I was born in Memphis, TN and have lived here my entire life. I've been widowed since 1995 and my only daughter, Jamie, died August 2013. I'm not as active on this site as I was a few years ago and don't often check my email. If you request to have a memorial transferred and I've not checked my email to receive the notice, please contact the administrator of this site to have the memorial transferred.
Knoblock vs Knobloch Did you realize that except for JW and wife- it seems that the name on tombs is spelled Knobloch? (See 1989 St Joseph Book- index of names.) I was also spelling all entries as Knoblock. Jane-
RE: Mary Lillian Wilson I am so very sorry if you thought that you had upset me as I am so very grateful to you for taking a photo of my birth Grandmothers headstone I cannot tell you how interested I was to see the picture. I was just curious to know whether somebody had asked you to take a photo but they obviously have not this could have possibly have led to some more research. I am now wondering how it was possible that the family could afford the headstone.
I am really most grateful to you for taking the photo it has meant so very much to me to see it. If you ever come accross my birth Grandfathers grave in Memphis I would really appreciate it if you could contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org My Grandfathers details are that he was called Charles Allen Wilson he could have also been called Charlie and that he was born in 1899 in Alabama.
Mary Lillian Wilson I have been for a very long time tracing my American roots. Mary Lillian Wilson nee Hollingsworth is my birth Grandmother. It was very interesting to see a picture of her headstone as it has taken me a very long time to discover just when she died. My research is made that much more difficult by me living in England. I am very curious to know whether you have placed a picture of her headstone for public viewing for a reason or whether you have acted on a request from somebody if so could you tell me who it was. Mary lillian Wilson died very young she was not quite 40 she left behind 3 children one of them being my birth Father, Robert Allen Wilson who died in Virginia in 1989 she had two daughters who are also deceased both dying in Arizona. Mary's husband was Charles Allen Wilson I cannot find as yet any death date for him although I am quite sure he would have died in Memphis, Tennessee he does not show up at all at Forest Hill Cemetry. I am curious to know how Mary Lillian Wilson ended up with a headstone as I always got the impression that the family were very poor although on the 1930 census it gives Charles's occupation as a locomotive engineer. I am almost certain that 2 of Charles and Mary's 3 children were placed in an orphanage when Mary died the 2 youngest Evelyn and my birth Father Robert. Evelyn would have been 12 and Robert would have been 10 when their Mother died the oldest child Lillian would have been 24 I believe she was already married.
I would be really grateful if you could tell me whether you have had any interest with Mary Lillian Wilson's grave as I am currently endeavouring to find out just why she died so very young also trying to find out why her 2 youngest children were placed in an orphanage and just where the orphanage was in Memphis also I am trying to find out what happened to Charles Wilson. I do know that in 1930 the family were living in Poplar Avenue (Street)If you can tell me anything my Email address is email@example.com
