Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a niece of Lloyd "Pete" Herbert Hughes, who was a Medal of Honor Recipient. Researching his life has been an honor and a privilege. Here are his crew members of the "Ole Kickapoo."

I adopted the Bodan Cemetery in Pollok, Angelina County, Texas, USA because of the many relatives of mine who are buried there. About 40% of those buried there are related to me.

You have my permission to use the grave marker photographs I have uploaded in any genealogy project. They are not one-of-a-kind photographs. You certainly do not, however, have my permission to use my photographs of family members in some money making scheme. Don't laugh, it has already been tried - and stopped.

The transcription of the grave marker on any memorial is important. Please add them. If you have a problem with adding transcriptions of the grave marker, please take it up with Find A Grave. They have a field for it, they, and I, ask that you fill it.

I registered on Find A Grave on 9 Jul 2001 when there were "only" 2.5 million memorials. For some reason, I didn't create my first memorial until 29 Jul 2001.

RE: Elbert County Rev. Memorial
Thanks for adding the Bonds. I have some other names that I will send to you later.

I have some pictures from the Memorial Park from a trip several years ago. I was glad to find a page that had all of the names listed--great idea!

I did share a link to your page on two genealogy facebook pages--one for Thomas Maxwell and for the Higginbotham Family.

Thank you again!

Anna Belle Deason
You are very welcome for the confirmation that Anna is buried at Zion Hill. I did not contact the other person about the duplicate. I had hoped that they would see the information and make the correction. I will try to keep an eye on it and hope that it can be corrected at some point. If not, I will try to remember to send them the correct information.

THanks for posting the Revolutionary War Memorial for Elbert County, Georgia.

I have the findagrave links for some of the other soldiers if you would be interested in adding them to the list.

THanks again!

Just curious. I note you created a lot of memorials for folks at Cook-Walden Memorial Hill Cemetery, many don't have photos (which I am working at solving). I was wondering what your source was for the memorials? Regards, Connie

I also just checked the Zion Hill transcription page on Gloria Mayfield's Cemeteries of Texas website and saw that Anna Belle was listed there. I do not know how to make a clickable link, but will copy and paste the web address for you.

I checked my records from where I photographed Zion Hill, and confirmed that Anna Belle Deason (1877-1879) does have a gravestone there.

Hawthorn's at Belleville, Alabama
Thank you for notifying that there are duplicates for Joshua Hawthorn and Sarah Hawthorn in Bellville, AL. The ones at "Belleville United Methodist Church Cemetery" are wrong. I believe the manager of those pages [M'Lady] has been contacted a while back with no response. I have been to the other cemetery personally and took photos. They were Baptists. I will have to try one more time with M'Lady to take them down. If no reply then I will contact Find A Grave.

Thanks for the message. This info was taken from a newspaper article about his death in The Washington Post. I will add it later today when I have time. It seems he was more of a distant cousin than a descendant?

Wanted to let you know i fulfilled your request for another photo for Caroline. I enhanced the photo a bit so the letters show up a bit better.

In case you still have difficulty reading it, the middle initial is "E".
