|SheliaRN||Mary Byrd Photo Request|
Hi, I have added 4 photos of this grave for you. They're a bit hard to read, so I added a caption for each photo stating what the words are on that photo. I also got close ups of the dates and the phrase at the bottom. Let me know if I can do anything else for you.

I went ahead and linked Barbara Chapman to Adeline as the dates appear correct but also requested a photo of Adeline's marker - just in case she's not the right one. Thanks for the possible link.
And thank you for your kind words about the work on the hospital cemetery.
|William McIntyre Danner||RE: Thank You - Wheelis|
No marie, Thank YOU. If you ever find where it was written with an er instead of an is or an ess, please remember me because my only hope is to be correct and I may be the one who needs correcting. Remaining open minded on these kinds of things is the best policy in my opinion.
|William McIntyre Danner||RE: Thank You|
Hey marie. I checked the early records of Elizabeth's father and grandfather and have noted that the surname was spelled in Nash County, NC, on the 1820 census, and on US International Marriage documents (from Ancestry) Wheless, and Wheeles. The latest I have seen her surname spelled Wheelis was on the Death Certificate for her son, George Washington Durley and that lists his mother with the surname spelling of Wheelis. Except for your addition of her Find A Grave Memorial I have never seen the name spelled Wheeler. We here in the Augusta GA area have a Wheeler Road and a Wheeless Road so I know that the two names are not synonymous. Whichever way you choose to spell her name, and for whatever reason is up to you, but from where I sit it will always be Wheelis. The spelling could have changed down through the decades, but for that time frame of her birth, I believe her name was spelled Wheelis. Thanks for considering my way of thinking.
|William McIntyre Danner||Thank You|
Thank You, marie, for giving general permission on your profile to use any of your photos. I have just added Henry Durley and Elizabeth Wheelis Durley's headstones to my ancestry family tree which contains Danners, Durleys, Ings, et al from West Tennessee and Mississippi. I have also given you photo credit by your Find A Grave Member name and number, which is my habit to give proper credit where credit is due.
|A. Muse||RE: Walter Diggs|
Handsome little fellow that Walter! Thank you so much for creating a memorial for him, by the way. I have seen that Diggs family photo all my life and just last week did it finally sink-in how we were related. Walter's mother was a first cousin to my great-grandmother. Thank you again!

|Karla Gainey||Darthula - My GGGrandmother|
Sorry, but I can't really take all the credit. The daughter of one of my husband's co-workers is attending Old Miss and offered to go out to Yellow Leaf and take pictures for me. Darthula was actually on my wish list, and I noticed it was also on the "photo request" page for Yellow Leaf.
Darthula was my great-great-grandmother, so if she is in your family tree, we are related. My lineage is from Darthula through her daughter/my grandmother Willie Ethel Billingsley Webb, through her daughter/my mother Margaret Enola Webb Gigerich.
|Sue Lee Johnson||Oswalts|
Marie, would you like for me to transfer John Thomas Oswalt, Martha Anna Williams Oswalt and Adolphus Oswalt to you?
|Sue Lee Johnson||Oswalt|
Thank you for the additional information!
