RE: Big Favor
I have left him a message but he hasn't called me back yet. I will let you know as soon as I hear something. I see that someone has created another Brammer Cemetery and put Foley graves there. The caretaker might be able to shed some light on that. Could be on private land like some others I have discovered recently out that way.

RE: Duplicate
then probably the correct thing would have been to notify the other contributor so that they could have moved it to the correct cemetery. Denise<><

Thank you so much for the photos of Myrtle and her husband Dudley's graves. I am glad that you liked the pictures that I added. I feel really good about how their memorials turned out. The photos that you were kind enough to take for me really completed it nicely. Thank you so much for finding them and for setting up their memorials. I greatly appreciate it.

I am helping the granddaughter of John and Macie Hawley (his is #86664679). I see that you added an area picture of where he is buried, but his granddaughter is fairly certain that they have a stone. Have you looked and not found one? Or shall I request one on her behalf? Thanks much.

re: RE: Brammer Cemetery
Ok, I checked my pictures and the Brammer list and there are no Foleys. BUT, I have 26 UNKNOWNS, such as broken headstones, unreadable headstones and fieldstones.
I have a contact number for the caretaker of that cemetery if you'd like for me to contact him?

re: RE: Brammer Cemetery
That's correct. I photographed every headstone ad when I got home I checked the pictures against the memorials. If a memorial had to be created, then I created one. The only pics I had left were unreadable, broken or just field stones. I can check the list I have and see if there are any Foley's.

RE: Brammer Cemetery
Yes, I was just there in July and photographed the entire cemetery.

If you stay on Rt. 19 to Flat Top and over the turnpike bridge (named for my cousin and brother), turn right onto Egeria Rd. just past the bridge. Follow it about a mile and it will be on the right side. From Odd the only way I would know would be to follow the road that goes up along side the post office. At both forks in the road, stay to the left and it will come back to Rt. 19. In this case it will be on your left after you pass that big white church on the right (don't know the name). I don't know of any shortcuts from Odd.
Hope it helps!

worley adkins
Hi I got an edit from you for Azel Worley Adkins. I received this e-mail from a family member: Their suggestion:
I received your message about my memorials for Whorley and Frances Virginia Ewing Adkins being duplicates and I should delete. I'm sorry but I'm not convinces Azel Whorley Adkins is my 2nd g. uncle Whorley Adkins. I have yet to find a record for his that includes the name Azel and a headstone is not enough proof. His Social Security retirement claim states his name is Whorley Adkins, every census record all of his children's birth, marriage and or death records, his death record and marriage record, his obituary and my grandmother's bible all say Whorley Adkins, not Azel Whorley Adkins. To delete my memorials would also break the link I have for one of his children.

Therefore, If you can prove these are the same people then I'm open to any solution that doesn't require me to delete the work I did to write the biographies and break the link to his son Clyde.

I have no clue... Could you and she work on this and let me know what to do. Thank you. Shauna

Re: Lettie Clay Brooks, Find A Grave Memorial# 141592966
This is the right stone and location for Lettie, although from the photo you have posted the cemetery looks quite overgrown now! Lettie was my Great Uncle Harlen's wife and they lived in Eccles. If you check the info on her death certificate you will see it is the same person (although her birthdate is different by two days). I have had the photo in my files for a long time and honestly don't remember when I got it. It may have been one that my parents took for me back in the 1990's when they were searching cemeteries for me.
