RE: Hazel & Honey
Sorry, Tommy, that I have not gotten back to you before now but things have been crazy here. Bob just recently got out of the hospital and he said that he was sorry that he didn't get an email off to you.
Is the picture you were talking about the one you posted on Honey's memorial? Thanks for doing that.
I did post the obit. Thank you for looking that up. Hopefully, some day we'll be able to get back to NC. Thanks for all your work.

RE: Hazel & Honey
Hi, Tommy! You sent the below request to me to make changes but I cannot do them as I am not the creator of those memorials. Sorry

Please link Dr. Orville Patton Stone # 52070400 to his father Dr. John H. Stone, Jr. # 170800953
and link him to his mother Vona Patton Stone # 170801006

Please change the name Dr. J.H. Stone, Jr. to Dr. John H. Stone, Jr. I verified that information by looking at the 1920 Census of Itawamba county, MS

RE: Hazel & Honey
Tommy, Thanks so much for getting back to me, my husband was so excited to hear that you had info. Only a handful of his relatives left. Is Janet in Ripley? We haven't seen her for many, many years. Joe is in Wilmington but haven't heard from him lately. Yes, I'm on Facebook. I'll try to look you up; I don't get on there often as I've never really spent the time to figure it out, LOL! My husband said he would love to hear from you, Harry Woodcock,
Have a great week!

Hi, Are you related to Hazel and Honey? You requested for their memorials to be transferred to you. They are my husband's aunt & uncle.

Andrew Brown
Mr. Covington,

Thanks for posting Andrew Brown's obituary on the Tippah County Historical & Genealogical Society's FB page, which I had not seen before. I have proposed to you links to his parents and to his sister Elizabeth Brown Ballard. I am a grandson of his sister Sarah Miller Brown Thomas.

Happy March!

Sarah A. Whitlow Holcombe # 36551023

Can I get you to take a look at the edit I sent you a few weeks ago? I am trying to add James Mosley Whitlow as Sarah Whitlow Holcombe's father. If you go to your "Edits" tab in your FindaGrave profile you should see it.
