Hello, I saw that you made a memorial for my great grandmother Rosie. I really appreciate it. Can you please transfer it to me so that I can include the history of her life? Thanks

Wayne was my first cousin. I have been trying to locate him and his wife for several years. How did you come to add this memorial? If possible, I am trying to locate his burial site. We grew up together and he was one of my favorite cousins. I am saddened to learn that he has passed away and eager to learn more about his death and burial. TY for any information you could share.

Hi Sandi,

I see that you've created and maintain two separate memorials for Smithie Crutchfield Polk - namely #62731678 and #14767722. I was initially confused by the two memorials because of the wording of the Note currently on memorial #62731678.

I gather from your note on memorial #62731678, that the headstone (and also the body I assume) for Smithie Crutchfield Polk have been exhumed and moved from the Byrne Cemetery in Grimes County to the Lake Grove Cemetery, also in Grimes County. If so, I suggest that you revise the bio on memorial #14767722 to state the following and that you delete the current note on #62731678:

"The body for Smithie Crutchfield Polk has been exhumed and moved along with her headstone from this cemetery (Byrne Cemetery, Grimes County) to the Lake Grove Cemetery, also in Grimes County. Henceforth, please make note that her primary Find-a-grave memorial is #62731678, showing her final burial location as the Lake Grove Cemetery."

Alternatively, I recommend that you contact and request that these two memorials be merged, to avoid damaging previously established links and to avoid losing information.

I hope this helps to clarify her burial location and the reason for the two separate memorials.

Clara Smith, Concord Cemetery
I think this could be my grandmother's sister Geraldine Smith. The death year and location are correct, and I think Clara may have been part of her name also according to records. However, my grandmother's first name is Clara (she's living) and only knows her sister by Geraldine. If it is her, she was in her early twenties when she died, so the birth year would have been 1900's.

Catherine Tillery (Taylor?)
Born in 1860. Child of Margaret Rasco & John Tillery. John was killed in the war and Margaret married Wm. Martin Taylor Jan 1865. Catherine was 5 years old when they married. Please correct her father to John Tillery. If she was given the name of Taylor, there is no record of it or any record of adoption.

William D Collins, Union Hill Cemetery?
Was so excited to see the graves you entered for Pvt. John A. Collins and his daughter-in-law Annie Collins. John A is my father-in-laws grandfather and I believe Annie was his fathers first wife. As far as I can tell, she and William D. Collins were married 7 July 1891 and she died in 1895.

My father-in-law and three of his brothers were raised in Buckner's orphans home. Their father, William D. Collins, born around 1869-70, who was Annie's husband is a mystery to us. Some say he was killed in an accident and some say he just ran off. I cannot locate any burial records for him. Do you think he may also be buried at the Union Hill cemetery? The last information I can find on him was a census in 1900. He then just disappears. Thanks for all you've done. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Jesse Jolly Information
I found your information on Jesse Jolly, my great, great, great grandfather on the page of Louis Quigley Jolly who was my grandfather's brother. I was never able to link Jesse to his son Quigley until I read your information. Thank you so much. If you have any further information on Jesse Jolly, like the names of all his children I really would appreciate you sending it to me.

The information I got from you here inspired me to become a Find A Grave volunteer in my area.

Thank you again.

I just wanted to thank you for your much appreciated work in providing data for my ancestors.

I am researching the ancestors from my maternal side who resided in Grimes County Texas. Because of your work I've been able to solve one family mystery.

Again thank you so much for sharing your finds.
