Askew Family

Ok, so today's Buddventure comes courtesy of Find a Grave. For anyone who has not checked out this website, you really should because it is amazing what you can do on it. Anyway, one of the things you can do is become a Photo Volunteer, so if someone is tracing their roots and finds out about family graves that they cannot visit themselves, they contact someone local to visit it and take a photo. Pretty neat, huh? So my first trip as a Photo Volunteer has brought me back to Folkston, to the Pineview Cemetery, pictured above. Since I expected this to be a quick easy trip, I brought the kid along with me to give mom a few hours off. Yeah, cemetery, not as small as I expected. Not even close. So I hope the photo requester does not mind, but I thought since the photos are taken I may as well share them on here so others who are interested can find them.
So here is the first Askew family I came across, right in the front of the cemetery. These graves are:
James Willis Askew
Apr 16, 1906
Sep 25 1989
Doris Alwyn Askew
Apr 22, 1908
June 6, 1998

Another Askew next to them, maybe their daughter since she died young:
Lucia Merle Askew
July 13, 1923
Sept 22, 1924

Here is the next Askew plot I came across, this one almost all the way in the back.
