My great-great grandfather is George Washington Street. I know there were thousands of baby boys named 'George Washington' something in the early 1800's. My great-great grand father was born in February 1840 in Wayne, Georgia. In my research, I have found members of the family still living in Wayne.
G.W. came to Gainesville, Hall County, Georgia as a young man where he met and married Mary Louisa Bagwell. G. W. and Mary had 8 children: Sydney C., Walker J., Hiram H., John, Mellis, Laura, Charles David, and Minor W. I have located the graves of several of these people, but not all.
My biggest quest is to find the grave of G. W. and Mary Louisa. I know from a 1907 Gainesville newspaper that G. W. died on January 23, 1907 from an abscess. His funeral was at Hopewell Church.
Today, there is no Hopewell Church. I have checked at Hopewell Methodist and Hopewell Baptist to see if they are buried in one of the cemeteries. As of today, I have had no luck finding G. W. and Mary's final resting place.
If anyone can help me, I would be greatly indebted.

This is the email list of the Obituary Daily Times. It is a moderated email list. If you are searching for descendants of a particular family group, this is the exchange group you want. It's easy (and quite addictive!) to do an index of your local paper, and you then have access to newspaper obituaries from across the world. If you become a contributor, you can request a copy of the listed obituary. It's like receiving numerous newspapers a day to shuffle through the obituaries. You can also become a subscriber without contributing, but you don't get the frills. If you want to become a contributor, please visit our website page about being a volunteer: http://sites.rootsweb.com/~obituary/volunteer.html.
