Chalmer Sorrell
The issue is that the Bath County 1910 Census for the family group of “John Sarell” and “Lottie Sarell” has enumerated a “Chalmery Sarell” age six when actually Chalmer Sorrell was deceased before this census was taken 4 May 1910. It should be noted that in this census it was stated five children were born and four still alive. Also, according to the census, at age six Chalmer Sorrell would have been born about 1904.
John David Sorrell and Charlotte Belle “Lotte” Terrell are my great grandparents; Chalmer Sorrell is therefore my great uncle.
Chalmer Sorrell died as an infant. His cause of death was from a concussion. He was pulled off the bed and as he fell his head struck a hard object, probably the floor. A family photograph exists that shows Charlotte Terrell Sorrell, John David Sorrell, James Lee Sorrell, Sr., Orville David Sorrell and Chalmer Sorrell. The image of Chalmer Sorrell in the photograph is in the form of a large hand painted portrait and shows an infant about three months of age. The presence of this portrait indicates that Chalmer Sorrell is deceased at the time this photograph was taken. Orville David Sorrell is shown in Charlotte’s lap as an infant about two months of age. Orville was born 15 April 1905 which dates this photograph to about July 1905. Sitting in John David Sorrell’s lap is James Lee Sorrell, Sr. as a child of about six years of age. James was born 2 October 1899 which again dates this photograph to about 1905.
My conclusion is that: (1) Chalmer Sorrell did die as an infant as told to me in 1979 by my grandfather James Lee Sorrell, Sr.; (2) and Chalmer Sorrell was born in 1904; (3) and Chalmer Sorrell died before July 1905.

There is no guarantee that a person enumerated in a census is actually alive at the time of the enumeration.

Ann, the portrait mentioned above will eventually be added to my Ancestry.com family tree.

In my last message to you I mentioned "Menifee County Census". That is an error. It was "Bath County Census". I also noticed I didn't answer your question accurately. I'll send a better answer soon.

In one of the last talks I had with my grandfather he talked about the accident. Yes, Chalmer Sorrell died as a baby. He died accidentally during child play with my grandfather. I'll never forget the sadness in granpa's eyes and voice when he said "I killed him". This event has been separately confirmed by other members of the family. As for Chalmer's entry in the 1910 Menifee County Census, I guess Lotte couldn't let go.

Memorial number 117748501 Jonas Rigg
Hello,

I have been researching my family history for a while and I see that you have posted information about my great grandfather Jonas Rigg. I was wondering if you are related to the Rigg family? If not, I was wondering if it would be too much to ask if his memorial could be transferred to me for management and care? I would really appreciate it if this could take place. I appreciate all of your work and dedication in helping ancestors find the final resting places of their family members. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

I am wondering if Mary Ann Rigg Hoffman or her husband Jacob Hoffman Find A Grave Memorial# 25519809 is related to you? They are part of my family. If they are not would you be willing to transfer their memorials to me so I can maintain and update them.

One other question since you have stone pictures I take it you are from around Putnam County, I am wondering if there are any little kids stones around their stone even if they can't be read?
