Bio and Links
I don't have a US zip code as I live in Osoyoos, British Columbia Canada.
Lucky for me 90% of my family heritage on my fathers side are from Virginia, Missouri, Arkansas, & Oklahoma. Most of my distant family members are now living in California & Texas.

RE: Arthur Locke Acorn's wife
The marriage information was already on the memorial from the familysearch transcription. Now that they're online, I corrected the spelling of Morrish (familysearch had it as Morish). See #97801321.

Have a nice weekend!

Hello Mel,
Could you resend me the parent links for little Ralph Petty. The numbers you provided are a "No Match". You did not provide the names so I was unable to do a search for them.

RE: Thomas Dale
It is so easy to duplicate a memorial. We all have done it & I always appreciate it when someone lets me know that is what I have done.

The volunteers will need you to call Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. SH will not provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed to in order for requests to be filled. Once you have the location, please add it to your request.

You can also go through the SH website at this address:

Click the third tab that says "Other Requests." Fill in the blanks. Where it says: " What is your request in regard to?" use the drop down menu and select "other." In the message put the name and birth and death dates of the person you are looking for and that they are buried at Sparkman Hillcrest in Dallas, Texas. Once SH has replied, add the information to your photo request.

Thank you for your help.

Scarborough updates

Thanks for the updates for Lula Scarborough and her husbands. Since you are apparently related through the Tucker family, I would be more than happy to transfer their memorials to you (if you are interested).

RE: Evelyn
Mel: I would change her memorial to other Union Cemetery in Screven County where the other family members are buried and put in a photo request. It seems logical that she would have been buried there and me not finding her or any other Pitts in Union Cemetery Springfield makes me think that you are correct thinking that. :) Stephanie

RE: Mosey Family

It's actually easier to do it through the edit function on memorials--that way I get an email with a link to each of the memorials that I'm adding info to. If the Word document is easier for you, I can work with that, but would prefer the edit function if I had a choice. Thanks! :)

Eden Reed
Hello - Am I correct in assuming that Eden and his first wife divorced one another? I normally don't link divorced couples.

RE: Headstone Picture request
Thanks for the reply! I know how genealogy information can leapfrog and things get lost in the shuffle. Glad you had someone who could take the pics for you. Makes the Cedar Memorial Gardens list far less daunting!
