Hi, fonda!

In August, 2009, you posted a memorial for Cecil Browning, 1900-1976, which at my request you later (maybe last year or earlier this year) transferred to my management. Up until today I believed him to be the son of Ida T and Charlie C Browning, buried in Oakwood Cemetery, which I believe is also known as the Milan City Cem. I have (yesterday) received a fairly detailed tree for a portion of the Browning family. As I'm sure you have learned, many family trees and other histories contain errors, so I'm trying to backtrack and doublecheck. The history I have in hand is nicely bound and impressive-looking, but indicates no author or compiler, so I don't know any provenance.

What I'm beating my way around to is, I do not remember if I linked Cecil to parents and brother/sister, or if you already had them linked. Do you have any further info on this branch of the Brownings? I'm willing to claim the error, but if there is supporting evidence that Charlie and Ida are his parents, I don't want to break the link in error either. This history gives the children as 1) Benj. Hess (1903), 2) Ward Eli (1906), and 3) Eleanor Louise (1910). In addition, Charlie and Ida's wedding is given as Jan. 1903, further supporting other parenthood for Cecil, b. 1900.

I've just remembered your referring me previously to RickK for the last word on W.TN Brownings. I will contact him as well. Thank you for any light you can shed. I realize you may have simply walked the rows and posted the markers. Certainly nothing wrong with that: we all depend on gravers willing and able to compile records that way. I'm just trying to be thorough and diligent before I make a change. Hope this finds you well and prospering.

(Sorry bout sending you a blank.)

Her name on the tombstone is Aileen W Mathis and the dates are born Oct 8, 1885 and died Oct 12, 1978. There is a DAR plaque on the marker. Please make corrections. Thank you.

Oakwood/Milan Cemetery
I plan to visit this cemetery Thursday (4 Sept) to see the graves of my Wolstenholme family in plot 239. It there a sexton's office with a map of the cemetery? If not, how would I find plot 239? Thanks for your help.

Julia 11272521 I sent some info to you on July 17, 2014. Is there a reason you have not updated her site? Do you think what I sent was wrong or have you just not gotten it? I would like to know. Thanks Jan

Wright's Chapel transfers
Thank you so very much for the transfers. I will continue to try to find information to add to them. I truly appreciate all the work you and your son have done for the cemetery. My grandson is getting ready to work on his Eagle project and I have several cemeteries here that I plan to suggest to him for clean up and restoration. So many times the graves have sunk in and then then stones have fallen into the hole and been covered over. But at least they are still there to be found: many have been destroyed and that is so very very sad.

I would love to know what you find when you go back in the fall.

Mary Ann
