Jerry Day
Jerry is buried in Heaton's Point. He is on the POTTS obelisk. He married Ida Potts on 12/25/1884. I received an edit request to add his parents name on his memorial, which led me to find your memorials. I will link them,

who to delete
I think I figured out who you wanted me to delete--Catherine W Thomas Minteer. So I did. I also sent a Bio for you to add.

I see you have Mary Ann, Catherine's sister, also linked as Isaac's wife. Is that an error, or do you know for sure that she was his first wife?

Mary Ann Thomas
I have entered five Thomases named Mary Ann, four named Mary A, and 21 just Mary--so you'll need to be more specific. The memorial numbers are real handy...

Then of course you'll need to explain why I should delete whichever one it is you think needs to be deleted.

Photo request for Hugh Reynolds in Washington Cemetery
There is no marker in Lot 70 of Section C of the Washington Cemetery for Hugh Reynolds. However, I will use a photo that shows the empty space around an existing marker in Lot 70 to fulfill your photo request. There will be a descriptive caption with the photo (need to click on the photo to see the caption). If you are not satisfied with the photo, please let me know and I will remove it.

RE: Hi Cousin--Lee family
Hi, It is wonderful to find new relatives. You do have one mistake in the line, father of Wm Henry Lee was James Wesley Lee, not James Henry (same dates apply-just Wesley not Henry). He was actually called Wes in most of his transactions & records. Do you have the pictures of James Wesley & wife, & Wm Henry Lee? Wm's wife died &
I do not have a picture of her. Where do you go after Wm Henry? The family died out in Kentucky but there were more in Indiana I think. I have a lot on the Drake family. My e-mail is, but it will change soon because the FEWPB stopped the service. Write me.
