Martha Rouse
Hi. There seems to be a little confusion here and it may be on my part because of the names. Martha Rouse (Watson)(Kirkland) Sirmon/Sirmons who married Jonathan Sirmon/s in 1820 in GA is buried at the Empire Church Cemetery in Berrien/Lanier County GA. She married in 1820/1 to Jonathan Sirman/s b 1800 and he died on his farm in a barn fire in 1850. He was the son of Josiah Sirmans b 1767 d 1830 and he is buried at Fender Cemetery in Berrien/Lanier County GA. The inscription on Martha "Patsy" headstone list all the children she had with each of her husbands. She had three/four husbands and she was born 1787. I can send a picture if that will help. The Jonathan born earlier and may be the brother to Josiah Sirman may have married a Martha Rouse also.

RE: Photos
My apologies, that info would have helped a lot. I was referencing Sonne Mae. I guess John Paul and Mary Ellen Tuffly would also be applicable.

The photos you have posted are wonderful. I really enjoyed being able to a face to a name...and to see such a resemblance in my mother is scary. Do I need permission to use them?

RE: Marriage Cade and Mary
Thank you again, Katherine. I'm also related to the Sirmans. Josiah Sirman and Catherine Kennedy were my 3rd gr grandparents.
I'm very keen on researching the female lines in my family tree.

Catherine Kennedy Sirman
I appreciate the beautiful photo of her headstone and the detailed bio.
I am hoping you can help me as I am searching for proof of the parents of Catherine (Kennedy) Sirman.

The names Cade Levi Kennedy and Mary Calcote are all over the ancestry trees, but no one lists their sources. I am applying to the DAR and they want proof.

Can you tell me the source of your informatioin?

Thank you again for the lovely photo.

RE: Joe Wells
You're welcome, Kathy. Yes, it is confusing since that area has tri-county boundaries with the cemetery in one county and the funeral home not far away in another county and the old hospital was in Fort Bend county. Many from Katy live in all three different counties and it's not so small anymore. Glad you got it resolved now.

I'm still curious... where was my name in all of this? Was it the cemetery photo that Find A Grave automatically adds to each memorial for Katy Magnolia?

RE: Joseph Emanuel Wells
Kathy, I did not post anything recently on any memorial. Are you sure you have the right person? Where did you see my name? Could you provide the link to this duplicate page as I can not find anything other than the page you created.

Also, if your uncle died in Katy, there is a cemetery in Katy, Waller County, Texas that is called Katy Magnolia Cemetery. The one you have listed is in Houston, a completely different cemetery. From what I could find on his obit at Schmidt Funeral Home, it looks like you put your uncle in the wrong cemetery. Still, I find no other Wells listed in either cemetery.

I understand it is very upsetting when someone duplicates a memorial page, especially if non-related. I hope you can get the issue resolved. But, please understand that you need to provide me with enough information, and that it is equally upsetting to me to be accused of participating on a duplicate site and I have no way to know what you are talking about or this Elaine person you mention. Do you have the link to her profile page?
Thanks, Kristi

Harry's dates are April, 1882 (Lafayette, Chippewa County, WI) and 10 Aug 1942. His parents are John Attridge and Mary Elizabeth (Melville) Roycraft. All are buried in Prairie View Cemetery, Hallie, Chippewa County, WI. I don't have the numbers available, but would you please make the connections? Thanks, Vicky
