Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am semi-retired, again, after having retired once from the Air Force, and have quite a bit more time now to devote to Find-A-Grave network.

I was raised in the Talbot, Marion, Taylor County areas of Georgia.

I plan to busy myself in aiding those requesting photos or other services in my geographic area which will more or less include Newton, Rockdale and Walton counties here in Georgia. These areas are on the eastern side of Atlanta metro.

If I can be of service to anyone, I will do my best to help. Hopefully, in the near future I will have more time to provide.

If I have established a memorial which you wish to be transferred to you to maintain, please do not hesitate to let me know. E-mail me direct if you wish. All photos I have submitted can be considered public domain and reused in the furtherance of ancestral quests.

I have an extensive tree made up of Harts, Hansons, Hays, Cookes, and their lineage into South Carolina. Also a tree made up of Bacles, Parkers, Willis's, Smiths in the Georgia, LA, SC areas.

-------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care.
It's much too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died, and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew,
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: Missour Claayton Battle Shehee
Sent a previous message and wanted to add that I don't feel the need to own family members memorial. Do appreciate when updates are made. It's up to you whether to transfer Shehee memorials.

Ricky Morris
Hi Gordon,

I transferred Ricky to your care - he was not known to me, I just came across his final resting place one day and noticed no record of it. I think it's good if everyone has a place to be remembered - I hope you and his family can fill up his bio with wonderful stories and memories.

Another misspell
I have not heard you admit you misspelled these memorials. I have not had this many changes in 2 years. Maybe I will just delete all of mine in that cemetery.

Duplicates
I always check before I add a memorial. I have a sneaky suspicion you spelled the name wrong and changed it! I remember this well. I rarely if ever have a duplicate and maybe if you add without a photo you should know how to spell it.

Looking at the directions on this cemetery, I see your note at the bottom:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2502475

I don't live in that area, so can't help much, and I see you don't live around there anymore, either. However, going just by the directions:
"Across double bridges, down road from Jim Wiggins", I found a couple of James Wiggins in Marion County tax records online, on Wiggins Rd and Tymes Rd. Just down the road from them, at the end of Double Bridges Rd, I found a cemetery marked on a topographic map at gps coords: 32.224975, -84.589618.
Based on just those directions, that sounds like it might be it. But the map doesn't list a name and I don't find anything else on it, so it'll take someone actually visiting those coords to find out what cemetery it is by verifying any of the names on the headstones.

(**) Thank You. I went back after I cut and pasted the Michael Watson Will for you and thought you might like to see where I got it.
