can you confirm that Mr Hitt was a 303rd Bomb Group member during WWII because i've found a crew' pic on fold3 website (and 303rdbg.com website to) taken on 22 march 1945, and it seems the two persons look to be the same
Virginia Blakely Mosby Just letting you know that I came across the obituary for Virginia B. Mosby, who was a sister of John Singleton Mosby, and a daughter of Alfred & Virginia Mosby. I've made an entry for her on Find A Grave and connected her to the parents that you had added.
It would be nice to be able to find some of the others.
Lafayette McMullen Hi my name is Harold Richardson I saw where you added Lafayette McMullen to findagrave. Is he a family member? My 3rd great grandmother Hannah Richardson had 4 kid by a John McMullen in Grayson Co (where she lived became Carroll in 1442)in the 1820's. Irene the oldest girl had 2 kids she was never married that we can find. Her son James Richardson named his oldest son Lafayette McMullen Richardson.
Family stories are that Hannah Richardson had these kids by John McMullen who was a poltician. They say that he got Hannah land in Russell Co Va. That is where she live for the rest of her life.

Did Lafayette McMullen have a conection to John or could this be the same person?
Johnny (as I always heard him referred to ) was my grandmother's first husband, and father to her two oldest daughters, Maurine and Florine. It is my understanding that Johnny worked for the railroad as a fireman, and that he died in an accident related to his work. I'm very interested in finding out more.
Did you know that Florence M. Beall, whose tombstone you also submitted was his wife (my grandmother)?
RE: McMullen Sorry, the web site must have dropped his name. It was Lafayette McMullun/ McMullin. I realize he was killed by a train, I was wondering if you had done the research and had a newspaper article. Sorry to bother you, Jack Elaine
Lafayette McMullen Jack, you left a note on McMullen's find a grave site. It said he passed in a train wreck? Would have an article about this? He was married to Mary Wood. I'm researching her family. Thanks. Eline
Duplicate memorial There are two memorials for the same person, one of which you created. Can you consult with the owner of the other memorial and consolidate your information and photos into just one and delete the other?
