RE: Barnes & Elwick Thank you for writing me about the Elwicks. I've thought about contacting them, but I've never been close to even the Helwicks in my family here. What kind of people were the Elwicks there? Do you know? Just curious.
36681289 You have contacted the wrong person for that as it shows DeSchmidt linked William Wesley as a brother not me! Or did I link the other barnes to him. You need to go on those and send the message to the one that is caring for the memorials Of William and Granddaddy's great uncle that isn't his brother. I know who his parents were and do not have any links to him. That's up to the person who linked them. His parents are linked correctly but not two of the siblings. Contact the DeSchmidt in charges of those memorials. I can't help you.
RE: Mary E Durham Good morning; After looking at my files for cemeteries, I see that I posted this picture in two places. The Mary E Durham in McIntosh Cemetery is correct. How I ever put Mary in two places is puzzling. However, it is corrected and I have deleted Mary Durham from Gray Barnes. Thank you for noticing this and telling me.
Connecting with Family I've lost contact with a lot of the family over the years and trying to piece together for my children their ancestory. I'm the son of Jock Barnes Sr., Grandson of Roy Eugene Barnes, Great Grandson of Roy Herschel Barnes, Great Great Grandson of William Wesley Barnes, Great Great Great Grandson of William A. Barnes. I remember Aunt Lizzie when I was younger, when Papa or Granny would take me to visit her and Rudolph. Two of my children are buried in the family cemetary - Abby and Allison. Currently living in Cary, NC.
Gertrude Barnes, b. 1879 in TN. She is the mother of my aunt, Hester "Pat" Coolidge who married Charles D. Perrine, Jr. and lived in Glendale and Los Angeles. Gertrude's spouse was Edward Coolidge. I would love to know more about Gertrude's ancestors. Thank you. Bob
RE: Martha Buford Harper Barnes These are unclaimed cremains that I personally documented for this cemetery. Please contact Joe in the office for more information. All the boxes say is a cremation date and name. The office may not have much more information.
Hello Yes I got your note :) I talked about you to my uncle perry Baxter the other day he knows you. He visits Lena in the nursing home almost every day. She's my grandma. I remember grandma talking about Rudolph and everyone and we would always walk to the cemetery and help clean up or just visit and put fresh flowers down. I never met verline and I wasn't aware that she was even near back home. But then I was little and never thought to ask. My mom was terry lee and when she passed away I was 11 so my uncle perry took custody of me. It's nice to know about my family, I made myself a family tree and with this site I was able to go pretty far.
