RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 66588444 for John Franklin Martin
Oh Jere, that would be amazing. I love seeing my ancestors handwriting! If you wouldn't mind sending the photo also? I think it would be interesting to see if it matches any of the dozens of unidentified family photos that people have uncovered over the years? JPEG format is fine. My personal email is

Thank you SO much!!

Hi Jere,
I wish I could be of some help. I don't have either one of those names in my database or know how my great-grandfather might have known either of the ladies. I find it very interesting and definitely wish I could be the recipient of that wonderful photo. I wish you the best in your search.

RE: Memorial #77717494 Margaret Hunter Christy
Thank you, Jere. I have written to Lois and we'll see if she can help solve the puzzle.

Memorial #77717494
Hi Jere,

Memorial #77717494, which you maintain, is for Margaret Christy, born Nov 22, 1822 and died Apr 4, 1894, buried in Kinsman, Trumbull County, Ohio. Oddly, another Margaret Christy with the exact same birth and death dates is buried in Old Annandale Cemetery, Butler Co, PA, memorial #61466754. Neither memorial shows a photo of the inscription. Do you have a photo of the inscription? I am also asking the person who is maintaining the other memorial.

You're very welcome. Sorry for the delay, but I was on the road and had to wait till I got home to check. Sorry I couldn't have been more help.

RE: Julia Simmons Hunter # 38061325
No. I'm sorry. That's all I have. Years ago Find a Grave would only accept very small photos so that's how I took them. Happily they now accept more useable ones.

He is not a relative of mine but if you transfer ownership I would make sure that his memorial is properly maintained. He is a hero to me and many other people here in Southern California.

He is not a relative. I just wanted to honor those who are fighting for the rights of the Israeli people. I had put him on, and then discovered yours. (removed mine) Helen

My maiden name is Christy and I am "trying" to do family history for us. I will add my e-mail address in hopes we can connect and compare notes, if you are also a Christy hunter. Thank you, Betty

RE: Arena Becham Taylor # 23725832
Jere, the name Green is popular name in the Beckham family. Green's father's name is William Green Beckham. But there are a couple of them. Still trying to locate her parents.

Yes, I am related, but distantly. I am trying to fill in the blanks and make links to all the Beckham's on Find A Grave. It will make it so much easier for everyone researching the Beckham family.

Also, Arena's maiden name is missing the K, in Beckham.

RE: Joseph Patterson # 30333934
Yes, my mother was a PATTERSON but not from this line. Joseph and his line comes from Franklin County, VA but all I can go back to is 1810 with mine and they may be connected. Who knows.

With regard to Lucy Margaret Hatcher Patterson's memorial #30333936, I cannot find the email from the family member who told me that Lucy was James' 2nd wife. I did however find a marriage certificate for a James Patterson marrying a Rosa B Keen on March 8, 1891. I also see in someone else's family tree that Rosa died January 14, 1892 in Patrick County, Virginia. I do not know where she is buried.
