RE: Children of James R. & Icaphene Wright.
I'd be glad to create memorials for both of my parents. I don't understand exactly how it's done but it'd be nice to know that the information entered is complete and accurate, unlike several that have been referenced on Ancestry links. I'm coming to understand that most are not created by family members but rather just by interested folks from a collection of information, not always verified, from various sources such as other family trees, obituaries, etc. I'm looking on the site for directions, but would appreciate any help/hints you can offer!

RE: Malinda Owens Lilly FAG 66441789
The only thing I have that indicates her name was Burris is the Portrait and Biographical Record of her grandson James M Byler on page 407 of the "Portrait and Biographical Record of Johnson and Pettis Counties Missouri" published 1895. This says David C Byler, father of James M Byler, was first married to Nancy E Lilly, daughter of David and Malinda (Burris) Lilly.

Could you please tell me where you got the maiden name Owens for Malinda Lilly? I believe her maiden name should be Burris.

Please correct the death date on Aaron B Chadwick's entry. The correct date is Feb. 23, 1911. He is located in the Edens Chapel cemetery, Hillsboro KY. This is my great grandfather and I would like to see the correct information for him.
Thank you,
Judy Lewis

Please accept my heartfelt sympathies for the loss of Blue Too and Buttermilk. I searched for two years to find a Schipperke, which is a very difficult breed to find in the midwest. But, I finally rescued an 8 year old female, Lizzie, and she has been a lifesaver.
Now, back to the Poage headstone. If you have some time, I would really appreciate it if you could take a close look at Mary's date of birth. Mary and Thomas were married in December of 1833 and her siblings were born prior to 1821. Her parents, Boaz and Judith Maxey were married in 1809.
Thanks so much! Happy hunting!

New to this site
Farm Girl, I stumbled upon this site yesterday after googling my Great-Great Grandfather, Thomas Murphy. #37247561. His children listed is incomplete. My Great-Grandmother (Grammy) was Marie Murphy-Hunter. I searched for her today and she does have a listing, #31153138. Since I am new to this site can you help me get Marie listed under her father? She would be Beatrice's sister. It is stated in her obituary under her grave number.

Thank you so much!

RE: Mary Viola Forsythe Warren
You are very Welcome. Your memorial for Silas is well laid out and explains things as best you can at this time. Perhaps in the future a document will pop up that will solve the "W.H." mystery but until then it is just that. A mystery.

As we had dicussed in earlier messages it is one of three things.

A complete goof by whoever did the stone.
She remarried sometime between Silas's death and the 1925 census.
Silas was known by another name.

It was a fun little adventure. I found you very easy to work with and open to suggestions (theories). Perhaps in the future we can work togather again as the Chillicothe Cemetery is on my list of places to visit and photograph. (It is a very long list. LOL)

Best regards
