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.

Military records
My name is Susan Branon and I too live in Charlotte,NC. In fact, I am a fourth generation Charlottean. I am trying to find out information about my father-in-law's military service in WWI in Paris. Yes, that is WWI. He was nearly 50 when my husband was born! If you could lead me to links that would provide information I would greatly appreciate it. I am a member of but am just learning how to negotiate the site. I found you through this site after locating the page about his grave in Sharon Memorial cemetery.
Thanks so much.

I was researching my Mother's side of my family and came across the find a grave for my Grandmother and Grandfather. Thank you so much for the picture and contribution. I live out of state and I have not been able to visit their grave. You don't know how much this means to me that someone took the time to take a photo and submit it. It brought tears!! Thank you again!

Thank you so much for documenting the gravestone of my father. Sharon Memorial ordered his marker and his name was spelled wrong and nobody caught it until I saw it on the find a grave website. Thank you! They since have ordered a new one and said that it is now spelled correctly. Could you possibly update the picture?

Thank you for taking picture of my grandfather's grave. He was my grandfather on my father's side. I never know who was his first wife Dell. She died before my father was married to my mother.

Sgt Daniel Allison Cariker
I've been working on my maternal aunt's husband's family. She and Frank Sweeney Cariker have one biological first cousin, Coleman McLean Cariker. Sgt Daniel Allison Cariker is Coleman's second great-grandfather. I see that you have created a memorial that is a duplicate. Were you aware of that? I would like to keep working on linking this part of my family tree together. Can you check the dates on this memorial and memorial #32392358 Sgt Daniel Allison Cariker?
Thank-you in advance for your time.
