Annie M. Cheeks and Eddie Fields
Hello J. I just wanted to let you know that neither Annie M. Cheeks nor Eddie Fields are actually buried in the cemetery at Sharon Methodist Church. There is a second cemetery in Sharon right around the corner from the church (I don't know the name yet) and that's where their headstones are.

John A Baldwin/John Augustus Baldwin
I went back to Sharon today and only found one John Baldwin. He has a flat stone and is on one side of a bigger Baldwin with sister, mother, and father. Mother and father have pictures and I added Mary. She also has a flat stone. I think you can delete John Augustus Baldwin. Did not find another John so I think they are the same.

Garret Kremer-Wright
Hubert J. Magruder
Hi! My name is Garret B. Kremer-Wright and I work as the archivist for the Orange County Regional History Center in Orlando, Florida. We have recently received several photographs and other papers relating to this family. They are currently being processed. In going through some of the photographs, several say "Beall". Do you know what her full name is? Thank you.

John Baldwin at Sharon Cemetery
I have found two John Baldwins, not Baldwine. One died 09-19-1849 and one was born 11-07-?? and died 09-19-1849. The first one's middle name is John Augusta. I found no Baldwine. Let me know and I can add them and/or post the pictures.

Philip Hudson
Persons family in Auburn, Alabama
Hello J.
I am Philip Hudson (48192248)
I am definitely descended from Sarah Elizabeth Hudson Persons (29213078) buried in Pine Hill Cemetery, Auburn, Alabama. I am trying to connect all the Persons in this cemetery. You manage some of these memorials. I do not want any management transfers.

I am trying to fit Barnett Persons (8994255) into the family. The gravestone pictures are hard to read. I have tried every enhancement program I have and find very little. It looks as if this is the grave of an infant. From the photos, it is in the Persons family lot.

I can read:
In memory of
Infant son ??
??? ?? Persons
Born Oct ?? 1881
Died Dec ?? 1882

Perhaps this was an infant child of Dr. Remus Charles Persons (7842169) and Susan Frances Barnett Persons (29213088). They have two other infant children buried in the Persons family lot. Perhaps there is not enough evidence to connect Barnett Persons to his parents. There is enough evidenced to connect Remus to Susan. I have Remus tentatively connected to his parents:
Nicholas Williams Persons (29213041), and
Ann Eliza Stanford Persons (29212880)
in my FTM files. I will do more research before I request this relationship on Findagrave. This suggests my kinship through Sarah Elizabeth Hudson Persons to the above mentioned Persons. I will make tentative connections to my FTM file. At this time I don't suggest any connections be added to Findagrave except connecting
Dr Remus Charles (7842169) and
Susan Frances Barnett Persons Find A Grave Memorial# 29213088.
Since you manage the memorial for Remus Persons will you please make that connection?

Highland Games Got to Me
Hello J! My name is Tiffany Cloud-Mills. My grandmother Dorothy Cloud-Kennedy was the daughter of Bert Kennedy. I am unsure as to which full name Bert pertains to. I would like to find out more information as to family lineage is. I saw the Kennedy Clan at the Highland games in Atlanta and wanted to find more information. My grandfather was Bobby Cloud. I traced his family to Robert Cloude, who was allegedly a McCleod and a survivor of small pox in Scotland. He left Scotland, moved to England, dropped the Mc and spelled his last name Cloude. I am trying to find my heritage as I feel it is of the utmost importance to teach my children where their people are from.

RE: Andrew Magruder
You are welcome. This was my first Find-
A-Grave location. Very spiritual. The Magruder grave was in a very peaceful location near an oak tree. It was a lovely day.
