My families that I research are, Burgess, Davis, Lowe, Starks, Whisenant, Elliott, Griggs, Dotson, Reece, Buchanan, McFalls, Myers, Woody and Bearden.

I've been doing research for more than 20 years. My mom helped me in libraries, cemeteries and the many stories I heard from her on our relatives. I think she enjoyed it, almost as much as I do. She has since past. Thanks Mom for all your help. I miss you being with me on this journey.

did not know where she was interred.

Thanks #148600703

Wall of Faces VWM Burgess
found the grave for William C Burgess Jr killed in Vietnam. We are all working on the wall of faces on the page. We need a picture for William C Burgess Jr, PFC 19498759
Im thinking you are a relative of sorts since I know Elijah is a very small town, or at least it was.
Is there a person who can provide a picture for the wall? here is a link so you can see what is going on..

The idea behind the project is that everyone sees a wall with names which is great. as time passes though we would like to have faces and any stories about the men who died serving our country so far away from home. Their likes, dislikes, anything and any picture, high school year book or picture fishing or in uniform .. to put a face on the memorial and give these names a life. They existed.
thank you for any help you can give. Marshia

On the Memorial for Blanche Burgess Hannah, please remove the link to parents as those links are not
the correct parents. After you remove the links to Joe and Maude Burgess, I will add the correct links. Thank you, a daughter.

Obit and stone have different death dates
The listing of Jane Hughes Stanley (#28232251)has a picture of her stone and the death date in July , but the obit says she died Dec. 15 1908. I am wondering which is true. She is my great great grandmother.
