Dear Mr Rowan--Thank you for your work. I write regarding JCM above. He was probably one of the greatest American engineers of the 20th Century. I have added a memorial to the site you created and have offered City Cemetery in Miami to pay the costs of restoring his headstone, since it was vandalized in the 2007-2008 time frame according to a cemetery preservationist. Do you have any information regarding his wife, Ella Lane Meredith? I noted your citing King Funeral Home as a source, but I attempted to find a successor to King in Miami, but the trail went cold. I am a former federal prosecutor and judge who attempts to preserve things worth preserving. I appreciate any help you can provide. My email is Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Mark H Metcalf, Garrard County Attorney

Henry Obie Thornton
Hi. I am the 2 time great grand daughter of Rena Peppers Whatley, the wife of Henry Obie Thornton. I was wondering if you had any information on her grave. I live in Alabama so it's impossible for me to come there. Is she burried next to him? If so, does she have a marker? If so, do you have a picture? I'm sorry for the questions. But she was ran off from my 2nd time great grandfather in Alabama, Napoleon Bonaparte Whatley and the last anyone heard from her was around 1932. My grandmother never got to know her and she's always wondered. So when I found the date she died yesterday I was estatic. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

My Great Grandmother's grave
Hi! You posted the information of my Great-Grandparents graves, James John Hamilton (39068985) and Elizabeth 'Betty' Wilson Hamilton (41763801). Thank you for your work. I was surprised to see my Great-Grandfather's headstone. My family could not afford a headstone for my grandmother because it was during the depression.

I spoke to the care taker at the cemetery and he could not find James John Hamilton's headstone. He had the location but there was no longer a headstone. Would you have any more information on their graves?

I appreciate any help you could give me.

Thank you,

Liz Wheeler

RE: Rev Edward Synowiak
Yesterday was the anniversary of Fr. Synowiak's death in 2000.
I have been working most of the priests in order from the earliest to the present and have not gotten to his obituary yet. Usually if the burial place is not listed, as happens, I put it in as unknown and then hope someone else finds it. After I finish working from the obituaries, I plan to check the death registers of the parish where the funeral was held because the cemetery is usually listed there.
