I'm retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs and living in Douglasville, GA -- in the same county where my ancestors were pioneer settlers ca. 1830.
Since 2006 I have served as Chairman of the Douglas County Cemetery Preservation Commission. We have about 50-60 old, abandoned cemeteries in the county -- some of them very well concealed back in the woods. Each one is now cleaned at least once a year by the cemetery commission and a crew of county jail inmate trustees. I'm in the perfect job to be taking photographs of tombstones and providing information about them.
Phillips Family Cemetery I just logged into the memorial that I created for my gg grandmother, Martha Jones Phillips, to add to the bio. Had not checked it in awhile. What a wonderful thing that the Douglas County Cemetery Preservation Commission has done. Thank you very much for cleaning the cemetery, finding Martha's foot-stone and for putting up the signage. It is my understanding that there may be more graves there but they are not marked.
80903958 Mary Elizabeth Hildebrand McLarty Hello! I was wondering if I could please copy your photo of the Hildebrand siblings to a family tree I'm doing for a family friend. Their relative is Martha Hildebrand Leathers, wife of Peter Kennedy Leathers. It's a fabulous photo!
