Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have lived most of my adulthood in Charlotte, North Carolina. Coincidentally I ended up right where my roots are on my father's side of the family. Genealogy is my passion and I never met a cemetery I didn't like. I'm also into historic preservation, both of buildings and the lives of people no longer with us.

As the daughter of a general and great-granddaughter of 3 Confederate veterans, I like to note military records of veterans on their findagrave memorials.

I welcome corrections/additions, but will no longer link to a "burial unknown" person. I have found this leads to duplicates.

FAMILIES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE: Irwin, DeWeese, Blackwelder, Babcock, Taylor, Wilbon.

FAMILIES ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE: Bryan, Battle, Pope, Atkinson, Yarbrough, Chappell.

Landon Walker daughter obit
Susan: This obit in the local paper caught my eye. When I saw she was the daughter of a Walker from North Carolina, I had to check findagrave & lo & behold, her father is 1 of your posts. I assume you want to know. ALLEN WALKER

I am sending you a handmade award -

THE MOUNT ZION Mixup Award is awarded to Susan Grillis for her dedication on photographing, correcting, and researching those burials at Mount Zion Community / Methodist Cemeteries.

I know how hard you had to work on these and I was so happy every time I saw an edit or a photo. So glad for all you did so I made you an award! :-)

RE: Alice Cuthbertson Maye
Hi Susan,
I have her original birth certificate. Her name on it is Alice Lawrence Cuthbertson, born to Arthur Vance Cuthbertson and Alice Lee Lawrence. My mother and her brothers also know this to be her name, and her sister, whom you have no record of on here, confirmed that as well. Bonnie has never been a part of her name to anyone's knowledge. Do you have a copy of the birth record that you are referencing? Thank you!
