Note: Information about Jacob and Mary Stauffer Varnes and some of their descendants has been taken from the following family history:
THE GENEALOGY OF THE JACOB LEIGHTY FAMILY OF FAYETTE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA by Floyd H. Leighty, Sr., Jan. 1980.
Special thanks to Julie Oliver for recording tombstone information at Bethel Christian Church, which has been used in some of the memorials.
The question of initials in proper names has recently come up. I am trying to follow the FAG guidelines of using a period after a middle initial: "Concerning punctuation in proper names, always use normal English rules, such as always use a period after a Middle Initial."

You are welcome. I will send you links to his parents' memorials, William Green and Anna Griffin. I have a picture of them that I posted to their memorials. They were my 3X great grandparents.

When we are busy or embroiled in a project, we sometimes "see" things as we want to see them. :) No problem! Glad it got figured out! Regards, BjJ

|BjJ||RE: Viola Herrin|
Thanks for getting back to me. Ok, the problem is very simple. You sent me an edit for her birth state as Illinois, Lawrence County. And you are right, there is no Black Rock in Illinois....teehee. :) I changed the birth state to Arkansas, and then all was well!

You sent me edits on Viola #29420565. I found her obituary and it stated she was born in Black Rock, Arkansas. You sent me a birthplace of Lawrence County, IL. Before I accept the Edit, would you please check to make sure you are correct and the obit is wrong? Thanks.

I am the maternal great-grandson of John LaPointe #109089514. His full name was Joseph John LaPointe. He married Olive Elizabeth Burns, daughter of Ignatius William Burns #90916177 and Jane Wright Burns Burns #90903578. He did not marry Olive E Burnett #116225995, as another contributor entered. (That error is being corrected.) He did not have a daughter named Phyllis LaPointe Mears. He only had one daughter who lived, who was my grandmother, Gertrude LaPointe. Will you please make a correction in your entry by deleting the information about Phyllis.

The other Find-A-Grave contributor has updated her entry for Alice Roberts Law to include the date of death you had listed for her in your entry. Her grave entry is now connected to those of her parents.
Thank you so much for contributions to Find-A-Grave. They are very much appreciated.

|Farm Girl from MO.||Thanks for doing the edits I have sent.|
Thanks for accepting all the edits I have sent you recently. I really appreciate it. Only had one contributor decline to do them. Not sure why and the contributors e-mail address apparently isn't working. At least the vast majority of my edits have been approved. Again thanks for everything you have done. Have a nice evening, Farm Girl from MO.
