Any photos I have taken and placed on FindAGrave are free to use in your genealogy research and may be posted on any website, including ancestry.com. No need to ask permission or credit me. The same goes for biographical information I have entered. Please feel free to copy it to your family tree. If you find errors, please contact me, explaining what may be incorrect, so I can possibly correct them. "History is a work in progress".|
I would respectfully ask that you not put moving "flowers" on my memorials. I think you would agree that your gesture is about respect for the dead, and not a competition of who can find the most distracting jpeg.
I'm also less of a "numbers" member and take more pride in having complete information. At least for my relatives, I attempt to connect all known/documented relationships and children's links.
Also, if anyone was a member/relative of the 841st Ordnance Depot Company, please view my link for my Dad's memories:

|Phil & Donna (Stricklan) Whitaker||RE: Mattie Pauline Stricklan Chastain|
Thank you for letting me know of all the duplicates. I too noticed that my grandparents duplicates were removed.
It's nice to find relatives. I have never been to Georgia but would like travel there just because I know that is where my roots are.
My dad had one brother and one sister that used the "d" on Stricklan. Not sure why they chose to do that. I worked extensively at one time on genealogy but have not done as much lately. I know that there are lots of different opinions on who belongs to who. I can only vouch for my grandparents and my immediate family to include aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. My grandfathers were both deceased before I was born but I grew up around my grandmothers, aunts and uncles as everyone seemed to be right there in Thackerville where I grew up. My parent's and all of their siblings are deceased and I only have one sister left.
Thanks again for the heads up. If there is anything I can help you with on my family just let me know. Do you have your family tree posted anywhere?
Have a good evening. Hope to hear more from you.
|Phil & Donna (Stricklan) Whitaker||Pauline Stricklan Chastain|
Pauline Mattie or Mattie Pauline ....Strickland Chastain **This is my father's sister**
She has a listing already with her husband. See this #129140763. **This is a duplicate of # 60197654 that I created in 2010. She is also linked to a duplicate entry of her parents. I have asked for those to be removed. # 13986965 and # 13986943 are the original and correct parent memorials with marker photos**
"Is the truth really out there?" I would think her Grave Marker with her husband would point to the way it should probably be listed now. Even though her Death Cert. is listed for Mattie Pauline. The 1910, 1920, 1930 Census just have Pauline. **She has a birth name of Mattie Pauline Stricklan. She was always called Polly.**
Even more confusing is the spelling for Stricklan and Strickland. **The name has no "d". Trust me. That was my maiden name. My dad had one brother that used the "d". My memorials have marker photos of Polly parents.**
But hey, I'm just a distant relative. I know nothing. **I grew up with Polly and John**
Just consider consolidating the 2 memorials.
**Whoever added the duplicates everywhere has created a mess that will take some work to correct**.

The Daughters of the American Revolution, John Abston Chapter, has allocated a fairly large sum of money to preserve this cemetery. Once they are finished, I'll send you new photos.

You are Welcome Dan, do you need any of the other Stimson's grave photo's or information at Abston Cemetery or do you have it all? Have you gotten the ones that are buried in Mckinney TX?

If you haven't already seen this site, there are a lot of Stimsons at John Abston Cemetry, Collin Colunty Lavon Texas. You can see all their tombstones at:
The red on the stones is chalk so you can see the dates better.
I will still go out and take a photo if you wish. It's only about 18 miles from my home.

If you click on the gravestone pics posted, you'll see the captions. I just wanted to add a little more info on what I observed wile taking the pics. Please feel free to modify or delete the captions.
OBTW, do you own a Scotty? We've had two (one at a a time): Angus & Winston. They are, definitely, a unique breed!

I've posted a new, tight shot of Dora's headstone on her memorial. If it isn't clear enough, I'll be glad to try again.
