This is the Macland Cemetery, west of Marietta, in Cobb County, near the Paulding County line.
The above looks like a holy Mecca or maybe a royal shrine but it is the family plot of the McEachern family. The McEachern family was the wealthy elite family of the area. I think they still are. A high school there is named after them, which they donated money to, which looks more like a ivy league college than a high school.
I took photographs here because of the Pettys buried here. These are very distant relatives, way up the line, these Pettys and I share a progenitor. Our latest common ancestor was William Petty (c1708-1770) and his wife Elizabeth Randsall, they lived in Orange County, Virginia. See the marker of William A(lexander) Petty (1847-1898)? He and I are 4th cousins, 3 times removed. I could probably pick anybody in the phone book and be more closely related.
Robert Guffin – Guffin is a family name on Anna’s side of the family. I do not know Robert’s relation, but if I ever come across it, I’ll have a picture of his grave.
And the same about the Hunters here. I know they are not generated from my grandfather through my great great grandfather, but before that the information is broken.
