Hi Robert, Thanks for the input abt how to find out who Find A Grave contributor DIEHARD is. I'm not clear abt DIEHARD's comment "All copyright infringements (photo/bios) will be pursued. Is the stuff we type in our family bios "copyrighed" ? if we type it? I guess I need to read the Find A Grave policies to get better idea of what we can or can't enter. I thought obituary info would be helpful to include, but I guess we should not do it. I never thought about NOT including living family members names that are/were published for public viewing in newspapers/etc., It looks like DIEHARD removed the duplicate under their control -because I can't find it anymore, and I was not totally sure it was a duplicate since it had info that I did not have, and could not confirm and have no way of communicating w/DIEHARD abt my questions you can't leave any messages. Oh well...

I totally loved reading your bio!! It made me feel like you were a long lost cousin. My mom's family were cotton farmers (40 acres in northeast Arkansas near Half Moon/Blytheville; I have many fond memories about jumping in the cotton carriers to make forts/tunnels; and of course trying to pick cotton; Even earlier they were share croppers in/around Beulah MS. Have many extended family in MS. Plus I was in US Navy, Hospital Corpsman from 1974-79; w/most of my time in Norfolk VaBeach area. Loved the space program and all the work that goes w/aircraft/missile/propulsion work. I'm also USAF brat and loved the time we lived at Edwards AFB, sonic booms, fast planes, cool UFO/research craft in the desert just sparked my imagination. Thank you for your service and all the great work you've done over the years. -Sabrina

RE: Sharon Gunter.
TY Robert - other memorial had left off the 1st name 'Violet' which is both on marker AND in obit - so I missed it and duplicated. Thanks so much for catching it! Sandi

RE: Drennan Tombstones
Just to let you know, I haven't forgot about the Kilpatrick cemetery. I came down with a blood clot in my leg back in the summer and just now starting to get back out looking up headstones.
