Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy Librarian by profession. It is a goal of mine to have a Findagrave site for each of my relatives. I'm hooked! I've loved cemeteries since I was a child and lead tours each year of our city cemetery. If there is any information you would like to add to any of the memorials I have done, just let me know! I want the memorials to be as complete as possible, so the more information, the better the memorial! Each one I put up is a person who lived, breathed and died. I want to honor their existance. If the memorial is within Findagrave transfer guidelines, I would be happy to transfer. I am currently documenting the burials of Pine Grove Baptist Church Cemetery in LaSalle Parish, LA. All of those Smith and Edwards people are my family!

Death Date for Sophia Catherine (Katie) Clark?
I'm asking even with the pic of the headstone, but is the death date correct?

She appears to be reported on the 1920 census in Grant Parish with her husband, Nellie, and Gordon.

Obviously, she's not on the 1910 census.

Did Irving Perry Duke have a second wife named Katie?

James M. King (1854?-1967)
Dear Lora,

Thank you very much for all of this information about James M. King; I already knew a lot of it (due to the newspaper articles which James M. King's descendant(s) previously sent me), but it is good to hear that Mr. King was being consistent in the information which he gave.

Anyway, I found an article from November 1963 about James M. King's claimed 109th birthday where it states that his father's name was Edward King; it's a shame that it doesn't tell us his mother's name or his parents' ages at the time of their deaths, though.

For the record, James M. King's case is already pending on GRG's Table EE:

(His middle name on this table should be changed to Monroe and I already sent the GRG can e-mail about this; thus, hopefully the GRG will eventually get around to fixing his middle name.)

Also, it is worth noting that I previously did an incredibly amount of research on this man--research which I posted here:

However, I could not find an indisputable 1860 U.S. Census entry for this man. Maybe this man's case will eventually get verified without this U.S. Census entry--I am not completely sure. However, given the fact that James M. King would have been the oldest verified man ever at the time of his death (if he will get verified in the future), it would certainly be nice if an indisputable 1860 U.S. Census entry for this man is ever found/located. Frankly, I think that this man was telling the truth and that he was indeed 112 years old (or extremely close to 112 years old) at the time of his death in 1967; however, an indisputable 1860 U.S. Census entry would help confirm that this man indeed lived to age 112 (I followed the same process when I helped research Robert Alexander Early's (1849-1960; lived 111 years and 1 day) case--previously, I and other people found several U.S. Census entries for him from between 1860 and 1940, but it was only after I found that man's 1850 U.S. Census entry when we became sure that this man was indeed 111 years old at the time of his death in 1960).

Anyway, please let me know any thoughts which you might have on James M. King's case. :)

Question About James M. King (1854?-1967)
Hello Lora,

I have been trying to verifying the age of James M. King (1854?-1967) for the Gerontology Research Group for the last couple of years. It appears that I have found all U.S. Census entries for him other than for the one from 1860. That said, you stated here that you were able to read an interview which James M. King gave in 1965:

If so, then it is okay if you will tell me what exactly he said in this interview? Also, do you know exactly what the names of this man's parents were? Did James M. King ever state the names of both of his parents in that 1965 interview?

Anyway, thank you very much.

Best regards,

Hi Lora!
My cousin ran accross a couple of headstones. He gave me an address. We have not went and looked but the one he did give me the info on matched someone in Sparks-Butler Cemetery. The address is 293 Hodge Watson Road.
I will tell you more when i can.
That's another one!

RE: Charles Lewis
I am so glad you like it. I know how precious old photos can be. If you would prefer it a little darker, let me know and I will do that for you. Thank you for all the research and memorials you have added. Those are so valuable to those who can not find an ancestor! Keep up your good work.

Wow. I just found some other notes and must stand corrected. My grandmother called her husband "Theobalds", pronounced Tibbals. It was her son by the same name who got called Jesse or J.T. He died before I was born.
