Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began working on my family tree and started wondering if I could find where my relatives were buried. I stumbled across this website in May (2009) by accident. Not only have I found some relatives here, I've added some and also added some of the pictures/info. for the cemeteries I have been working on here in Florida. I have no relatives here, but I take pictures here to "re-pay" those in other states who take the time to take pictures in their states. It's so exciting to see a picture of a grave of a loved one that you never knew but are still a part of you.
I believe a cemetery is a history of people, an
everlasting record of yesterday and a place of solace for the living. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering!

That's much appreciated Patty. If I can be of any help here in the Jcksonville / S. Georgia area, give me a shout.

John W Smith
Good morning,

You added a memorial for this gentleman, and you took a photo of his marker. It appears there is at least a death date partly visible above the dirt line, but it's not legible.

I wonder, are you far from Taft Memorial Cemetery? Would it be possible for you to go back and scrape away some dirt and get any more information that may be on his marker?

See memorial # 37918955

I am looking for a John W Smith who was born in 1866 in SC, married my cousin Ada L Middleton in 1898, and together they were living in central Florida for the 1900 census with their one son, John W Smith Jr. By 1910 Ada is a widow living with John Jr in Pierce County Ga.

I'm just super curious is this man here at Taft is her husband.

Thanks very much

Tony Middleton

RE: Infant Barber
HAHA! Sorry about that! - MOST people who died in 1952 and earlier (minus infants) and have records from CH are all long gone....

RE: Infant Barber
My pleasure! I love these Carey Hand records - especially for the babies and being able to link them to their parents. :o)

Hi Patty,
Thank you for posting our mother's headstone photo. This is the first time that I have seen it. The stone was not ready for the funeral. We really appreciate it!
