RE: Hiram Williams Sr.
Don,I'm so appreciative of your time and trouble. I'm in no rush and I do understand other projects. Thank you so much, I'm coming to Arcadia next month so hopefully I'll have better luck on research in person. Sincerely,Tania

Hiram Williams Sr.
I was just wondering if you have any info on Hiram Williams Jr's father? I can't find nothing on him after his marriage to Julia North Rivers,not even a death record. I've heard family rumors but other than that, nothing. Hiram Sr is my gg grandfather.I'd appreciate whatever you can. Hiram Sr has been very frustrating researching. Sincerely,Tania

Thanks for checking! I removed the memorial until I find out for sure where he is buried.

RE: Columbus J. Rimes
Thank you for the msg. I added a "flowers" remark to memorial indicating it is an unmarked grave. I don't know if the manager of the memorial is active or not.

RE: Annie L. Wilhite
Thanks. You may transfer the memorial to me if you like and should a more direct relative come along I'll do the same for them. I also realized last night that you may have also met my great-grandmother, who lived with the Wilhites for several years. Everyone called her Granny but her actual name was Bertha Wilson. She lived to be over 100 yrs and died when I was 14 in 1978. I remember her well. If you do have any old photographs and are able to forward copies to me I would definitely appreciate it! Thanks so much.

RE: Annie L. Wilhite

Thanks! Wow, I had no idea that you knew them. I've been working on the Wilson family history for some time now. Annie's younger sister (my grandma)was Margaret Rowe. My dad and I were both born & raised in Miami.

I'm currently trying to hunt down their son Jim to ask him for more info about the family.

Thanks so much for creating their profile here. Sounds like the Wilhites were good folks to you & thats good to know!
