Find A Grave contributor JMC has made a suggestion to you (3-30-14) regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Martisha Hurt.

I found this memorial while searching for the parents of one of her sons. I noticed that you've specified the cemetery but stated it was not available on FAG. I tried looking myself but soon stopped when I noted there were almost 700 cemeteries in that county and none named appropriately. I then did a search for Barret Chapel and found various websites that mapped its location. I was wondering if you wanted to create this cemetery in FAG so they and possibly others could be located properly. Would you please let me know what you decide?
Thank you.

NOTE: Thanks for this info.! Will do some more research and try to find this cemetery and go from there...
