Hi Diane

Thank you!!

It has taken me three years to learn that find a grave has a message function. I was so busy wandering around looking at photos and finding ancestors I forgot to look and see what other features this site might have.


Here is my email if you ever want to write and compare genealogy notes or anything - I check my email almost every day

Best wishes and gratitude for your interest in my great grandmother.

You're very welcome. Once you get that family worked out, I'd love the info for my DB. (Of the children, I only have death info for John R. and Temperance.)

RE: "Harry" Henry Elbridge Tabor
Dear Diane,

You thought is very kind and generous. But I do not want him transferred.

He is a very, very distant relative by marriage, and I doubt I will work on him anymore.

But your thoughtfulness is noted!
