RE: John D. Kinser
What an interesting story about your mother; and what a treasure to have!! Speaking of hair, there was a gentleman who found out his father was at Camp Barkeley and was looking for any information. His father Mr. Williams was a Private in Company D and probably cut the enlisted men's hair from 1942-1943. Re: John, I don't know what connection there would have been to Baylor, but that was the address he would have enlisted from I believe - as the addresses are next to each man's picture and normally match up to the draft info. on Well, if we don't correspond again, I hope you have a blessed holiday season.

RE: John D. Kinser
Ron, Thank you for your (and John's) story. It's all very interesting, and coincidental, too! I'm especially intrigued that you visited Camp Barkeley many times. I have a facebook page dedicated to Camp Barkeley, and there was a gal who happened along whose grandparents ran the tailor shop there. You may have known them. I certainly hope it's John's photo, as I can only be mostly sure when I post them, hoping family will see them (and the correct photo). He was on Baylor Street in Austin at draft time.

John D. Kinser
Hello Ron, You wrote an extensive bio for John, so I thought I'd let you know I posted his graduation photo from Officer Candidate School, Medical Administrative Corps, Camp Barkeley, TX, WWII, from the Class 26 yearbook that I found in my father's belongings after he passed away.

RE: memorial for samantha foster.
Hello Ron; there is no specific "merge button" that I can find. However, I have had some success with merging Memorials by sending an e-message to:

giving them all relevant information. It takes about 2 weeks to get results.

Thanks, and good luck!

PS: Please let me know how you make out.

Elizabeth Alford Boon Memorial
I sent you an email direct asking about other possible marriages for Elizabeth Alford. Did you get it?

RE: william knight younts
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question about William Yonts. In this area (Muhlenberg County, KY) many of the stones for this family are spelled Yonts. However, it is said that my many-times great grandmother insisted it must be spelled with a "Z." I just thought the middle name of Knight might indicate that he was named for someone in his family by that name. I'll keep it in mind when next I work on the line. I appreciate your response and also all the contributions you make to Find a Grave memorials. Oh, yes, one more thing. Several years ago Brenda Collier Doss, who has made many contributions to genealogical research locally, stated to me that she had found a small stone in Nelson Creek Cemetery for Wlliam. To my knowledge she has never documented it but it does make sense that he and his wife would have been buried together. I have an inventory of his estate by son William (and wife Katharine) which confirms somewhat his date of death. I have also worked on the Heltsley line. Brenda C. Doss was a Heltsley descendant. Again, thanks.

William Knight Younts
Re William Knight Younts #133957459 and wife Mary Spraker #116471037. These two people are also my fifth great grandparents also. And I'm 85 years old! I descend from their son Rudolph. Am interested in knowing to which of their nine children you belong. Also would be interested in the source of William's middle name "Knight." This is new to me and I've worked on the Yontz (the spelling my ggg Betsy (Yontz) Smith preferred) many years. Appreciate your response. Thanks. ....Dorann O'Neal Lam, native of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.

Ron, Sorry that I am unable to help you concerning Find A Grave inactive contributors. The Humphreys are distance cousins by marriage of mine to a daughter of Doug & Emma Floyd (1st cousin of my grandmother). Their daughter, Myrtle Floyd first married a Cross and then married a Humphrey. Hope that helps. Sharon

RE: FAG # 10663753
Sorry, but I only listed them on findagrave. Don't know too much about most of them.
Again, so
