Coma Honey Gulley
Hi Greg, I just got back on to Ancestry and found that someone has already put the picture of Coma Gulley on Ancestry. Are you related to the Gulley family? Sharon

Coma Honey Gulley
Hello Greg, I would like your permission to use Coma Honey Gulley's picture on my tree in Ancestry. My grandmother was Mahala Cisire "Kizzie" Gulley, 1885-1943. Please let me know, Thank you. Sharon

RE: Kinfolk
Back in your earlier correspondence to me, I meant to get into that, and when I responded again without addressing it, I could have kicked myself.
Yes indeed, we are 3rd cousins. I worked with Raymond Tucker (before he retired), and he would tell me such tales about George Henry and Belle Mira Tucker. Raymond is the son of Aubrey "Tobe" Tucker. There must have been a country side of Odoms and Tuckers around Zion Hill, and they married whoever was closest in age. Some got along like oil and water. He would say he and I should get married, and carry on the tradition. I said of what, misery? Please don't be offended by any of this, because I LOVE old family stories and photos, most of all. You and Bruce Odom have blessed us with GREAT photos. I never saw a photo of my grandmother (Sarah LaVenia Tucker Odom) when she was young until I went on that US Gen Web site. I didn't even know her first name was Sarah. I still haven't seen a photo of Charlie Odom as a young man. Aren't you glad you asked??? I am thrilled to touch base with another geneology nut from our family. Thanks ever so much for the pictures accompanying the Zion Hill graves! Take care, Karen Odom

Ouita Odom
Good morning Greg. I have corrected a big mistake on my end, and now I am handing the ball back off to you :] When I saw the memorial for Aunt Ouita in Bernice Cemetery, and not one for her husband, James Lester Odom, I created one for him. When you alerted me to the duplicate of Aunt Ouita's memorial at Sharon Baptist, I then saw the military memorial for James Lester Odom, her husband. With that, information in Aunt Ouita's obit, as well as her parents being interred at Sharon, I knew that was correct.
So, I deleted the memorial for her husband, James Lester Odom in the Bernice Cemetery, and moved everything to Sharon, where there is clearly a photo of his stone. So he and Aunt Ouita are reunited once again. Thanks to your eagle eye! Now it is up to you to get Henry Osborne to delete the memorial of Aunt Ouita Odom in the Bernice Cemetery. He created both, so it should not be a problem. I would ask, but he has not always been cooperative with me. Thanks for the heads up, and don't ever hesitate to contact me.
Your friend, Karen Odom

RE: Ouita Odom
Hello Greg,
I tend to agree with you that she is buried at Sharon; however, it will take some additional checking. Uncle Lester Odom's (husband) obit does not state where he is buried. Neither are listed in the US Gen Website Union or Claiborne Parish list under cemeteries. This will take some time to sort out, with probably a road trip when it gets cooler. I will be more than glad to assist you on anything, as you are an awesome contributor to Find A Grave. - Karen

RE: John R. Moore
It was my pleasure, I live only a few miles from this cemetery. Some of my kin are also interred there.

Violet Moore Van Sickle
Sorry, I just got to your other email, I don't know where Robert may be buried, I photographed every headstone I could find in that cemetery, some of them were really old and could not be read. Tonight I searched the Fayette county genealogy project to see if he was in anything they had and could not find him there. I did locate her parents and a brother on find a grave, found a 1930 census for her and Robert but no 1940 in USA, a census point to Canada for his name but ?? if that is the right one and nothing for her and the kids in 1940. Since he worked in the coal mines he may have been in one of the explosions. Sorry I couldn't help much...Good luck

RE: Geraldine Miller Photo, Rosedale
You're welcome. I must have been in "the Cross" section taking pictures a couple of weeks before her passing, so finding it again was simple. My deepest condolences.
