John or Joseph Martin
I am researching the Martin son of James & Priscilla Martin. Other census records have his name as Joseph.
There are 2 memorials you recorded for 2 Martins buried in New Hope Cemetery in Mississippi.
#34849709 (recorded in 2009) with picture of tombstone for Joseph T Martin. you cannot see dates so birth & death are unknown. the only info on stone is CSA record of service in Civil War, in Co B 2nd Miss Infantry
#29720357 (recorded in 2008) for John Thomas Martin with birth date that is in same year as Joseph
No tombstone picture. the interesting thing is same CSA record of service, same Co B 2nd Miss Infantry.

I do not have any record of brothers John & Joseph. Is there a chance that these are the same person? Or is there a grave marker for John Thomas?

Would love to get this resolved for my records.

Hello Jerry, do you have any information on Mary and Chareles Owen. Mary is my great aunt, who lived in Nashville, Tennesee. Specifically, I am doing ancestry search and cannot find a lot of information on them.

thank you

Rutherford Cemetery
Hi Jerry.
You are in charge of the old Rutherford Cemetery in Tippah County. I'm related to all those buried there. My brother & I are going to spend a week or so in August 2017 cleaning it up and taking photos and the placement of the graves. When fineshed we will be putting it all on the national regester. I was wanting to know if you would transfer the graves over to me so I can add any new information I find to the find a grave site. Thank You in advance.

RE: Memorial 96210941 - Minnie Hall
Thank you so much - I will be sure to do that - In fact, I will include it in the title of the photo. I always credit the photographer - it is a thankless job you do for those of use who cannot and I appreciate it more than you know.

Memorial 96210941 - Minnie Hall
May I have your permission to use the photo you took of the cemetery my cousin's is buried in? I really appreciate the hard work you have done for me and others like me who cannot. These photos, which I use in the Death and Burial section of my relative's profile page (not the profile photo) add a lot to otherwise barren pages of forms and statistics.

Thank you so much,

With the birth you are showing on this memorial his parents were on 12 and 9 years old. Most genealogists indicate a birth around 1810.

Karen Graham
Martindale Cemetery (Walnut) Tippah MS
There is a Mary Martindale tombstone with the date 1862 (if memory serves). This is not for a child. This Mary died in the 1860s and is the mother of Riley, Thomas, Andrew Jackson, Theodore, Claiborne, the oldest son William, as well as 5 daughters, Adeline Owens, Martha E. Moore, Mary Dial, Matilda Alsop, and Betsy. Census records tell us she was born 1780 in Georgia. Husband John dies prior to the 1830 census, leaving Mary with three children under 5, two 5-10, & three 10-15 (Hardeman co, TN). John is the 1st (and only) son of Thomas b.1757 Bucks Co PN and Mary Welch b.NC dau of John Welch. Mary Welch dies in childbirth. Thomas remarries Mary Whitley. From the 1830&1840 census, Mary has a Martha Black living with her. She is John's aunt Martha Martindale NOT Mary's mother as some have speculated. She is Thomas' younger sister b. 1760 Bucks Co, Pennsylvania, and is on many land deeds with their father William (b.1723). I have always thought it a shame that no-one knows who this Mary really is, and she raised 11 children.

Jerry: You have a photo of the public location sign of the Florence Cemetery in Florence [Lauderdale County] Alabama which would like to use for my genealogy records--as I have several family members buried there.

May I please have your permission to copy your photo from for the purpose of using on my site?

Jerry - would you mind posting your picture from this "unknown" Rutherford and placing it under 161348182?

If you do not mind, you can delete this one, as I have all the correct information under the other.
