Bio and Links
Bio Photo Currently working on virtual Cemeteries for Forsyth Co, Fannin Co and Dawson Co, GA CSA soldiers. If you have a relative that served in either County and he is not on my list, let me know and I'll be happy to add. These brave men deserve all the honor and respect we can give to them; God knows they didn't get any when they returned home; or left dying and dead on the battlefields, buried on the battlefield, in woods, or in shallow forgotten graves. And definitely not from the general public in today's world of PC or those intent on rewriting history and destroying anything remotely related to the Confederacy! To date I have 50 CSA soldiers that I am directly related to and continue to search for more.

Duplicate memorials: if I have made one, let me know; I will ask FAG administrators to merge into one. They have been very helpful in the past to merge duplicate memorials. When FAG administrators merge two memorials, none of the flowers, etc. are deleted. If you have made a duplicate memorial of one of my memorials, please be kind enought to delete when asked to do so or ask FAG to merge your memorial with mine.

Thanks to everyone who have left flowers and notes on my Uncle: Augustus (Gus or Junior) Byrd (# 48422763), who died in a Japanese Prison Camp in 1943. This brave soldier as well as all others who have served and/or given their life for their Country, in any war or act of aggression, deserve all the honor and respect we can give them.

NO Death certificates, please! Although permisable by FAG, they really are in poor taste and take up space that could be used for photos.

Special thanks to all FAG members who have so graciously transferred memorials to me. Your kindness and generosity are very much appreciated.

RE: Augustus Byrd, Jr.

It is my honor to visit Augustus's memorial. He paid the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedom. I know the grief of losing a child, but I also know where my child's body is buried. I can't fathom having your child cremated and disposed of and not knowing where he was placed. War is cruel. Thank you for visiting Zane's memorial. It is appreciated. May you have a great weekend!

Thomas and Isabella Giles
My search for these ancestors found records that contradict their dates of death on their tombstones in the Walnut Grove Methodist Cemetery in Walton County, GA.

1. 1870 census dated Aug 15, shows Thomas age 77 and Isabella age 75;
2. record War of 1812 Pension & Bounty Land Warrant application files shows death of soldier as Dec 17, 1875; residing in Newton Co. post ofc. Covington, GA
3. another pension document indicates Isabella was alive March 4, 1876.

I'm somewhat new to Find A Grave but I believe we are 4th cousins through Thomas Bird (Me through Lee Bird). I'm searching for info on my great grandmother Sophrany Adelaide Tucker Byrd (m. William T. Byrd) and thought you might help. Thanks
