A single mom and empty nester, always interested in my past. Hope someone will enter the names of my lost relatives for me as I hopefully am helping someone find their lost ones. I have set up a virtual cemetery for the victims of the General Slocum Disaster in New York City on June 15, 1904, please e-mail me with any corrections, additions, or changes. I am using three different sources for my information and there are many differences. First time Grandmother to Noah Henry Johnson born 7-27-09!!! I do not have Internet access at home so please be patient with me. I must go to the library to make corrections or transfers. If you want a transfer, please provide your member number in the request. I try to go at least once a month. Thanks. If I do not make the changes requested it is because I did not understand your request or I had mutiple memorials with the same name and was unable to identify who you were referring to. A no-reply request leaves me no options but to wait for a second request hopefully with more info. Sorry. Including memorial numbers is helpful.

Are you familiar with this person? I was going to add the maiden name Swinney to Martha Ann Johnson, but notice that the photo of the tombstone has the maiden name "Sessions". Our genealogical information is that she was a Swinney, and in fact I have a photo of a tombstone that has the maiden name Swinney on it. I wonder if someone replaced the tombstone because of an error on it? I am going to go by the Laneville Cemetery and see which tombstone is there now, and if it is the other one that I have, then I will add it in the future. Hope this makes sense.
Catherine Reis Memorial# 18560825 I do not know who Shad Wilde is but he reposted Catherine's picture on her memorial. THAT IS MY PERSONAL PICTURE which I removed. I have written to him and Find A Grave to have it removed. You are both subject to copyright infringement if he does not remove it.
Henry Phillips, Mexia Cem. Morning Judi, The library failed to provide any clues to the location of his burial, however, I was able to obtain the obituary and post that information. I also included a request for someone to check with Corley funeral home in the problem section and pass the location, if obtained, back my way so that your request can be completed, we'll see. Good luck on your quest, Later, James Coston
Henry Phillips, Mexia Cem. Morning Judi, I was unable to locate a burial site for Henry, however, I did find and photograph his obituary. Info was gleamed there but there are roadblocks. The service was provided by Corley Funeral Home in Mexia. I have dealt with them before and they are reluctant to give out info about location of burials unless, in my opinion, $$$ is involved. So, in your interests, I suggest that U contact them, get the needed location, (Section only, grave site not important) then pass it back to me. I will go out there and complete your request. They don't take kindly to my visits .......... Later this week I will post the obituary. Later, James Coston
Henry Phillips, Mexia Cem. Evening Judi, Yesterday I was not able to locate a marker for Henry Phillips & the library was closed so there was no availability to reference material. I did find evidence of an adult male being buried by Lillian Phillips Martin and they are siblings. I "witched" the area, for lack of a better term, and an unmarked adult mail is buried to the left of her, then other Phillips's to her right. Being as Henry was not married, that would be a good place for him, with his sister. The library has a book that, instead of listing people alphabetically, lists them as they are buried, row by row. It's good for locating people who had a stone that went missing or never had one. I'm headed over there now to see if it will solve the puzzle. Your bio sez that with no interned service, U need to visit the library so by the time U see this then hopefully the mystery will be solved. Later, James Coston
