|Bio and Links|
My wife and I have been doing genealogy work for many years and with the help of many we have made great strides in research. If you are visiting our site and see a link to any family grave listed in our virtual cemeteries, please email. Others listed as memorials are not our personal family lines, this information was gathered from other sources. |
DELETIONS: Creation of memorials are not meant to offend, but are only placed for information and research purposes. IF you have a family member listed and do not want that memorial public, or picture, please notify and we will be happy to delete.
CORRECTIONS: Please use the "edit" tab to make corrections or provide links. We would be happy to add other biographical information. Please be professional in any other request.
TRANSFERS: Will be considered according to Find-A-Grave guidelines. Your request should be made from the page you wish to have transferred using the Suggest A Correction (SAC) form, please include your FAG ID# as well as the individual link FAG ID#.
CONTRIBUTE: Be involved, contribute (don't duplicate memorials) to the community by searching out your area, libraries, etc.. for graves that have not been located. Don't just use Find A Grave, asking for transfers, and not contributing in some manner. If this is your only intention FAG provides a way for you to collect memorials, by way of creating a "Virtual Cemetery". This will allow you to bring together information and family names.
You can see videos of certain cemeteries and family sites I have created at:
If you use information from any grave site or cemetery please site your source when available. Also, become a volunteer and work on a cemetery near you. Your work will benefit so many others.
Thank you for your help. With all of us working together we can do so much more with our family histories.
Have a blessed day.
Yours in research, SOF <><

|Kendall Sparkman||RE: Thomas Washington|
It was just a reference link to his grandson who changed his name to that of sons William and Sumner (notes are there on the Page link). Since Page's parents are not be found as to demise, it establishes a connection to Thomas' last remaining child, Marcharina. Just a footnote should you wish to consider it.
|Don Leuty||RE: Virgil Amelia Chaffin|
Also, my aunt's research notes indicate that in an interview with Belle Caffin Ricter named her 2nd daughter, Virgil Amelia Richter after her.
She was the granddaughter of Bat Millhollon, the first Sheriff of Hopkins County, Texas and Elizabeth Lindley, the first daughter of Jacob Marion Lindley and Alsey Ruth Gibson
|Kendall Sparkman||RE: Vestal Cemetery|
I think I have it figured out. The David Vestal cemetery was the one bulldozed. The Aaron Vestal cemetery, across the street, I think, from the McLean Cemetery is the one in shambles. (I have to switch some postings.) You have a chance, please check out the latter, and I will try to help you with family relationships (a lot of initials there). From what I hear, the latter may be gone also before long. There are also not postings or pictures from the Green (GH) Fitzgerald cemetery, and I hear that it is another one on the endangered list. Hope this helps. Thanks.
|Kendall Sparkman||RE: Vestal Cemetery|
I believe Mike Watkins found this cemetery and it was in shambles. Many monuments lost or marked only with initials as I recall. I have lost my notes in a computer crash and will need to recheck with him. Many of the markers I listed were evidently found in 1963, and I found references to those being bulldozed over. Also, there are two Vestal cemeteries in Maury, and not being from the area, I wonder if there is some confusion between the two. I believe the one Mike found was primarily the family of Aaron Vester and Elizabeth Sparkman and possibly across the street from McLean Cemetery.
|Martha Churchill||RE: McLean|
Martha McLean wrote a letter to her son Francis Lane McKindley on March 9, 1850; here is an excerpt (her spelling was terrible)
"Mary Ann was in good health I belief if my memory write she weighed 1 hundred and sixty and Ebenezar's wife 1 hundred and eighty they have some fat folks their..."
She also wrote:
"Your uncle james [probably James McLean] went to Livingston county michigan."
Martha McLean was very interested in plants, gardens, trees, farm animals, and fruit trees. I got the info on Martha McLean's letters from a cousin, Jack McKindley, a genealogist descended from Francis Lane McKindley. He is my grandfather's second cousin. He is the one who enabled me to identify the tintype of Martha McLean, which came from a photo album that was passed down in my mother's family. I put that tintype on the internet and I am happy to see it is on the Find a grave site for her.
|Barbara Arceneaux||RE: Chevra Thilim Memorial Park|
Oh I assumed you lived here in NOLA. I love the Jewish Cemeteries. They remind me of Wisconsin. In ground burials. My goal is to finish them by the end of the year. I have just finished photographing Beth Israel #2 so I am on to that one! I love Find A Grave. I just started doing this and I am sad I haven't started earlier. If I can ever help you out just let me know!
|D.J.||RE: Parker Family Rockdale|

That would be fine with me. I think some of the problem is due to the fact it is called different things by different people. I wonder if find-a-grave allows for multiple references. It's a little funny because this isn't the easiest cemetery to find. Now that I think about it, I think it is actually located on what is part of Panola Park. I seem to recall that my husband and I had to talk to park rangers to gain permission to the cemetery. I don't think many people do this but we did because someone had told us it would be wise because of the location.
I found my Great great great great Grandpa on here.
|Kelly Guess||Stanley Alexander Cemetery|
I will have to do some checking. If memory serves me correctly, it is located right at the Rockdale/Henry County lines. I went and photographed graves at the request of someone in 2011 and uploaded them to the cemetery that was with the request. I had taken additional pictures of some graves in the immediate vicinity of the graves requested and made memorials because none existed in that group. It appears that this cemetery has been replicated. I will try to remember to check the cemetery books at the genealogical society on Friday. I did not intentionally duplicate your memorials and will remove them after I figure out what has happened.
