I think this website is fabulous and made all the better by wonderfully generous, contributing people. I want to do my part. Thank you to all.

RE: Capt Benjamin A Lee

Debbie, try contacting Steve at the email above since he is the one who added the photo of Benjamin A Lee

RE: Capt Benjamin A Lee
I know that that info was sent to me as an edit but I cannot get findagrave to bring up the edits that I approved right now.
I absolutely must start notating who sent me the edits on the memorials from now on.
I did notice that he was in the colored troops so does that match your info?
What I posted is all the info I have since I always copy and paste when sent an edit.

Otter Pond Cemtery Caldwell, Ky

Pernecia Lester Jones and her husband, Lofton Jones now have a headstone at Otter Pond. I've already added a picture of it to their memorials, go check it out. I need information on Lofton Jones, actual date of birth, death and place to add. Headstone just reads year of birth & death.

Sarah Alice Weed Smith
Hello Debbie. I've been researching the Weed family, specifically Lillie Victoria Weed Griffin (1875-1909)buried at Coryell Baptist Church Cemetery, Coryell County, Texas. Her parents are Alexander Weed b: Feb. 1830 LA and Mary Lucinda Moor Weed b: May 18, 1840. They also had a daughter, Sarah A. Weed born about 1866 in Texas. 1870 Census DeWitt County lists her as being 4 years old. Siblings were: Irene b:1857-58, Melina V. b:1867-68 and Joseph A. b:1869-70. I have not been able to determine where any of these are buried. Are you related to Sarah Alice Weed Smith and could she be the daughter of Alexander and Mary Lucinda Moor Weed?

RE: Irvin Hollowell Grave Photo
From what I was told this picture was taken years ago and when a new owner bought the land had bulldozed the grave yard. But some say it was just neglect that led to the demise of the markers there is no stone now from what I understand.
