RE: Susanna Landis
Good Morning L. Ferree,
Susanna Brubaker Landis was the daughter of Abraham (Herr) Brubaker and Elizabeth (Brubaker) Brubaker. Not only were Susanna's paternal and maternal parents Brubakers, but her maternal grandparents were both Brubakers, as well. Her maternal gr-grandparents were both Brubakers, as well. I am attempting to add the person's mother's maiden name as a middle name, so as to help genealogists connect family lines more easily. Thank you for checking.

Yes, we transferred it as he is a CSA veteran. We do not retain the memorials to those men, but transfer them to member of the UDC.

Thank you very much for the note. I did not realize the memorial was marked like that. I evidently made a mistake at the time it was posted. Itís been corrected. Thanks again!!

The information on Mr Graves comes from "Images of America: Historic Oakland Cemetery" by Tevi Taliaferro and "The Historic Oakland Cemetery of Atlanta: Speaking Stones" by Cathy Kaemmerlen.
Those were two of the sources I used.

Thanks... It was probably the newspaper but I will go back and find it. Either that, or the Trinity I spend a pretty insane amount of time on that place doing one thing or another !

Thanks for calling my attention to the duplicate for James Kilgore at Oakland. I have deleted it.

Agneta Brooks
Hi! I'm fairly certain this is my husband's great aunt Agneta Viola Brooks. The headstone appears to have a middle initial V rather than B. If you agree, would you be able to change it on the memorial? thank you ! Leslie

Caroline Ferree
My information on her maiden name is from her death certificate-Father George Stevenson, Mother-Susan Tantlinger Husband-Charles Ferree. A listing in Ancestry has her married to Benjamin Collins 1853-1891, that would be before she married Charles Ferree

John Holbrook
Hello Ms. Ferree: I am a descendant of John and Mary Holbrook. My mother's family is from Atlanta, Georgia. She is 91 years old and I am trying to find out family tree information for her. The Holbrook's were the grandmother and grandfather of C.A. Duuke on my grandmother's side. Her name was Minnie Duke. Many of our family members are buried in Oakland and Westview Cemetaries. I see where Mary and John Holbrook had 14 children. Can you give me any of their names or dates of birth? I would appreciate any help you can provide. All of my mother's side of the family have expired, and we have no other way of locating relatives. Thanks so much for your assistance!

You have that Ida P. Kaphan, who is buried in the Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, was the wife of Marcus Kaplan. That is not true. She was the wife of Manheim Kaphan, b. abt 1845 in Miloslaw, Posen, Prussia, and d. in 1919 in Bedford, VA. His grave can be found at Find-A-Grave.

RE: D Wadsworth
There is a Gate City Hospital book of records I found on line. A lady wrote all the deaths starting with 2/25/1862 and they are in cronological order. I would go by Oakland records for the row and grave #. This is what she has - 3/8/1862 - D. Wadsworth, 6th Miss. Regiment Co. - Unknown - Row 6, # 4. At the top on page 1, it has Confederate Soldiers buried at Oakland Cemetery. - Here is the name of it - Oakland Cemetery Book of Confederate Burials, February 1862 - July 5, 1864.
I wondered how many soldiers actually died at the hospital and stumbled on this record of them.
