#38577942 Alice Louise (Brink) Oakes
I don't control Alice's memorial page #38577942 but do control her husband's memorial page #7741636 so I added some further info to his page pertaining to his wife, Alice. I could not find any info confirming Alice was married to a Mr. HOLT prior to her marriage to Verdane Oakes in 1958. If you have a copy of her marriage certificate to this Mr. Holt does it show her parents as Edward Brink & Rachel (Snider) Brink?
If there's any info you'd like me to add to Verdane's page please let me know.
Have a wonderful weekend!

RE: 96565367 Elmer Ellsworth Ackley
Thank you for your message. It's been "fun" splitting one person into two, but I think they're straight now. While I was at it, I opened the grave stone photo in my photo editing program, increasing contrast, lighting it up a bit, increased the dpi -- just about everything except for mowing the lawn. Too bad the grass blocks some of the inscription. Still much is illegible, but I've put them on the site for you to use as you wish.

I haven't worked on Ackleys in ages and seem to have lost the link to Allen Ackley's web site. Do you happen to have it? I haven't corresponded with him in a long time.

Thanks again for sorting out the Elmers.

RE: 96565367 Elmer Ellsworth Ackley
Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, I am unable to read the tombstone to compare the dates, but that there is more than one Elmer Ellsworth Ackley makes sense to me. "My" Elmer was one of 12 siblings, and back then, families were so large they were bound to run out of original names.

96565367 Elmer Ellsworth Ackley
Good morning. If possible, I would like to know your source for Elmer's father. I have a different father for Elmer and am afraid I may be incorrect. I have Elmer as the youngest of 12 children fathered by: James Lawrence Ackley (Find A Grave # 254740).

My source was: (Frye, Susan GARDNER., "Gardner-Fry[e] and Allied Families." (Ackley) ( ) Which I accessed in 2008 and which may not have been accurate.

I have Elmer's mother as the former Caroline GOULD, for whom I have no additional information.

Your assistance is most appreciated.

RE: 112509120
After I sent that message I thought I should have asked you which surname you were researching. My sister-in-law married a descendant of the Bowens that are buried in McKinney and Clio cemeteries. Good luck in your research.

RE: 112509120
Research indicates Gavada Barrett to be the daughter of John & Minnie (Bowen) Barrett. I found them living in Barry County in the 1920 census and then in Newton County in the 1930 census, so it makes sense. I've added info and a link to her death certificate as well as linking her parents.

Mary Jane Fare
I have Mary Jane in my genealogy. George and Trevetta are my Great Grand Parents. Do you know anything of George and Mary's son Clyde? If Mary had been my Great Grand Mother i would have put her first. Hope i didn't upset you in my first message. I had just had neck surgery and wasn't doing very well. My new email

RE: Charley Luther Bowen
I did not find any memorial for the Charley Luther Bowen on Find a Grave. I do not recall being related to this person. However, the name is familiar doing geneology of my ancestors back to the Revolutionary War days. The name originates from the United Kingdom. Aloha David.
