Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Firefighter. Served four years with the U S Navy, 12 years with the Air National Guard.
I like finding old cemeteries. Small cemeteries I take pictures of all marked graves.
Most of the memorials I have posted are not related to me. If you see a family member, let me know and I will transfer them to you.
Anyone may use the pictures I take for there family tree.

Found One More Followup
Robert, I also found this marriage listing for Van Gilder Bannister. He apparently married Tiney Coiner in 1902. There seems to be some miscopying in the record as she is listed as Jiney Webster. However, if you look at the handwriting it could also be a "T" instead of a "J." The Webster name is apparently because both she and Van are listed as widowed when they married in 1902. Webster must be her first married name. Why they went back to Coiner for her headstone, I have no idea unless it's because that was her maiden name. My grandmother's headstone (daughter of Van Gilder Bannister) is listed as "Bessie T. Bannister, w/o William C. Shaver." So it appears to me that some of the time they put the maiden name on the headstone. Anyway, you can see the marriage record for Tiney and Van here:
I hope this is all correct.

Information for Amelia Schlegel
Robert, I believe you have the wrong person listed as the mother for Amelia Tompkins Bannister Schlegel (#49275172). You have her mother as Tiney Banister. However, her mother was Mary McDaniel Miller Banister (#6244109). Amelia was my great aunt. Her sisters were Bessie T. Bannister Shaver (my grandmother) and Clara Bell Bannister Petitt (my other great aunt). Van Gilder Banister (her father) apparently had a second wife Tiney Coiner Banister, but she is not the mother of the three daughters. At least that is what I have found out from my research. If you know otherwise, please let me know. Thanks.

Andrew Jackson Withrow is a memorial that I put on Find A Grave 3 years before the one that you established. Yours should be removed. I would like it if your tombstone would be put on my memorial for him.

Very Sincerely;

Roland R. Wilkinson #46926691.
