|Bio and Links|
I've been researching my family history for over thirty years, inspired by the stories and tidbits that my Grandmother could relate for hours on end. I was especially happy to be able to verify most of her stories in the written and published records. I have also done research on my wife's lines and was amazed to find that my 15-Greats Grandfather and her 16-Greats Grandfather were one in the same which makes us 16th Cousins, once removed.|
I will be happy to transfer a memorial I manage, subject to the guidelines of Find-A-Grave.

|Richard Parker||RE: Capt S. Festorazzi|
I have added the folowing information to Festorazzi's bio.
Source For Burial:
MAGONLIA CEMETERY 1828-1971, compiled by Helen A. Thompson, published by the Polyanthos, Inc., 811 Orleans Street, New Orealns, Louisiana 70116, 1974, page: 278.
A collection of records from the gravestones of one of the oldest cemeteries in Mobile, Alabama, including the Confederate Rest, dating from 1828-1971.
Lot of United Confederate Veterans:
There is a monument in the center of this Lot (Confederate Rest) with many names of Confederate Veterans. The names are very worn and hard to read. "I did my best." -- Helen A. Thompson, 1971.
Capt. S. Festorazzi's name was just one among the many names inscribed on this monumnet. His name appears on page: 278 of the MAGONLIA CEMETERY BOOK 1828-1971.
Please remember this was recorded in 1971 and Helen stated the names were difficut to read. It is now 40 years later and the inscriptions are probably impossible to read.
Hope this helps. I did assmue that the names of those on the monument are buried in this cemetery. I could not find any information that stated otherwise.
|Amelia Walley||RE: Cahall & Simmons photos|
Thank you anyway!

My grandfather was married 3 times.
1) Francis Augusta Bonifay
2) Elma Thames Lind
3) Mary Alice McCaffery
My great aunt Peggy lived in California and married twice.
1) Carl Seager
2) ? Burkhart
Both my grandfather and my great aunt Peggy were divorced and not remarried at the time of their deaths. Therefore, they were buried in the plot that their parents had bought when Claude was killed.
Also buried in this plot at Magnolia Cemetery is a stillborn grandchild of Herman D. Constantine Jr.

|Brian Cox||RE: John Wesley Harmon|
Thanks a ton. My grandmother, who just passed away on Jan 17, was Frances Eugenia Harmon who was John G's daughter.
|Michael Singleton||Dorothy Drury|
Thanks for the transfer.
|Brian Cox||John Wesley Harmon|
May I ask how you linked John Wesley Harmon to John G Harmon, both from MS. John G. was my Great Grandfather. I have several good pictures of him, but I am having trouble making the jump to John Wesley Harmon.
The edits you requested for Henry Bruff and Kelley Jenkins have been processed. Sorry took so long! Thanks for all you do at find-a-grave.
