Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello Everyone - I have been doing genealogy for 12 years-off/on. I found Find-A-Grave while doing research and think it a great indexing site for graves. And a great way to help families locate each other. I worked in the oil industries for about 22 years. Was a single mom raising two sons. I am biased but they turned out wonderful. Not only are they good looking but they have wonderful productive successful lives. Now I just recently married a wonderful retired marine and I do genealogy research. Happy Hunting Everyone - Gwen

RE: Mem 111067015 Alice Belzora Stanton Elms
That is how her name is spelled on the 1940 census.

RE: Gathings Req/ELmwood
If you can tell me the Plot # that they purchased I can check the plot maps for you and spare you a phone call. I'm the former Historian at the cemetery and still have full access to all of the records.

Gathings Req/ELmwood
I have checked the Elmwood burial logs for both of the Gathings and can find no record that either was buried in the cemetery. I also can find no record of their deaths in Shelby County. IF you are absolutely sure they were buried at Elmwood you may want to contact the Elmwood office and have them double check the records. Thx.

RE: Gathings at Memorial Park
Your welcome.
I'm sorry about the shadows in them. THe sun was setting; I didn't realize how bad until I had gotten home. I can try again on a sunnier day if you like.

I did not see a marker for Mary but there was a space with no marker on it next to the other Gathings (Anne Linton was about 15 or 20 feet further down the same row).
If you find that she is in Memorial Park, let me know and I'd be happy to go photograph her marker as well

Happy holidays

RE: Memorial Park in Memphis
I have another request in section K so I should be able to get to it this week if it stops raining. I'll look for the other relations you found too

Memorial Park in Memphis

You have a request at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis. This cemetery is quite large and without a plot location it is near impossible to just stumble upon a requested grave.
I am happy to try to fulfill your request though if you will contact the office and ask for the plot location.
Just let me know, or post the plot on the memorial and I will try to fulfill it in the near future
The office can be reached at (901) 767-8930

RE: 172296886 Reba Glen Gathings Singleton
HI! You said we were related, distant cousins. Oh! you meant you and Mrs. Armstrong? Sorry, I miss understood.

I thought you looked at all the information that I sent and you meant that you and I were related. Oh, well.

Would you like to have Mrs. Armstrong's memorial since you and she are distant cousins? If so I would gladly transfer her memorial to your care.

Kindest Regards,

RE: 172296886 Reba Glen Gathings Singleton
HI! Cousin. Nice to meet you. I read your bio after I sent the other messages.

Tell your new Husband "Thank you" for his service. Our oldest son is currently in the mid-east. I look forward to his arrive back in the states.

Are you in West TN?

Kindest Regards,

RE: 172296886 Reba Glen Gathings Singleton
HI! I have a lot of family from (and still living in) the Bath Springs area. I also have some Singleton's in my family tree, they are from Henderson County.

I didn't think I knew the lady, but Decatur County is kinda small so I have probably meet her somewhere around town in times past.

Are you related to the lady?

I can find a copy of her obit and send it to you, if you would like. Everything in her obit is in her bio.

I don't like to put complete names of living relatives in a loved one's memorial. That is why I delete one letter from their names as I do.

I did not realize that her parents had duplicate memorials. I have no idea which would be the actual burial site?

I have several ancestors buried in Bath Springs. Quite a few of them at Kelley Cemetery. I've been meaning to go photograph the headstones at Brasher's & Kelley's. I haven't made it yet.

Kindest Regards,
