No problem. You do not even have to give me credit. I love finding these things for people in hopes that others will do it for me and my genealogy research.

RE: Earnest Harris at Cotton Gin
Ok, I finally got the 2 close-ups posted.
U mentioned him being 5 years old on the census, according to the tombstone he B/D the same year, 1885.
I chalked it to help bring out the inscription.
Never fear, I carry a jug of water so when I chalk one I can immediately rinse it off.
I used the word chalk for simplicity, actually my wife makes the markers out of starch.
= = = = =
He was hard to locate. I passed him up 2X before I located him, the third try was the charm. Although there is a plot listed for him, the rows intertwine so the only way to locate some people is to find others around them then move down the row.
= = = = =
Glad I could be of assistance, Later, James Coston

RE: Earnest Harris Cotton Gin Cemetery
Mary Ann,
Don't give up on me just yet.
I have a couple of close-ups so U can identify the marker, it's readable, problem is, I am on 14k dial-up and my connection is failing me. I have been trying for 1/2 hour and it keeps dropping me. It's very frustrating.
I will try again when there is less activity on the interned, the drawbacks of slow speed.
Yes, the marker at the tree is his, the over shot of the other markers are for reference in finding his marker "after" the tree is gone.
As to the others being Harris, the surname is "Wills", I used their locations to zero in on Earnest.
Later, James

RE: Mary Ann Tarkington
It's a stretch. I got all the info, just too lazy to put it all in. From Jesse Tarkington you go to Ellsberry, then James O. and then Edgar Tarkington who married Lydia Burch. Lydia's grandfather, Charles Burch, had a first cousin, Fuel Burch, who married Margaret Carmichael. Margaret's first cousin was Peter Carmichael, and Peter was Hoagy's great grandfather.
