Carl, Thank you for the flowers & note left on our sweet Grandson's memorial. It is five years today, times have been hard since that day. It will never be the same again but we are managing. Every day that passes we are healed a little more. Our daughter, JJ's mother, is pregnant again and we hope this will help her to heal as well. We all await the day that we will be reunited with our sweet little guy. Blessings to you & your family.

RE: Death Place
My apologies. I've never sent a message before. Assumed there was a link with the memorial# of the page I was on. Done so many searches today I can't remember. It should be connected to a Mankins or Charles Brumet Russell.

An Isabelle Gray mystery
Hi Carl - I'm afraid I'd lost your email address so this is the only way I could think to contact you.

I was trying to tie up a few loose ends, and one of them is Jack Bronston.

John Hisel Gray was lifelong friends with his Army buddy Frank Forsyth. Frank's daughter clearly remembers Isabelle, with Bedie, John, and their children piling into a car and heading off looking for work. I would guess this was sometime in the early 30's. Jack, however, was not in the group and she does not know where he was. I have not been able to find any record of death for him.

Do you have any idea what happened to him?

Samuel Smith
Hello Carl,
I am the great x4 grandaughter of Samuel and Mary Smith. I wanted to thank you for adding a picture of Samuel. I added one of him but it is from a book my mother got at a Smith family reunion many years ago and it is not very clear. I've never seen such a good picture of him, so I thank you!

Thanks; I am an amateur genealogist, just a hobby. Is the memorial a picture of the grave? I have been looking a several and am not sure which one we're referring to. Best, Lloyd

Jenny Martin Hartin 1830 census
Hi Carl- I think I've just found Jenny Hartin in the 1830 census. In Giles County, TN a JC Hartin (he is listed as Harter in the Ancestry record but the original US census looks like Hartin) has a woman 60-69 years old in the house. I thought you would like to know this. :-) Best, Dana

Hi Carl, Thank you for putting Kristen Anne Wood on Find a Grave. I am her aunt. I believe we have a Carney in our family. I will have to go back and find her, and we also have a Lemley in our tree also. How are we related to you. Thank You, Pam. Also Alan Lewis is my second cousin.

RE: Mary Carroll
Wow. My mom (Alice) is one of Mary & Warner (Buck) Carroll's 15 children. I have been doing a little research on this side of the family, to no avail. It halts at David and Betty Woods on Franks side. And, I have absolutely no info on the Evans side. I have Zeke Evans and Sarah J Hall as Sarah Evans parents.

RE: Harry and Laura V. Carney
I have lots of pics of Harry and Laura. We were very close. I was wondering about others in the family. Anyway, yes, I agree about "Bill". Story we have is that he went out for cigarettes and never ever came back.

You have the correct Mary Jane and Earnest. I believe she's buried in Morgantown.

RE: Harry and Laura V. Carney
Wow that's interesting! I've been working on ancestry. Does your wife have information or pictures of the family that she would like to share?

Sure you can transfer my grandparents to me. Thanks for all the ones you've put online!!! It's really helpful.

You wouldn't by chance know of an Earnest or Ernest Suter died about 1894 I would believe in Marshall Co. He was married to Mary Jane Yoho. He was born about 1850 in Monroe Co, Ohio.

Anyway thank you!!

Hi Carl, Good to hear from you. Did you receive the much improved photo of James Althair (him sitting with three other men)? If not I will send you another. We are doing fine. However, most of my family was affected by the recent Oklahoma earthquakes (4.7 & 5.6) both emotionally and financial. We are experiencing after shocks daily. (However, they are not too severe.) Most insurance written in Oklahoma had earthquake exclusions. My niece whose home was located in the epicenter of the quake had the most damage (appx $30 - 40 thousand dollars). Other people in the area lost their homes entirely. Needless to say we are not fond of earthquakes - absolutely no warning!
Take care, Bonnie

RE: your memorials
Thanks Carl, I appreciate that. The loss of Honey pulled the rug out from under me. Its not been two weeks and I still feel like the wind was knocked out of me. I heard someone say, "Heaven wouldn't be Heaven without our pets". I think that is true. I have to cling to that. Thanks.

RE: Cook Walden-Pflugerville
I understand your frustration. I get a lot of request for that graveyard. I feel their decesion is based more on the fact they don't want to have to look up the information. But he is warning me that even if I know the information I could be prosecuted for taking the picture and "publishing" it. It seems there must be something we can do but I don't know what.

I received this email message today:

Dear Mrs. Wilcox,

I was forwarded your message to Janie Lang earlier. Unfortunately we are unable to honor requests for grave locations by persons whom we know have the intent of photographing and publishing photos of interment rights without the knowledge or consent of the immediate family and property owner. The places of interment and memorials trusted to our care are sacred and are held in the same regard as if they were the person that they represent. We would consider, as would many of our families, the unauthorized publication of images of gravesites to be a serious invasion of privacy. In addition, some of the many cultures which we serve consider the imaging of a grave to be religiously offensive. We understand that many people would not take issue and may not even understand why there are those that would. However, we must remain committed to upholding the highest standards of privacy for our clients and their families.

In addition, the unauthorized publication of photos taken of private property or of persons, as our gravesites are treated, is actionable by both the property owner and next of kin. In any publication, the image belongs to both the photographer and the person in the image and may not be published without the consent of both. In addition to the privacy of our families, we also believe this policy protects us and ultimately you from what could be serious liability. We do appreciate your hard work and what you do in volunteering in this worthy endeavor. We remain willing to assist in any case where proper authorization and release of liability can be obtained from both the interment right owner and legal next of kin. Please feel free to contact me personally if you would like to discuss this matter further.

Respectfully yours,

Robert J. Shalvey

RE: Neighbors of the Abbotts :)
Hi Carl,
We had a yellow Corvair Monza Spyder for a short while, late 1966, snazzy used car, but it through a rod 3 weeks later (boy, were we unhappy with the dealer, taking advantage of college kids, tsk tsk) and we then got an Opel Kadet, nothing but seats inside, lol, just direct heat and no ac, a 4 cylinder, but it got us down to Houston for the first job. The car I remember Ray and Marilyn had was a Mustang...we went to the drive in theater in it, and wherever else we used to go that we could afford. Maybe they had a Corvair before that...I just don't recall. Before we bought the old Corvair we had my old 59 Ford and then the 61 Chevy that had been my husband's grandmother's car. Goodness, memory tells me we started with my Ford and Scott's Mercury Comet, then some old 49 Ford that he painted red with a brush, lol, and a motorcycle he road to classes, got rid of those for a few $$. Well, that was a nice trip down memory lane.
