RE: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS 123605608 & 95792317
Larry, I spent some time today trying to find info on Joe Jones. I found hints that he is alive at age 90. I found an old address for him at 814 Gardiner St., Arlington, Texas, but nothing recent. There are so many "White Pages" sites that claim to give addresses and phone numbers for free. However, it always seems that before you get anything remotely worthwhile, you have to pay. What a ripoff! It would be easier if I had Joe's full name. Jones is such a common name. I also looked for a marriage record, hoping that it might give information on his name and date of birth. No luck with that. Good luck with your search.
Very best regards,
Donald J. Ward
Arlington, Texas

UPLICATE MEMORIALS 123605608 & 95792317
Larry, I have no problem transferring memorial # 95792317 to you, but I have a question. What would you do about the existence of duplicate memorial numbers? Since you didn't create either memorial, I don't believe Findagrave will let you delete either of them. Would it be better for you if I moved the headstone photos from 95792317 to 12605608 and deleted 95792317?
Best regards,
Don Ward

Hi ~ So sorry for the incorrect information. I had long ago changed my family group sheets to reflect the name Guest, but forgot to change it on Find A Grave. I am related to the Messick family. Thanks for sharing this information! Janet Ward

RE: Moses Guest, Sr.
Hello again,
First I have a bit of egg on my face that I need to wipe off. I misread the narrative portion of your memorial for Grampa Moses -- I thought it said that he was buried on his land in North Carolina. Oops. I'm glad that my gaffe has connected me with another family historian, though. I'm descended from Moses and Dorcas's son John Moses, who married Mary "Polly" Stroud in Warren, Tennessee. I've run into several challenges researching this line, and I would appreciate any insight or information you're willing to share.
Kind regards,

Moses Guest, Sr.
It appears we must be very distant cousins. Moses Guest, Sr. and Dorcas Anderson Guest are two of my fifth great-grandparents. I am beginning to think they relocated to Tennessee because I have a copy of an 1850 Federal Census listing a Moses Guest, age 83, born in North Carolina and Darcus Guest, age 78, birthplace Pennsylvania living with a Mary A. Messex, age 19, born in Tennessee, and a James Looney, age 14, also born in Tennessee. They are in District 7 of Grundy County, Tennessee. I speculate the teenagers living with them are their grandchildren.

I hope you find this helpful.

I removed the birth place recorded on the death certificate and posted the message you sent to his memorial.

Houston "Hugh" Looney

This is not a duplicate memorial. The birth and death dates for the 2 Houston Looneys buried in Michael Looney Cemetery are different as are their parents. These are cousins, but definitely not the same person. I check for duplicates thoroughly before adding a memorial.
