Bio Photo I was born in Graves, Dawson, Terrell, Ga Aug 17 1937, and I have been "into" Genealogy over 37 years,and will continue as long as I am able.My lines migrated to Georgia and stayed here.
Each time I come upon a grave record in my genealogy,I stop and check to see if it is entered. Each time I pass or visit a cemetery,I take pictures and information and enter them if they are not on,in Hope all of you do the we all get a lot from this web site.

Philip Augustin Clayton # 46166224
Gerry, the spelling with one 'l' of all the Philips (there are many) in this particular Clayton family, is a result of the naming of the very first Philip (1702-1786) ever in the Clayton family, after his maternal grandfather, my 8th great-grandfather, Philip Pendleton (1654-1721)who came to this country in the 1600s.

It is a distinguishing factor in tracing the family. Now if there were only some simple way besides Roman numerals or jr.jr.jr to recognize the generations of Samuels...

I've added a portrait to the memorial and if you'd please correct the spelling, my southern cousins and I, along with future generations, would be most grateful.

RE: Findagrave
FYI... Below is an article regarding Lamars that were members at Old Harmony Baptist church, Autauga County. There were LAMARs in Autauga County pretty early. Larry Caver

RE: John Lamar Grave
My earlier response was based on your edit submitted to Find -A-Grave (see below):

Their suggestion:
Can you tell me how you know John died in Autauga Al? I know he was there in the last census he was in, but I show he actually died in Dallas Co. I am not sure how close they are.

RE: John Lamar Grave
Did not mean to sound offensive. You had originally inquired or questioned whether he died in Dallas County. John Lamar, as far as we know, lived in Western Autauga County. He and wife were members of the Old Harmony Baptist Church which is not far from their family cemetery.

John Lamar Grave
Please note that the memorial I placed on Find-A-Grave for John Lamar is for a real grave. The transcriptions are straight from the grave markers. He and his wife were buried in Western Autauga County near the present-day Evergreen Community. The two graves are on the edge of a field/property line now owned by the Bishop Family.

RE: Edit
If you could give me the memorial number & the name for the person you wish this info added to, I will do my best to get it added.

Thank you.

RE: Thanks
You are very welcome. This is one thing that makes this so enjoyable. I love the "puzzles " and even more so notes like yours.

Thank you.
