Hi Tonya - May I have your permission to use your photograph of my cousin's headstone in my family tree. Of course, I will give you credit for the photo and use it only in my tree. I appreciate the work you do taking these photographs. I know it is hard work.

Thank you so much,

C.M. Crews
Yes I am trying to find out anymore info on C M Crews. I am one of his grandsons. He was married to Mildred Crews which is buried at the same cemetery along with my great grandma Mamma Crews. Any info on any other relatives that are still living would be great thank you for your time!

Grave of Lewis Washington Roper
Hi Tonya,
I have tried many options to find my grandfather's grave, no luck so far. I thought you might have some ideas of where I might look for information.
This is what I know from his death certificate and research:
-died 3 April 1917 in St. Vincents Hosp. Jax,FL
-his body was removed to Clay Co. by Moulden & Kyle. No interment noted.
-his family was predominately Baptist.
-I have contacted; Moulten & Kyle; Clay Co. Vital Records; Duval Co. Vital Records; Old Hickory Grove; several other churches in Clay Co; and a couple of funeral homes in Clay Co. All negative!
Do you have any suggestions?

Hello and thanks so much for the picture on Find-a-Grave for James Randall Smith. It looks like you and I might be related through the Drury line of southern Georgia---I would have to trace it, but I know there are a lot of Drurys in there---and I wondered if you had any information on this particular person. If he is who I think he might be he is my maternal great uncle, being my mother's uncle (her mother's brother). My mother was Nancy Alice Daniels, her mother was Nancy Elizabeth Smith, and Nancy Elizabeth's brother was James Randall Smith, son of Ran S and Jincy Alice Smith. If this was a RAOK, you're still an angel for sharing it with us anyway.
Thanks again,

Ransom Elizabeth Daniels

I saw how you handle it when you run across duplicates, I have found some duplicates but I get some ugly answers when I tell the last entry submitted to delete. Sometimes they get down right ugly and I always write the best note saying I am trying to help Find A Grave and Staff to keep the cemetery records straight. Well to some it doesn't matter so I like the form you use and I am going to try. I was getting down about myself but I knew in my heart I am doing nothing wrong except trying to make something right. Thanks for letting me happen upon your form for duplicates, You sound like a beautiful person, if you get a chance go to Natatlie Mechele Bright and visit my beautiful daughter, You lifted my Spirits Tonya and I don't even know you. God Bless you honey, If I can help you just let me know. I am a pure country girl(old lady) 65. Well I have talked enough but my heart is happy once again and God sent me to you. Always a Friend Corky

You might like to try D2 which is fabulous and extremely safe cleaner. It is used at Arlington National Cemetery so you know it's safe.

Just wanted to say hello. I've been looking through Find A Grave, came across your name. My Grandfather was William Newton Crews, buried in Etoniah Cemetary, Bardin (Palatka), FL. He came to Palatka from St. George, GA. His parents and many of his relatives are buried in Boone's Creek Cemetary in Charlton County. I'm sure we are related to all the Crews' in South GA and North East Florida. Take Care. Doug Crews
