I am a retired librarian with an interest in family history, researching Cole, Renfro, Johnson (in Georgia), Flowers, and Dunlap family lines. I enjoy working with my church, working with photos (and taking them!), my family, gardening, and pets. Love to read!
RE: Howard Cole at Friendship If he is your father, just send a note to the other Find A Grave member asking them to transfer their memorial to you and then you can update the links and data with what you have. Then, after you're finished you can delete your memorial.
I've had that happen to me and most Find A Grave folks are friendly enough to transfer them to you. Just make sure you take all of your links and data and add it to the transferred memorial . . .presuming they transfer it to you.
RE: Ervin C. Osborn You are welcome. I'm glad you requested the edit. I hesitate to do that when I notice discrepancies, because sometimes the tombstone is incorrect. I'm glad the records will now be consistent and correct.
Wiley's date of birth and middle name I did do some research on Ancestry to find his wife's name and there was a Wiley J Woodson that married a Valora Roberts - both resided in Alexander, NC. Coincidence or not... no way to prove it at this time. Either way, there is no record of her being buried at Flint. Also, conflicting info re: his DOB and middle name... some documents state DOB as 7/1/1889, others state 7/2/1900... and some state middle name as James, some Jones... Wiley signed his WWI draft card "James" and his WWII draft card "Jones"... go figure.... :)
Wiley Woodson Carol, I was unable to locate a grave for a wife for Wiley. There was no grave near his marker for a female Woodson other than his mother and sister-in-law. There are many, many grave sites in this cemetery that have no inscriptions.. I checked all the Woodson's and found non that I would have assumed or guessed was his wife. Sorry. /marti
RE: Other Johnson Transfers Aha, good question. The answer is no but... if you know for a fact that the individual is buried in a specific cemetery, you can create a memorial for that person. Once the memorial has been created (and owned by you), just submit the photo request. Once one responds to the request, they will upload the photo to your memorial.
The cemetery appears to be church owned but you could probably contact the church and verify their burial before you create the memorial to be on the safe side. In any case, if there is a problem with the photo request(s), the person claiming the request will post comments to the request outlining the problem.
RE: Other Johnson Transfers Carol, I live about 25 miles from the cemetery and will try to make it back there but the earliest I can do it is next week. If you prefer, you can submit a photo request and possibly get the photos quicker. This area has a great number of volunteers that are very good at responding to requests in a timely manner. Either way is okay with me. As I recall, it was an enjoyable ride and the cemetery appeared to be laid out well. Just let me know.
