Depending on relationships and individual personalities, sometimes it is the surviving wife who writes the obit, omitting information that would be meaningful to others. (Am sure you know that.) Happy to transfer management to you.

RE: Janzegers marker pics
Not sure why the request but it has been completed. I must not have understood your first request.

Your request.
I thought I had taken care of your request. Can you tell me what I missed.

What exactly does this mean? Several times I get an email request from someone that asks a question about a grave I have posted and I am unable to answer the question because of "no reply".

RE: G. Amans headstone
We were so glad to see your name for the confederate grave photo!
We have missed your findagrave requests this summer. We worry that the stones are wearing and will become illegible. We would love to help take many more of the cemetery photos.
Take care,
Photos 4 You.

Capt Thomas W Wilson

Hello BigFrench, love the name. I am inquiring about Capt Thomas W Wilson killed in action in the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House, Va. I am related to him, can you give any more information about him. Actually on Find a Grave does have a lot of his history.

Thank you

Ann Wilson Fisher

RE: Ellery & Jeanne Baker
George drown. He and Mr. Baker's nephew, Orville, were at the beach, I think on the Chesapeake Bay, and George drown. My father was a lodge brother with Mr. Baker. Mrs Baker and my mother used to go to the Order of the Eastern Star together. I was in the Demolay for a while. They were great friends. Many fond memories.

Ellery & Jeanne Baker
Dear Big French,
Interesting to hear from you. My parents Henry & Maria Bosmans were long time friends of the Bakers too. My parents were from Belgium and we used to live on 43rd Avenue. My mother used to do alterations and that's how she met Mrs. Baker when they used to live on 44th Avenue. We had great time with them having picnics and spent many New Year's Eve with them. I remember his bug collection well. I think my brother got it when Mr. Baker passed away. We used to play Yahtzee with Mr. Baker too.

Reuben Williams / Thomas Williams
Good morning, Big French.
Hope all is well from this SCV Camp #158, Lane Williams in Evans, GA. Interestingly, your Google advice for the above indicates my G-G Grandfather, and G-G Grandmother, Reuben, R. Williams, Mary Williams, of Monroe County, GA appears in the description for 'Find A Grave.' However, the 'Find A Grave' search of the above two relatives advise 'not found.' They both joined 9 July 1861 in Monroe County, GA in the 14th. Georgia Infantry Regiment, Company "A" i.e. the Monroe County Volunteers. Please advise suggestion as to where I may find the burials of the above two gentlemen who have listed in your original Google description.
Thanks, kindly ... and thanks for all of your hard work in researching our gallant forefathers.
God Bless,
Lane Williams, RHIA (retired)
813 Deercrest Lane

RE: Jones family
Yes, Big French...this is a private family cemetery including Lee, Lunsford and Megee. I acquired the picture and others from my grandmother M.C. Wilkerson Megee. I also have typed copies of letters during the Civil War from Edward & William Jones. I do not know where my Aunt Dorthy acquired them at the time.

Not sure which location your asking for. For the Lee, etc. it is: Traveling South from Fredricksburg on Hwy 3 to Rolling Fork Way (formally OLD hwy 3) Turn right on Rolling Fork Way, Right on Wilmont Road, Right on Greenlaw Road. Not sure the distance but the cemetery is on your right.

As for William B Jones, they are buried on private land in Jersey VA. I have a picture of the headstone if your interested.

Hope this information is helpful. If you prefer, you may contact me at

RE: Daniel Putnam Cross
Hi BigFrench, I'm not the creator of that memorial or maintain it. I just do a lot of research on a few of my ancestors and I came across Mr.Putnam's memorial. I'll let that creator know your information. Hopefully they will do correct info as burial unknown. Thanks again for your sincere interest. Take care, Tania

I type terrible! Sorry! I meant to type what your efforts discovered. :)Tania

Daniel Putnam Cross
Thank you so much for your hard work and research for Mr.Cross. It is very important what you discovered because many of us descendants will drive across many states to visit an ancestors grave site. That can be very misleading having so many of our ancestors in wrong burial location. Burial unknown is the best and honest option on these type of memorials. I appreciate what your efforts and information very much! Tania

RE: William B Settle
Dan, If you would like to keep the family together, I will gladly transfer the Kilby memorial. Martha

William B Settle
I took a picture of his gravestone and was looking to make sure I had the dates right when I found your memorial for him. He has a death record that gives his birth and death and the locations of each. It also has his father and mother listed as Turner Settle and Elizabeth Grigsby. The certificate states that he was to be buried at home. So they either changed their minds or had him moved to Fairview at a later date. I added the correct date and the location of his birth in an edit. Thanks, Martha

RE: William T. Haner
Happy to transfer mgt to you. I am working on a LONG term project updating Find A Grave to Spring Hill Cemetery's directory. Did you previously contact me? I got an email and apparently deleted it. Very sorry if it was you. Spent my first 57 years in Calif, never surfed and followed my kids to VA. Coincidentally my family roots go back several generations here. Dave

RE: Pvt Nathan C Herring, Jr
Nathan was my GG Uncle. The information comes from
notes in a Herring Family Bible that I now possess. I believe the notes were entered by my Great Aunt Jessie, daughter of J. O. Herring, Nathan's brother.
J. O. served in the NC 38th INF. Company C (joining after Gettysburg) His brother Lucien also served.

I feel sure that the information that I provided is accurate.
