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.

Slow speed
Is it just me or has F.A.G. website slowed down? If it had always been this slow I would still be on the first 1,000 memorials or would have given up.

RE: Kathleen Case Ivester
Thanks for adding the picture. I agree. I think a lot of people don't know that if you have a pre-purchased marker, you still have to make the arrangements to have the death date added. My uncle didn't know that when my grandfather died. I noticed 3 months after the funeral that the death date was still not on the marker. I went to the office to ask about it and they said no one ever came in to have it done. I had to provide proof of death date. My uncle thought it was automatically done when the funeral arrangements were made. I think this happens a lot.

Earle Talmadge Crowe Jr.
I am trying to find Earle Talmadge Crowe Jr, which believe he was called "Sonny". He lived in Charlotte and at one point moved to Gainesville GA to work at Riverside Military Academy and then returned to Charlotte. I believe his wife was named Claire. Do you have any information about his sister or his children. I am related on the Crowe Side. My great-grandmother, Columbia Lee Crowe Deaton was a sister to Earle Talmadge Crowe Sr. Thanks so much.

Photo deleted.
Thanks for pointing that out Susan.
Good Catch!
Very confusing with those two James Boyes's dying 10 days apart and buried in the same cemetery. I imagine they were family, but I don't know how they related. (Oh, that poor family.)

Honbarger's of North Carolina
Hi, Susan, I found the Find A Grave memorial for a Luther Honbarger, son of John V. Honbarger,and I'm wondering if he had a brother or half brother named Harlan Vasco "Bill" Honbarger? I don't know if you are related or just created the memorial site doing your volunteer work? I am trying to find any relatives/children of Harlan...I believe my mother may have been married to him in the early 1940s before she married my father. I can find several marriage and divorce records for this Harlan V. Honbarger but none list my mother, Della. If you have any information, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, LLaPage

RE: Eugenia Holton #33105405
I added a note-that I needed proof.
I always require proof of a change.
We don't have any choices of the first line- so I used the closest to what I wanted, and on the line under it- I ask for proof.

I will be glad to change it or add to it-or whatever- but require proof.

(Census records, death record or whatever)

Thank you for posting Farr information. This is my mom's line, and I'm too far away (mile-wise) to have taken photos for myself. Thank you again!
