“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” Albert Pike (1809 – 1891) American attorney, journalist, and Civil War veteran.
Many errors are occurring on memorials due to inaccurate "Edits." Please provide a source or sources (such a book, will, obituary, census record, birth/death certificate, or family Bible record) for any changes on these memorials. Linking or changing a memorial will be done only when a verifiable source is provided.
RE: M. Laura Blankenship Cassaday Got your note tonight about her parents and the cemetery, still working on the data, however from my past with others on Find A Grave, I thought it better to move slowly.
RE: Billie J Heslip Thank you for questioning my edit. I do not have any backup info to send you at this time. My info came from Ancestry. Joe B. and Rosa M. Heslip had a son by the name of Billie Joe Heslip born about 1927. There is no census for this as the father (Joe B.) died 1935 from a gun shot wound and there are no traces of the family after that. If you do not accept the edit, it is okay I understand.
MARJORIE MEADOWS DICKENSON You're very welcome. She comes from a China Spring family, and I'm a "Chiney Gal"! My family has been there since the 1800's and I know the older China Spring families, and am related to most of them! I come from the Yankies and Whitfields. Kind Regards, Nancy
Philip and Frances Ross Hi! I posted a photo today on Philip Ross's page. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Frances has been buried yet. There are no new graves near him, and I checked all the fresh graves in the cemetery for her name. There is a blue construction flag next to him, so the burial may be very soon.
The portrait is beautiful! I had not seen it previously. Where is the original, do you know? I would love to see it someday. Thank you so much for finding it and posting the copy. And, thanks for letting me know you had posted it.
Are you related? And/or is Joan (Druesedow) Griggs related? Francis and my 2nd great grandfather, Edmund WEBB, were half siblings (same father, different mother).
Thanks again! It certainly helps fill out her story on her memorial!
