Bio Photo I would be glad to take photos in the Wilkes County, Georgia area.
If I have a tombstone photo of someone in your family and it's not someone in my family, I'll be glad to transfer it to you - just ask.
My family members are mostly from South Carolina and are Smith, Lewis, Muller and Speights.

Hi Anne, I am familiar with this family's history. One learns much from transcribing an historic cemetery such as St. Stephen's E.C. I was happy to give her to you as you care about your ancestors. I do get somewhat irritated with people who are just "collectors" of other people's work. Keep us the good research. D.

Louis's name
Sorry to fill your wall with messages! I see you took Henry out of the name fields all together. I wanted to suggest that you can either put "C. Henry" in the middle name field, or you could put Henry in the nickname field. I was going to send an edit through the edit system, but I wasn't sure if you would notice it, and I wasn't sure if Henry was actually part of his name or a nickname. Or you can just leave it in the bio portion, if you prefer.

oops - double linked
Since you linked Louis and Mary from Louis's memorial, you didn't need to send me an edit request to link from Mary. But since I accepted the request, there are now double links. But I transferred the memorial, so can't fix it. You need to delete one of the spouse links.

RE: Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
I'll go ahead and transfer, but it's best to ask for transfers by clicking on the edit tab in the upper right hand corner of the memorial, then selecting "suggest any other correction." That way, I automatically get the right memorial, and the right member numbers, and I get a record of the request by email. Also, I noticed that you have Louis's first name as "Louis C." Because of the peculiarities of the search, having extra info in the first name box sometimes gums up the works. (The middle name isn't searchable, so it doesn't matter quite so much.) Just move the C. to the middle name with Henry. It will still look the same, but the search function will work better. (Hope that makes sense.)

RE: Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Also, I have already photographed that whole lot, so I'm sure he doesn't have a stone. If you look at the photo on Mary's memorial, I think the space at left of the second row of markers is where they are buried. I can add the same photo to Louis's memorial once you create it.

RE: Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Yes, you just need to know which cemetery. So you're good to go. Be sure to link him to his wife.

If you would like me to transfer Mary, since she fits within the 4 generations, send me a request using the edit tab on the memorial, and I'll transfer it.

RE: Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Looks like you can go ahead and create a memorial for him in Oakland:
Atlanta Constitution, 17 NOv 1892 page 6

Muller - The friends and acquaintances of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Muller are invited to attend the funeral services of the frmer from the German Lutheran church, corner Forsyth and Garnett streets this morning at 10 o'clock a.m. Interment at Oakland cemetery.

RE: Mary Rebecca Amme Muller
Hi Anne, I'll try to answer your questions - if I leave something out, let me know. First, yes, most of the time, someone purchased a lot or partial lot at Oakland with spaces for multiple graves and families were buried together. The cemetery was pretty much sold out in the 1880s, so chances are good that the lot was purchased before your great-grandfather's death. Unfortunately, early records are very sporadic, depending on who the sexton was, and how careful he was at recording things. Sometime in the early 1900s, an effort was made to collect all the scraps of records (many handwritten and illegible, but also many lost) and organize them. The record transcription shows these folks in that lot:

Memorial# 140205189 - Mary Rebecca Muller, grave 1.
Memorial# 140205419 - Lollie Muller, grave 1a.
(The above 2 have the same death or burial date.)
No listing for grave 2.
Memorial# 73997001 - Matilda Zahn, grave 3.
Memorial# 140204497 - William Muller, grave 4.
Memorial# 140204065 - Louise Muller, grave 5.
Memorial# 140203187 - Mary Masseling Pope, grave 6.
Memorial# 140203528 - Louisa Muller Masseling, grave 7.
No listing for grave 8.
Memorial# 140203528 - Edna Zahn, grave 9.

It's certainly possible that Louis is buried in this lot - most likely in grave 2, next to his wife. But if so, his records have apparently been lost. I searched for all Louis's, L's, and Henry's, and didn't find anything for 1892. (Do you know his exact date of death? I can look for an obituary that might tell us something.)

In Lot 3 of the same block are the Breitenbucher family. Elizabeth was from the Muller family.

I might suggest that you call Oakland and ask to talk to the Sexton, and see if his records show who purchased the lot. Also ask if his records show anyone buried in lot 2. It may not have a name, but might still show that a burial took place.
