My wife and I have been doing genealogy work for many years and with the help of many we have made great strides in research. If you are visiting our site and see a link to any family grave listed in our virtual cemeteries, please email. Others listed as memorials are not our personal family lines, this information was gathered from other sources.

DELETIONS: Creation of memorials are not meant to offend, but are only placed for information and research purposes. IF you have a family member listed and do not want that memorial public, or picture, please notify and we will be happy to delete.

CORRECTIONS: Please use the "edit" tab to make corrections or provide links. We would be happy to add other biographical information. Please be professional in any other request.

TRANSFERS: Will be considered according to Find-A-Grave guidelines. Your request should be made from the page you wish to have transferred using the Suggest A Correction (SAC) form, please include your FAG ID# as well as the individual link FAG ID#.

CONTRIBUTE: Be involved, contribute (don't duplicate memorials) to the community by searching out your area, libraries, etc.. for graves that have not been located. Don't just use Find A Grave, asking for transfers, and not contributing in some manner. If this is your only intention FAG provides a way for you to collect memorials, by way of creating a "Virtual Cemetery". This will allow you to bring together information and family names.

You can see videos of certain cemeteries and family sites I have created at:
www.youtube.com/user/familytree60

If you use information from any grave site or cemetery please site your source when available. Also, become a volunteer and work on a cemetery near you. Your work will benefit so many others.

Thank you for your help. With all of us working together we can do so much more with our family histories.

Have a blessed day.
Yours in research, SOF <><

This will was found among the Maryland wills that were registered in the Prerogative Court in Annapolis. No county was listed. Assume it was Frederick. His surname is spelled Coughran in the will, but he signs Cochran.

Will or William Coughran (Cochran)
I accidentally came across the will of your William Coughran/Cochran of York Co., PA among the wills of the Maryland Prerogative Court. It's dated 20 Sept 1771, probated 15 Jan 1772. If you haven't seen it I can send you what I transcribed. Or you can view the original (PDF) at the Maryland State Archives website:
PREROGATIVE COURT
(Wills)
1635-1777
S538
Bk WD 3, p. 619

(Link to index: http://guide.mdsa.net/pages/series.aspx?ID=S538)

The will lists his wife Sarah and children Andrew, James, William, John, Margaret, Sarah.

Helms Cemetery
Are there any graves in this cemetery that have readable markers? I have been looking for a Helms, my gg grandfather that died in 1890 and have had no luck so leaving no stone unturned.

Thank you,
Beth Helms Swain

RE: Bobby Rivers
I had the opportunity to visit the Bobby Rivers cemetery again over Thanksgiving. I went specifically to see if I had missed this grave stone on my initial visit. This headstone doesn't exist at the site. The only other possible location would be at the New Smyrna Methodist
Church in Hancock County GA. While there are some field stones there next to William Jackson, Philip's grandson, there are no headstone markers so I think the final resting place for Philip will have to remain a mystery for now. If you do find out any additional information, please let me know, and I'll do the same.

RE: Bobby Rivers
I pulled it from a member tree in Ancestry. I've reached out to them for information as I would like to know where they found it as well. If they reply, I will forward to you. Thanks

RE: Bobby Rivers
I did and was wondering the same thing. I expected to find it when I went to the Bobby Rivers site but I couldn't find it. If you do determine it's location, and are able to verify that it is the correct one, please let me know so I can update my documents in Ancestry, etc.

RE: Bobby Rivers
Unfortunately no. More than likely though, they are either buried there or in the cemetery at the New Smyrna Methodist church in Hancock County Ga. as there is room next to William T Jackson for both of them and at least one field stone. I hope this helps you. Thanks for adding the information to Find A Grave. As stated, I have additional photos to post when I get time. May God bless you both.

RE: Bobby Rivers
I've included a link to the cemetery from google maps which should help you.
The cemetery is easy to find and is located just off Barnesville Rd, Griffin, GA. Its about a mile south of the intersection of Barnesville rd and
Rehoboth Church rd on Barnesville rd and will be on your right side. If you get to Sanders rd you've gone too far.
There are only a few remaining headstones there now but the site is kept in excellent condition. If you have any specific questions, please let me know and I will try to answer them for you. I also have additional photos if you can provide an email address where I can send them.
