We are full timer RV'ers. We travel around but always check the photo requests in areas we happened to be visiting. We are happy to look for it and photograph it for you.
We take particular interest in stones that are about to sink, fall or fade, as these may be lost to us before long. Also any veteran, particularly WWI and WWII.
If you would like a memorial transferred, unless it's a direct family member of ours, We'll be happy to consider that, just SAC us with the FAG # for the individual and yourself...include your relationship. If its an out of guideline request, we will ask for some demonstration of the relationship. My pictures are taken by me and PROTECTED BY COPYRIGHT. No other private or commercial use is authorized without written permission. However, I'm pretty easy to get along with...just ask.
antoine Dronet in Bancker, La. Thank you for trying to find the grave of Antoine Dronet in the Bancker cemetery. All I have to go on is a copy of the Headstone Application for Military Veterans, he died in 1922 but they did not get the headstone until 1931, it was a F.L. Guidry that got it. But that copy says he was buried in the Bancker cemetery. It looks like they spelled his name Drounette on the headstone. Do you know if there could be another cemetery in that area that he might be in? Maybe more than one Bancker cemetery.
I've sent request to remove the Elsie Carl that I had previously added.
Spent a couple hours looking for Elsie Martin, who was listed on Baby's death cert. as the mother. The mother was Elsie Martin, married Junie Carl in 1935, according to the 1940 census, Elsie was born in 1919.
Thanks for pointing this out. Just a point of interest, my grandmother was 40 when she had her last baby and her grandmother was 41. So it used to be fairly common, until women got smarter. : )
I will continue to look for Elsie Martin Carl's death and burial site. Thanks Marie
RE: Hemby I linked James P (which I think is Phillip) to Henry and Adilla mostly by supposition. On the 1900 Census, Claude and Phillip Hemby are living with their sister, Rosa Bell Hemby Ham because their parents are dead. James Phillip Hemby is the given name on his WWI draft registration. He's married with two kids. Phillip and Ethel show up on the 1920 & 1930 census but he's James P on the 1940 census. It just seems strange to me that being buried in the cemetery with the other Hemby's he wouldn't be related despite not being mentioned in David's obituary. Those are my suppositions but I have no proof James P is the son of Henry and Adilla. If you choose to decline the edit, I'll understand. Thanks for asking. Carol Cotton
PS-At familysearch.org, there is a marriage record for Phillip Hemby and Ethel Puckett marrying in Illinois in 1911. His birthpace is listed as MO in 1887. Father is Wm Hemby and mother is Adelle Sanders. What do you think??!!
