

Thank you,

Funeral in Macon of Mrs. T. N. Mason

The interment of Mrs. T. N. Mason, whose funeral services were conducted in Tifton, Thursday, occurred at 4 o'clock in Rose Hill cemetery yesterday afternoon.

The body of Mrs. Mason was accompanied by her son, Mr. E. H. Mason, one of Brunswick's foremost citizens.

Mrs. Mason was laid to rest in the family lot in this city, as the family resided in Macon for many years previous to leaving the city to settle in Tifton about twenty years ago. This estimable lady is mourned by many friends and relatives.

Julia Ann and Melissa Mason
If you want to get into a time out by Find A Grave, just change the name of memorial to something different. I spent 5 months in time out for doing that. So please delete your memorial for Julia Ann and make one for Melissa. We can change the dates without a problem, but, not the names.

I hope you understand and the thing about it, is that is not in the guidelines, anywhere to be found. One day I signed into Find A Grave and could not make any corrections nor add any memorials. No notice of explanation was received. Some told me it was because I had too many UB's. That is unknown burials, some said it was because I did not follow the rules. Like always putting a period next to an initial, however, tells you not to. And because if I ask someone to remove their duplicate or any thing that is wrong, them I am not talking nicely. I don't have time to kiss any ones backside and never mean to sound the way some take it. However, if you step on me, I will step on you.

The rules change at the bat of an eye. I don't know how to work those forums and could not figure out the problem, until one day I tried and got back on FB and then Russ Dodge told me it was because I made memorials, then changed the names. He said you must delete one and make a new one.

I know this sounds weird, if you have not experienced it, but, it was really bad living thru it. So, if you will make a memorial for Melissa and send me the correct info for Julia, I think we will have these under control.

Another thing, you are not supposed to put URL's on the memorial pages either. Never mind that a million out there have them. But, I am the one in a million that gets punished.

RE: re: Gatian family
Your welcome and please feel free to use the photos in your family tree. If you have any other photos you would like from Beverly Hills call the office and get the section and lot number and I will be more than happy to get them for you. Have a wonderful evening.
