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 findagerave.com. Hope all of you do the same...as we all get a lot from this web site. Gerry in Albany Georgia
Some of my lines are: 1st 6 generations Aycock, Aven (2),Brown,Cannon, Causey, Gray,Hooks,McMichael,Raines,Roberts, Scarborough next 6 Abercrombie, Armour,Broughton,Carter, Cheshire, Fitzgerald,Greene, Hale,Hall,Hamilton, Harris(2) Jackson,Jenkins, Lamar,Mathis,Merritt, Morris, Pridgeon,Riley(2),Scarborough,Underwood, Wilson
My folks came through Greene Co Ga, for the most part, to Marion, Crawford, Harris,Taylor, Talbot,Putnam,Hancock, and other middle Ga counties to finally land in Terrell, Randolph,Mitchell..and other S Ga. Some few in Columbia, Richmond and other counties. I will be glad to check my very, very large data base for you.(With proper names and dates information, no just surname.)

RE: Cemetery Hi Gerry, Sorry for the delay in replying. Please give me a name in the wrong cemetery so that I can locate it. I remember this being a cemetery that someone asked me to make memorials for but I do not live in that area. I would like to do everything possible to have everyone memorialized in the right location.
RE: Brown I remember now. Someone requested a photo of her mother in law's grave, which is next to her. Whenever I take volunteer photos, I always check to see if the family members buried nearby are photographed. They weren't so while I was there I took pictures of all of their graves as well. I also have access to a lot of the old cemetery records and obituaries in this area, so I added them too and requested the familial links. I'm sorry to report that Mrs. Whitfield's vault is in poor shape. Part of the top has caved in and broken through the casket. The City of Brunswick owns and maintains the cemetery but, as the graves are considered private property, they leave those repairs up to the family.
RE: Picture Hey Gerry, I have the 2015 family reunion book and examine the family tree and Isaiah and how he and other fits in the whole picture. I will email you and see if I can get it to you. Thanks.
RE: Leila Pritchett Speir I went to Cedar Hill Cemetery this morning and located Joshua Henry Speir. His foot stone was beside Leila Pritchett Speir. His marker had not been recorded. I have added him to Find a Grave as well as a photo of his foot stone. Thank you for calling this to my attention. ESJ
