John Gately
You requested a photo for John Gately. If his remains are with a person named Ursula then I have found him and I will post the picture on his memorial. Please advise.

Washington monument
If I am not mistaken, the picture of the 3 tall momuments that I took and placed on the cemetery page had the name "Washington" on the tallest. I took this picture back in August of 1986 when I took my mother up there. That is why I believed her when she said the name of the cemetery was Old Washington Cemetery. The cemetery had just been mowed with a brushhog and a lot of the stones were damaged.

washington Cemetary also known as Howard Cemetery
I am the person who listed this cemetery. My mother always told me that it was Washington Cemetery, and since the county line was not marked on this road, I thought it was in Grayson County. I could not find anyone to verify what county. That is why I listed it in Grayson County. Since then I have learned that it is in Cooke County and is called Howard Cemetery. There are some Washingtons buried in this cemetery so that made sense to me since the tombstones are fairly large and there are several of them.And someone did say that it had been called Washington Cemetery. My mother's father was buried there in 1916 and she remembers the cemetery as Washington Cemetery. She is dead now so I can't question her.

hello again and transfer request
Dear Dusty,

(I sent you a private e-mail w/ this request, Dusty, but for some reason my e-mail isn't working. If you don't want to leave it here, feel free to delete it after it's read. Sorry for the long public note. Here is what I was trying to send you...)

I spoke with you last October and discovered that we are cousins. I've done quite a bit of work on my family tree since then and I've also been going through Sequatchie and Bledsoe Counties trying to photograph all the graves in our family graveyards. Many of the graves have been added to FindaGrave, but not photographed. Hopefully you'll find some new pictures the next time you're looking for relatives in those areas. :)

Anyway, I had a few grandparents I was wondering if you would consider transferring to my care. Here are the names:

50304233 Maggie Sutherland

50304282 Will Sutherland

50237291 James T. Sutherland

50237241 Mary Keedy

These are direct grandparents of mine. I think beyond Mary (her parents), they are actually your grandparents as well if I recall correctly. I do not want to ask you to transfer your own grandparents. :) But I'd love to have mind if you're willing.

I hope you're still doing well and enjoying the research! Let me know if I can do anything for you here. I have been trying to go to the cemeteries as much as I can to get photos, verify information, etc. I am also gathering family history information if you'd be interested in any of that. I can let you know if I find anything really great on the Keedy family. Currently I'm trying to figure out exactly how we're related to the Maryland Keedys... A challenge at best. There is a lot of information out there, but it's a lot to sort through.

Have a great day!

Hugh Edwards
Hugh Edwards was my Grandma, Cora Edwards Dallas' first cousin. Their fathers, Robert Neal and Joseph Bonaparte were brothers.

I would like to have this site transferred to me, if you are not a family member. I have more information I would like to add to his site.

Thank you.

Waters family
Your name came up while working on my Clark family tree. The Waters line, I found a few things I questioned. Then I discovered you had photo request for photos in the county I live in. I have photographed half of the cemetery at Williams Junction in Perry County, Arkansas. So I guess I need to finish it.
My father was born in Sadler, Grayson Co. Tx. I have a photo of the house he was born in. My Great grandmother Cartwright lived there until she died in 1952.

RE: Forbis
Thanks for "fixing" them. No, I'm not related. I'm the record keeper for the Virginia Point Cemetery in Fannin County, Texas. Because this is a small cemetery and everyone is related somehow, I research them to see how and try to link them. I also get requests from family members and I attempt to help them.

This helps with our genealogy and history. We have many unmarked and unknown graves. If I can prove who they aren't then it narrows down who they are. For example we were SURE that we had a burial here. I found that this woman had remarried and was buried in Oklahoma. NOW if I hadn't found her burial we would have kept her in our cemetery because that's what everyone had thought they remembered. Honestly, I just got lucky. I happened to find the information through one of the children. The woman that told me was elderly and was relying on her childhood memories.

Thanks Again
