RE: Martha McClure, Dyer CO TN
Wow I just went and looked at Fairview Cemetery record there is not a photo of Mattie McClure tombstone, the death record said burial at Fairview Cemetery. That record may be wrong the grave I found for her at McCulloughs with the tombstone has her name and dates of birth and death. Her family members are lined up buried by her, her son Dossey McClure is buried right beside the tombstone I found for her. Also noticed on Find A Grave that someone has listed 2 husbands for her, both with the same first and last name but different middle initials. The person who created that memorial may have been going by the death record instead of the actual tombstone of where she is buried. I hate that I already deleted the record I made for her, sometimes I run into husband and wives together that have died years apart. The surviving spouse gets remarried and they are buried somewhere else with the last spouse they had. This does not seem to be the case with Mattie McClure.

RE: Martha McClure, Dyer CO TN
Thanks for the heads up, I looked up Mattie McClure death record and it says burial in Fairview Cemetery. So I deleted the burial at McCullough's Chapel. Her name being on the part of the tombstone that had fallen down in the photo, it is the same name and dates of birth and death. But she can not be buried at both places. Did not notice were you are from, I live in Dyer County Tennessee if you need any cemeteries in this area. 2 of my brothers and a lot of my ancestors rest in this cemetery. Thanks Deb

Benjamin and Dora Baker
Thanks for your reply. The Goodspeed article you cite gives only the names for Benjamin and Dora. There are no dates. I have added commentary to their memorials which I believe sufficient to assign birth and death dates to Benjamin, and leave Dora as unknown. I hope that will be satisfactory. Are you related to Benjamin Greenberry Baker?

Could you explain where you get Bemjanin and Dora Baker's birth and death dates from.

I have no idea how they are connected. Cemetery is located on my daughter-in-laws family farm. I only had the chance to go there twice.
Sorry !

RE: Martha McClure, Dyer CO TN
Thank You for sending the information. Not sure where the other person got her information but we took our information from the Fairview Cemetery records and it shows both her and W. H. McClure buried in Section 16 of the Fairview Cemetery.

RE: Maggie Peel Autry #133609892
Just FYI, I always check census & any other info. to verify when I receive changes. I have changed her memorial to Margaret and nickname as "Maggie" as you requested since there isn't a tombstone. Thank you so very much for your participation too!

I edited Finis but to edit Wiley you must contact Wanda at the bottom of the page. She created the memorial. And if you have an edit for TN Baker McClure you must contact Cloninger

You are very welcome , it was Wayne who went out and took these. We always try to show the plot and take photos of family members nearby.
Thank you for your very kind words, it means a lot and we really enjoy doing this .
Best Wishes, Wayne and Connie

Dora Story
Dora is linked to her husband and children which shows Story is not her maiden name. The prefix "Mrs." Is used when the stone shows "Mrs. John Doe" and the woman's name is not known.

Martha Sophronia "Mattie" Senter Hall
Thanks for the suggested edit for Mattie. Find A Grave Memorial# 36954482.

I deleted the confusing notes that I had written on her biography. I created her memorial in 2009, so I don't really remember why I wrote the note about her mother's information being different on the headstone.

Looking at my family records, I am thinking that I wrote it because of the census record. I have now deleted that comment, too, because anyone who deals with census records KNOWS how "accurate" census records are! NOT! (My great grandmother, first cousin to Mattie's husband, was enumerated as a male child).

Thanks again for contacting me. You said to drop you an email, but I don't have one for you. PS, are you related to my Hall family? My email is on my Find a Grave profile if you wish to correspond.

Hi, Made the edit you requested. If you are family I will turn management of this memorial over to you if you want. I came across the Porters when researching 2 relatives buried at King Cemetery and "adopted" the cemetery

RE: Sarah M. Bolton
That makes some sense. I will that another look at things tomorrow. We'll get this right. Thanks Steve

Sarah M. Bolton
I see the problem you speak of but have to say that I am not convinced the gravestone is wrong. I believe the links to family are more likely in error. Can you give me any data to convince me that Sarah is actually connected to the people that have been identified as family.

Those family connections were added by others and frankly I did not vet them prior to accepting them. I will likely have to disconnect Sarah from these apparently unrelated family unless there is some new evidence of the connections. Thanks for pointing this out. Steve

Hi, --- I did manage to get Mary's husbands listed in the correct order. If you are related, I will be happy to transfer. Just send me a message through the SAC option. --- I will need to decline your edits, as two are for "no change" and the other one lists your intended correction in the "nickname" window. ------------Thanks for sending the correct information on the order of her husbands !

Thanks for getting back to me. I know there have been times with this new "Edit" procedure when someone inadvertently removes a link without intending to. I don't HOW it happens, but it does!

Re: Sarah Colean #23228964
You sent an Edit linking Sarah's father, William Gillham Waddle, to her memorial. However, the Edit you sent also shows you removing the mother's link to Sarah Gillham Randle.

Did you intend to remove the mother's link?

Linda Wallis
She married her first husband on the 24th of September 1889 in Des Moines, Polk, Iowa. His name was William H. Woolworth. He was born in about 1867. That is all the information I have on him.

RE: 34805509 Maude Shaver Barnes
Maude was married twice. According to the 1900 census records, her first husband had already died. At that time they were living in Texas. It is possible that she was buried in Texas to be near her first husband, with whom she had a child.

In addition. Bossier Parish, Louisiana and Harrison County, Texas are only 59 miles apart. It is also possible that Maude and Melville purchased grave plots in Texas while they were still living there.
