David D. Franklin
I saw that you had posted a memorial to David D. Franklin - very well done! David would have served with my gg grandfather, John M. Whitmire, born 1840 in Jackson County, Georgia. He was in Company D., Third U.S. Volunteers and I am sure they knew each other considering the amount of time they served. Memorial number 18964686

This was a great story! I had no idea about this opportunity for the soldiers / POWs. Very interesting. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you very much for updating his profile. Lorenzo is a cousin of my wife. Parents are buried in the old Black Creek Cemetery, site of the Black Creek ME Church now the Voorheesville ME Ch. That site is overgrown, I photoed their stones. More dots connected. Bill Preston

Many NC and SC names
Abercrombies is one of the names I am interested in. Robert, I want to thank you so much for helping others through your work with Find A Grave. You really mean a lot to people like me who can no longer visit cemeteries because of age and health. I depend so much on Find A Grave and without people like you, where would we be?
I am trying to do as much as possible to my family files in order for my descendants and others connected can know their heritage. I am 87 now and precarious health issues. I hope you won't mind my making copies of your photos for my family files. Thanks in advance. God bless you in every effort you make to help others through Find A Grave.

Sir James Alexander Abercrombie Information
I was curious to see if you had any further information regarding the record of Sir James Alexander Abercrombie, other than what's on his record? He is my 7x's Great Grandfather on my father's side.. I am researching, and have come to a halt, where he is the last one I can locate. Any information you have I would greatly appreciate!

Look at memorial 32298779, how did you create the Ben and Stella links. I can't figure it out?

Thomas Walter Beebe
Hi Robert,

Just wanted to let you know that the mother of Thomas W. Beebe was Phoebe Walker Beebe rather than Elvira. Phoebe was Hiram Beebe's first wife. She died sometime after 1841 after having 11 children. Orson H. Beebe was born in 1841 and he was her last child. Hiram Beebe remarries on 21 May 1848, in Cuyahoga, Ohio to Elvira Wheeler. He has two children with Elvira. Eugene and Martha E. Beebe.

I liked all the great work you have shared on findagrave. My ancestor is Sally Ann Beebe, Hiram and Phoebe's daughter.

Thank you,
Colleen Wells

Hi I think you have a typo on Eldad Smith's memorial. You have his wedding day as his death date and then 2 children born after that. :)

Andrew Thomason
Young Zemeriah "Bud" Thomason & Clara Thomason Franklin
To clarify about Young Zemeriah (I'm convinced that "Young" is actually a contemporary way of saying "Jr"):

His first wife was/is somewhat of a mystery woman. Her name is given as Nancy Jane McCoy (1836-1866). There is no documentary evidence for her other than the six children she shared with Young Zemeriah. The "tale" infers that she was of Cherokee descent.

His second wife was Mary "Polly" (wait for it) Thomason/Basham (or Bassam)/Thomason. She was the daughter of Hiram Thomason (1812-1890) and Rebecca Montgomery (1813-1880). She married first Zedekiah Carroll Basham and after his death she married her 1st cousin Young Zemeriah.

As to Clara Thomason Franklin:

The date of birth given on your memorial site is off by a month. It should be May rather than March. Compare with the gravestone of her twin sister, Sarah Thomason.

J. Michael Frost
Young Zemeriah "Bud" Thomason
It appears from your narrative that the decedent was married twice; however, it appears from your family links that the decedent was married to the following three wives: (1) Mary Polly Thomason Thomason, (2) Nancy Jane McCoy Thomason, and (3) Mary A. Thomason Thomason. Am I correct in assuming that Mary Polly Thomason Thomason and Mary A. Thomason Thomason were the same person?
