RE: Douglas Hand
No problem, I was in Damascus and had to find some of my family in the same cemetery.

Headstone pic request for Mary Meadows (Dunns, WV cemetery)
Hi David,

I have a pic of the headstone of a Mary J. Meadows, wife of J.R.A. Meadows; born Feb 23, 1868, Died Feb. 1901. (Dunns, WV cemetery)

Could this be the Mary Meadows you are looking for?

If so, send me a note, and I'll pass it along to you.

RE: Charles M. Canaday & Dicy Elizabeth (Daniel) Canaday Thompson
Looks great! I have sent the picture to my 2 aunts to see if they can tell me who else is in the picture.

RE: Winifred Canaday
I guess. I had Winford as a male, so when I saw Winifred, I think of that as a girl's name, so I thought Elsie might be a sister. Maybe I only had it half wrong.

Anyway I found an obituary for Dicy and copied and pasted it into the Edit suggestion, in case you would like to add it to her memorial.

RE: Charlie & Dicy's children, etc.
MONROE!!! I just found a hint on Ancestry for the WV Birth Index and for Waymon, it lists his father as Charley Monroe Canaday.

RE: Charlie & Dicy's children, etc.
I have 2 others, George Ambers and Winford or maybe Winifred. Look at this memorial # 113906202. It makes me wonder if there is another one, Elsie.

RE: Lee Canaday
Great! I didn't even have Lee. Now I wonder how many others I am missing.

RE: Charles M.
I am very sorry to hear about your wife's troubles. I hope she fully recovers soon.

I also submitted other edits to Charles' memorial, such as his place of death. You will find them if you go to the "Contributor Tools" on the left when you are under your account on Find A Grave, then click on the "Edits" Tab. The "M" is still a mystery to me as well. I have his birth record, marriage record, death register and death certificate, and his name is always Charles M. Charles' only sister is my grandmother, Ocal Elizabeth Canaday Horton. May I ask how you are connected?

I would love to see the pictures you have. I believe you have my email address. Thank you so much for helping me link the family together.

RE: Amanda T. Ward

Since the marker was partially buried, I referred to the Muhlenberg County Cemeteries records compiled by Marian Hammers. Shaver Cemetery was transcribed in November 1969. This was my only source of the death date for Amanda T. Ward.

Thank you for transferring your memorial. I have deleted my duplicate.

I created a duplicate memorial for Amanda T. Ward, daughter of Commodore and Hel[l]en Ward in error.

I have added a photo to your original memorial (114023074). She is buried in "Shavers Cemetery" in Lynn City, Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. Will you please transfer your memorial with burial listed as "unknown" to this cemetery?

Please let me know when you have made the transfer so I can delete my duplicate.

Thanks for your help.
