RE: Elmer Braden
I once exchanged genealogical info with a CATGRAY.
Are you the one?

James graves
Yep, still at it. I had to get a new PC w/new software (UGH!!!) and have not yet got photo capability worked out; so no photos for a while but still adding & helping. I ran across a unique surname I was entering and was suspicious of the spelling so I visited the grave. Name was misspelled in the book but I noted her marker said she is the daughter of the two James people I asked you about - they are buried by her so thought it might be one you were not aware of. Her married name is Leona L. (James) Guion. You helped so I thought maybe I could help you this time. Not yet, but I will keep trying. Hope you are well.

James graves Council Bluffs
Are Wilson James and wife Rachel James part of your James family you were researching? I ran across their graves in Walnut Hill today and thought of you. Paul

RE: Scottish graves
Thanks for such a quick response and the web info. I'm going to get started searching using this new site. According to there are over 1500 cemeteries in Scotland so I sure hope that this site will norrow down my search.
Thanks again for your help.

Cemeteries in Aberdeenshire
I am trying to locate gravesites for several relatives who lived and died in Scotland. shows where they are supposed to be buried but when I checked they are not listed at the cemetery.

When I search for Scotland it does not give me an option to narrow my search to the town or city. I was wondering if you could help me. Do you know how I could get a listing of cemeteries in Aberdeenshire? I would also be interested in their addresses so I can visit them when I visit Scotland in the near future.

I am also a findagrave contributor who loves genealogy. I am inactive at this time due to a knee problem.

I do appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks a million!

Thanks for the offer but I'm happy with the way it is. After all, you did the most work and I see from the stats here that you have made an enormous number of contributions.

Sorry we have no further information, what was posted came from a cemetery book we had from a genealogy society.

Josiah James
Josiah James was my great-great-grandfather and I am interested in what you wrote on his memorial about his life. Josiah's daughter Sarah Francis was my great-grandmother and she's buried in Hemphill County, Texas. It was my pleasure to link her memorial to those of her parents and siblings.

I saw your stuff on also, so I'm thinking you and I are related. I have never known much about the James family, probably because Sarah lived so far from the others. You can read a little of her story and see her picture on her memorial here or also on my Ancestry tree. I'd really appreciate any information you will share with me. You can reach me at Hope to hear from you!
