RE: Luvernia Leatherwood
Also, in looking at the history, It seems as though I only made one request from you.. on the 19th.
The others got second request a day or 2 ago.
If I may ask... had you previously transferred the memorial to anyone?
Because it is possible that my first request went to them, and just like with my mothers 2 duplicate memorials and my stepfathers memorial, and my fathers memorial, there has been a flurry of edits taking out information that is false, and then a shell game of sorts transferring to someone else.

I am deeply sorry that the timing of my email was during a time of crisis. Please hve my deepest sympathy. Also, if you will allow me to, I would like to sponsor the memorial of your grandmother once you have the memorial up.

All the requests I made were through the web site edit, but I think maybe i sent a second request to those people who had a "personal email" address on file as well as I know some people are not on here to check messages. Again, I am sorry for your loss. And I do very much thank you for the transfer.

RE: Luvernia Leatherwood
Yes, I just looked at the history, and I asked for my parents and grandparents and husband... but everyone she seems to be transferring them to someone else. I basically made the same email so i would not have to retype.
But example, 2 memorials exist for my mother... i requested both, and they must know each other because instead they transferred them to each other.. and took out the wrong information.

but thank you for the transfer. Upon my passing, I will ask administrators to transfer back to their original creators.

Amanda Silence Hazelwood
In the 1900 census, it has their marriage year as 1888 (says they have been married 12 years), but that may be to make the 2 older children "legitimate" if she had them out of wedlock.

There's an Amanda Silence that marries a D.R. Christian in Knox County in 1884, but she dies as Amanda Christian in 1913, so that 's not "our" Amanda Silence.

If you find any additional information, please let me know.

burial not shown in Locker Cemetery
Albert Ray Lewis, Find A Grave 137339054, is listed in Locker Cemetery, San Saba Co.. His wife, Alta Sue Todd Lewis, 1910-2004, is also buried there, but not listed.She was buried in Locker Cemetery on Monday, July 19, 2004, next to her husband, Albert, with Howell-Doran Funeral Home of San Saba in charge. Will you please add Alta as wife of Albert Lewis? Alta Sue Todd Lewis's grandfather James Jackson Todd, 1857-1941, is also buried in Locker Cemetery. No Todds are listed on Find A Grave. If you can help add this information, I will appreciate your work and help as I can. Alta Todd was my mother-in-law's sister.
Thank you.

Henry Phifer Barron (Barnes)
I noticed that you submitted an excerpt of the Will of Jonathan Barron # 103087123 on the memorial for Henry Phifer Barron Barnes # 26966023. Do you have a copy of that Will or your source for it?

RE: Mary Leatherwood
The information that I posted was from the record from Green Co. AL. Mine is Mary Hamilton Leatherwood.
The sibling links are done my computer I think so I don't know where the Burton links came from.

William Peace photo request
Raye, I just completed photographing Dripping Springs Cemetery for the Missouri Gravestone Project, adding any pictures to Find a Grave that are needed. I'm sad to say that neither of the Peace graves at Dripping Springs have a marker.
