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.

Dear Birdgirl,
Thank you for the beautiful memorials you left for my great-grandfather, William V. Armistead, especially the regimental flag. This is part of our history and it's sad that it has been co-opted as a symbol of hate. I have four Civil War ancestors (two on each side!) and respect all their contributions as they did what they felt was right...not to mention some from the Revolution and War of 1812. I hope to make some more connections with lost kinfolks in my travels south this fall. Thank you for all you do!
Best, D

I know the W. stands for White. She hated that - Pearl White. : )

Trying to find out what the Dorothy's middle initial L. was for...

RE: Nalley / Lee
Yes, Daddy got polio when he was 6. Ironically, we live right down the road from Warm Springs now, where he spent quite a bit of time. He didn't let polio slow him down, though. He was assistant superintendent for Barrow County Schools when he died of lung cancer (on my 30th birthday). He deer hunted in a tree stand, with help from his cousin Eddie to get him up there. Taught me how to water ski. Coached baseball, basketball and football, all to championships. Learned to pilot small aircraft. Drove a race car. Pretty much anything he wanted to do. Between me and my brother, Deron, we have 11 kids and he only got to see two. He would have been an amazing grandfather and so proud of them all.

RE: Nalley / Lee
I will definitely do that. My email is My mother is Marilyn Lee, and even though this information is from Daddy's side of the family, she is just as fascinated. They married when she was only 18. Her father was already gone and her mother died soon after, so Daddy's family was hers too.

Nalley / Lee
Hi Birdgirl. I was wondering what your name was. I think we are related. My great-grandmother was Flora Bessie Still Nalley. My grandmother (Mama Pat) was her daughter Pearl White "Pat" Nalley Lee. My daddy was Mike Lee (Thomas Michael Lee).

I wanted to thank you so much for all your work with our family. You have contributed greatly to my family tree on

Do you know anything about my great aunt Dorothy Nalley? She died at 18 from a ruptured appendix. My cousin Judy Beckum Mauldin (mom was Katherine "Kat" Nalley Beckum) gave me copies of some heartbreakingly beautiful letters from her boyfriend (Toby Edwards). He was 19 and wanted to marry her. They met at Atlanta School of Commerce on Peachtree Street but she died so soon. I saw Toby's wife's obit and found out he died in 1972. Those letters were so touching - I cried like a baby reading them.

I grew up in Winder, GA, but live in Columbus, GA now. My mother is still in Winder and wants to meet you! Where do you live?

Thanks again for your tireless work,
Sandi Lee McCann
