Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am semi-retired, again, after having retired once from the Air Force, and have quite a bit more time now to devote to Find-A-Grave network.

I was raised in the Talbot, Marion, Taylor County areas of Georgia.

I plan to busy myself in aiding those requesting photos or other services in my geographic area which will more or less include Newton, Rockdale and Walton counties here in Georgia. These areas are on the eastern side of Atlanta metro.

If I can be of service to anyone, I will do my best to help. Hopefully, in the near future I will have more time to provide.

If I have established a memorial which you wish to be transferred to you to maintain, please do not hesitate to let me know. E-mail me direct if you wish. All photos I have submitted can be considered public domain and reused in the furtherance of ancestral quests.

I have an extensive tree made up of Harts, Hansons, Hays, Cookes, and their lineage into South Carolina. Also a tree made up of Bacles, Parkers, Willis's, Smiths in the Georgia, LA, SC areas.


Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care.
It's much too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died, and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew,
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: Corrections
Dear Gordon, NO THANKS required and I hope that you will never feel bombarded by my constant request for edits, but I promise I request the same of anyone. I love this site and I love the cemeteries themselves for to me they are keys to everything we are. Please browse through my memorials and see if there are memorials you would like to manage no reason necessary. So happy to work with you. Bren

RE: Calidonia Mathews #76860185
thank you so much for the edits to the memorials in the Howard cemetery, I did Junction City, and Geneva the same day and run into your work in them all ! I am so thankful of the indexing that you and others have done as the photo's fall perfectly in place. I try to correct as I go things I see on the chiseled stone, although I know there are mistakes here too as the years pass and people don't remember exact dates and there are many newly placed stone on very old graves almost daily their information may not be based on the best source. lol Again thank you for all you do ! Bren

RE: Jackie Christopher
you are most welcome, I made many corrections to your memorials in this cemetery directly from the monuments placed you each individual. Most are spelling issues, a few dates, and others I left you notes. So appreciate your indexing as the hardest part was done. As always thank you for all you do with find a grave. Bren

Hello. I have another question. Are you aware of any small cemeteries located around 155 and Lyons Rd near Lithonia? My father mentioned something about that cemetery and I want to make sure this was not a place I needed to double check at. Thanks Lisa

There are two memorials for Mary in two different cemeteries. Please see 74636915. One of these is incorrectly placed and needs to be removed or merged into the correct memorial.

Best regards,
Bev M.
