"regarding Marker Transcription, although I have long been prone to omit such in my memorial creations if that wording is clear within the stone's photograph. To me, it is repetitious and serves no purpose"

I like to include the marker transcription, because:
1. If there is ever a compilation of the text of all the memorials, the transcription would then be included.
2. Some people can't see as well as others.
3. The viewer does not have to open the photo in order to read the enlarged text in the photo.
4. I have been able to read some transcriptions that others say is too faded or illegible, and then include it for everyone.

Thank you, David, for your hard work for the relatives of all those who have passed on.

Done. Sorry for the delay, I've been working on another line, deep in the bottom of a cemetery book, lol.

RE: re: Beulah C. Wyatt
Hi David-
Always nice to get more info, thanks. I know Beulah was married to George Wyatt in 1919 and had 2 kids. You said they were divorced which I didn't know. Where did you find the obituary for her? I guess I am just curious why after over 20 years married to John Belton, her gravestone only says "Mother" and not "Wife", and the stone is for "Beulah C Wyatt", not "Beulah Belton". I guess maybe her kids didn't like Belton?

Hi there! I will delete mine and will put the pic on yours. I did not realize you could change the location without making a new entry. Thanks! Jackie

Thank you for posting the cemetery map of the US Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery. Do you know how to find burial locations in this cemetery? Although the web site says the cemetery is open M-F, I've been several times between the stated hours and the office has been locked. Thanks for any guidance!

Thank you Dave for sending information for his memorial. I appreciate it very much. I'm in North Carolina quite a bit as my daughter and family moved there about 17 years ago. Love it there!

I just noticed that the obit had spelled his sister's last name wrong. It is Faires, not Farris. Could you change that? thank you.

I am emailing you after I sent you an obit on him. I realize that I typed the wrong birth year. It was 1880, not 1890. thank you.

Julia Harringer Oxford
You have the wrong maiden name. She married William Dotson Oxford Jr. on 15 Oct 1893 at Little twp., Caldwell Co., North Carolina. You are correct, I found no children either. Her parents were Sidney M. and Eliza Whitener.

Jackie Rogers, family genealogist
By the way, how did the Dotson name come into the family. My ex husband was a Dotson from Ohio origin. William Dotson Oxford Jr. is the husband of Amanda May Jane Reid, whom mother was Mary Isabel Sherrill (1855-1928), my grand aunt of husband of grand aunt.

RE: Fred Richard Paisley
Thanks for the reply. I think I'll have some luck over time with a few other research options. A few years ago, I caught an ad in the local newspaper regarding a man who passed away and the VA was trying to find any member of his family. Evidently, the home he was in didn't have any one at all on record. However, I did find them for them. I had little to go on with that search, too. It may seem silly to some but I like to "return" pictures and original docs I find in frames; for some that may be the only tangible memorabilia they have for a family member. Again, thanks for replying. Keep up the GREAT work! Your posts are wonderful.

Are you a member of the Paisley Family?

I've purchased an antique photo for the frame at an antique store in Forest City, NC. On the back mat of this baby's picture is some information but not enough for me to pinpoint a city. The photo's photographer's mat reads Smiths, Dayton, Ohio. I don't know if that means the pic was taken in Ohio or processed there and mailed off as there is a partial address on the back. The photo is in pristine condition and I'd like very much to send it to the proper Paisley family member. If you are a member of this family, I'll be happy to email you the info and email the pic for verification.

I am Elizabeth's son. You can give me control of the grave.

RE: re: Daniel Starr
I would prefer you transfer control to my son, but do not want to give his email address in a public messsage. I will ask him to write to you.

Thank you, Elizabeth

Daniel Starr
Daniel Starr was the son of Abner Starr. I have the H.F. Starr Annie E. Young family Bible and information back to Hessen, Germany. Would be pleased to fill in gaps. Abner was married to Mary "Polly" Weitzel. Daniel was married to Sarah Minervah "Sally" Lowe. (I have Daniel's engraved death announcement that I was told was carried from house to house on a silver tray.) Why are you interested in the Starrs? My father is the last of his branch of the family with the family name. He had no brothers or sons.

Hi David,
I noticed that you added the McAdoo line to find a grave. I was wondering if you where connected to them?
If so can we talk?
