Cedar Ridge Cemetery documentation
Hello Popeye,

I appreciate all you have done pertaining to Cedar Ridge Cemetery there in Macon, GA. I visited a few months ago and was able to (I think) find a family burial plot containing at least five unmarked graves. Based on your work, I think I can put together the puzzle, but I would like to speak with you. I would like to purchase granite markers for my ancestors, but I need to reach a conclusion as to their grave sites.

One is Elizabeth Jane Whitney Self, Find A Grave Memorial# 23545426. It is referenced that her son, Charles Branson Self, purchased this family plot, and I did order and receive a receipt for his purchase from the local library. However, I would like to know how you were able to match his purchase receipt to the specific square plot of land in Cedar Ridge Cemetery. Do you have a map of the cemetery?

Your obituary records have been fantastically helpful. I will send a copy of this message to the email address provided at Again, I would love to speak with you about your experiences with documenting Cedar Ridge Cemetery.

RE: Evergreen cemetery
Thank you for responding. I appreciate it. That's a huge place for sure and walking it is a chore. Actually fulfilled one last week by accident by just adding pictures. At least its kept up unlike some.

I see you have done a lot there and on the Cedar ridge side. I am there at least twice a week keeping up my family plots. I take pics when Im there and add them in once i get about 50. If you have any tips or ideas on this place,I would be glad to hear them. I have tried to get a lot of the requests done, but I dont want to over run Mrs Mitchell.

Thanks for your reply and for maintaining the Macon sites.
On Dudley's Macon site it has a photo of the headstone that matches His wife & daughter's, who are there.and on the Cedar ridge page it says
Plot: Unknown-unmarked"
I think the obit was wrong, or they moved him. I will ask my cousin who used to live there and maybe she can find out.
I really appreciate your efforts. I am in northern Ohio, and I keep trying to find a nice day to go to the cemetery to take pictures. We have so few!

Poindexter Graves
Hi! I just saw where there is a pic of the "Father Poindexter" grave and there are graves for children also. I have the names of those children and can pass them on to you if you would like. Thank you for all you do.

Father Poindexter grave
Hi Popeye!
I don't know how often you check this or if you're anywhere near the Jones Chapel Cemetery in Macon but I was wondering if there is any way you could take a picture of a grave there. It's only listed as "Father Poindexter". I'm sure this is my husband's great great great grandfather and his wife Martha should be buried next to him.
We live in another state and would appreciate your help. If this isn't possible we understand. Thank you- Kristi Downing

I noticed a couple of months ago that someone had taken the gate and removed part of the back fence.
