To whom it may concern,
Thank you for your photo and recognition of my Great Uncle Festus . He was my Grandmothers favorite Brother. I was told as were many others in my family about how he had passed away at such a young age.
I would like to share this short but helpful story in the hopes it will be shared with current and future children.
Festus had a pet mule he loved very much and was only allowed to play or ride him with supervision. One day he sneaked into the barn with only a farmhand knowing, To take his mule out into the field to play. The mule became spooked at something in the field and kicked Festus. He was hurt but convinced the farm hand not to tell his parents for fear of being in trouble.
Festus returned home and went to bed early without eating supper. My Great Grandparents assumed he was ill but not seriously. The next morning they awoke to find Festus had died from his injuries(the mule kick caused internal bleeding). So very upset my Grandparents found out what had happened by the Farm Hand.
The Moral is do not hide things from your parents.

|Mrs. Bee||RE: Cemeteries you have photographed|
First, thank you for allowing me to use the photos.
The specific cemetery -- for right now -- is Memory Hills Garden in Tuscaloosa. The person is Velma (nee Lee) Griffin and her husband and children (if they are buried there).
Second, my primary research lines are Dean (from which Velma descends), Carpenter, Hudson, Hampton, Patterson, Short, Burney, Culpepper, and all lines associated with them.
I live in the Anniston, Calhoun Co., Alabama, area. If I can ever be of help to you, please let me know.

|George Alexander||RE: Melissa Sexton Johnson|
Jacque: Got the Death Date: 27 Feb 1943 from the KY Death Certificate. That's the same document that your findagrave entry cited for the issue related to DOB. If I had to guess, I would bet that the Death Date (Mar 2, 1943) that you show on Find A Grave Memorial# 64689666 is actually a burial date.
I found the document through ancestry.com. If you want a copy of it, I have saved it as a jpg image file and would be happy to send it to you. email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
According to ancestry.com, her husband, Travis Wesley Johnson) was my 1st cousin, 1x removed. His mother, Rachel Emma Abrams, was my maternal grandfather's (Willie Clyde Abrams) sister.
Best regards and good hunting.

Check out the link to daughter Anna for her parents H.W. and L.B. (start at your memorial for Henry, 65239812). I added many memorials and photos for the Ryan cmemtery and tried to include family links. It is especially nice when I can link an infant to parents located elsewhere.
Thanks for your memorials and photos that made this possible.
