Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy since a friend introduced me to family research in the 1990's. In 2010, after attending a Veteran's Day observance, I found an error in their handout, so I decided to write as much a genealogy as possible on the cemetery in my town of Statham, Georgia. I've photographed every headstone in the cemetery and have compiled a brief family history on all but a few of the over 370 names. My goal is to provide at least a 4 generation genealogy on each person interred there.

I can provide e-mailed copies of my photo and the history that I've compiled, and I'm willing to visit local cemeteries with perhaps the exceptions of Barrow Memorial Gardens and Evergreen Memorial Park - they are just too large for my arthritic and flat feet.

I have transferred over a memorial into your care because you had created another from the same family. I hope you don't mind. I like to care for family only.

Btw, thank you for all your work!!!

Best regards,

James Victor Andrew
Hello Jim. I'm helping my brother-in-law with his family research. You have added a wonderful photograph of his gg-grandfather, James Victor Andrew. I wonder if you can tell me where you got the photograph? My brother-in-law would very much like to get a copy. Do you happen to have other Andrew family photographs? Thanks so much for the work you have done in photographing the cemetery. We have found lots of your photos on the memorials we are looking for.

RE: Rhue Southard Edwards
Thanks so much for catching my error. It does look like a "7" now that you mention it. I went ahead and transferred Rhue to you. I am not kin to this family. If you ever want any others, just let me know.

My Great Grandmother
I believe you have found my Great Grandmother and I could kiss you. Mary M. Hollis, wife of R.H. Hollis - we have looked for her for years. Do you know what the inscription below her dates says? I'm so excited to know where she is buried and have photos of her tombstone.
Thank you so very much.

Also, you state that you may have some history on some of the folks. Anything on her?

With gratitude and a few tears.

RE: Alice Kinney Patrick
Jim, I will check with the Pentecost Church to see if they have a record of her burial there. I did know they were in NC on the 1930 Census. Some of Granny's family were still up there back in the 1950's because I remember them coming down to see us here in Asheboro, NC. Along about 1928 might have been the time some of the family fixed up an old school bus and a bunch of them came up from GA to NC with some of them getting off in China Grove, and my Dad and grandparents got off in Winston-Salem and the others went on up about Forest City, NC (per my Dad). My family was in Winston-Salem Census in 1930. I will keep searching and also maybe someone else will have m
more info and post it. Thank you so much for checking on this for me.

RE: The Jones Family
I do have a copy of the write-up about the William Pentecost Marker that has a photograph of the Marker and of the William Pentecost Tombstone as I was able to save it to my Ancestry Family Tree - also a photo of the Pentecost Methodist Church and it is the one where my Jones family is buried and I have an earlier photo of the church (in black and white) made around 1966. We spent the night with Miss Eudean Jones (daughter of Robert Hilliard (Buddy) Jones (my grandfather's older brother) and attended church the next morning at Pentecost. We walked around to the back and my husband made a photo of my little sister's grave (Lynda Lou Jones). There is a tombstone beside her that says M. J. Jones (10/25/1878 TO MAR 1, 1901) - don't know who that is but sure they are connected to my family - might be my grandfather's brother Joseph who I think might have died young. On 1900 Census, Chandler, Jackson, GA, a Joseph was living with William Zeno Jones and his family listed as a laborer and his father was already remarried by then. Thank you for "listening"
