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.

|Anne ||RE: Ephraim Downer|
Very glad to help.
And I know what you mean about wanting to sit down and chat for awhile.
Sadly I think the answers would be so much different than the image I have of my ancestors. I have learned that some stories would have been best left in the past.
I have added pictures for those also in his plot.

I am a little confused. Did I send you a letter I have forgotten about, because I am not sure what you are talking about. Help!
|Yankee Magnolia||RE: James Victor Andrew|
Thank you Jim. The photo is wonderful and I'm glad you posted it. I appreciate your reply.
Best regards ... Sharon
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!!!

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.

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.
|Annie Hollis||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.
