Hi Brenda,
I saw that you lost your kitty, Charlie, recently. I'm so sorry. I know how hard it is. I have a completely black cat too. We also have two other cats. Have lost many pets over time.

Maclay Hoyne #93779733
I enjoy reading old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and trying to match the stories and articles to the memorials here on F-A-G. I have found a very nice endorsement of Maclay Hoyne in "The Day Book" (Chicago IL) for 10/14/1916.

I thought you might like to read it.

You are welcome
Dear Brenda: You are so welcome. It is an honor for me to leave flowers for my friends family and loved ones. What a beautiful tribute you did on your Dad's memorial. I loved North Carolina when I lived there. I lived in Sanford and Lemon Springs for 2 and half years back in the 60's. I loved the people and the woods. Take care dear friend.

RE: Hogle Update
Since these Hogles are part of your family, would you like me to transfer them to you so you can link the parents, marriages, etc.
I also have death information for Daniel Hogel death date Nov 27, 1895 0 age, maybe stillborn, parents Jas F. & Lillian Hogel. May be buried here also but no Sexton record to back it up.

RE: Jsut saying HI!
Hi Brenda, I hope you are having a great summer as well. I've been busy. My Dad's dog died and then my Aunt my Dad's sister died a few days later. We had to go from Florida to Southern Maryland for the funeral. Now I think this company called Affixhub was trying to scam me. This company popped up on my computer and I couldn't get it to anything until I talked to these people. They said my computer was infected with 3,600 some viruses and they could clean my computer. They wanted get this $699.00 for a lifetime membership or $599.00 for 5 years. They didn't have a year or 2 year membership. And they don't take credit cards just checks. They wouldn't answer my question when I asked why are you so expensive. I told them I wasn't interested but now they are pestering me because they claim they cleaned up the viruses. I didn't tell them to. So now I really don't know what to do. Because I feel now there really probably was nothing wrong with this computer. I have Webroot already. So I hope this goes away soon. On my bio page I have told people to be aware of these people. Have a nice weekend. Your friend Diana.
