Warene Y. Green
You have posted a photo to the memorial for Waurene and her husband Charlie. Is this a photo of the two of them? I believe that my niece has a photo of Jerold Green, their son as best man at her mother's wedding. We are trying to determine for sure that it is he or some other person. Of course all involved are deceased now and no on (surprise) wrote the names on the reverse. Hope you can help.

Elizabeth "Betty" Dainwood Steward - buried in Oklahoma City

You posted a nice image of Betty's 1978 newspaper obituary with her Find a Grave memorial #50189588. Is she a relative? She was the daughter of my great-great-aunt, and I'd love to fill in the blanks on the Dainwood-Steward side of the family. Please write me directly if you're able to share data.

Your caption with the obituary is:

"Elizabeth Dainwood Steward was the second wife of John Howard Steward of Bald Knob, White Co., AR."

Allanah Ticer
Melanie, We haven't been in touch in years. I have information on Allanah Ticer's maiden name and where the marriage record for Samuel and Allanah is located. Also, learned that Allanah is Samuel's second wife. My private email is: Look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Melanie
I want to tell you that you've done well with all your memorials and grave photos in and around Houston County, especially Rehobeth Cemetery. Have you ever come across a marker for Jennie Lemaster of Madrid who died Nov 20, 1953? Her obit states she is buried at Rehobeth. Thanks for your time.

Hugh Curlin Atkins
My name is Robin Atkins. I started working on my family tree as a retirement project starting with my father Hugh Thurman Atkins. I see your name attached to a lot of Atkins records so I'm hoping you can shed some light on a mystery that has me stumped. I and a cousin both have a picture labeled as Uncle Hugh Curlin Atkins, however, I cannot find a trace of him until he shows up as a 17 year old "nephew" in the home of John Richard Atkins in the 1900 Census. There are details of his adult life & death but nothing about who his parents are or where he was born. He goes by a number of nick names but I can't find a thing. Any information you may have or suggestions where to look next would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I am researching the H.L. Lee and George Lee line. Do you have more information on this?

I am new to this and this is as far as I have gotten.

Old Rehobeth Cemetery - Hughes
Hi Melanie...

I notice that the Old Rehobeth cemetery in Houston County, AL is on private land. I am visiting family in the area in the first week of October and would love to visit it if possible.

Can you help me with that? Who is the family that currently owns the land it's on? Would they be ok with someone taking a look?

Thank you in advance for any assistance you could give. I am hoping the William and Mary Hughes family you have listed are my husband's ancestors.

John Newton McCurdy Whitfield GA
Hello, Melanie! Another Melanie here -- a descendant of John Newton McCurdy. I'm curious. I have twice visited the graves of my John Newton McCurdy, his second wife Rebecca Casteel, his parents Stephen McCurdy & Delilah Wright, as well as several of his children by Rebecca Casteel.

These graves are not in Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Cohutta -- as you have listed here. They are buried in the McCurdy Family Burial Ground on private land, owned at one time by Charlie Hooker and his family. His daughter now owns that land.

They are in Whitfield County, GA -- on Maddox Chapel Road NE in Dalton, GA.

I'm really confused by the entry here in Find A Grave and would love to chat with you about these graves.

I have photos of the gravestones. We were just there again two years ago with a number of the McCurdy clan who live there and care for the Burial Ground.

In fact, Charlie Hooker and his wife have passed away since my first visit to the burial ground, and they have established a family cemetery that links to the McCurdy Burial Ground.

Please contact me, if you would be so kind. I'm curious about this!!!!

God Bless!

Marcus D. Lafayette Spriggs
Hi Melanie
Thank you so much for the job you do. I know it takes lots of time. Have a question regarding this memorial. There is a lovely picture on this you know who is in the picture? Marcus Spriggs mother is not listed and she is Louisa McCoy Spriggs 1796-1848. My husband is a direct descendant of the McCoy line. Marcus's grandfather was David McCoy 1742-1822 from Edinburgh, Scotland and his grandmother was Susan Cox McCoy 1776-1847.
Thank you in advance for your help!

You entered several memorials buried in Old Rehobeth Cemetery, Houston Co, AL. Can you give me a more exact location for the cemetery. I live in Rehobeth and would like to take pictures there, but I cant locate the cemetery. I went to the town hall and they didn't know either. I am Ronda, at
