RE: Theodocia Dosie Collins Massey
Yes, there are graves that just have stones with no names on them. I haven't been up to the cemetery in a couple of years but will soon be going to my brothers burial. I will try to look for your grandmothers stone.

Unfortunately I have no information on Henry John Jeffcoat's ancestors. If I do discover something I will let you know. Pat

Dicey Springfield memorial page
Hi Andrew,
I see that you sponsor the page for Laodicea Langston Springfield. And that you are interested in DNA. By any chance are you related to this family. Because I am the co-admin for the Springfield family DNA project on and would like to talk more if this is your family line. Whether you are related by the Langston or Springfield line. Please contact me at
Thank you,
Sarah Springfield Perry

Inactive members
Andrew, make a virtual cemetery with all the members of your family that are by inactive persons. Just the one... Then send an email message to Attach the virtual cemetery in the message of your email, explain the circumstances of why you need them... That you are a family member and you would like to manage their memeorials. Explain specifically that the originator is inactive, or deceased.

It will take approximately a month, but they will check them out and then transfer to you... This is how I got my family members from a deceased member...

Hope this helps...

Lt. James Starrett
Andrew, I'm going to share this on my friends' page. Will be an exciting event. Thought you might be interested to see.

Habersham County’s Lt. James Starrett, Soldier of the American Revolution is recognized.
The Samuel Elbert Chapter, the Joseph Habersham Chapter Sons of the American Revolution, and the Tomochichi Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution are finally marking the grave of Lt. James Starrett and his wife Nancy Cooper. The unveiling of the markers will take place November 15, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the Bethlehem Baptist Church in Clarkesville, Ga. All Starretts in counties of Habersham, Franklin, Hart, Rabun, White, Hall, Elbert, Banks and surrounding counties are invited to attend the unveiling.
James Starrett was born in Cecil County, Maryland in 1751 and was the son of Benjamin Starrett and Mary Hunter. After the family moved to North Carolina, James Starrett and his brother Benjamin fought in the American Revolution. After the war, James and his brother Benjamin settled in Pendleton District, South Carolina and about 1803 James obtained land and removed to Franklin County (later Habersham County) and died there in 1848. (James Starrett and Nancy Cooper may have had the following children; Catherine Katie Starrett; Esther Starrett; Polly Starrett; Preston Starrett; Ruth Starrett; Verlina Starrett; Virginia STARRETT; John Jehu Starritt; Mary Sterritt; Benjamin Starrett.)
During the American Revolution, James Starrett enlisted early in 1776 and was appointed 2nd lieutenant in Captain Wilson’s Company, in Col. Saxton’s North Carolina Regiment. After he was taken ill he volunteered again in 1778 and served as a light horseman in Capt. Daniel Gillespie’s Company under the command of Col. John Pasely and John Gillespie and where he was in regiment scouting parties against the British and the Tories. James Starrett was in battles at Raft Swamp; Pyle’s Defeat; Weitzell’s Mill and the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. The British won this battle, but lost so many men that caused the British Commander Lt. General Charles Earl Cornwallis to exclaim, "I never saw such fighting since God made me. The Americans fought like demons". This battle caused the British to re-think their strategy and thus Cornwallis left the South and the British Army was cornered at Yorktown, VA which essentially ended the Revolutionary War October 1781.
James Starrett died in 1849 and his wife Nancy died in 1850, both were approaching a life spanning almost 100 years.

There is a gravesite ceremony scheduled for November 15th, 11:00 am at the Bethlehem Baptist Church Cemetery in Clarkesville, Habersham County, GA…the VA Marker and the marker for Nancy Cooper will be unveiled at that time…SAr and DAR are putting this on….on rain, there will be a ceremony in the fellowship hall (??).  ….or somewhere nearby.
