Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in Genealogy research far longer than I would like to admit in this bio. Remembering many a happy times spent with my mother in distant libraries and trampling thru overgrown cemeteries, way before the movie "Roots" and the Internet. What fun we had and still have when we can yell outů"I'VE FOUND ONE"
My trees are posted under the names of "The Batchelor Pad" and "The Dennis Menace". There is no better way to connect with distant relatives and make new friends and help others than researching "Our" family lines. It's the pictures and stories I love the most, even if it is just a headstone picture, how they got there is their story.

The areas my research has lead me are: Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Canada, England and Prussia (Germany & Poland).

Please feel free to email me.
Thank you Find-A-Grave for this wonderful venue to our past.

Vivian Viola Padgett
There is a request for a grave photo for Vivian, who is listed in Michigan Memorial, but when I called to get the grave location, they said they had purchase information, but no one had been buried there. I am hoping, since this appears to be your family, that you know or can find out if indeed she was buried at Michigan Memorial, and where. Can you help? Thank you!

138308971 Callie Edwards
Hi, My name is Roxanne Pitts Jordan. I'm a local volunteer here in Walton Co., Georgia and also a researcher of my own family. I ran across William Moses Edwards's Memorial while entering in some people who hadn't been recorded was wondering if you are related to the Pitts and Edwards from Effingham, Georgia or maybe the ones from Alabama, Illinois, Mississippi, Flordia, Macon Co., Georgia? If related would like to know more on your line and willing to share mine... Even if not I do have William's baby sister Callie Edwards Memorial and will be happy to transfer.
Thanks and goodluck with your research,
Roxie aka Tazgirl

RE: Martins 47939
Good Morning Lu.
Sorry, I donated all of my cemetery books to charity. But, I did not have a Hancock County book and did have a Greene County book. So, If I put them on then most likely they were in Greene County as I have not been to Hancock County.
Sorry for not giving you a more professional answer. Also, I just checked and I did not put that cemetery on, I was helping someone searching 'Martin'.
Best regards, Bud
PS. The books are being categorized now and most likely will go on eBay or Half ebay sometime. I still have my 50+ WV books. BB

Murphy and Cox
Went back and spoke with Odys Garcia at Southern Memorial and this is what information she gave me. Mr.Murphy does own a crypt in the main mausoleum. Unit 2 Tier 2 Crypt 14.It is a tandem. Number 14A/14B. She says there is a Ruth Murphy in there by herself and the other space is reserved for someone else that will eventually go inside with her. She didnot know who but she was sure the person was Ruth Murphy not Cox.

ps. I know who misinformed you because she did the same thing to me twice.

Whenever you call ask for Odys Garcia (SMC)
