A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS WHO SO POLITELY PUT UP WITH ALL MY ADDITIONAL INFO REQUESTS!|
I live just blocks from Greenwood Cemetery, Orlando, Orange County, FL. It's beautiful, and I'd be happy to take a photo if one is needed. I LOVE going to the cemetery!
I have been actively photographing and documenting the older sections of Greenwood. I am currently going through all their records to make sure we get everyone on findagrave.
I'll gladly transfer management of memorials upon request, no matter what your relation (unless they are my relatives - but I will transfer a relative to a direct descendant if I am not one). I create every memorial with the hope that their family will find them. Every transfer request I receive makes me know its worth it.
Please let me know if you find any errors or I've duplicated a memorial, I'll fix it! It's so important to have dates correct and names properly spelled - but we all make mistakes, and sometimes the markers are very difficult to read.
Feel free to use my photos (with credit to me - Merf works) for your personal genealogical project. My photos are of public places, and of no artistic (I can guarantee that!) merit. I don't believe I "own" a simple snapshot of someone else's grave marker. I volunteer here to SHARE and to make sure memorials are as accurate as possible.
My mother and I are researching our family who settled in Lee, Phillips and Monroe County, Arkansas.
In particular, we are desperately searching for parents and siblings of Thomas Trotter Bonner, who settled in Spring Creek, AR. He married Elizabeth Shackelford Bonner in 1834 in Marengo Co., AL.
Assisting my mom and the Annie H. Darracott UDC Chapter out of Lakeland, Polk Co, FL in the documentation of Confederate Veterans.
Completing FAG entries for Greenwood Cemetery using various sources including cemetery records and undertaker records. I'm only concentrating on the lettered, older sections.
Family surnames: Allen, Allred, Bonner, Coble, Estes, Gaines, Garrison, Gearhart, Gower, Hale, Harris, Higginbotham, McGee, Mauney/Mooney, Ottertail, Raymer, Redditt, Waldron, Walker, Whitfield

Do you know why it shows "half sibling?"
|Molly McElroy||McElroy baby|
The 1900 Federal Census shows my great grandparents had a third child, two living. But we knew no more about him.
I just noticed the find a grave for him and we cannot thank you enough for the service you do families by plotting Greenwood.
|Molly McElroy||Jill McElroy York|
First of all, thank you so much for the Find a Grave for my sister Jill.
Several months ago in coming across Jill's obit I was surprised to see I did not mention our mother when I wrote it. I was so busy putting down information about my father's family.
After "daughter of" could you add "Ann Mary Tegder whose family moved to Orlando in 1923 and".
And somewhere, " Jill's maternal grandfather J. Carl Tegder, a former Orlando City Commissioner, developed the Palm Terrace area in College Park"
|Sandra Adams||RE: Bakers at Tangerine|
I went out to Greenwood today. The lady in the office told me Douglas is buried in Section Q. His full name, I found out from them, is Edward Douglas Adams. She said that he does have a headstone. I walked it from one end to the other today twice and found nothing. The office was closed so I couldn't go back and see if she made a mistake. The dates on Edward Douglas is the same as ours, so I am sure that it is. When you are out there, could you look also? Also I am almost certain that my grandfather is buried in that one also. His name is John R. Sutton, Sr., my dad was Jr. I never met him due to his drinking. Dad wouldn't let him anywhere around us. But I would like to have the picture of the grave for genealogy. I haven't checked to see if you have done him yet or not. I can post it or wait. Let me know. Thanks!
|Sasha||RE: Warren William Lewis|
Thanks for your reply. Sorry it has taken awhile to get back to you, but I have been under the weather.
I do not know if Margie Lewis is alive.
Yes, you may transfer Warren, Lula and Samuel to me.
Thanks for all your hard work and time spent (on f-a-g and in finding information on ancestors). It is very much appreciated.

|Patty Foster||RE: Thanks!|
I know. Sometimes I can't figure out how I do it, but I do.
|Sandra Adams||RE: Bakers at Tangerine|
When are you going to be going back to Greenwood?
|Todd Whitesides||Lucia Southgate|
Thanks for connecting her with her parents, and for the transfer, but most importantly, for adding her memorial in the first place. I certainly appreciate your contributions to Find A Grave.
|gleasonfamily||RE: Harris - Greenwood|
Thank you for offering these Harris/Gingles transfers. Would appreciate any in their plot. Then, I can do the family connections. If you prefer to keep the memorials, happy to send you the connections.
|Rick Bennett||RE: Adams Infant|
Evidently Elsie died in 1961. Thanks Rick
