Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in Genealogy research far longer than I would like to admit in this bio. Remembering many a happy times spent with my mother in distant libraries and trampling thru overgrown cemeteries, way before the movie "Roots" and the Internet. What fun we had and still have when we can yell outů"I'VE FOUND ONE"
My trees are posted under the names of "The Batchelor Pad" and "The Dennis Menace". There is no better way to connect with distant relatives and make new friends and help others than researching "Our" family lines. It's the pictures and stories I love the most, even if it is just a headstone picture, how they got there is their story.

The areas my research has lead me are: Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Canada, England and Prussia (Germany & Poland).

Please feel free to email me.
Thank you Find-A-Grave for this wonderful venue to our past.

138308971 Callie Edwards
Hi, My name is Roxanne Pitts Jordan. I'm a local volunteer here in Walton Co., Georgia and also a researcher of my own family. I ran across William Moses Edwards's Memorial while entering in some people who hadn't been recorded was wondering if you are related to the Pitts and Edwards from Effingham, Georgia or maybe the ones from Alabama, Illinois, Mississippi, Flordia, Macon Co., Georgia? If related would like to know more on your line and willing to share mine... Even if not I do have William's baby sister Callie Edwards Memorial and will be happy to transfer.
Thanks and goodluck with your research,
Roxie aka Tazgirl

RE: Martins 47939
Good Morning Lu.
Sorry, I donated all of my cemetery books to charity. But, I did not have a Hancock County book and did have a Greene County book. So, If I put them on then most likely they were in Greene County as I have not been to Hancock County.
Sorry for not giving you a more professional answer. Also, I just checked and I did not put that cemetery on, I was helping someone searching 'Martin'.
Best regards, Bud
PS. The books are being categorized now and most likely will go on eBay or Half ebay sometime. I still have my 50+ WV books. BB

Murphy and Cox
Went back and spoke with Odys Garcia at Southern Memorial and this is what information she gave me. Mr.Murphy does own a crypt in the main mausoleum. Unit 2 Tier 2 Crypt 14.It is a tandem. Number 14A/14B. She says there is a Ruth Murphy in there by herself and the other space is reserved for someone else that will eventually go inside with her. She didnot know who but she was sure the person was Ruth Murphy not Cox.

ps. I know who misinformed you because she did the same thing to me twice.

Whenever you call ask for Odys Garcia (SMC)

Ruth and Sam Cox
Hi, went back again to Southern Memorial Cem and had the administrator named Odys Garcia double check again for Ruth and Sam Cox. She Couldnot find their names in the system. She had several other individuals with that same last name but no Ruth or Sam.

Sam Cox and Ruth Cox
Goodmorning, When I went to the cememtary and spoke with an administrator, she informed me that their where three Ruth E.Cox and that if you could tell them if she is related to a James C. Cox (we may have a match).This James C. Cox is apparrently the owner of the Lot. If you could let me know then maybe Sam is with her as well. I will be going back to the cememtary on the 29th of March and I can check.

Good Afternoon.
I might have slipped a few from WV or CT to you by accident. I did catch one Howell and two Reeds that are potential cousins. Other than that it's going smoothly.
Regards, Bud

Good Morning Lu.
Great minds run in the same place.
I remembered having gathered several "Batchelor" in my meandering and was going to offer them to you. I will take a little time with them, but they will all come your way. I gathered all these Georgia memorials while I killed time waiting on the grand kids at pre school. I was the official kid taxi while our son was serving overseas. They are now all in grade school and get official bus rides and I lost my job.
Happy Researching, Bud

Hi Lu.
Love that.
I love that cemetery. I pass it about every week when I go out that way. Back then I was only doing photo requests and finally stopped while some folks were cleaning it up. But, sorry to say Find A Grave seems to have removed my cemetery photos. Anyway, I will stop the next warm day we are out and about and get some family photos for you. Say, can I transfer the "Kents" over to you?
Happy Researching, Bud
