Caleb Gates #79679394
Could this be the Caleb Gates you do not have a cemetery for? See #149778964. Just thought if this is the same person, you may want to combine the memorial that was added last year :-)

RE: family Bible
Hello, Just wanted to let you know that I found a copy of the page from the family Bible, along with lots of other info about James Soyars, on microfilm at the Library of Virginia. Excellent resource!

Henry B Follett
I'm a decendent of Henry thru my grandmother Laura Mae Follett. I see that Henry B died in Sacramento CA and would like to confirm that he is buried in Sacrament and not in Maine. Does anyone know why or what Henry was doing in California? Thank you. Wanda Tozier Wall

LYDIA OAKES ROBBINS-CASTOR
HI CHERI:

CHECK OUR THE MEMORIAL # 6645 3391 FOR LYDIA OAKES "CASTER" . THIS SHOWS SHE IS BURIED AT THE ODD FELLOWS CEMETERY AND DIED NOV. 21, 1941. WITH THE INFORMATION FOR HER DAUGHER, BERTHA ROBBINS WARD, AND BEING IN WASHINGTON, IT COULD BE THE RIGHT PERSON.

THIS MAY BE OUR SAME LYDIA BUT WITH A DIFFERENT SPELLING.

SEE WHAT YOU THINK AND LET ME KNOW.

HOPE YOUR ARE DOING WELL!!

BEST REGARDS, CHARLIE

family Bible
Hi Cheri,

My name is Robin Soyars Doucett. Pleasant Soyars was my third great grandfather. I noticed that you mentioned a family Bible that identified some birth/marriage dates. Do you have access that you could please make me a copy? Or do you know where I may get a copy of those records from the Bible?

Pleasant Soyars and his wife, Louisa Jane Gray, had a son named Henry Jackson Soyars. Henry and his wife, Nannie Sheila Wall, were the parents of Desmond Merriwell Soyars who was my paternal grandfather.

I am familiar with the Soyars cemetery off of the Horseshoe Rd and the Hyler/ Hylton Cemetery, but I don't know exactly where the Moore Soyars Cemetery is located.

I would appreciate any help you can give me, especially in regards to the family Bible. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks so much for your help!

Oakes in KY & TN
Greetings Cheri
First of all Thank You for sharing your hard work with other family historians. You're a good example to me as another Find A Grave contributor, to up my participation. I appreciate your efforts.

Do any of your Oakes wind up in Wayne or Russell counties KY and/or Jackson, Macon counties of TN. I have Oakes that marry into the family line of Spivey and Marcum and Dutton. My time frame is about 1775 in VA. -> 1840 TN/KY.

If any of this rings a bell or if you can point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.
Thanks for your time
