Frances's name
Frances's middle name was actually Pamela, not Permelia. She was a great-grandmother of mine who used to help Dad (Edgar Crawford Gentry, 1915-1992) with his high-school Latin.
I was bequeathed a great deal of family material, including many pictures and letters, and in it the name Pamela appears as her middle name, but never Permelia. Her youngest daughter Lois (we called her "Aunt Losie") told me face-to-face, in the summer of 1980, when I pronounced "Frances Pamela Thrasher", as it appeared handwritten on the back of a picture, that the "Pamela" was actually pronounced 'pa-MEEL-ya', very much as if it were spelled "Permelia". Losie then said, "...and where they got that pronunciation I don't know." Aunt Losie was very lucid, and I'm sure she knew the spelling and pronunciation of her mother's name. By the way, for many years they resided only a few blocks from each other, in Decatur, Georgia.

Peter Douglas Hibbets
Hi, Joe

Thanks so much for all of your hard work. It is very much appreciated.

I wanted to let you know that I found some conflicting information regarding the birth date of Peter Douglas Hibbets. Although his tombstone shows the date 27 March 1890,the "U.S., World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 for Peter D Hibbets" and the "Peter Hibbetts in the New Jersey, Births and Christenings Index, 1660-1931" provide his birth date as 27 March 1889.

I made the change in Find A Grave, but I wanted to let you know, too.

Thanks, again

Mary Lou...

RE: Hi Joe!
That's terrific. We can see if it works, and if findagrave is OK with it. I am on our City Cemetery Commission, and we are thinking about opening a website that has obits for each of our burials. With so many people using findagrave these days, it seems fitting to link new info there. And we would add to our website a link to the burial's findagrave memorial. Anything to make genie research easier!!

Here is a link to an obit on USGENWEB ARCHIVES for your Mary H. Crenshaw memorial. #119238319 Madison Historic Cemeteries.

And if you have any suggestions at all, holler!

Hi Joe!
My goodness but you are famous here in Morgan County! Thanks for all you have done getting our headstones on findagrave. Do you know if it is possible to add a link on a memorial which would take the researcher to another website to see more about that person? Patsy Harris in the little Buckhead

Dear Joe,
Thank you for your reply. I hate to say I must have lost my mind the day I sent that correction. I can't even find her at this point. If I ever do, I will send you documentation. Thanks for all your work!!

Trying to locate West Cemetery in Morgan County. Samuel Skidmore and two of his wives are interred there. My question is "Where is it located?" If you know where West Cemetery is, would you Please! tell me.

RE: Minnie Tuggle
Find a Grave is having some issues during their upgrade. My apologies you didnít receive this information before through the 6th editing option "Suggest any other correction or addition" although this is more than I sent before.

1st document I see showing Tuggle is her maiden name: On the 1900 Census, Minnie Tuggle is the 7 year old daughter of John Tyler and Emma Tuggle. Source: Year: 1900; Census Place: Decatur, De Kalb, Georgia; Roll: 192; Page: 20B; Enumeration District: 0013; FHL microfilm: 1240192.
2nd document I see showing Tuggle is her maiden name: On the 1910 Census, Minnie Tuggle is the 16 year old daughter of John Tyler and Emma Tuggle.
Year: 1910; Census Place: Decatur, Dekalb, Georgia; Roll: T624_184; Page: 25B; Enumeration District: 0019; FHL microfilm: 1374197.
3rd document I see showing Tuggle is her maiden name: In the Record of Marriages, Book U, 1914-1914, Georgia, Marriage Records From Select Counties, 1828-1978 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations, Inc., 2013 from original data: County Marriage Records, 1828Ė1978. The Georgia Archives, Morrow, Georgia, "Miss" Minnie Tuggle married Mr. E.F. Tuggle had a marriage license issued and were married in Fulton County, GA on October 15th, 1914.
On the 1920 Census, Minnie Tuggle is the 26 year old wife of Edwin F (He was called Frank) Tuggle. Year: 1920; Census Place: Decatur, De Kalb, Georgia; Roll: T625_249; Page: 43A; Enumeration District: 13; Image: 213.
This is more than you might need but in case you want this for your own research, I want you to have it easily. Thank you for being careful. I relate to your thinking of provable details.

Josephine Thrasher Overby
Didn't complete my message. The Barton/Frances Oates Thrasher Bible records, which I have mentioned before, say under Marriages: Jackson M. Thrasher and Susan Samsom was married on the 14th of November 1843. I accept this record.

Josephine Thrasher Overby
Hi Joe, Josephine's mother was first identified in Dr. Marion Thrasher's "A History of the Thrasher Family, etc" 1895. and was based on letters he received. The letter he quoted was from a D. W. Scott, a Thrasher descendant & cousin. Marion Williams was given in the letter. There has been NO information found about Marion Williams. Recently the entire book was "up-dated" as it is full of errors.
