Edythe James (#135742081)
Dear Josway,

I have some suggested corrections for Edythe James (#135742081), my maternal grandmother. My research with Ancestry and suggests the following:

Her full name is Edythe Ellen James, maiden name is Browne
Mother's maiden name: Southwood
Father's name: Charles Browne
Father's birthplace: Norway
Mother's Name: Cynthia "Jennie" Browne
Mother's birthplace: Missouri

The birth and death dates and places for Edythe James are correct as I can determine. The record date of January 30, 1923 is the date of her admission to Medocino State Hospital in CA where she spent the rest of her life until her death on November 25, 1961.

I came across your posting of Edythe James in Find A Grave through my research in Ancestry. Thank you for your work, finding out the location of her final resting place puts closure on that part of my family.

Betty has been moved to the indigent cemetery. I didn't see an email about this, it's possible it went to spam. In the future please use the edit button to send additions or corrections, it is easier and faster as I check for edits on a weekly basis. : )

Thank you, Pam

RE: County of Sonoma Cemetery
It's nice to hear from you Jo. I don't live in California, but hopefully you'll get to see Sandy. Shoot her an email to let her know when you'll be in town. It looks like there are 327 memorials in the county of Sonoma cemetery. Sandy told me that they were 351. It seems that some are missing. I'll have Sandy look at the FindAGrave listing and perhaps you can do as well. Take care and again my condolences. Thank you for all your efforts!!!

Pryor Holt Roberts
Would you please remove Pryor Holt Roberts from the pages of my paternal grandfather Hayden Puckett Roberts (1894-1938) and grandmother Flora Phifer Roberts (September 1, 1897-Jan 3, 1989) buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Charlotte, NC. They are definitely not his parents. Nor is my father Hayden Puckett Roberts (1923-1996) buried in Sharon Memorial Cemetery, Charlotte, NC his sibling. The other children of Hayden and Flora are Helen Mae Roberts Nov 21, 1918-May 29, 1930) and Betty Jane Roberts Sloan Harrelson (b July 10, 1922) both have markers at Elmwood Cemetery. Also burned in the same platt at Elmwood with my grandfather are his siblings John F Roberts ( & wife Lillian Marie Jaquins); Lawrence P Roberts; Sarah Roberts Cleveland ( & husband Harold G Cleveland); Ella Mae Roberts Steffey (& husband Robert P Steffey); in addition to these are his parents W H (William Howard) Roberts (August 2, 1884-July 14, 1935) and Ida Elizabeth (Puckett) Roberts (May 9, 1859-May 1, 1923)
Thank for your attention to this matter. Sorry, but Pryor Holt hasn't found his family

Jane Doe story
Hi Jo,

Can you copy and paste the Jane Doe story into her memorial? I sent that to you a few days ago via the Find A Grave edit panel, so you should have an email with the story. Thanks!

Making progress on adding memorials to CoSC! :)

RE: County of Sonoma Cemetery
Hi Jo,

I just updated the cemetery listing to add more information that Sandy Frary gave me. She works with the Sonoma County Coroner's office and also is the archivist at Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery as you know. Hopefully this great description and the directions will inform everyone about this little known county cemetery! Thanks for transferring them into the correct listing yet again!

Blessings back,

I was using voice text via my iPhone to write my messages on here and afterwards I realized some of it messed up, but I think you got the gist! Oops!
