Bio and Links
I have been working on my family genealogy only since the spring of 2010. I wish I had started decades ago when I would have been able to gain first-hand information from my parents and grandparents. Now I only have bits and pieces of first-hand information to build on. I have discovered more than I ever thought possible. I am working on my New York paternal side: Wightwick, Collins, Thornton, Dolan, Sweeney, O'Mahoney. Also my Mississippi maternal side: McWilliams, Thompson, Shepherd, O'Neal, Barlow, Guynes, Quin, Perryman, Beeson/Beason, Dalrymple and BEYOND.
My husband, Joe, is now interested in finding his ancestors, since I have done a lot of research on his side of the family. That side starts with Richards & Ward in Alabama. It includes: West, Ray, Guy, Hart, Daniels, Parker, Jones, Stuart (or Stewart) and others to be discovered. Joe will now share this site with me, so that we can work together. I have found Houston County in Alabama to be a treasure chest of information. Other researchers there are the most helpful and are probably related, too.

We also enjoy visiting other cemeteries to take pictures and help others with their family search. We live in Douglas County, GA, so if anyone needs assistance nearby, just contact us.

WE HAVE ADDED MEMORIALS THAT ARE NOT RELATED TO US. We visit cemeteries to take volunteer photos and sometimes add other photos and memorials. We do this especially for family names that we are related to. If you find a memorial that is a direct ancestor or a close family member, you may request a transfer to you. We will do this if you make the request through the edit function, suggest a correction, give your contributor #, and tell us how you are related. We will transfer the memorial if we are not also related. We have taken a lot of photos over the last year and a half that we have not yet added. It is time consuming, but we will add more memorials and photos as time permits.

PLEASE NOTE: The McWilliams Family in Clifton Methodist Churchyard in Panthersville, GA. and family members linked to them have NO KNOWN RELATIONSHIP WITH US. Their son, George W. McWilliams IS NOT the George W. McWilliams whom Linda is descended from.

PHOTOS WE TAKE MAY BE USED FOR FAMILY OR GENEALOGY PURPOSES ONLY (NO COMMERCIAL USE.) WE WOULD APPRECIATE JUST SHOWING ON THE PHOTO "COURTESY OF LINDA & JOE RICHARDS." As other photo volunteers know, finding these cemeteries and the graves in them is time-consuming and hard work, as well as the process of adding them to findagrave; therefore, just acknowledge that we provided them. Thank you.

RE: Richards Cemetery, Ithaca, Carroll County
I AM SORRY TO TELL YOU THAT I DON'T KNOW WHO THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY IS. I HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE.
AS TO THE THOMPSON'S I DON'T RECOGNIZE THOSE NAMES IN MY GENEALOGY. MY THOMPSONS WERE IN HENRY CO, AND NEWTON CO GA.
GOOD LUCK ON YOUR QUEST..

RE: Photo for Memorial #110963860
In regards to Marshall Daniel McWilliams buried at Greenwood Memorial, Ft. Worth, Texas, Tarrant Co. I am sorry to say I have deleted the photo of the marker off my camera. I will delete the photo off the Find A Grave site and you may want to contact Jeff Gragg since he set up the page to delete the site. Also please list his name as Marshall Daniel McWilliams so there will be no more confusion. Sorry I didn't catch Daniel McWilliams was the same as M. Daniel McWilliams. I try to make sure duplicates do not happen. I live out of state but next time I go to Texas I will try to photo again the marker and post on the correct site. Thanks

Linda,
What child of Jesse's do you descend from? I am through his son, Pleasant. I have found very few Holbrook cousins. I live in Atlanta. Cheryl

Linda and Joe,
I visited Bethel Baptist Cemetery this morning and found a Stewart obelisk with Penelope Sims Stewart, wife of W.R. Stewart on one side and Infant Daughter on another side but the remaining two sides were blank. There was once a grave fence but all that remains are the gate posts. If Penelope is William's wife I can post the obelisk photo on his memorial. Linda Adams

Thank you so much for taking the photo of my Dad and Stepmothers headstones. I live in Utah so this warms my heart to be able to visit this way.
