Below are links to two PDF files of some photos I found at familyoldphotos.com. I wrote to the contributor who knows quite a bit about the family except where in Walton County they lived. Does anyone know?
I am also looking for information on the Busbee family. My great grandfather is George Washington Busbee, he married Ethel Lee Lassiter in 1902. His father is Henry Daniel Busbee mother is Mary Ann Andrews. He was born Jan. 7th 1867 and died Jan. 26th 1928. I have been unable to locate where he is buried but have found that some says he's in Clear Springs Cemetery with his wife Ethel and 2 of his 4 children, Fandora Busbee Royals and Malcolm B. Busbee. I know that some Busbee's lived in Childrens Home Community and I'm also looking to see if any Busbee's are buried in that cemetery. Does anyone have a listing for whom is buried there or history for that community?
The flower icon following the name means someone has left a note for or about that person. These are often short memorials, but they will occasionally have additional information. The gravestone icon with "RIP" in it means there is at least one photograph of the person's gravestone.
I have prepared a comparison (see link below) of the information on Findagrave versus a cemetery inventory dated 1991 that is on file with the Walton County Genealogy Society at the Heritage Museum. Both lists contain errors, so be sure to check the photographs when available. The links on the comparison document should work so you'll be able to check the photographs while viewing the document.
Sorry, there are no Busbees listed, but they could be in the unmarked graves. I will do the same sort of comparison to Clear Springs Cemetery soon if there is an older inventory of it.
Thank you very much! I've been searching for a listing for months now. I am on Find A Grave but I figured that maybe everyone wasn't listed on there yet so, I figured it was worth a shot to see if George Busbee was there. I would greatly appreciate a comparison list for Clear Springs if possible. In Clear Springs if looking at family plot there's Fandora Royals, Empty space, Ethel Busbee and Malcolm Busbee. I'm trying to see if Ethel's husband George Busbee is in that Empty space? It's a family plot for 4 with 1 in middle empty, seems a little odd. I have a photo of it that my Aunt who was there sent me. Thank you so much for all of your help. Here is the memorial I created for Ethel with that picture of the graves. www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSmid=47387443&GRid=63568038&
