|Holley Izard||Rev. James Williams family|
Hi, I am very impressed with your attention to detail on the Williams line I've been working on.
I am helping a Williams descendant with a Daughters of the American Revolution application. I have found 4 proven DAR patriots through the line of James Williams and Sarah Allison, but all 4 previous apps are through their son, Chesley.
Your mention of a Family Bible may be the proof needed to connect Martha Matilda and Alfred Ogilvie Williams to her parents, and hopefully to their son Chesley B. Williams.
If you can help me with these two generations, I would greatly appreciate it. You can answer me through FindAGrave, or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance. Holley Izard

|CFBass||Thanks for Henry Bass Information!|
My family appreciates the work you did on the Rev. Henry Bass's grave in South Carolina (d. 1860). He was the younger brother of my 4th-great-grandfather. They were born to a veteran of the War of Independence in Connecticut, but moved south when in their 20s.
We had never seen that photo and thank you for publishing it.

As Miss Mary Ann Waters, a young lady about twenty years of age, engaged in teaching school in the East part of Town (Martinsburg), was returning home on horseback, June 20, 1829, her horse was startled and stopped by a tree falling across the road in front, and directly after another tree fell and killed both horse and its rider.

|Don Leuty||RE: Virgil Amelia Chaffin|
Also, my aunt's research notes indicate that in an interview with Belle Caffin Ricter named her 2nd daughter, Virgil Amelia Richter after her.
She was the granddaughter of Bat Millhollon, the first Sheriff of Hopkins County, Texas and Elizabeth Lindley, the first daughter of Jacob Marion Lindley and Alsey Ruth Gibson

|Martha Churchill||RE: McLean|
Martha McLean wrote a letter to her son Francis Lane McKindley on March 9, 1850; here is an excerpt (her spelling was terrible)
"Mary Ann was in good health I belief if my memory write she weighed 1 hundred and sixty and Ebenezar's wife 1 hundred and eighty they have some fat folks their..."
She also wrote:
"Your uncle james [probably James McLean] went to Livingston county michigan."
Martha McLean was very interested in plants, gardens, trees, farm animals, and fruit trees. I got the info on Martha McLean's letters from a cousin, Jack McKindley, a genealogist descended from Francis Lane McKindley. He is my grandfather's second cousin. He is the one who enabled me to identify the tintype of Martha McLean, which came from a photo album that was passed down in my mother's family. I put that tintype on the internet and I am happy to see it is on the Find a grave site for her.

|Barbara Arceneaux||RE: Chevra Thilim Memorial Park|
Oh I assumed you lived here in NOLA. I love the Jewish Cemeteries. They remind me of Wisconsin. In ground burials. My goal is to finish them by the end of the year. I have just finished photographing Beth Israel #2 so I am on to that one! I love Find A Grave. I just started doing this and I am sad I haven't started earlier. If I can ever help you out just let me know!

That would be fine with me. I think some of the problem is due to the fact it is called different things by different people. I wonder if find-a-grave allows for multiple references. It's a little funny because this isn't the easiest cemetery to find. Now that I think about it, I think it is actually located on what is part of Panola Park. I seem to recall that my husband and I had to talk to park rangers to gain permission to the cemetery. I don't think many people do this but we did because someone had told us it would be wise because of the location.

I will have to do some checking. If memory serves me correctly, it is located right at the Rockdale/Henry County lines. I went and photographed graves at the request of someone in 2011 and uploaded them to the cemetery that was with the request. I had taken additional pictures of some graves in the immediate vicinity of the graves requested and made memorials because none existed in that group. It appears that this cemetery has been replicated. I will try to remember to check the cemetery books at the genealogical society on Friday. I did not intentionally duplicate your memorials and will remove them after I figure out what has happened.

Thank you so much for taking the time to document all of these graves. Means so much to the families!
I have corrected the problem.

|Sammy Garner||RE: Holland Question|
I created the memorial but I did not add the family links. Other people in the Find A Grave system must have added them. From some of the obits it appears someone has added some wrong links. As a member of Find A Grave you can add the proper links.

My email address is email@example.com and I would be happy to email you what I've got.
Added by macs417 on Jan 30, 2015 2:27 PM
Thank you for your notification. I am aware of the situation. To make a long story short, somehow Find a Grave applied my name to about 300 memorials I did not create. They were created by 2 or 3 other contributors. The photos they upload also were attributed to me although they are not my photos nor did I upload them. Some of the memorials have already been restored to their original state and hopefully Find a Grave will "fix" the others. Therefore I have not altered those memorials in any way. It is baffling as to how or why it occurred but I am trying to exercise patience in this matter.

Priscilla & Scott,
You both deserve a great, big thank you for deleting your memorial and keeping mine. Most people would not have been so kind; I am very thankful for people like you. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

I am a novice at this and don't really know how to do that. Can you help me?
The cemetery is on private land on his old farm I believe.

my great, great grandfather Terrell Bird. Terrell and other Byrd family members are buried at the Byrd Cemetery, Newton County, GA
Lee Bird died during the Civil War at Vicksburg, MS.
I know that this request out of the Find A Grave guidelines, but I would most certainly appreciate the transfer.

Yes, her married name is Grooms. Also, Juanita B. Steed Jobe is buried at the same cemetery, and she is the daughter of Emma Jobe Steed and Edward Forest Steed (both buried at Green Lawn cemetery in Portsmouth). Emma and Edward also have another daughter buried with them at Greenlawn, Berenice Steed. Thanks for the beneficial service you are providing!

Thank you just doesn't seem adequate to convey my gratitude for your transferring the memorial of Minnie Rebecca Ivey Amos to my care. It is an honor to manage her memorial. Again, thank you so much for creating the memorial and for all you do to further the mission of Find A Grave.
I salute you this Memorial Day!
