Thank you for recording the biographies of the Hull family of Florida. It has been very helpful to me as I research my husband's family.

Mertice Eugenia Dooley Griffis
My research indicates that Mertice, Find A Grave memorial # 36811664, was a daughter of Walter E Carter, Find A Grave memorial # 69343783, and Marvel Pepper Carter, Find A Grave memorial # 69343582, and her name was Mertice Eugenia Carter (not Dooley).

She was married to Wilbur Jackson Best, 24 Sep 1930 in Greensville Co., VA prior to her marriage to Mr Griffis. Wilbur's Find A Grave memorial # 126545954.

If you'd like, I'll be happy to send you more proof of these connections.

Please correct Mertice's name and make the above connections.

Thank you.

RE: Joseph Thomas Townsend
I went back into my records on this grave and this is the info that the cemetery has for Joseph. Buried Sec. L9 Lot 399 space 1 grave # 7167 Relative Helen Townsend.
Also for Mary Helen Reno, she is listed in their records as Townsend, Reno Helen, buried Sec. L9 Lot 413 space 4 grave # 8228 relative Orville Reno. From my understanding they are buried 12 lots apart. I hope this helps you more. Glad that I could be a help to you on this search.

When I see a Farabee I always remember it is your line. I have been working on Oaklawn in Plant City and just photographed a Hamilton Farabee that was on census in DeSoto and Hardee though he might be part of yours. I haven't put the photo out there yet but as soon as I get to that disk I will.

Been a while since I corresponded with you and Rebecca so hope all is well. I have been working on Oakhill Burial Park between Bartow and Lakeland. I have just put a Samuel Farabee out there so just wanted to see if he could be some of yours.

Paul Curt Hernandez
Hi Jeff:

I've added Paul's senior photo to his memoriam page. Although I've kept a lot of the phone numbers for classmates I found, apparently I didn't keep the telephone information on the deceased classmates families.
I'll see if I can find it again, since I have his ex wife's name and will let you know.

RE: Paul Hernandez
Hi Jeff:
There is a photo of Paul in our high school yearbook. I can scan it and forward it on if you'd like.
In searching for Paul last year, I located his ex wife, Rosalee. They were married for 19 years and then divorced. She told me they never had any children. I'm sure she had photos over the years, but with not having any children and divorcing, it's possible she didn't keep them. I believe I can locate her phone number if you want to call her.
Let me know on the high school photo and if you want her number.

Please look at Alvie Farabee. Do I have a duplicate? Or is there another Alvie. Wasn't sure about the dates.

Please look at Louisa or possibly Louis A Pearce. I see you did info on the Pearces so I thought you might be able to let me know which name is correct?
