Flora Azora Lyda Case Hill At age 88 I want to apologize right off the bat for not remembering what I wrote you about last year. I have gone back over Flora Azora Lyda checked her death cert. She was the daughter of Jacob Merrimon Lyda and Rhoda Mackey. She married first to Thomas Case and he died in 1898 and then later she married Waddell Grayson Hill. It is very confusing. She has two memorials. She was buried with her first husband, Thomas Case at Refuge Baptist Church Cemetery. She has a memorial as Flora Azora Lyda Case and is connected to both Waddell and Thomas on the memorial. She also has a memorial as Flora Azora Lyda Hill which legally she was when she died. Waddell is buried at Oakland Cemetery. I have my files straightened out but I am sure there will be a lot of confused people in these families. I am sorry that I can't remember what I wrote. I guess with the health problems I have and my age maybe you can forgive me. You all do such a great job with your work and I appreciate you so very much. Eleanor Morrison Lawson (email@example.com)
Ruth Hollingsworth Hi Rebecca - Would you please link Ruth to her parents on findagrave? Her parents are Winfield Pace, No. 82554978 and Sarah Buckner Pace, No. 82555090. Ruth’s memorial that you created is No. 9514109. If you prefer, I will do it if you transfer management of Ruth’s memorial to me. I am Frank Parker, findagrave member No. 47053231. Thanks
Morrison, Hill, Lyda, Jones,Justus and many more Rebecca, thank you so much for all the help you give to others through Find A Grave. I have recently been working on my Lyda families and noticed that you have Flora A Lyda as daughter of Jacob Manley and Mary Louise Collins Williams Lyda. They only had the one child, James Hobart who only lived about two years. They married after the 1910 census and on the 1920 census there was a note at the top of the page that said"On line 46 Jacob M Lyda, him and his wife not living together, no divorce, two illegible words, year. No children. (by then the son was dead) I appreciate all you do for us. Because of my age and health I can no longer visit cemeteries so I REALLY appreciate you. Flora belonged to Jacob Merrimon and Rhoda Mackey Lyda. She married Thomas S Case and is buried beside him at Refuge Baptist Church, Dana, Henderson Co, NC. I hope you won't mind my using copies of your photos in my family files on Ancestry. I am trying so hard to leave as much as I can for my descendants and others to learn of their heritage. God bless you in your helping others. Eleanor Morrison Lawson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Link to Parents for Orville E Watson Rebecca, I have sent a "Relationship Parent Link" Edit to you for Orville E Watson, Findagrave memorial #8395383, to help you link Orville to both his parents. Reverend Orville Ernest Watson never married. His mother's death date was listed on Findagrave as her birth date and I have sent the contributor the information for the correction. Joseph Watson, #132175359 was his father and Ellie Mills, #132175678 was his mother (even though her birth date is listed incorrectly at the moment as 1890). Thank you so much for your work in documenting the graves. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!! Sandy Marsaw

Eleanor Hipps Franklin You have the memorial for my 1st cousin 'Ellie' Eleanor Hipps Franklin # 7547312 but her parents and brother have never been put on her memorial. I guess it's important to me because I'm getting old and have lost almost all my family and we were close.
Would you please link them? I was very close to my dad's family when they were still alive and I would love to see them together on the memorial.
By the way, her nick name was Ellie. She was a wonderful person.
Ellie's family: Father- Edison Durant "Ed" Hipps # 65350369 *My Uncle* Mother- Beatrice Eller "Bea" Hipps # 65350381 Brother- Harold Dean "Dean" Hipps # 96696945
