Bio and Links
I have had several dna tests. Some from Family Tree Maker DNA, another test with Ancestry dna. The latest test (the Big Y, at FTDNA)put my ancestral homes proceeding backwards as; Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, England, Scotland, Wales, and 2300 years ago, Northern Germany.
I am an R1b1a2a1a2e, R-P312+, DF-88+, DF19+. My Ysearch id is BSTUQ, Family Tree DNA # 222038.

I am finding that my male ancestors were a fighting bunch. My direct line has participated in every war including the revolution. I have applied for membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans, thanks to my 2nd great grandfather, who served with the 65th Georgia Volunteer Army of Tennessee. My 4th great grandfather served in the Revolutionary War. My father was in Korea, Vietnam, and I was in the cold war and Desert Shield/Storm. I am a retired US Navy Electronics Technician Chief Petty Officer, I was stationed in Guam on the USS Proteus AS-19, I was a Cryptographic Electronics Instructor at Combat Systems Technical Schools Command at Mare Island, Vallejo CA, I wintered over in McMurdo, Antarctica 86-87, and was stationed onboard the USS Peleliu LHA-5 during Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

RE: Susan Gunn Driver

This is not the first time this has happened with some of my memorials. I take the time and effort to go to cemeteries and record tombstones and make photographs. Then someone makes a memorial, having no idea where that person is buried, and later moves it to the cemetery after locating an actual accurate memorial. With Susan Driver's, the other memorial doesn't even have her married name. I choose not to delete mine.

Susan Gunn Driver

I do not understand your message to me. There is no other memorial for Susan G. Driver that I am aware of. I created hers in LaFayette Cemetery in 2011.

RE: Gunn Family Cemetery
I know Wrens pretty well. 88 is the Matthews-Stellaville Rd. By looking at Google Maps I see where 22 (Noah Station Rd), comes off 88 and eventually loops back to 88. Side Track Rd (#19) is a right off 22. Looking past 19, the only "passageways" I see are roads going back into agricultural fields on private property.

Having two old knee replacements, if I can't drive back there I won't be walking. :) I need better info so that perhaps I can see if the owners of the property will allow me access as I don't trespass to take pics.

Gunn Family Cemetery
I was wondering if you had any directions to the Gunn Family cemetery. I see you have six photo requests there and I can take those if you know where it is. I'm about 20 miles from there so no one around here has ever heard of it.

RE: Daniel Green Gunn Sr
Hi Bill,
Thanks for getting in touch. According to my paternal grandfather, Charles Garrett Bradley (1870-1949), his parents were Joseph (1836-1876) and Susan Ann Gunn Bradley (1840-1898). Susan was the d/o of General Green (1806-1859) and Susan B. Fuller Gunn (1808-1892). Daniel Green Gunn (I have him with the middle name of Franklin) was her grandfather.

My grandfather seems to have been born before Joseph and Susan's marriage and was brought up by his paternal grandmother and widowed aunt. I have been taken to task by a Gunn descendant on Ancestry who questioned my grandfather's parentage; but, as I told her, he believed that Joseph and Susan A. Gunn Bradley were his parents, and until one of us female family genealogists can get a direct line male Bradley cousin to take a DNA test, we have no reason to doubt him. Are you by any chance on Ancestry, 23andMe, FTDNA or Gedmatch? I would be very interested in seeing if we're a match - as you said, if we share descent from Daniel Green Gunn, we should be close cousins.

All the best,

RE: Yoakum/Yocum/Yocom
Bill, the Yocum spelling you refer to below is for my great grandparents, I have newspaper clipping and a death certificate showing the spelling as Yocum rather than the yocam on the stone as you suggested.

Thanks, Steve

I am researching the Yocoms as they are related to me. I see that you denied my edit for the Yocam memorials. Do you have any paperwork that discusses these Yocum's/Yocam's?
I'm sure it's just a typo on the stone, but I have edited over 150 Yocum's that were in reality Yocoms, even the stone said Yocom, so I want to be sure of the spellings.
Any info you have that could shed light on this would be great.
Thanks for all you do for Find a Grave.
