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: Shrilda Johnson
You got me curious about Matt Johnson. I will go to the library this week at look at the deathe certificate for the one buried in Riverside Cemetery.

Shrilda Johnson
There is a Matt Johnson about the right age to be Shrilda's husband buried in the Riverside Cemetery with a wife named Carrie. Do you think this was her husband and his second wife?

RE: Roy Johnson
I don't know anything about him other than what I could find in the records at Ancestry. I just happened to run across his obituary in the old newspapers. I thought he might have been related to the other Johnsons from Pleasant Hill, but then I found his birth records from Kentucky. He's probably one of the indigent burials in the cemetery and I have no idea who his wife might be since the obit didn't give a name. Thanks for making all the updates!

Jackson Family Cemetery
Gee, this is a tough one! There is no Jackson Family Cemetery listed in the new Graham County cemetery book by Bryan Aldridge, but I highly suspect it is also known as the Rattler Cemetery which is located on Indian land on Jackson Branch Road off Massey Branch Rd. For respect of the Indian culture, the exact location of the cemetery is not disclosed. Jackson is the name of several Snowbird Indians and Raymond Jackson is buried in the Rattler Cemetery. I will ask Bryan if the cemetery is also called Jackson Family Cemetery.

RE: Hello
I totally agree! I am quite active as a member of the Georgia SCV and write articles for them on occasion. I am upset that others would try and erase our ancestor's history and I will be in the battle to insure that this doesn't happen.........Paul
