RE: Ellen Chapman
I will check this memorial and get back with you on this. I only have a few days before I have school but if you will help me to recall...I might be able to get them to delete their memorial. I don't care for duplicates but at the same time not many cross referencing because it doesn't make Find A Grave look as 'clean' as it shouldn. Keep me posted on all of this to see if can remember to get it donw.

RE: Ellen Chapman
I seem to have pass this inquiry right on by. It was asked around the first part of December 2015.

Have to say that this family you are researching has an interesting history to share. I am not related to any Coes' or Halls' that I am aware of but

I will say that we have two families on different sides of the family which have similar stories like you have mentioned; however, the fammilies are from my Mama's family adn the other family is from my Daddy's line.

Both stories are fun to read but very sad. Sorry I couldn't help you with your research. I know you love historical ancestry as I do but my love for ancesry or seaching goes way back to when I was a child. I was interesting in history of all types when I was a chid, therefore the 'love' of history is part of my entire life. I was always curious about anything to go back and look for about even ancient history to current history.

RE: Ellen Chapman
I believe I changed this for you last night. You can verify cause I saw the email and thought I did it. You can add Ellen within your virtual cemetery for the Chapmon family or the Wells family if you have that. I noticed that many of those are added by all sorts of people. If you would like to add anything within the actual memorial then send me an edit or let me know if you would like to place a hyperlink within this memorial. Someone showed me that fascinating fact recently.

Ellen Chapman
Got your note and thank you for your suggestion. Sorry to hear about the last of the Wells passing away. This is so sad to hear for your family.

Well, as you know Uncle Robert was my Uncle as well. He was my Grandmother Shown's brother. I know how the name has changed throughout the years. One spelled it one way and another spelled it another way. Did you say that Robert and Ellen spelled it with an "a" or an "o" at the end? Even within my own family it was Chatmon, Chatman, Chapmon and Chapman. If it says Chapman on the tombstone I can change it but otherwise it seems fruitless. I know my maiden name from my my Daddy's family spelled Shown (which is how I spell it) from Shoun which is what my Great Grandfather became a Shown after his Daddy had changed it. What is interesting is my name started out in the beginning with the original "Shoun, Shown or Shawn' as being Von Schaun from Germany. I could also show how my Mama's maiden changed several times as well. Have a good Christmas and I will check this out for you.

RE: Kelly Family Cemetery
Oh dear, poor Ms. Vernon. Sounds like she has a lot more to worry about than reprinting a book! I wish her well. Thanks for letting me know.

No sorry, I don't know Ray Kelly. Hope you find what you're looking for.

RE: Kelly Family Cemetery
I found it. It's actually KellEy, not Kelly. I never did take pictures there although I wanted to. I rode back there to the house a couple times but did not feel comfortable knocking on the door by myself to ask permission because it was rather secluded. The graves I listed were from a published list.

RE: Kelly Family Cemetery
I'm not finding a Kelly Family Cemetery in my listings. Can you give me a specific memorial number for anyone there so I can see where this is located? Thanks.

RE: Beeson photo
Hi Linda,
I am happy to help. She is buried at the cemetery where my husbands family is buried. Please post the picture to ancestry, I post a lot of pictures on ancestry for my family history. If you should need any others let me know and if I can help I will be glad to.

RE: Geo Puckett Photo
My pleasure. You may certainly use the photo in your tree. Also note that I photographed and posted for his wife and three children.
