I have found findagrave very useful in my research, and I am trying to give back by adding profiles and photos as I am able. I am glad to transfer memorials if I am not related to them.|

Surname interests include Wilson, Bridgewater, Meador, Pile, Payne, Weatherford, Smalley, Williams, Whitmore, Walker, Shepherd, Moseley and Veal.

|Ellen||Mrs. Ethel Atkinson (# 83661909)|
Thank you for sending Mrs. Atkinson's obituary. I was glad to see the mention of her having passed away peacefully at home. If one has to go (and I don't see any way around it,) then "peacefully, at home" is the best way and the best place for it.
I added the obituary to the memorial, but I re-wrote it so that I didn't have to put it in quotations marks (which look distracting to me.) I'd appreciate your taking a look (whenever you have the chance; no rush) to make sure that I didn't misstate (or misspell) anything. The obit mentions that Mrs. Atkinson will be remembered for her "quick wit." I'm wondering if you, who knew her well, might want to add something(s) to that (her kindness, her warm smile--you get the idea.)
I went back to Ethel's 1920 and 1930 US Census enumerations, when she was at home w/ parents & siblings. I found her sister Mary on Find A Grave and have asked that that memorial be linked to the girls' parents. I think I found her brother Carroll on Find A Grave, but can't be sure it's the same person. I added a mention of her siblings in the biography, with links to the two memorials.
Again, I'm very sorry for your loss. Thank you for working with me to make this memorial a better one, and please let me know if there's anything else that should be added to it.

|Jean Avery Feaster||RE: Averys in Morgan County, Georgia|
Yes, Joe, your entries were very interesting. Thank you so much for the notification! I added a bit more as well. :-)
Joe, I'm very sorry for the loss of Ethel Atkinson. I wanted to explain that the reason I declined your Edit request was because I had manually added the information; I didn't really "decline" it, but that's the option the Edit form gives if changes are made manually. I did some research through Ancestry.com and was able to link Mrs. Atlkinson to her parent.

Joe, Please take a look at the memorial and see if it's alright. Thanks, Ellen

Hi Joe, Thank you for the transfer of Emma and her daughter Annie. It may seem odd to say, but I feel she is finally home.
|Marilyn Posthumus Clark||Peirce vs Pierce|
Hi, Peirce is the 'correct' spelling, I think. I have a transcribed obit for the husband, and it's spelled Peirce in that, too. My genealogy database has Peirce for both husb & wife, but I didn't get any census records or other docs to verify the spelling; they are distant relatives, not in my direct line.
Stone engravers often make errors in spelling and dates, so it's no surprise they went with the more conventional spelling on husband's stone. On Find A Grave we are supposed to put what's on the stone, and note any discrepancies in Notes or the bio area. So the memorial for him is OK as it stands; granted, you'd miss it if you were looking for Peirce...so linking is helpful.
|David E. Fox||RE: Dr. J C C Blackburn|
Thanks Joe. All this is very interesting. Dr Blackburn was a surgeon & ADC to Governor Joseph E. Brown during the Civil War, but afterwards was a newspaper publisher. He & his son Benjamin M. Blackburn (who married Antoinette Fears Martin, daughter of Felix Bryan Martin & Antoinette Fears) were Editors/Publishers of the Madisonian in the late 1870's - early 1880's. They moved to Atlanta, where he died in 1889. Obviously he was buried in Madison. His wife Frances Ann Holmes lived in Atlanta & died in 1912. Her obituary said she was to be buried in Barnesville (Pike County), but I haven't been able to confirm that either. Did the Walkers have a connection to the Madisonian? Or maybe a Fears/Martin connection? Thanks so very much for all you do to help Findagrave.
|David E. Fox||Dr. J C C Blackburn|
Dr Blackburn (# 92953170 ) buried in Madison Old Cemeteries, Madison Georgia. He is my wife's 2g-grandfather. The picture you took is his marker which is in front of a larger monument. Did you take a picture of the monument as well. His wife was Frances HOLMES Blackburn, and we've not been able to determine if she too is buried in Madison. Possibly you have other pictures of the family plot. Grateful, I am...David E. Fox
|Jean Avery Feaster||Averys in Morgan County, Georgia|
I guess I have taken too much cold medicine today. These corrections I have been sending you - the father is Isaac Avery, but his Find A Grave number is 121244253, not the number I put on the individual correction pages. I also said they were born and died in Madison County, but it was Madison, MORGAN, County. So sorry.
|WBTS||PHOTO OF PAINTING CARTER SHEPHERD|
Saturday, December 07, 2013
Could you please send me a photo of the painting of Carter Shepherd? I am talking about the one I see on ancestry.com, as an email attachment, or snail-mail --- more than happy to reimburse you.
Best -- Julian
