Bio and Links
Bio Photo My virtual cemeteries list my ancestral lines, the numbers indicate which generation back from me. With only a few exceptions in each line, over 80% of my relatives are tied to Georgia since the late 1700s. Although I was born in Georgia, I've lived there less than 5 years total over my lifetime. Dad was in the Army, I was in the Navy, and I continued wandering after that; so far - 46 states & 20 countries.

I'd love to hear from anyone researching the same lines. We may be "distant" cousins!

I use transcriptions and spreadsheets to enter some memorials. If you find an error, have more info to add, or would like a transfer please contact me via the "Edit" tab. I am happy to transfer any memorial I'm not related to or even those I am related to if they are closer to you than to me.
I've been into photography ever since taking pictures for my high school year book. In addition to posting plenty of pictures related to my family, I'll try to fill as many photo requests as I can.

PHOTO COPYRIGHT I hereby grant permission for download of my pictures for PERSONAL USE only (i.e if you find a picture I posted that is related to your family tree, you can download it and use it). This includes uploading it to YOUR tree on,, or similar web site. If you could leave me a message saying that you downloaded it, I'd appreciate just knowing someone found one useful.

Any commercial use will still require specific, individual permission from me (i.e. publishing it on a web page other than in YOUR family tree, publishing it in a book, or anywhere else people outside of your family will use it or pay for it).

John W. Clark
I've just discovered that there are two listings for my Uncle John W. Clark b. 25 APR 1921 d. 11 JAN 1994. Find-a-grave number 59070015. Apparently he has a military stone and it is listed as a separate person. I was also trying to edit his memorial to include Cassie Coleman Clark as his wife. Thanks for your help.

Angie Cooler Edenfield
Hi, Wally. I saw your question about Angie Cooler's middle name being Althea. She is my aunt. Angie's daughter (my first cousin) and her great-granddaughter both have Angie's middle name as Althea. I e-mailed my cousin and asked her if Angie's name was Althea and she said it was. She should know. It's her mother. Angie is my aunt. Her husband David Edenfield (1926-1994) and my mother Willie Lee (Edenfield) Tully (1924-2011) are siblings. They have 3 surviving sisters.

RE: Oops, Samuel and Etholene Campbell
I looked at Samuel & Etholene Campbells memorials and they were not linked at all. Not sure what you are seeing. I did go in and link them. Would you please take a look and let me know if it looks ok? Also if you are related and would like a transfer I will be happy to do so.

RE: Photo for Angie Cooler Edenfield (Memorial# 94932784)
Hi, Wally - I have fixed the photo. I used an iPad to take the photos and upload, I don't know why some appeared upside down - viewing them on the iPad, they all appeared correct. Judy

I think I'm related to his parents by whom I assume was his granddaughter -- Margaret "Peggy" (Bell) Buffington, daughter of Eleanor (McElhannon) Bell -- but lack proof that Eleanor was her mother. Thanks for adding the parent link. ~~Carol
