RE: Leather
Jerry, I don't know what to say other than the tombstone year and name are incorrect.

His name was Letha Sylvanus Crawford and his year of death is 1964, not 1954. I was at his funeral in 1964 and I have no idea when or who put the tombstone up with the wrong information on it but I don't know what could be done to correct it.

If someone asked you to put in this information, I think I would just leave it alone. I don't know any of these people either.
Thanks for all you do.

Memorial 39879378
Martha Elizabeth Smallwood (my 2nd cousin 3x removed)born 1854 to Martin Carter Smallwood and Martha Elizabeth Spears, was married about 1870 to widower, Thomas Merion Jennings.
You have her listed as being married to John Allen Smallwood, son of Martin Carter Smallwood and Martha Spears, which makes them brother and sister.
Are you sure your entries are correct?

RE: James Anderson Dumas Cemetery
They have changed up Find A Grave some and I am not sure either. I have tried to delete the 3 of the gravestone by LWB and leave yours and the other two of the gravestone but it tells me that the delete has been disabled because I did not create the site. Let me send a help message to Find A Grave and see what they say. Thnx. Will be in touch.

James Anderson Dumas Cemetery
Hi. armymom here. You transferred this gravesite to me a couple of weeks ago and really do appreciate this. The question I have is would you mind deleting the picture of the Dumas Cemetery sign? There are two other people that have completely taken all spaces for pictures on this gravesite and the one with the most LWB (I think) has a disabled contact. I have no place to put any picture of any kind. I have a picture of the Old Anderson Homeplace at Dumas that I would like to share here and I hope to have a pic of James soon. Would this be possible? Thanks. Beth Anderson Mitchel.

RE: David Harlan
Thanks Jerry, that is exactly what I was hoping for.
PS: His Will and probate was around that time so Sarah didn't wait long to marry after his death. I can understand why too. Rightfully it is always a year, or it was back then. But she had about 6 children by David Harlan and William W. Black was a doctor so he probably took her children in and made Sarah his wife as well.
Thanks again!

There is not a map connected to Rogers Springs Cemetery. I would like to visit the cemetery and noticed that you submitted two pictures of the cemetery gate and a church. Would you please tell me how to get to this cemetery? Thank you for your many contributions to Find a Grave. They have been helpful in my search for family.

71089632 David Harlan
Mr. Owen,
I noticed that you made this memorial to David Harlan. Yes, David was born on the date that you have down but he died in about 1853-1854 according to the probate papers in the Court there at Tippah Co. MS. He married Sarah Ann McMullen in 1838 in Tallahatchie Co. MS.
My question for you is this: is there a bottom piece to this stone just laying around there? Or maybe you have a picture of it that you could share with me? That would give me a death date for sure? Probate records do not show a death date unfortunately, drives this researcher nuts because MS is one state that either shares or has no information on their citizens pre 1860 for some reason, or I can't find it anyway...whichever is true I guess. I find the same for MO, KY, TN etc. And I am not sure if it has to do with the Civil War or not, so I can't say for sure which it is... but never the less very sad. It is all apart of history which needs to be told and needs to be repeated through family lines. I am doing this project for a friend that isn't doing well and the southern states are the hardest ones yet that I have tried to tackle bar none. I am hoping that you can help with maybe a photo of the bottom of that headstone, or maybe contact the cemetery for me? Would greatly appreciate this a bunch.
