John or Joseph Martin
I am researching the Martin son of James & Priscilla Martin. Other census records have his name as Joseph.
There are 2 memorials you recorded for 2 Martins buried in New Hope Cemetery in Mississippi.
#34849709 (recorded in 2009) with picture of tombstone for Joseph T Martin. you cannot see dates so birth & death are unknown. the only info on stone is CSA record of service in Civil War, in Co B 2nd Miss Infantry
#29720357 (recorded in 2008) for John Thomas Martin with birth date that is in same year as Joseph
No tombstone picture. the interesting thing is same CSA record of service, same Co B 2nd Miss Infantry.

I do not have any record of brothers John & Joseph. Is there a chance that these are the same person? Or is there a grave marker for John Thomas?

Would love to get this resolved for my records.

Hello Jerry, do you have any information on Mary and Chareles Owen. Mary is my great aunt, who lived in Nashville, Tennesee. Specifically, I am doing ancestry search and cannot find a lot of information on them.

thank you

Rutherford Cemetery
Hi Jerry.
You are in charge of the old Rutherford Cemetery in Tippah County. I'm related to all those buried there. My brother & I are going to spend a week or so in August 2017 cleaning it up and taking photos and the placement of the graves. When fineshed we will be putting it all on the national regester. I was wanting to know if you would transfer the graves over to me so I can add any new information I find to the find a grave site. Thank You in advance.

RE: Memorial 96210941 - Minnie Hall
Thank you so much - I will be sure to do that - In fact, I will include it in the title of the photo. I always credit the photographer - it is a thankless job you do for those of use who cannot and I appreciate it more than you know.

Memorial 96210941 - Minnie Hall
May I have your permission to use the photo you took of the cemetery my cousin's is buried in? I really appreciate the hard work you have done for me and others like me who cannot. These photos, which I use in the Death and Burial section of my relative's profile page (not the profile photo) add a lot to otherwise barren pages of forms and statistics.

Thank you so much,
