A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS WHO SO POLITELY PUT UP WITH ALL MY ADDITIONAL INFO REQUESTS!|
I have been actively photographing and documenting the older sections of historic Greenwood Cemetery, Orlando, FL. I am currently going through all their records to make sure we get everyone on findagrave.
I'll gladly transfer management of memorials upon request, no matter what your relation (unless they are my relatives - but I will transfer a relative to a direct descendant if I am not one). I create every memorial with the hope that their family will find them. Every transfer request I receive makes me know its worth it.
Please let me know if you find any errors or I've duplicated a memorial, I'll fix it! It's so important to have dates correct and names properly spelled - but we all make mistakes, and sometimes the markers are very difficult to read.
Feel free to use my photos (with credit to me - Merf works) for your personal genealogical project. My photos are of public places, and of no artistic (I can guarantee that!) merit. I don't believe I "own" a simple snapshot of someone else's grave marker. I volunteer here to SHARE and to make sure memorials are as accurate as possible. HOWEVER, photos of people - such as my relatives that I have posted...I do require permission prior to use or visible credit to me and that they came from findagrave.
My mother and I are researching our family who settled in Lee, Phillips and Monroe County, Arkansas.
In particular, we are desperately searching for parents and siblings of Thomas Trotter Bonner, who settled in Spring Creek, AR. He married Elizabeth Shackelford Bonner in 1834 in Marengo Co., AL.
Assisting my mom and the Annie H. Darracott UDC Chapter out of Lakeland, Polk Co, FL in the documentation of Confederate Veterans.
Completing FAG entries for Greenwood Cemetery using various sources including cemetery records and undertaker records. I'm only concentrating on the lettered, older sections.
Would REALLY appreciate ANY information on Daniel M Bonner (b. 1789), son of Col. Thomas Bonner and Margaret Jones. We think he's the father of our "brick wall" person based on DNA testing.
Family surnames: Allen, Allred, Bonner, Coble, Estes, Gaines, Garrison, Gearhart, Gower, Hale, Harris, Higginbotham, McGee, Mauney/Mooney, Ottertail, Raymer, Redditt, Waldron, Walker, Whitfield

Thank you, Merf, for all the work that you do for our families. Would you be so kind as to transfer to me my Aunt's memorial? I am trying to tie the family together on findagrave. Thank you so much for considering this request. Of course, if you are a family relative, I would love to communication with you. God bless you and your family for all the family history work you do. Best Regards, TJ Ashlock

Thank you so much for the added information. Do you happen to know anything about Annie? I have always wondered about these two memorials. They are so different than any others in the cemetery.

|Patty Foster||RE: Infant Barber|
I was born in 1952 and my family is alive and still kicking. Thanks for making me feel old :)
|Patty Foster||RE: Infant Barber|
That's not necessarily true. Family can go to court and ask that private info. not be released. My brother filed paperwork to keep my parents info. private & is assured by HIPAA.
