RE: Maryann Elizabeth
Cecil, thank you so much for the reply and the suggestion that I ask for a transfer of Maryann Elizabeth Lang McWhorter's memorial. I will do that and thank you again.

Marshall J. Strother
Hello, Cecil
Marshall Jeremiah Strother passed away this week, Nov.4, 2014. He and your dad were close friends in college at SH, and throughout life.

I'd like to get this info to your dad. I don't know what his circumstances are now, but am asking you to let him know about Marshall's passing. Marshall's wife, Frances, died in Aug 2013.

The memorial service will be at First Baptist, Rosenberg TX at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 10. There will be a meal served at 12:00 p.m. in the church fellowship room.

His ashes, and that of his wife, will be placed in their plot at Oakwood Cemetery in Huntsville.

Marshall Strother was a graduate of SH, Baylor, and Southwestern Seminary. He was a Baptist minister, in Texas, Montana, and Colorado.

My greetings to your dad and mother. We knew each other back in SH days. Virginia Owen

Sandria Dobbin
Ashley M. Chreene grave
Mr Vaden, My name is Sandria Dobbin and I am having several stones made for family members in Farley Chapel Cemetery. I know where Deborah Haley, Jacklan McClure and Thomas Everett, Jr. stones belong next to Pauline Williams.

This is my problem right now. I'm looking for the grave of Ashley M. Chreene (d.May 21, 1986)

Could you provide the location for the setting of a stone for Ashley M. Chreene?

Mike at Houston County Monuments will be going there soon to set the 4 stones and I would be so appreciative if you could help us.

Sincere Thanks,
Sandria Dobbin

Thank you very much for the fast reponse to updates and the credit. Most unexpected. His mother is a great aunt and I like to see her children again reconnect to her and her husband.

RE: Thank you
Good idea... I'll start being careful on SACs I send you from now on! Seriously, though, you've got the right perspective even if some of those you've helped are jerks.

Have a great day!

Thank you

You continue to amaze me with all the memorials & photos you add and how fast you turn around updates. And now the COOL WAY you gave credit for the links! I am impressed by the way you did it, though it's certainly unnecessary (and a little embarrassing) when YOU are the one who's doing so much for me and hundreds of other researchers.

I do miss our correspondence since SACs became "auto". Hope things are great with you!

Hi Cecil
I was wondering if you have a picture of the full stone for James Lewis Baxter Find A Grave 8373942? If you do could you place that on James Lewis Baxter's Memorial please?

Thanks so much. Keep up the awesome work. Have a blessed week.

It isn't really necessary to publicly thank me for the relationship links and full names. I enjoy linking families back together again.
