I have been researching family since 1983.This doesn't mean I am an expert but have hopefully learned something along the way. One thing I feel significant, is to research all the females and do about 2-3 generations on each sibling of your family(from your direct line) You may also find more relatives this way, as families move together(or did earlier in time)|
I love Find A Grave, I have found so many persons full birth and death dates.
Also it is a wonderful place that you can "visit" cemeteries and grave-sites you might not be able to visit in person.
Family members can be linked together and helps keep the memories alive and ongoing.

you entered a record for Henry Mays and a Jake Mays they are one of the same. There is a marker for Henry and at the foot the "Jake" marker.

You recently requested a grave photo at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis. This cemetery is quite large and without a plot location it is near impossible to just stumble upon a requested grave.
I am happy to try to fulfill your request though if you will contact the office and ask for the plot location.
Just let me know, or post the plot on the memorial and I will try to fulfill it in the near future
The office can be reached at (901) 767-8930

Thanks for moving him. No he does not have a marker yet. The Cemetery Association will probably purchase him one. If you will request a photo you can see it when we do.

Thanx Rose, for the date error catch. Evidently the Obit is a bit in error. I'll go with the engraved marker when there is doubt about dates. Corrected to agree with the marker.
Thanx again and have a great day.

Although your Frank Archibald Wiggins [born 22 Sep 1907 died 19 Jul 1935, son of Richard B Wiggins and Florence E Stephens] died in Durham it is not likely that he is buried in Beechwood Cemetery which was for African American burials at that time.

Sorry, I have no Wiggins in my tree. Thanks for asking

Thanks Rose for pointing out my typo. Upon re-reading it, I found another one and took care of that too!

Thanks so very much for the note; I've been working on my paternal ancestors all day, since I saw your note. My father's aunt, Lucy Jane Warters, was named after my great grandfather's aunt Lucy Jane Joyner, who, with her husband, Moses, raised him on their tobacco farm and willed it to him. We have pictures of the store he owned and receipts for sales of both tobacco and cigars. My sisters went with my father in the 1980's to see Georgia and the Carolina's, where my father's family had lived for many generations. I didn't go with them (have always regretted it), due to my migraines. At the time, I was worried going anywhere as I had an average of at least one migraine per week. My sisters also brought back many balls fired from the guns used during the War Between the States. My dad used to go out into his backyard and dig them up as a boy in Georgia or when he was visiting in North Carolina. Thanks for submitting the edit. I've sent the person who cares for those memorials an email and am amending my memorial about her parents.
With All Sincerity, Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, Oregon
