I am the oldest of 7 daughters and have 3 daughters myself. I became very interested in family history when my mother died and left me with a lot of records that she had painstakingly gathered through cemetery strolls and interviews. I have since digitalized all these records and added to them. As anyone visiting this site knows, genealogy is addictive. I call it my guilty pleasure and was delighted to recently discover this website. If you would like a transfer and are more closely related than I am, I will gladly transfer the memorial. Just click on the edit tab and explain your relationship. I am also delighted to receive corrections and additional info. It will be quickly posted. If the info is different than what is on the stone, please tell me your source. I don't mind if you use my photos. Help yourself!|

Thank you kindly. I will add to her husband's memorial. Glad to help!
|Robert Tapscott||RE: Murl Everett Sweet (1893 - 1920)|
You are right about the 7 being present on the draft card. I suspect that someone accidentally wrote Murl's age in place of his birth date and then corrected it. I very much appreciate your insight.
|Robert Tapscott||Murl Everett Sweet (1893 - 1920)|
Your input for Murl Sweet supposedly buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery near Martinsville, Clark Co, Ill, shows a middle name of Everett; however, out of perhaps fifteen or so official records, newspaper items, and other contemporary documents, I have never found this, or any other, middle name, only the initial "E". Can you tell me where you got this?
Also you have his birth year as 1893. Both his WW I draft reg card and the 1900 census shows a birth date of May 1894. The day of the month on the draft reg is uncertain but may be either 2/3 (2 or 3?) or 23.

|Marjorie Shaw||William Malcolm "Wylie" Shaw|
Regarding your listing for this Shaw who is my G grandpa, Wylie is not a nickname as is implied by the "Wylie" in your listing. He was named for his grandfather, William Wylie Bradford, Jr. His grandmother was Mary Ann (or N.) Gill. They were from Chester Co., SC. Mary later married a William Higginbotham and after he died moved to Smith Co. Tx where her son Robt. Lafayette Bradford lived. My cousin Janet Rogers and I have found Robert's grave, but not hers, so if you ever run across it, please let us know.
Would you mind changing your listing to the correct name, William Wylie Malcolm Shaw? Thanks.
P.S. I know we have corresponded before, but I can't remember what you told me. Are we related?
|JabberJest||RE: Dorothy Nicholson Franklin|
Thanks and you are welcome.
|InMemory||RE: William Hebron|
I'll let you work that out between you. I just happened across it and wanted to let you know
