Just today i stumbled upon this website while google searching my father's name (in the title) and noticed you sent virtual flowers and had also uploaded some pictures of him and his gravestone. I'm assuming the pictures are all publicly accessible but the flowers are making me wonder if you knew him at all? Just simply wondering.
Yes, I saw that on Harry's death certificate, also. The M could be an error when someone was reading Norton. There are plenty of errors in the information given by informants on death certificates. I'm trying to get my Granny's changed right now. It's not a good time to give information...when you are grieving.
Death certificate also lists both of his parents as being from Mississippi...so these things get in a mess.
Even on the WWI Draft Card, on the top, in someone else's handwriting, the N looks like an M. On Harry's signature, he didn't cross his t, either, so we all make mistakes.
His wife was listed as Amanda Adline (short for Addie, I'm sure) so this is a good little extra!
If you have and use email, my email address is listed on my page.
Mabel Perkins Clive...SORRY about that! Please delete the James and Harriett message! I had that census saved as a possible check...not a FACT and pulled from the wrong place! We are still at a brick wall for their parents.
Mabel's first husband was born in Kentucky...that's where I messed up!
Also, on the census, it could also be that the census taker made an error. That happened frequently. If you'll note, information on one census is many times different on a previous or later census. So it's not always dependable, but it's what we've got and we're thankful for it!
RE: Mabell Perkins Memorial# 31105547 Thanks, Clive. No, I looked at my find-a-grave memorial for Mabel. Then looked at my ancestry and family tree information...it all stated Texas! Thanks for asking me about it so I could correct it! Galeen
Yes, Mabel Perkins was my husband's great grandma. I know Harry Perkins was her brother. Didn't know might be half brother. Thanks for the information. Very interesting about Al Perkins! Are you related?
Daniel Lescourt: Aurora Cemetery; Aurora, NE Your memorial #126774160 is a duplicate of my memorial (#120243441) which was created in Nov. of 2013. Oversights can occur and I would appreciate it if you would remove your memorial. I would be happy to transfer mine to you to oversee if Daniel is a relative. Thank you.
