Token you left for Traci Fields
Thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!

This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.

RE: Dates vary so will mileage
Thanks! I am the daughter of William Floyd Sells born in Byrdstown. His father was John Cato aka Johnnie Kato Sells buried down there somewhere too. His dad was Solomon Clayton and mother was Laura Ann Jones Sells. I have a great PDF I'd be happy to share with you if you'd send me your email. I'm :) I grew up with my mother's mother's people in Jackson County Alabama outside Stevenson, but my best fried up here is Becky Bilbrey whose dad was Clyde Lee and Mother was Betty June Ledbetter Bilbrey. We laughed because surely we are related and I know she is related to relatives as he aunt married a relation.

Thanks again,
Keilah 12/20/1964

Dates vary so will mileage
Hi. I think we must be distantly related. :) Thanks for keeping records and sharing them. The dates I have found in several sites had the birth years off by at least 10 years. It's humbling to see all the generations and touching to learn something personal about them. Thanks again.

I noticed that you have a death date of 1890. My previous information showed 1850. Can you please confirm the 1890 date with documentation? Cemetery record? I'm seeking for DAR status. Thanks

Sophronia Cannady

I think the gravestone for Sophronia is Mother. According to Death certificate ( #13778) dates 28 Sept 1844 18 Sept 1918.

RE: Gunter Cemetery
We have 3 grandkids we didn't have when we moved to TN and we get to see them maybe 3 times a year. Now they'll be 2 hours away. And we've got his son about 5 miles from where we'll be, so they can golf and get stupid together. Not looking forward to the gray, cold winters up there but...

RE: Gunter Cemetery
Thanks Sharyl - we hope so too. I'll still be doing some connect the dots on Tn memorials since it's too cold to work anywhere outside up there during the winter. Lots of things I'll miss here, but we're heading home to the kids.

I believe you have placed this photo on the wrong memorial. Middle initial, birth and death dates, wife do not match. Please transfer your photo to memorial #42152039. Thanks ~ Jo C

Nice find on this one! I've moved Sarah McDonald as requested.
Moving back to Ohio next week - bad timing with winter coming, but hey, house sold, gotta go. Hope you're spiffy yourself.

Thanks for posting the image of the headstone. For awhile I thought I had the wrong person as I could not find a death certificate in Missouri and wondered if I had the right year for his death. Turns out that he died in California, but thanks to you I continued to search for a death in 1945.

I have been searching for my Great Grandmother's burial place for years. She died in Bulls Gaps-Greene County so I've been concentrating all my efforts in this area. You have her buried in Overton County, which is a mystery. I'm just wondering how you determined it was her.

RE: Winnifred Hill
I would like to transfer. I have gathered lots of info on Winnie, her children and grands and even have a copy of her probated will. I have been "searching" since 1980 and still have unanswered questions, but find hints in the oddest places. The whole genealogy world is addictive. Thanks for your help, if you need help I will be glad to try.

Sorry, but not related at all. I sometimes get really side tracked, lol. Do you want what I have put in for maybe someone else you might find?

Please contact me. My GGGfather was married to your Great Aunt Elizabeth Clayton.

RE: William Byrd 136263601
Thank you for posting the pictures of their markers. Yes William is a family member. A great great uncle. It took me 3 years to find him. Family word was he left home around the age of 17-18 headed to Missouri. I would love the transfers if you don't mind.

Thanks Richard

I would like to know where that picture was taken. The dates are the same as my ggrandfather Marion Ridley Robbins. Thanks

RE: Frances Burton
She is a distant cousin (2nd cousin, twice removed). You can transfer her if you like, and if someone comes along that is closer, I will transfer to them!
