Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved with the geneology of my family since 1995. And it is thru the research of my families that i learned that my mom and my wife are 4th cousins! So if you do the math you will know the added relationships i have with my children!!!! Geneology is a challenge, it is a passion to some more than others to know who has come before us. Where they lived, where they walked and worked, went to church, were married and the list goes on and on. In my tree i know the names of all my great great grandparents and from there it gets lean on a few branches of the tree. On the branches i have my forefathers back ten generations and some more, which to me is exciting! Along with Geneology i have another passion for photography, so when i had the opportunity to photograph grave sites in my community for others, i take it as a challenge to seek them out and photograph them to share with others in search of them. I look forward to the day when the names of those buried in cemeteries across the country will be catloged and photographed for all of us to share!

My family names consist of: Truitt, Strong, Granger, Lawler, Collier, Hall, Morgan, Cooper, Godwin, Sims, Posey, Farley, Davis, Frost, Gurganus, Earnest, McLaughlin, Dickey, Hawkins, Kilgore, Smallwood, Coupland, Foote, Bishop, Rakestraw and Buckelew.

John Strong & Mary Strong
Sorry, Wes I meant to leave my previous message for Reba Chunn. Seems like there are several duplicate memorials for Browns and Strongs in two cemeteries, both named New Hope Cemetery.

John Strong & Mary Strong
John and Mary Strong are actually interred in the other New Hope Cemetery which is NW of New Site and just west of Goldville in Tallapoosa County, AL on Valley Grove Rd. It is sometime referred to as New Hope Brown-Strong Cemetery.

The only headstones next to John were three small plaque type stones. James Willcutt 1829-1896, Jane E Willcutt no dates, Virgia - Little Sister - Wilcutt 1915-1916, Jim - Little Jimmy- Willcutt 1909-1910.

RE: Gerry and JJ Davis
I would like to see edits for Gerry's maiden name (and first marriage?) and links to other relatives. I tried to research Gerry and Johnnie myself, but I had a difficult time finding documentation that I could be sure was for the right people. The marriage record had her name as Geraldine, which would be logical. As a relative, can you help (or submit edits yourself)?

RE: Harlin Nelson jr
Hi Wes, I am trying to add the birth date you sent me but someone named T. Painter has me blocked out until around the 22nd of August. I guess he got tired of waiting on me and I apologize but my husband and I have been having health issues and I haven't spent much time on Find A Grave. Wanted to let you know I'm not ignoring you. thanks for your patience. Rose

John Strong and Mary Allen
I just sent you a message saying it was a duplicate Find A Grave, but looking someone added him to the wrong cemetery, but same name New Hope. I looked on the map and very different places. So Sorry about the message. They are my 3rd great grandparents, my mom and I are making a trip down there soon and plan on doing a lot of family research and trips to many cemeteries.

RE: James R Nix
You have the correct J R Nix. His full Name was James Russell and he was called to dinner, and most other occasion by the name of Jim.
His monument at Moodys Chapel Cemetery list DoB as 15 Dec 1880. Other census provide various dates. His WWI Draft reg list 15 Dec 1979, and his listing in the bible of Wife, Fannie V, is 15 Dec 1879. I have a hand writen list of the bith dates of children prepared by his mother; Louiza Penitas (Netie) Conn. She said "Jim Nix was born December the 18, 1879. But, before we assume the mother is always correct, she list the name of his brother William Tyre as "Tire". Genealogy is fun!
I can supply you with copies of all these documents if you are interested in the details. But use my e-mail address.

RE: Joseph Wyatt
You are welcome. One reason I like this site is that it gives us all a chance to give back and share. I've been on the receiving end so many times, it is good to know that I helped someone else. Good luck in your search.
