Mary Winkler
You ask me to delete a duplicate listing for Mary Winkler in the Providence Baptist Cemetery. Could you tell me what cemetery the other one is in?

My 2nd Great Grand-parents!!
Hi, Donald! I saw your message on someone else's profile looking for info on Benjamin Proctor "Prock" Henderson's parents.

James Henderson and Mary (Henderson) Henderson. These are my 2nd great grandparents, Benjamin is a brother of my great-grandmother, Odie Pearl (Henderson) Knight, her husband, David Ellison Knight (my great-grandfather) died before I was born. But, I remember Odie very well and have access to more info on James and Mary if you still need it. My grandfather (James Thomas Knight, Odie and David's son) is my grandfather. He passed away several years ago but, my grandmother is still right here with us along with some other family members that may have info you are looking for if you haven't already found it. :-)

RE: Relationship
You're going to have to send me more information than just Sylvia Canales. Siblings are system generated based on the parents children. If you look further you may find that each of the siblings includes the person of the memorial.

RE: Link
Joe, Check your email, or message board for a request for edit since you already manage Flossie and her husband's memorial page. You may have to approve the edit. In regards to Benjamin Lusher Powell, I see he's buried in the O'Daniel Cemetery from the memorial page you already manage. I was wondering if you know if he has a marker? Thanks!
