Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired and live in the Texas Panhandle. I have been putting bio's and flowers on memorials for over six years, and when I couldn't find my grandparents, I decided I would add Memorials and put a voice to my families, I don't want them to be forgotten.
This is a picture of my parents, they were Helen Elaine Lott and Steve William Lanning, they were born in 1918.

RE: Orin Ward
Hello Donna,
Orin, the son of W.C. and Margaret Grigsby Ward..? Strange you sent that now, just yesterday I was looking for a death certificate or something on him. I do not have access to so I am limited in my search in that area.

I recently heard from the daughter of my dad's cousin (Bennie Gene Baker) that Orin was killed by lightening at the age of 19 and was buried in the Heath cemetery. I almost made him a memorial but decided to wait until I have some concrete proof. I was going to go talk to Bennie Gene Baker about Orin but he passed away the first part of the year.

I do appreciate that information, and may just go ahead and make a memorial for him. I have been trying to contact someone from the Heath cemetery association but I cant seem to get anyone to contact me regarding the burial list from that cemetery. Not sure what to do next.

Thanks again,

Edgar Cemetery
I saw where you put flowers on several memorials at Edgar Cemetery in Henry County, TN
I just finished taking the rest of the stones at that cemetery. Not all have markers that are listed on this web site. Thought you might want to see the photos not there earlier.

Julia fisher Elbert's Birthdate
On Wednesday, April 15, 2015 5:05 PM, Marshall Lott wrote:

Julia Fisher Elbert Lott was my great grandmother and her birthdate is correct. Eliza Catherine said in the 1940 census that she was born in Oct 1859. I don't know who gave the incorrect date on her tombstone but if you will look at the 1900 census you will see. She said she was 40 years old and was born in Oct 1859. This should straighten out the error.
Also if you will look at the 1870 census you will see that Julia f. Elbert was 12 years old and Eliza C. Elbert was 10 years old. Eliza's birth date is the one that needs correction.

I will send you a copy. Text me your address. My # is 325 669-3981. It will take me a little time to copy but I will get it to you.

Uncle Dale passed away March 29, 2012. I have a link below that has an article about him.

RE: Winfred

I was looking on my records and I show Samuel Tipton Minor's parents as Matilda Boyd and Rufus Minor. Is this incorrect.

RE: Winfred
Yes I am related to Dale Walton. He is my uncle. (Daddy's brother) My daddy was Wayland Boyce Walton. When daddy passed away I became interested in searching out the family. Thank you for the information you sent in the correspondence. It's been a while since I have had time to do very much research but I would be glad to share anything I have that you might be looking for. Anything you have would be greatly appreciated. I have a copy of a book that Uncle Dale put together for the family. Would you like a copy? Marta Hanks

Flowers for memorials
Hi Donna,

I've noticed you are adding such beautiful flowers to the memorials at Lone Mountain Cemetery in Carson City, NV. Can I find out from you where you are finding these?
