Jaily Fox Brandenburg
Jaily (unsure if the spelling is correct) was my paternal grandmother's maternal grandmother as well as my paternal grandfather's aunt (yes, my grandparents were cousins). From what Granny told me, Jaily had what they called "the bloody flux"(colon cancer). Granny said that Jaily suffered from it for at least five years, finally becoming bedridden and then passing on. Granny said that Jaily was one of the sweetest people and my granny loved her dearly. Granny and her sister Tina (prounounced Tiny) bought a headstone for Jaily in either the 1970s or 1980s. I have seen a picture of it but it's been several years now as my granny has since passed on. I've always wanted to visit the grave but am not familiar enough with the area to know if I could find the cemetery or not.

Thank you very much! I am the queen of typos, and I wanted to make sure it wasn't "Ewing." Appreciate it!

Hi, Gary! I wanted to double check with you before processing the edit for Frances' maiden name. Please let me know via response here what the name should be.

Thank you!

Mary Elizabeth Lee Brumbach
The Mary Elizabeth Lee Brumbach, who is buried at Christ Lutheran Cemetery and who was born in 1826 and died in 1898, is NOT the daughter of Josiah Lee and Hannah Griffith Boone as stated on the Find A Grave site. She is the daughter of Jeremiah Boone Lee and Mary Elizabeth Tea. Her step mother is Mary Penrose Lee, the second wife of Jeremiah B. Lee.

Cedar Hill requests
Hi Gary, regarding your two photo requests for Cedar Hill Cemetery, you need to call the cemetery and get their plot locations over the phone. After you do that and post the grave locations, then someone will get the photos. I've been successful several times at that cemetery doing that. (When I didn't have them posted, I didn't get photo requests fulfilled).
Their phone number is on their Find A Grave page.

RE: Dinsmore/Suman families
Hi Gary,
My sister-in-law's great-grandmother was Mary Ellen Suman--Dinsmore.
I'm in the process of updating my Rootsweb family tree database online with my latest information. I'll try to email you with the link when I upload it for you to see.
Nice to 'meet' you.

Dinsmore/Suman families
Hi Gary,
You may have noticed that I've been adding Dinsmore family members and linking them to your entries. This is my sister-in-law's family. Her grandfather was Alvin Barrott Dinsmore--Memorial# 145657532 (he has no marker, but his wife does).
Are you related?
