Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related.

I volunteer at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, and am working on photo-documenting the whole cemetery. At this point, I prefer not to transfer memorials for this cemetery (other than mandatory transfers, of course) because my research is ongoing. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

NOTE: Obituaries are a wonderful source of information, but findagrave has rules about how they may be used. You can always glean facts from them for the bio. If they are out of copyright, or if you hold the copyright, you can transcribe them. Regardless of who has the copyright, you are not supposed to post them as a photograph - regardless of whether you scanned it, took a screen shot, or downloaded it from another website. Please feel free to send me obit text via the edit function, and I will use the info to add to the bio. Obits posted as photos will be removed, and it just ends up wasting your time.

Frances E Crenshaw Berry
Find A Grave Memorial# 106875570 Born 1835 Died 1867, you have her parents are WT Crenshaw and SA Crenshaw. Many people on Ancestry have different parents. Would you direct me to that information you posted?

Also I am searching for a Lola M. Reagin b.about 1892, d. abt 1912 or 1913. She is my great grandmother who died shortly after giving birth to my grandmother Lenora. Lola was alone or with members of my family. She would have died, unwed, in the Altanta area of SW Humphries or Dull Street. Lola was from Lithonia, GA. Being alone and not going home to family, she may be buried as a poor in the larger cemeteries in Atlanta. A Crenshaw is my great grandfather but have no clue which one, but do know the family.

Thank you

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.

RE: Andersons in Oakland
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!!
