Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Texan, born in Gainesville, Cooke, County, Texas on 3 March 1945. I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served from 1964-1968. I made my living as a mechanical engineer for Bell Helicopter for 41 years and am now enjoying retirement. My interest in genealogy was really kindled when my father died in 1978 and I inherited boxes and boxes of documents.

Jacob Dunmire
I think you might have the wrong person. Pvt Jacob Dunmire would have died during or very shortly after the Civil War, so 1854 doesn't work, and he would likely have died in the Soldiers and Sailors Hospital in Philadelphia.

RE: Tennessee Evans
I agree with you. I had trouble finding her memorial at first due to the way it was spelled. I can't understand why the family would have left it misspelled. It might have been a financial issue. Thanks for the work you do on find-a-grave. Her sister, Malinda Jane Baskin is my 3rd great-grandmother. Diane

Thank you for the news clipping I will keep it with family files. I will not post in Find A Grave for the pain it might cause to his living family. Rose

Antioch missionary baptist church cemetery
I got all my pictures added to that cemetery. I requested one death date be added and one maiden name be added that is kin to a friend and she told what it was, plus I got the 8 memorials I created deleted. I asked one person to move their memorial and they have. I am investigating 2 memorials that I think need to be deleted because the people are still alive. I'm pretty sure one is, if it is who I was told it was.

I thought that was a separate cemetery, but I didn't want to take the time to try to get over 200 memorials moved. So I just left it alone and fixed the way I knew how. I don't envy you this job. This is why I told my husband I wasn't doing any virtual cemeteries. If I don't physically walk in the cemetery and see the marker or find a death certificate saying that's where they are I'm leaving it alone. My part will be fixed soon.
